Shropshire is a beautiful county un spoilt and undiscovered. Perched on the Shropshire/Welsh border (the Marches) we are ideally located to explore the county of Shropshire and the country of Wales.
The small market town of Oswestry (5 miles) offers everything that you will need. It has a wealth of small bespoke shops a weekly market and farmers market and a host of eateries and pubs, including the superb, atmospheric family run "Walls" restaurant.
Across the border into Wales (8 miles) is Llangollen, home to the famous International Music Eisteddfod. Situated by the spectacular tumbling waters of the river Dee this town has so much to offer with its horse drawn canal trips ,antique shops and river side pubs and restaurants.
The beautiful county town of Shrewsbury is 40 mins drive away with its cobbled streets and ancient buildings, well worth a day trip.
Chirk Aqueduct and viaduct (a world Heritage Site) are within walking distance of the site. At Chirk Marina you can hire a barge for the day and explore a stretch of The Shropshire Union Canal, one of the most spectacular and scenic canals in Britain.
Offas Dyke Path
This National Trail is just up the lane (15mins walk) .It offers unlimited walking in both directions in some of the country's most un spoilt countryside.
Again within walking distance is this exciting National Trust property with beautiful gardens and stunning vistas.
A little further into Wales (an hours drive from the site) is the majestic Pistyll Rhaeadr (one of the seven wonders of Wales). A scenic 20min drive from the lovely welsh village of Llanrhaedr ym Mochant this spectacular water fall is well worth a visit. There are walks from the falls to satisfy all tastes from short strolls to dramatic mountain treks.
