- Scenic luxury shepherd's huts on the banks of Llangollen Canal
- A 15-minute drive from Whitchurch and 30 minutes from Shrewsbury
- Dog-friendly site with small shop, café (open daily) and village green
Fancy hols watching the world drift by – and getting out and about in it? Chug along to Whixall Marina, 15 minutes’ drive from the pretty Shropshire town of Whitchurch.
Whether making a quick stop on lengthy canal explores or staying put for a waterside getaway, this site is in just the right spot. On the banks of the Prees branch of the Llangollen canal, it’s well placed for puttering along in barges, and is about 20 leisurely water-filled miles from the spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.
Ramblers and bikers can stay in the dry instead, following paths along the canalside or wandering Whixall Moss five minutes away – just the sort of jaunts canine chums will want to be along for...
There’s plenty here for stay-putters too: when lazy days on site are called for, there’s a café serving hot drinks and meals throughout the day, and the café terrace is a prime spot for sitting to watch the barges, ducks and swans pass by.
Too much bustle? Find a seat in the ‘village green’ next to the café and take in the calm pace of the marina while sipping on a tea or coffee.

Nature-filled days are a cinch hereabouts: the site’s a 15-minute drive from Fenn’s, Whixall and Bettisfield Mosses National Nature Reserve on the England-Wales border, where there are rare dragonflies and craneflies to spy out, as well as pretty moths and butterflies, 166 species of bird, and lots of adders and lizards.
For outdoorsy days with a touch more control within half an hour of base, head instead for Cholmondeley Castle gardens or the award-winning Hodnet Hall Gardens. Both are in the grounds of stately homes, bringing a touch of old-worldy glamour to visits, and the fab Hawkstone Park Follies is 15 minutes away if 18th-century fantasy theme parks appeal.
Hawkstone may have got historians excited, so make stops at sprawling old piles like Attingham Park, Whittington Castle, Shrewsbury Castle and Chirk Castle – all within 40 minutes – or traipse along to Ironbridge Gorge to get a feeling for Britain’s Industrial Age with pit stops at Blists Hill Victorian Town, the china museum or the oldest cast-iron bridge in the world.
From Victorian towns to modern-day ones, trundle along next to the town of Shrewsbury, where there are museums and galleries, jailhouse tours, and boat tours along the Severn. Too slow-paced? It’s an 80-minute drive to Alton Towers, if hair-raising ‘coaster rides get blood pumping…
