    Hi,
    I live in Shropshire, and was wondering if any of you had any knowledge of a campsite/camping field on a working farm nearish to Shropshire/Mid Wales. I would love to take my 2 young daughters to one, they would absolutely love the experience.
    Lisa.

    I dont know of any , off hand in your area , sorry.
    If you are a member of Caravan Club or Camping Caravan Club there should be a C.L. on a farm around the area you are wanting to visit , I would have thought.
    This might bump you up so someone else sees your post.

    Not really shropshire but we go to a lovely small farm CL in the peak district, couple of horses, dog, milking cows, tractors etc. Very friendly, access to old railway line for safe off road cycling / walking.

    Mrs J Broadley, Brundcliffe Farm, Hartington, Buxton, SK17 0BA.

    Often wins best farm cl. lovely room for b&b for non motorhoming friends

    If you have a dog make sure there are no animals on field. In Wales farmer assured me there were no animals in the field. I let the ali out when I got on the field and she ate a lamb. I dar'nt tell Hilary and I cleaned the dog up in the sea and buried the leavings. Not a good holiday!

    Campsite on working farm

    Hi Lisalou222

    If you are members of the Caravan Club, then have a drive to Frodesley, Mr & Mrs J Davis, Brickyard Farm Frodesley, SY5 7HX (I think thats the post code)

    Its a CL site, with shower, wc, cdp, fresh water and 16amp ehu.

    If you have Camping & Caravanning Club membership, then the next farm, also Mr Davis, yes same family, have a CS site, same facilities, only newer.

    If you do not have "club membership" then may I suggest you look on the Shropshire TI web site, I think there is a "private site," on a farm, in the Church Stretton area.

    Another option could be The Ice Cream Farm, Haughton, of the A518 Newport Stafford road, at Haughton, turn right on to Jolt Lane.

    Again a working farm, plus small zoo, site shop and cafe.

    Hope this helps:thumb:

    Hi, how about a site with horses, dogs and cows (no milking), great walks and cost nothing, interested then get in touch because we are looking for someone to keep an eye on our place whilst we go to france. Water, Waste dump but no electric I'm afraid so you will need solar or Genny. In glorious north Devon right near the coast, 5 miles from world renowned surfing beaches at Woolacombe, 8 miles from Barnstaple a market town, and only 3 miles from Ilfracombe town centre with its beaches coves shopping etc.

    If you don't like flies in their hundreds(!), I'd give farm locations a wide berth. I found it impossible to keep them out of the van, even though I have screened windows and door. The black fly-5hit leaves indelible black spots all over your paintwork which takes a lot of work to remove.
