The Owner Says

Rolling hills holidays is a small glamping destination tucked away in South Shropshire next to the Welsh border in an unspoiled valley surrounded by hills. A local family wanted to create a unique glamping site with roundhouses to share their love of the location with others. Rolling hills holidays is where adults can escape and find peace and children can get back to nature. The site is within a 50 acre field with a small stream running through it completely surrounded by farm animals, wild birds, rabbits, badgers and even deer at times, who go about their daily business. We wish to preserve the peaceful nature of the location so we all can continue to make fond memories just like we do with our family.
The roundhouses have spectacular views and plenty of walks nearby too! The most popular walk is the Offa's Dyke national trail which runs the length of Wales following much of the border. They both have a log burner in them to keep them warm and cosy no matter what the weather is outside. Each roundhouse has a large comfortable kind-sized bed and two single futons with can be made into single beds. There is a 43 inch TV and two large chairs to relax in. Each year has a view to the stars at night and the clouds in the day through a window in the roof.
 For the sunnier evenings, tables and chairs are set outside with a fire pit or a chiminea so you can sit out until late comfortably.
There is a facility building on site with 2 shower rooms and 2 toilets. You can also use the fully equipped kitchen with a cooker, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and a washing machine. There is also an alfresco dining area with a roof so you can enjoy the outside and still keep dry on those rainy days! If you are missing the outside world too much, Wifi is available here too.
You have plenty of towns nearby to visit such as Clun, Bishops Castle and Montgomery. If you fancy travelling a little further there is Newtown and Welshpool 15 miles away and Ludlow 20 miles away.
All the nearby towns have good quality places to eat, the favourites are the 'White Horse' in Clun and the 'Three Tuns' in Bishops Castle.

Features & Facilities

Each roundhouse has a double bed and 2 futons (which can be folded out into single beds if needed), 2 large arm chairs, a wood-burner, a desk and chair, a 43-inch TV and an en-suite toilet. Outside each yurt there is a table and chairs and a firepit. There is also a modern, communal facility building with 2 shower rooms and a full kitchen that includes a cooker, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washing machine for all to use. There is an alfresco area with a roof to keep you dry on rainy days. WiFi available around the communal building.

Activities

Walkers are in their element here. It's just 300m to the Offa's Dyke national walking trail, which runs then length of Wales roughly following much of the border. Some of it is also accessible via mountain bike and the surrounding Shropshire Hills are popular with those on 2 wheels too. It's 5½ miles to the beautiful old town of Clun, described by poet A.E. Housman as "the quietest place under the sun" and presided over by a ruined, English Heritage-owned castle (0370 333 1181). It's 6 miles, meanwhile, to that market town of Bishops Castle. The prominent 18th century town hall commands the main high street and hosts events throughout the year. There's also a clutch of museums and the Three Tuns Brewery (01588 638392) to explore.

Food & Drink

All the above towns have good quality places to eat. Try the White Horse (01588 418149) in Clun or The Three Tuns (01588 638797) in Bishops Castle. For something different, try a tour and wine tasting at KerryVale Vineyard (01588 620627), which also has a good restaurant, 6 miles away.
