Did you hear the one about the chocolate bar based on The Wrekin?

No honestly, it’s not a joke. It’s in the shops this week!

Forget Switzerland and it’s Alps, there’s a new, altogether British, bar inspired by our very own surroundings.

Poundland has launched a new chocolate bar called Twin Peaks, based on the shape of The Wrekin and The Ercall (more info here). And being the nearest business to The Wrekin we think this is great public exposure across the UK for our well known beauty spot!

The bar is similar in design to the Toblerone, but it has two ‘peaks’ on each triangle of chocolate instead of one.

So, to celebrate we’ve ordered the chocolate bars en mass and we’re putting on a special offer.

The Twin Peaks break here at Buckatree Hall Hotel gives you the chance to have two nights’ accommodation in one of our superior double or twin bed rooms with a 3-course evening meal on your second night and a full English breakfast both mornings.

Additionally, in your room there will be a Twin Peaks chocolate bar* and a signed copy of the book which tells the story of how the Wrekin and Ercall came to be ‘The Wellington Cobbler and The Wrekin Giant’ by Dave Weston.

We are so proud of our surroundings, we can’t wait to spread the word a little more and get The Wrekin (and Buckatree) on the map!

You can find out more about the Twin Peaks offer and book here.

* Please note that Twin Peaks chocolate bars are subject to availability.  If a Twin Peaks bar is not available at suitable alternative will be supplied.
