A scenic, adults-only retreat surrounded by historic Shropshire towns and with excellent walking and cycling on the doorstep

There’s no denying that Greenway is a fantastic campsite. Glowing reviews spread around the internet attest to that. Friendly owners, Jane and Brian, are constantly cited for their enthusiasm and helpfulness, the clean and spacious toilets are always highlighted and the peace and quiet created by their adults-only policy is always a hot point too. Yet, as fantastic as the campsite is, it’s the location that’s difficult to beat.

Spread around three and half acres of gently sloping land, Greenway Touring Park – home to a handful of hardstandings with grass pitches covering the rest – is a truly rural site but with easy access to a wealth of attractions. Just off the side of a quiet B-road, it has a middle-of-nowhere feel accentuated by the footpaths that trail across the surrounding open fields, yet, in reality, some of the top destinations in the county are within just a few minutes’ drive.

It's a 20-minute journey to historic Ludlow, renowned for it’s excellent restaurants and food festival and also home to a magnificent ruined medieval castle (one of the very first stone forts to be built in England). Much Wenlock and Bridgnorth are a 25 minute drive away, Ironbridge – home to a slew of different museums – is 30 minutes and it’s a 40-minute drive to Shrewsbury, the county capital. Even the local village of Craven Arms has it’s own share of history, with a museum and castle to explore, plus the slightly strange Flounders Folly tower – built in 1838 but for what purpose nobody really knows.

This isn’t to say the campsite itself has little to offer. On the contrary, it’s simple set up is part of what makes it so charming. Tent campers and caravanners mingle happily, while along one edge five glamping pods are available to rent. Each of the wooden structures features heating, lighting, a fridge and a double bed settee. They also come with a BBQ best enjoyed by grabbing some fresh meat from Craven Arms’ village butcher. However you choose to camp, this is one location that won't disappoint.
