The Owner Says
Crazy Horse Yurt is located in the yurt field, on the edge of the arboretum with lake views. This beautiful structure is elevated on a grassy hill side next to a magnificent oak tree. Outside there is a decking area with ample seating and a BBQ. There are also shared facilities, a campfire, table tennis and badminton set which is for all of the yurts.
Inside Crazy Horse Yurt there is a wood burning stove, double bed, seating area and a 1 ring gas stove cooker to make yourself a cuppa. The Yurts at Walcot Hall are furnished in a simple yet nomadic way, incorporating ethnic prints and furs. 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.
All of Walcot Hall’s self catering holiday cottages and glamping accommodation are dog friendly.

ActivitiesWalcot 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 & DrinkThe 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.
