About the location

BETTISFIELD

Ellesmere 5.5 miles; Oswestry 13.5 miles; Shrewsbury 17 miles.

The small rural village of Bettisfield stands on the edge of the Welsh Marches and straddles the pretty Llangollen Canal. Situated within driving distance from the three delightful Shropshire towns of Ellesmere, Witchurch and Wem, Bettisfield is in a unique location as it adjoins the very large Whixall Mosses (an SSSI), which is one of Britain’s largest peat bogs and is a place of great interest to nature lovers. Wem, home of the infamous Jeffrey's “the hanging” Judge and renowned for its real ales and the modern Sweet Pea flower, has provided a central point for local trade since Saxon times and its weekly market still holds this tradition, attracting visitors from across the county. The beautiful town of Ellesmere, with its Medieval streets littered with Georgian and Victorian houses and quaint, half-timbered buildings, is situated less than six miles away, amidst an area known as Shropshire's Lakeland and offers an abundance of shops, pubs and fine restaurants. Take a boat trip across the magnificent glacial mere out onto the Llangollen canal or enjoy a leisurely stroll through the picturesque Aboretum and Cremorne Gardens with its wonderful wildlife and scenic walks. Discover a variety of NT properties and gardens, medieval Shrewsbury and Ludlow, the fascinating museums at Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site, or even a day trip to the Roman city of Chester. A lovely location in a beautiful part of Britain.
