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.

A Perfect Introduction to Caravaning

This was our first trip, in our first caravan and the experience was made easy and wonderful by Sarah and Dave at Woodville. Site is situated in a beautiful setting with many walks direct from the site. We didn’t use the car at all during our three night stay. Wild flowers galore, lambs skipping in the fields, kites overhead and woodpeckers tapping the trees. Woodland, fields, hills, gorges, waterfalls and babbling brooks all within an easy stroll of the site. The site had everything we needed; spacious, fully serviced hard standing pitches, modern and clean toilet facilities(showers not in use but looked good), helpful and friendly owners. We had two lively dogs with us but because we could access open country and had a secure field to off lead, next to the pitches, our lives were made so much easier than we had anticipated. Good facilities in the local village should you require them. We had a wonderful few days and we shall be returning.

We Agree With Every Review (Except One)

Just back from 13 nights (13 can be lucky for some!) - it became our autumn visit to France - and we loved every moment! ( The Med was just the other side of the Hill! Thanks to David & Sarah - We Shall Return!

5* CL

We arrived on site Friday 31/7/20 via the short access lane which had easy accessibility and were welcomed to the site by Eric. He was very friendly and helpful and gave us lots of useful about the site and the local area. The pitches and facilities were spotlessly clean and very spacious with each having its own electric, grey waste, mains water and picnic table. The site has access to many pleasant walks including the waterfall 10 minutes walk ( which our two cockapoo dogs enjoyed) and Pontesbury hill which we tackled and then dropped down the other side to the village and back to the site taking around 3 hours. The village being a 15 minute walk from the site had several amenities including a Co op, a Chinese and Indian restaurant, a local Bakery/Butchers and a couple of pubs. The Nags Head pub is situated between the site and the village and although we only had drinks they were serving excellent looking meals at reasonable prices. We highly recommend this site and believe it to be a credit to its owners and The Caravan Club. We are looking forward to returning in the future. Brian and Joanne Hewitt

Fantastic CL

Just spent 3 nights on this super site. Very friendly welcome and informative. Hardstanding pitches all having own water and grey waste and level. Didn’t use the shower or toilet facilities however they looked spotlessly clean and very covid secure. There are plenty of walks direct from the site. A beautiful walk to a waterfall was a hidden treat 20 mins from the site. The local village has all amenities you would want for a longer stay and lovely countryside all around. Will definitely be returning as it is one of the best CL’s I’ve stayed on.

Even Storm Ciara couldn't spoil the weekend!

On arrival we were met by Dave who gave us insight into the area. The Nags is well worth a visit and is only a 10 minute walk away. The wind was very strong and Dave took the trouble to check that all was well each day. Normally you wouldn't want this but in the circumstances it was very reassuring.
