From the manager...
Please send your name and address we will happily refund you. We don't understand how mature professional couple don't get concept of recycling . The camp-site is not run by staff, just a hard working couple that put wildlife and environment first. 10 minutes walk across fields is Beautiful town of Bishops Castle with tourist information, swimming pool, large children's play area and lots of independent shops, that we encourage our campers to frequent.
Week's stay in caravan to enjoy walking 5 Dec 2010

From the manager...
We do not take deposits, so do find it easier to take money on arrival, when we explain concept of no set pitches, but lots of room for everybody 10 acres over 4 fields go along way in very rural south Shropshire. We always say we are full way before we are as we like toilets and showers our and our campers experience too be good. Sometimes people are determined to have things only their way.
Great views, but don't expect a warm welcome if you're young... 22 Aug 2010
