 Just returned from this first class site. The Facilities are wonderful ( even though there are only two toilets and showers )

As this is an adults only site it means that everyone respects the facilities and cleans up after they have used them. Robin was very friendly and helpful.

Ellesemere itself is very close and you can walk it, there is a tesco close by. The walk along the canal is a must.

We will be returning to this site, very soon.

 Stayed here over the Wedding Bank Holiday weekend x 3 nights with electric hook up.

1st - The area is a beautiful part of the English countryside. The meres are lovely places to visit. The town centre is quite a walk from the site and there are no shops, pub, take aways between the town & site.

2nd - The Site, is really geared up more for caravanning than campers, this was our first time camping we were at the edge of the 2nd field on a slope and open to all the elements. On a positive note the view was stunning but in gale force winds which we had over the weekend it was not ideal.

At the time of our stay there were around 20 pitches being used. There is a single log cabin with 2 rooms. Each room has a toilet, shower and sink. There are no other facilities so if someone is having a shower you have to wait to use the toilet. On a positive note they are warm and clean. Also some lighting between the 2nd field and the showers/toilets would be a great improvement. Lastly there are no washing up facilities.

It is a shame as the owner was very nice and friendly it's just the facilities that let the site down and maybe he could think a little more when siting campers.

 Site well sign posted, steep short hill to the site.

Toilets / showers all done its a log cabin which is very well kitted out with a small waiting area that has leaflets and two units each with toilet sink and shower. Very modern and clean but was a wait on this very busy weekend.

We were on the second field which has great views and I didn't notice any traffic noise but we were on the overflow so didn't have our own tap which many other pitches did have.

2 Chaps were very helpful and spent over 30 mins assisting us with levelling and hooking up - I'm guessing one was Robin the owner and I think the other was the warden.

You can go over the field and slight right cross over cut through the field to the canal which is a better walk to Ellesmere, we didn't care much for Ellesmere but did enjoy a meal at the Red Lion on the way to the mere.

You cant walk right round the Mere which disappointed us. Visited Wem and Market Drayton which we thought were not great and almost derilict but liked Oswestry if you want shopping.

Recommend the caravan site due to being adults only but we were not over keen on the surrounding area, but very reasonable fees at 14 per night wouldn't hesitate to go again for Bank holiday Fri - Mon 41 you cant argue with that.

All in all a good site for adults with dogs that want to just chill.

 We spent 2 nights here as we were attending a nearby dog show, the entrance is well signed and on arrival we found the pitches level and well maintained,
Robin was very welcoming and extremely helpful Ellesmere is a short walk away with the new superstore easy to find. If you listen carefully you can hear some traffic noise, but it in no way spoils the tranquil setting.
When the new facilities are built this will be a very very nice site, we will be back again next year for sure.

 Great views adult only 16 amp hookup water next to pitch flat grassy pitches which we found good and firm and really nice owners in Robin and Jane. Robin has plans to extend the number of caravans to about another 10 in the next field and to build a toilet/shower block. You can walk into Ellesmere and nearby are Oswestry and Wrexham. There is a Tesco supermarket opening in August in Ellesmere. There are plenty of mere's and great walking in the area. The only downside for us was the road noise from the A495 although not too intrusive at night was a bit of a pain if you wanted a day on site or sit in the early evening having a quiet drink. The field also seems to be used for training young horse riders which quite surprised us. Still overall a thoroughly enjoyable time spent at the Newnes

 We really enjoyed our stay at this site. It is very well kept and ideally located for walkers and folks with dogs. The toilet block hadn't been built but I am sure having met the owner it will be first class when it is.

The views are really good.

 Small, tranquil adults only site on the edge of Ellesmere. The site has 10 pitches at present, on well drained, mown grass. All 10 pitches have electric & water. Toilet & shower facilities planned in the near future which will make it an even more perfect site for a peaceful break - current prices reflect limited facilities.
Wonderful views across to the Welsh borders with beautiful sunsets, apparently, but it was a bit too cloudy while we were there to appreciate these. Access to the Shropshire Union canal nearby which takes you into Ellesmere,a small town with basic shopping facilities and a number of pubs (avoiding the main road). Robin, the owner, very pleasant and helpful. We will definitely be back.

 Robin is working towards a perfect tranquil site. Easy walk along the roadside or a canal side walk to Ellsmere.

Robin is so helpful and obliging. His site is perfect for peace and quite.

His elsan and bin area are an area to die for, he has landscaped this little area.

When he manages to get his toilet and shower area built I can see we will have difficulties getting on this site. 

Date of Visit: February 2008 Unit:  Motorhome
Reviewer: Bertndoris 14 reviews from this member

 This is a recently opened site and at this time suitable for self sufficient units only, due to no toilet/shower block being available as yet (planned for later in the year?).

There are however, chemical toilet disposal points, grey water disposal, and of course fully serviced pitches with both water, and elec hook up etc.)

Having said that, it is in one of the most beautiful parts of Shropshire, set within a lovely and peaceful hamlet, easily accessible off the A495, and is possibly a rare flat site nestled in the Shropshire hills, with indeed lovely views. All Pitches are grass, but even visiting in February, due to the elevation of the site, the ground is well drained, dry, and certainly firm enough for our large motorhome.

We walked the 15 minutes into Ellesmere town itself, a very quaint old market town, and from there picked up a lovely walk along the canal, bearing left, up round a wooded circular walk that then dropped us down to Ellesmere mere itself.

Overall, beautiful quiet location, excellent flat and serviced pitches, and bring your walking feet to get the best of this area. Well worth a weekend stay.
