Historians can’t seem to agree why the Offa’s Dyke was constructed by the King of Mercia in the 8th century. All the same, it is one of the most celebrated ancient linear earthworks in the UK. For this alone, you should be interested in staying at Brookside Leisure Park which is located just 500 yards from the Dyke. Again, there is the 182-mile Offa’s Way that is said to demarcate the border between Wales and England. As you see, you will never run short of historical attractions at Brookside Leisure Park.

The countryside wilderness awaits your exploration. Your sense of geography will be tested to the limit in the woods and the surrounding country roads. Be ready to put your hiking boots and khaki shorts to good use. A day here would never be complete without dipping into an outdoor hot tub in the evening.
