About the location


Shrewsbury 8 miles; Oswestry 17 miles; Iron Bridge 21 miles.

The picturesque village of Grinshill rests eight miles from Shrewsbury at the foot of the steeply sloping hill and Corbet Wood. Grinshill, with its view points of surrounding countryside, boasts wonderfully scenic walks and cycle routes, graced by stunning views of the nearby Hawkstone Park, Shropshire Hills and Welsh mountain peaks. This beautiful area is famous for its ancient mines and natural stone production, and is a worldwide discovery site for dozens of Megaliths, dating as far back as 7000 BC. Historic Shrewsbury, located in the loop of the River Severn, boasts a wealth of timber-framed, black and white buildings housing a fine selection of shops, restaurants and pubs. Shrewsbury Abbey, founded in 1083 and Shrewsbury Castle, an impressive building set in beautiful gardens and housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum, is well worth a visit, as is Iron Bridge via the National Trust's Attingham Park. A delightful holiday location at any time of the year.
