  • Mr Bradford

    “Great cottage - very comfortable, well equipped, and in a great location for walking.”

    Great view over the valley from the cottage itself. Very friendly owner (Jo)

    Great view over the valley from the cottage itself. Very friendly owner (Jo) We booked via the "Dog Friendly Cottages" site which we've used before. I think the dog rules (not allowed on sofas/beds) should probably be specified on the listing as I can see that this may cause some surprise on arrival depending on your dog and approach to dog ownership. No issue with such rules but they should be available in advance of arrival

    - Mr Bradford, October 2020

    Thank you so much for your feedback which we value very much. We believe our 'doggy house rules' are fairly standard for self catering accommodation. They are in place for the comfort and safety of all guests, including those that do not own a pet and are consistent with Sykes Terms & Conditions which state that 'You must not allow pets on beds or on furniture within the Property and pets must not be left alone in the Property at any time'. We are so sorry that you were not aware of the rules but all prospective guests are asked to confirm that they have read the T&C's before they commit to their booking. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Ministerly 4 miles.

This semi detached cottage is located near the village of Hope boasting distant views of Bromlow Callow Hill.

Bring along your family and friends with much to explore at your own leisure.

The first room you come to is the sitting room, home to an inviting woodburning stove and featuring traditional ceiling beams.

Three steps down; the second sitting room houses a corner dining table, where you can enjoy your favourite meals before taking an afternoon break and reading a good book on the comfortable sofa.

Countryside views tie the space together well, perfect for spending time admiring the rolling hills.

Across the way, a family bathroom is neatly decorated, ideal for getting ready in the morning, or unwinding at night time.

The kitchen compliments the property style well, again matched with characterful beams and a stone wall.

Take the stairs where you will arrive at a twin bedroom with lovely views of the countryside.

The accommodation is completed by a super king-size bedroom with an en-suite.

On a pleasant afternoon, you can sit outside in the enclosed garden, which is home to a pond as a soothing extra.

With walks on your doorstep, the village of Minsterley has a shop and Post Office and an excellent fish and chip shop.

Whilst Pontesbury is just one mile away with its restaurants, Arscott Golf Club and Springlea Fishing Pools.
