Ludlow Castle is a ruin nestled in the glorious Shropshire Hills at the heart of Ludlow. This has been the home to a number of Kings and Queens including Prince Arthur and Catherine of Aragon, as well as the Parliament of the Welsh Marches. Towers and ramparts are all easily accessible and the Castle hosts several annual festivals.
Fabulous- wish there were more sites like this! Basically wild camping with the bonus of a tap, bin and the landowner's permission! Especially if you are on a budget, this is perfect- £5 a night doesn't add up so quick, whereas some of the expensive sites soon put you back!
The site is just a large field, grazed by sheep. Some parts are sloping and some are flat, you might need to drive around a bit to chose your spot but we didn't need to use levelling blocks. We were the only ones there and had complete peace and beautiful sunsets- the view from the field is lovely.
We had a bit of a laugh trying to find the water tap, which is on a tree next to the track, by a small shed. There is a bin by the shed too. I just knocked one off the score as I'm not sure where the chemical disposal point was, I had asked and told there was one but I couldn't find it. There was what looked like a dustbin in the corner with some sludge in it- that might have been it? But I wasn't sure, and there wasn't a tap anyway there to wash out (unless I missed that too?). That wouldn't stop me returning though, definitely hope to be back. Mrs Richards is lovely and we had a nice welcome and chat, and there is a super walk down to and along the River Wye.
Just remember your wellies as the grass is long and the sheep leave lots of little poos which are hard to avoid :-D
This is a beautifully peaceful site with panoramic views all round. We stayed near to the top of the field and cooked meals on a fire bucket, walked to the stream and the river Wye with our dog and had a very relaxing holiday. Even the weather was good. Very basic facilities but our solar panels kept the battery topped up for the 17 days we were there. Highly recommended.
We visited here for the second time in two years and stayed for 7 nights.
I think this is one of my favourite CLs. It’s basically just a massive field in the middle of the beautiful Welsh countryside. It’s surrounded by lovely views with a few sheep milling around; it reminds me of the proper old CL sites I remember as a kid.
There’s a nearby river where our kids spent hours splashing about, and they had a lot of fun making a den, playing on a tree swing and eating sausages from the campfire.
The farmer is a really warm friendly chap and we had some nice chats.
We enjoyed a few short walks from the site and there’s a pub a couple of miles down the road.
During our stay, we had plenty of great days out including a trip to the show caves and a visit to the play farm near Brecon.
We prefer the basic rural sites, but maybe this CL is not for you if you don’t like sheep and need EHU and Wi-Fi, but we love it. Despite the modest site facilities, we still take full advantage of the caravan’s modern features and thanks to solar power, have a seemingly endless supply of free electric and enjoy, daily showers, heating, lighting cooking and we even run two tellys! Give it go.
