The market town of Wem in Shropshire made its name as the birthplace of the sweet pea, and still celebrates Henry Eckford's unassuming flower at its annual festival. But you don't need to be green-fingered to enjoy the quaint English parish: it's also a stone's throw from castles, gardens, shops, and theatres. See for yourself courtesy of this Escape to The Old Rectory Hotel.

Allow us to sow the seed of an idea: you and your best bud will stay for two nights for £139 (up to a £293.80 value). Alternatively, arrive on a Sunday and harvest a slightly different package for the same price (up to a £256.90 value).

If you'd rather expand your allotment, make it a family stay for two adults and up to two children for two nights for £179 (up to a £376.60 value); again, arriving on Sunday gets you a different package for the same price (up to a £295.80 value). Before we get into the details, let us plant this one on you: you'll stay in one of 14 individually styled rooms, featuring desk area, en suite, and mini bar with locally sourced produce.

Breakfast is included each morning with every option. Those arriving on a Sunday will receive a three-course Sunday lunch each, while those arriving Monday to Saturday will receive a two-course dinner. You'll pluck your choice from dishes such as roast Shropshire turkey and sticky toffee pudding on the Sabbath, or chicken breast with blue cheese mousse and Bailey's crème brûlée other days. Choose to return and dine again on the second evening with any package, and you'll enjoy a bottle of wine to accompany the food.

As if this Escape hasn't already grown on you, you'll also enjoy a trip along the River Severn on triple-deck passenger boat the Sabrina as part of your package, departing from Shrewsbury, a perfectly charming Tudor town in which to spend an afternoon. Alternatively, find somewhere else to photosynthesise: Wem isn't far from Whittington Castle, Telford Steam Railway, or Hawkstone Park Golf Club.

This Escape is for two people, with availability for all seven days of the week. Got a question? Contact our Travel Concierge on escapes.uk@livingsocial.com.
