We have just come back from Oxon Hall Caravan Park having spent, four nights at the location. The park is ideally located if you want to travel into the beautiful town of Shrewsbury and £2-50 return at the park and ride just outside the site for 4 adults and 2 children return is an absolute bargain.

The park is easy to locate and secured with barriers, the toilet and shower facilities are top drawer, always warm and available although the shower curtain does stick to your skin when you are showering but no great hardship.

The site is quiet although there is slight road noise from the nearby A5, the pitches are spacious and easily accommodated my caravan, full awning and car, TV reception was good as was the EHU, the clean water, grey waste and Elsen facilities are all very handy and well laid out in well-lit areas.

There is a small shop on site that is well stocked of caravan / camping equipment should the need arise, a Co-op is situated near to the park and ride along with a chip shop and Chinese Take away, we didnít use either of the takeaways but the Co-op was very helpful being so close.

I was impressed with the security of the park and the manner in which the grounds were kept, the hedges are neatly trimmed and the whole site looks lovely.

I paid £128-00 for four nights for a standard pitch with EHU, my parents came to stay for an extra night which involved me shelling out another £12-80 and I have to say that although clean there are no other facilities that I might have expected paying such an inflated price, there is a small childrenís play area, no bar and no other amenities which would account for such an exaggerated price.

I have stayed in much better equipped sites with equal if not better showering facilities and not paid anywhere near as much.

Overall I would say that Oxon Hall is a nice site, well positioned and well looked after, we enjoyed our stay although I suggest that the pricing scheme is very expensive for what you get, yes it is near to the park and ride but that cannot account for the high price alone.

Would I recommend, probably yes but patrons need to be aware of the excessive price, I hasten to add that the price was in the low season, if I had dared to go in high season the cost would have been much higher.

A fantastic site. The site is very clean and very well maintained. The toilet/shower facilities are very clean and are cleaned every day. There is co-op at the end of the road along with a chippy and Chinese. The pitch we had was very nice, we weren't cramped in and had a large space in front of us for the kids to play in. The staff were friendly, but the shop only really stocked caravan/camping equipment and very little food (maybe due to the co-op and the end of the road). The playground, in my opinion, is a bit of a let down, it only had 4 swings and one slide. However, the site is brilliant and the best one we have been to and we will be going again, looking to go in September. All other sites will now be compared to this one, who have set the standards high.

Just enjoyed week-end visit to this site. The site is very well looked after, very clean and maintained, good size pitch. There are shops at the entrance to site chippy, Chinese takeaway co-op and a vets two pubs 5 mins away. The Grapes, and the Oxen Priory a further 10 mins along the same road which sells a lot cheaper ale. We camped in a adult only area.

Shrewsbury well worth a visit.

Really nice site. Hard to find any fault at all.

Very well kept and maintained site. Staff were very friendly and very helpful. Facilities are pretty spotless and clean. The pitches were spacious and well kept.

The site is well situated to visit Shrewsbury. The park and ride is next door and was a bargain at £2. 50 for 2 adults return. Even though don't run on sundays you can cross the main road and walk between the houses and you'll find the number 1 bus stop. It was a little more expensive £2 per adult each way. Not the worse deal though.

The grapes inn was about 50 yards down the main road. Really nice pub that serves 2 for £10. So again another very good deal. There's even a large co-op within spitting distance just in case you need to re-stock.

Shrewsbury was a pleasant surprise too. Very pretty in places. Was lovely to walk around the park and admire some of the older buildings.

Sure the showers were a little on the snug side and there were only 2 sinks in the dishwashing area but these are only very minor points and certainly not deal breakers.

Approach

Very well sign posted from the A5 and the road the site is on, very easy access.

Staff on arrival

Exceptionally welcoming, greeted me by name, which was very impressive! Fully explained everything.

Pitch

We had an adult hard standing pitch, it wasn't the largest pitch we've had but it was ok. It had a slight slope so we needed levelling blocks, several of the vans had some sort of levelling in place. The electric hook up was quite a way away on this pitch, so the long cable was needed. Water etc was all close by.

Facilities

Excellent, extremely clean, I agree with previous reviews the shower curtain is a bit of a pain - there is a laundry, and a well well stocked shop. The site is Safe with a barrier. The site is very quiet.

Local area

There are several pubs close by but we didn't use them, we did however use the chip shop, which was very nice. There is a Chinese take away as well and a Co-op, all of these are at the end of the long drive which leads up to the site, which is very convenient. As is the park and ride which takes you in to shrewsbury, which if you have never been to you really have to visit this beautiful market town.

Summary

The site is up to the usual high standard of the other Morris leisure sites we have stayed at, nice wardens, good facilities, quiet, spacious, modern site.

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!

Caravan club membership gives a small discount and you are awarded a free night after staying 12 nights on Morris Leisure sites.

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.

We'll be back here next year.
