Castle Gate Campsite: Castle Gate Campsite

General

  • Back-to-basics site on a farm 10 minutes' drive from Kidderminster
  • West Midland Safari Park and Go Ape! within a 20-minute drive
  • A 10-minute walk from two riverside food pubs and miniature golf

Keen for a country escape close to Kidderminster? Castle Gate Campsite could be the place for you – wend your way to its Wolverley location to be 10 minutes’ drive from the centre of town, and well within reach of lots of ways to spend Worcestershire days.

This working farm site once had its own castle; it’s long gone now, but you’ll still see traces of the walls around the park, and be greeted by two grand gatehouses. With the fancy focal point no more, life proceeds at a rather more sedate and simple level: this is a rural back to basics place, where frills are limited to just a toilet and sink and where neighbours are mostly cattle and horses.

To fill up on fresh air, take a little trot around the park, following the trails and seeking out little sunny spots in the wooded areas. You may also want to consider barbecue based cookouts, or leave all the foodie prep to the pros by toddling off to one of the local pubs – there are two rather fine options down by the river, about a half-hour amble away. (If you opt for the Queens Head, take some time to peruse the pub’s team photos to see if you can spot a famed musician among the ranks.)

    Owner was very friendly. Secluded location away from any built up area, so felt very at one with nature. Very good price, cheap and cheerful.

    Disliked: 

    Was quite busy so didn’t have much pitch choice. The ground was very sloped in parts so could be and issue in peak season.

Directions


Use the Google Maps location 'Strong Farmed 1988' and access the site from Castle Road.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Once you’ve warmed up on the farm, head off to the Wyre Forest National Nature Reserve 20 minutes away, for walks through the woodland, meadows and orchards that make up the 549-hectare reserve. Tread quietly for glimpses of deer, butterflies and kingfishers; you can always save your yelling for a ride on the ziplines at the forest’s Go Ape! adventure park.

If farm life’s given the kids (or, ahem, you) a desire to get hands-on with the animals, take flight to Little Owl Farm Park (20 minutes’ drive), where they (or, ahem, you) can pet chicks and bunnies and make pals with the pigs. Best be keeping your hands to yourselves if you then head on to the West Midland Safari Park (15 minutes) – the beasts here are rather bigger and better viewed from a safe distance.

Holiday not complete without hitting a few balls about? Depending on your golfing prowess you may like to swing your way round the 18-hole course at Kidderminster Golf Club, or putt your way round the zany obstacles at the miniature golf course in Wolverley.

Train buffs will know Kidderminster as a place to join the steam powered Severn Valley Railway; it’s also home to the Museum of Carpet (a bit niche, this one, but with high praise from past visitors).

Must see

  • Dudley Zoological Gardens (15.2 kilometres)
  • Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings (15.3 kilometres)
  • Witley Court & Gardens (English Heritage) (16.0 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Kinver Edge and the Rock Houses (4.3 kilometres)
  • Rosedene (10.7 kilometres)
