- Paths lead from the farm to Jack Mytton Way on Wenlock Edge
The Coates Farm is a small no-frills site next to a stream, in the grounds of a farm in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The farm, which grows wheat and barley as well as keeping cows and sheep, is five miles from Church Stretton and seven miles from Much Wenlock.
The hills around this area were known in Victorian times as 'Little Switzerland', and it's still a popular area for walkers now. Three footpaths and a bridleway run through the farm and up onto the slopes of Wenlock Edge, allowing walkers, cyclists and horse riders to join the main path known as Jack Mytton Way.
For eating, there's a country pub a mile from the site and several more within a short drive. More restaurants, cafés, pubs and a supermarket can be found in Church Stretton. The small town of Ludlow, 12 miles away, has become known as a foodie mecca in recent years and is now home to all sorts of businesses from Michelin-rated restaurants to family-run delis.
Guest facilities at the farm include a tennis court, picnic benches and firebowls.
Among the other amenities are recycling bins, a cold water tap and washing-up area. The toilet and shower are next to the farmhouse, a short walk from the camping field.
Open from 30/03/2018 to 31/10/2018
Bookings must not be for more than 14 consecutive nights.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
