Why stay here ...
The Certificated Location at Loynton is set in the picturesque and peaceful grounds of Loynton Trout Fishery. The site has 12 acres of water, divided into 3 well stocked pools, offering first class trout fishing opportunities. Situated on the Staffordshire/Shropshire border, the area has plenty to offer visitors within a short distance of Loynton. The pretty town of Newport is just 2 miles away but for those who prefer a larger shopping destination, also nearby are Telford, which is largely indoors, and the historic town of Shrewsbury.
The location is ideal for cultural visits too with Ironbridge just a short drive way, with its many and varied museums and attractions giving an insight into the Industrial Revolution. Alton Towers is always a firm favourite with youngsters and the young at heart and that is around an hour's drive away. There are also fabulous places for walkers and those interested in gardens - Loynton Moss, Hawkestone Park and Wollerton Old Hall Gardens being fine examples.

In addition to the trout fishing pools there are also tea rooms on site open 6 days a week from 10am til 4pm so truly enjoy your holiday and let someone else take care of the cooking.

Visually this is a stunning CL with views over the trout lakes and forest. The pitches are large and private although levelling blocks are required. The owners were friendly and helpful plus there is a nice cafe on site.There are however a couple of points to consider before choosing this site, the road that makes arrival very easy unfortunately makes it quite noisy especially early on a weekday morning, it was not quite as bad at the weekend. Plus the facilities are quite a way from the pitches which could be a problem for some. Ultimately though the wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we would use again.
