ST WINIFRED’S WELL
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.
