HOLIDAY COTTAGES AND A GLAMPING SITE IN RURAL SHROPSHIRE.
Welcome to Castle Farm - a tranquil and picturesque development of holiday cottages and glamping accommodation in between Ellesmere and Oswestry in the beautiful North Shropshire countryside. Do as much or as little as you like in the local rea, and return to a hot tub to relax in after a busy day.
This is a countryside location, but very close to civilisation, the nearest pub is just 1.5 miles away and just 2 miles away in St Martins where there is a great well stocked supermarket, with fuel station, electric car charging points, post office, cafe, small garden centre and florists
Our two semi-detached cottages, one of which is fully accessible for disabled guests, sleep 4-5, with both of them having their own private patios with hot tubs. Whilst those who prefer a more rustic stay have the choice of four cosy wooden pods, including one with a private hot tub, and our charming new shepherd’s hut – all with electricity, the usual ‘caravan-style’ mod-cons and use of a smart new shower block. Full details can be found on our Cottages and Glamping pages.
Ellesmere with its beautiful meres (lakes) and independent shops is just 5 miles away, and the larger town of Oswestry aprox 8miles away. Pop over the border to Wales and discover Llangollen with its steam train rides, horsedrawn canal boats, and a hike up to Castell Dinas Bran is great for the energetic!
Visit one of the wonders of Wales- Pistyll Rhaedr waterfall, and we also have National Trust properties Chirk Castle and Erddig Hall our closest with Attingham Park and Powis Castle slightly further away.
The medieval county town of Shrewsbury to the south, and the Roman city of Chester to the north, are both just a 45-minute drive away. The Welsh border, bringing with it numerous attractions and some fantastic scenery, is just a little over a mile from Castle Farm too.
Stays in our cottages are a min 2 nights and generally start on a Friday or Monday, prices shown include use of the hot tub at each cottage (can be booked without use of hot tub if preferred at a reduced fee, please ask)
Stays in Bluebell Shepherd Hut, Ash Pod and Willow glamping Pods are a minimum 2 night stay.
Oak and Beech pods can sometimes be booked for 1 nights apart from over bank holidays. We do have complimentary WiFi on site, but it is “rural WiFi, so speeds/connectivity may not be what you are used to) children are welcome and we don’t charge if you want to bring your dogs, either (a maximum of three, depending on size).

We have all loved our stay here. A wonderful location with lots to do. Would recommend Llangollen (steam railway, horse drawn canal boats and aquaduct). Woodpecker Cottage was all we hoped for, and more! We hope to come back in the future as there is so more to see and do. Thanks for everything.
