A really lovely break with a difference!
Castle Farm is lovely - the pods are very cosy - we stayed in Bluebell and we couldn't fault it. The beds were comfy and it is so pretty. As seasoned campers it was nice to be provided with bedding and crockery/cutlery! Our kids loved sitting in front of the fire pit in the evening and our dog loved everyhing, especially the field where she could run off lead. The location is great - close to Ellesmere and LLangollen. Our hosts were lovely - they came to say hi and bye and were nearby if we needed them. We would recommend to anyone, and wil definitly go back again.
A fabulous stay and a very lovely site.
The Pod was lovely and cosy and warm. We took out dog too who enjoyed himself very much. The facilities were excellent and clean. I would definately visit again and would recommend it. Jane, Neil and Jake the dog x
Lovely quite site
Myself and my wife have just got back from a two night stay at Castle Farm and we very much enjoyed our stay, a small secluded peaceful site in a lovely countryside location, Helen (the owner) came to introduce herself on our arrival and then left us to enjoy our stay, we took up Helens offer of a fire pit, fire lighters, matches, kebab sticks and marshmallows for just £20 which we thought good value. The toilets and showers are very clean and tidy. There are plenty of lovely places to visit nearby, Llangollen and Ellesmere to name a couple. Overall an enjoyable stay.
Lovely little setup
We stayed recently over the bank holiday weekend. Helen (the owner) introduced herself when we arrived but then left us to our own devices. The covid setup, giving us private use of the male shower block was excellent, the facilities are first class and would not be out of place on a much larger site! The pods are spacious and well equipped. Super warm with electric radiators. The site is on a lovely country. Tucked out of the way. We felt welcomed and at ease. Our dog also enjoyed the freedom to wander about. I would highly recommend !
Delightful little setup
We recently stayed over the bank holiday weekend. Helen ( the owner) introduced herself when we arrived but left us to our own devices during the stay. The covid setup, giving us our own private use of the mens shower block was great. The facilities for a small site are first class and would not be out of place on a much larger site. The pods are a great size and surprisingly spacious, well equipped and super warm with the electric radiators. The site is in a lovely little country lane setting, out of the way. We felt welcomed and at ease during our stay. We also took our dog, who was free to wander about. Highly recommended!
Fantastic family weekend
Myself, my husband and our two children aged 8 and 6 stayed in Bluebell Shepherds Hut. The accommodation was lovely and well equipped. It has crockery, cups and glasses plus a fridge and microwave. We only needed to take clothes toiletries and a portable bbq. The site is small and very well kept and the showers were spotless with lots of hot water. The area is peaceful and relaxing with wonderful views. None of us wanted to leave. Thank you Helen for your wonderful hospitality and we will see you again.
We stayed here for 2 nights this weekend, it was spotless abs due to current restrictions we had our own shower/toilet. The hot tub was excellent very clean, lovely and hot and also spotless. The place was so peaceful with beautiful scenery. Helen the owner was lovely, she came to check all was ok and if we needed anything and left us alone to enjoy the peace. She was only a short walk away if we did👍🏼 I would recommend a stay and we’re looking forward to going back .

Thank you so much for the lovely review, We are so please you enjoyed yourselves, you have certainly had some beautiful weather too , for the escape from lockdown! Thank You for staying with us. Helen
Can't recommend this place enough! Hosts were really helpful and added little personal touches when we arrived. Felt really safe and clean too in the current climate, with every pod having their own toilet/shower facilities. Location is great too, with beautiful places to visit only a short drive away. A well needed break, thank you so much.
Wonderful weekend in beautiful surroundings
We are a family of 4, two adults and two children aged 4 and 8. The Oak pod had everything we needed. The kettle and toaster was perfect for us to make breakfast and enjoy on the decked area in the morning. The pod was immaculately clean and even had tea, coffee, hot chocolate and milk ready for our arrival. Things had been put into place to allow for social distancing. We had a toilet and shower block to ourselves. We enjoyed evenings around the fire pit toasting marshmallows and there was plenty of space around the pods for our boys to play. It was just what our family needed, time together in beautiful surroundings. A huge thank you to Helen - we will definitely be back!
