The Old School Campsite: The glamping

General

  • Well-maintained and family-run site in the Shropshire Hills
  • Close to the Welsh border and 35 minutes' drive from Shrewsbury
  • Outdoor activity and crafts centre on site

It might be old-school, but there's nothing too basic about The Old School Campsite in Shropshire, a family-friendly site 40 minutes’ drive from Shrewsbury where hiking the hills, strolling the scenic countryside and canoeing the Severn are all a cinch.

The site’s close to the Welsh border and on the edge of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so expect lengthy walks through pretty hills and dales as well as splendid views all around.... and plenty of peace and quiet next to firepits in green fields, setting the barbecue smouldering for dinner and taking in the starry night sky.

By day, stroll over to the site’s activity centre for a host of arts and crafts workshops: guests can embrace their artistic sides with silver jewellery, felt, knitting, enamelling or batik workshops on site, to wrap up stays with handmade souvenirs to boast about back home.

If that sounds too laidback, spend time at the activity centre chatting to owners Rachel and Stuart instead. They’ll help guests to organise rock climbing days, paddleboard lessons, canoeing trips on the Severn and the Montgomery Canal, and mountain biking excursions on the trails nearby – or venture out solo on wanders along the long-distance Shropshire Way, which passes within minutes of the site.
