Town: Standing amidst rolling farmland in the scenic Hope Valley, the scattered village of Westhope is situated at the southern foot of the famous Wenlock Edge. The area is packed with lovely walks, rambling routes and cycle trails down local paths and bridleways. Many of Shropshire's main attractions are within easy driving distance such as Church Stretton - known as 'Little Switzerland' to the locals - which offers a selection of antique shops and tea rooms and is surrounded by the beautiful Long Mynd Hills. The Acton Scott Historic Working Farm and the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre are also worth visiting, as is the Ironbridge World Heritage Site and the medieval towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow - the latter of which boasts four Michelin starred restaurants. With so much to do in the local area, everyone is sure to find something they enjoy.More