Me and friend just returned from a lovely 3 nights in Beech pod, castle farm. Due to Covid regulations we were slightly concerned about how the trip would go down but Helen was lovely and incredibly accommodating, giving us the entire women's bathroom area so we could have privacy and safety. The pod was comfy, warm and had al the facilities we needed. The best part was paying extra for a campfire which we could purchase more wood if we ran out, the highlight was watching the fire burn throughout the evening with a glass of wine. We loved the nearby lake of Ellesmere where you can hire your own rowing boat, really fun! And a beautiful drive to Wales to see the waterfall was a definite must. We will be back! Thank you for an incredible trip.
Castle Farm is situated in a beautiful area, total peace and quiet. We stayed in the willow pod with a hot tub and my god what an amazing experience., we were fortunate enough to have descent weather so sitting in the hot tub whilst dark underneath crystal clear skies was fantastic. The pod itself is comfy, clean and has tea sugar coffee hot choc marshmallows and dog treats which I think is a lovely touch and much appreciated. The safety measures put in place due to covid are brilliant, each pod has its own allocated shower/toilet block so no sharing with other glampers. For all your essentials, there is Stans Superstore just down the road and he literally sells everything. I would definitely recommend staying here, we can't wait to come back. Helen is on the ball, nothing is to much mither for her and we cannot thank her enough for her help. Thank you Helen, we will be back.
Great Birthday get-a-way
I Booked a weekend at the Willow Pod for my partners Birthday. We have a new pup therefore needed somewhere dog friendly. What a find. Great location. Peaceful. Very prompt communication from Helen. The hot tub was a good added extra and we enjoyed our marshmellows on the firepit. Pontcysyllte aqueduct and the town of Llangollen are worth a visit. Thanks for our wonderful stay.
A wonderful place to stay
Castle farm is beautiful and in a lovely area to explore. The pods and facilities are clean and have everything you need. It was perfect for us to relax and my son to Play. The dogs loved it too. A perfect spot for the whole family to get away in a lovely, friendly environment.

Thank you for taking the time to do a review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your special family time here. Helen
We enjoyed a 2 night stay in the willow pod, the pod and all the facilities were spotless, the site was beautiful with enough space between the pods that you are completely private. Helen was quick and efficient replying to my emails and you can tell great care is taken preparing the pods for your arrival. We had a very relaxing and peaceful weekend here for my birthday, can’t fault at all and have already booked my next visit.
Lovely place to stay
We stayed in the Bluebell Shepherds Hut and had a lovely time. The double pull out bed could be split easily in to two separate beds for out children. The beds were comfortable and it was great having the option to hire a fire pit, we all enjoyed toasting things.
Perfect Birthday Weekend
We had a lovely break away for my daughter’s birthday. We stayed in the Willow pod with the hot tub which was amazing & hot on arrival. It was a beautiful location and so peaceful. The pod was very clean and comfortable. We had a lovely walk along the country lanes and went for a meal at the Boathouse, which was amazing. We also visited the famous Stans and wished we had one by us, it was the best. Helen was so efficient with her emails. We will definitely be staying again in the future. Thank you
Had a lovely three nights great facilities on the camp and loads of places to visit . Will definitely be back ☺️
Cosy & comfortable
Beautiful, serene location with a lovely pub and lots of great places to visit within 10-20 minutes away. The pod was immaculate, and suprisingly snug and warm at night. We stayed in the Ash pod, and found the bed very comfortable and perfect for a good night's sleep after all the country air! Definitely worth a visit if you're looking to escape the day-to-day and relax.
