Just two miles away in the village of Wistanstow is the Plough Inn, a good local wood brewery. Church Stretton is close by and nestles between the Long Mynd and Caradoc Hills, renowned for their scenic walks and excellent golf course. The historic towns of Bishops Castle, Ludlow and Shrewsbury are a short drive away, and offer magnificent castles, riverside walks, wonderful shops, pubs, restaurants, exciting theatres and a variety of festivals.

The cottage was perfect in a lovely location with lots to do and see.
Miss Macparland, Liverpool, April 2013
Represented great value for money and provided exactly what we needed with two dogs. It was very well placed for getting out to the classic Shropshire walks and also had nice walks direct from the property. We found it very peaceful and extremely comfortable. We would recommend it very highly!

Very spacious accommodation, particularly the large and well equipped kitchen. The enclosed and secure garden was also a boon for our dog.
