Geocache Description:

For some reason, Shropshire does not have a TB hotel of any kind. We thought we'd rectify this with a luxurious TB Resort & Spa, easily accessible from the A41.

Handily situated mid-way between Market Drayton and Newport, the A41 North Shropshire Travel Bug Resort & Spa offers all the facilities a discerning TB or geocoin could ever need.

It's located on some of the highest ground in the immediate area and offers pretty much 360° panormaic views. The Hinstock trigpoint is very close to the cache. The trigpoint is also a waymark. A cache, a waymark and a trigpoint at the same time - what more can any cacher want!

Suggested parking is in the lane just off the A41 at N52 49.307 W2 27.082. From here you will need to cross the A41 to get to the cache, so we'd advise the usual caution if caching with children or dogs as it can get busy here.

You are looking for a large sized ammo can with plenty of space for TB's and swaps.

N.B. The trigpoint is on the edge of the field to the south of the cache. Once you have found the cache, after 100ft (or thereabouts) on the walk back to your car, go through the right border of the lane to get to the trigpoint. There are great views to the south from the trigpoint, including The Wrekin and Caer Caradoc on a clear day.
