Haughmond View is perfectly located for a walk into town to enjoy the historic delights of this pretty medieval town, whilst also providing easy access to the motorway links. The half acre garden has a private BBQ area and a shady seat under the magnificent willow. Lose yourself and step back in time, Darwin's birthplace has its own castle and market square dating back to the 16th century.

A walk into the town but also on a regular bus route and less than 5 minutes by car, the location is absolutely perfect! The house itself is tastefully decorated, and well maintained throughout,the kitchen is well equipped for those evenings when a little home cooking is on the menu and even has a dishwasher to save you the grind of washing dishes. Alternatively you have space to prepare that all important barbecue for those warm sunny evenings when 'al fresco' dining is the way to go. Shrewsbury is a historic market town with the town centre having a largely unaltered medieval street plan.

The town features over 660 historic listed buildings, including several examples of timber framing from the 15th and 16th century. Shrewsbury Castle, a red sandstone castle fortification, and Shrewsbury Abbey, a former Benedictine monastery, were founded in 1074 and 1083 respectively, by the Norman Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery.The town hosts one of the oldest and largest horticultural events in the country, the Shrewsbury Flower Show, and is known for its floral displays, having won various awards since the turn of the 21st century, including Britain in Bloom in 2006.

Today, 9 miles (14 km) east of the Welsh border, Shrewsbury serves as the commercial centre for the ceremonial county and a large area of mid-Wales, with retail output alone worth over ?299 million per year. There are some light industry and distribution centres, such as Battlefield Enterprise Park, mainly on the outskirts. The A5 and A49 trunk roads cross near to the town, as do five separate railway lines at Shrewsbury railway station.
