A delightful terraced cottage, formerly two Victorian quarrymen's cottages which have been converted into a deceptively spacious Shropshire holiday home. Set in the rural village of Bedlam, just 6 miles from the town of Ludlow, this Shropshire cottage offers cosy and charming accommodation including quarry tiled floors, two open fires, an AGA and French doors that lead onto a rear decked area with garden beyond. Your Bedlam cottage is situated halfway up Titterstone Clee Hill from which you can follow the 8 mile long Bedlam on Clee walk along the Shropshire Way passing over the hill's summit, where on a clear day you can enjoy stunning views. The surrounding countryside offers fabulous walking, cycling, fishing and birdwatching, whilst medieval Ludlow, with its listed buildings, wonderful 13th century castle, excellent restaurants, pubs, tea rooms, shops and festivals has something for all the family. Discover Church Stretton, which nestles at the foot of the Long Mynd hills, lovely Shrewsbury and Leominster, the World Heritage Site at Ironbridge, Severn Valley Railway, Stokesay Castle and the Wroxeter Roman City. All of these places of interest are within easy reach, making this welcoming Shropshire cottage perfect for families or groups of friends.

- “We found the cottages very well equipped and had a wonderful weekend.”
- “It was a very comfortable cottage for my party and we enjoyed just relaxing in the lounge chatting in front of the fire. Particularly as it was cold and wet outside. Great layout of the house and very well equipped.”
- “We had a fantastic family stay, it is a well equipped house, better than any holiday cottage we have stayed at in the past. I would recommend this for people who enjoy walking especially, as it is right at the bottom of a hill summit and there are plenty of walks nearby. The location is close to Ludlow and there are easy routes to tourist attractions.”
- “Lovely Cottage, fantastic views and unique décor!”
- “We had the most wonderful time.The cottage has everything anyone would need and one of the most important things - enough cutlery, plates, etc so we didn't need to keep washing up the minute we'd finished eating. It was so comfortable and homely. The kitchen has ample space and all the whole house very tastefully decorated and with excellent beds. We loved it. We will definitely be in touch to come again. Thoroughly relaxing time had by all.”
- “The cottage was just what we hoped it would be and a good time was had by all.”
- “There was plenty of space in the house, which was warm and full of character. Our grandchildren loved the 'reading corner' just outside their bedroom and there were lots of toys, videos and books. The views from the house were spectacular and there were a number of lovely walks from the front door. A nearby disused quarry was like a giant adventure playground for the children.”
- “Beautifully decorated cottage (two knocked into one) with plenty of space for all10 adults to be together for big meal times and board games, but also enough rooms to have a breather from each other too! Plenty of utilities, kitchen implements, maps, books, DVDs, etc. Lovely to have an open fire and to try and use an AGA. Comfy beds and powerful showers. Great location next to Clee Hill with walks nearby.”
