General

  • Small peaceful site in scenic surroundings
  • Miles of quiet, flat country lanes to explore by bike
  • Dog-walking area and 1940s vintage bikes for hire

Located in a peaceful and remote location in Whixall, Abbey Green Farm is a small family-run site set in the countryside for peace and relaxation.

The farm is a short drive from Wem (three miles away) and Whitchurch (seven miles away), making it a handy base for cycling, walking and exploring the Shropshire countryside. The grounds have scenic gardens as well as a large area for walking dogs. Afternoon teas are served in the gardens for an additional charge.

Abbey Green has clean toilets, free hot showers in a newly-built luxury shower block, a laundry room and a new indoor washing-up area. There are also a number of vintage 1940s restored bicycles for hire, and new play equipment for kids was added in 2017.

The site is two miles from the popular Dog and Bull pub serving tasty food and a good selection of ales.

Brilliant rural, quiet camping location 07/18/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Claire J. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Electric grass touring caravan pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We were specifically looking for a farm campsite, as we don’t like large, cramped, busy campsites. If you are looking for a relaxed, rural, quiet site, then look no more. They had around 10 pitches with electric hook up option and nicely spaced out. The toilet/ shower rooms were honestly the best I’ve seen. They have a notice board with info of pubs and menus in the local area, walks, WiFi code, there contact numbers.They also provide extra services such as bacon sandwiches and afternoon cream tea. For the children a table full of board games and a wooden climbing frame. They have seriously put time and effort into the attention to detail, this clearly shows through. Will definitely be returning. 5 Stars !!!

From the manager...

Thank you very much for leaving such a detailed review. This review is a true depiction of our site and we thank you Gill & Claire for taking time to share it with others and we would love for you to stay with us again.

If you read this review and think 'this is the perfect site for me' -that's great, you would be very warmly welcomed.

If you like large sites with swimming pools, club entertainment and kid's clubs this is NOT the site for you.

    Rural and peaceful location. Small play area.

    Disliked: 

    No one there to meet when arrived, had to wait nearly an hour. When site was 3/4 full on Saturday night there were queues for toilets/showers

From the manager...

Thank you for taking time to leave us your review.
We do not invite arrivals until 4 PM unless by prior arrangement (early arrival option for an additional £8 charge).
It was unfortunate that you arrived at 3pm and had to wait until 4pm to set up your motorhome.
We now have an additional portable toilet to alleviate queues at busy times.
We are pleased you enjoyed our peaceful area and play ground.
We thank you for adding those wonderful photo's.
