“A picturesque part of the country with plenty of rolling hills, winding rivers and quaint tea rooms. A delightful place to spend a few relaxing days.”

In need of a long weekend, Sam and I decided to venture to the Peak District for a few days in the search of some peace, quiet and countryside. After a bit of searching, we found The Old Lockup online and booked ourselves in to The Solicitors Room for 3 nights.

Shrewsbury was a ‘stop-off’ point for us on our way to North Wales. I am always drawn to staying in quainter historic market towns rather than bigger cities, simply because they usually are nicer to walk around. Shrewsbury didn’t disappoint on that front. The town really has kept it’s ‘old feel’, with the layout of the town seemingly unchanged over the years. The centre of the town is littered with narrow streets and lanes, which are full of cute looking shops and cafes.

I had been to Warwick once as a child, but couldn’t really remember much about it, except for having a real panic attack whilst being taken around the castle walls because I didn’t like the confined winding stairs of medieval buildings! So, when looking for a location for Sam and I to have short weekend trip, it jumped out on the map.

“A wonderful way to slow down and remember what it means to relax. Sitting on the deck with a cuppa and some cake in the sunshine is bliss!”

Canal boats are a common sight on any canal or small river. Being a rower, I see them several times a week and we have always had a fairly ominous relationship with them, generally because they get in our way! However, after hearing some fairly positive comments about canal boating holidays, we decided to give it a try with two friends.
