CLIVE AND GRINSHILL
Hill Farm is a stone's throw from Corbet Wood and Grinshill.
Situated on the slopes of the Grinshill sandstone ridge there are paths and viewpoints which offer excellent panoramic views towards Shrewsbury, the Shropshire Hills and the Welsh Borders.
The villages of Clive and Grinshill are dominated by Grinshill Hill, which rises to 630 ft above sea level.
North Shropshire is home to parklands and canals, meres and mosses, pretty little market towns and beautiful countryside.
Hill Farm is a stone's throw from Corbet Wood and Grinshill, with scenic walks and cycle routes, graced by stunning views of the nearby Hawkstone Park, Shropshire Hills and Welsh mountain peaks. This beautiful area is famous for its ancient mines and natural stone production and is a worldwide discovery site for dozens of Megaliths, dating as far back as 7000 BC. Your walks can start from the doorstep, through woodland, following the Shropshire Way.
The picturesque village of Clive rests eight miles from historic Shrewsbury and the Severn Way.
There is a local shop and pub in Hadnall, two miles away, and a train station in Yorton, a mile from Hill Farm. A regular bus service to Shrewsbury operates from Clive.
We are a stone's throw from The Shropshire Way and a short drive to the Shropshire Hills.
ELLESMERE AND COLEMERE
Ellesmere is a traditional Shropshire market town with medieval streets, Georgian houses and half-timbered buildings. The Mere is the largest and most spectacular of the nine glacial meres in the area. The Llangollen Canal runs through the area.
Hawkstone Park and Follies is an extraordinary mix of natural landscape and the artificial, developed by generations of the Hill family who lived at Hawkstone Hall. The Gothic Arch on Grotto Hill is well worth a look.
Shrewsbury is Shropshire’s county town and is perfectly placed in the centre of our rural county. Shrewsbury’s town centre is almost an island, encircled by a meandering loop of the River Severn. Within its loop are distinctive churches, Shrewsbury Castle, beautiful timber-framed houses and a sweeping riverside parkland known as the Quarry or Quarry Park. Attingham Park makes an excellent day out for all ages.
