Three high-spec glamping pods, perfect for visiting the Shropshire Hills

Eastridge Glamping presents its visitors with a pristine, handcrafted, high-spec pod from which to explore the Shropshire Hills. Think Hobbit house but with a modern flair; this is a true labour of love from its owners. Deborah and her family concluded this was the perfect spot for a glamping location and wanted to share the wonders of the magical Eastridge woods with its rolling hills and idyllic landscape.

Throughout lockdown, juggling the management of their working farm and building a glampsite from the ground up has been a worthwhile challenge for the Pinches family. The Long Mynd and Stiperstones Ridge make for a stunning backdrop which, together, make up the largest area of heathland in this area of natural beauty. A haven of tranquillity, the Shropshire Hills are well known for mountain biking and walking trails, so make sure you bring your walking boots and embrace the thigh burn that the hills give you — the panoramic views are more than worth it. Top tip: in late summer, when the hills are flourishing, look out for bilberry and the rare green hairstreak butterfly.

Close to Shrewsbury and near to the Welsh border lies Eastridge Glamping, where Deborah has provided welcome packs for all who stay, including insider info on the best walking routes and fun days out. Each pod has two single stackable beds with mattresses, so just bring along bedding and any extra beds you may require. The pods contain a kettle, plug sockets, and (hurrah!) an electric barbecue grill in the dining area for your morning fry-up needs. Just a few metres from your pod there’s a toilet and shower block (with flushing loos) and a washing-up station. Deborah has really thought of everything, as there’s also a shared fridge and freezer for guest use.

If walks and mountain biking trails aren’t enough to entice you, The Mytton Arms pub is a four-minute walk away and with the centre of Shrewsbury only a 20-minute drive away; you’ll be spoilt for choice with restaurants. Try The Boathouse, which sits right on the river and has picturesque waterfront views. Beautiful Attingham Park is a National Trust house with a walled garden and playing field, where you can spot the deer and enjoy a picnic on the grounds. The star of the show around this area is the Shropshire Hills, so do ask Deborah for her favourite walks and trails as they are immensely proud of the magic they’ve created here.
