Why stay here ...

Claire and Jon welcome you to Snead Barns CL site situated on the Shropshire/Welsh border on route to the Welsh coast. The site is easily accessible off the A489.

The CL is 1.5 miles from the local market town of Bishop's Castle which has 2 microbreweries (The Three Tuns & The Six Bells) along with quirky shops, pubs, takeaways and lovely gardens at The Castle Hotel. Supermarkets can be found at nearby Churchstoke and the market town of Welshpool.

For those who enjoy walking or cycling explore and enjoy the wonderful Powys/Shropshire countryside where you can dip into The Shropshire Way and Offa's Dyke on route. The Long Mynd and hills of Church Stretton are close by too. Many historic beauty spots surround us including Stiperstones, Powys Castle (Welshpool), Stokesay Castle in Craven Arms and Ludlow Castle in the beautiful market town which is also a haven for foodies!

Alternatively just take a break and unwind overlooking the rolling hills and keep an eye out for the visiting wildlife.

Lovely welcome

Snead Barns
Easy access off A road for those who don't like lanes, this gives a little traffic noise, but nothing obtrusive. All hard standing, so great for autumn/winter/ spring visits. Owners friendly & helpful with leaflets on local area. Drive over waste for those with motorhomes. 2 miles walk into lovely Bishops Castle only a few mins on the A road then onto a quiet lane and then well walked field footpaths. NO CHARGE for dogs. We will definitely use again

Serious road noise

Snead Barns
I'm sorry to have to write my first negative review and wish the owners all success with their antiques business but the road noise here is dreadful. Motorbikes use the road early on a Sunday morning as well and there is no peace. It is a shame because the views from the site are lovely and the area is really nice. Also the pitches which are effectively on a car park are very small, 7 metres wide at most and really best suited for motorhomes. We were the only ones on the site at the time but other caravans would have been uncomfortably close otherwise

A Great Find

Snead Barns
Arrived at this site and was welcomed by John & Sally. Sally was very keen to show us where everything was and was available without being intrusive. This is a new CL site and I would definitely recommend. The toilet & shower are spotlessly clean. An earlier review mentioned that you only had 3 minutes for £1.00 so I went prepared, but honestly the water was running for a good five minutes with plenty of hot water which was easily controlled, you also had a chair available to place items on and 2 big hooks on the back of the door. This site isn't really suitable for young children as the pitches and surrounding area is made up of big stone chippings, ideal in wet weather. Difficult ground if you plan to erect an awning, but not impossible just come prepared with very strong metal pegs and a heavy mallet/hammer. There are beautiful views from the pitches and the field immediately in front of the pitch is frequented by cattle and sheep, also several Red Kites were flying frequently over the site. There is road noise, but as with everything else you get used to it; it certainly didn't disturb our sleep. There is a recycling system in place which is good in this day and age. There are plenty of places of interest to visit from here such as:- The lovely Powys Castle & its gardens. The Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway. Farmers town of Bishops Castle where you will find a local brewery of Real Ales at The Three Tuns Inn & on a Saturday a flea market is held indoors. The small farmers towns of Newtown & Welshpool are nearby too. Shrewsbury is approx an hr away. I certainly would recommend this CL site and would visit again without hesitation. I wish Sally & John all the best with this new venture of theirs.

A gem of a site.

Snead Barns
A gem of a site. A really wonderful site in a beautiful place. John and Sally are so welcoming and are there to make sure you enjoy the beauty of their site. They were at hand with any help you needed, but were never intrusive, perfect hosts. The views from the pitches is truly stunning. A very clean toilet and shower was available. Good area for walking and biking. Loved our stay here from start to finish.

Great spot for expolring

Snead Barns
We stayed last weekend and found it great a spot to explore Bishops Castle and the Long Mynd on Mountain Bikes. The Borders is a really nice area to explore, so much to do and see, the views off the top of the Long Mynd are stunning. There's a glider club on top, so well worth a chill out to watch them flying. We had the CL to ourselves, nobody else booked on. Great shower (£1 for 3 mins) and clean toilets. Will be back to explore the area again for sure. Super friendly owners.
