If you plan to travel everywhere in your car, you’ll find that surrounding towns and cities can be reached easily. Telford is a 20-minute drive west down the A518, and a trip to Wolverhampton is just over half an hour, thanks to the A41.

Enjoy a tasty tandoori at Shimla, treat yourself to a Chinese at ‘Wok and Roll, or get a taste of paradise at Newport’s Bangladeshi restaurant. Maybe these cuisines aren’t what you’re after. Well, all you have to do is walk a little bit further down the high street and you’ll be sure to find something that you fancy. Newport is full of great food that’s right on your doorstep.

Within the village of Tibberton, near Newport, enjoy a traditional pub atmosphere at the Sutherland Arms where you can enjoy some pub grub and a drink in a friendly environment.

Sights to see

Although the pubs and restaurants are fantastic, this market town has far more to offer than places to eat and drink. Dotted around Newport and its surrounding areas are some 12th century buildings that have been standing since the town was founded. While most of them were burned down in the 17th century, one that remains is St Nicholas Church which has been restored to its original glory. From architectural beauty to that only a painter can create, the Artworx Gallery resides within a Grade II-listed home to an impressive range of original works and prints.

Local walks

There are few better counties for a leisurely stroll than Shropshire. The hills, the colours, the authentic sense of fresh air; the county is the place to be for getting out and about on foot. Newport is a great base for it, offering many appealing trails of its own. Many of them taking place in Lilleshall, with hills, gardens, and grounds, all of which ready to be explored. What if walking is too slow of a pace? What if you want to take your bike for a spin? Follow the old rail trail from Newport to Stafford Greenway and take in the scenery that passes you by.

Living in Tibberton, you’ll have the advantage of stunning scenery around you, including the River Meese just a stone’s throw from homes at our Miller’s Gate development. Enjoy getting out nature and exploring all that the Shropshire countryside has to offer.
