The rural hamlet of Wall-under-Heywood is near to the pretty village of Cardington, which lies at the foot of Caradoc and Lawley Hills 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 all year round location!

The standard and quality of everything, from the owners hospitality and friendliness to the house, just perfect. Everything and more that we expected. The location and the attractiveness were perfect.
Mrs Gauci, Gozo, January 2013
Relaxed, friendly family. The property feels private even though its in the same building as the owners. lovely cottage, light and airy but still cosy. Welcome pack & information was great as were the books. Great location to walk from & Church Stretton is a village full of country charm. I have already recommended this cottage to my friends.
Miss Colman, Welling, December 2012
The cottage was cosy, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. They had thought of just about everything we would need. Great attention to detail. The information pack was good and walking information and maps comprehensive and very useful.

This was an ideal location to explore Shropshire. The cottage was very nicely presented and the owners were friendly and helpful without being intrusive.
Mr Houke, Shildon, August 2012
We liked the property, the garden and the overall beautiful scenery. The rolling hills and extraordinary greenness everywhere were kindness to our eyes. Places to visit were not too far away so that was OK.
Mr Geall, Jersey, June 2012
Crispen Cottage is in a lovely location and the views are lovely. It was so nice to be able to open the door in the morning and see all the wildlife etc in the gardens and fields.
Mrs Gibson, Doncaster, May 2012
We were given a very warm welcome and much needed advice for walks in the area when requested. A lovely cottage in a wonderful location.
