Underhill Farm is a peaceful camping spot nestled under the impressive Llanymynech rocks and bordering the wonderful nature reserve. At the same time it is in a very easily accessible location on the Wales-England border, with only a short walk to the village shop and the pub. It is also easily accessible by public transport.
The site is managed for wildlife and to provide lots of opportunities for exploration and adventure. We don't have many pitches so that everyone staying can enjoy the wild edges without camping in each others pockets. We have a communal fire pit and can dig personal fire pits next to tents on request.
We have basic toilet and shower facilities, an indoor area for wet weather and plenty of games for hire. We also run informal activities such as pottery, story-telling, guided walks and canoeing for those staying with us.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

We are just off of the A483 which runs through both Oswestry (north of us) and Welshpool (south of us).
From the south we are the first left turn (Underhill Lane) after you have climbed the steep hill out of Llanymynech, just before the big yellow 30/speed camera/Pant sign. From the North we are the second right after the cross guns pub, if you start going downhill then you have gone too far!
Once you are on Underhill Lane the road bends to the left and then the right and we are the second left with the Underhill Farm sign outside. If you end up in the Llanymynech rocks wildlife trust car park just turn around and take the first right.
By public transport, the nearest train stations are Gobowen (Oswestry) and Welshpool from which you would need to get buses. The X71 and the 72 regularly go from Oswestry to Pant and the X71 and X75 go from Welshpool to Pant.
Alternatively you can get the X74 bus from Shrewsbury to Llanymynech and walk either up the road, alng the canal or through the nature reserve to get to the farm.
