    An ideal base for whether you’re visiting family, friends or just relaxing. Canal View is a contemporary, semi-detached home set on the Wyrley and Essington Canal which borders the property. The location creates a tranquil place to stay whilst allowing you to be close enough to a wide range of amenities and travel links. Walsall town centre is just 2.5 miles away and is excellent for shopping and entertainment for all ages. The Wyrley and Essington Canal is nicknamed the Curly Wyrley, due to its twisting course. Its peaceful, meandering waters see few boats, but it is popular with walkers, cyclists and anglers. Parts of the canal are very rural, and it runs past a number of nature reserves and wildlife hotspots, including Pelsall Common and Rough Wood Nature Reserve. The tranquil, slow-moving waters of the canal itself are home to thriving aquatic plant life, including protected floating water plantain and grass wrack pondweed. Chasewater Country Park has 900 acres of open space and water. The park centres Chasewater Reservoir, which was constructed to supply water to the canal. It is now a Site of Special Scientific Interest, with plenty of walking and cycling trails. You can make the most of the water with lots of exciting activities, including sailing, water-skiing and sub-aqua diving. So whatever your reason for visiting, Canal View has plenty to do and see. Shop 500 yards, restaurant 1 mile.