A lovely, peaceful place to stay with excellent facilities
Great location, easy to find, friendly welcome, excellent facilities and comfortable pod. Definitely worth a visit if you want to get away from it all :)
A lovely peaceful stay
My husband, dog and I stayed in December and had a lovely peaceful stay and were warm and cosy despite the time of year. The pod was warm and welcoming when we arrived and the owners had even left some tea, coffee, fresh milk and dog biscuits for us on our arrival. They also left a note about some local events happening the weekend we were there which was a lovely touch. The facilities were clean and tidy. Couldn't really have asked for any more
Me, my partner and our miniature daschund stayed in willow pod for two nights and I couldn’t of asked for anything better. Was quiet and relaxing definitely a well needed break from reality. The pod was clean and worth the amount paid to stay, and the hot tub was warm for arrival so we could jump in straight in. The toilet and shower blocks were a couple of seconds walk away and they were modern and always kept clean, it was lovely.
Glamping in the sticks
Quiet park (4 pods and a shepherds hut in a field). Only one other pod being used while we were there, but the layout suggests even if they were all full it would be quiet. Great (new and clean) toilet and shower facilities, 1 min walk from the pod. We stayed in Willow, the Pod with a hot tub- amazing ;) The hot tub was hot on arrival so we could jump straight in! Easy access on arrival. Will definitely be back!
We had 2 nights booked in oak pod. It was all very clean and comfortable. The facilities were also clean and better than most campsites.It was excellent value for money and in a beautiful location!
Beautiful, peaceful haven
Amazing place. We hired the whole of the site for a birthday celebration and it was simply perfect. Helen the owner was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish, was lovely meeting her and her two dogs :) Loved how each pod had a kettle and fridge, plenty of sleeping space. The hot tub was the icing on the cake. Would love to return and try the new addition (caravan). Excellent local area
We had a lovely time at castle farm. The cabins were clean and tidy, shower block was also very clean and tidy. Was in a beautiful part of the U.K. I would recommend to anyone, if they are looking for a nice relaxing get away. There were shops close by, and different things to explore.

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay, thank you for taking time to do a review. Helen
Lovely little break away for my partners birthday. We stayed in the Willow pod with the hot tub which was perfect! Beautiful location, very peaceful and tranquil. We loved the pod, clean and comfortable, all that we hoped for. Facilities were clean and looked brand new. Helen was super efficient, replied straight away to my emails. We had a day in Llangollen just a 20 min drive away which was good. Would highly recommend we will definitely be staying again. Thank you.

Hi Sarah, thank you for taking time to do a review, it is very much appreciated. So glad that you enjoyed the hot tub that Willow pod has, it is always great to relax in after a busy day. Thanks Helen
What a beautiful find
We have stayed at many campsites pods lodges etc and I must say this is one of the best the beds are comfortable beautiful location great value for money everything you need is in there and more will become a regular
Pod stay Oct 17
Great pods in a lovely setting. Went for a long walk, then off to the local for a bite to eat. There is a summer house near the pods, which was great for us as we hired 3 pods and went in there for a get together after. Also Helen leaves tea, coffee and milk in the fridge which is a nice touch. We'll be back
Birthday surprise for my fiancée
Had a wonderful weekend for my partners birthday. Arrived Thursday 18th October for 2nights Took the glamping experience to a whole new level with the hot tub and comfortable bed in the willow pod. The pod itself was so warm and comfortable. Will definitely be recommending it as such a quiet and peaceful location.
Perfect birthday break
Me and my fiancée had an amazing time in willow pod. Helen was very quick responding to any emails and was very accommodating, if you want to get away from everything but still have lovely villages nearby then this is the place! Best built pods we have stayed in and the shower and toilet block were immaculate with red hot water for showers!! Hot tub just tops it all off perfectly. Thanks so much for making her birthday so special!! We will be back!!
What a perfect place to stay, spotlessly clean, lovely welcoming hosts, comfy well equipped pods, with the added treat of a hot tub. Perfect for couples and lots of space for the kids to play. Can't wait for our next visit
Just had our stay at the pods and they were absolutely fantastic!! Cannot recommend them enough! The facilities are above 5 stars, they are soooo lovely and clean. Plus the pods have everything you need! The best pods I have ever stayed in! We will be coming back again!Highly recommended!!!
