Alan Rogers Review

Remotely situated in a pleasant valley, in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and sandwiched between the Stiperstones and The Long Mynd, The Green would make an ideal base for some serious walking; a footpath to the Stiperstones passes through the site. The 15-acre site is delightful, and is divided into several fields. There are 160 pitches, taking tourers, seasonal units, and around 20 holiday homes (with 53 pitches having 16A electricity hook-ups for tourers). The main field has some hardstandings. The East Onny is a small, shallow river which runs through the site, much enjoyed by the youngsters, who can spend many hours catching minnows.

Adults might be more interested in the wildlife with many species of birds, bats and moths to watch out for during the daytime. During the hours of darkness the amateur astronomers come into their own. With the lack of light pollution, on a cloudless night the night sky views are magnificent.

Facilities

One main sanitary block, built into the side of a large barn, provides adequate and plentiful facilities with spacious hot showers (20 p), dishwashing and laundry facilities. There is no dedicated unit for disabled campers. Small shop in new reception building. Playground. WiFi (free by reception).
