The Owner Says

Wild conTENTment allows you to pitch up and enjoy the outdoors without feeling like your on a campsite. Canal-side pitches where each has its own large area to allow that feeling of space that wild camping offers, but with the safety net of optional extras which make for a more luxurious time. The field has mown areas for hours of fun on tree swings, playing rounders, log piles and a stream.
All pitches come with fire-pit, parking alongside, running water and use of a toilet - in this case a flushing loo within Beryl. Ever had a bath in a field? Now you can! Beryl comes with towels and luxury toiletries for use during your stay.
A short walk away lies a shop which stocks most essentials, and there is a pub within walking distance. It's a great spot for cycling and walking. There is access to a fridge and freezer at the family house.

Getting There

From Oswestry head towards Welshpool on the A483: Stay on the road for just under four miles until you come to Llynclys Crossroads (large green road sign on your left, pub on your right). Turn left. Travel through the housing area and when you come to the first little crossroads (with a chapel) take the turning right down Long Lane.

From the A5 Shrewsbury: Stay on the A5 past Shrewsbury until you come to the Wolfshead roundabout at the end of the short section of the dual carriageway. Take the first turning left for the B4396 signposted for Knockin. Travel through Knockin (looking out for the famous Knockin Shop) and stay on this road (do not fork right) for about two miles. Go over the little bridge and after a further three miles take the second turning left which is on the little crossroads, down the road named Long Lane. 

The nearest train station is Gobowen, six miles away. From there it would be sensible to take a (pre-booked) taxi for the last part of the journey.
