Thanks to the other reviewers on here we tried this little gem. Not easy to find as stated previously but Fran whom we were met by is a friendly face when you are tired and just want to get dinner on and parked for the night. Fran is rightly proud of their field which is beautiful and private with stunning views to Rodney's Pillar and the Briedden Hills. There is a delightful pond which has geese and ducks nesting in the middle at present.

This is a very basic site. A port-a-loo which is kind of plumbed in, a dustbin and a tap for water. No hook ups.

We had a memorable and peaceful moonlit night under the stars which were reflected in the pond and we would without doubt absolutely love to stay again.

Totally agree the the above. A magical setting. Wanted to take three kids (Age10, 10, 08) somewhere. Away from playstations and Ipads. This Meadow location fitted the bill perfectly. The pitch cut out of long grass & thousands on buttercups in full bloom. Having permission to explore the surrounding fields the kids absolutely loved the place. Lack of facilities wasn't a problem with pubs and shops a short drie away. Eventually there did come a point when we all needed a shower so we improvised. Filling a plastic bag with tap water, punching few holes in the bottom. Hey presto.

Bottom line - it was one of those holidays that will live long on all our memories thamks

A beautiful site that we have visited many times:) The owners are genuinely friendly, welcoming, and helpful, and enjoy being able to share their lovely meadow site with others. The site is managed with a view to sustaining and increasing the bio diversity, and is a real haven for wildlife, with owls, hawks, ducks, butterfly's, newts, wildflowers, ect. The site is largely a natural meadow with the outer edge mowed for pitching. There is mature hedging with trees all round the field, and a large pond. With great views of the Briedden hills. A quiet site at night where you can enjoy a real campfire under starry sky's. The local area is a true slice of rural England, with excellent walks locally for the countryside/nature lovers. And there are good shops/pubs a short drive away. Facility's are basic but are more than adequate, (real toilet in portaloo, sink, tap, and bin). Access to the site by car or motorhome is good, and being hedged and gated, the site is both private and secure. Firewood is provided by the owners who also produce their own excellent local honey. Totally agree with other reviews, this is a gem of a site. With friendly and helpful owners, a real snapshot of camping as it used to be. Love it there, and will be revisiting again very soon:)

For those looking for the 'Farmers Field' experience of their childhood this is the place. A stunning, flower filled meadow next to a pond and down a windy farm lane.

Owls the only noise in the night, once the open fire has died down. Logs supplied by the farmer, as are the eggs, of a morning!

Just like when you were young! -That also goes for the facilities, the toilet is a hole and drain affair and the tap is just that. This is a field!

The farmer and family where very welcoming and my single night, just passing through, turned into a long weekend.

A must for the wild camper, just be prepared to hunt for it, or put the coordinates in your GPS, there are no signs until you're at the gate!

Set in absolutely glorious countryside.

This place is THE best in natural, wild camping if Shropshire is your destination. No mod cons, but as a result you can experience all the beauty of the natural countryside. Wood provided to stoke your fire in a brazier and (if you're really lucky) an invite to join the Bebbs for one of their legendary bar-b-qs. Fabulous local pubs, The Tontine, The Royal Hill (a peaceful pint on the river) and The Navigation, you're spoiled for a good pint and grub if that's your thing. Otherwise, boil your kettle on the fire, sit back and enjoy the views. Truly spectacular.

The most beautiful natural meadow I have ever seen. We pitched our tents in one corner and had the most perfect view across the field, over the pond and into the next as we opened our tent zip in the morning.

This is a proper back-to-nature pitch, with fresh water on tap but no toilet facilities. We had no problem with this however as it's the perfect antidote to city living. Fran and Brian, the farm owners, couldn't have been more hospitable, offering the use of their toilet, bathroom and washing machine, delivering freshly baked scones on arrival and fresh farm eggs whenever we needed them.

I wouldn't hesitate in going back to find this gem of a field as the hosts were so friendly and helpful, and the surrounding area is stunning. The nearest pubs are a mere 15 minute cycle away, where you can get delicious pub grub and a pint or two, with a view of the river too!

We had fires every evening in the large brassier on site, using firewood supplied by the farm.

I can't wait to go back and get some more of their delicious eggs and honey!
