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: two people will stay for two nights for £125 (up to a £251.85 value). Alternatively, arrive on a Sunday for a slightly different package at the same price (up to a £228.85 value).

If you'd rather expand your allotment, make it a family stay for two adults and up to two children (under 16) for two nights for £169 (up to a £371.85 value); again, arriving on Sunday gets you a different package for the same price (up to a £380.75 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.

Shrewsbury is a perfectly charming Tudor town in which to spend an afternoon, and boasts a thriving shopping and cultural scene. Wem also lies close to Whittington Castle, Telford Steam Railway, or Hawkstone Park Golf Club.
