We have just spent a long weekend at Poolview campsite and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt as though we were visiting old friends. We found Andy the warden very friendly and extremely hard working and knowledgeable.

The camp was very quiet and peaceful. It was nice to see the squirrels and pheasants running around carefree. Andy told us that they have deer that visit the site but we did not manage to see them. We live in a town so it was nice to hear and see lots of birds and to know that the residents on the site look after them.

The shower blocks were a bit old fashioned but the water was always hot and the units were kept clean and tidy. There was also washing machines available to use. Andy explained that the shower/toilet blocks are going to be updated with work due to start in September. The plans seem really good especially as they plan to have toilets and showers specifically designed for disabled campers.

We wished we could have stayed longer but we had other commitments to fulfil. We will definitely return when we get chance.

Thanks Andy you went above and beyond to make sure we had a pleasant stay. We look forward to seeing you again sometime in the future.

Very close to Ironbridge lovely site. Don't worry about other reviews that moan about the power cables, no problems not intrusive at all. The showers could have been cleaner but very hot & powerful. Recommend

Just spent a week at Pool View, a lovely site. A walk of 3/4 of a mile down then a few steps to a spot where you hail the bus. One side for Ironbridge Gorge and Telford the other for Shrewsbury, . They run every Two hours and not on Sunday's.

The washrooms are to be replaced next year the current one will 'do'

The Site Warden Andy is great, so helpful nothing too much trouble, what a star.

Will we go back, yes.

Friendly wardens and well kept drive.

The pylons are a bit spooky as they buzz all the time.

1 shower block - ladies had 3 showers I think (maybe 4).

Filthy.

Drains are blocked so you are in a few inches of goodness knows what after a couple of mins.

Dirty and mouldy.

Sinks were dirty - and it wasn't just from that day - it was old dirt - looks like nobody cleans regularly.

Big sink for washing up is in the shower/toilet block! That was dirty too.

We had to have a shower there on our first day but friends whom we were visiting let us use their shower the next day - we just couldn't face it.

There is only one way to describe our experience at Poolview - totally surreal! Firstly, the sat nav takes you up a track to a farm yard on the wrong side of the hill. The farmer tells us this happens at least a couple of times a week. How have the owners not yet sorted this out?

Secondly, the power lines. We were shown to a pitch at the top of the site (next to loo disposal, LUSH). The pitch was slap bang between two huge pylons, the power lines were buzzing away above us. And then we had a powercut! You couldn't make it up. So we're sat there and we can't put a film on because there's no working EHU, we can only sit in the dark and listen to the hum of the power all around us. Hilarious.

I picked this place because it has a pool on site (hence the name), and I like getting in pools. We didn't even get to the pool, it should be renamed Pylonview.

Handy for Ironbridge. Bit of a trek back up the hill from toilet and shower block, but toilets were free and hot. Washing up areas are inside the ladies/ gents so you can't go and do the dishes together :(. 18 for EHU, plus dog.

We were looking for a campsite in this area because we were attending a family reunion. After looking at several in the area we chose Pool View. Our decision was based on Cost, Location and Facilities. The cost was the cheapest in the area, the location was just about perfect and the facilities would do. (We are not 'fair weather campers'), and Glamping isn't in my vocabulary. The Warden and his wife were extremely helpful with any of our technical hiccups; lack of tent pegs being the main one! The views around were brilliant, ok I agree the power station is a bit of an eyesore but, if you look at it from a photographic view, it isn't there. There is abundant wildlife ranging from Canadian Geese to Red Deer.

The toilet block was perfectly adequate, with enough of everything.

The only downside of this site is that if it rains heavily for a couple of days, there is a possibility of floating away - tent and all! Other than that it's a great site.

We shall be returning and also we told everyone at the reunion of it.
