Here are places to stay in Shirwell, both in the village or out in the countryside. You will need a car: public transport is pretty basic. Please let me know if you find that a link does not work, or if you know of other places to stay which should be mentioned here. If you want your own web page within the Shirwell site, I'm happy to set one up (free of charge) for Shirwell residents or businesses.
