Why stay here ...
Meadow Cottage is located half a mile off the main road down a quiet country lane surrounded by farmland. The level site affords outstanding views of the Welsh Borders countryside and nestles under the famous Rodney’s Pillar on Breidden Hill. A walk to the top is a must to experience the spectacular 360º views taking in the Shropshire Plain to mid Wales and Snowdon.
A 10 minute walk takes you to Offa’s Dyke, the Severn Way or canoe access to the river Severn. Just 5 minutes’ drive away is canoe access to the Montgomeryshire canal and the river Severn. Cycle from the site along the scenic, elevated towpath into historic Welshpool with its museums, steam railway, canal trips, canoe hire, restaurants, nature reserves, leisure centre, Powys castle and Glyndwr’s way. From Welshpool station, take the train to the coast for a different day out. Just a short hop away are the lovely old towns of Oswestry or Shrewsbury with their black and white buildings, interesting shops and markets.
Visit a local vineyard or enjoy a day at an outdoor activity centre (including quad biking, archery and clay shooting). Within easy cycling distance of Meadow Cottage you will find a choice of country pubs serving good, locally sourced food at very reasonable prices and full of very friendly locals. Cycles are available if needed.
Historic sites abound in this area and walkers will be spoilt for choice – hills and mountains, forests and moorland…. Birdwatchers will enjoy many local nature reserves, including a fine view of Buzzards and Barn Swallows playing round the barn. Cycling possibilities vary from easy, level routes to tough, for would be Kings of the Mountain.
At the site, borrow games or books, or relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of your surroundings. There is water available at each pitch and one all weather pitch, also washing machine available (£4). Free range eggs, some seasonal produce and a selection of hand crafted items available for purchase.
Fishing in the River Severn is available just under 10 minutes walk from the site. To do this, membership of the Birmingham Angler's Association is required for which you can pay by card over the phone. Please contact them on 01562 882116 or 07976 886558 to arrange a fishing permit which must be in advance of your stay.
Dogs are welcome (on a lead please).
A warm welcome awaits you and I recommend staying a few nights to fully experience what the area has to offer. Book in before 7 pm please, or let me know if you will be later. I look forward to meeting you soon!

Greeted on arrival by the owner who took time to explain where everything was, she was very helpful and thoughtful throughout our stay. The site is in a lovely quiet spot with large well spaced out pitches. Easily accessible nice walks from the site. An ideal retreat for a little R and R. We would definitely return.
