General

  • Small peaceful site with vintage English vibe
  • A 20-minute drive from the Meres and 45 minutes from Wenlock Edge
  • Vintage bikes for hire; afternoon teas and barbecues allowed

Fancy a vintage voyage? Then pull on your gaiters, set your pipe firmly between your teeth and pedal off towards Abbey Green Farm, a peaceful site in the unchanging Shropshire countryside: they’ll even rent you a 1940s bicycle so you can explore it in proper style.

Adding to the stillness, the well-tended and classically English gardens attract a variety of birds and insects to the site: how about taking it all in over afternoon tea, served on the farm terrace surrounded by Shropshire countryside...?

Other foodie options include breakfasts or bacon and egg rolls for guests every morning, and the opportunity to buy luxury hampers full of tasty treats. If you have an urge for DIY dining, barbecues are allowed on site and there are shops and supermarkets in nearby Wem and Whitchurch, 10 and 20 minutes’ drive away. Alternatively, get your best tweed knickerbockers on and cycle the two miles to the Bull and Dog pub for local ales and hot fresh food.

Fabulous small family run site in the countryside.14/06/2021

  • Electric grass touring caravan pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Lovely small site for my first caravan outing. Great location for day tips to interesting places close by, ideally situated for local walks, cycling, canals, and pubs not too far away too. The owners have worked very hard to make this a very welcoming and pretty site and are swift to reply to queries ahead of arrival. They have cream teas, breakfast baps and home made pizza's available for delivery right to your pitch, cycles for hire, pretty good Wi-Fi - and the toilet block is very clean with washing up facilities too. I would definatley return here (especially for the friendly farm cats) and would strongly recommend you give them a go!

Local attractions

Whixall Nature Reserve a 20-minute drive away is one of the last few lowland raised bogs left in the British Isles and as such it’s home to a menagerie of birdlife along with some rather prehistoric sights, such as carnivorous sundew, adders (wear your boots) and six-inch water-skating raft spiders.

The nearby Meres, lakes and wetlands formed at the end of the Ice Age are all between 20 and 25 minutes away and make for fine walks and nature spotting: birdwatchers come from all over the country to Wood Lane Nature Reserve, next to Ellesmere to spot avocets, lapwings and sandpipers.

For bigger walks and climbs, it’s 45 minutes to Wenlock Edge, where you can also add a spot of Segway, quad biking and zipwire traversing to your hiking itinerary, and around an hour to the Shropshire Hills' Carding Mill Valley, for yomps up heather-blanketed slopes, waterfalls and views towards the Black Mountains.

Alternatively, report to Llangollen (45 minutes) for rides on the steam railway and down the canal, and it's a similar distance to walk the ‘stream in the sky’, otherwise known as the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. If you’re more into country piles, visit the eccentric tangle of statues, grottoes, bridges and tunnels created by various owners of Hawkstone Park Follies (15 minutes), or wander the 640 acres of country surrounding 18th-century Attingham Park, dotted with Iron Age and Roman ruins, half an hour away.

Must see

  • Darby Houses (Ironbridge) (20.1 miles)
  • Blists Hill Victorian Town (20.4 miles)
  • Ironbridge Gorge Museums (20.9 miles)

National Trust

  • Attingham Park (14.8 miles)
  • Chirk Castle (15.1 miles)
