Enjoy the 'great outdoors' in a Church Stretton cottage
scattered in and around this historic market town on the
English/Welsh border. Situated in an AONB renowned for ancient rock
formations, it attracts lovers of fresh air and countryside.
There's no better place to lace up than a Church Stretton
cottage, with miles of wonderful walking in the Shropshire Hills on
your doorstep. Known as 'Little Switzerland' during
Victorian times, Church Stretton proudly boasts the 'Walkers
Welcome' status and hosts a Walking Festival every June. For
amazing panoramic views, head to the top of the Long Mynd, looming
high above town and featuring a rocky plateau - you can take the
shuttle bus up at weekends and then enjoy the downhill walk back.
The Long Mynd is also known for golf, gliding, hang gliding and
paragliding, as well as horse riding and mountain biking along
Back in town visit the thriving antiques' centre. Browse a
wide variety of independent shops or stalls at the twice-weekly
market. Look out for the rather crude Sheela-na-gig at the Norman
church of St. Laurence. Break for refreshments in cosy tearooms,
cafes and traditional inns. Or play crazy golf in the Town Park. In
addition to walking, annual events range from real ale trails,
music and art to summer and festive carnivals.
Our Church Stretton cottages also make great bases from which to
tour the surrounding area, filled with interesting towns and
attractions like vineyards, castles and Michelin-starred dining
