General

  • Family-run site in a peaceful rural location, with firepit hire
  • Close to the Montgomery canal and two miles from Oswestry
  • Within walking distance of pubs serving food; buy eggs on site

Fairhaven Camping and Glamping is a family-friendly and family-run site in the rural Shropshire village of Maesbury, just outside Oswestry and a mile from the A483. It covers four acres of quiet green space, with plenty of space to spread out, set up a barbecue or fire up a campfire. Walks and bike rides lead directly from the site.

Local strolls include to the nearby traditional pubs for some homemade food, or to the nearby Montgomery canal for waterside walks, wildlife spotting and a stopoff at the canal’s central café for a scone and cream or to book a trip on the horse-drawn barge. If you’re leaving the car behind for the duration, a bus service from outside the site travels into Oswestry and Shrewsbury.

Amenities include two toilets, two showers, two wash basins, a washing-up area with hot water, drinking water, chemical waste disposal, waste water disposal and use of a fridge. A chemical toilet and toilet tent are available to hire.

The site hires out firepits and sells firewood; guests can also buy eggs laid by the Fairhaven chickens and ducks.

    Friendly welcome from the owner. Clean toilet facilities. The location was fab, the local walks are beautiful.

    Disliked: 

    only two toilets but they were super clean. It was really quiet when we were there but can imagine that at busy times the two toilets would be a killer as the showers are in there too.

  • Liked: 

    Loved everything about this little break. Carrie was so welcoming at check in and showed us around the site. During our stay nothing was too much trouble. The bell tent was lovely and spotlessly clean. Loved the little sign welcoming us to the site. The kids absolutely loved it and loved the ducks and hens. Everything you needed were there and the toilets and the showers were spotlessly clean. Will definitely be booking to go back.

    Everything! Very peaceful and well kept site, friendly and helpful owners, clean warm showers, campfires for hire, lots and lots of space. We were a group of six adults and eight young children and we had a really great few days here.

    Disliked: 

    Only thing is the site really needs one or two toilets that are separate from the showers. We had to wait for some time to use the toilets a couple on a couple of occasions which is very tricky for young children.

  • Willowdene shepherd's hut
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Loved our hut that we stayed in. Loved that we had our own private shower and toilet, Liked the atmosphere on the site. Liked the little touches that the owner had thought about. Good location, easy to access local shops and amenities. Shrewsbury and Oswestry not far by car.

    Disliked: 

    Might have been a bit strict with the owner patrolling the site at night a few times. I understand there should be rules but no need to be too strict with it. Water was a bit cold. At first they didn’t seem so keen that we had a baby with us. We didn’t mention he was coming as we weren’t going to pay extra for a child who wasn’t even 3 months old and we knew his crib would fit in the accommodation.
