General

  • Off-grid and eco-friendly site on a working farm in the Teme Valley
  • A 30-minute drive from Leominster and Kidderminster
  • Honesty shop with perishables for sale on site

Are quiet and secluded countryside stays calling? Take a look at By the Red Phone Box, a family-friendly site 10 minutes’ drive from the Worcestershire market town of Tenbury Wells.

Amid meadow grasses on a Teme Valley working farm, this is a top spot for making the most of scenic rural vistas. Views of Clee Hill can be taken in from site, and a host of lanes, footpaths and bridleways start on site to take rambling guests on countryside strolls. The natural setting is enhanced by the free-range cattle, pigs, sheep, horses and chickens, but don’t worry – fencing ensures they can’t show up at tents unannounced.

There's plenty of birdsong to hear on site, and you can borrow wildlife books to identify what you’re hearing – walking maps are available too. The site's also 20 minutes' drive away from Wyre Forest, 15 minutes from Go Ape Wyre and 10 minutes from the fishing lakes at Woodston Manor.

With nature-filled and eco-friendly breaks being of utmost importance, the site has all the credentials for peaceful getaways with a low carbon footprint, including composting toilets, gas-heated water, solar lighting and a recycling system. The showers, toilets and washing-up area are all found in a lovingly restored horse box, and – a nice touch this – if temperatures drop, you can stay cosy overnight with hot-water bottles provided by the site team.

When it comes time for eats, barbecues are welcome on site, and you can pick up bits and bobs from the supermarket in Tenbury Wells. The site's neighbours also host a pop-up pizza and perry night at their farm, just a short stroll down the lane; it's held every other Friday evening.

    The best toiletries set up i have had in a long time. Great little setup with great detail thought out for all your needs. We thoroughly enjoyed the 3.5mile circular walk surrounding the site and local area.

    Disliked: 

    Be sure to bring your own entertainment although the sheep in the adjacent field provided hours of fun to my 8yr old.
    Unfortunately no reception in this area let alone 4g although not alot can be done about this i imagine.

    Off grid nature of the site and really quiet which was great for a short night trip away. My daughter loves the sheep and the Shepard's hut. The fact you were also able to have a fire was a nice touch and the honesty box for supplies was a great idea. The books were also appreciated to help pass the time

    Disliked: 

    Nothing. A perfect little getaway.

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us hope to see you again soon

    Beautiful peaceful place, carefully and thoughtfully designed with lots of little touches to make the stay comfortable

    Disliked: 

    Very little! The firewood didn’t burn well in the fire pit is all I could possibly complain about! The local council should do more to protect footpaths

From the manager...

so glad you enjoyed your stay, please let me know if there are any problems with your firewood or footpaths next time, as we can replace firewood and we can contact the parish footpaths officer with any concerns (there's a lot of fencing renewal being carried out locally so hopefully any issues will have been resolved next time you stay).

    Ideal spot to try camping with our daughter without investing in lots of gear. By the Red Phone Box provide everything you need for a really comfortable and relaxing experience. Having our own bathroom, access to a fridge and the ability to charge our phones appealed to us and phone signal was actually pretty good even though you feel quite 'off the grid'.

    The facilities are clean and the site is beautiful and really well maintained. You feel cosy and private in your own space but close enough to plenty of amenities and places for a day trip to keep you busy and catered for.

    Bread, sausages and apple juice are all delicious. The BBQ, firepit and fairy lights make for a lovely evening sat outside saying hi to the odd sheep in the field next door.

Local attractions

Close to the borders of Worcestershire, Shropshire and Herefordshire, this site is well placed for adventures of all kinds. There’s a wealth of great spots hereabouts, so be sure to try as many as possible, starting with the museum, swimming pool and shops of Tenbury Wells and the bars, restaurants and brewery of Cleobury Mortimer (both within 10 minutes’ drive).

Farther afield, Ludlow (25 minutes) is a must for its castle, market, shops and brewery. Leominster and Kidderminster (both 30 minutes) have even more to entice, from Grange Court and the start of the 40-mile circular Black and White Trail in the former, to the Severn Valley Railway, railway museum and West Midlands Safari Park in the latter.

Other days out can be had in Hereford (45 minutes), where visitors should wander about the Black and White museum, the waterworks museum and – perhaps most importantly of all – the cider museum.

If history is becoming the draw, take trips to Great Witley Court, Berrington Hall, Brockhampton, Croft Castle, Hampton Court and Stokesay Castle (all within about half an hour). A similar distance away are Stockton Bury Gardens, Ralph Court Gardens and Hampton Gardens for the green-fingered guests.

Must see

  • Ludlow Castle (12.8 kilometres)
  • Witley Court & Gardens (English Heritage) (14.5 kilometres)
  • Stokesay Castle (22.3 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Brockhampton Estate (17.1 kilometres)
  • Croft Castle and Parkland (19.2 kilometres)
