The Owner Says
Our newest addition to the glamping family is our Heart of Gold Yurt. Located in the yurt field alongside Crazy Horse and Buffalo Springfield Yurts this new yurt has its own private decking with wonderful views over the valley and village of Lydbury North.
With a comfy double bed, seating area and wood burning stove you have everything you need for a relaxing digital detox. You have the large arboretum on your doorstep which you are welcome to explore as well as table tennis and badminton on site too.
There is a camp fire set up which you can either cuddle up by with your nearest and dearest or make new friends with fellow guests over toasted marshmallows!
All of our yurts have their own BBQs on their decking but we’re afraid there is no electric up this far on the estate but there are fairy lights and candles in abundance for when the night draws in. 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.
Features & FacilitiesFacilities 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.
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.
