Gorgeous glamping on Walcot Hall Estate - yurts, showman's caravans, fire truck, shepherd's hut & gypsy caravan sleeping 2-4 nr Bishop's Castle.

Walcot Hall is set within the beautiful Shropshire Hills, close to Bishop's Castle and offers a range of quirky glamping and hut stays (plus 14 self catering cottages) sleeping from 2-4 people.

Located on the Walcot Hall Estate this site benefits from an arboretum, lake with rowing boats, lawn for a spot of croquet plus the option to try horse-riding. With all this on your doorstep there is no need to go any further! However the area offers a wealth of attractions, including historic castles and quaint market villages aplenty.

Back on site you can choose to stay in one of 4 yurts which sleep from 2-4 people. Choose the 'After the Gold Rush Yurt' (which sleeps 4) to enjoy views over a lake style pool with use of a personal rowing boat! All yurts have a wood burning stove, a double bed, seating area, plus a single/double ring gas stove, perfect for that morning cuppa! An old hen house has been converted into a WC with a flushing toilet and sink, plus there is a shower block on site for guests use and a small yet fully functioning communal kitchen area. The yurts have a shared area where you can enjoy a game of table tennis or badminton or simply relax around the campfire! Each yurt also has its own BBQ so you can enjoy dining al fresco whilst taking in the fresh Shropshire air before enjoying a spot of star gazing with your loved one.

Stay in one of 2 Showman's Caravans, the green offers stunning views over the Shropshire Hills and Long Mynd with a traditional wooden style, whilst the red is nestled deep in the arboretum and has a traditionally hand painted interior. Both sleep 2 people and have access to the communal bathroom facilities.

The Shepherd's Hut sleeps 4 in a kingsize double bed with 2 individual bunks above it, perfect for the younger members of the family. It is located in a clearing and has a fresh yet traditional interior design to it.

If you are feeling adventurous then chose to stay in the Gypsy Caravan. Only accesible on foot and with no running water or electric, this is a real tranquil getaway for those wishing to disconnect from the world. It sleeps 2 adults, plus there is space for a small child. Relax around the campfire and reconnect with nature and with each other.

Last but definitely not least, choose the Fire truck! The smallest but most quirky of the collection, the Fire Truck features a comfy double bed and vintage style decor. Soak up the romance in this forest location with just the light of the lanterns by which to see your loved one.
