General

  • Working farm campsite at the foot of Wenlock Edge
  • Miles of National Trust and wildlife walks from the site entrance
  • Coarse fishing pools, free wifi and home-produced farm meats available

250 acres of Shropshire countryside, spectacular views from the Stretton Hills to the Wrekin, miles of walks straight from the site, and all a smooth 10 minutes’ drive from Ironbridge Gorge and 20 from Shrewsbury: location lovers should very much like Lower Hill Camp Site.

Family-run by Rita and her team, friendly and popular Lower Hill Camp is a working farm with a menagerie of animals to see (and a good selection of sausages and burgers to buy for the firepit or barbie) and plenty more wild animals including deer and badgers in the surrounding countryside. Miles of National Trust and wildlife walks start from the site entrance; if you’re a type who goes the distance, the Severn Way is within easy reach.

The farm has coarse fishing pools available for guests: the campsite pool by the farmhouse, and the wood pool at the lower end of the site, suitable for more earnest anglers and stocked with large carp, bream, tench, roach, gudgeon, barbel and perch.

Farm facilities include toilets, showers with hot water, free wifi and ice pack freezing.

Lovely and peaceful, Children had lots of fun. 18/06/2018

  • Woodpecker camping pod
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Everything!! Very peaceful, clean, Rita (the owner) her Mum and her staff were lovely.
    First time in a pod - we usually camp, but didn't fancy pitching a large tent just for a weekend. The pod was great, seemed very new, very clean, bed was was comfortable and it was very warm.
    The children loved the rope swing and playing in the woods at the back of our pod.

    Disliked: 

    Not a problem for us but if you have limited mobility our pod was at the top of a steep bank, so you may want to ask for one lower down if you think you would struggle.

    Fantastic weekend staying in one of the yurts. The kids (age 6 and 4) loved it, as did the dog! Even with a little bit of rain, there was plenty of room inside for us to play board games! Looking forward to returning again!
