Best campsites for the Shropshire Hills AONB

Here is our pick of the Alan Rogers Assessors, expert-recommended campsites for the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Lying between Ludlow to the south and Shrewsbury to the north, the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty occupies 310 square miles in the Welsh Marches, around a quarter of Shropshire. It has had a turbulent history, with many deserted settlements, stone circles, Roman villas and remains of fortified hilltop communities dating from times when the defence was a primary concern.

There are plenty of exhilarating walks – follow river valleys, through ancient meadows and mixed woodlands and rocky outcrops and hills smothered in heather. As the name suggests, this AONB has plenty of hills to explore! The Long Mynd Trail is popular with deep valleys and Bronze Age monuments. Walcot Woods is magical, with the remnants of a large Elizabethan deer park dotted with 400-year-old oaks. The Offa’s Dyke Path National Trail runs for 177 miles, but 11 miles is in the AONB. Look for some of England’s less often-seen inhabitants along the way - pine martens, red grouse, snipe and merlin.
