It's like having a garden that is over 3,000 miles long. The canal is part of the waterways system with its tentacles going all over the UK and all at 3 mile per hour! The tow path opposite the house is part of The Shropshire Way, a long distance footpath for keen hikers.
We have our boat moored outside the house that is accessed from a large lawn area with various seating areas, hammocks and a glamping pod. Down through a floral archway and the front patio area opens up with an entertainment area that can easily be served from the kitchen or gas barbeque. A side gate leads to the pretty well stocked fish pond and relaxing flower gardens. Again there are seating areas for you to find the sun, shade or shelter from the rain! Inside the house there is a large kitchen/diner with easy walk through access to television room, utility and lounge.
The three bedrooms are on the first and second floors and there are two shower rooms and three toilet's.
We tend to use our narrow boat (a cosy 4 berth with galley, shower and WC) like a second home but can arrange time on the water for you if you want.
This house is set in a very quiet rural location in the village of Bettisfield with only the sound of canal boats chugging by. The historical Shrewsbury, Chester and Telford are all on our doorstep for you to explore. Numerous picturesque border towns and villages offer options to drive to and sample the food and drink in traditional pub settings. Liverpool and Manchester are both just over an hour away. The stunning coastline of North Wales can be visited in a day as can the Snowdonian National Park
To stay here you will definitely need a car to get about. If available, we have a car to swap.
