  • "Fantastic place to stay very clean modern and in a nice quiet location would like to go back again one day"

  • "A lovely modern, spacious, immaculately clean and comfortable bungalow within easy walking distance of the centre of the pretty town of Much Wenlock."

    We found ample places nearby to visit during our week, including the very interesting museum and the abbey ruins in Much Wenlock itself. It was an extra treat that our stay coincided with the end of the Much Wenlock Festival when a number of local cottages owners opened their delightful gardens to the public. We enjoyed our visits to nearby Ironbridge and its museums, Benthall Hall, Stokesay Castle, and Shrewsbury, and Shropshire countryside is beautiful. Can definitely recommend both this excellent bungalow and its location.

  • "Wow this Cottage is outstanding."

    Very clean and modern. Lovely comfy beds with high quality bedding. Modern kitchen with up to date appliances. Lovely clean, bright modern bathrooms. Lovely well kept Garden with slick modern paving slabs with table and chairs to eat al fresco. The Cottage is well situated in the lovely village of Much Wenlock, a short cut through the footpath opposite and you are in the village, with shops, tea rooms and pubs. Lots to do in the area, Ironbridge, a lovely town, with The Woodbridge in the next village Coalport in a beautiful setting by the river. Walks a plenty in the stunning countryside. The Stipplestones, quite a climb but so worth it for the amazing views, that will remain with me forever. Please don’t hesitate to book The Wheatlands, you won’t be disappointed!

  • "A wonderful cottage furnished to a very high standard."

    Much thought has been given to the layout of the property and indeed nothing has been overlooked.The beds were very comfortable and everything throughout the house was spotlessly clean. We have used Sykes on a number of occasions and the Wheatlands was by far the best. The property was well situated to visit the many places of interest in the area. Annie was very thoughtful as she contacted us on day of arrival to say that we could arrive earlier if we so wished. We would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage and understand why it attains to 5 star. Again, many thanks Annie for a wonderful holiday. Robert & Hilary

  • "Wow, what a fantastic cottage this is."

    The cottage is extremley well appointed, with very modern kitchen and bathrooms. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the facilities required are all covered. Annie was brilliant with communication, from letting us know we could enter the cottage earlier on arrival day to helping us with recycling arrangements, to feedback when we left the cottage. The cottage is perfectly placed in Much Wenlock for access to everything that Shropshire and Much Wenlock have to offer and believe me, it has tons to offer in things to see and do. If you are looking for a top quality cottage to use as a base for your visit to Shropshire, then look no further. With all this cottage has to offer and with the helpfullness of Annie you cannot fail to have a great time and be able to do it living in complete comfort. We have visited Shropshire many times over the years, but without a doubt, this cottage was the best.

    Thank you so much for your amazing feedback. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Can’t wait to welcome you back. Property Owner

  • "Really beautiful property, with everything we needed for a lovely stay during the Christmas period."

    The owner was very pleasant and went out of her way to make our stay comfortable. Definitely recommend the property although I wouldn’t recommend Sykes at all as we were completely ripped off by the renting of this! We were charged in excess of £300 during a telephone conversation with a bad signal and refused point blank to investigate this issue. One price on the internet and the other during the telephone conversation. Very spurious company of which myself and my family will no longer be dealing with.

    Locals are really friendly and always happy to have a chat. We made use of the great local pubs within walking distance and the lovely walks close by. Special mention must be made of the family butchers and pie shop, we took loads of supplies home with us. Visit Ironbridge, Shrewsbury and especially Bridgnorth for many interesting days out. We loved the area and will definitely return.

  • "A delightful cottage -well situated for an easy walk into the town."

    Additionally it was very well equipped with a super large kitchen, living and dining areas and three very comfortable bedrooms. The bathrooms and showers were great - and a big advantage were the electrical sockets positioned just where they were needed. Any contact with the owner was promptly responded to, so all in all we've have a lovely week's holiday.

    Although we never met Annie she was very pleasant and helpful when we did make contact with her. We have 3 young kids and the garden was good for them to play in, and a playground and field just around the corner were perfectly local. We had several local days out which were good fun for all of us (Ironbridge, Hoo Zoo and RAF Museum all recommended). A very enjoyable stay, thank you.

The property

Tucked away on a quiet side street, a stone's throw away from the heart of the charming market town of Much Wenlock, Shropshire rests this beautiful holiday home, The Wheatlands.

This property has been built to an exceptionally high standard of quality and design and boasts a luxurious contemporary interior.

The Wheatlands can comfortably accommodate family and friends alike looking to explore the delights of the picturesque Shropshire countryside.

Kick off your shoes as you enter the hallway before continuing through to the open-plan living area, flooded with light welcomed in through the elegant bifold doors.

The stylish kitchen includes fully integrated appliances built to a deluxe specification, wooden dining table with seating for six and a snug lounge area, offering a sociable space to gather with your loved ones after an adventure-filled day.

Stepping outside, the well-maintained garden provides a tranquil setting to enjoy a spot of alfresco dining in the warmer weather or indulge in a glass of fizz under the delightful canopy of the stars.

When it's time to rest your head, venture back inside where the ground-floor offers two bedrooms as well as a modern shower room, ideal for guests with limited mobility, offering the choice between a king-size room, where guests can wake up as the sun rises and fills the room with light welcomed through the patio doors, or a twin room with two sumptuous single beds.

Climb the stairs where you'll find a third bedroom, a spacious king-size, alongside a contemporary family bathroom complete with a walk-in shower and a bath, where you can enjoy a leisurely soak amongst the bubbles or a quick morning rinse.

Take a break from doing the cooking and take a short stroll into the heart of Much Wenlock, where you'll be spoilt for choice with a host of cafes, pubs and takeaways on your doorstep, or if you'd prefer, visit the family-run butchers, a favourite with locals, to pick up some fresh produce to prepare in the comfort of your holiday home.

Visit the quirky town of Bridgnorth, split in two halves by the flowing waters of The River Severn, where you can travel between the High and Low towns aboard the funicular railway alongside the towering limestone cliff, exploring the ancient remains of Bridgnorth Castle and the collection of heritage steam-hauled locomotives on display at Severn Valley Railway.

Head further afield to the vibrant town of Shrewsbury, the birthplace of Charles Darwin and home to the second most haunted jail in the world, where visitors can take a fascinating guided tour through the empty cells.

History buffs can explore the military artefacts on display at Soldiers of Shropshire Museum or if that's not your thing, head to Pride Hill Shopping Centre for a spot of window shopping.

Or take a boat trip “Sabrina” along the winding River Severn to view the historic bridges and acres of scenic parkland known locally as The Quarry.

If you’re looking for a more active walking break, look no further.

Designated an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) in 1958, the Shropshire hills have numerous National Parks, the Stiperstones is one of which.

A distinctive hill with a quartzite ridge located within the South Shropshire hills, it is a National Nature Reserve and area of scientific interest.

The varied and beautiful landscape of the rolling Shropshire hills and valleys attract avid walkers and nature enthusiasts from across the whole of the country.

The bustling medieval town of Ludlow is well worth a visit - famous for the expansive historical Ludlow castle, St. Laurence’s church, and of course the annual food festival.

It also has over 500 listed buildings as well as the eclectic Ludlow market.

For the aviation buffs among you, the museum at RAF Cosford offers a fun day out for all the family providing an outstanding display of aviation history, illustrated through a fantastic display of aircraft and exhibits.

Treat your loved ones to a tranquil retreat to the countryside with a stay at The Wheatland, with all the delights of Shropshire on your doorstep.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
