Wrekin View Retreat: River View Pitch - lovely and exclusive

General

  • Small-scale Shropshire site in the small village of Walcot
  • A 15-minute drive from Telford and Shrewsbury
  • Laidback site, with dogs, barbecues and campfires allowed

When touring in Shropshire, there are a few places you've got to tick off along the way – Ironbridge Gorge, the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Shrewsbury, the county town, are all sure to be on the list. That's where Wrekin View Retreat comes in – this smashing little spot is within easy reach of all the local sights and, as its name suggests, is just a short distance from The Wrekin, an impressive hill a few minutes' drive from base that makes a great hike.

This spot is very quiet, hosting just a handful of guests at any one time. With private access, secure grounds and a peaceful environment, it makes an appealing proposition for those that like their holidays on the low-key side. It's very laidback too, with dogs, barbecues and campfires all allowed (just use your common sense and follow all instructions from site staff).

The facilities here are simple but well-maintained, with toilets, a wash basin and a well-maintained rustic shower for guests who haven't brought their own amenities. Please note that the only waste disposal available is for dog waste – please take all litter home with you.

Wrekin View Retreat is in the small village of Walcot, just a few minutes' walk from a local pub and a short pedal from scenic National Cycle Route 81.

Please note

No electric barbecues allowed.

Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.

A cable measuring at least 10 metres is needed for the electric hook-ups.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Guests under the age of 16 are not allowed on site.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the campground/park are unlit.

    Warm welcome both before and during our stay from Kate & Ann. All you needed on site with hot shower in a stable & WC facility which were clean and regularly checked. Lovely location in Shropshire with pitch that had a delightful Autumn view of the Wrekin. Will return.

    That the fire pits were left out but still had to pay to use. It just felt wrong.

From the manager...

Hi Jane thanks for your review and was great to have you here.

Regarding the fire pits left out and that you felt wronged by that action, to take in every fire pit after people check out at 11am only to have to bring them back out again at midday when people check in is labour intensive for me and my Mom. I always liaise with every person coming to stay with us at least 24 hours I'm advance to say fire pits are available to rent and wood is available to buy. I'm sorry you felt wronged by this. My Mom is 73 and I don't expect her to have to take in every fire pit on the pitches for just an hour just to bring them back out again, it doesn't make sense to me.

Local attractions

The Wrekin can be seen from all around here and can be reached by car in about 10 minutes. There are paths up both sides of the hill, with one that's gentler on the knees and another rougher route for those that appreciate a good challenge. There are plenty more climbs, rambles and cycle rides on offer if you head 20 minutes or so to the south to the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – Church Stretton (30 minutes) is always a good place to start.

To the east is Telford (15 minutes) and Ironbridge (20 minutes), a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a proud industrial past. As well as the Iron Bridge itself, this scenic stretch of the Severn is home to sights as varied as Buildwas Abbey (20 minutes), museums dedicated to tiles and china (20 minutes) and Benthall Hall (25 minutes), a National Trust property.

In the other direction, you have Shrewsbury town centre (15 minutes), where boat trips, history walks and independent shops are on offer. Alternatively, on the outskirts of town there are historic sites like Wroxeter Roman City (10 minutes), Attingham Park (10 minutes), a stately home with gorgeous grounds, and Haughmond Abbey (15 minutes).

Must see

  • Darby Houses (Ironbridge) (10.3 kilometres)
  • Blists Hill Victorian Town (10.6 kilometres)
