We are incredibly proud of our team here are Cartref. We wouldn't have an award-winning site without them!

Cartref Caravan and Camping is owned by Chris and Gordon, Shropshire based business partners for over 35 years, who purchased the site in 2016. 

​Cartref has been a caravan and camping site since the 1970s. When the site was purchased, we wanted to put our stamp on it. Year on year we have evolved the site and continue to do so to always improve the site and our visitor experience. 

At Cartref we have a fantastic team that is always on hand to help out fellow campers be it supporting with putting up that new awning or recommending the best walks and local attractions.  ​

"Cartref " translated from Welsh to English quite simply means "Home". Whilst here we wish for you all to feel in a relaxed home from home environment.

We look forward to welcoming you to our friendly, quiet, and peaceful site very soon.
