Shrewsbury 7 miles; Oswestry 8 miles.
The pretty hamlet of Wilcot nestles in the beautiful Shropshire close to the wooded slopes of the Nesscliffe Hill Countryside Forestry Park and Nesscliffe village, which has a hotel and a renowned pub with excellent restaurant. The wonderful medieval town of Shrewsbury, which is set into a loop of the River Severn and is often considered one of England's finest towns, is only 7 miles away. Famous for its timber framed, black and white buildings, the town offers a fine selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as being home to Shrewsbury Abbey, founded in 1083, and to the fictional Brother Cadfael, whose chronicles were set in and inspired by the town. Shrewsbury Castle, an impressive sandstone building in beautiful gardens and grounds, is well worth a visit, as is peaceful Quarry Park, home to the annual Shrewsbury Flower Show each August and featuring a beautiful sunken floral area called The Dingle.

Previous visitors' comments about Little Maltings:
Very cosy cottage, was a nice place to be when the weather was bad. Made to feel very welcome by the owners.
Mrs Dawson, Folkestone, September 2012
Excellent location for our needs with access to Shropshire and North Wales. The on site owners were particularly welcoming. Cottage was well appointed and larger than many which we have used before. Very rural and yet only a few miles from town, should you need it. Excellent accommodation.
Mr Edwards, Doncaster, September 2012
The setting of the property, the style of the property. The friendliness of the owners of the property, they were helpful in suggesting places to visit. They were helpful without being intrusive.
