- Scenic family site with spectacular views of the Shropshire Hills
- A half-hour drive from Ironbridge, Hoo Farm and Telford Steam Railway
- Ramblers' paradise: climb the Wrekin within half an hour’s drive
Fancy quiet hols in pretty and peaceful Shropshire countryside? Tiptoe along to Abdo Hill Farm, a family-friendly site less than 10 minutes’ drive from Shropshire's Market Drayton.
This is outdoor holidaymaking without too many bells and whistles… facilities like toilet blocks, waste disposal and barbecue disposal are all in place, but there’s nothing else to distract from unwinding days of playing with the kids or taking a walk with the family’s four-legged companion.
There are plenty of walks to inspire waggy tails and happy humans hereabouts though, starting with a stroll along Shropshire Union Canal (which passes about five minutes away) before travelling on half an hour to Ercall Wood, where an eight-mile loop that climbs the Wrekin starts. Do try to make it all the way to the top too, as it’s said one can see five counties from the peak on a clear day…
It can be a challenging climb, so make sure to load up on fresh eggs and home-cured bacon (available on site) before the attempt, and plan to self-reward with some pub food and pints at the nearby inn less than five minutes from base, once the path circles back to terra firma.

Start nearby explores with an immediate trip into Market Drayton, 10 minutes’ drive from the site: there are plenty of small independent shops and restaurants to try out, indoor and outdoor pools to plunge into, and a local brewery where tours are a must. The market town was the one-time home of gingerbread too, so make sure to sample the wares, liberally…
See more of the Shropshire countryside by heading next to Norbury Junction 20 minutes away, where the canal’s barges are moored and where there’s a narrowboat that visitors can catch for slow-paced puttering along the waterways.
This is a particularly stellar part of the country for delving into the past too: history buffs can have their pick from stately homes, National Trust sites and the tar tunnel, china museum and Victorian village of Ironbridge Gorge, all within about half an hour, and the famed Hawkestone Park Follies are 10 minutes from base.
Ease the rest of the family into the right frame of mind with jaunts on the Woodseaves Miniature Railway (five minutes away) and the Telford Steam Railway half an hour from the site, or opt instead for some time among the animals – Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom is 25 minutes from home base and Trentham Monkey Factory is a little under 40 minutes away.
