Wigmore Lakes: Relax by the lake

General

  • Countryside park with two fishing lakes
  • Views of the south Shropshire Hills and the hills into Wales
  • Half an hour from Ironbridge Gorge

Splendid Shrewsbury, historic home to medieval streets, over 660 listed buildings and many a festival – and half an hour from the illustrious World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge.

And splendid Wigmore Lakes, close to all this industrious activity but also a Shropshire countryside site with views of both the south Shropshire Hills and the hills into Wales, to use as a base for peaceful retreats of an evening.

Or just stay on site instead: Wigmore Lakes has two fishing lakes for guests for a small daily rate, to catch carp, tench, roach, bream and other silverfish (one of the lakes is predominantly filled with carp and the other has a complete mix and is often used for matches).

Wigmore Lakes doesn't have a site shop, but a shop/post office is just outside, along with a fish and chip shop for takeaway and a café for breakfast and other meals.

A modern toilet and shower block is available for guests' use.

Wigmore Lakes does accept kids, but doesn't have any facilities for them such as a play area or games.
