Excellent site, fantastic views especially in the morning, the stars on a clear night are amazing and the facilities are very clean plus it's great value for money.

Visited in a large group, we could easily pitch the tents together and have a focal point around a fire.

Loads of space for the kids to run around playing cricket and football.

This is my second visit and the only negative is the total inflexibility of the lady who runs the site who has caused problems on both occasions when trying to sign in.

Otherwise a great site.

Always an excellent place to stay! Myself and several friends camped together for the Bishop's Castle Ale Trail.


Recycling - everything has to be sorted into the correct areas

Wildlife protection - there are areas set aside for the huge variety of birds and animals.

Eco - various eco initiatives such as solar panels make the impact of visitors less than other camp sites.

Views - beautiful hills, misty mornings (if you're awake early enough), lovely sunsets.

Cons: if you have mobility issues it is a walk to Bishop's Castle through woods and a field.

During the ale weekend you can't have a fire - assuming this is for safety so it doesn't bother me. Also, it's usually been warm enough not to want one.

Everyone we met was friendly, polite and seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Overall, a fabulous weekend as usual!

May half-term return visit to Foxholes near Bishop's Castle - lovely site with a green eco tinge - lots of recycling and solar generated hot water. Seen on this visit that new large fan heaters have been installed in the toilet / shower blocks - so must be warm in the colder months. Toilets and showers very clean. If you hire a fire drum and get some logs there, remember to bring some kindling and kiln-dried logs with you as the wood they sell doesn't burn that well because it is either just seasoned or unseasoned softwood.

Great site, very large, would suit families and groups of all ages. The top field has almost 360 degree views and is silent and dark at night and would be fab for stargazing. Good facilities for such a reasonable price, eco friendly and fun watching the chickens. Bishop's Castle is an ancient town, interesting but quite steep with narrow streets so a little tricky to approach through the town unless your vehicle is small.

My second time visiting this lovely place. Choice of at least three fields to camp in, with the best sunset in the top field (turn left round the house when you get there). From here there are panoramic views of the long mynd too. However we spent the first couple of nights in the lower field and enjoyed it as hardly anybody was in that one.

Facilities are good - space in showers to hang things, plenty of loos. I didn't find a plug for my hairdryer but who needs that when camping anyway.

The 'common room' with plenty of space to freeze ice packs and dry towels is very welcoming if you need to escape the weather at any point.

Bishops Castle is a lovely little village. 10 mins walk (take a torch) we ate at the Castle Hotel (lovely food, if service left a bit to be desired) and the Boars Head with fantastic home made Carribbean curry. Plenty of local food shops and a good live music venue at the Vaults.

I'd certainly come here again.

As a motorcycle tourer who appreciates peace and quiet, but at the same time being able to easily get to a pub, Foxholes really had everything I look for in a campsite!

The site is vast, with a number of fields to pitch in. It may have been midweek, but halfway through the school holidays I was surprised how few people appeared to be camped there. Probably because it was so easy to spread out. I find it hard to believe it ever 'feels' busy here.

At night there is no road noise, and barely any light pollution, yet the site is a mere 10-15 minute walk from Bishop's Castle town which has a surprising array of excellent pubs (including a live music venue - 'Vaults at the Rose and Crown') and a couple of places to eat, as well as a shop that opens until 10pm. The town itself is lovely to walk around - very picture postcard.

Toilets and Showers are in excellent condition and kept very clean. I never had to wait for a shower. There is also a small room with a sofa and a table where you could go and play board games if the weather got a bit grotty and you're in a small tent.

A big plus is the fact that they allow campfires, and wood is just 3 a bag!

In terms of location, it's actually good for exploring Snowdonia national park by motorbike or car (or possibly bicycle), and apparently there are some excellent walks starting near the campsite too.

All this for 8 a night (per adult). I'd certainly visit again.
