 Excellent site in a superb location with clean facilities. Easy walking distance to two pubs and lovely walks on Long Mynd. We've been camping for 30+ years and we seek out sites like this.

No kids play area, no underfloor heated toilet block with piped music, just good, clean, basic facilities,

Plenty of space for the children to explore and very accommodating and friendly site owners.

Will certainly return.

 This is a wonderful campsite run by a lovely family. The location is picturesque with lovely walks straight from the campsite.

The facilities are fantastic and they had put excellent measures in for Covid - reducing how many could be in the toilets, cordoned off sections in the washing up and lots of hand sanitizer everywhere.

The campsite is very quiet and peaceful. We went for an afternoon out to Ludlow and also a visit to Wenlock Edge, both about a 20 - 30 minute drive. It was fully booked but didn't feel crowded.

We had a wonderful couple of nights and hope to visit again soon.

 This is a very nice site situated at the entrance to a steep-sided valley at the base of the Long Mynd. It is very sheltered and surprisingly secluded despite it's proximity to the village of Little Stretton.

The site is flat though I get the impression the ground may be susceptible to being waterlogged. The view is pretty good from the site and the sound of wind in the trees as well as the sound of the river are always appreciated.

The facilities, like many others have stated, are quite simple, yet well maintained and clean. Their main issues are likely to be that the showers will be draughty in colder/wetter weather, and the area for washing up is uncovered (again not ideal in wet conditions).

The owners are very friendly and are the only ones I've ever met that will address you by first name - you'll certainly feel welcome visiting this site. Walking access to the Long Mynd is easy and plentiful, and the nearby town of Church Stretton will have more or less everything you could need from both local stores and a chain-store supermarket.

I would certainly recommend and would certainly visit again if I am ever in the area.

 Great location, great on site catering. Basic facilities but adequate.

Pitching was pretty random, was getting v busy towards bank holiday weekend and tents were going up anywhere.

V popular (so not v quiet) but loved the position and catering and log bags for fires on their steel trays.

 Location, location, location! A beautiful site nestled in a little valley on the slopes of the Long Mynd.

Slightly rustic toilets and showers but no queues that we saw. Two public footpaths leading into the hills and only a 5 minute drive from Carding Mill Valley.

5 minutes to the nearest pub which served a nice pint of Guinness and lovely food. We'll be back!

 A lovely grass site situated in the rolling Shropshire hills giving some stunning views. As others mention two great pubs nearby both do food and have a few local real ales.

An hourly or so bus service stops at the Ragleth Inn serving trips to Ludlow or Church Stretton and beyond. Great site for walking, a public footpath runs right through the site.

The only negative is the rather basic toilet block although functional and clean.

 Our second visit to this site, it left a good impression the first time. Facilities are clean but basic. Showers are proper showers where you can adjust the height, temperature and power of the water.

The pot wash area is outside and gives a lovely view of the hills and the owners pretty garden. Pitches are level and on one side are next to the small stream that you drive through to get to the site.

The site is good for wildlife, we watched owls, buzzards, bats, etc and even a red kite fly over. Good walks straight from the site and more wildlife as well as wild ponies on the hills.

The owners are happy to point you in the direction of the best walks. Two pubs very close by and a nice walk to Church Stretton. We booked for two nights but ended up staying for a third night.

Looking forward to going back again.

 Lovely, peaceful campsite, in a great location, 2 good pubs in walking distance, friendly owners.

Facilities are a bit basic, but just adds to the charm, especially as when we were there a swift family were nesting in the eaves!

Will definitely be back.

 We visited Small Batch Campsite at the beginning of June.

The site is located in a beautiful location at the foot of the Long Mynd, with stunning views; there is a footpath from the campsite through the valley (National Trust). There is lots of other walks close by.

The site has four showers two for women & two for men, should the site be full (28 pitches) you may have to queue, they are located at the end of the house, in a very rustic setting. The facilities would benefit from being updated with a complete refurbishment, but having said that, everything works fine with plenty of hot water.

There is two washing up sinks located in the open, again plenty of hot water, so you hope it does not rain.

The pitches are a reasonable size; the pitches on the steam side of the site are much bigger with plenty of space in the front of your pitch. All the pitches have electric hook up, but they only supply 10 amps, so you need to be careful you donít trip the box out. There are plenty of water taps around the site & the grass was good condition, kept nice & short.

The site is on the edge of Little Stretton, just a three minute walk into the village that has two pubs serving food, we met some friends for lunch in the Ragleth Inn, and the food was good & reasonably priced.

Church Stretton, is about two miles away, a beautiful little town, with plenty of shops & cafes, also a nice size co-op shop for all you provisions.

Although the site is in the Shropshire hills, there are plenty of places of interest close by, with lovely villages & towns, with walks; also there is plenty of National Trust too complete you visit.

Well done Pam, who has run the site of 49 years that is what I call dedication.
