- Firepit and gas cooker provided; three pubs and lots of trails nearby
It’s pretty darn peaceful at Minton Hill Pods in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Just step outside, ready your hiking boots or bicycle and choose from the many sleepy country lanes surrounding this purpose-built camping pod site.
From this spot four miles south of Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd, some tracks will take you all the way to the heather-carpeted plateau. There’s wild swimming there too – a welcome way to cool off after the hour-long walk. Cyclists are a few hundred yards from the Minton Bach mountain bike trail, a well-regarded single-track ride.
The Minton Hill Pods are in a remote, small and highly peaceful woodland on a family-run hill farm, down a short, solid stone track and half a mile south of Anglo-Saxon settlement of Minton. Solar panels power the lights and charging points in the pods, which are fully insulated and have room for two adults.
Simply stack the beds (bedding is provided) to maximise your space if you’re travelling alone – it’ll be like a single bed or a sofa. Stacking the beds this way also creates more room for chilling out with your book or your travel buddy – although you may well be outside taking advantage of the open firepit and gas cooking facilities that have been provided (sunset meals and stargazing, anyone?)
These off-grid pods have plenty of features, including drinking water on tap and access to well-maintained washing-up facilities, flushing toilets and hot showers. There’s firewood available for an additional cost, but please bring any fire lighting equipment, a powerful torch, cutlery, cooking utensils, pans and towels with you.
When you’re in search of other sustenance, tasty food and a warm atmosphere can be tracked down at the pub in Marshbrook (15 minutes’ walk) or the two pubs in Little Stretton (half an hour). The market town of Church Stretton (five minutes’ drive) has cafés, a supermarket and more dining out options.

From this central Shropshire spot, it’s not tricky to track down attractions from Minton Hill Pods. Take in the countryside from a steam railway, like in the old days, by joining the Severn Valley Railway from its Bridgnorth station (40 minutes’ drive). Then, march on towards Stokesay Castle (25 minutes), where one of the richest men in England lived in the 13th century.
Museums can be tracked down in Ironbridge (40 minutes), medieval Powis Castle (50 minutes) or the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre (10 minutes). As for peaceful sightseeing and pottering around, Ludlow (25 minutes) and Shrewsbury (35 minutes) are excellent contenders for such activities.
When you’re not out biking or hiking the Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd, there’s also a popular single-track cycling trail through Minton Batch (around 15 minutes’ cycle).
