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.

Unbelievably kind and helpful managers!

I have found nothing but kindness and helpfulness from every CCS I've visited so far but the couple at High Onn are in a league of their own in this respect. The gentleman(in every sense of the word) who had fixed my wing mirror for me on my first visit in July, went out on his way, on his "day off" to ensure that I was prepared for the maze of roads to get me back on the A5. A brilliant couple in a beautifully maintained site. Stayed there on way back north last time and going south this time,and it is a great peaceful break after a days driving.. not easy to find with or without sat nav though.? A road sign or two would be helpful. I was assisted on the way in by a generous local who drove to it with me behind her... so locals are friendly too. Wiĺl use again..probably every time I go down south as it is ideally placed for about the time when I need a break... And you really do feel like you've had a break!

Forth time here and it never fails to hit the spot. Always come away from here relaxed and happy.

Only fault this time is local farmer must have changed his field dressing as flies were more in evidence than ever. Take plenty of spray as we were eaten alive. But will return probably in a different month.

If you want to get away from it all and still be close to the motorway network, this is a great site.

This was our second short stay at High Onn. It is quite remote but this adds to its peaceful and gentle nature. The wardens are of course, lovely and friendly and add to the feeling that this is a brilliantly run CL. Plenty of walking and cycling. This is where those tiny empty roads come into their own. Wheaton Aston is very close with several pubs, there is also Church Eaton. Both can be accessed by walking along the Shropshire union canal. If you want to get away from it all and still be close to the motorway network, this is a great site.

Quiet but clean and friendly site

Very friendly wardens who are a credit to the club system. Access to the site along the narrowish lanes from the major road needs some care with tractors and speeding white vans possibly around each frequent corner. Some parts of the access roads to/from site need some care also due to their size or obstacles in the area of the access. Much enjoyed 3/4 days at the site as it was quiet and the dog was happy there without overcrowding. Site is somewhat remote and some travel is needed to nearest village. The site itself is clean and tidy but is somewhat dated. Certain seasonal pitch occupiers seem to be taking advantage with caravan, awning and windbrakes of one pitch taking up an area of about 8 metres by 9 metres - had considered commenting to the warden. The whole setup seemed completely out of place. Would I use the site again - possibly as was quiet and clean, but not as a short stay as the acces from main roads is not good.

A peaceful site but starting to look a little tired.

A lovely little site tucked away in the countryside. Yes the lanes are in need of some attention but that is outside the control of the Club. The facilities are as described and were adequate for us. The hardstandings need some attention as there was weed growth through them. Apart from that a great stopping off point for us on our way north from Dorset.
