General

  • Small and friendly tents-only site among spectacular scenery
  • 200 yards from the Shropshire Way
  • Campfires allowed: wood for sale on site or bring your own

After some new walking inspo? If you’re bored of covering the same old trails, nip off to The Nipstone Campsite, 15 minutes' drive from Minsterley – strolls on scenic Shropshire routes are very much the order of the day here.

This dog- and family-friendly site has spectacular views of the Shropshire countryside in all directions, so if you’re up for exploring the area on foot, this is a fine place to do it. It’s located 200 yards from the Shropshire Way Main Route, a long-distance path covering around 200 miles; if that sounds a tad ambitious, stick to the five-and-a-half-mile circular walk on the stunning Stiperstones ridge, and get a look at the Nipstone Rocks while you’re at it.

Bit of history? The Bog Visitor Centre is 700 metres from the site, so grab the kids (and the dog, who is also welcome) and head over to the old school house, one of a few remaining buildings from The Bog Village, which was demolished in 1972. Insights into its mining history, people and wildlife can be followed up by tucking into the tea and homemade cake available at the centre.

For more extensive eats, a shop and pub are a couple of miles away from the site, and a few more are dotted around Minsterley. You might also like to have a crack at campfire cookery – blazes are permitted, either using firewood bought on site or bringing your own.

This is a back-to-basics site, so facilities simply stretch to toilets and hot and cold running water.

Please note

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

Single-sex bookings of 6 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Would recommend buying fire logs from the shop next to the stiperstone pub as there was a "shortage" of logs on site and we we're left freezing cold.

    Small campsite in a great location run by very friendly owners who were kind enough to let our children "help" with the sheep and chickens on their smallholding.

    There are some fabulous walks in the vicinity that are equally stunning in rain or sunshine. Highly recommended

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Whether you plan on walking near or far, there's plenty to see (in fact, even if you don’t leave the site you’ll still benefit from endless views of the countryside). Local walking trails of various lengths take in hills, forests and little villages (and perhaps a pub or two along the way…) and there are plenty of options for pedalling bikes too. Like to head out on horseback? Kids' pony treks and hacks for grownups can be had at Long Mountain Centre (20 minutes' drive).

The area isn’t shy of castles, so get some ticked off while you’re here – the National Trust’s Powis Castle and Garden is around a half an hour drive away and Stokesay Castle is about 35 minutes.

Shrewsbury can be reached by car in around 35 minutes, opening up a mixed bag of attractions. What will it be… a tour of Shrewsbury prison for an insight into life behind bars, a visit to a falconry to see a variety of birds of prey, or the Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery for a culture kick?

Must see

  • Powis Castle & Garden (10.3 miles)
  • Stokesay Castle (10.9 miles)
  • Much Wenlock Priory (16.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Carding Mill Valley and the Shropshire Hills (5.7 miles)
