Everyone needs a place to lay their weary head. For travellers visiting Craven Arms, Birches Mill is an excellent choice for rest and rejuvenation. More While at Birches Mill, guests can go online with internet access, and if you are driving, free parking is available. Close to some of Craven Arms' most popular landmarks, such as Walcot Hall (6.9 km) and St John The Baptist (15.2 km), Birches Mill is a great destination for tourists. Traveller's looking to enjoy some fish and chips can head to The Crown Inn, The Swan Inn, or Fryer Freeman. Otherwise, you may want to check out an Indian restaurant such as Razas Pizza and Curry House or Red Lantern. If you’re looking for things to do, you can check out Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which is a popular wildlife area amongst tourists. Less
