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 to be found while caravanning through Staffordshire. 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.

Site invaded by travellers.

High Onn Caravan Club Site
Yesterday evening (17 July 21), half a dozen travellers’ caravans arrived on the site. They drove rapidly around the site in the wrong direction and set up on a grassed area which does not have pitches. I was threatened by one of them when I asked if he was a club member. Several club members left the site later in the evening feeling unsafe. We stayed the night (surprisingly quiet) and left in the morning as we had planned. One of the traveller’s children told me that they had stayed here before. I feel let down by the club. If the site has been invaded before, why were barriers not installed? The club has a duty of care towards its members and failed in this instance. A single lady on the next pitch to ours felt she had to leave late in the evening because she felt unsafe. No support was provided to her by the wardens.

A quiet spot for a stopover

High Onn Caravan Club Site
We came to High Onn to break our return north. It provided a peaceful spot to rest (except that we then walked a few miles across fields, along the canal and back along quiet lanes). It is a lovely setting and interesting in that must have been a military camp once and there are air raid shelters in adjacent fields. The only quibble was the dog walk, not on site but across the road and despite being extensive and well-fenced, required dogs to be kept on leads.

Well overdue for some serious attention

High Onn Caravan Club Site
We stayed at High Onn a couple of weeks ago, having first visited nearly 20 years ago. The Wardens were a credit, but the site has been badly let down by the club. The trees have been allowed to grow out of control, and making parts of the site dark, damp and unwelcoming. Yes It looks like the bushes are trimmed back, but the trees need some serious professional attention. The service point by us was rotting. The taps were about to fall off. I suspect it was overdue for replacement quite a few years ago. Now it is a disgrace to the club. The Wardens can't do anything when the fabric of the service point is disintegrating. The hardstanding needs raking out, cleaning and re-laying. Most pitches were full of weeds. I believe that High Onn has been on the network since the early 1960s. It is beautifully located, and is a quiet and tranquil site. It doesn't have the facilities of larger and perhaps more popular sites, but that is exactly its appeal to members like us. I always used to say that you know the standard that you are going to get at a Club site. Well, come on Caravan and Motorhome Club, pull your finger out and get the site back up to standard, and then make sure you keep it there. After ~60 years service can High Onn please received the attention it so richly deserves.

Peaceful retreat

High Onn Caravan Club Site
We enoyed our stay at High Onn very peaceful with some good dog walks. The site was very clean and well maintained with easy access to empty our motorhome at the service point. Eddie and Judy are exceptional staff so friendly and very helpful. The roads once you leave the A5 are narrow single lane roads with passing points but were more then manageable in our 30' RV. Yes we would return for another holiday.
