Our Inspector's view

Situated in the Shropshire Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with many excellent walks starting directly from the site, Old School Campsite is ideally located for exploring both mid-Wales and historic Shrewsbury. Although a small site of just 1.5 acres, it is well equipped. It is a really beautiful park, often described as ‘a gem’, with excellent facilities and offering all the requirements for a relaxing countryside holiday. The superb high hedges surrounding the touring and camping areas create very good privacy. In addition to well maintained pitches, five bell tents are located in an enclosed high-hedged area with a fire pit – cooking equipment and utensils are provided. The friendly owners also run active and creative classes for individuals or groups of all ages, with children especially welcomed. A shop features local produce and a stone-baked pizza service is provided on Saturday nights.

About the area

Discover Shropshire

Perhaps nowhere else in England will you find a county so deeply rural and with so much variety as Shropshire. Choose a clear day, climb to the top of The Wrekin, and look down on that ‘land of lost content’ so wistfully evoked by A E Housman. Peer through your binoculars and trace the course of Britain’s longest river as the Severn sweeps through the county, from the Breidden Hills to Wyre Forest, slicing Shropshire in two. To the north is a patchwork of dairy fields, hedgerows, copses and crops, broken at intervals by rugged sandstone ridges such as Grinshill or Nesscliffe, and dissected by a complex network of canals.

Spilling over the border into neighbouring Cheshire and North Wales is the unique meres and mosses country, with serenely smooth lakes glinting silver, interspersed with russet-tinged expanses of alder-fringed peat bog, where only the cry of the curlew disturbs the silence. South of the Severn lies the Shropshire Hills AONB. It’s only when you walk Wenlock Edge that you fully discover what a magical place it is – glorious woods and unexpectedly steep slopes plunge to innumerable secret valleys, meadows, streams and farmhouses, all tucked away, invisible from the outside world.
