The Boathouse sleeps two to four guests and is ideally located on the edge of the Shropshire Union Canal, set within the grounds of the Wharf Tavern, a popular pub serving food and cask ale. Available for weekly and short breaks all year round, The Boathouse is just twenty miles from Shrewsbury, Ironbridge and The Potteries and a great holiday retreat for a family holiday or a romantic break for two.
Shropshire boasts some of the finest scenery in the country and this is an ideal place from which to explore it. Take a leisurely stroll on the towpath along the Shropshire Union Canal, or cycle the lanes and explore the surrounding villages. You can even hire a canal narrow boat from Norbury Wharf for the day.
Coarse fishing is available on the doorstep (by day ticket) or fly fishing approximately four miles away at the local trout fishery. For those who enjoy golf the championship golf courses at Hawkstone Park, Market Drayton and Hill Valley are all within easy reach.
Market Drayton, the home of Gingerbread, is five miles away with its popular street Market every Wednesday and an indoor and outdoor swimming pool. The attractive town of Newport is seven miles away and offers a great selection of specialist shops, stocked with tempting mouth watering goodies and gifts.
There are plenty of glorious gardens nearby including Wollerton Old Hall, the breathtaking Hawkstone Park Follies, the National Trust property Attingham Park and Dorothy Clive Garden (who serve a delicious cream tea and tasty snacks in their tearoom).
Come and explore the picturesque Shropshire Countryside - you won't want to leave!
