Spring Cottage is set in deepest Shropshire, in the tiny hamlet of Cefn Einion. One of the few parts of England which Euro-agriculture has not reached, steep little hills, deep narrow lanes, slow winding muddy rivers and, in the spring wild flowers everywhere. To the north, Bishops Castle is a small market town dating back to the 12th century, built on a steep south facing hill, with many pubs, restaurants, craft shops, a bank and two fine breweries. Why not take part in the Bishops Castle Walking Festival in June, www.walkingfestival.co.uk To the south, Clun, with its ancient castle ruin and meandering river, is home to the Green Man Festival on the May bank holiday, when hundreds of visitors flock to see the Green Man banish the Ice Queen on the bridge across the river. www.clungreenman.org.uk
