Wayside Camping: Plenty of space around the pitches

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.

The charging of electric vehicles is subject to an additional cost of £10 per night per vehicle.

Lovely site in the countryside08/01/2022

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousMobile phone iconConfirmed

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

    A beautiful small site with views over the countryside, and birds of prey over the fields to either side.

    The toilet block was very clean every time we used it. And even though there were only 2 loos, and 2 showers, we never had to wait.

    The pitches were well set out, and spacious, and the gravel road was edged with paving so you don't end up with pebbles everywhere.

    Ian and Tracy were very helpful owners, always available if there were any problems.

    Craven Arms has an independent supermarket that seems to stock EVERYTHING!! Tuffins is the place to go for your shopping.

    Disliked: 

    Make sure you don't have pitch 1-3 if you are a light sleeper as you can hear the hand driers and fans all night!

    More needs to be made of the cut off point for noise at night. Why do people think I want to listen to their music all day and night?? There are no notices about noise, although it is on the terms and conditions.
    While we were there someone even set up a cinema screen on the side of the caravan and watched a film until well after midnight.

    Maybe we were just unlucky with the people around but if you want a totally peaceful holiday, or you can sleep through anything, this might not be the site for you.
    If the owners did a last walk through the site at 11ish, they would easily stop the problem.

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 (3.6 kilometres)
  • Ludlow Castle (13.1 kilometres)
