The Property

Church Stretton 3 miles. This charming stone-built, semi-detached cottage, built in 1820, adjoins the owner’s attractive country house and gardens, in the rural hamlet of Cwm Head (meaning Head of the Valley), in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, three miles from Church Stretton. This charming Church Stretton cottage not only offers welcoming and cosy accommodation with a king-size double bedroom, bathroom, well-equipped kitchen and a sitting room with dining area, but the owner’s house is steeped in literary history. Children’s author Malcolm Saville sent his young family to live there during the war years of 1941-2 and he was inspired to write his ‘Lone Pine’ books using features of the lovely local landscape as his backdrop. This was featured on the BBC’s Olympics edition of Countryfile in July 2012. This scenic part of Shropshire is renowned for its hill walking and wildlife, as well as delightful Church Stretton, known as Little Switzerland. Enjoy days out to famous medieval Ludlow, the Shropshire Discovery Centre, Stokesay Castle, Acton Scott Historic Working Farm, delightful Shrewsbury and the Ironbridge World Heritage Site with its nine museums. This is the perfect Church Stretton cottage for a romantic break amidst lovely and peaceful surroundings.

The cottage was excellent, and its position in Shropshire was ideal, everywhere was accessible.

Mrs Perry, Feltham, October 2013

Lovely surroundings. Made to feel very welcome. Very comfortable and homely cottage in a lovely area.

Mr Haigh, Huddersfield, August 2013

Stable Cottage itself is comfortable, well appointed and very charmingly furnished. Its situation adjoining the owner's home, a former rectory, is equally pleasing, rural and peaceful. In July, with the garden in full bloom, the view from the sitting room across the terrace to a small woodland was a delight, as was the view of wild birds at the numerous bird feeders. The owner was friendly and helpful but not at all intrusive, and we positively enjoyed sharing space with them. We were blessed with perfect summer weather for our fortnight's stay, but it is clear that Stable Cottage has more than adequate central heating, and would be a very cosy place to stay off-season or in less temperamental weather.

Dr Burton, Penzance, July 2013

The cottage is in a delightful area. It is beautifully equipped and we could find no fault. The owner greeted us with chocolates and a bottle of chilled wine - a lovely touch. Can unhesitatingly recommend staying here for a quiet and restful holiday.

Mrs Quinney, Kettering, May 2013
