Hopton Court Estate - shropshire
We are thrilled to be able to introduce you to our new partners at Amber's Bell Tent Camping at Hopton Court Estate.
The Riddings is a clearing of pine and deciduous woodland which makes up part of the huge 1800 acres Hopton Court Estate - a stunning part of the country, with a mixture of park and forest, set on the edge of the Shropshire Hills, a marked Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Nestled within the enclosed woodland, the trees offer shelter to our campers, a sense of being surrounded by nature, and with it a sense of being cut off from the modern world. This 6 acre hidden haven is home to 6 of our comfortable and stylish bell tents, leaving plenty of space to spread out and enjoy your own little patch of wilderness. Sleep to the sound of the swishing branches of the trees. Children can run free and enjoy the wild space, enjoy the rope swings hung from the oaks, gather cones from the pines for their fires.
Camping with us here at Hopton Court Estate offers an opportunity to press pause on life for a while. Unplug from modern life and recharge your spiritual battery.
