The Lake District’s beautiful countryside inspired Beatrix Potter to write her famous series of books. Tales of Peter Rabit...
If you enjoy a pint or two after a long day’s hike, then pretty Cleobury Mortimer, nestling on the side of scenic Clee Hills, is the place for you! With plenty of inns and pubs, the town’s microbrewery, Hobson’s, has been quietly producing award-winning ale for a number of years. Indeed, their ‘twisted spire’ beer takes its name from the town’s most famous landmark – the crooked spire of the parish church that dominates the local skyline.
Despite having town status, Cleobury Mortimer is a vision of rural England – a genteel market town with local shops, a lovely river and a scenic location; it is a great place to escape from city life. Nestling deep in the rolling Shropshire countryside, there is great walking and cycling on the doorstep, and vibrant Ludlow, with its castle and gourmet food shops, is just a short drive away. Many other heritage attractions are within easy reach, such as Powis and Stokesay castles.
