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.

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 flashlight with them as parts of the park are unlit.

    Beautiful and peaceful small site with lovely views. Kate and Ann were very helpful and friendly hosts? There was lots to see in the area. We cycled down route 81, quiet country lanes and then nice cycle route along the Severn into the centre. Also had a good meal at the Grove pub, an easy walk away. So much to see that we might come back!
    Just for those that are fussy, the shower is in a stable and some might not like it. I had no problem with it at all, and plenty of hot water.

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 kilometers)
  • Blists Hill Victorian Town (10.6 kilometers)
