A 15-MINUTE-DRIVE from this immaculate site will take you to the medieval town of Shrewsbury, or across the border and on your way to Snowdonia.

Last year saw the building of The Shed, offering breakfast baps, cream teas, pies, burgers and pizzas for pre-ordering, plus a new reception and shop to allow guests easier access. The bar, which has a new log-burner to keep things cosy in winter, will this year have a marquee added, for those preferring to remain outdoors.
