ST WINIFRED’S WELL

Wool­ston, Oswestry

Homes and Antiques Magazine - - TRAVEL -

Hid­den away in wood­land, the small but per­fectly formed St Winifred’s Well can only be reached on foot via a pub­lic foot­path. Built above an an­cient spring, which still flows, this bi­jou res­i­dence was once a me­dieval well chapel. Truly a re­mote spot for con­tem­pla­tion, the care­fully re­stored in­te­rior is sim­ple, with ex­posed beams, white­washed walls, oak floors and a solid fuel stove. This se­cluded for­mer chapel is like an all-in-one me­dieval-style bed­sit and sleeps two, snugly. Nearby Oswestry is a thriv­ing mar­ket town with its an­nual fes­ti­vals, and you can pick up a vin­tage trea­sure or two at Cam­brian House Em­po­rium and Es­tab­lished. 01628 825925; land­mark­trust.org.uk

Get away from it all – quite lit­er­ally – with a stay at the en­chant­ing for­mer chapel, St Winifred’s Well in Shrop­shire.
