Rolling Hills Holidays
Skelton, Clun, Craven Arms, Shropshire, SY7 8NH
Set on a farm in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this brand new pair of glamping roundhouses was originally created as a handy stop-off point for walkers on the Offa’s Dyke path. The national trail passes a mere 300 metres away and the wooden, yurt-like cabins, set on a hillside with sheep-dotted views down the valley, mean you never need to leave the vistas of the trail behind. It hasn’t taken long, however, for Rolling Hills to reach a far wider audience. From families wanting a space where kids can run riot outdoors, to couples hoping for a quiet rural retreat, this modern hideaway in the hills has an instant appeal.
Fronted by a gravel terrace, where guests can sit out and enjoy the view, the two roundhouses each sleep up to four people, with a large king-sized bed and a pair of futons that can be converted into single beds. Above, a circular window allows you to peep out at the night sky from the comfort of your abode, while a wood-burner keeps things snug. A wooden-clad communal building, meanwhile, separates the two structures, housing inside a modern kitchen that all guests can use. It also has an excellent new shower room to accompany the roundhouses’s individual, en-suite loos.
While each roundhouse has a flat-screen television, the real entertainment at this site comes from its more natural assets. Within a 50-acre field, with a small stream running along one side, the area offers ample exploring opportunity for children, while, for any glamper that brings along an OS map, a world of adventure awaits – linking up with the Offa’s Dyke trail or joining one of the local footpaths for a circular route is always a good start. By car, the sleepy little town of Clun is an enjoyable place for a pint or picnic, with its 15th-century stone bridge and ruined castle creating a picturesque framework for the rest of the town, while nearby Bishops Castle has a clutch of museums and a market in the town hall most Saturdays.
The Owner SaysRolling hills holidays is a small glamping destination tucked away in South Shropshire next to the Welsh border in an unspoiled valley surrounded by hills. A local family wanted to create a unique glamping site with roundhouses to share their love of the location with others. Rolling hills holidays is where adults can escape and find peace and children can get back to nature. The site is within a 50 acre field with a small stream running through it completely surrounded by farm animals, wild birds, rabbits, badgers and even deer at times, who go about their daily business. We wish to preserve the peaceful nature of the location so we all can continue to make fond memories just like we do with our family.
