The Great Outdoors

Shropshire is still one of those very much undiscovered counties, with endless rolling hills, fabulous countryside and secluded spots! Morrells Wood Farm is the perfect place to sit back, relax, unwind and admire the scenery, with or without a glass of wine or two!

Whether you choose to explore our fabulous county on foot, by bike, in your car, or even by boat, one of the many benefits of staying in Shropshire is the pace of life. So, whilst taking it easy is likely to be high on your priority list, for those who want to explore that bit further and see more of the great outdoors, there’s still plenty to discover.
