The Location

The quaint hamlet village of Alcaston is set in some of the most scenic countryside South Shropshire has to offer and is located between the two market towns of Church Stretton and Craven arms and conveniently just under 1.5 miles from the A49 road network.

The 3 market towns of Church Stretton, Bishops Castle and Craven Arms are all within easy reach. Church Stretton, nicknamed Little Switzerland, is nestled at the foot of Shropshire Hills. Enjoying direct access to over 20 square miles of National Trust land known as the Long Mynd Church Stretton is a haven for nature lovers and those of an active disposition. Bishops Castle lies west of Alcaston and is situated 1.5 miles from the Welsh border. An eclectic town, Bishops Castle has an excellent selection of independent retailers, a range of eating establishments and public houses. It is also home to two micro-breweries namely the Three Tuns which is the oldest in the UK. Craven Arms is located on the A49 and is the easiest to access from Alcaston. Offering a good range of facilities including a supermarket, doctors surgery, banks, butchers and its own array of independent shops Craven Arms offers everything you will need for day to day living. A little further distant you will find the historic market town of Ludlow and the county town of Shrewsbury. Ludlow is an architectural gem with a stunning array of Tudor, Georgian and Victorian properties. A gastronomic centre, Ludlow plays host to the annual food festival which attracts 20,000 visitors to the town. It is also home to a wonderful array of eating establishments. Shrewsbury, the birth place of Charles Darwin, is a vibrant and lively town with a very cosmopolitan yet traditional atmosphere. The town’s 660 listed buildings are complimented by a host of trendy and sophisticated bars and restaurants, the medieval streets do however still retain many classic public houses and dining establishments. Built on the River Severn the town hosts the annual Shrewsbury Flower Show which is one of the largest and oldest horticultural shows in the country attracting over 100,000 visitors. Home to 4 shopping centres, 2 significant retail parks and countless independent retailers the town is an excellent place to enjoy some retail therapy.
