Why stay here ...

The site is secluded and quiet with a view of one of Shropshire's best known landmarks, the Wrekin Hill which is just a short drive away and is ideal for walking and enjoying the splendid views.

There are eight pubs within three miles of the park including a real ale pub in the village and the majority of these pubs offer good home cooked food.

For those who enjoy cycling we are located on Route 81 National Cycle Route and for walkers there is an extensive network of local foot paths and lanes.

The medieval town of Shrewsbury, which is the birth place of Charles Darwin, is just five miles away. A busy town set in the loop of the River Severn with a Castle and a diverse range of shops, museums, restaurants, theatre and a cinema.

Other things to do nearby include:-

  • The World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, the birthplace of industry, with many museums.
  • Wroxeter Roman City (English Heritage) and Wroxeter Roman Vineyard.
  • The National Trust property  Attingham Park -  a popular mansion house and estate with a beautiful walled garden and woodland walks.
  • Much Wenlock  the home of the modern day Olympic Games is a small Shropshire medieval town which is quintessentially English. 
  • The Severn Valley Steam Railway which runs from Bridgnorth to Kidderminster.
  • The Royal Air Force Museum at Cosford.
  • The modern shopping centre at Telford.

There is a caravan washing facility at the site which is complimentary.

Free use of barn, with electricity, tables etc for 'get togethers'.

Brian and Josie look forward to welcoming you to their CL.

Wrekin wonderful!

We stayed here at the end of July for 3 nights. Brian was there to greet us and gave us a very handy folder full of local information on where to go and what to do. The hard standing pitches are fully serviced and as they are not entirely level you will find a plentiful supply of wooden blocks for your use. The site is kept neat and tidy. The shrubs and lawn are well maintained. The cesspit needs a funnel so that you are not in danger of being splashed each time you use it or taken aback when the lid is removed. This is only a minor problem and in no way spoilt our stay, infact, this site is just perfect for a quiet and relaxing stay. The owners are super friendly and the surrounding scenery is therapy itself- beautiful! We will be back 😊

Such friendly owners and a beautiful site

Stayed here recently for six nights. Fantastic views of the Wrekin. All places of interest are within easy reach from here. Brian and Josie made us feel right at home on our first visit here, needless to say we will return... David and Carol Tipper

A lovely, quiet and well kept C.L!

We recently spent three nights at this absolute gem of a CL near Shrewsbury and received a very warm and friendly welcome from Brian and Josie Smith. We found the CL to be very quiet and peaceful with a good view of the Wrekin, not to mention the surrounding fields. It also has fully serviced pitches! Brian also supplied us with a well stocked information folder which had all the local attractions, supermarket locations, doctors surgeries, hospitals and a comprehensive guide to the local pubs that offered a range of ales and good food! We swould not hesitate to recommend Brian & Josie's 'Wrekin View' to any of our caravanning friends and we look forward to returning in the future! Chris & Shirley Cope. Cannock, Staffs.

A quiet corner of England

An excellent CL with stunning views of spectacular English countryside. Brian has created the perfect CL. All the facilities you'd want at each pitch with added peace and quiet, but close enough to an assortment of local places of interest. He even provides an information book with extensive details on the local area attractions. I'd recommend this CL to anyone, we'll definitely be back.

Tranquil and friendly

Fantastic site that we have visited often. Now with water supplies and grey water drainage to each pitch. Surrounded by fields and close to the Hare and Hounds Pub in Withington who do meals on Friday night and Sunday lunchtime. Two other pubs, The Haughmond in Upton Magna and the Corbett Arms in Uffington plus others in the surrounding area mean you are never far from a good meal. A short drive away are Shrewsbury and Telford with shopping and entertainment. Ironbridge and Wroxeter are close by. Only a short drive to Church Stretton and the lovely Shropshire countryside around the Stiperstones. We are always well looked after by Brian and Josie who should be proud of their site. We have been coming here since 2015 when the site opened and we love the peace and quiet and the craic in the village pub. Very welcoming. Would recommend a stay
