Shropshire Hills Glamping will be closing with immediate effect, until further notice.
Keeping you and your family safe and well is, and always will be, our first priority.
Given the continued escalation of the virus, the thoughts of our customers and the messages from local tourist boards it is clear the time has now come to close all our sites with immediate effect.
We'd ask that you only call if you need to, we'll work through bookings and get to you as soon as we possibly can. We'll also be emailing all customers who have existing bookings with further advice. We are working very hard and we are here to help.
For bookings from now until the end of April
If you have a booking on our system between now and the end of April please do not travel. There is no need to call us. We will contact you to rearrange for later in the year. If you are currently on-site.
For bookings in May
We will continue to follow government advice and will make a statement on May bookings as soon as the situation becomes clear. We will also be contacting each of you with the option to keep your booking, move it to later in the year or the following year if needed.

Shropshire Hills Glamping was an idea decided over dinner one night with our two children.
On the idea of opening up our beautiful home in the Shropshire Hills to others, making nature a more comfortable, easy, and enjoyable environment.
We love the idea of welcoming guests seeking a different alternative to conventional camping, an off-grid experience, where you can disconnect from the modern world. With our superb Shropshire Hills location and endless opportunities for natural adventures, we are confident in providing an experience to remember.
