Oswestry Camping and Caravanning Club Site is located midway between Oswestry and Shrewsbury with easy access from the A5. Our park is open throughout the year for campers, their families, and their pets to come along and explore this beautiful part of Shropshire. We offer 65 pitches and welcome motorhomes, touring campervans, and tents onto the site.
Free Wi-Fi is provided for campers and we have two bus services at the site entrance. Electric hook-ups are available for hardstanding and grass pitches and the centrally heated facility block also accommodates laundry, washing up, and chemical waste disposal facilities. The small on-site shop sells local products.
The site has a social room “The Barn” and campers are welcome to join our weekly Cuppa & Cake mornings and our monthly Quiz nights held throughout the summer months. We enjoy celebrating the sites’ birthday in August and have four nights of fun leading up and including New Years Eve. We also have a Fish & Chip van visiting the site most Fridays from April – September.
