Our broadband is at ‘rural speed’, so we’ve hard-wired the ethernet cable all the way to each pod to get the best available signal.

Interaction with guestsIan and Janet Kelly have run Birch Hill Farm – an award-winning 5-van caravan site for 21 years: voted ‘Best Small Site’ in the UK for 3 years running, and named as the Caravan Club ‘CL of the Year’, with prize awarded in the House of Commons. We diversified in 2019 to add luxury glamping pods – away from the caravans – yet still enjoying the same panoramic views that our regular guests return to share year after year. We live in the farmhouse - a short walk from the glamping pods, and we are usually available to assist if you need any local advice or holiday ideas. There is more information on our website.

Great glamping pod and very welcoming
We stayed in the meadow view glamping pod and loved it ! It had everything we needed and more . The owner was very welcoming and even advised on some nice days out during our stay. It is the best glamping holiday we have had and we will be back again in the future :)

About the neighbourhood
Archers' Meadow at Birch Hill Farm is a quiet hideaway in the heart of England, open summer and winter, with pleasant panoramic views across a wide expanse of green gently rolling hills. Ellesmere is a friendly quiet lakeside town that dates back to Saxon times. Ellesmere has car parks, shops, banks, pubs, restaurants, cafés, tea shops and a launderette. A good base for a short stay or longer holiday: we are just 2 miles from North Wales and within 20 minutes to about an hour you could be at one of four UNESCO World Heritage Sites or numerous castles, historic houses and National Trust properties. Our lane is on one of the main Land’s End to John o’Groats cycle routes and Ellesmere is a lovely spot for country walks and bird-watching.
Getting around
We are one mile from town and a 20 minute drive from the nearest railway station at Gobowen. Being realistic, a car is the easiest way to get here. Once you have arrived, there are plenty of footpaths and quiet country lanes for cycling.
Access
Car required
How to get there
Set in green rolling countryside, Birch Hill farmhouse is 1 mile North of Ellesmere in North Shropshire, just 2 miles from the North Wales border. For ease of access, please ensure that you enter our lane from the A528. Satellite Navigation For programming Satellite Navigation (SatNav), the Birch Hill Farm lane entrance is at: Postcode SY12 0LP or use the following GPS map co-ordinates: Grid Reference SJ 397365 Latitude 52:55:20N (52.9222), Longitude 2:54:09W (-2.9025) Google Maps show our lane being called ‘Ellesmere Lane’ (see map below), but this seems to be a ‘Google-ism’ – the lane is un-signed and local residents are not aware that Google has named it ‘Ellesmere Lane’. If you ask locals for directions, please make sure that you ask for Birch Hill, not Birch Hall – both are farmhouses but on opposite sides of Ellesmere. Our drive-way is more-or-less opposite a better-known farm called ‘Seven Sisters’ – many locals will have heard of ‘Seven Sisters’ (we just mention this in case you need to ask for directions – please note that Seven Sisters does not have a sign showing the farm name). On most SatNav systems, our postcode is centred on Seven Sisters. Address and postcode Mr & Mrs I G Kelly Birch Hill Farm The Cross Ellesmere SY12 0LP England We have a long farm drive - there is a turning circle by the farm house. There is free car parking on site.
