In the heart of the beautiful Shropshire countryside, amidst the renowned walking and cycling region, is the historic village of Caynham. With evidence of early dwelling on the site, in the form of the outstanding landmark, Caynham Camp, visitors can see this huge Bronze Age/Iron Age earthwork which covers a site of eight acres at the summit, from which wonderful views can be enjoyed. Three miles away is Ludlow where slightly more recent building work can be seen in the intact medieval street patterns of the town. Renowned for several Michelin-starred restaurants, as well as numerous tea-shops, pubs and inns, Ludlow is a great destination for gourmets and food enthusiasts whilst nearby, visitors can enjoy such diverse activities as Ironbridge Gorge, Severn Valley Railway, Berrington Hall and Cardingmill Valley.
A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.
