  • If you are looking for a weekend stay, book early to guarantee your choice of hotel, especially in the run up to the Christmas period. The Christmas markets are popular at this time of year and attract many visitors from neighbouring cities and regions. Try the Herriots Hotel on Broughton Road at just an 8-min walking distance to the marketplace and town centre amenities.
  • If you are looking for a romantic getaway, try out one of the Canalside cottages like Town Cottage for strolls along the canal, or Albert Cottage nearer to the Castle grounds for forest and woodland walks. Renting a cottage will give you more seclusion from the main hub and the freedom to pursue your own itinerary at your own pace.

Suitable walks for all abilities can be found directly on foot in the immediate vicinity of the town.
