The Old Smithy Holiday Cottage

There is so much to see do and enjoy in this beautiful part of Shropshire. The Shropshire Union Canal is on the doorstep with opportunities for pleasant walks along the tow path, eating delicious food in the Whaff Tavern or even hiring a barge for a day from Norbury Wharf. There are some fantastic gardens, grand houses and an organic farm complete with cafe and farm shop. For those with younger children there is a miniture railways moments away. Golf and good fishing is also on hand and of course there is Market Drayton. Wednesday is market day but there is much to see everyday. As the birthplace and home of Clive of India it is steeped in history and has good claims to be the home of gingerbread.
