Irongorge Camping: Rainbow over the field

General

  • Telford site within a mile of Ironbridge
  • Campfires allowed using upcycled washing machine drum pits
  • Modern toilet block; logs and barbecue coals delivered to your pitch

If you've ever had a steely determination to visit UNESCO World Heritage Site Ironbridge, this is the very site for you in Irongorge Camping near Telford.

As the name might hint, this site is very close indeed to the world famous birthplace of the Industrial Revolution – the exploits of Mr Brunel et al are only a mile away – so forge your way here forthwith for a heritage hol that should be just tickety boo.

Active options are around too if that's also your tickety boo thing: you might quite fancy riverside strolls, riverbank fishing, river surface boating and canoeing (there's a pattern developing here...) and, on land, possibly racing around on mountain bikes or hiking up hills or the Severn Gorge. And visiting the many excellent pubs around; peeps on hol should also/always fancy those.

Amenities of shower and toilet block and washing-up area are smartly up to date and kept to good standards by owners Claire and James. Campfires and barbecues are allowed on site: if you need to buy dry logs or barbecue coals they can most conveniently be delivered to your pitch.

And, what might possibly become your fave feature of this industrious little site, the ready made 'fire bowls' are actually cleverly upcycled washing machine drums, which you can fill with fire for your evening stews. Mr Brunel would have approved....

Please note

No cars/motorcycles at the site. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

The campground/park does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dog Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Absolutely amazing, a clean and very well maintained campsite with a little park. The campsite owners were friendly. We appreciated the free WiFi, fire pits/bbqs and wood packs available to purchase on the site at a reasonable price. There’s lots to do in the area, multiple iron bridge museums )we used the family plus pass for access to all and discounts on sites) wonderland and the exotic zoo, plus lots of nice walks. We stayed in the shack, it was clean and very comfortable, in fact so much so that we all slept in every morning. Sheets and pillows were provided for the double bed. But not for the beds for the children, luckily we brought sleeping bags for them So this wasn’t an issue. But it may be useful to with provide them as well if the booking is for multiple people or specify to bring sheets and pillows for the single beds. We were tempted to add a few more days onto our stay as we enjoyed it so much, but our son is due to start school again tomorrow.

    Very warm welcome from James on arrival. Site is small, very clean and nicely situated just above Ironbridge. Toilets and showers (free) are very clean and there is plenty of hot water. Maybe a little wait at busy times (there are two showers/toilets in the male block), but this wasn't an issue for us. Firepits (made from recycled washing machine drums) are excellent free addition and the logs available for a small fee are dried enough to burn easily and nicely. Very laid back site with families all enjoying the play space in the centre of the main field. There is no on-site shop or other facilities, but Ironbridge is five mins away (Co-Op). Local pubs are very good, plenty of good food and beers. Wifi is OK - can be a bit slow when lots of people logged on. Good walks and a really nice (small) exotic zoo park ten mins drive away which was a nice morning out. Plenty to do and see in the area within 30 mins drive max. Lovely stay here; we will return. Thank you James!

Local attractions

It's a slight porkie to state with firm authority that the Industrial Revolution started exactly at Ironbridge Gorge on one particular day, for of course as your teachers will have told you, it was a gradual process happening all over the shop over a longer period of time. That said, the 10 museums of the Ironbridge site are the definitive Industrial Revolution attraction in the land, visited tirelessly by over half a million people every year.

Five of the 10 museums are within a mile of Irongorge Camping, including award-winning Enginuity which should spark the kids' interest right up with its interactive exhibits and hands-on activities; get them to try pulling a locomotive by hand or test their speedy reactions against the Enginuity lighting-fast robot.

About 10 minutes' drive from Irongorge Camping will see you back in time at Blists Hill Victorian Town, another Ironbridge Gorge museum and an award-winning ingenuity where visitors can experience life as it was in Victorian times including Victorian shops, cottages and schools. If the kids play up, tell them about Victorian child labour and chimney climbing too...

Elsewhere in the area, Irongorge Camping has views over Wrekin Hill with easy access to it for those who fancy a walk, climb or a slack sit at the summit with a picnic, a beer and a book.

Must see

  • Blists Hill Victorian Town (0.5 kilometres)
  • Darby Houses (Ironbridge) (0.6 kilometres)
  • Ironbridge Gorge Museums (1.0 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Sunnycroft (6.5 kilometres)
  • Attingham Park (12.4 kilometres)

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
