The Owner Says

Our most unique place to stay, the Fire Truck. It is secluded at the top of the Arboretum and only accessible on foot. This is glamping to the max!

A full size double bed surrounded by an eclectic mix of fabrics and furniture; old wine crates, lanterns and white wicker chairs make this a cosy romantic retreat. Tucked up at the top of the arboretum the Fire Truck is in a really glorious spot, during Spring this wagon is surrounded by a carpet of bluebells!

There is a long drop toilet and shower facilities near by. We provide the bed linen but please bring your own towels. There is a 1 ring gas stove for cooking on, all crockery and cooking equipment etc is provided.

If you are wanting to escape from everyday life, be surrounded by nature and silence then this is the place for you.

Our glamping accommodations are only suitable for the more agile and adventurous, sturdy footwear and a torch are essential! All of Walcot Hall’s self catering holiday cottages and glamping accommodation are dog friendly.

Activities

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.
