Accommodation Category: Caravan Camping
Join Rachel and Stuart at the Old School Campsite, Shelve for a friendly, family campsite in the heart of the Shropshire Hills. Close to the rivers and hills and not too far from the cosmopolitan town of Shrewsbury.
There are many excellent walks direct from the site, with the legendary Stiperstones and the Long Mynd conveniently near by, as well as being close to many Cycle Trails and Mountain Bike Trails. There’s a shooting range and leisure centre within six miles. Snailbeach Mine, one of the most complete disused mineral mines in the country, is just around the corner.
The site is approximately 2 acres in size and, although small, has been described as ‘a gem of a site’ by previous guests and is well equipped for your needs. Each of our touring pitches has an electric hook up. We have a stone and brick built building containing toilets, wash basins and shower, available for all visitors. Separate washing up facilities with both hot and cold running water. A Chemical waste disposal point is available. We have on site BBQs for your use.
12 touring pitches, hard standings and electric hook ups. Our caravan, Ellesmere, is available for static hire or our campervan, Tank Tank, is also available for static hire. 10 grass tent pitches with parking next to your tent. Our Glamping bell tents are equipped to make your stay with us a memorable one.
You can have relaxing evenings watching the sun setting, while listening to the birds singing as dusk descends, then as the darkness falls you can gaze at the wonderful display of stars in the night sky. Directly accessed from the site, you can be immersed in the wonderful Shropshire countryside within seconds.
Open March to January. Last arrival 21.00. Last departure 12 noon. Booking advisable.
We support youth organisations and groups such as DofE, Scouts, Cadet Forces and can offer camping at a reduced £7 per person.
