  • "Quirky cottage with 3 garden areas; very individual décor (the owner has obviously travelled extensively and has a sense of humour)."

    We had a lovely relaxing stay. Much Wenlock is a pretty little town and there is plenty to do and see in the area. Scenery is superb. Our holiday got off to a very bad start (another holiday company completely, nothing to do with Sykes or Lea Cottage) but Sykes stepped in and found this cottage for us (Bank Holiday weekend) - contacted the owner and arranged the stay. Thank you so much to Sykes and the owner for saving the day for us. 10*. Highly recommended all round.

The property

This delightful Tudor style cottage is nestled near Stretton Westwood on the edge of the Shropshire Hills.

With an antique Far Eastern feel throughout, this characterful home makes an ideal base for a group to explore the beauty of the Shropshire countryside.

Past a welcoming sitting vestibule area, the kitchen is well-equipped for all your holiday needs.

In the spacious sitting area you are struck by a large fireplace, currently housing an electric flame-effect fire, with leather sofas to help you unwind in front of the TV.

A few steps take you up to a dining room with antique furniture to host your meals, alongside a wonderfully presented double bedroom with charming wooden beams making you feel right at home.

Upstairs are two spacious double bedrooms set into the sloping roof of the cottage, with a bathroom offering a modern rain shower enclosure.

The cottage is reached via a gravel drive which is surrounded by lawns, but the pathway to the home provides you with a lawned area in which to soak up the sun, or there is a patio area for the chef to conjure some magic at the gas barbecue.

A two-mile journey takes you to the amenities on offer in the town of Much Wenlock, or if you fancy a slightly livelier venue then continue on to Telford a further eight miles up the road.

The delights of Shrewsbury are sixteen miles away, or why not drop in on the riverside historical charm of Ironbridge – assuming you can tear yourself away from the beauty of the Shropshire Hills.

Lea Cottage is a charming and characterful cottage just minutes from Much Wenlock, neatly placed for exploring all the options that Shropshire has to offer.

About the location


Bridgnorth 8 miles; Shrewsbury 12 miles; Ludlow 21 miles.

This delightful 700-year old market town lies on the north east end of the famous Wenlock Edge, in the heart of the beautiful Shropshire countryside. Considered the birthplace of the modern Olympic Games, the town is filled with a patchwork of twisting streets, black and white half timbered buildings, limestone cottages, speciality shops, quality pubs and restaurants. Stroll round the remains of the magnificent 12th century priory, 16th century Guildhall, the interesting Norman church and the Old Gaol House. Above the town rises the 15 mile long Wenlock Edge, boasting glorious views and excellent walking, cycling, and riding. Nearby are the wonderful medieval towns of Shrewsbury, Bridgnorth and Ludlow, the World Heritage Centre of Ironbridge with nine museums and Blists Hill Victorian Village, plus the amazing Wroxeter Roman City and Stokesay Castle.
