 The campsite was very quiet which was ideal in these times of corona virus,

Angela the owner was very nice and supplied fresh eggs, visiting every night to make sure all was ok.

 A really enjoyable stay on this simple site. Facilities are basic, but this is what we wanted. No caravans with candelabra, no kids riding round on bikes, just other campers having a good time.

Great location for walking in the Shropshire Hills, especially the Long Mynd.

Angela is a very hospitable hostess and we will definitely return.

Reviewer: Twptwp 5 reviews from this member

 I liked the campsite, and was surprised there were not more people there. The field is so big that even in high summer, I couldn't see it getting anywhere near full. By contrast, a nearby site in the same price range that I also looked at was basically full at the weekend I arrived. I prefer sites like these to others which offer extensive facilities but at a considerably higher price. The charge for me and my tent was 6 per night and there was no charge for my car.

The new block is nice, though it is unisex, which might not suit some. It has two showers and two toilets, all coming off a central area with wash basin, a sink for washing up in and a small table and some chairs. The hot water for showers and washing up was properly hot.

Next to the new block, there is an evidently older block, with two (chemical) toilets and a wash basin, and that block is a useful facility if you don't mind the cobwebs etc. Both blocks are in the wooded area, just beyond the gate at the far left hand corner after you enter the site from the road, so most people opted to pitch towards that corner.

The portaloos were still there and were much nearer the entrance from the road, but they didn't seem attractive given the other options. Overall, the facilities seemed fine given how few people there were there, but would be pressed if the place became popular.

Unless one's fellow campers are noisy, the site is very quiet, being away from noisy roads, though still fairly easy to get to. There are sheep in nearby fields but they weren't a problem. It was easy to get tent pegs into the ground and I liked being able to park my car next to my tent, which not all sites allow. Mobile coverage (O2, EE and Three at least) was OK or good.

The showers are 1 for five minutes, and though they are well-designed, it's a rush to get showered in that time. I realise that the owners probably need to recoup the costs of the new block, but it would be much better if one were allowed a bit longer, and isn't going to make much difference to the total time you are occupying the shower, or the energy cost.

A few other things that would improve it. I found it surprisingly annoying having to open and close the entrance gate from the road and the gate to the wooded area which contains the shower/toilet block.

The former entails getting out of the car, and both have to be lifted off the ground to some extent. But it's a farm, so I guess the gates are necessary. The nearest shop is not within walking distance.

There is little on-site supervision - the owners are very friendly and keen for one to have a good stay, but they live about half a mile away, so any noisy campers probably aren't going to get dealt with quickly, though I had no problems while I was there. Hand soap is provided, but seemed to have run out in some places.

Overall, I would certainly choose to stay there again.

 Have stayed at this site many, many times. Beautiful setting, large grassed field with wooded area attached. Almost always tranquil (occasional well behaved youth groups and just once very badly behaved large group of adults). We love it and visit as often as we can.

Very friendly owners have had new toilet / shower block built so facilities good. Great base for exploring the surrounding area. Highly recommended.

Reviewer: 5787robinb 7 reviews from this member

 It's a field! Make sure you go to the toilet before you leave the pub / cafe / supermarket / library as the portable loo is the not the most desirable place you would like to spend 3 minutes. 4 per person is fair doos.

Beautiful area couple o decent boozers nearby. Green dragon and ragleth.

Reviewer: Ruffcamper 2 reviews from this member

 This place is great, loads of room, basic facilities but a great fire circle in the woods. There were other people on site, but the the field is huge so we had acres of space. Super laid back owner, cheap fees.

If you don't know the area, it is beautiful round here. For walking the long mynd and the Shropshire hills should provide enough varied action for anyone.

Church stretton and shrewsbury are well worth a visit if you want good independent shops, and the pubs we visited in little stretton, the ragleth, sold good food and nice beer.

Reviewer: Angiemfak77 1 review from this member

 We just got back from 3 nights here after our first ever Camping trip in a tent. We chose this site because we wanted somewhere that allowed freedom for our Dog and also in the beautiful Shropshire Countryside.

I was really dubious as we are normally the 'Always happens to us' type people so was expecting the worse, but I'm happy to say this place was perfect for us! We loved it.

Back to basics camping in gorgeous surroundings. The field itself is huge place and when we arrived on the Tuesday we were the only people there, we chose an area close to the forest and the simple amenities which I'll come to in a bit.

