The pretty village of Cardington lies amongst the rolling hills of the South Shropshire countryside. Cardington boasts the oldest pub in Shropshire – The Royal Oak, mentioned in the Domesday Book! Its rural situation is ideal for sightseeing, with miles of country walks in all directions, not to mention the beautiful Shropshire hills - a draw for walkers, riders and nature lovers alike! A wealth of birdlife (including buzzards, woodpeckers and ravens) has its home here. Acton Scott Historic Working Farm, Severn Valley Steam Railway, Stokesay Castle, Shrewsbury, Ludlow and the Ironbridge Gorge, with its 10 museums, are each less than 15 miles away. The attractive market towns of Church Stretton (known as "Little Switzerland" by the Victorians) and Much Wenlock are both close by and offer a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants. A superb location!

It was one of the best holidays we have ever had. Everything has been perfect! Very cosy and the games room, tennis court, playground and the surrounding is amazing.

The log fire was very much appreciated. We found the owners of the cottage very friendly. The overall impression of the cottage is very cosy and welcoming.
Mrs Panting, Swindon, September 2012
We have never been to Shropshire before and we found it to be a beautiful county. Plenty of things to do and see and we will certainly be making a second visit.
Mr Gooch, Colchester, June 2012
Exactly as the brochure says - the property is in a peaceful location and the friendly owners could not do enough to look after our needs. We liked the fact that pets are welcome, and we have booked again for next year.
