A cosy, quaint and beautifully situated apartment looking over a vast lake. Located only a few miles south of Shrewsbury with great access to all of Shropshire. An apartment close enough to town with an truly authentic rural feel. Perfect for couples wanting a relaxing and romantic time away.
The Apartment hosts one bedroom, a dining are, a kitchen, a bathroom and large sitting room. Due to the unique, long shape of the apartment every room bar the bathroom has windows looking out on to the lake. One can enjoy fantastic sunsets either from in side the apartment or on the decking directly out of it. Outdoor furniture is on the decking should you want to enjoy the last summer evenings.
The Apartment is just a short drive from Shrewsbury yet has a wonderful feel of rural seclusion and peace. Guests may walk around the grass path at the side of the lake and enjoy the views and tranquility this lovely spot has to offer.
What's makes the location so special in my opinion is it's complete sense of tranquility. The lake was formed in the glacial period and is known as a kettle hole mere, as a large chunk of ice dropped from the retreating glacier, calving into the earth and creating a huge hole that was then filled by melting and surface water. The lake is not only deep but also has high ridges both sides. This means that when you drop down to water level, one is completed enveloped by the surrounding area and almost cut off from everything else. The high ridges and being a north westerly facing lake mean that the lake is still with little breeze most of the time adding to it's idyllic vibe.
1920's romantic novelist Mary Webb wrote much of her novel 'Precious Bane' around Bomere Pool, which was called "Sarn Mere" in the book.
On the east corner of the pool lie the remains of an Iron Age Settlement. There are also tales of the ghost of a Roman soldier, (who was part of a Roman Camp situated at the pool over two thousand years ago), who seeks to find his dead wife, killed by flash flood in the area.
