Castle Farm Holidays: Beech and Oak Pods looking down to the shower block

General

  • Comfy glamping units on a quiet site in rural Shropshire
  • A half-hour drive from canal rides, steam railway and Horseshoe Pass
  • Five minutes' drive to pub and 10 minutes to shops

This is border countryside, neither properly English nor Welsh, but very much Shropshire’s own. And Castle Farm Holidays has a lovely patch of it, across green fields just outside the hamlet of Dudleston, gazing onto an old church spire.

The glamping units here are little works of wonder that stay cosy whatever the weather brings along. They all come with electric fires, kettles and microwaves, and they're all secluded and quiet, but comfortably close to the shower block which has a wheelchair-friendly wetroom.

There’s a splendid pub with food five minutes’ drive away near St Martin's, while shops and big supermarkets are close by in Ellesmere, 10 minutes' drive away. The town’s a handy base for exploring the local area, whose various meres formed a string of lakes and wetlands when the last Ice Age ended. There are lots of walking trails to tramp too: around and beyond the town, along the canal and through to the meres.

Birdwatchers flock to Wood Lane Nature Reserve (20 minutes), which draws legions of long-legged water birds like redshanks, whimbrels and green sandpipers. Ellesmere's island (mysteriously called Moscow) is home to a colony of herons, whose soap opera of matching, hatching and chick feeding is beamed live to the big screens at the visitor centre: who needs TV…?

    The location is great. You feel like you are out in the middle of nowhere but in reality you are 5 minutes from the local village (And it's pub). The pods are great and Catored for all of our needs. We got the additional Fire Pit pack which is a must as you watch the sun set and start the fire up, really relaxing.

Directions


If guests have St Mary’s Church, Dudleston on ltheir lefthand side, go down the lane, past Church Farm (connected to the church). Go down the hill and around the bend; the next lefthand driveway takes you down to the pods. If you get to a whitehouse and driveway, you've gone too far: the site is the last property on the lefthand side of the lane. If you go down a hill and across a ford and get to a junction, you've also gone too far.

Local attractions

A half-hour drive across the border gets you to Llangollen, a lively spot lent with a fine backdrop of the Berwyn mountains behind. Sitting on the River Dee, it's a great place for a meander down the canal (you can even hire a horse-drawn boat for an added sense of history). For more vintage experiences, take the steam railway, whose engines puff you 10 miles along the river to Corwen.

Heading back further in time, Chirk Castle (20 minutes) sits on a hill surrounded by parkland right by Offa's Dyke; within its grounds is the Great Oak of the Gate of the Dead, a still-thriving tree planted to mark the site of a battle in 1165. Dinas Bran (30 minutes) is another fine fortification, high in the hills and mostly ruined, and with cracking views. These are rivalled only by the ones at Horseshoe Pass (30 minutes), an old mountain route whose vistas are complemented by a café at the top doing bacon sarnies.

Also half an hour away, the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is a mere 38 metres high but you'll feel suspended in thin air as you walk or boat across this narrow 'stream in the sky' built across the Dee in 1805. For watery thrills of another kind, the Blue Planet Aquarium (an hour) has Europe's largest collection of sharks and perhaps the only bunch you can dive in and say hi to.
