Places to visit

Grinshill Hill

There is a brilliant viewing point here and it is only about a 20 minute drive away from The Acorns. The car park is at the top so there is no climbing to do unless you want to explore the footpaths and more viewing points.

This viewing point is 2 minutes from the car park, see notice board for map of footpaths.

This is the place to visit on a clear day or if you need an evening stroll to watch the sun go down.

It can be combined with a visit to either the Moat or Sleap Airport, both within a few minutes drive from the Acorns!

The moat does breakfasts, lunch and afternoon teas and closes at four. It is upmarket but the service and food makes it well worth it. Great for coffee and cake as a special treat.

The cafe at Sleap Airport does all day breakfast and is a cheap and yummy menu. You can sit and watch the light aircraft as you eat. There is also a small airfield history museum. You can also book a flight too!

If you are a keen cyclist then the trails around here are beautiful.

We recommend to all our guests.

TOWNS

There are several large tourist towns nearby.

Chester and Shrewsbury are brimming with history and are worth a visit, just up the road! If you want a designer bargain stop off at Cheshire Oaks Shopping Outlet.

Ironbridge is famous for its museums and industrial history and is not too far away.

We also recommend Ludlow, Bishops Castle, there is a fantastic bakery and butchers at Much Wemlock, and our favourite for charity shops is Church Stretton ( we buy our bread from here ) and we eat here at Berry’s .

Llangollen is a popular river and canal tourist town an hour away. If you are a canal enthusiast then you must see the famous Telford Aquaduct too.
