Whixall Marina: The marina

General

  • 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 on the ‘village green’ next to the café and take in the calm pace of the marina while sipping on a tea or coffee.

    Lovely location right next to canal, very peaceful. Cleanliness of site & facilities. Hut was well kept, nicely furnished & well laid out to make the most of the space.

    quiet peaceful with a great view over the river and countryside. Some great walks locally and if you're willing to travel around 20 mins by car, you're treated to some nice little villages and parks. we were lucky enough to be the only ones staying there that week which made it a little more enjoyable. would recommend and will visit again ourselves.

    Disliked: 

    nothing to really dislike. toilets are a little walk away but not to much of an issue.

  • Liked: 

    During our stay neither the other 2 huts or 2 lodges nearby were occupied. The area was very peaceful and right by the canal. The grounds were well maintained.
    Over- looking the boats there was a lovely cafe with a covered patio open part-time hours.
    The staff were very welcoming and helpful.
    The shepherd's hut was well kitted out
    Both the hut and shower room with WC were immaculately clean. As no other hut was rented out we had sole use of the shower room.
    There was a rug covering each mattress in the hut plus 1 spare rug. No bed linen was provided so best to check before you stay what you need to bring for bedding.

Local attractions

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, 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 olde-worlde glamour to visits, and the fab Hawkstone Park Follies is 15 minutes away for an 18th-century fantasy theme park.

If Hawkstone has historians excited, make further 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…

Must see

  • Chester Castle (20.5 miles)
  • Cheshire Military Museum (20.5 miles)
  • Chester Cathedral (20.9 miles)

National Trust

  • Chirk Castle (14.3 miles)
