The Shepherd's Loft: Touring caravan pitch

General

  • Peaceful Shropshire farm park with views of Lodge Hill and The Wrekin
  • A 15-minute drive to Church Stretton; 25 to Shrewsbury
  • On-site half-acre fishing lake; fresh eggs available

Get set for proper peace and quiet in Shropshire at this fab farm park with views over Lodge Hill and The Wrekin.

The Shepherd's Loft is a pretty Shropshire park on a traditional family-run farm in the tiny village of Frodesley. With easy access from the road, dark night skies for stargazing and freshly-laid eggs for sale at the top of the drive, it's a place where you can get back to life's simple pleasures and explore the very best of the Shropshire countryside.

Guests here can look forward to good on-site facilities, including well-maintained toilets, showers and a chemical disposal point. Handily, The Shepherd's Loft is also a five-minute drive from a local farm shop on the A49, while those searching for a supermarket will find Shrewsbury (25 minutes’ drive) has plenty to offer in that department.

How to fill your days? Bring a rod to try the fishing pond on site, take a two-hour circular walk from the site or set off for more hikes in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. For culinary treats, you might also like to head to the foodie town of Ludlow (35 minutes).

    Very well laid out site, with fantastic views.
    Excellent app to download which provided all the information about the site and the area you could need.
    Very friendly welcome from the owners.
    The local pub will actually pick you up, and then bring you back to the site after your meal.

    One of the nicest sites we have stayed at, and the South Shropshire hills are fabulous.

Local attractions

Once you’ve warmed up on the local footpaths, set off for longer strolls in the Shropshire Hills, perhaps starting from the walkers’ mecca Church Stretton (15 minutes’ drive) at the foot of the Long Mynd. Caer Caradoc (10 minutes) and the Wrekin (half an hour) are close by if you’d rather tackle a mountain or two. Quad biking, horse riding and River Severn canoe trips are all possible too if you don’t mind a drive of 45 minutes or so.

​For a bit of local history, start with Acton Burnell Castle (five minutes), the seat of the first Parliament in 1283, then move on to Wroxeter (15 minutes) to explore the Roman City and then take a tour and tasting at the vineyard next door. You could also embark on a Charles Darwin-themed tour of Shrewsbury (25 minutes).

Ironbridge (25 minutes) is another fine place for a glimpse into the past, as is the lovely National Trust estate Attingham Park (20 minutes). Or try the Telford Steam Railway (25 minutes) for a special day out.

Must see

  • Much Wenlock Priory (10.4 kilometres)
  • Enginuity (14.9 kilometres)
