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'.

Fabulous CL

Wrekin View Caravan Site
Along with friends, we spent last week at Wrekin View and can only echo the 5 star ratings from other members. The owners were friendly, nothing was too much trouble and they even allowed us to store our cycles in their shed. Upon arrival we were met by Brian and advised where to park informing us to keep well forward on the pitch to avoid acorns dropping on our roofs. There is lots to do and see in the area and unfortunately we ran out of time, we could have easily spent another week there. We shall definitely visit this site again. A big thank you from the 4 of us

Overall, a good stay

Wrekin View Caravan Site
It seems slightly unfair to offer any somewhat negative comments, when the owner is so friendly, but this is a review after all, so I am telling it as I saw it. This is effectively an eight-pitch site, with the first three reserved for friends and family, with the CL beyond that, in the same field. The site is long and harrow, sloping down from left to right, and if there were only the five pitches, there would be plenty of space, but as it is we thought it was cramped, as evidenced by many campers having to park their cars in front of their vans, as there was insufficient room to the side. Pitches one to three had hardstandings, four and five are grassy, and slightly larger we thought, but of course these were taken when we arrived. We were allocated pitch 3, even though 1 and 2 were vacant, and I got the impression these were reserved for regulars. Unfortunately, our pitch was next to the elsan disposal point. Having got ourselves set up, we were bombarded by acorns from the tree above, so had to wind up the legs and move forward 6 feet. The owner was apologetic, and said this only usually happens later in the year, but there were acorn husks all across the gravel and grass near us. Security is tight to say the least, with a gate and a recorded voice bellowing 'you are being recorded by CCTV' every time I left the site on my morning jog. Recycling had to be bagged up before being left in the bin, meaning extra plastic, which seemed odd. We had booked a week and overall had an enjoyable stay, but it was not particularly cheap and I doubt we would stay here again, mainly for the cramped feeling we endured.

Lovely welcome,

Wrekin View Caravan Site
We stayed with our motorhome. This is a very relaxed site and ideal for cycling. It is on cycle route 81. Brian made us feel very welcome and we would recommend it to all. The village of Upton Magna is only a short distance away if you need to pick up supplies. Thank you Brian for a lovely visit.

A Warm Welcome Awaits No2 May 2021

Wrekin View Caravan Site
Stayed at this friendly CL back in 2018 and at long last have managed a return visit in May 2021. Lovely Chatty welcome, quiet, lovely views over the Wrekin, good walking, easy access to Shrewsbury, fully serviced pitches, elec, water and grey waste Pitches are slightly sloping, there are timber packers about so just be aware. Despite what a previous reviewer has said the site feels spacious and there is more than enough room for van awning and car.
