The rural hamlet of Asterton quietly nestles on the slopes of the beautiful Long Mynd Hills, just 5 miles from the famous spa town of Church Stretton. This stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with its alpine style hills and valleys, is a must for any outdoor enthusiast with the surrounding countryside boasting many footpaths, bridleways and cycling trails across the thousands of acres of National Trust moorland and woodland areas. The pretty town of Church Stretton, christened 'Little Switzerland' by the Victorians, is close by and is set amid striking scenery. Still retaining its spa town feel, with natural springs being the source of Stretton Hills bottled water, the town is home to a variety of tea rooms, pubs, specialist shops, a huge antique centre and hill top golf course. Other nearby attractions include the Acton Scott Working Farm, the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre and magnificent Stokesay Castle. The historic towns of Shrewsbury, Ludlow, the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, Much Wenlock and Bishop's Castle are also within easy driving distance, all boasting wonderful architecture and offering a broad range of quality shops, pubs and restaurants, fabulous castles, museums and delightful riverside walks.
