General

  • Small peaceful adults-only site in the Shropshire countryside
  • A 20-minute drive from the Meres and 45 minutes from Wenlock Edge
  • Vintage bikes for hire; afternoon teas and Full English breakfasts

Fancy a vintage voyage? Then pull on your gaiters, set your pipe firmly between your teeth and pedal off towards Abbey Green Farm, a peaceful site in the unchanging Shropshire countryside: they’ll even rent you a 1940s bicycle so you can explore it in proper style.

Adding to the stillness, Abbey Green Farm is an adults-only site, for visitors aged 16 and upwards (and dogs of all ages), so the squealing of small folk (along with traffic noise) is a long way distant. The well-tended and classically English gardens attract a variety of birds and insects to the site: how about taking it all in over afternoon tea, served on the farm terrace surrounded by Shropshire countryside...?

Other foodie options include full English breakfasts delivered right to your door of a morning; if you have an urge for DIY dining, barbecues are allowed on the site and there are shops and supermarkets in nearby Wem and Whitchurch, 10 and 20 minutes’ drive away. Alternatively, get your best tweed knickerbockers on and cycle the two miles to the Dog and Bull pub for local ales and hot fresh food.

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

This is an adults-only site. Children under the age of 16 are not allowed on site.

All campers must bring their own electric hook-up leads.

Excellent site with good facilities and lovely owners 10/03/2018

    Well, having just spent two nights at this secluded campsite, I can't speak too highly of it. The pitch was great and the facilities were clean and warm. This made it all feel very cosy and safe, important when you're living with Young Onset Dementia. But the thing that made my stay was the kindness of the owners. Rose even brought me a hot water bottle as she was concerned about me being cold. If that's not going the extra mile, I don't know what is. A bacon butty in the morning delivered to your tent has got to be a luxury.
    I'm reluctant to rave about this site anymore because my little bolt hole might get so busy there won't be be space for me next year. Will I be going back? You try stoping me. It's called living well with dementia

Excellent, excellent,excellent ! 09/15/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Katherine W. Confirmed

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

    What's not to like! An idyllic, peaceful site in rural Shropshire well away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to local amenities. It's the second time we've visited this site and we will gladly go again.
    Particularly liked the peace and quiet (we were the only ones on site!).
    The toilets and showers are spotless and feel more like home with lovely touches of decor and the shower temperature is perfect.
    The afternoon teas that the owner serves as an optional extra are delicious and excellent value for money as are the bacon rolls!
    It is a small compact site, which we loved.
    Rose and Phil are friendly and welcoming and we look forward to next year.

    Disliked: 

    The only thing to dislike and which didn't affect us either time is the pitches are quite close together which at busy times of year I would personally dislike.

Local attractions

Whixall Nature Reserve a 20-minute drive away is one of the last few lowland raised bogs left in the British Isles and as such it’s home to a menagerie of birdlife along with some rather prehistoric sights, such as carnivorous sundew, adders (wear your boots) and six-inch water-skating raft spiders.

The nearby Meres, lakes and wetlands formed at the end of the Ice Age are all between 20 and 25 minutes away and make for fine walks and nature spotting: birdwatchers come from all over the country to Wood Lane Nature Reserve, next to Ellesmere to spot avocets, lapwings and sandpipers.

For bigger walks and climbs, it’s 45 minutes to Wenlock Edge, where you can also add a spot of Segway, quad biking and zipwire traversing to your hiking itinerary, and around an hour to the Shropshire Hills' Carding Mill Valley, for yomps up heather-blanketed slopes, waterfalls and views towards the Black Mountains.

Alternatively, report to Llangollen (45 minutes) for rides on the steam railway and down the canal, and it's a similar distance to walk the ‘stream in the sky’, otherwise known as the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. If you’re more into country piles, visit the eccentric tangle of statues, grottoes, bridges and tunnels created by various owners of Hawkstone Park Follies (15 minutes), or wander the 640 acres of country surrounding 18th-century Attingham Park, dotted with Iron Age and Roman ruins, half an hour away.

Must see

  • Darby Houses (Ironbridge) (32.4 kilometres)
  • Blists Hill Victorian Town (32.8 kilometres)
  • Ironbridge Gorge Museums (33.7 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Attingham Park (23.8 kilometres)
  • Chirk Castle (24.3 kilometres)
