The new homes at Scarlett Oaks are just a short walk from Shifnal’s charming
and attractive town centre, which features a central Conservation Area boasting
handsome Georgian architecture.
The town offers an excellent selection of independent shops, and an eclectic mix
of cafes, pubs and restaurants for all occasions, including artisan coffee shops,
wine bars, cuisine from around the world and fine dining. The elegant Park
House Hotel is just a five-minute walk from the new homes.
Meanwhile, there’s everything you need for day-to-day living within Shifnal,
including a supermarket, a medical centre, a dental practice and a library, while a
busy calendar of events enhances the town’s thriving community feel.
Sports facilities in Shifnal are good too: Idsall Sports Centre has a sports hall,
gym and fitness suite as well as football pitches, a floodlit all-weather pitch and
eight floodlit tennis courts.
Keen golfers will appreciate that Shifnal Golf Club, with its Regency-style
clubhouse, is one of the best golf courses in the county, and was the venue
for the PGA Midland Championships 2015.
Telford is just four miles to the west, putting a wealth of additional shopping,
leisure and entertainment opportunities within easy reach, including more
than 160 stores as well as Oakengates Theatre, Telford Ice Rink and Telford
Snowboard and Ski Centre.
Scarlett Oaks is well situated for easy access to well-regarded schools for
children of all ages.
St Andrew’s CE Primary School is located very close to the new homes, off
Park Lane, and was rated ‘good’ at its most recent Ofsted inspection, as
were Shifnal Primary School and Idsall School for secondary-age students.
Shifnal railway station is just over half a mile from Scarlett Oaks, so is ideal
for commuters looking to take advantage of regular, direct services to
Birmingham New Street, Wolverhampton and Shrewsbury.
Meanwhile, Junction 4 of the M54 is just two miles away for access to Telford
and Shrewsbury, while Junction 3 is four miles from home for quick links east
