Things To Do Whilst Staying at Morrells Wood Farm

Even though Morrells Wood Farm is idyllically located in a truly ‘get away from it all’ experience, we are only a short distance drive from the motorway connecting the Midlands to Wales, and the fabulous town of Shrewsbury itself.

For those who love a bit of ‘retail therapy’ you’re spoilt for choice! Our closest shopping centre is Telford. Featuring all your favourite high street names, the shops are located on a single level, as are the numerous adjacent car parks, making it ideal for those with mobility issues. Alternatively, the quaint and sometimes cobbled streets of Shrewsbury and Ludlow are filled with many independent shops, selling everything from boutique clothing and dressmaking fabrics to vinyl records and vintage wines. For the serious shopper, there’s always Merry Hill shopping centre, along with Chester and Birmingham too!

Of course, no trip into our wonderful county should be without a visit to the World Heritage site of Ironbridge, or to one of the many historic tourist attractions that Shropshire has to offer! Our local attractions include many National Trust properties, stately homes, country houses and even castles.

For those who want to venture that bit further, the Welsh border is less than 23 miles away, but with so much to do and see, you may just decide to take it easy, relax and explore the wonderful county of Shropshire!

The best present I’ve ever been given!

What a lovely little hidden hut Shepherds Rest is!

It was purchased as a night away anniversary present, and I can honestly say it’s the best present I’ve ever been given!

We wished we had stayed for longer!

The Shepherds Hut, which is tucked away next to a field with four beautiful cows in it, had everything we needed and wished we had stayed for longer!

The location is superb and is easily accessible, with loads of fabulous places to visit nearby, yet far enough away to be in the middle of nowhere – so much so that you felt you were in another world!

There are endless lovely walks from the property and if you’re lucky enough, you might catch sight of some of the deer in the nearby woods or on The Wrekin hill itself!

A wonderful rural location to re-charge the batteries

We made a last-minute booking to stay in the very spacious and well equipped The Byre. The location is very quiet down a long country lane, making it the perfect location to wind down and re-charge the batteries.

It was lovely sitting outside in the evening watching the stars over the Wrekin, whilst watching bats fly past. There are lots of lovely and easily accessible walks, with a number of excellent tourist attractions in this part of Shropshire too!

We’ve had the best holiday!

This was a spontaneous break away from home. It was an area I wasn’t familiar with and it didn’t disappoint!

We stayed in the Shepherds Rest, which was very quaint, comfortable and clean! The owner leaves you to enjoy your holiday but is always on hand if you need any help, and Molly their dog is amazing!

We will definitely be booking again for next year and recommending it to our friends and family.

The location is excellent!

In between The Wrekin and the River Severn, at the end of a very quiet lane, Rickyard Cottage was perfect for a short break in Shropshire!

The location is excellent as it offered easy access to Shrewsbury and Ironbridge.

A wonderful, peaceful location with very friendly hosts”

The standard of the accommodation at Morrells Wood Farm is high, and The Byre is particularly spacious! We were given a very warm welcome from both the hosts and Molly the dog!

As this is a working farm, it’s lovely to see the hosts going about their business in this wonderful, peaceful location. Interestingly, whilst isolated, this location is so close to local attractions, so there was no long trek to see what was around.

It’s not often we feel we would return to a property as there are so many others to experience, but we will definitely be returning!

What our guests say...

Beautiful scenery and service

My partner and I stayed in The Dairy, a cottage that is cosy, sweet and very clean.

The surroundings are beautiful, and with so many different walks to go on, the whole experience was just peaceful and relaxing, so much so we didn’t want to leave!

We would definitely recommend this place to anyone – you will not be disappointed!

What our guests say...

We’ve already booked to come back!

We stayed for a week in The Dairy and couldn’t have been made more welcome by the owners, their dog Molly the collie and a fabulous herd of cows!

In fact, we loved it so much that we have booked to come back again in August and stay at The Byre!
