  • Small, friendly and peaceful site with a dedicated adults-only area
  • Less than ten minutes from Shrewsbury
  • Shop selling bacon, sausages, eggs and homegrown and local produce

Heritage hunters, serenity seekers, hikers, wildlife watchers and fans of all things Roman (and wine) … cart yourself off to this small, peaceful and secluded Shropshire site for all the above and a fair bit more, at a friendly rural base less than ten minutes from the medieval market town and 600+ listed buildings of Shrewsbury.

As well as its locale five miles from the Shropshire capital, Cartref Camping and Caravan Site is also a few minutes' drive from the famed industrial setting and UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, and a short drive from Wroxeter Roman City and its adjoining Roman vineyard.

It's in the Shropshire Hills with several walks and bike rides easily reached, such as Offa's Dyke Path passing between Shrewsbury and nearby Welshpool; the Marches Way, also passing Shrewsbury on its way from Cheddar to Chepstow, and lake-based wanders around the glacial waters of Ellesmere.

The amiable Cartref owners have named the site after the Welsh word for 'home', as the mission on site is for all ages to feel relaxed and comfy, whether they're Crusoe-style campers or out on their first trepid trip with a new tent or caravan. Within the site's five-acre field is a dedicated area for adults only, a dog walk and a small play park including football nets where kids can also ride their bikes. There's also a small bar selling local ales, Shropshire lager and Shropshire gin along with wines and spirits.

The immaculate amenities include a toilet and shower block with access for disabled guests, baby changing facilities, a washing-up area and a laundry.

Cartfef also has a shop, selling local fresh produce including bacon and sausages, eggs from the resident hens, and various homegrown and local produce.
