The property

Tucked away in the heart of Bishop's Castle, you will find this charming holiday home, The Cosy Retreat.

Surrounded by the magnificent scenery of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this humble abode is the perfect for a small family or group of five who wish to discover the beautiful English countryside.

Step inside this wonderful dwelling and be greeted by a pretty sitting room with a woodburning stove, where you can spend many of your evenings unwinding with loved ones.

Make yourself feel right at home as you take to the quaint yet well-equipped kitchen and prepare a hearty home cooked meal for all to enjoy whilst gathered in the dining room and indulging in a delicious bottle of bubbly.

Head out into the garden, where you can delight in dinner alfresco as you bask in the last of the day's sunshine.

Back inside a quaint utility awaits you.

From here a light and spacious shower room completes the first floor, whilst three restful bedrooms consisting of a king-size, a twin and a single sit peacefully on the first floor.

Uncover the hidden gems of Shropshire with days spent wandering the centre of Bishop's Castle where you will find a sea of amenities such as a well-established store and a handful of pubs and restaurants, as well as attractions such as The House on Crutches and the Bishops Castle Heritage Resource Centre where you can learn of the local history.

Step back in time at the Acton Scott Historic Working Farm, a pleasant drive away, or head for the town of Craven Arms to visit the Land of Lost Content Museum and the Medieval English Heritage site of Stokesay Castle.

Embark on a breath-taking hike through the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or grab your bikes and head for a thrilling cycle through Harton Hollow Nature Reserve.

Climb to the top of Ragleth Hill and admire 360-views across the open landscapes, or cross the border to Wales and discover the opulent manor house of The Naissance Experience at Glansevern Hall Gardens over in Montgomery, and the National Trust owned Powis Castle and Garden.

Head into the neighbouring town of Church Stretton and explore the Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd, or travel to Shrewsbury to tour the National Trust owned Attingham Park Estate, Shrewsbury Prison and the 11th-century fortress of Shrewsbury Castle.

With all this and so much more to look forward to, be sure to book a stay at The Cosy Retreat.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
