Town: The village of Minsterley lies in the Shropshire Hills, just 10 miles from the town of Shrewsbury. Minsterley boasts a pub, shop and Post Office and a fish and chip shop! The village of Pontesbury is just one mile away and offers further amenities, including takeaways and restaurants, plus Arscott Golf Club, Springlea Fishing Pools and the Pontesbury cycle/footpath. Close by is The Long Mynd, which is a haven for walkers and wildlife watchers and provides a convenient place to relax and take in the scenery on offer. There are plenty of things to do in the area with the National Trust's Attingham Park, Wroxeter Roman City, the museums at Ironbridge, the castle and Michelin starred restaurant of Ludlow and Acton Scott working farm.
