- Small and friendly meadow site near the Shropshire Hills
- Within 10 minutes' walk of Much Wenlock
- Campfires allowed: logs and kindling available on site
Good times for all ages can be anticipated at Withies Campsite near Wenlock Edge in Shropshire: if you want a peaceful and relaxed setting with stacks of space for the kids to let off steam, this family-friendly place will tick all your holiday boxes.
The big draw here is the friendly vibe from amiable owners and seasoned campers Claire and Carol, who'll be seen on site keeping everything shipshape (and sorting out logs and kindling for your evening campfire). The shower cabin has hot showers and well-maintained toilet facilities kept to sparkling standards.
Other topping factors are the big and safe natural area for kids to run around in away from the main site, and the closeness of Withies to activities of all sorts, including hikes around the Shropshire Hills, industrious visits to Ironbridge and its museums, and mooching around Shrewsbury, under half an hour's drive away.
Withies is set in six acres of grassy meadow on Wenlock Edge near the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It's a 10-minute walk to the historic market town of Much Wenlock and its visitor centre, traditional shops and a satisfying selection of pubs and restaurants.

From the Much Wenlock direction, take the B4371 towards Church Stretton, pass the Wenlock Edge car park on the right, continue uphill for approximately 100 metres, and then you'll find The Withies Campsite on the right just over the brow of the hill.
From the Church Stretton direction, take the B4371 towards Much Wenlock; before you reach Much Wenlock, you'll pass a couple of company signs on your left – Lime Green, then Grange Fencing. As you drive down the hill look out to the left for The Withies Campsite. (If you reach the Wenlock Edge car park you've gone too far.)
Withies Campsite is in prime position for Shropshire's country, town and historic attractions, from its setting near the Shropshire Hills and within walking distance of town. Much Wenlock is between Shrewsbury and Bridgnorth, with the Ironbridge Gorge and the town of Telford to the north-east.
Within a few minutes' walk is the limestone escarpment of Wenlock Edge, a Site of Special Scientific Interest running for over 19 miles between Craven Arms and Much Wenlock. It includes the marked trail of the Shropshire Way, the bridle path of the Jack Mytton Way, and eccentric structures like the tower Flounder's Folly, which many walks around the area pass.
The Ironbridge Gorge Museums should entice even the most reluctant of small Shropshire holidaymakers: this UNESCO World Heritage Site has 10 museums telling the tale of Britain's Industrial Revolution, including the Blists Hill Victorian Town and Enginuity, an interactive design and technology centre with shows and workshops.
Also make time for a trip on the spectacular Severn Valley Railway, on its 16-mile route through the Severn valley and along the River Severn for much of the way. The track runs from Bridgnorth to Kidderminster; alight nearby at Ironbridge Level Crossing, or nine miles from Withie at Bridgnorth.
County capital Shrewsbury is 13 miles away, and the market town of Ludlow within 23.
