Why stay here ...

Woodville is a quiet campsite located in an area of outstanding natural beauty within the Shropshire hills. It backs onto the stunning Earls Hill Nature reserve and Pontesford hill. The site is located on a large field and each pitch has access to electric, water and grey waste points. There is also plenty of space for awnings. Children and dogs are both welcome throughout the year.

Woodville is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area, with many walks to be taken direct from the site. Within walking distance is the village of Pontesbury, which has a local bakery/butcher, a supermarket, restaurants and pubs.

The historic market town of Shrewsbury is a short drive away by car or there is a bus service located close to the site. We are near to several industrial and agricultural heritage centres such as Ironbridge, Bridgnorth and the market towns of Much Wenlock, Ludlow and those across the border to Wales.

The site is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, ideal for walking.

Shrewsbury is a short drive away and the National Flower Show is held here every year.

Welshpool is also a short drive and plays host to the famous steam railway.

Fantastic CL

This was our second visit to this CL. Booking is quick and simple and a warm welcome on arrival. As a few of the reviews below have mentioned, Sarah and Dave provide a fantastic folder for each pitch full of walks, local information leaflets and menus for local pubs etc. There is an amazing independant shop in the village which is well worth a visit! The pitches are all hardstanding and each with their own water, electric and grey waste. There are two toilet/shower rooms which are always clean and tidy. The site itself is just short drive out of Shrewsbury and really handy for visiting the Ironbridge area as well as the Welsh border. Powis, Chirk, Attingham and Wightwick (National Trust) are all a short drive away as is the Black Country Museum.

A winner, for sure.

We stayed at Woodville in the middle of June and had a peaceful relaxing holiday with plenty to see and do in the area. The CL has to be one of the best we have ever stayed on. The welcome we got and local information that we were given via a folder was second to none. The facilities were brilliant and the site its self would surpass any club site we have been to. Thank you Dave and Sarah, we will be back. Dave and Jenny

Everything a CL should be!

Everything about Woodville CL is first class. From the prompt reply to emails on booking and asking for advice on pitching to the warm welcome from Sarah and Dave on arrival (armed with a comprehensive folder for each pitch with details of local walks, pubs, shops etc) to the facilities themselves. Access is very easy off the A488 just past the village sign - make sure you take the left hand of 3 drives or you'll end up in the neighbour's back garden though. The final drive to the site is narrow but easily manageable. Each of the large HS pitches has its own water tap and waste outlet and even its own picnic table! The two unisex toilet/shower rooms are immaculate. There is a small enclosed area where dogs can run off lead and might even pal up with Farley the resident black lab! There is so much to do in the area - our 5 days really weren't enough. Apart from a day spent at nearby Attingham Park we walked from the site every day - you can even walk up Pontesford and Earl's Hill direct from the site, though it's a hard climb at the end! TV reception at the top end of the site was not good, which didn't matter for us but might be worth bearing in mind if it's important for you. 4G reception on Vodafone was perfect. It's a very quiet, peaceful spot and for a visit to the area would be hard to beat - we will certainly be back.

Awesome site and owners

We could not fault the site at all beautiful surroundings, spotless facilities and above all the owners David & Sarah are just brilliant and very welcoming. Would we go again most certainly YES and if Carling ever made CL sites this would definitely be one thank you both for an amazing stay.
