Local attractions

Next door to Broadmeadow is The Pound Inn, a splendid thatched inn dating back to the fifteenth century, with a tasty line in hearty grub. The local village of Leebotwood also has tea rooms and a farm shop. You’ll have a perfectly pleasant time whiling away the day in the market town of Church Stretton, three miles away; it has a leisure centre, bike hire, and some good independent shops (including a great deli and a couple of excellent outlets for camping and outdoor leisure gear). Church Stretton also offers a variety of food options, including some cute cafés, foodie pubs, Chinese and Indian restaurants, and various takeaways. The local Stretton Hills and the Long Mynd offer fabulous riding, walking and cycling, with an abundance of well-marked trails. The Long Mynd is also popular for paragliding, hot air ballooning and gliding. There are some wonderful places to visit within a relatively small radius of Broadmeadow. Top recommendations include: Ludlow, for its luscious architecture and fab new spa; the medieval county town of Shrewsbury, whose narrow streets are packed with more than 600 listed buildings, and plenty of smart shops; historic Ironbridge, a World Heritage site with ten museums packed along the river banks; and magnificent Powis Castle, just over the Welsh border, and Acton Scott working farm museum (as seen on T.V)
