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 small 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 room currently set up as a play room for any children in your party.
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.
Over two floors. Three bedrooms: 2 x double with TV, 1 x ground floor single. Shower room with shower, basin and WC. Kitchen. Dining room. Sitting room with electric fire.
