Located in the Shropshire Marches on the way to Wales, Upper Shadymoor is just an hour’s drive from Birmingham and an hour and a half from Manchester. You will be staying with Kevan and Joy Fox and their family but nature itself is the real star of the show. Bluebell woods and wild garlic flourish alongside stunning herd of deer, sheep, working dogs, horses and chickens, plus seasonal goats or pigs. Your canvas hideaways are found in an idyllic grassland glade surrounded by woodland. Here you’ll feel worlds away from city life - the ideal Shropshire family holiday.
Further afield are the medieval towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow. Shrewbury boasts over 600 listed buildings and Ludlow is a foodie capital famous for its castle and theatre festivals. For nature lovers, there are plenty of walks around the Shropshire Hills, including the Long Mynd and Stiperstones – most with a pub along the way!
The highlight for many guests is the water package - with hot-tub, wild swimming, kayaks, whoosh and new for this year paddle boards, often under the watchful gaze of the nearby deer. There are many other activities you can book at Upper Shadymoor including pony craft, deer safaris, dusk adventure and we have a professional masseur too among the treats. Wellness has always been a speciality at Upper Shadymoor; Kevan’s farm walk focuses on the five senses. Don’t forget to stop by the farm’s honesty shop where you can order fresh bread. Pizza night means delectable DIY pizza in the large brick oven. There’s gourmet game available to BBQ, so whatever your choice of evening meal, you’ll find yourself pleasantly contented to enjoy a good night’s sleep in your comfy bed.
Electric car charging is available but unfortunately you cannot bring your dog to Upper Shadymoor.
