Upper Shadymoor Farm

Stapleton Shropshire SY5 7LB 01420 80 804

We say

Part of the hugely successful Feather Down Farms concept, Upper Shadymoor Farm is camping for those who like their creature comforts – rustic decor and outdoor living but with comfy bedding and all mod cons thrown in including a hob, wood burner and coffee grinder. Feather Down takes pride in the details, making sure you always get a jaw-dropping view, the eggs are always ready to be collected from the chicken coop; and fresh bacon and milk is only a larder trip away. This leaves you more time to concentrate on enjoying yourself and making the most of your surroundings. You don't need a tent, as they come pre-erected, fully furnished and look somewhat close to a rural pop up palace. Feather Down use redundant land from farmers, build the tents, and then let the (more authentic) farmers look after you.

You'll love Upper Shadymoor's higgledy-piggledy charm. Between the towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow, its irregular contours follow those of the original deer park laid out in 1284 by Robert of Stapleton. Upper Shadymoor is a natural water park, with a brook and 16 pools spread out over 200 acres. As well as wild swimming and messing about in boats, the onsite water trampoline is a definite must – although you might prefer to play it safe in the hot tub. Offsite you've got a pick of the stunning Shropshire Hills (perfect for walking addicts), or the urban metropolitan cities Birmingham and Manchester.
