The Welsh Borders
Broughton Farm is situated very close to the border with Wales. The area is one of the most tranquil and least spoilt parts of England, yet within relatively easy reach of the large cities in the West Midlands, the North West and South Wales.
The South Shropshire Hills are a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and provide excellent walking and cycling country, particularly around the hills of the Long Mynd and the Stiperstones. The land in Wales is higher and wilder, providing dramatic routes for the more seasoned hill-walker. The Offa's Dyke long distance footpath passes within a few miles of Lower Broughton.
The nearby town of Bishop's Castle is famous for its breweries and its lively festivals, and towns such as Ludlow and Shrewsbury provide a wide range of services and attractions.
