Wayside Camping: On site view

General

  • Family-run dog-friendly site in the village of Aston on Clun
  • 20 minutes' drive from Ludlow and 40 minutes from Shrewsbury
  • Easy access to the Shropshire Way and a short walk from local pub

Spectacular views, spacious pitches and only a short stroll from the village pub… that’ll do nicely, eh? Have them all at peaceful family-run Wayside Camping, in the petite village of Aston on Clun.

The outlook here is of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a gorgeous area that furnishes guests with a very fine backdrop to an afternoon of chilling out or an evening gathering round the firepit or barbecue (provided on site for guests’ free use).

It’s also a fab place to take your boots or bike – walking and cycle trails here cater for all comers from leisure strollers to more intrepid mountain bikers. Town time can be had nearby foraging in foodie Ludlow or meandering through medieval Shrewsbury, and there are a bunch of National Trust estates to gawp at too. Back at base, owners Ian and Tracy keep their nifty tourist info board updated with details of various local attractions and events.

This quiet site hasn’t gone over the top with heaps of facilities: pitches have electrical supplies and guests have access to a modern toilet block with showers and a washing-up area. A shop is a few minutes’ walk away in the village, as is that all-important country pub (with a fine range of real ales, you may be chuffed to hear).

Please note

The park does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Breed-specific legislation (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Please note : tent pitches must be changed after 7 nights in order to preserve the grass.

Local attractions

Walkers may like to make their way to the Shropshire Way, a long-distance path that’s been carved up into lots of smaller portions, or head for the hilly heaths of Carding Mill Valley, 20 minutes away. While you’re there, hike up to the top of the Long Mynd for some fab views. Meanwhile, mountain bikers can test their skills on the trails 10 minutes away at Hopton Woods.

This area is also home to a fine collection of castles: Stokesay Castle (five minutes away), the ruined Clun Castle (15 minutes) and Ludlow Castle (20 minutes) are all worth a stop. Ludlow’s also the place to pick up local eats at one of the local markets or independent shops.

For more historic wanderings, take a trip to Shrewsbury, 40 minutes away, to see the famed black and white buildings, the abbey and another castle (of course). Or take your pick from the local National Trust piles: Attingham Park, Berrington Hall and Morville Hall are all within a 40-minute drive.

Must see

  • Stokesay Castle (2.3 miles)
  • Ludlow Castle (8.1 miles)
