Visit Whitchurch and Wem on your cottage holiday.
Leave time for a visit to historic Whitchurch on your Shropshire cottage holiday; it’s home to one of the world’s oldest clockmakers, JB Joyce, whose time pieces keep the watch on towers, churches and other public buildings across the globe. Learn more at the Heritage and Craft Centre, or enjoy shopping for local specialities and fresh local produce at the town’s regular Farmer’s Markets. The pleasant green space of Jubilee Park is the place to head out for a stroll; no less than five of the county’s long distance walks, including the Shropshire Way, begin here, whilst the Llangollen canal offers alternative short walks and cycles. Nearby, the north Shropshire markets towns of Ellesmere, Wem and Market Drayton offer a variety of attractions.
