General

  • Small peaceful site in scenic surroundings
  • Miles of quiet, flat country lanes to explore by bike
  • Dog-walking area and 1940s vintage bikes for hire

Located in a peaceful and remote location in Whixall, Abbey Green Farm is a small family-run site set in the countryside for peace and relaxation.

The farm is a short drive from Wem (three miles away) and Whitchurch (seven miles away), making it a handy base for cycling, walking and exploring the Shropshire countryside. The grounds have scenic gardens as well as a large area for walking dogs. Afternoon teas are served in the gardens for an additional charge.

Abbey Green has clean toilets, free hot showers in a newly-built luxury shower block, a laundry room and a new indoor washing-up area. There are also a number of vintage 1940s restored bicycles for hire, and new play equipment for kids was added in 2017.

The site is two miles from the popular Dog and Bull pub serving tasty food and a good selection of ales.

    Rural and peaceful location. Small play area.

    Disliked: 

    No one there to meet when arrived, had to wait nearly an hour. When site was 3/4 full on Saturday night there were queues for toilets/showers

From the manager...

Thank you for taking time to leave us your review.
We do not invite arrivals until 4 PM unless by prior arrangement (early arrival option for an additional £8 charge).
It was unfortunate that you arrived at 3pm and had to wait until 4pm to set up your motorhome.
We now have an additional portable toilet to alleviate queues at busy times.
We are pleased you enjoyed our peaceful area and play ground.
We thank you for adding those wonderful photo's.

    Quiet small family run site, with lots of personal touches.
    Owner is friendly, nothing is too much trouble.
    Afternoon tea is amazing, fresh scones still warm from the oven, home baked cakes, dessert and sandwiches all brought out to the tent with a pot of tea.
    Option of breakfast rolls brought to your tent too, we didn’t try these.
    Clean showers and toilets
    Indoor dish washing facilities
    Lots of local walks mapped out, and local places to eat.
    Games and toys to borrow
    Play area to keep kids occupied with trampoline, climbing frame, monkey bars, swing, balance logs, stepping stones, goal, footballs, croquet, frisbees, gym balls etc
    Free WiFi
    Washing machine for a small fee to use
    Hoover to borrow made a doddle of the vacuum bags when packing up to come home

    Disliked: 

    Only a few toilets so they get busy first thing
    Pitches not level where we pitched

    This site is a lovely find in the heart of Shropshire! Rose and Philip,the owners, are really friendly and make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. The facilities are regularly cleaned and the gardens are regularly tidied! We enjoyed afternoon tea served by Rose and even had a tasty BBQ provided for an extra fee, (I whole heartedly recommend it!) The moat-shed is a lovely restaurant to have a meal with your other half and only a 5minute drive away! The site shower block is kept clean and tidy, with other campers being respectful of Rose and Philips efforts to keep it clean! The site is quite small so it gives it a family friendly feel and your children can happily play in the outside play area, away from cars coming in and out of the site.

    Best of all... Abbey Green Farm is so peaceful !!! We counted 4 cars that went past the site all day on a Saturday 😊

    Absolute Bliss !!

    Disliked: 

    The pitch was uneven - but didn’t affect our stay whatsoever!

    Tip - ask Philip / Rose for an extension lead for your electric hook-up!
