A lovely gem of a site. The pitch was big and level with electric hook up and a water supply. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The bar on site was warm and a great place to have a beer. Or three.

The toilets and shower block were spotless.

Definitely going back.

Our short stay at Cartref Caravan and Camping Site for 3 nights earlier in the month was superb - highly recommended. We were immediately welcomed by a friendly face, great service and a genuine welcome.

The site is well maintained and shower/toilets spotless and respected by other guests. The quirky bar has a lovely atmosphere to it. A quiet relaxing site.

The site is well located for local attractions (6 miles from Shrewsbury) and some lovely walks with the dogs. Thank you Chris and Katrina. We would definitely like to stay again soon. Wish you were closer to our home!

Just arrived home from a short break at Cartref. What a lovely time we had. Katrina and Chris are lovely people and really made us welcome.

Lovely location, Surrounded by fields and sheep. Toilet and shower block was warm and beautifully clean.

Love how you can order Pizzas! And love the little bar, lovely log burner and perfect place to get to know everyone!

We will definitely be back! Thankyou Katrina and Chris

Wow, what a fababulous site, we stayed 5 nights in pretty awful weather, but still enjoyed ourselves. The site is run by Katrina and Chris, who met us with a friendly welcome and let us choose our pitch. We chose no 37 looking out on the garden and fountain, pitches are large and all hardstanding.

Shower and toilet block is immaculate and as for the bar with its log burner, and great host Chris, selling real ale and a great selection of gins, it's just the added bonus.

Everything about this site is first class. We will be back, hopefully when the weather is warmer so we can enjoy sitting outside and enjoying the garden.

Stayed three nights in adult area level pitch set up excellent well laid out facing centre koy pond with well laid out gardens.

Dog walking area enough for my dog to have a walk around and to do what's needed also bio poo bags provided by camp site to be put into special disposal bin good idea.

Small quirky bar which we used selling drinks and special gins and local ales.

Also had a full English breakfast with local produce well worth the money pre order the night before

Enjoyed our three day break would come back if we are in the area in the future.

Well done for a well kept site one of the best shame it's a long way to travel would recommend this site.

Stayed for 5 nights on a fully serviced pitch, great sized pitches nicely private. Greeted by lovely friendly owners and warden, this is probably the friendliest site we have ever been on. Toilets and showers were very clean with plenty of hot water, push button showers which arent ideal but we understand why they are necessary.

The whole site was immaculate, short dog walk and off lead area which we appreciated. The reception was also a little shop selling a few essentials and local produce, delicious sausages and eggs.

The quirky on site bar was great, cosy with a log burner and a great selection of drinks, it was a great place to sit for a quiet drink and a very social space to chat with other guests, so much nicer than just sitting in our van or having to drive.

Only 10 minutes from Shrewsbury which is full of beautiful character buildings and great shops and restaurants, also a good base to travel around a bit further afield.

We loved our stay and would highly recommend the site, well be back.

Stayed at Cartref for a single night as a stop over on the way south with the family - what a lovely place, every bit as good as all of the previous positive reviews Id read.

Small, super-clean and beautifully presented. The owners are extremely friendly and run the little bar as something of a vocation - which made us very happy on the hot day we arrived!

Well definitely be returning to this jewel of a site.

Just returned from a fantastic week at Cartref.

Everything was perfect, there was nothing else we needed. Facilities were immaculate always spotless. Grounds were well cared for. Pitches were a good size with well kept hedges for privacy and the owners and wardens were brilliant, full of useful local information, really friendly and helpful. Our dog and our children were truly welcomed too.

Loved the little bar on site, served a great pint. We hope to return very soon.

Thank you for a fantastic stay

Reviewer: Nicolasmith1973 4 reviews from this member

Wow. What a beautiful site. Large, flat, well-draining pitches all separated by hedges for privacy. A lovely shop stocking local produce, a laundry, a children's play area, a small cafe and even a cute little bar! The facilities were always absolutely spotless with limitless free hot water, fresh flowers and even a shower stool for less able-bodied guests.

There's an adult-only area and a dog walk where dogs can be walked on-lead, or an enclosed field where they can run to their heart's content.

The site even provide free flushable poo bags. They really have thought of everything! The wardens and owners all went out of their way to make everyone's stay enjoyable.

We definitely will be returning later in the year.
