Fantastic CL ideally located for Ironbridge.

It is on a lovely flat field with fabulous views.

No toilet block but there is EHUs.

The owner is a charming gentleman who made us feel extremely welcome and also had extensive knowledge of the area.

There is a shop in the next village for newspapers. It's only a short walk but does involve a steep hill.

Ironbridge is just a mile away and if you're walking there is pavement. But it is down a steep hill.

Would definitely revisit.

Cary and I stayed at Leo Farm Caravan Club CL site over the October Half Term weekend. There were 2 of us and our aged collie Max. Although I have not used this site before I grew up locally and know the area very well. We stayed for 7 nights. The cost of the pitch was 12 including EHU with no additional charges for awning or dogs.

The site is a pleasant CL with set behind the owner's bungalow in the village of Benthall. The site is surrounded by pleasant farmland with long distance views over the Ironbridge Gorge. The site is very quiet and peaceful. There is room for 5 vans each with a 13amp EHU. There are several handstanding pitches and the rest are on grass. The grass is well cut and drained. The site is generally flat but we needed to use a ramp to get the 'van level from widthways.

There are no toilet or shower facilities. Nor are there any children's play facilities but there is enough space to play and some children staying on site, also, played in the adjacent farm fields where the grass had been harvested.

Access to the site is via a tarmac drive. It is important to approach the CL via the route given by the owner, via Much Wenlock or Broseley. Both of the routes from Ironbridge involve steep hills with hairpin bends and they are NOT suitable for towing.

The owner Norman Wyke was away on holiday until the last day of our stay but came to say hello when he returned on our last morning. He was very pleasant and helpful.

The site is about half a mile from the small town of Broseley. This has a small Co-operative Supermarket, petrol station and a range of small shops and pubs including a chip shop. We did not use any of these. There is a new Tesco supermarket in the centre of Madeley, my home town, about 4 miles away. The extensive shopping Centres of Telford new town are about 8 miles away.

The site is ideally located for visiting the famous Ironbridge and other related museums. The Ironbridge and picturesque village of Ironbridge set on the slopes of Gorge are only about a mile away. The Museums are well worth visiting particularly the 'Victorian Town' which has been recreated at Blists Hill. The cheapest way of visiting the museums is by way of the Passport ticket. This non-transferrable ticket costs c22 per person and gives admission to all the 6 museums without any time limit and repeated admission to all 6 museums during the following 12 months. We did not visit the museums on this holiday but have done many times in the past.

Shropshire is a beautiful county and there are a number of places to visit within easy travelling distance of the caravan site. A particular favourite of ours is Bridgnorth. This interesting town is built on 2 levels on the sides of a gorge above the River Severn. It has a historical funicular 'Cliff Railway' linking the 'high' and 'low' towns and it, also, the northern terminus the Severn Valley Railway which runs steam and other trains along the Severn valley to Bewdley.

The county town of Shrewsbury, about 15 miles away, is another historical town well worth a visit. It has a castle, several museums and a wide range of shops restaurants. It has several park and ride services from the edge of the town. For those who like walking there is Wenlock Edge near the nearby small historic town of Much Wenlock and further afield the Shropshire 'Hill Country' around the historic small town of Church Stretton offers a wealth of hill walks.

A few minor negatives, however about the site. The only toilet/grey water emptying facilities are the drain manhole cover adjacent to the owner's bungalow. One has to lift the cover using metal rods - a bit awkward, especially for any with limited mobility. There is an adjacent tap with a fitted hose to rinse out waste containers. The drinking water tap is right next to the rubbish bins and recycling boxes without any form of screen or barrier and so it is perhaps a little weak on hygiene. One of the other residents regularly allowed his 5 dogs to wander around the site unaccompanied and on several occasions one soiled we found dog's mess on our pitch. Norman said that he would speak to the person involved but of course that was on the morning of our departure.

Lovely site, hardstanding and grass (like a lawn) all with electric hook up. Fantastic views and sunsets. Owner very friendly and helpful.

Different crates provided by dustbin for recycling. Perfect site for visiting all the museums of Ironbridge and the owner had vouchers to get into the museums. We had an annual passport so did not need them. Passport worth buying if you plan to visit all or most of the museums as it works out cheaper. You can revisit the museums as many times as you wish on the annual passport. Enginuity (science museum) is brilliant for kids - and adults! with lots of hands on activities. Other museums had activities for children because it was half term.

Co-op in Broseley behind the Texaco (I think) garage next to the traffic lights. Plenty of other shops in Broseley. Didn't try any of the pubs or eat out. Bridgnorth to the south an interesting place and worth a visit. Would definitely use the site again.

My Wife and I recently stayed for 7 nights on this well kept site, The field was like a lawn with lovely views over Ironbridge.

The site owner was very obliging and informed us of all the places to visit in Ironbridge,the village of Broseley and the nearby Town of Bridgnorth.This is a small CL with electric hook ups With 5 pitches. We would highly recommend this site to future visitors.

We have just spent 10 nights at this Caravan Club Certified Location (CL) with our 9 year old son and would thoroughly recommend it. It is situated only a mile from the Ironbridge Gorge Heritage Site and provides an ideal base for exploring that and the surrounding area. The CL is quiet and well maintained with beautiful views, and the site owner is friendly and extremely helpful. We visit a lot of CLs and we think that this is certainly up there amongst the best!

Hi my Wife and I went to this site in july 06 had a great time. A warm welcome, and ex helpful couple run this site. Our dog Bryn loved the field were he was allowed to run. Great vews from the caravan, close to Ironbridge. We stayed a few days longer than we had booked.

Going there again this year, with friends who have not been to Ironbridge. Only prob no toilet shower, but who cares!

A caravan club CL that lives up to expectations by providing good value for money. A really nice site run by nice people. Very quiet with great views and relaxing walks. Its about 11/2 miles to the nearest shops in the village of Broseley and there are some great pubs and restaurants.

Reviewer: Trevmgee 1 review from this member

A well kept small caravan club CL with nice views. One mile from the iron bridge gorge,If you intend visiting the museums the site owner is able to offer passport to enable you to visit all museums (At present 42.00 per family). Also ideal if like us you like to don walking boots there is plenty of opportunity with wenlock edge and the long mynd within easy commuting distance.
