Throughout every season, Shropshire is the perfect destination. Tucked away on the English and Welsh border, Shropshire has managed to remain unspoilt and comparatively unchanged throughout much of its history. Even the Romans escaped to Shropshire for much needed rest and relaxation!
Known as one of England’s ‘quiet’ counties, there is still plenty to see and do with almost 100 places to visit, including historic houses, castles, beautiful gardens, museums and family attractions. Camping in Shropshire is the perfect choice whether you are looking for a family holiday, romantic weekend, activity break or fun days out.
Ludlow is one of Shropshire’s most picturesque market towns boasting a lively market, food fairs, speciality food shops and a plethora of restaurants and pubs. Shrewsbury is the county town founded by the Saxons and developed by the Tudors. It is particularly famous for its castle, spires, abbey and half-timbered medieval buildings.
Beyond the towns, the Shropshire landscape is diverse and a haven for wildlife. The scenery is stunning with hills and valleys that are a true walker’s paradise. Indeed the hills of South Shropshire, including the Long Mynd, Stretton Hills, Wenlock Edge, Clee Hills and the Wrekin have been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
All campsites in Shropshire offer plenty of activities with major attractions within easy reach, and no visit to Shropshire would be complete without visiting Ironbridge Gorge, Wroxeter Roman City, Hawkstone Historic Park and the mysterious Ludlow Castle. Whatever the season, camping in Shropshire is the perfect holiday for all the family.
