Westhope Country Retreats

These five quality brick-built barn conversions are situated in a lovely courtyard setting on the owners' 250-acre farm, on the edge of Westhope village, just six miles from the delightful town of Church Stretton in Shropshire. Originally part of a 19th century stable block, these Westhope cottages have been sympathetically renovated and furnished to a high standard, boasting original, exposed beams and trusses throughout, yet offering all the comforts of modern living. Two of these lovely cottages boast their own private hot tubs, while all five have shared use of the games room and gym, great to while away the hours of an afternoon. Situated at the southern end of Wenlock Edge, the area offers great walking and cycling opportunities and provides a delightful location to relax and unwind.
