  • “Beautiful cottage with all the facilities we wanted and kept v clean, with great setting close to all amenities of much wenlock.”

    It’s an ideal base to explore Shropshire. The fact that WiFi was down until BT dig up the road was an issue for us but not the owner’s fault.

The property

A romantic retreat resting within the bustling town of Much Wenlock, situated a mere stone’s throw away from the breath-taking Shropshire Hills AONB.

Queens Cottage is an idyllic base for a couple seeking to explore all of the delights of this town, as well as the surrounding countryside which is superb for those who enjoy walking and exploring the outdoors.

Be welcomed into the sitting room, where you will find a wonderful blend of contemporary design with antique furnishings to ensure a charming base to return to each evening.

Look forward to relaxing into your evening curled up on the sofa which rests in front of an exposed brick wall and a roaring woodburning stove filling the room with warmth.

Beyond here is the well-equipped kitchen, which comes with all the essentials to whip up home-cooked meals for you and your partner to enjoy at the dining table over a deserved glass of wine.

The charming interior continues onto the first floor, where you can look forward to retiring to the king-size double bedroom and preparing for your day within the spacious dressing room with views across the historic town.

The interior is completed by a well-presented shower room, complete with a quirky mirror design and a walk-in shower.

To the outside, you will find a quaint courtyard where you can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining and a laundry room for your convenience.

If you can tear yourself away from this wonderful base, a short stroll will bring you to a selection of pubs and restaurants to choose from, as well as a choice of shops for picking up the essentials.

Brush up on the local history by visiting the remains of the 12th century priory, 16th century Guildhall, the Norman church and the Old Gaol House.

For those feeling active, there is the nearby Wenlock Edge offering a series of woodland walks, a magnitude of cycle routes, a rustic bird hide and fossil hunts to enjoy.

Further afield attractions include the medieval town of Shrewsbury and the World Heritage Centre of Ironbridge, with its nine museums.

Queens Cottage is a refreshing getaway for a couple looking to explore this part of the country.
