Region: A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was the quietest place under the sun and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.
Town: The ancient border market town of Oswestry has restaurants and all usual amenities, along with its extensive and well preserved hill top Iron Age fort which is great for walking and views. Historic houses and castles with beautiful grounds locally include Chirk and Powis Castle, Erddig and Attingham Park, or visit the nearby market town of Ellesmere, once described by Alan Bennet as Shropshires Lake District.
