About the location

Caynham

Ludlow 3 miles; Church Stretton 15 miles.

This historic, picturesque village lies in the heart of the beautiful South Shropshire countryside and is set amidst renowned scenic walking and cycling country. The village's outstanding landmark is Caynham Camp, a huge Bronze Age/Iron Age earthwork which covers a site of eight acres at the summit, from which wonderful views can be enjoyed. Only 3 miles away is Ludlow, whose medieval street pattern remains almost intact, and provides a fascinating backdrop for the town's regular street markets, held in the shadow of the castle. Ludlow is renowned for its shopping, and has several Michelin-starred restaurants, as well as numerous tea-shops, pubs and inns. Below the 900 year old castle, the Linney Riverside Park offers boats for hire, a putting green and children's play area. Within easy reach of Church Stretton, Shrewsbury and Hereford, as well as popular attractions such as Ironbridge Gorge, Severn Valley Railway, Berrington Hall and Cardingmill Valley, Ludlow is a superb destination for a relaxing break.

The seal of approval is in our booking of the property for another week. The welcome on arrival; the small but well thought out touches. The overall presentation and cleanliness of the property. Comfortable furnishings and fittings. The help provided by the owners family when asked for, a very nice family.

Location good, cottage excellent, owners excellent. Overall very satisfied. Lovely warm cottage to walk into after a cold day outside.

Miss Balfour, Ingle Farm, December 2013

An excellent property, decorated to a very high standard and very well equipped.

Mr Turner, Sutton-in-Ashfield, November 2013

The cottage was excellent, spotlessly clean, warm and had plenty of kitchen utensils. We were mainly there to attend the Ludlow Medieval Christmas Market but also enjoyed the local walks! Would certainly return to this property.
