The Owner Says

Here, at Hamperley Hideaways we’ve created a space just for you. With our Wild Camping, you are not booking your own camping pitch, you are booking the whole field to yourselves. So, no worrying about the neighbours being too loud - with no-one else around in sight nor sound, this area of outstanding natural beauty is all yours to enjoy. And with our contact free check in,  you can spend the whole trip in peace and quiet.

Each pitch is set up with a picnic table, fire pit and compost toilet. So all you need to do is pick your favourite spot and bring your tent, and get yourselves set up! With, our Family Friendly pitch, please be aware that there may be a short 2 minute walk to your pitch, as we cannot always promise that you'll be able to drive right up to your spot. 

Whilst we think these spots are fantastic and great for those who love the outdoors we know they may not be to everyone's tastes or requirements. There is no running water, electric, or flush able toilets - if you want a little more comfort in your break we recommend having a look at our Glamping Spaces, or our Holiday Cottages.

About Hamperley Hideaways

Suitable For

Glampers, campers, campervans, groups – yes. Motorhomes, caravans dogs – no.


The campsite is in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and in the shadow of The Long Mynd, one of Shropshire’s most-famous hills. There are footpaths and bridleways across this heathland ridge which stretches seven miles long and three miles wide. The whole area is popular for walking, horseriding and mountain-biking. You can walk straight from your pitch out on to the Long Mynd. Alternatively head six miles to the Carding Mill Valley visitor centre where there’s parking, information and a tea room. You can also swim in the Carding Mill Reservoir. Its on the edge of the market town of Church Stretton, which is worth a visit and a good place to pick up supplies. The market town of Ludlow, with its medieval streets, ruined castle and river bank, is 15 miles south and a popular place to visit. En route you pass the little town of Craven Arms where you might want to stop off to visit the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre (01588 676060) and Stokesay Castle (0370 333 1181), one of the best-preserved fortified medieval manor houses in the UK. Shrewsbury, the attractive county town of Shropshire, is under 20 miles from Hamperley Hideaways.

Food & Drink

The Station Inn at Marshbrook (01694 781208) is under two miles from Hamperley Hideaways. The Ragleth Inn (01694 722711) and The Green Dragon (01694 722925), both in Little Stretton, are a little further but also recommended. Church Stretton has plenty of shops, pubs and cafes and a farmers’ market on Thursdays and Saturdays.

From start to finish, the stay at Hamperley Hideaways was an absolute pleasure. The pitches, completely separated from each other (each equipped with table and fire pit 👍👍which is fab) will allow you to have a one off experience. Spectacular views, super friendly host, fantastic facilities which also include compost toilets nearby make it a worthwhile place to visit and revisit! Most definitely recommended!

We had a reunion of friends and couple of kids after all the COVID separation, in 2 campervans and 2 tents. Ryan was so helpful and communicative all the way through the booking. It is a private and beautiful site, with great walks from the tents. We barbequed, played rounders, sat by the fire and had a brilliant relaxing time

Amazing views, total tranquility....

We absolutely loved our stay in the Campervan pitch . It far exceeded our expectations. We couldn't believe the views and the space! We arrived and set up by the picnic table and sat and looked at the Long Mynd in the glorious sunshine. What a treat to be able to effectively camp in total isolation but with a portaloo at the edge of the field! Take everything you need ( including loads of water) , then you can cook, relax, have a fire, look at the stars, watch the sheep without moving! All with amazing views of the Long Mynd. Had a great chat with Chris who told us a great walk up the Long Mynd ( so much quieter than leaving from Church Stretton). Loved it so much we are coming back next weekend. "Wild" camping at its best. New favourite campsite....


We had the family pitch two grandkids absolutely loved it. Hunting for bears in the woods and toasting marshmallows on the fire. We’ll be back

Getting There

From the A49, between Shrewsbury and Ludlow (both around 15 miles away) take the B4370 towards Bishop’s Castle. After just over a mile, turn right. After a further half mile, you will reach a crossroads where you see Hamperley Farm; turn right here and after another half a mile, turn right again, through a gate and on to a stone track. This will lead you to the car park which will be signposted on the left.

There’s a railway station in Church Stretton, five miles from site. From there you can take a bus to Little Stretton and then follow quiet country lanes for the final two miles on foot to reach the campsite.
