The Heart of England/Peak District
A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was “the quietest place under the sun” and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.
Bronington is a rural village in North Wales yet right on the borders with the English counties of Cheshire and Shropshire. There is so much on offer in this area - a 948 hectare nature reserve with lovely walks and plentiful wildlife is in the village, while the towns of Whitchurch and Ellesmere are close by. The ten museums of the Ironbridge Gorge are a short drive away, as are the National Trust properties of Attingham Park, Errdig and Chirk Castle. The historic city of Chester, with its renowned zoo and good shopping, is within reach, as are Ludlow and Shrewsbury.
