Things To Do in Candy
Located in the rural hamlet of Candy, just a few miles from Oswestry on the Shropshire/Wales border, the cottage is within easy reach of Chester, Shrewsbury and Snowdonia.
Train enthusiasts will love a day out at Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway, a 16 mile round-trip on a narrow gauge steam train through Welsh countryside. Originally opened in 1903, the train’s journey then and now takes in a viaduct, a river bridge and the beautiful Welsh countryside.
The train negotiates a viaduct and river bridge, climbs the notoriously steep Golfa Bank and steams serenely through the beautiful countryside of the Powis Estate, where pheasants and deer can be spotted from the train.
Less than 30 minutes from the cottage is the 18th century Erddig Estate. In rooms reminiscent of those seen in Downton Abbey, the Erdigg estate offers a fascinating insight into life both above and below stairs for the house’s inhabitants and its servants.
From the room bells to the kitchen and the formal, stately rooms used by the house’s owners, the house will set your imagination whirring as to life back in its heyday. Erdigg has a unique collection of paintings and poetry which was created over a period of almost 200 years.
The house’s servants are detailed in the collection and help to tell the story of the house and its owners today. See the house’s stately rooms, fine furniture collection or take a walk in its gardens before discovering what the estate’s horses are up to in the stables.
The Attingham Estate, also a National Trust property like Erdigg, has 200 acres of parkland and woods. There are three fixed walking routes within the grounds of the estate and its parkland; the Deer Park Walk, Woodland Walk and World War II Walk.
Canine companions are very welcome at the Attingham Estate for long walks on a lead (various lengths allowed, see information at the estate) to dining in the Dog Walker’s Rest, a dedicated dog-friendly area at the Mansion Tearoom and Carriage House Café.
Mill Cottage in Candy is the perfect choice for families or friends looking to enjoy a relaxing break in a beautiful rural setting and hoping to make the most of the fresh air and long walks with their canine friends.
Enjoy breakfast on the patio or even a BBQ on a summer’s evening then drift off in one of the peaceful bedrooms and be ready to explore the beautiful surroundings again the following day.
The cottage has easy access by car to a number of National Trust properties so history enthusiasts are spoilt for choice.
Nearby Llangollen, famous for its Eisteddfod, also offers a wide range of activities for all the family from white water activities to horse drawn barges. After such busy days, you might be relieved to escape to the tranquillity of Mill Cottage!
