The Owner Says

After the Gold Rush Yurt is the epitome of glamping. This spacious yurt boasts stunning views over its own pool which comes with a rowing boat!  This beautiful structure is elevated up over the pool and has a decking area with ample seating. Just across the way are the facilities, plus table tennis and badminton which are all shared by all yurts.

Inside there is a wood burning stove, double bed, small double sofa bed, cooking area with a table and four chairs, a 2 ring gas stove cooker.  There is a shared cooking area on the yurt field which provides you with everything you should need from crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils, gas, washing up liquid, tea, coffee and sugar. We supply you with bed linen in your yurt but we ask you to bring your own towels.

There are also hot showers and quirky flushing loos a short distance away as well as a small well equipped kitchen area with gas burner.

Please note there is a steep drop from the decking platform to the pool so it is not suitable for small children or people with mobility issues.

All of Walcot Hall’s self catering holiday cottages and glamping accommodation are dog friendly.

Features & Facilities

Facilities include heated amenity block with showers, toilets, washing machines, dryers and chemical disposal point. 12 of the pitches have electrical hook-up available. Walcot Hall estate has 2 large lakes with rowing boats which can be used, and one of the largest arboretums in the UK which guests are welcome to explore.


Walcot Hall is an ideal place to join the trails of the Shropshire Hills (01588 674080). Many local footpaths skirt directly around the edge of the estate so it's easy to head directly into the countryside from camp. The Stiperstones (though a short drive away) are particularly beautiful, thick with heather, flourishing purple through spring and early summer, or walk famous Offa's Dyke (01547 528753) just a few miles from the site. The campsite is situated 3 miles from the small market town of Bishops Castle, renowned for its alternative, arty culture and friendly community, and is 30 minutes away from Ludlow and Shrewsbury.

Food & Drink

The campsite is directly to the rear of the Powis Arms (01588 680254), a delightful pub at the bottom of the Walcot Hall driveway. The pub serves bar meals at lunch and in the evening. There is also the village shop just a short walk away. Nearby Bishops Castle (with food shops and a petrol station) is know for its brilliant beers and homemade food. Pubs such as the Three Tuns (01588 638797), the Six Bells (01588 630144) and the Castle Hotel (01588 638403) are famous for their own home brews.
