Alderwood Glamping: Bell tent and seating

General

  • Luxurious glamping tents with 360-degree views of the Shropshire Hills
  • A 15-minute drive to Carding Mill Valley; 40 minutes’ drive to Ludlow
  • Well-kitted out bell tents with walks from site; pubs and shops nearby

Fancy a luxurious glamping break in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with myriad walks and cycle routes all around you? Alderwood Glamping might just be the spot you’re looking for. With fabulous rural views all around, the site is a 10-minute walk from escarpment trails leadig into Carding Mill Valley and 15 minutes’ drive from the Ragleth Hill Circular route.

This is a small site with just a few bell tents three fields away from gravelled car parking. In good weather, you can drive down to the neighbouring field, but otherwise the owners are on hand to help you transport luggage to and fro.

Creatively kitted out with picnic tables, handmade beds and boho bed linens, the tents are comfy, welcoming retreats with storage space, chairs and cosy blankets for an unforgettable stay – just the thing for romantic breaks under the star or families wanting a countryside catch up.

The cute decor is prettied up with bunting – by night fairy lights sparkle and there’s a wood-burning stove to keep you all toasty. And although it’s an off-grid spot, soothing hot showers (great after a day yomping across Shropshire hills), toilets and cooking facilities are at your disposal.

Cardington village (five minutes’ drive) is home to a traditional pub, while Church Stretton (15 minutes) is the place for handy stores and a choice of takeaways. The gorgeous towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow (both 40 minutes) make smashing day trips for a potter around medieval castles and quirky museums.

    Superb location for glamping with family and friends. The bell tents were well equipped, comfortable and cosy. Shower and toilet were very clean. The hosts, Jill and David were very friendly and accommodating. BBQs and logs were provided along with some tea, coffee, sugar etc. The kids enjoyed feeding the goats everyday. The weather was kind to us and we really had a great time.

    We loved the cosiness of the tent and seclusion of the location. To be able to arrive after a long drive and step into your tent with made beds, gas cooker ready etc. really removes the stress of regular camping and bad weather threat. The site has everything you need (loved the hot shower) and we felt genuinely looked after by our excellent hosts. The region has a lot to offer and family activities are easily planned.

    We loved alderwood glamping! The tent was cosy and well equipped. The beds were really comfortable and we all slept so well. The facilities were cleaned daily, fresh drinking water daily too. Our boys (6&3) have wanted to camp for ages so this Is the perfect step up from camping! It’s quiet and peaceful and perfect for families / couples. The hosts are there when you need them and were ready to greet us for our stay.
    We came to have family time and relax on site but church stretton, shrewsbury, Ludlow are all a stones throw away so if you’re looking for days out there’s always something near by to do. Oh and we got to bottle feed Jack and Spot. The most adorable little goats!

    Fantastic set up! Bell tent was beautiful, clean and had everything you would need for a stay at Alderwood. Thanks to Jill and family for such a lovely welcome and allowing our boys to feed Jack and Spot (adorable goats). We are a family with 14 and 17 yr old boys who thoroughly enjoyed the lack of signal and electricity…toasting marshmallows over the fire pit and playing card games/dominoes etc in the evenings…a great family reconnect 😉 We will definitely be back…Thanks Alderwood Glamping for such a lovely holiday!

Local attractions

Outdoor types can head off into the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty direct from the site, for numerous walks and cycling routes from easy to challenging. Expert mountain bikers test their nerve and skills on steep courses at Shropshire Hills Mountain Bike and Outdoor Pursuit Centre, or for a more sedate day out play a game of golf (both 20 minutes’ drive) or saunter up Ragleth Hill (15 minutes) for 360-degree panoramas.

Mix in a bit of history with all these outdoor activities: discover Stokesay Castle, a fortified medieval manor surrounded by a moat, on a free audio tour. There are more magnificent Shropshire Hills AONB views from the spindly, hilltop Flounders’ Folly (both 25 minutes), and interpretive signs at Clun Castle (40 minutes) teach you all about this former border-defence fortification slowly crumbling into ruins.

You’ve also got a brace of delightful market towns to explore. Ludlow is packed with half-timbered buildings, indie shops and romantic pubs for cosy lunches, all overlooked by an 11th-century castle open for touring. Shrewsbury (both 40 minutes) has a charming mixture of half-timbered and Georgian architecture, plus walks along the River Severn, a rose-pink castle and a soaring medieval abbey.

Must see

  • Much Wenlock Priory (13.7 kilometres)
  • Stokesay Castle (14.7 kilometres)
  • Enginuity (19.2 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Carding Mill Valley and the Shropshire Hills (5.1 kilometres)
