Touring Caravan and Holiday Home Parks

Local Attractions

Bow House Country Park is ideally placed to explore the delights of South Shropshire and The Marches, including the neighbouring ancient market town of Bishop's Castle and larger centres of Shrewsbury and Ludlow. Real shopping in proper shops, lively street markets, antique markets, specialist food shops, art and craft galleries - all give retail therapy Shropshire style.

Built on a south-facing hill, Bishop's Castle has two museums, lots of lovely traditional shops and art galleries, not forgetting a good selection of pubs, some selling their own brew.

Bishop's Castle and neighbouring Church Stretton, known as ‘Little Switzerland’, are recognised as 'Walkers Are Welcome' towns and the Offa's Dyke Path, one of 12 designated National Trails, is within a short drive.

South Shropshire is renowned for its heavenly English Countryside, or the "Blue Remembered Hills" that Housman wrote about. A landscape of green golden valleys rising to dramatic hills and moorlands, Marcher Lords, concealed pagan rites and legends, castles, beautiful villages and tiny hamlets are all waiting to be discovered.

Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd are part of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a Site of Special Scientific Interest. They offer breath-taking views across Shropshire, Cheshire and the Black Mountains. Due to the Mynd’s dominance of the landscape, it’s one of the reasons why Church Stretton is often referred to as Little Switzerland.
