Why stay here ...

High Onn Club Site is set in such a peaceful spot that it will be hard to believe that you are less than 11 miles away from the motorway network. Views from this location are typical, traditional English farmland, with some fantastic scenery to be seen towards The Wrekin and Shropshire hills. This well maintained yet unspoilt site offers pure relaxation. The narrow quiet lanes around the caravan site make for excellent cycling territory and are ideal for strolls along the Shropshire Union Canal.

Holiday makers who use the High Onn Club Site as a stopover often end up returning or staying on a week or two extra to visit the many treats in the area. With such a relaxed ambience and with its history as a wartime RAF base, you'll no doubt want to return as well. There are many attractions in the vicinity, including Ironbridge, the caves, walks and views at Hawkstone Follies, Weston Park and the RAF Cosford Aerospace Museum. The Royal Oak in the nearby village of Church Eaton, serves great food and real ales. In addition to all this, extensive private dog walks will provide the perfect treat for the four-legged members of your family.

Please note: This site does not have a toilet block.

Peace and tranquility

Access to site is a little difficult although other road users seemed to be quite obliging by pulling in or reversing when confronted by a caravan. On reaching site welcomed by lovely warden who couldn’t have been more helpful. The warden also rang us whilst we were off site a few days later to advise us that our air awning had sprung a leak which was very good of him. Rather surprised at the length of the grass round the site and the state of the pitches that were covered in weeds some of which would have taken a trowel to remove. First three days were damp but after that we had six glorious days with no rain but only minimal amount of grass cutting undertaken during this period and none round our area. The areas where the trees have been removed has been left very uneven and this coupled with surrounding long grass meant that it was safest to negotiate the site by the road only. The service points were plentiful and lack of toilet block not an issue and is reflected in the Site Fees but my wife and I did not feel that the grass situation and pitches were up to the standard normally found on caravan club sites and we have over the course of 30 years visited a good few. Perhaps this is a temporary blip. The site is very peaceful and only the birds can be heard apart from the occasional aeroplane overhead.

Another great visit.

It's always a pleasure to return to High Onn. This site is a haven of peace and tranquility. Good walks on quiet roads with the canal fairly close by. Walking these roads could be difficult for prams and small children but on site as long as young ones can amuse themselves, no problem. As many have said before no toilet block but for us this is not a problem. There are several emptying and filling points spread around the site. You do need to remember to take all your grocery supplies if you don't want to drive out again, but the shop in Wheaton Aston is well stocked if needed. A great place at a great price and we look forward to visiting again soon.

Remote for a club site but fine as a rural location near canal

I had read the comments about the remoteness of this site, but having stayed here for 6 nights I fully endorse these. For a club site with 46 pitches, the approach lanes beyond Marston are too narrow for regular use by touring caravan outfits. I do not know how much the site is used - the warden suggested that it had been busy, but during our stay just after Easter, including a weekend, there were about 8 pitches occupied, plus a few unoccupied caravans, presumably seasonal. Leaving the site by car alone was easier except that the lane at the edge of High Onn village, which was the only option if going towards Church Eaton, had a surface so appalling I was surprised it could even be shown on the OS map as a road. More locally though, we appreciated the nearness of the canal, within 10 minutes walking distance, and we enjoyed our walks beyond Wheaton Aston and to Norbury Junction. On the site, having known and accepted the absence of a toilet block, we were quite happy with the service point provision, and the warden maintained it well, mowing most of the grass areas while we were there. Wildlife was plentiful.
