Reviewer: Fremsley 4 reviews from this member

After ringing around many dozens of campsites across west central England on Bank Holiday weekend-eve, we finally found a space, mainly as we neither wanted an electric hook-up or bought a dog. For those who did, the site was full. We though, were away from the crowds and fully appreciated it. Also allowed fire-pits, which was a blessing when the skies cleared and the temperature plummeted.

Perfectly adequate sized plots, but no division apart from lined ground. Big site, so lots of people- the most tents I've seen outside of a festival or a scout jamboree. Means that there'll be a few selfish so-and-sos amongst them, but everyone we spoke to was lovely.

Site itself is fine. Staff very helpful and well drilled. Loo trip to permanent block at 0730 found all sparkling and hot showers; my son's trip at 1130 had cold water, but understandable. Facilities a little tired, pool needed some tlc. Temporary loos, at least the gents, too smelly for me.

Wem is a mile away, three curry houses and Chinese restaurants, Co-op supermarket. But the sort of place that charges 20 p for the public loo. Shropshire is lovely in the areas around. Went on the close-by Follies walk and climbed the Monument for a breath-taking, if vertigo-inducing, 360 deg view- expensive though, for what is a basically a walk through a bunch of rhododendron, but the sun shone and even the teenagers were happy.

Overall, perfectly fine, really enjoyed our three days, would have stayed longer and saw more of the surrounding area; would go back if needed too. Quiet after 2300 on all three nights.

Fabulous place and lots to do even if weather is typically English,

We had rain, sunshine even a bit of thunder but still had great time with 2 youngsters, 4 & 9 year olds.

Crazy golf even in drizzly rain, take away lunch and play area, then sun came out and the kids went swimming in the outdoor heated pool, then walked around at the pigs, goats, alpacas etc, then later on we

Went to the clubhouse for families which had entertainment singer, bar, and kid friendly staff and their own bar hahaha x plus game machines for kids.

There is an adult only bar as well but we didn't go there but it's for over 18, s.

The pitch was great size and ample room for M/home and Awning.

Will definitely go back.

Just visited this campsite, its a large site stayed 3 nights its a bit on the expensive side, staff welcoming and security good. Crazy golf has had a poor job done on it not a good surface laid. The toilet cubicles have cobwebs in the windows and vents as mentioned in July 2015 review, swimming pool small but ok. Definitely need some good rock pegs. No entertainment in Jacks barn during mid week. Been to better sites. Wem village 5 mins up the road.

Very nice friendly place. Staff in the cafe were great as we're the grounds staff.

Toilets are clean and warm.

You will need hard ground pegs, no matter what you think.

The only downside was the dawn chorus.

Will be back soon.

Stayed here over the bank holiday and loved our stay! Our two children (5&7) absolutely loved it here and made full use of the playground and swimming pool! Only downside to the site and particularly the pool was the wasp infestation. This is however what you expect in the countryside but maybe management could do more to tackle the problem.

The staff are what make this site so special! From the lady who runs the swimming pool and organises children's entertainment to the reception staff. Positive friendly and helpful! A special mention to a young man who works in the kitchen 'Ben' who never seemed to be out of work all weekend! He was there when we got breakfast in the morning and was still there when we left the club of a night. His confident flamboyant nature didn't falter the entire time and became quiet a hit with the kids. Little things like bringing food out to feed the pigs with the children really make a difference and I feel his attitude sums up everything this site is about!

Massive thumbs up! Will he returning!

Our first time here and I think I agree with some of the previous reviews I have read. The site is a little dated, which is a shame as it has the making of being a gem really, shame about some of the ground its full of rocks, stones etc we really struggled on pitch 29, use really decent rock pegs!

You are allocated set pitches when you book, which means being quite close to people especially on the electric hook up field, also you have to pitch tent a certain way, apparently the owner keeps it this way because of the council, it feels a tad regimental though. Toilets and shower clean enough, no charge for showers. There is however a 10p charge for hot water to wash up.

The outdoor heated swimming pool is a hit, although all 4 children with me, got cuts and grazes on the rough sides of the pool, below the water level.

The children's marquee outside the Windmill bar as advertised on the website is nothing more than a glorified gazebo, open to the elements and next to the road (5mph speed limit ).

Jakks barn is ok, but there's only really entertainment at weekends, alright for a few drinks and change of scenery.

The indoor amusements consisted of a few machines in jakks barn, lots of small toy machines, 20p and 1 coins are a must if you have children haha

There is an on site cafe, or you can get local take away menus from reception and they deliver to site. There is a shop which is well stocked with essentials on site, you can also hire freezer blocks for 1. 50, you get a 1 back when you return freezer blocks back.

There are various animals around the park, which is nice and 2 fab play areas, also crazy golf, which is again in need of a little tlc

Wem is a very short drive away, has various take aways, hardware shop, a decent sized co-op, and various other small shops. Its only a small village

We had a good time apart from inconsiderate campers, camping behind us on our last night, loud till 1am, then loud again at 6 am.

We found this site to be ok, but would not revisit.