Will be going back!!
We needed a 'dog friendly' venue at very short notice and found Castle Farm via Dog Friendly Britain. To keep it brief the venue is very rural so great for walks with dogs if you have them - our 3 had a great time! You are only about 10 minutes drive from a supermarket in either direction so no need to panic about supplies for all! The 'pods' are very good quality and we were so impressed with the insulative properties that we have booked a stay with our dogs between Christmas & New Year - watch this space!! The toilet/shower and associated facilities are all new and we can happily give them 10/10 - no question! What I really like about the 'pods' is the laminate floor and wipe clean vinyl covered memory foam mattresses - after cleaning there is no history of us staying there which is important to anyone that may have an allergy to dogs........
Great place - Aug 17
We recently enjoyed a stay at this lovely site for 2 nights as a group of 28. The non campers occupied the 4 quaint pods which were spotless, cosy yet roomy enough for family of 4, all equipped with small fridge, kettle & microwave & welcome supplies of milk, tea coffee. The site was spotless, in a peaceful location with enough space for the kiddies, pets (& adults) to play. The toilet/shower block was a hop & skip away from the pods, very clean & modern & further cleaned during our stay and there is a welcome oudoor undercover washing up area with fridge/freezer. The owners were very helpful & quickly attended to any calls for assistance. Would definitely return & recommend this site. Only suggestion would be a have an outdoor fire pit to sit around as U.K. summer nights are often chilly....
Had a lovely glamping 2 nights away.
Stayed for two nights. So very impressed with everything. All brand new. Pod was so well equipped. Would most deffinately stay there again. Would reccommend to others to try this place if you haven't been glamping before. In a lovely very quiet location out in the country.
Fantastic place, definitely going back!
First time glamping so didn't know what to expect but lovely place in beautiful rural setting and luxury accommodation has guaranteed we will be going back. New pod, spacious and so warm and quiet. Mattresses thick and plenty of storage. Well lit with fridge, kettle and microwave, free Wi-Fi and plenty of electrical sockets. Good facilities , lovely shower block with washing area with washing machine if needed. Lots of hot water , dog friendly and owner was great , so kind , left milk in fridge and gave us lots of advise about the area.
I stayed in Oak pod with my Husband and my dog, Bertie. We loved the location, it was quiet and peaceful and there was a field for Bertie to run around in. The pod was lovely and comfortable to sleep in. There are lots of things to do in the area, we enjoyed a walk around Colemere and a lovely horse drawn canal boat ride in Llangollen. We will be returning in the near future.
Just had a fantastic break in Ash pod at this new glamping site. I have never stayed in a pod before so didn't know what to expect, however I thoroughly enjoyed it! The amazing experience was enhanced by great shower blocks, lovely location and genuinely kind owners. Recommended to so many friends and already booked a return visit!
Fantastic Glamping Stay
We stayed in the Oak pod for 2 nights (3 adults). The pod was spacious with great amenities. We have stayed in a pod before in a different area and this one was definitely a step up! The washrooms were clean and modern too. The owners were lovely and really seem like they care about their guests. Will definitely be recommending and hopefully come back myself one day!
Lovely accommodation in peaceful surroundings
My first time glamping & my partners 2nd, & this site didn't disappoint. Lovely quiet peaceful surroundings make for a relaxing stay. We stayed in Willow pod, all 4 pods are set in a large field with ample space between, with a picturesque dingle backdrop, the pod had everything we would need & was very clean. The toilet/ shower block is fab, modern & again very clean, along with washing machine large sinks for washing dishes, it is obvious the site is well maintained. Highly recommended & we will certainly return.
A wonderful relaxing break
We had a wonderful relaxing break with our dog in a very pretty and peaceful location. But with plenty to do close by. Will definitely return here
