  • “The owner booked the accommodation and failed to inform Sykes so it was double booked.”

    I called to arrange collection of the keys and was told they had already got someone staying there. This is no fault on Sykes part. This was the owners not informing them that it had been let to someone else.

The property

This semi-detached, traditional countryside home is situated in the town of Oswestry, Shropshire.

Stepping into the cottage, you will be charmed by a small entrance porch which leads into a homely, country-style dining room complete with traditional stone exposed walls, wooden beam ceiling features and a warming woodburning fire to gather around and enjoy delicious home-cooked meals.

Enter into the kitchen to find a rustic wooden kitchen, well equipped with a large, electric range cooker, dishwasher and a characterful exposed stone wall.

You will also find a convenient utility room, which provides a large fridge, freezer and a washer/dryer.

Beyond this, you will discover a country-style bathroom, complete with a traditional claw foot bath with an over head shower, WC, hand basin, and a heated towel rack.

Also accessible through the dining room, a spacious sitting room can be found at the end of the corridor, with traditional wooden ceiling beams, plenty of seating including a reclining chair and foot stool, TV and an electric stove fireplace with a homely inglenook chimney you can cosy up in front of.

Upstairs take the the first right and you'll find a charming double bedroom with built in storage space, a hand basin and mirror, plus a twin bedroom with a traditional low-sloping ceiling and exquisite front garden and open field views.

Completing the second floor is a double bedroom with stylish decor and a window seat to sit for some quiet time with additional marvelous countryside views.

A contemporary en-suite is also included within the double bedroom and features a walk in shower, WC, hand basin and ample storage cupboards for belongings.

Guests can benefit from picnic tables and benches that are located in the communal front garden, perfect for the summer months.

The cottage is just a few miles from Oswestry town centre and all its amenities, including a selection of exciting restaurants, pubs, shops, and markets for fun family afternoons out.

Take in the sights of Cae Glas Park or play a few sports, and for a taste of history, why not visit the the Cambrian Railway Museum, the Owestry Town Museum, or Whittington Castle, which is only 3 from the town centre?

Offa's Cottage is an idyllic rural retreat for families and friends alike seeking to explore the idyllic Shropshire countryside and all that it has to offer.
