The Anchor Inn
Why stay here ...
We have been a CL site since 1969.
There are five grass pitches situated in a well mown lawn field sheltered by mature trees and hedges. All have electric hook up and plenty of space. Facilities include, chemical toilet and grey water emptying point, refuse disposal, recycling, toilets and water.
The site is a hidden gem in the heart of the country on the Staffordshire Shropshire boarder where there is peace and tranquility alongside the Shropshire Union Canal, yet within easy reach of junction 14 of the M6.
We are surrounded by beautiful country side where you can walk the many footpaths, the canal tow path or explore the area by bicycle.
There are many places of interest within a short driving distance with golfing and game fishing also close by. We can provide permits for canal fishing alongside the site, which are free to Club members using the CL.
The site is within the grounds of our home, "The Anchor Inn", recently awarded heritage status of national importance. The pub has been kept by our family for nearly 150 years. It has changed very little in all that time. Enjoy your drink in the friendly atmosphere seated on the original settles at the old scrubbed tables, which have been used by working narrow boat people since the 1830s. Any entertainment is created by you or the passing canal folk. We are famous for our real ale and scrumpy and have received many CAMRA pub awards including pub of the year. There is no restaurant but we will happily make you a sandwich to enjoy In the parlour bar or in the pretty canal side beer garden.
Supermarkets can be found in Newport 4 miles away. The nearby ancient market town of Eccleshall is 4 miles away and there is small post office and shop in the local village of Woodseaves, only one mile away. Mementos and gifts can be purchased from our own gift shop.

Well, I shall be honest about this site. Yes it's very quiet and peaceful, that is because it's miles from anywhere. I was lulled into a false sense of security believing that it was narrow just for 150 Yds. It is not. It's a narrow and winding road for the full half mile and despite what one member says, there are not a lot of passing places and those that are are too small for an outfit. My heart was in my mouth both arriving and departing. Luckily it is not a busy road at all and I didn't meet any traffic. I dread to think what would have happened if I met another caravanner ...High Offley road isn't that much better either, that too is narrow in places. I met a couple of vehicles coming away from the site but luckily I managed to squeeze past. Be warned this is tricky.. As for the site, I personally think it was overpriced for what you got. I'd stayed on a CC site, 2 weeks previously and paid the same price! How can that be right? The site itself is ever so slightly sloping and this isn't clear from the photographs. Again be warned. The toilet is not the best in the world, but clean enough except for all the swallows nests and bird poo falling around you! The field is really quite big and kids would have a ball. I feel the owners should advise arrivals after 1300hrs and departures before 1200. Would I stay here again? No, the journey to it is too stressful for me...
