This one centre cycling holiday makes an ideal longer weekend break and can be extended with a visit to the market town of Shrewsbury.

The one centre Borders Break cycling holiday explores the canals, rivers, meres and mosses of North Shropshire. Stay in a comfortable farmhouse on the edge of the small pretty market town of Ellesmere, on the Llangollen canal, or the Shropshire market town of Wem in a country house hotel.

North Shropshire is undiscovered, so not busy with tourists or cars! Cycle the peaceful lanes to Colemere Country Park, Whittington Castle and many of the small lakes in the area including Colemere and Hanmer Mere. Explore the small town of Ellesmere pleasantly situated with the Shropshire Union canal on one side and the Mere (a small lake) on the other side.

  • Hawkestone Park and Follies
  • Pretty market town of Ellesmere

Cycling distances – 20 – 25 miles or 10 – 15 miles a day, or selection of rides of different distances. We also have some strenuous options.
