To Find Site:- Once past Shrewsbury continue on A5 towards Oswestry. At end of dual carriageway take first left roundabout onto B4396 signed for Knockin and campsite can be seen ahead on the left.

This campsite is situated just off the main A5 about between Shrewsbury and Oswestry. It is not a large site having some 65 pitches set out around gravelled access roads. There is a mix of hardstanding and grass pitches, most having an open aspect. The site is open all year and non-members are accepted. Electric points are convenient to the pitches. There is one toilet block which is functional rather than luxurious. The building also contains laundry and dishwash facilities and the chemical toilet disposal point. Next to the toilet block is the motorhome service point. It only has a small drain point but should be wide enough to use with vans with wastes points on either side of the vehicle. Water and waste water points are dotted around the site. Near to Reception is what is called “The Barn” which is a multi-use building where events are held and it also has a TV and sitting area, a useful place for tent campers in wet weather. Reception sells a few essentials. Site wide WiFi is available and free, it seems to offer a reasonable signal as well. There is no on site play facilities for children so perhaps not as child friendly as other sites. Pitches near the front of the site may suffer from road noise but this is usually during the day time. We arrived the last day of August and felt that nearly £29 a night was expensive for what is a fairly basic campsite.

This site is conveniently place to visit both Oswestry and Shrewsbury and also into North Wales. For those that don’t have, or perhaps would prefer not to use their own transport there are a couple of bus services from immediately outside the campsite. Both offer an hourly service from Monday to Saturday. For shopping there are several supermarkets in Oswestry including a Morrisons next to the bus station and a Sainsburys. Oswestry is a nice town to wander around and when you want a rest go down to Cae Glas Park for a sit in the park.

Some sites are destinations in their own right. This one isn't as it is in the middle of nowhere, next door to the A5, between Oswestry & Shrewsbury. That said, it is a lovely area of the country but you will need a car to explore its charms.

The site is nothing flashy and the road noise may bother some but everything was clean & working - including the free wifi - for our visit. Camping pitches are level and the grass was cut. There is a recreation room with a TV and some board games. However this isn't really a site for children. Reception sells some basic supplies and you can order newspapers. There is extensive local information available and some discounts in village pubs. Owestry has Aldi & Sainsburys.

We visited Chirk castle (Nat Trust): a cross between a traditional Welsh castle & a stately home. It is expensive but allow all day for a visit as the gardens are extensive. In contrast the Pontcysyllte Aquaduct (Lllangollen Canal) is free and also great fun to walk over but you can get a boat ride. Small children may find it too scary but older children who have studied canals in school will enjoy both the history and the 'wow' factor. Another recommendation for a good weather day would be to visit the Stiperstones & Bog Visitor Centre south of Shrewsbury. You need to be able to walk a mile or so on roughish footpaths to reach the summit ridge but the rocky outcrops and extensive views are worthwhile.

The site has both hardstanding and grass pitches and the usual C&C Club facilities. In addition there is a large common room, with books and games, where social get-togethers are often arranged.

A fish & chip van calls on Fridays, very welcome.

Unfortunately, the Reception is less welcoming. The site feels very much like a clique, with regular repeat visitors.

The free WiFi is absolutely useless, but when I told the woman in Reception she insisted that nobody else had complained, suggesting it was my fault. I have bought a one-year WiFi pass for C&C Club sites, but hers is a private system because 'people won't want to pay'. I had to point out that I prefer to pay for something that works and she was quite rude.

I wouldn't return, the site is too far from anywhere, and walking means a dangerous busy road.

This was our first visit to this site. Our first impressions were of a slightly scruffy little site. However the very warm welcome allayed our worries. The site is on sloping ground but pitches are mostly level. We were advised about siting to get good TV reception and location of toilets showers etc. The toilets/showers and other facilities were dated but clean, the promised free wifi wasn't working at any time during our visit. The reception housed a small, shop with essentials and papers to order.

The hourly buses to both Shrewsbury and Oswestry stop at the site gate. A Fish and chip van visits weekly and the social room houses a cake and chat session weekly where home baked goods are sold. The information room gives details of lots of local walks and local eateries.

We were not disturbed by road noise despite a nearby main road.

Arrived in the afternoon. The lady on reception wasn't a people's person which always surprises me when they are in such a role. We were shown a couple of available hard standings. We parked up but felt crammed in so we asked the lady on reception if we could move to a grass pitch 'I'll have to charge you more' I said for grass? She then retracted but didn't offer a refund.

Her husband Pete was lovely and he showed us grass standing availability. We chose one and felt much happier with more space, it felt like camping.

The washing facilities were good and very clean. They do need paper hand towels or a hand-dryer instead of one hand towel for the whole camp. My partner was happy with the men's facilities.

They have a fish n chip mobile unit on site each Friday 5-7pm which seemed very popular.

The downside for us was we thought we were in easy walking distance from local pubs and the centre of Oswestry, but we weren't and that was disappointing. If you have a caravan then you can use the car for trips out. We like to park up the VW Campervan and walk or get public transport. We had a day in Shrewsbury on the number 70 bus which stops outside the site. It wad £3. 50 one way.

We wouldn't stay here again due to location but Shropshire is lovely and worth a trip.

Very nice site. Toilets and showers were very clean and well maintained and pitches were nice size. Wardens were very pleasant and helpful and there is free wifi. Bus stop right outside site, to either Shrewsbury, which is a lovely town, or Oswestry. It was good stopover on our way to North Wales. Would go back
