The Newnes Touring Caravan Park is an adult only (over 18s) site and is a wonderful haven for visitors to escape from their busy lives and get back to the wonders of nature. The Park is set in the small hamlet of The Newnes, where the owners have farmed for seven generations, since 1840. The Newnes dates to Medieval times and gets its name from when King Edward II is said to have placed some new people on the property formerly occupied by displaced Welsh Rebels. The origin of these people is unknown, but they were referred to as the neow-ones (old English for new), hence the name Newnes. The touring site is set amid North Shropshire, half a mile (10-minute walk) from the Historic Market town of Ellesmere, known as ‘Shropshire’s Lake District.’ An elevated site with 60 level grass or hardstanding pitches (some seasonal) each with electric hook-up points plus individual mains water taps. Night lights on each hook-up point, awnings welcome. Each pitch looks out onto the remainder of the 8 acre site, which is lawned and level, giving superb views over the beautiful surrounding countryside.

From Oswestry on the A5 turn right onto A495. The site is then on the left after passing through Frankton. From Ellesmere take A495 towards Whittington. As you leave Ellesmere you will go over the roundabout by Ellesmere Business Park and will need to take the next right after approximately 500m. Follow the lane through the old farm buildings, then bear right at the triangle. In approx. 50 metres, turn right into the site.
