    About this property

    A cosy cottage for a couple, complete with a wood burner, making it ideal for all year use, with walking direct from your door.
    This pair of pretty stone barn conversions sit overlooking the well tended grounds and private lakes of the owners 40-acre estate. Coarse fishing is available free of charge for guests (licence required). They have been thoughtfully furnished and renovated to provide quality accommodation where guests can relax and unwind. Located in south Shropshire, just outside the village of Hope Bowdler, with walking direct from your door onto the hills of Hope Bowdler and Church Stretton, or gently stroll around the fields and woodlands of the estate, enjoying the varied wildlife.

    Positioned between the historic towns of Much Wenlock, birthplace of the modern olympic games, and Church Stretton, home of the Long Mynd, both towns offer a good selection of shops, bars, deli’s and restaurants. Shropshire’s most well known towns of Ludlow, Shrewsbury and Ironbridge are all easily accessible, and the borders for Wales and Herefordshire are also nearby. The River Severn runs through the county and offers boat trips from select locations, as well as canoeing and kayaking. National Trust properties Attingham Park in Shropshire, Powys Castle near Welshpool, and Berrington Hall in Herefordshire are all within an hours drive. Acton Scott working farm, Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre, Stokesay Castle, Ludlow festivals, castle and racecourse are all nearby, as is Hereford Cathedral, with its chained library. The Edge Adventure Activity Centre offers high ropes courses, mountain boarding, quad trekking and clay shooting. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

    Dawn ‐ 20 Oct 2018
    "Lovely cottage. Great hosts welcomed with wine and fresh eggs and bread. Wood available for fire."
    Charles ‐ 19 Oct 2018
    "We picked this cottage initially because of its location in Shropshire and because we could take our dog. It was early October and we hit the weather perfectly. Lesley and Steve prestocked the fridge with a few necessities and we lit the wood burning stove ready for settling in later. But first we took a trip into nearby Church Stretton for an evening meal (fish and chips!). Shropshire is a beautiful county with some amazing sights and views which shouldn't be missed. There are also plenty of places to eat and drink plus good shopping. We take most of our holidays in UK and visit a different county every year, but I'm sure we will be back here before long."

    "Comfortable and warm with lots of character, and thoughtfully fitted out with everything you need, including a wonderful welcome pack of goodies from the helpful friendly owners. Near to the lovely little market town of Church Stretton with its individual shops including Mr Bun the Baker - great coffee, cakes and bread. The whole area is fantastic for walking, even from the cottage. If walking isn’t your thing, there is lots of interest within easy reach, Ironbridge, Blists Hill Victorian Village, Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Much Wenlock etc. Would thoroughly recommend."
