Bank Farm Caravan Park: General views

General

  • Small family-run caravan park on a farm close to the Welsh border
  • A 25-minute drive from Shrewsbury and 45 minutes from Ironbridge
  • Jacuzzi, play area, snooker, games room and fishing available on site

It’s all about the chilled-out times at Bank Farm Caravan Park, a small, family-run site on a farm just next to the Welsh border. At the foot of the Breiddens with Wales on one side and Shropshire on the other, this site looks to the south, meaning morning views are filled up with valleys and mountains. Of course, you’ll also have your pick of attractions on either side, from Powis Castle and Garden (20 minutes’ drive) to Shrewsbury (25 minutes) and Ironbridge (45 minutes).

Now for your neighbours… Bank Farm is a small working farm with sheep and cattle, where the family has added their tender touch to the site for well over 80 years, resulting in a reel of activities. So, you might want to make the most of the play area, games room, football pitch and snooker room (this last one’s for adults only).

For a proper pamper session, you might want to head to the jacuzzi after an amble around the local woodlands – these trees are packed with wildlife and the occasional wild deer roaming through, so you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled. And for some downtime by the water, there’s also fishing on site.

When it comes to the basic stuff, the facilities have got it under control. There are two utility blocks on site, one with a specific family room, and there’s a laundry room for you to tend to any grubby clothes.

    The owners were absolutely wonderful. Helped us get our caravan level and set up. We’ve toured for years and I have to say the owners we’re so very friendly. Always around if you needed anything. Toilet block was immaculate. Beautiful spot. Close to Montgomery and bishops castle. Lovely play area if you have younger children. But also a nice quiet site. Would most definitely recommend. Definitely be returning.wonderful stay.

Local attractions

Back to the older ages… there’s many a trip far, far down memory lane around here, beginning with Powis Castle and Garden (20 minutes’ drive). This National Trust castle and country house hark all the way back to medieval times. Fast forward a fair few years and there’s a Tudor centre, museums and the home of Charles Darwin in Shrewsbury (25 minutes) or the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway (25 minutes) for an old-school steam train trip.

For an open-air museum experience, the UNESCO World Heritage Site at Ironbridge (45 minutes) will send you through everything from gorges to Victorian towns and over the world’s first cast-iron bridge.

But, how about mucking into farm life headfirst too? There are four museums including world war trenches, a Victorian school and an Iron Age Roundhouse to bring to life the past at Park Hall The Countryside Experience (35 minutes), as well as farm animal activities and play areas.

Where else to look to? Well, there’s the walled cathedral city of Chester (an hour and 10 minutes) or the Welsh coast (an hour and a half), and Lake Vyrnwy (50 minutes) is a good shot for scenic shooting, mountain biking and horse riding sessions, or watersports.

Must see

  • Powis Castle & Garden (6.0 miles)
  • Stokesay Castle (20.8 miles)
  • Much Wenlock Priory (21.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Carding Mill Valley and the Shropshire Hills (14.2 miles)
  • Attingham Park Estate: Cronkhill (15.1 miles)
