What a fab site just what we wanted. Peaceful and basic but great location. Owner was friendly. Only thing that spoilt it was another couple letting their dog roam free and it attacking me on our return to the site after a day out. Will definitely stay again

Brilliant weekend at Astbury Falls, great location for Bridgenorth and surrounding area. The owner is friendly, answers any questions you have of the area. Site is very peaceful with a few units, a unique shower, very spacious. Severn Valley railway is 5 minute drive away. Definitely recommend this site.

DON'T TELL ANYONE ELSE !

What a find! A simple, secluded site, with superb fishing !

Unpretentious - you get what it says on the tin ! - SO - please do not compare this site with a Caravan Club or a Camping & Caravan Club site - if that is what you are looking for - then go to one of those. Personally, I hope the very genial owner, David, doesn't get tempted to turn this into such a site, and lose its rustic charm.

But be warned - seclusion comes with a risk - the nearby busy B road has no footpath or walkway so is hazardous for you keep-fitters - instead, bring along your OS map and tread the footpaths and ramblers' rights of way that are getting neglected and overgrown and re-routed by landowners.

Along that same B road, stopping by the turn down to the campsite, runs an hourly bus service into Bridgnorth, conveniently depositing you by Sainsbury.

The entire campsite is surrounded by trees, so - no light pollution - giving star gazers a beautiful tranquil setting to enjoy the night sky.

And so to the fishing - a choice of 4 swims along one side of a stream fed pool. No one has explained the rules to the fish - so expect anything - from gudgeon that will take on a size 6 hook and cat food chunks bigger than its head, quality roach that prefer meat to corn, and lightning fast carp strikes that snap 7lb line like cotton. These fish must be on Steroids! Absolutely immaculate condition - wonderful fun fishing - once you have worked out how to stop the tiddlers from corporately dissasembling your bait!

And lastly (and oh boy, can he last!) looking at other reviewers' criticisms -

No sink in the toilet. Just like millions of homes in the UK with separate toilets.

No hot water for washing up. Remember to put the kettle on to boil whilst you are eating !

Lumpy grass - cuttings left in situ - remember to wipe your feet before going into your van - if you are using a tent, check where you are going to pitch, and whack the lumps down with a mallet before putting the groundsheet in place.

A lovely peaceful place to stay - a great place to stay -

Thoroughly recommended - but - Please don't tell all your friends !

This is a very basic site and thought it was over priced. There were not marked pitches and the ground was uneven. The grass had been cut and left so it was trod into the vans which was really annoying. To be honest I expect more for 20 per night.

I actually quite liked the quirkiness of the toilet and shower shed combination although wasn't impressed about the lack of sink for washing my hands afterwards. Being given anti bacterial gel did not inspire me. Must say though the toilet was kept clean with decent amount of toilet tissue. There was an area for washing up but it only had cold water and it looked like a reclamation yard. We took our washing up home.

The site is about 2 miles away from Bridgnorth but some of the road has no path and was precarious at times. There is a nice pub halfway though which had a lovely pub garden where we enjoyed a cold beer to help us on our way.

If time and effort were put into this site, it could be a little gem. Unfortunately it would take a lot of time and effort, we won't be coming back. It felt more like waste ground not a camp site. I feel quite bad about writing this because the owner was quite a nice guy but thought other people should know what the place is really like.

We stayed for 2 nights and found this site to be very tranquil. With it being a small site, the facilities are a little rustic but this wasn't an issue in the slightest. The owners were very friendly and had lots of local knowledge, which lead us to a couple of great days out.

There was lots going on in Bridgnorth and it's such a nice town to have a stroll around, with the market and the wonky castle!

Thanks for a nice weekend, we'll hopefully call in again sometime!

Just returned from a lovely 2 day stay at this beautiful campsite. A very clean, dog friendly, secure, picturesque, well maintained & peaceful site. It was like being in our own little nature reserve, which was wonderful for two keen nature lovers/photographers :o). Huge array of wildlife all around you, the established fishing pools have either course or trout fishing available if you're into that sort of thing (watching the trout jump right out for the flies was a lovely sight). Chilling to the sound of the nearby waterfall & owls hooting sent you off into a nice slumber. Will defo be returning again.
