Our glamping pods were born when a creative mind wandered through the showground and saw potential in our old stables…
We now have five stable pods on site, four of which can sleep two to three people and a large pod which sleeps up to seven. All have their own area for a BBQ and a small garden to relax in and the pods have heaters to keep you warm and toasty on the colder nights.
Did You Know?
You can see Mount House from our glamping pods - the birthplace and childhood home of naturalist Charles Darwin (hence the name!).
The glamping pod area was named after Shrewsbury’s famous son, the naturalist Charles Darwin.
Darwin was born, in the house that can be seen from our pods, on February 12th, 1809, and acquired his love of nature in Shrewsbury roaming the meadows along the River Severn before leaving the town in his 20s to join the HMS Beagle.
Darwin’s childhood garden, where he spent much of his childhood, lies alongside the river below Mount Road and is open a number of times a year for visitors.
Great location just an easy 15 minute walk into town. Own little garden with a shelter and fire pit. Washing and toilet block and pot wash point close by. Very friendly staff. Very peaceful, calm and relaxing even though it is a big site. We had a great stay.
Great having indoor area (with heater) and two outside options (no cover or under cover). Site was enormous so plenty of room for kids to kick a ball and run about. Good fun swimming, canoeing and fishing in the River Severn. Site very secure and staff all very helpful. Shrewsbury and the surrounding area is a great location with so much to see and do. We will be back.
We had a great camping weekend and thank you for the warm & helpful welcome when we arrived. Facilities were fine, nice powerful showers and ideally situated, being a peaceful site, but still close to the town. We will certainly be returning and have recommended the site to friends. "What a find" Thanks again!
