General

  • Small and friendly meadow site near the Shropshire Hills
  • Within 10 minutes' walk of Much Wenlock
  • Campfires allowed: logs and kindling available on site

Good times for all ages can be anticipated at Withies Campsite near Wenlock Edge in Shropshire: if you want a peaceful and relaxed setting with stacks of space for the kids to let off steam, this family-friendly place will tick all your holiday boxes.

The big draw here is the friendly vibe from amiable owners and seasoned campers Claire and Carol, who'll be seen on site keeping everything shipshape (and sorting out logs and kindling for your evening campfire). The shower cabin has hot showers and well-maintained toilet facilities kept to sparkling standards.

Other topping factors are the big and safe natural area for kids to run around in away from the main site, and the closeness of Withies to activities of all sorts, including hikes around the Shropshire Hills, industrious visits to Ironbridge and its museums, and mooching around Shrewsbury, under half an hour's drive away.

Withies is set in six acres of grassy meadow on Wenlock Edge near the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It's a 10-minute walk to the historic market town of Much Wenlock and its visitor centre, traditional shops and a satisfying selection of pubs and restaurants.

Clean and well-intentioned site, but quite slopey. 28/10/2018

  • Liked: 

    The campsite was simple, clean, quiet and dark.

    We were the only people there so had total choice about where to go!

    Disliked: 

    Despite having complete choice about where to park up, the whole site was on a slope. We couldnt find a single patch that was flat. To be fair, we had been aware that there was a slope when we booked so this wasn't a surprise.

    I'm not the greatest fan of porta-loos, but then again, a loo is a loo!

    Having booked and paid online, It was quite disconcerting turning up, staying and leaving without seeing a single person. But hey, we had somewhere to stay for the night.

    We had originally thought that we would walk into Much Wenlock during the evening, but the walk to town would have been down a steep hill, with not much footpath and no/ not much light. The weather wasn't great, so we decided against it. There's an easy 10 minute walk, and then again there's a more challenging 10 minute walk - I think this would have been the latter!

From the manager...

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review.
We are sorry to have missed you. This is not our usual style at all, quite the contrary, but my father was terminally ill, and this was our priority the night you stayed. I hope you understand.

Local attractions

Withies Campsite is in prime position for Shropshire's country, town and historic attractions, from its setting near the Shropshire Hills and within walking distance of town. Much Wenlock is between Shrewsbury and Bridgnorth, with the Ironbridge Gorge and the town of Telford to the north-east.

Within a few minutes' walk is the limestone escarpment of Wenlock Edge, a Site of Special Scientific Interest running for over 19 miles between Craven Arms and Much Wenlock. It includes the marked trail of the Shropshire Way, the bridle path of the Jack Mytton Way, and eccentric structures like the tower Flounder's Folly, which many walks around the area pass.

The Ironbridge Gorge Museums should entice even the most reluctant of small Shropshire holidaymakers: this UNESCO World Heritage Site has 10 museums telling the tale of Britain's Industrial Revolution, including the Blists Hill Victorian Town and Enginuity, an interactive design and technology centre with shows and workshops.

Also make time for a trip on the spectacular Severn Valley Railway, on its 16-mile route through the Severn valley and along the River Severn for much of the way. The track runs from Bridgnorth to Kidderminster; alight nearby at Ironbridge Level Crossing, or nine miles from Withie at Bridgnorth.

County capital Shrewsbury is 13 miles away, and the market town of Ludlow within 23.

Must see

  • Much Wenlock Priory (0.8 miles)
  • Enginuity (4.3 miles)
  • Ironbridge Gorge Museums (4.4 miles)

National Trust

  • Wilderhope Manor (5.8 miles)
  • Attingham Park Estate: Cronkhill (7.0 miles)
