 Nice small Site, showers and toilets were cleaned everyday, the people from the pub and locally were friendly,

We ate in the pub only once and it was very good, they didn't serve food in the week and on Monday were not open at all.

Good location Bishops castle 3 miles away and walkable, would use the site again.

 Nice flat site with WHY & mains water. Clean, we'll maintained & warm toilet block.

Nice friendly team in the pub.

Only issue I experienced was that there was No-one on site on arrival and the board hadn't been updated so had no idea which pitch to use.

 Very peaceful site. Beautiful surroundings.

Friendly helpful staff. Right next to the pub. Good local beer.

Walcot Hall is just up the road, though it was closed when we were there.

 Wow. A gem of a campsite with 12 pitches in total for tents, caravans & motorhomes in a lovely setting. Showers were clean & warm.

All for 5 ppn, an absolute bargain.

Pub food (restricted to basket meals at the moment, but the best chips I've had for ages) was lovely and the real ale was very good.

 Stayed here for 1 night, and so pleased it was only one. It is the worse site I have stayed in for a long while.

The toilets weren't clean, the dryers didn't work in the ladies, although there was a towel. The lights didn't always come on in the toilets so you had to go in in the dark. Someone who has said they were clean and spotless, has something wrong. I didn't shower as it didn't look clean.

There were flies in the kitchen sink, it was really grubby with a dirty washing up brush.

It is a nice field, flat and mown. No-one else there except us. As it is a lovely site at the end of the track to Walcot Hall, why doesn't someone clean up the facilities.

The pub in front of the site, was good, we ate there and the staff are really friendly and the food was good, but wouldn't camp here again.

I suppose it is cheap at 10 a night but would pay more, if it was nice.

 Site was clean, and tidy. Staff were very helpful. Local facilities need planning as transport links are limited.

Food and beer at site attached pub was good.

Site facilities were minimal and would struggle to cope with a full site

 One of the best toilet blocks I've come across, clean and heated, looks like it was a former lodge from the estate. Showers are free.

Good location, alongside the drive to the local big house. Friendly landlord. Tent fee for one small tent with one person was 5.

Good local beer in pub (Monty's and Ludlow). Friday night when I visited was fish and chip night - 5 a meal.

Will use again if in the area.

Reviewer: Maisie3351 2 reviews from this member

 Stayed here for 1 night recently. Pretty disappointing. It's a small field just behind the pub, adjacent to a road.

The showers and loos were far from spotless. We had electric hook up - for which we were charged 10 a night, which I thought was extortionate. A previous reviewer has commented that campers were allowed in the arboretum / lakes area.

We were not told this - and felt rather cheated by the site, after looking at the website. Not far from Bishops Castle, which is a delight! The surrounding countryside is beautiful.

 This is a lovely little site in a beautiful location.

Field is nice and flat and the only traffic is people going up to Walcot Hall and people horse riding from the stables there.

We met friendly staff at the office of the Hall and they explained that we were permitted free entry to the arboretum as campers and also to fish on either of the two pools. My husband and sons had a lot of fun catching most tench from one of the pools. The grounds are beautiful and it really is an idyllic spot.

We only stayed a weekend but found the showers to be cold when we tried them but the building itself was lovely and warm.

The only draw back is there is nowhere to freeze coolpacks and as we don't normally use EHU this would limit us to a shorter stay - if they could put a small freezer in the kitchen area this would get 9/10.

The adjacent pub is very nice and has a pool table too!
