The property

Church Preen 1.5 miles.

An immaculately-presented, modern cottage, attached to the owner's own home, in the lovely rural setting of Church Preen, a small scattered hamlet, close to Wenlock Edge and Church Stretton, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Attractively furnished throughout, the cottage provides light and airy contemporary accommodation for friends and family wishing to appreciate one of the most beautiful areas in Shropshire, surrounded by unspoilt countryside.

Set over two floors, there is a king-size double bedroom and a double bedroom situated on the first floor.

Downstairs the open plan living area is stylishly furnished with sitting and dining areas and a well-equipped kitchen.

French doors lead out to the pretty enclosed garden with views across open fields.

Sit and relax on the patio and enjoy the peace and tranquillity with a good book to keep you company or rustle up a tasty barbecue after a day exploring the local area renowned for its walking and beauty.

There are local walks with footpaths close to the cottage and cycle routes on your doorstep filled with an abundance of wildlife.

With the market towns of Much Wenlock and Church Stretton close by there is much to see and do, with interesting historical architecture, independent shops, local markets, Wenlock Priory and Buildwas Abbey to explore and fabulous walks along Wenlock Edge and across Long Mynd and Carding Mill Valley.

Ironbridge and the World Heritage museums of Blists Hill and Coalport are well worth a visit as is the medieval county town of Shrewsbury.

Ludlow with its cobbled streets, 12th century castle and Michelin-starred restaurants has much to offer, as has Bridgnorth, with its town split by the River Severn, linked by a myriad of winding steps and a funicular railway.

Steam railway enthusiasts can enjoy a ride from Bridgnorth to Bewdley and on to Kidderminster or simply sample the delights of the station itself, taking in some refreshment in the Railway Arms on site or one of the many local Bridgnorth pubs scattered throughout the town, selling locally-brewed beers and serving good food.

The Willows is a delightful, secluded cottage in a pretty rural setting, just perfect for relaxation and an ideal base for exploring the local area.

A wonderful holiday base for friends and family, whatever the season.

About the location


Much Wenlock 6 miles; Church Stretton 10 miles; Shrewsbury 13.3 miles; Bridgnorth 14 miles; Ludlow 20 miles.

Church Preen is a dispersed hamlet and small civil parish in central Shropshire. It is close to the small, popular town of Much Wenlock, a stunningly beautiful medieval town which also played a part in the birth of the modern Olympic Games. In recognition of our sporting heritage, the 2012 London Olympic Games named one of their mascots Wenlock. Church Stretton lies in the heart of South Shropshire. The town sits amidst striking scenery and has often been described as "Little Switzerland". The town is the main centre for the Shropshire hills; the only town in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and home to a variety of tea rooms, pubs and specialist shops. Other local attractions include walks on the Long Mynd, the Acton Scott Historic Working Farm and Stokesay Castle. The historic towns of Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Ironbridge, Much Wenlock and Bishops Castle are only a short journey away, making Church Preen an excellent base for your Shropshire escape.
