Weston Pools Village: Fishing lake

General

  • Peaceful Shropshire site with five coarse fishing pools
  • Within an hour of outdoor activities in Snowdonia and Shropshire Hills
  • Clubhouse bar and food; heated bathrooms; five minutes from Oswestry

Ooh, this place is an Eden for anglers… a peaceful, tree-lined patch of the Shropshire countryside with five pools for coarse fishing, designed and built by the proprietor who, as you might imagine, is pretty keen on the sport himself.

A five-minute drive from Oswestry, Weston Pools Village is a green and well-tended site, whose ponds for match and pleasure angling are stuffed with carp, barbel, tench and bream.

It can get chilly out there contemplating the waters, but that can soon be remedied thanks to the heated washrooms with piping hot showers. There’s also a cheery clubhouse with a bar and fresh hot food served on Friday afternoons and for Sunday lunch, and further eating and supping options a short distance away in Oswestry. Barbecues are allowed on site.

If by chance there should be a few hours when you’re not landing 20-pound monsters on the pools, there’s grand stuff to get up to in the surrounding area. Start in Oswestry with wanders round the town and Cambrian Railway museums and walks to Oswald’s Well, where legends say the limbs of the eighth-century King Oswald were dropped by a raven. 'Tis a myth, but you may have heard fisherfolk telling bigger whoppers…

    Seems to be a haven for workmen who made alot of drunken shouting and swearing at 1.30 am.My husband went for a shower and said they were filthy.The ladies was slightly better, think they need more checks once a day not enough.I was glad that we were only staying 2 nights and I couldn't wait to leave.We definitely won't stay here again as feel it was the worst caravan park I've been to.

From the manager...

What a lovely way to describe someone’s business who has also been closed for nearly a year and starting to build once again very thoughtful!

We are based on a fishery and lucky enough to be sold out most weekends so the workmen you describe are actually fishermen enjoying their holiday and are usually very respectful of other holiday makers.

Our facilities are checked on a regular basis and cleaned thoroughly once a day or more if needed.

It’s a shame you didn’t see the fabulous clubhouse on site or enjoy the walks around the fishery and site that others do.

Local attractions

Heading here for hikes in the hills? It’s 50 minutes’ drive to the heath-covered slopes and waterfalls of Carding Mill Valley in the Shropshire Hills and to walk the nature-filled ridge of Wenlock Edge. Quad biking, zipwires and clay pigeon shooting are all available at the adventure centre.

To get active on the water, Lake Bala beckons an hour away with canoeing, kayaking and windsurfing, alternatively you could stay on land with a mountain bike trip through the Snowdonia hills or take things easy on a time-travelling steam train trip.

For further time travel, there’s a trio of castles nearby: 12th-century Whittington Castle is 10 minutes' drive away, while Chirk and Powys Castles can be perused within a half-hour trip. Don’t miss a flit round Hawkstone Park Follies either (45 minutes), a madcap estate of statues and grottoes amid cliffs and crags and thick forests.

Smaller companions will be smiling all day at Park Hall Farm (20 minutes), where pig racing and lamb feeding meet zipwires, adventure playgrounds and go-karts. And there’s surely no-one who can’t love a canal boat ride from Llangollen… to find out why, get out onto the water half an hour from base.

Must see

  • Powis Castle & Garden (14.1 miles)
  • Chester Castle (24.6 miles)
  • Cheshire Military Museum (24.6 miles)

National Trust
