  • “The cottage was stunning, good value for money, spacious and had a great kitchen, a good set of cooking saucepans, utensils and crockery.”

    They were 2 showers, a great conservatory, with an amazing view and lovely garden. ...

    They were 2 showers, a great conservatory, with an amazing view and lovely garden. However, it was not very welcoming. I expected perhaps a few packaged teabags, a bit of coffee, a few biscuits, but there was nothing. I also expected a welcome book, but we had handwritten notes in a book with the bare essentials in, but nothing about when we leave. My sons got the keys as they arrived before us, so I never got to meet the keyholder. However, whilst I was having breakfast a man was coming round the property, round the back, looking at the beer bottles we had placed on the step outside ready to put in the bin in the light. I felt my privacy was invaded as I was not yet dressed. He was looking at a tile that had fallen off the roof and mentioned our bottles!! Another day when we were playing a game as a family outside, someone walked through the garden saying they were going to read the meter, possibly again the key holder. Inside the property, the decor was very dated, the rugs were very faded, the carpet not very clean in the lounge, we found food on the floor, the sofas uncomfortable with a throw over them. Unfortunately, there was also a chair that was broken that we could not use. I also found someone else's rolled up socks in the main bedroom drawers! We also had to hunt for toilet rolls. A map of where to go for a walk would be great. We could not walk on the road as it was 60mph and we only had fields full of sheep droppings by the property. The details also made it sound like you could walk to the local pub, which was one reason we chose the property, but that was impossible. Shropshire was amazing and the property is in a great location and we had a fantastic holiday!!

The property

A character, semi-detached barn conversion on the outskirts of the village of Hopton Wafers, near Cleobury Mortimer in south Shropshire.

A well-presented cottage situated in an ideal location for exploring the beautiful county of Shropshire, making an ideal base for families and groups of friends.

On entering the cottage, you will notice the character features of the property including high ceilings and the original wooden beams.

There is a spacious sitting room with plenty of comfy sofas in front of a feature fireplace housing a welcoming woodburner; a wonderful place to relax after a full day out and about exploring the area.

This leads into the lovely sun room which is a great place to relax whilst enjoying the amazing views of the garden and beyond.

The well-equipped kitchen has its own dining table and chairs, making a great sociable place for preparing and enjoying some home-cooked meals, as well as a separate dining room.

Upstairs there are three spacious bedrooms, one with its own en-suite facilities as well as a separate bathroom.

To the outside are large lawned gardens, making great places for pets and children to enjoy.

There are plenty of walking and cycling opportunities from the doorstep with the Clee Hills and its 3000-acre common close by, whilst the lovely Long Mynd Hills, known as Little Switzerland is an easy drive away.

The village itself is home to the traditional pub, The Crown at Hopton, which is known locally for a good selection of home-cooked food to enjoy.

A short drive takes you to the pretty town of Cleobury Mortimer which offers a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants.

Within 20 minutes takes you to the medieval town of Ludlow, which is famous for its castle as well as many food and drink festivals throughout the year.

Further afield are the towns of Bridgnorth, Much Wenlock and the World Heritage Site of the Ironbridge Gorge with its ten museums as well Shrewsbury, Kidderminster and Hereford to explore.

Whatever you decide to do, The Old Granary is a wonderful place to explore this wonderful county of Shropshire at any time of the year.
