General

  • Back to basics wild camping on a 32-acre Shropshire Hills farm
  • In the hamlet of Meadowtown; Shrewsbury town centre 35 minutes' drive
  • Dog-friendly campsite; barbecues and campfires welcome

Speed through the Shropshire Hills by bike or bide your time and explore the network of peaceful paths at Meadowtown Farm, a back to basics campsite set on a 32-acre site in the west of the county.

Set on top of gently sloping hills, the views here are exceptional and stretch for miles around. In the evening, sunsets light up the sky, followed (on cloudless nights) by pitch-black skies full of stars… So turn your phone off, go without the internet and return to nature at its best. (Do bring a torch, though, as it tends to get very dark around these parts at night).

This spacious site is dog-friendly, allows barbecues and welcomes campfires in suitable parts of its grounds. It's located in the hamlet of Meadowtown, a rural spot roughly 15 minutes' drive from the Welsh border and 35 minutes from Shrewsbury town centre. Handily, the nearest pub is a quick 10-minute drive down the road. Further locally sourced food supplies can be picked up at a farm shop 10 miles away.

For hill walks, you'll be 15 minutes' drive from the dramatic rocky slopes of the Stiperstones, while cyclists have direct access to a national cycle route at the end of the lane.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

Please note that the toilet facilities are unisex.

    Lovely back to basics site. This was our second stay and we absolutely loved it.

    The view over the Shropshire countryside is stunning and we were able to watch the Buzzards, kites and kestrels fly over the neighbouring fields.

    There was plenty of firewood and bricks available for a camp fire and the port-a loo was kept clean.

    Just a perfect couple of days camping 👍🏻

    Disliked: 

    The grass could maybe do with a mow but that’s just a minor thing

    A big thank you to Noah who is top notch on his quad and escorted us to best position on the hillside. Thank you for allowing our Boreas Camping trailer, as the climb to the site is certainly not for caravans.

    Fantastic view, brícks to make a fire pit, water and basic toilets.

    Incredibly beautiful quiet and unspoilt location. Lovely public footpath leading from the upper side of the campsite. Make sure you are well equipped because there’s nothing around for miles.

    Portaloo
    Entire field was pretty sloping so lots of slipping down the tent during the night.

    Beautiful scenery and very welcoming guests. Great location to go on hikes. It is much more quiet and less crowded than other camping places.

    Disliked: 

    The area is quite sloped and very exposed to the wind, so don’t expect glamming!

Absolute dite The landowners were very lovely and respectful29/08/2022

    Friendly landowners who were respectful of campers but happy to help in a pinch using their own resources to do so! Best view of the night sky and no light pollution. Clean and litter free facilities (ie, toilet, water tap) and field.

    Disliked: 

    It is very hilly and not ideal for those used to flat land camping but we knew that when we chose the site so this isn't really a complaint.

    The hosts, they were warm and welcoming. The gorgeous view, an immaculate portaloo and being provided with firewood and bricks. Also the unlimited space and quietness (only us and two other parties on the whole field).

    Disliked: 

    The only reason it’s 4 out of 5 would be there are no flat areas to pitch up which can’t be helped! And the fact there is literally nothing around which again is a personal preference!

    Remote, peaceful, dog-friendly, incredible views; exactly what I wanted. Meadowtown Farm is down a narrow lane and easily missed (a clearer sign needed on the roadside maybe?) but once there, all good. Friendly, helpful but not obtrusive owners.

    Field 200m or so away from the farmhouse along a rough track. Portaloo, water tap, and bricks and fuel for campfires at the field entrance. The field itself is west-facing and very large. It has a significant slope; the most level pitches are probably against the lower boundary - but my one-woman tent was just about ok at the top. Very big tents may struggle - as may some cars, if the grass is wet.

    Easy access to walks in all directions along a public footpath crossing the field so no need to use the car. The path through the woods behind the field is overgrown but worth the effort because it gives direct access to open hillside and, a few miles south, Mitchell's Fold stone circle.

    Don't come here if you want playgrounds, pubs and pizza ovens! Come for the silence, the sunset - and the brilliant stars at night.

Local attractions

Walks and hikes abound in this western part of Shropshire: you're within easy reach of top-rated spots like the Stiperstones (15 minutes' drive), Offa's Dyke Path (15 minutes) or Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd (40 minutes). For more wild days out, explore nature reserves like The Bog Visitor Centre (10 minutes), hire a canoe to paddle on the River Severn at Ironbridge (45 minutes) or make tracks to Rhayader's Red Kite Feeding Station (an hour and 10 minutes).

Turn to Shrewsbury (35 minutes) when you'd like something a little less rural – Shropshire's county town is full of attractions and activities, from sampling the wares at Britain's oldest working brewery to laidback River Severn cruises aboard the much-loved boat Sabrina. It's also got cinemas, a bowling alley and terrific tours of 18th-century Shrewsbury Prison.

For historic days out, look to Mitchell's Fold Stone Circle (10 minutes) or Wroxeter Roman City (35 minutes) for a slice of the ancient past, or learn more about Shropshire's rich industrial heritage at modern history spots like Ironbridge Gorge (45 minutes), Blists Hill Victorian Town (50 minutes) or Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron (50 minutes).
