Why stay here ...

The site is on a ‘hobby’ farm where we keep three pet cows and a couple of horses. The site is in an idyllic rural setting on the Shropshire/Welsh border. We have recently included a picturesque, secluded meadow as part of our 5 pitches, so there is a choice of 5 hard standing or grass pitches. There is plenty of room for playing games and the site is now suitable for family holidays.

The site is close to the Shropshire Union Canal and you can fish or launch your canoe from our fields. Whixall National Nature Reserve is a short walk away. Whitchurch is two miles away and it is a pleasant canal walk to the Ancient market town. We are a half hour drive from Shrewsbury and Chester.

We have a laundry room with a washing machine and drier available at a small additional cost. We have renovated our Old Blacksmiths and it is now a high quality holiday let for two people, which gives friends and families the opportunity of booking up joint holidays. The site is dog friendly.

This is a very relaxed, non-commercial site – just turn up and you will be made very welcome. Advanced booking is not required.

Very Quiet with Active Insect Life!!

Lower Blackoe Farm
We initially turned into the main farmyard as that's where the sign is but, although we couldn't find anyone to ask, we did then see the meadow over the road. Having parked up we went in search of the owner, but when we did find her she seemed rather busy and distracted. She told us where the chemical disposal was but we never did find the information room or the laundry. Neither am I sure where the 5 hardstanding pitches are, presumably in the yard, but the meadow was considerably nicer. We were the only people on the site for the 2 nights we stayed. We walked along the canal which was tranquil and beautiful into Whitchurch, a really interesting town. When we followed the footpaths across the fields to get back to the site we came across the horse flies - or rather they came across us. This made for a rather uncomfortable mile or two and some unintended itchy souvenirs! Still, this is the countryside. It is a very peaceful site within easy access of the Shropshire Union canal and Whitchurch.

Nice quiet site

Lower Blackoe Farm

We parked in the meadow and it is very peaceful, the owner is friendly and helpful and you don't need to book in advance.There are no toilet or shower facilities. The area is good for cycling on the quiet back lanes. We also saw a barn owl fly over the site. We only stayed one night but would return if in this area again.

Shropshire rural life

Lower Blackoe Farm
A very warm welcome from the owner the views from the caravan were lovely and the site was very clean. We were the only van there during our stay and due to the lay out of the site we are not too sure how 5 vans could have all been accommodated on hard standings but for us as we were the only ones there it was great. The owner even let us exercise our dog in one of his fields
