We originally booked a 3 for 2 night offer for mid-December but they rang to say they were snowed in and asked if I wanted them to hold my deposit.

I managed to rearrange lots of family commitments to stay on site a week later than planned and was disappointed to find they wouldn't honour the 3 for 2 offer, as it had expired the day before.

On top of that they charged me more as it was now classed as Peak Period. (only 10 'vans on site though).

The approach road was still being cleared of ice as we arrived and it looks as though they'd pulled out all the stops to get the site open again.

We were pleasantly surprised how effective the revamp to the toilet and shower blocks have been; really pristine and lovely and warm.

The Christmas lights and decorations were amazing and would put several town centres to shame. Sadly, we missed the Christmas Tree festival in St. Chads, as that had finished the day before we arrived too. Snow in December, who would have thought it!

Unfortunately the riverside path was closed off due to ice, so we couldn't cycle as far as we hoped, but did manage a 15 mile loop to Montford Bridge, Mytton, Fitz, Leatton and the town centre.

We used the Park and Ride twice and it's excellent value at 2. 50 return for a couple and so convenient for the shops.

All in all, a nice break even if 'management' weren't in the Christmas spirit.

Lovely relaxed site. Lots of water points, level gravel pitches, 16amp power, really big shop selling everything and more. Toilets and shower block warm, clean and modern, lots of hot water, NO press button! Staff very friendly and helpful. Will return.

I endorse all the previous reviews. It is really in a great location for getting into town, what a lovely town with so much to see and do all easily reached on foot. Note Park and Ride doesn't run on Sundays neither does alternative bus service #1 (through the alleyway). However we took our motorhome in straight into town to the Frankwell car park. Very large, paid 1 for 10 hours.

Just got home from 6 days at Oxon Hall. We chose this site because it is only an hour from home and we had a new to us caravan to try for the first time. If it was possible to give this place 12 out of 10 then I would. I cannot think of one thing I could find fault with. The site itself is kept immaculate, the showers and toilets are better than you find in a lot of hotels. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. We originally booked for 4 nights but stayed an extra 2 days because we loved the place. The on-site shop is well stocked with most things a caravanner might need. They even had the part I needed to repair a leak on our hot water system.

The icing on the cake for us was that a 5 or 6 min stroll took you to the Oxon Hall Park and Ride. No need to use your car to go to Shrewsbury. And cheaper than parking if two of you travel. Another couple of minutes walk takes you to an excellent chippie and a Chinese take-away. Both are next to a well stocked Co-op and a good Pharmacy. There is also a ladies hairdresser and vetinary service on the same precinct.

About 10 mins walk away is a Toby Carvery. Not my cup of tea. But very popular.

We had a hard standing pitch in the adults only section. Plenty of room for the van, awning and car.

An added bonus for us was that the site is over-run with rabbits, blackbirds and lots of other bird species. Plus regular aerobatic displays by a few Buzzards.

All in all. We cant wait to go back

Booked in here for our first trip away in the caravan and was left feeling slightly underwhelmed.

Nice enough site but despite saying we had a 7 year old we were given a pitch on the corner of 4 roadways, hardly the relaxing point we expected tbh.

Our pitch was right behind the adults only section and poor son was told to keep his noise down by 'an angry man'. There were very nearly 2 angry men!

Toilets were clean, site was clean, playground was a little basic and more geared for toddlers than older children.

So in short a nice enough site but I would say more for adults than families with young children.

What a fantastic site and beautiful area.

We recently stayed at Oxon Hall for 2 nights. Having pre-booked a hardstanding pitch in the adults only section we arrived on site to a very friendly and informative welcome. We were booked in very quickly and allocated a pitch, which was large and overlooked the Dell (full of bouncing bunnies most of the time!). The site is immaculate, both grounds and facilities. The central facilities are accessed via a key given to you on arrival and were always spotless. Lovely powerful showers and lots of privacy cubicles. There's a good shop with food essentials and camping gear, and indoor washing up room, a really good information room and a lovely pond with a few tables overlooking it where we sat one afternoon watching a squirrel bury his food!

Just a short walk from the site is a Co-op, fish & chip shop and a lovely Chinese takeaway (that was recommended by the wardens and was really good). Further afield there's a Toby Carvery (we didn't try this) and a Hungry Horse (which we did try and weren't particularly impressed with). The park & ride service into Shrewsbury is excellent and is situated near the Co-op. It runs very regularly from 7:30am but the last bus is early evening (6:45pm'ish if I remember correctly?). It was only 2. 50 for the two of us return - bargain I'd say!

It was our first ever visit to Shrewsbury and what a beautiful place it is. Lots to see and do. We did a boat trip (Sabrina Boat - 8 each) to get our bearings and decide where else to wander to and it was brilliant. After the trip we walked along the river, over many of the bridges and through the parks, the castle and the stunning railway buildings, having lunch in town before our return bus.

We would highly recommend both the campsite and the town and cannot wait to re-visit again soon.
