Our Inspector's view

Located within a peaceful area of beautiful countryside, this relaxing park is an ideal base for exploring historic Oswestry, Shrewsbury and mid-Wales. Set in 10-acre grounds which include a former sandstone quarry and spacious and lush grassed areas. Both indigenous and cultivated plants and mature trees of an arboretum quality combine to create an atmosphere of tranquillity. The River Perry also borders the park and with peace assured, the only distractions are the welcome ones of running water and birdsong. The cedar cabins are very well spaced to create optimum privacy, and all have the benefit of hot tubs; the interiors are luxuriously appointed with underfloor heating and quality furnishings and fixtures. A large bell tent is available for group activities such as meditation and yoga, plus there are free to use paddle boards, kayaks and electric bikes. A wildflower wilderness garden and communal tented kitchen is planned for late 2023. Dogs are welcome.

About the area

Discover Shropshire

Perhaps nowhere else in England will you find a county so deeply rural and with so much variety as Shropshire. Choose a clear day, climb to the top of The Wrekin, and look down on that ‘land of lost content’ so wistfully evoked by A E Housman. Peer through your binoculars and trace the course of Britain’s longest river as the Severn sweeps through the county, from the Breidden Hills to Wyre Forest, slicing Shropshire in two. To the north is a patchwork of dairy fields, hedgerows, copses and crops, broken at intervals by rugged sandstone ridges such as Grinshill or Nesscliffe, and dissected by a complex network of canals.

Spilling over the border into neighbouring Cheshire and North Wales is the unique meres and mosses country, with serenely smooth lakes glinting silver, interspersed with russet-tinged expanses of alder-fringed peat bog, where only the cry of the curlew disturbs the silence. South of the Severn lies the Shropshire Hills AONB. It’s only when you walk Wenlock Edge that you fully discover what a magical place it is – glorious woods and unexpectedly steep slopes plunge to innumerable secret valleys, meadows, streams and farmhouses, all tucked away, invisible from the outside world.
