Cranberry Moss Camping and Caravan Site, Oswestry, SY10 8DY

To Find Site:- Once past Shrewsbury continue on A5 towards Oswestry. At end of dual carriageway take first left roundabout onto B4396 signed for Knockin and campsite can be seen ahead on the left.

This campsite seems no longer to be part of the C&CC but is now operating as an independent campsite since our visit.

This campsite is situated just off the main A5 about between Shrewsbury and Oswestry. It is not a large site having some 65 pitches set out around gravelled access roads. There is a mix of hardstanding and grass pitches, most having an open aspect. The site is open all year and non-members are accepted. Electric points are convenient to the pitches and are rated at 16amps and use CEE17 blue connectors. There is one toilet block which is functional rather than luxurious. The building also contains laundry and dishwash facilities and the chemical toilet disposal point. Next to the toilet block is the motorhome service point. It only has a small drain point but should be wide enough to use with vans with wastes points on either side of the vehicle. Water and waste water points are dotted around the site. Near to Reception is what is called “The Barn” which is a multi-use building where events are held and it also has a TV and sitting area, a useful place for tent campers in wet weather. Reception sells a few essentials. Site wide WiFi is available and free, it seems to offer a reasonable signal as well. There is no on site play facilities for children so perhaps not as child friendly as other sites. Pitches near the front of the site may suffer from road noise but this is usually during the day time.

This site is conveniently place to visit both Oswestry and Shrewsbury and also into North Wales. For those that don’t have, or perhaps would prefer not to use their own transport there are a couple of bus services from immediately outside the campsite. Both offer an hourly service from Monday to Saturday. For shopping there are several supermarkets in Oswestry including a Morrisons next to the bus station and a Sainsburys. Oswestry is a nice town to wander around and when you want a rest go down to Cae Glas Park for a sit in the park.
