Arrived early evening mid December to a courteous and efficient welcome.
What a lovely surprise to see so many Christmas decorations around and inside the reception area, draped over the hedges and fences and in the windows of the wardens mobile home. Made you feel really good.
Walked to the Park and Ride where a return ticket to Shrewsbury is £2-50 return for a group of up to 5 people. Bargain!

We've been to this site to do our Christmas shopping 6 years running - great site to visit a great town. Lots of independent shops. It's what makes town centres interesting.
Just back from a two night stay at this lovely site, had a really lovely warm welcome from the young lady in the reception on arrival, the site facilities are excellent (shower curtain does cling though)real warm toilet/shower block with plenty of hot water, good free showers, pitch was a good size, really found it handy having a water tap on the pitch but wasn't able to use the waste water drain as van waste water pipe was on the wrong side and I would have needed about 8ft of waste pipe to be able to use it.
It was just a shame that when I went into the reception during my stay and also when I went in on leaving to hand back the keys that the same lovely young lady wasn't behind the reception as the two people that were behind there certainly didn't come across very friendly at all and I felt it was an effort for them to speak to me, no conversation at all, not even hope you enjoyed your stay or safe journey home. Sorry Oxon Hall these two people really let you down.
We used the park and ride and had a nice day out, also walked to the local pub which sold a good choice of beers and the menu looked good to.
A really nice tidy site with plenty of room between each unit. Great if you forget anything as there's a co-op right outside which is very reasonable priced. We took the park & ride into town (£2. 50 return for 2) so no need to use the car at all over the weekend! Everything was immaculate and the only point of note was the mildew in the showers, otherwise they were immaculate, have the warden's not heard of flash-spray? Showers great as not push button, really forceful and plenty of hot water, oh but the shower curtains are pain when they stick to your wet body! If we want to visit Shrewsbury again we will definitely stay here!
The toilet facilities are more than adequate, clean, fantastic showers (possibly one of the best showers). Yes they may be a little dated, but no site can upgrade every few years. The pitches are adequate, we went off peak, so there was plenty of room (despite plenty of room the wardens allowed a tent to be pitched right next to our van, a little inconsiderate we felt, as this chap was quite noisy, it was only for one night in the end, so we did not speak to the wardens). Not enough recycling facilities, and the water point for filling is awkward.
The large Coop is in easy walking distance, as is the cheap public transport with a regular bus service into Shrewsbury.
The ducks are wonderful, entertaining and very friendly.
If you venture into Shrewsbury for a meal, we cannot recommend highly enough 'Cafe Saffron'. Four of us went there and had what could only be described as one of the best meals we've ever had. Great food, great service, great prices! we are returning to the area next year, just so that we can eat her a couple of times.
We note the comments about the staff in previous reviews. Our experience of the staff started when we entered the reception on arrival, two members were sideways onto us sat down, they looked up, looked back down and carried on writing. No greeting. Moments later the lady said 'someone will be with you in a minute' and carried on writing. Set the tone for our expectations of the staff from that point on. The lady who did serve us however was lovely.
Recently spent a week at Oxon Hall and really enjoyed staying there, had a fully serviced pitch which was excellent plenty of room for the motorhome, trailer and smart car.
The grounds were immaculate and really well laid out giving plenty of room and privacy, plenty of wildlife to observe as the site has ducks on the pond and rabbits everywhere! toilet / showers were spotless and always warm and clean a credit to the wardens.
Small on site shop was expensive but stocked all the necessities but there is a co-op just up the road which although haphazard with ignorant staff does have most of your daily needs (although there seemed to be an egg shortage in Shrewsbury when we stayed ??)there is also a Cantonese Takeaway at the entrance to the site which we tried and is brilliant!
So if you need a good site with access to Shrewsbury and all the attractions such as The Iron Bridge Gorge with all its museums as well as easy access to North Wales Oxon Hall is the site to use - First Class !
