General

  • Luxurious glamping tents with 360-degree views of the Shropshire Hills
  • A 15-minute drive to Carding Mill Valley; 40 minutes’ drive to Ludlow
  • Well-kitted out bell tents with walks from site; pubs and shops nearby

Fancy a luxurious glamping break in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with myriad walks and cycle routes all around you? Alderwood Glamping might just be the spot you’re looking for. With fabulous rural views all around, the site is a 10-minute walk from escarpment trails leadig into Carding Mill Valley and 15 minutes’ drive from the Ragleth Hill Circular route.

This is a small site with just a few bell tents three fields away from gravelled car parking. In good weather, you can drive down to the neighbouring field, but otherwise the owners are on hand to help you transport luggage to and fro.

Creatively kitted out with picnic tables, handmade beds and boho bed linens, the tents are comfy, welcoming retreats with storage space, chairs and cosy blankets for an unforgettable stay – just the thing for romantic breaks under the star or families wanting a countryside catch up.

The cute decor is prettied up with bunting – by night fairy lights sparkle and there’s a wood-burning stove to keep you all toasty. And although it’s an off-grid spot, soothing hot showers (great after a day yomping across Shropshire hills), toilets and cooking facilities are at your disposal.

Cardington village (five minutes’ drive) is home to a traditional pub, while Church Stretton (15 minutes) is the place for handy stores and a choice of takeaways. The gorgeous towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow (both 40 minutes) make smashing day trips for a potter around medieval castles and quirky museums.

Amazing magical place, will be returning.08/31/2022

    Everything, I was lucky enough to have the field to myself for one night which was very special. The owls & stars were amazing as were the buzzards & kites (I’ve never seen so many kites in the wild before!). The little wooded area close by was really cute & I can imagine the brook, when not dry, would be a great adventure for children. Nothing was too much trouble for Jill & her husband, they were super helpful. I think it would be nice to think about adding another tent away from the 4 for people who want to experience the countryside more remotely. The tents aren’t too close together but you would hear others as it’s so quiet.

    Disliked: 

    Would probably have liked a few more lights in the toilet shower block as quite dark in there even in the day.

    The campsite was wonderful. Fabulous facilities and spacious area. The hosts were wonderful. BBQ and Fire pit facilities were great. May be take a power pack like we did as the campsite has no electricity, however has a solar power charged electrical charger/radio. Which helped throughout our stay.

    Lovely quiet site with very helpful owners.
    The composting toilet may not be to everyones approval, but you're in an isolated field with no amenities so they are what they are! They were kept very clean.
    We felt refreshed and revitalised following our stay. Thank you!

    My daughter got a signal on EE with her iPhone-she was so happy! haha

    The man was so friendly, couldn’t do enough and was very helpful, the tent was large and water proof (no damp edges in the morning) the woods was a lovely walk and it was so peaceful.

    Disliked: 

    We needed a few more lights, and maybe a sheltered area for when it rains. Also a lot of sheep poop about and it attracted a lot of flies.

    Hosts were very friendly and even allowed my daughter to take part in feeding their animals.
    The site is based in a beautiful area and we had great facilities.

    Disliked: 

    Not so much a dislike but more a personal preference. The bell tent was one of four on site and all four were placed along side each other. It would have been far more enjoyable/relaxing if the tents had been placed away from each other giving the feeling of seclusion.

From the manager...

Hope to see you again

Local attractions

Outdoor types can head off into the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty direct from the site, for numerous walks and cycling routes from easy to challenging. Expert mountain bikers test their nerve and skills on steep courses at Shropshire Hills Mountain Bike and Outdoor Pursuit Centre, or for a more sedate day out play a game of golf (both 20 minutes’ drive) or saunter up Ragleth Hill (15 minutes) for 360-degree panoramas.

Mix in a bit of history with all these outdoor activities: discover Stokesay Castle, a fortified medieval manor surrounded by a moat, on a free audio tour. There are more magnificent Shropshire Hills AONB views from the spindly, hilltop Flounders’ Folly (both 25 minutes), and interpretive signs at Clun Castle (40 minutes) teach you all about this former border-defence fortification slowly crumbling into ruins.

You’ve also got a brace of delightful market towns to explore. Ludlow is packed with half-timbered buildings, indie shops and romantic pubs for cosy lunches, all overlooked by an 11th-century castle open for touring. Shrewsbury (both 40 minutes) has a charming mixture of half-timbered and Georgian architecture, plus walks along the River Severn, a rose-pink castle and a soaring medieval abbey.

Must see

  • Much Wenlock Priory (13.7 kilometres)
  • Stokesay Castle (14.7 kilometres)
  • Enginuity (19.2 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Carding Mill Valley and the Shropshire Hills (5.1 kilometres)
  • Wilderhope Manor (5.8 kilometres)
