Visit Shropshire

Located in the tree-strewn, patchwork fields of North Shropshire, we are ideally placed for a staycation in a quintessentially English country garden away from the madding crowd.

There is plenty of choice for walkers and ramblers with a great network of rural pathways, including the nearby Shropshire Union Canal, the Shropshire Way, Jack Mytton Way and Offa’s Dyke National Trail. We have the nearby Wrekin for hill walkers, and towards the south is the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Shropshire, known as one of the cradles of the Industrial Revolution, boasts historical treasures like Ironbridge, located near Goldstone. If you’re a transport enthusiast, you’ll find the Severn Valley Railway and RAF Cosford Museum in close proximity as well.

For wildlife lovers, there are many opportunities to see significant and rare species at locations, including the meres and mosses of Ellesmere and heath and moorland around the Long Mynd, StiperStones and Clee Hills. 

Within a ten-mile radius, guests can explore the ‘golden garden triangle’, including the historic Hodnet Hall Gardens, Wollerton Old Hall Gardens and the Dorothy Clive Garden, all open on a Sunday. David Austin Roses and Trentham Gardens are also within proximity.

Explore the medieval county town of Shrewsbury – the birthplace of Charles Darwin, or travel just over the border to nearby Stoke-on-Trent, the birthplace of Josiah Wedgwood and visit the historic Potteries.