The field is surrounded by glorious Shropshire hills, the forest and a farm on the other side, a county lane runs past the entrance but this is a very quiet back road and we noticed maybe 2 or 3 vehicles passing by each day.

The Owner seemed like a nice lady and explained that her Brother's sheep are used to keep the grass cut - which we had discovered upon arrival when we spent 10 minutes checking and clearing a pitch area of the sheep droppings (not that much but needs mentioning for those of you who are expecting a perfect lawn).

Said brother then arrived then next morning and asked us if we minded the sheep coming on that day - very polite of him to ask we thought and we obviously agreed to his request, sheep were no bother, took the dog a couple of hours to adjust and had to be told a few times not to chase them off, although it sort of felt like we had a patronus guarding the tent as the sheep wouldn't come within 20m of us with the Springer Spaniel on constant watch lol.

The Dog loved it - probably more then we did and is currently dreaming deeply of her camping trip, the forest is ideal for dogs and walking, I would have liked to have camped in the woods - wonder if that's possible next time?

Ok - the facilities

2 tardis loos at the entrance and a brick/wood shack inside the forest that serves as a loo, separate chemical disposal and wash room, some information in there too about local area- campsite info etc. Outside the shack is the water tap and also in the forest is a firepit area with a picnic table and aluminium wind breaks for building a fire, very concealed and quiet place, will definitely be back!

Was just me, him and the dog, not sure how kids would do here, but I reckon it would spoil the peace as its such a lovely quiet site in serene surroundings, kids would be bored probably - although there is the forest.

Overall for our first camping trip I would give this place 9/10. They lose a point for the sheep poop, but this is to be expected in this sort of place and providing you take some bags with you to clear it up - its no big deal.

Also your dog basically can do as they please here, providing you pick up their poop! Also gave them a 9/10 as the facilities are really basic and a little dated - but I guess this adds to the experience

Also- free range eggs was lovely - 1 for 6, and at 8 a night for a 6 berth huge tent and car - can't go wrong!

Reviewer: Harpoe 1 review from this member

 Went camping here with our 2 kids & border collie over the Easter bank holiday, as our usual haunt was fully booked. We rang to book before going & the owner said she could squeeze us in.

On arrival we were pleasantly surprised to find that there wasn't many folk there at all (11 tents 2 caravans 1 motorhome) Despite it being advertised online & in brochures as holding 10 tents & 5 Caravans the field was clearly capable of holding a lot more (double?) and all the tents were well spaced apart.

However this site is not for the camper who insists on all mod cons, there is no electric, showers or hot water. The toilet block consists of a rustic but well maintained & clean Tin shack nestled on the edge of the small woods, which hold two wc's (one for chemical waste disposal) one cold water sink.

It displayed a large map of the area and various leaflets & out and about info. There were also 2 'Tardis' like chemical toilets near the entrance.

The owner is very friendly and laid back and emphasised on booking that there was virtually no rules. There was ample access to the hills for walking just a short distance down the lane & our dog (and others) were able to roam free.

Apart from longhorn foghorn the cockerel crowing at 5am we had a very pleasant stay and will be returning for some good old basic camping and peace and quiet.

 We used this site on the August bank holiday, and what a little gem it turned out to be.

Because it is a little out of the way,it was a really peaceful place to go, and only 40 mins from Telford where I live.

Clean tidy and very picturesque, set in the landscape of the award winning Shropshire hills.

Very basic, but beautiful and friendly.

The very beautiful Cardingmill valley, and the town of church stretton are within a short car ride, also is Craven arms, where you will find the famous Harry Tuffins supermarket for all your provisions.

Hamperley is the perfect base if you visit Shropshire.

Reviewer: Pauliner 1 review from this member

 I have just returned from this site. It is a big open field (sheep were grazing in it) with woodland next to it. Wood is ideal if you have a dog and children. The campsite is very basic with a toilet block with 2 toilets, you need a torch at night to use as it doesn't have any electricity. There is a drinking water tap. I would recommend it if you like a no frills basic back to nature camping. Well priced too, cost us 10 a night for 2 adults, 3 children and a dog. It is only about 5-10mins drive to Church Stretton where there are plenty of shops and Carding Mill valley for walking.
