Townsend Touring Park is one of the best holiday parks in Herefordshire, and it doesn’t take too long upon arriving to understand why it is consistently rated as a five-star resort.
All of the pitches at this park are fully serviced, meaning you can enjoy all of the ‘mod cons’ you are used to at home over the duration of your stay. The modern facilities block is luxurious and comfortable, meaning you can wash and carry out any laundry easily.
One of the main features of the park is a large lake, which is situated at one of the park boundaries, and is open for fishing throughout the year. A well-stocked body of water, many a fisherman has spent their holiday relaxing by the lake with a loved one and their family. For younger members of your party, there is an excellent children’s play area that will help you to wear them out and ensure they have a sound evening of sleep, while the picturesque picnic area is excellent for a spot of al-fresco dining on a beautiful day.
You never have to leave Townsend Touring Park, either, as there is a brilliant farm shop on site. While it caters for a wide range of dietary requirements, the meats that are produced here are definitely the most ‘must try’ products. Whether it is the delicious hand-made sausages or customised burgers, you have everything you need to treat the whole family to a great tasting meal, or to showcase your barbecue talents to the rest of the park.
The nearby village of Pembridge is one of the oldest anywhere in the UK, and is definitely worth dedicating a day to explore, with old buildings and stunning views to be found throughout. Pubs and restaurants are also within easy reach of the park, making it a great choice for a relaxing family break in the countryside.
I am surprised there is not more reviews on this site. We have just returned from a week at this site and i can only agree with the previous review. This site is so relaxing and well maintained,you could live all week just by using the shop on site which sells not only fresh produce but the butchery part sells there own meats great if you like outdoor cooking and i can seriously recommend there dragon sausages ( pork/ leek / chilli)in fact we brought a job lot home for a bbq the following week at home and i had a job to get one myself as fast as they were cooked they were being eaten There is so many places to visit in the area it could warrant a two week stay,There is a big Morrisons supermarket as you go back into Leominster if you like to live out of tins and it has fuel there so if you are out and about we found it was handy for topping up and filling up for our return trip home. In the village ( well worth a walk around) there is a pub called The Red Lion which let us and our two well behaved dogs in and on our second time in i went to the bar and the lady behind the bar had a pint and a half pint glass in her hand and she just said usual which i thought was a great gesture.There is fishing on site you won't catch any monsters but i caught all day on my two trips to the small lake.To sum up this site it is not a case of WILL we return here, but WHEN will we return, and it is already being planned into next years holidays

An excellent site well worthy of 5 stars. If you want peace and quite in stunning surroundings this is the place. However, you may be woken up by the goose but there are worse ways! Facilities are excellent and so is the produce from the farm shop. The surrounding area is well worth exploring and the site is centrally located for some great days out. A return visit is a definate.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Townsend. Kindest Regards, Su , Geoff and all at Townsend.

A beautiful lake with ducks, geese and swans dominates this quiet, country 12-acre caravan park. You can walk into the black and white village of Pembridge in minutes or, for day trips, the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons are both within reach. Pitches are grass or hardstanding, and all are equipped with electric, water and waste-water hook-up. Washroom, washing-up and laundry facilities are located in the heated amenities block. The farm shop supplies groceries, and its butcher’s sells the farm’s own meat products.

Practical Caravan Top 100 parks Award 2007
Perfectly positioned as a weekend retreat for caravanners of the West Midlands, Stanmore Hall occupies a pretty parkland setting, just two miles from the picturesque riverside town of Bridgnorth in Shropshire. The site also attracts many visitors from further afield thanks to its proximity to motorways and
its central location.
The touring areas here are very spacious and are spread out among the many trees surrounding the large lake. There are even examples of giant redwood trees towering over some of the pitches; although not as huge as their Californian cousins, these trees are seriously tall. There is a real quality feel to this park, and the majestic peacocks that stroll among the caravans add a lovely splash of colour. The lake is fenced off except for one end so care must be taken here if you have children. There is a play area, and this is located out of earshot of the adults-only section which is screened by trees for further sound-proofing.
The Severn Valley Railway finishes its scenic 16-mile course in Bridgnorth. Steam trains run on most weekends throughout the year, and daily between May and September. The ‘Santa Special’ service runs throughout December and is always a big hit with youngsters.
Thanks to its great location, a holiday at Stanmore Hall can be as diverse as you want.
