The Island Meadow Experience
Once you have arrived at our park, you will be drawn straight into the tranquil Island Meadow holiday experience, where its time to relax and take in the exquisite English countryside and all it has to offer.
There is a natural mill pond and weir which are lined with mature trees, offering great coarse fishing, free of charge to all guests.
All areas of the park are flat and close-mown, making the island a perfect centre for bird watching, walking, cycling or just relaxing.
The park offers 3 – star amenities, including disabled facilities, heated toilet and shower block and a well-stocked licensed shop.
By taking a short stroll through the Mill Meadow and the churchyard of St.John’s, the marriage place of Shakespeare’s parents, will bring you to the fifteenth century inn, the Kings Head, Aston Cantlow. Here you will find a traditional, recently refurbished inn, offering real ales, bar snacks and fine dining cuisine. (There is no clubhouse or restaurant on site). Our village Club welcomes all our visitors, be prepared for a warm welcome and regular social goings on!
Interestingly, in 1086, the Domesday Book valued the Mill at 8 shillings and 5 sticks of eels!
The village of Aston Cantlow is named after the De Cantilupe family who settled here after the Norman Conquest.
What a lovely well maintained site. Plenty of bird song with a lovely bubbling stream that passes the window, where ducks and swans paddle happily along. A wonderfully relaxing holiday.
