  • “The cottage was really lovely a home from home.”

    It was clean and tidy and everything we needed for our stay.

    It was clean and tidy and everything we needed for our stay. Beautiful countryside views and very peaceful. The sign for the cottage was a little hard to see from the road but that was the only thing. Not far from Ludlow and other places of interest. A co/op store was only a short drive away. Wish we could have stayed longer.

The property

Ludlow 3 miles.

A delightful barn conversion cottage on a smallholding in the grounds of the owner's home, just outside the village of Caynham, three miles from Ludlow.

This superb property is an ideal location for friends or families to enjoy walking, cycling, fishing or birdwatching right on the doorstep.

The property benefits from underfloor heating throughout with each room being individually controlled, and it retains many features such as original beams and arrow slit windows.

There is a well-equipped kitchen with an American fridge/freezer, together with a dining area and sitting area with reclining sofas and a gas stove, making it the perfect place for relaxing after a day out and about.

The two stunning bedrooms both have en-suite facilities and also have the luxury of a TV and DVD in each room.

Doors from the sitting room can be swung open in the summer onto a rear paved area where you can dine alfresco or just sit and enjoy the distant views to Mortimer Forest.

Medieval Ludlow is a delight to spend time ambling around and is only a few miles from the cottage.

Discover its listed buildings, 11th century castle, famous food and cultural festivals, excellent restaurants, pubs and tea rooms.

Explore the historic market town of Church Stretton, known as Little Switzerland, with wonderful walking on the surrounding Long Mynd hills, as well as the World Heritage Site at Ironbridge, the Severn Valley Railway, Stokesay Castle, the Acton Scot Historic Working Farm and many National Trust houses and gardens.

A charming cottage for a memorable holiday at any time of year.

Note: This property is next to Ref. 16683, together they sleep 8.

About the location


Ludlow 3 miles; Church Stretton 15 miles.

This historic, picturesque village lies in the heart of the beautiful South Shropshire countryside and is set amidst renowned scenic walking and cycling country. The village's outstanding landmark is Caynham Camp, a huge Bronze Age/Iron Age earthwork which covers a site of eight acres at the summit, from which wonderful views can be enjoyed. Only 3 miles away is Ludlow, whose medieval street pattern remains almost intact, and provides a fascinating backdrop for the town's regular street markets, held in the shadow of the castle. Ludlow is renowned for its shopping, and has several Michelin-starred restaurants, as well as numerous tea-shops, pubs and inns. Below the 900 year old castle, the Linney Riverside Park offers boats for hire, a putting green and children's play area. Within easy reach of Church Stretton, Shrewsbury and Hereford, as well as popular attractions such as Ironbridge Gorge, Severn Valley Railway, Berrington Hall and Cardingmill Valley, Ludlow is a superb destination for a relaxing break.
