 Lovely well kept site, friendly people.

Toilets and showers were closed at time of visit due to COVID restrictions but they did look immaculate. Ruyton X1 towns a short walk away.

The only thing that spoilt it for us was the caravan next door which had been there for a week or so had parked their vehicle on the grass part of our pitch, the owner said he would ask him to move it when he saw him, it stayed there for all of our stay.

Reviewer: Nessley 5 reviews from this member

 Site was very clean and quiet but quite a lot of road noise

Also the chemical disposal arrangement was unsatisfactory- there was no running water available at the point of disposal- just a warring can. This meant facility could not be flushed and was pretty smelly

Waste water involved lifting a heavy concrete cover and towing a full water warrior up s wood ramp. Then getting waste water all over your hand as you undid the cap

Neither of these waste facilities were well thought out or hygienic

Shower block was very clean and well maintained but £1 for a 5 minute showers was a bit steep as it was only just enough time

No dog walk, just walk dog around site

 Lovely site which is extremely clean and tidy. Great spacing between units, and really friendly and helpful owner.

Toilet block is really nicely fitted out with the most amazing power shower! Best I have seen on a campsite.

Nice and easy to find.

 This was our first foray into caravanning. For us we couldn't have had a better site for us.

Absolutely perfect, quiet, tranquil. Once we had paid and shown around we were left alone. The site is picturesque.

The shower block is new and clean, the site is well maintained. An excellent stay we had, just what we wanted.

 Nice site, split into different sections, one area is a club site.

Hard standing pitches surrounded by grass. Mainly seasonal caravans but a few pitches for passing trade.

Toilet block is a portacabin but was kept very clean.

 Returned the site over the Easter break, very busy all pitches taken. The extra pitches added last year are now available some reserved for CC members. These are separated by small conifers (or will be when they grow). All pitches are double hardstanding.

The site has 3 main areas which are well spaced out the section behind the tall conifers is taken by seasonal tourers. The owner is always on hand for a friendly chat or busy doing odd jobs around the site.

The campsite is well positioned for visiting Shrewsbury (approx. 8-10 miles), Oswestry (approx. 6 miles) for larger shopping requirements, smaller everyday items are available from the Spar shop in Baschurch (approx. 2 miles).

If you’re looking for a well run friendly value for money campsite in this area then give Barncroft Touring Caravan site a try you will not be disappointed.

Reviewer: Chocolatelabs 1 review from this member

 Just returned from a very good 4 night stay at this well run and friendly campsite.

All the pitches were hard standing, with electric hook-ups. Water, waste and chemical disposal were well positioned, and recycling well catered for.

Toilets and a shower were available and very clean. Campsite well positioned for visiting many places within an hours drive. Mr Eccleston was very helpful and accommodating.

The site is very secure with electronic entry/exit gate. Road outside busy during the day, but quiet at night. A site we will certainly be visiting again in the near future

Reviewer: Meandmygirl 7 reviews from this member

 Great site, which is undergoing some development with the owner constantly improving things. He's just added 10 new pitches. A number of pitches are taken up by seasonal users many of whom are extremely friendly.

Toilets are a Portacabin, one shower for women and one for men small charge for using. The grass is well maintained by the very busy owner, recycling facility also in use. No play area or facilities for young children.

Well worth a visit we will be returning.

 Just over a mile off the A5, the site is currently being upgrade and enlarged. The works have no impact on the pitches as they are taking place at the far end of the site.

There is a gated entrance for which you need a code, we rang the number on the gate and were let in straight away. The owner is very friendly and helpful and obviously working hard on the site with lots of landscaping taking place.

Currently there are two area, separated by hedges, The rear area is mainly seasonal, with a few extra touring pitches. The front area has a few seasonal vans but several more touring pitches. All pitches are hardstanding with hook up. There are several water taps and a chem disp and grey water dump.

There is wifi across the site for £1. 50 per night. The showers / loos are in a portacabin type building, as previous reviewer states £1 or 20p depending on how long you want - we didn't use so can't comment on them.

We used for a one night stopover and it was peaceful as only us on site. We paid £13 with hookup (showers and wifi extra).

 Showers now only 20p

Don't miss out on a lovely site.

Only 5 mins from the A5
