What we thought
Round 10 minutes drive away from the fantastic Carding Mill Valley, this campsite is a haven for fishing, with a wide range of well-stocked fishing lakes, and because the identify of this campsite suggests, you’ll be able to certainly camp virtually proper beside your chosen fishing spot.
We spent 4 days at Church Stretton Camp & Fish, and while it was comparatively quiet as a result of time of yr, the lakes had been widespread and people fishing in addition to the opposite campers, had been among the many most pleasant people we’ve ever come throughout.
The identical will be mentioned for the stunning staff who care for this family-run web site and we felt extraordinarily welcome and relaxed the complete time we had been there.
Location sensible, the campsite provides the proper mix of rural seclusion and pure magnificence, while offering a mess issues to do inside a half hour drive away.
We had many grand plans for days out, together with strolling and visiting Iron Bridge, however the climate was so good and we felt so totally relaxed on the web site that I’ve to admit, we did little or no!
We did enterprise out to spend at some point in Ludlow the place we loved meandering across the quaint city and stopped for a chew to eat. On one other day we tore ourselves away from a full-schedule of enjoyable to enter Church Stretton. One other pretty little city with some fabulous locations to eat together with Berry’s, a tea room with fingers down the very best scones we’ve ever tasted.
For anybody that fishes, then this campsite is a no brainer and an absolute should. However don’t really feel like it’s essential to fish to like this campsite.
The woodland which offers secluded pitches with a wild tenting really feel, lakside pitches with lovely views of each the lakes and woods and the large tenting meadow means there are tenting pitches to go well with each style.
If you wish to camp within the woods, you’ll want to hold your tenting gear to your pitch and the identical goes for these desirous to camp proper beside the lake like we did, so if you wish to park subsequent to your tent, a meadow pitch may very well be the higher choice.
In addition to the fishing lakes, there’s additionally a ‘swimming gap’ on web site. Someplace in between the scale of a giant pond and a small lake, regardless of being a lover of outside swimming, I used to be recovering from an operation throughout my keep and was unable to swim – an ideal excuse for me to return although!
We cherished that you might simply seize a firepit and beneficiant containers of fireside wooden and kindling will be bought for a really cheap £5, and barbecues stored off the bottom are additionally allowed at this web site.
One factor I’ll level out is that there are not any pitches with electrical hookups on web site because it stands and it’s a web site that’s positively on the off-grid and rustic aspect of issues. Although the services had been at all times clear, don’t count on something too fancy, deliver a torch and toilet roll with you, and luxuriate in really getting again to nature at this beautiful campsite.
We cherished wandering across the woods and simply chilling beside the lake studying and speaking and it’s a campsite we totally suggest and we’ll positively return to.
