 Another fantastic holiday at Foxholes!

Due to Covid-19 it was a bit scary going for a holiday but the campsite had lots of subtle changes to help everyone. It felt safe and almost normal.

Not being able to utilise the communal room didn't matter because both the fridge and freezer had been made accessible as had a plug for people to charge phones etc.

Toilets were cleaned more regularly than usual and sanitiser was available at the door and inside. Some people were ignoring social distancing but most were being perfect.

Everyone camped far enough away from others, there was lots of space as numbers were reduced.

Food at the Greedy Fox was lovely as usual. There was a pizza company called Social Dough who came one night and that was tasty too.

It's a family run campsite which is eco friendly with things such as recycling and planting. We were treated to a visit by a mole, a barn owl, bats, red kites, kites, and lots of other wildlife. There are stunning views of the Shropshire from various places on the site.

Walking into the town involves crossing a fairly steep field, walking through woodland and crossing a road. At night, a torch is definitely required. It's a lovely walk. There are other walks nearby following the Shropshire Way.

I only used my car 3 of the 10 days just to explore other places nearby such as Lydham and Newtown.

On the site there are different fields for campervans, tents, caravans and motorhomes. We didn't use one but there are some electric hookups although many people bring solar panels to be in keeping with the eco idea.

It's such a great place that I don't want to share it!

 Had a great time at fox hills, a very picturesque setting amongst the Shropshire hills, Great friendly staff,

Would highly recommend this place.

Another bonus here are the separate areas that have alternatives, there is a converted railway carriage and a three other small cottage like buildings and a large barn that can be hired for functions.

The nearby town of bishops castle is idyllic and has a few shops.

Overall this is a wonderful site.

 As camping newbies we now have caught the bug after staying here. The views from the site are stunning and the facilities are kept spotless. The owners are very friendly and helpful.

£18 a night for 2 and a dog is excellent value for money. I can recommend using one of the washing machine drum fire pits !

There is a very pleasant walk across the fields to the town and the Three Tuns.

We will definitely be back

 Fabulous site with great views. Rather windy due to its elevated position but plenty of room if you wish to pitch on the lower end of the field. Facilities spotless.

Rather strict with regards visitors. Wished to meet up with old friends for a cuppa outside the van but wasn't allowed. So we had to meet up in the village, about 20 minute pleasant stroll.

That aside would definitely recommend the site.

Reviewer: Triggavilla 1 review from this member

 We stayed for 1 night on the big field straight ahead from the toilet and shower block. At £19 per night with no EHU, it’s probably not the cheapest of sites. (£9 p. P & £1 for our dog).

The field is sloping, but does enjoy far reaching views, especially if you pitch up on the right as you enter. Absolutely loads of space and privacy for our Tuesday night stay. I would assume it gets much busier at weekends. There were a few caravans in a poor state, and looked like they’d been stood, for quite sometime. It didn’t put us off, but it may some.

The toilet and shower block were spotless, and although we didn’t need to use the washing up facilities, they looked very clean too.

The site rightly encourages recycling, and there is a dedicated area for that, right opposite the toilet and shower block. The Elsan emptying point is to the side of the toilet block.

There is a snug/chill out area for campers, complete with a comfy looking settee and a book swap area. Sadly, due to the virus, this area was still closed.

We really enjoyed the off road walk into Bishops castle. The path runs to the rear of the the house, along part of the Shropshire Way, all the way into town. It’s probably under a mile, but it’s off road, so ideal if you’re taking the dog.

We’d definitely return to this site, and we enjoyed the ‘green’ feel to it, as well as the lovely walk into Bishops castle.
