  • "We really enjoyed our stay, comfortable, warm, clean and spacious."

    Good location to use as a base to explore the local area and towns of Shropshire. The Stiperstones walk is beautiful and it's definitely worth a visit to the Stiperstones Inn for a Lamb Shank!

    The children loved their 'private wing' with the secret door. Thankyou.

  • "Excellent place to spend time."

    We enjoyed. Nearest shopping (petrol / co-op) is around 10 mins drive. Car is must to be around. Best to keep some basic necessary items (food / medicines) handy- just incase. Very quiet place with only few houses around.

Nestled in the village of Shelve, near to Stiperstones in the heart of the Shropshire Hills AONB, is this detached family home, Middle Farm.

Formerly an old Coaching Inn, this welcoming abode is ideal for families and friends seeking a rural escape to Shropshire.

Upon arrival you are greeted by ample off-road parking, providing plenty of space for off-loading your bags and personal belongings.

Boasting a real sense of character, the sitting room comes with a sumptuous corner sofa, a Smart TV and an alluring woodburning stove, creating a cosy ambiance following a day’s adventure.

Move into the country-style kitchen, appointed with a range cooker amongst other appliances and wooden units, creating a fabulous spot to whip up family feasts.

Serve the fruits of your labour in the dining room or take the evening outside to the patio furniture and enjoy alfresco dining.

There’s also a conservatory where you can relax in the egg chair and lose yourself in a good book.

As you look to catch some rest, four delightful bedrooms await; the master hosts a king-size and single bed, while there are also one king-size, one double and a triple bunk room, providing plenty of options for families and groups of friends.

Begin the morning with a rinse in the shower room or bathroom before enjoying a fresh coffee and planning the day ahead.

From the property there are plenty of fantastic walking opportunities; join the Stiperstones Ridge Walk and explore rocky and spectacular landscapes that are steeped in myth and legend, while those seeking a more leisurely route can follow the Shopshire Way footpath.

For your local amenities, the village of Stiperstones offers a convenience store and pub, or for even more excitement, venture into Bishop’s Castle where you will be greeted by historical wonder in the form of listed timber frame buildings, quaint shops and a “House on Crutches”.

Other attractions in the area include a variety of National Trust properties and gardens, the Ironbridge World Heritage Site with its ten museums, the Wroxeter Roman Ruins, Stokesay, Ludlow castles, Church Stretton, Shrewsbury and much more in the beautiful region of England.

At the end of each day, return to the charm and character of Middle Farm and recharge for the next adventure.
