Upper Shadymoor Farm
Upper Shadymoor Farm is an hour from Birmingham and an hour and a half from Manchester; yet feels worlds away from both, nestled in a woodland glade and with its own swimming lake. The farm is situated on the Welsh border in the Shropshire Marches, and boasts beautiful walks both around the farm and over Long Mynd and Stiperstones. Set out for a day of exploring and stop to refuel at one of the many country pubs dotted along the walking routes.
Unique to Shadymoor is the number of extra activities available, including pony craft and grooming, the Deer Safari and Dusk Adventure. There’s also children’s arts & crafts sessions and the “Game On” weekend game cooking class – the possibilities for family holiday fun are almost endless! A particularly special treat is the hot tub, water trampoline, boating and wild swim water package; the ultimate hot-cold indulgence enjoyed by Scandinavians and Chinese for centuries. It’s an Upper Shadymoor delight for the whole family, often experienced under the watchful gaze of local Red Deer.
The real star of Upper Shadymoor Farm is nature itself. The environment has been enhanced by a decade and a half of conservation, and is the perfect backdrop for your Shropshire glamping farm holiday. Bluebell woods and wild garlic flourish alongside Kerry Hill sheep, deer, horses, goats, pigs, chickens and the farm dogs. Come and meet Mouse the dog, Dormouse the miniature Shetland and Goose the Clumber Spaniel! Unfortunately, guests’ pets can’t come along and meet them as the farm is home to many birds.
You will find the farm larder in the wainhouse, where you can order fresh bread and the farm’s zero-food-miles venison, pigeon, pheasant and duck, plus Kevan’s ready-cooked meals. Both the wainhouse and the new summer house overlook the hot tub and lake, and make perfect luxury camping venues for special parties big or small. If you want to explore the area further, beyond the farm are the Medieval towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow.
