Blackwater Meadow Apartment is a spacious and bright single storey bungalow situated within the grounds of Blackwater Meadow Marina, just a mile from the Shropshire market town of Ellesmere and a stone’s throw from the scenic Llangollen Canal which is famous for the magnificent Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.
This 3 bedroom holiday apartment is ideal for a family or a group of friends who enjoy the great outdoors, as you are surrounded by beautiful Shropshire countryside and have direct access to the canal towpath. Within walking distance of the apartment is The Mere, a beautiful lakeside country park which is perfect for walking or cycling and there’s even a waterside pub!
For those who prefer sightseeing, a short hop across the Welsh border and you can visit Chirk Castle, plus the lovely town of Llangollen where you’ll find a steam train taking you into the Welsh Valleys. Other interesting places to explore in the surrounding area include Wrexham, Oswestry, Whitchurch and Nantwich. You could even pop up to Chester for the day!
Inside our Blackwater Meadow Apartment each of the three bedrooms can be configured as either a double or twin room, giving you lots of flexibility (let us know your preference on booking). There is an open plan dining and living room with Freeview TV / DVD and a very well equipped kitchen. Outside, you’ll find an enclosed patio area with a picnic table and BBQ - perfect for a spot of al fresco dining.
During your stay, why not rent a little narrowboat for the day from the Marina next door? You could putter down the canal, taking in the countryside and woodland en route to a lazy lunch or cream tea, before turning around and returning your boat in the late afternoon.
