All pitches are non-electric grass pitches that are suitable for tents, campervans and caravans. Supported by two overflow fields if the site is particularly busy or you want a quiet spot. We also welcome groups and schools which can have sole occupancy of a certain field.

Such peaceful surroundings – the natural beauty of the site is off the charts. It was very quiet as well, with good pubs and walks available without using a car. The site owners were flexible. Facilities were basic but functional and reasonably clean. Pitches are flat and spacious, with nice quality ground – pegs go in easily. There are picnic tables available for use.

Beautiful and convenient location at the beginning of the trans-Cambrian trail. Roxy was super helpful allowing me to pay a small extra towards leaving my van there while I cycled the trail, keeping it safe over five days.

Lovely location, 10/15 minute walk into Knighton, pubs a plenty. Toilet block very pleasant & kept nice and clean. Train track does run right alongside the site, but it’s only a single line & a handful of trains each day. Currently only one shower, but it’s a small site so not a huge issue. New shower block being constructed alongside the already opened new toilet block.

Great campsite. Had a lovely time. Lots of room but wasn’t busy so we could pick anywhere to go. Had fridge, kettle and charging facilities which was fantastic. Area to wash cutlery too. Toilets, showers area were fine but could be limited if realy busy but they were being done up at time. Great location for nice walk to knighton shops and pubs. Also Offa’s dyke path walk up to hills was fantastic. Great views. Would definitely stay again.

Fabulous peaceful location only 10 min walk to the town of Knighton. Friendly, helpful staff, well manicured camping field, lovely clean facilities (new showers nearly finished). Plentiful wildlife, as it’s a working farm, the sheep are herded across the camping field, a superb thing to experience. Various good walks and hikes from the site itself. We will be back!

Rural location, easy riverside walk into Knighton for shops, pubs, chippy. Friendly and efficient owners. Smooth well trimmed grass and easy to insert pegs. Facilities are basic but clean and functional. Unexpected nice touches were the 2 kitchen areas with kettle, toaster, microwave, fridge and the picnic tables dotted around the site.

Welcoming owners. The facilities were clean and a perfect campsite next to Offa’s Dyke, River Teme and Knighton only less than a mile away. Working sheep farm with natural unmowed areas. At my pitch:- the thistles were in bloom with many bees, on a migration path every 5 minutes for the Meadow Brown bufferfly and 6 swallow youngsters were getting ready to fly abroad. Perfect pastoral scene.

Very enjoyable. Peaceful, relaxing site. Amenities are good, electric kettle in the rest room. Easy to find, very nice hosts. Red kites flying around. Lovely walk into Knighton with great pubs, cafes and fish and chip shop. Great for site seeing southern Shropshire and mid Wales. Highly recommend.
