General

  • Family-run site in peaceful rural Shropshire, with firepit hire
  • Close to the Montgomery canal and two miles from Oswestry
  • Within walking distance of pubs serving food; buy eggs on site

Guest after guest takes time out of their day to praise the friendly owners in reviews of Fairhaven Camping and Glamping – that’s got to be a great start, surely?

But that’s not all this family-run Shropshire site has going for it, as the location’s likely to be a winner too: it’s in the village of Maesbury, just outside Oswestry, with walks and bike rides directly outside the gates. Local strolls might take you to traditional pubs for homemade food, or to the nearby Montgomery canal for waterside walks, rides on a horse-drawn barge or a stopoff at the canal’s central café for a scone smothered in cream.

Heading further afield? The speedy A483 is a mile away for easy travels, but if you’re leaving the car behind you can flag down a bus just outside the site for jaunts into Oswestry and Shrewsbury.

Time spent on site should be pretty peaceful – the park stretches out over four acres of quiet green space, with plenty of space to spread out, set up a barbecue or light up a campfire. Firepits can be hired here, and there’s firewood for sale too.

Amenities include two toilets, two showers, two wash basins, a washing-up area with hot water, drinking water, chemical waste disposal, waste water disposal and use of a fridge. A chemical toilet and toilet tent are available to hire.

One last thing that’s won a fair amount of fans? The chickens and ducks that live on site, waiting to be fed by visiting kids and providing eggs for sale in return.

    They were very welcoming and friendly my little boy loved the chickens and ducks and when he got to feed them he was over the moon. Close to the local town so plenty to see and do, great for first time campers and everything is so close. The facilities are some of the cleanest I've ever seen.

Local attractions

Getting a fix of rural life is pretty simple around here: take your rod over to Weston Pools Fishery (two minutes’ drive) for a day by the water or make friends with farmyard animals at Park Hall The Countryside Experience (10 minutes). If you time your stay right you might also be able to catch an event at the Oswestry & District Agricultural Society showground (10 minutes).

Fancy a hit of history with that? Try Whittington Castle (10 minutes), which often stages goings-on like medieval days and ghost tours, or take an inside/outside stroll around Chirk Castle and its gorgeous gardens (20 minutes). If your tastes veer more towards the 21st century, check out the creations at the British Ironwork Centre (five minutes) or check out the shops at Cae Glas Park (five minutes) and in Shrewsbury (half an hour).

Folk who just want to get out for a walk should set their sights on Wat’s Dyke Way (five minutes away), take a waterside wander at The Mere (20 minutes) or nip over the border into Wales to stroll along the shores of Lake Vyrnwy (45 minutes).
