The Sky's the Limit at Apley Farm Shop

 in Shrewsbury Helicopter charter company Helitrip has partnered with Apley Farm Shop to provide a range of pleasure flights across Shropshire. The first flights will take place Father’s Day, Sunday 15th June 2014.

Available packages include a short 6 mins tour of the historic Apley Estate, a 30 minute ‘Shrewsbury by Air’ trip showcasing the market town’s finest places of interest and a 36 minute ‘Scenic Severn’ helicopter flight which follows the River through Buildwas, The Ironbridge Gorge and Jackfield.

Helitrip founder Steve Patterson comments; “We are delighted to be working with Apley Farm Shop to offer visitors our popular pleasure flights and the opportunity to see the Apley Estate’s beautiful grounds from a unique perspective. A helicopter experience is the perfect way to make your day extra special or a memorable way to treat Dad this Father’s Day.”

Lady Harriet Hamilton, Apley Marketing Manager, continues “We are always searching for new ways to offer our customers something a little out of the ordinary. A helicopter pleasure flight is an exciting way to begin your day at Apley before exploring the Farm Shop, butcher & delicatessen, enjoying a bite to eat at the Creamery Café Restaurant or treating the children to fun at Pigg’s Playbarn, Scotty’s Animal Park & Piglet’s Toy Shop. Visitors can also enjoy our Skylark Nature Trail, Elizabeth Beckett’s Skin Care & Lottie’s collection of ladieswear, menswear & children’s clothes.”
