Situated in a quiet village on the Shropshire/Staffordshire border, the Swan’s privileged rural location places it near to a wealth of wonderful attractions. It’s just 20 minutes from the nearby towns of Telford, Stafford and Market Drayton. A little further afield is Ironbridge known as the ‘birthplace of the industrial revolution’. Taking its namesake from the famous cast iron bridge built across the River Severn, it is now a World Heritage Site and home to the nine Ironbridge Gorge Museums.
