Moffats is situated only 45 minutes west of the UK's second largest city, but in peaceful, rolling English countryside. We are close to the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and within easy reach of Shakespeare's Stratford, as well as many fascinating British attractions. We lie in the Shropshire parish of Kinlet, on the edge of the ancient Wyre Forest, and the whistle of the steam trains, plying their route up and down the Severn Valley Railway between Bridgnorth and Bewdley, carries to us across the fields and woods that make up this tranquil corner of Central England.
Our closest international airport is Birmingham.
The road journey to Moffats is straightforward via the M42 and M5. Trains run into Birmingham where there are regular connections to Kidderminster. The journey from London airports, though longer, is easy.
