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.

Disappointing

Wrekin View Caravan Site
We stayed here in June and were surprised how tight the pitches were. We checked the satellite images to make sure there was sufficient space on the site, upon arrival found the site was split in two, one half for friends and family and the other half the CL. The pitches were short and quite narrow should you want to put an awning up, everyone parked their cars in front of their caravan in stead of beside it due to the lack of space. Worst of all we were given the pitch right alongside the chemical waste disposal point this was most unpleasant.

Great CL site

Wrekin View Caravan Site
My wife and I stayed here for 6 nights in July 2021. The weather was great which always helps and we spent quite a bit of time visiting Shrewsbury and "places of interest" in Shropshire and East Wales. Among others we visited Attingham Park (about 3 miles from site), Benthall Hall, Powis Castle and Much Wenlock and have to say we enjoyed them all. Shrewsbury is a great place to visit with stacks of history and the Museum in the town square is a hidden gem, and its free. Wrekin View is a great CL site with five fully serviced pitches on decent sized hard standings. You get great views across the valley to the Wrekin Hill and that's where you point your TV aerial, although we only watched breakfast TV as we sat in the sunshine every night just chilling out. The owners of the site live at the entrance and although there are no security gates, (there are gates), it still felt very secure. If you plan to visit, read the warning on the website about which direction to take to get to the site. You have to go through Upton Magna village, don't try and get to the site from the Withington/Roddington side as the lane is not suitable for caravans and very few passing places. The only negative I can think of is that if you arrived and the ground was wet, you might have a struggle to back your unit up the incline to the pitch, but that would depend on your vehicle/caravan/skill. The all important question: Would we stay here again? 100% Yes.

FABULOUS

Wrekin View Caravan Site
Wrekin View is a fabulous site, lovely views, well kept grass cut short with no clippings left and lots of potted plants. Water to each pitch which is an added bonus. Plenty of places & museums to visit not far away. But one (well two) of the most important factors of this fabulous site are the owners Brian & Josie... a nicer couple you'd be hard pressed to find. Thank you for all your help. We will be back if in the area again. Ian & Sue

Great cl site with lovely owners.

Wrekin View Caravan Site
Just returned from a 6night stay at Wrekin view Brian the owner met us on-site and directed us to our pitch which are hard standing and fully serviced,the view from the site is outstanding and very peaceful. The site is kept spotless and has an abundance of flowers and bird feeders spread around. Brian is a lovely bloke who was always up for a chat and his local knowledge lets you know to local attractions. There is a small village and a local pub 5 minutes walk away with good ales and very friendly locals. I would definitely recommend this site and we will definitely be back.

Beautiful peaceful retreat

Wrekin View Caravan Site
We decided due to present Covid conditions to cancel our usual holiday in Anglesey and stay closer to home. We didn’t have to think twice on where we wanted to return to so phoned Brian to see if he had any availability and he had. This site is a gem and its on the edge of a beautiful village with a lovely village green which is well hidden away but well worth a walk around. The site was in excellent shape and the flowers and roses that Josie and Brian tend looked wonderful. The pheasant didn’t visit the site this time but could be heard in the woods but the squirrels were still playing around the feeders. We had a visit from a thrush every day that was using a large stone outside our awning to break open snail shells and by the time we left there was quite a collection of broken shells. Again we arrived for 10 days and decided to extend another 10 days as did the people next door to us, it seems we cannot get enough of this beautiful site. We have dogs so the field behind was great to walk them morning and evening plus Haughman Hill woods was a great place to walk them with various walks to take plus a cafe that did homemade food. Another lovely holiday thanks to Brian and Josie and we have booked for next year x
