    “The cottage, village and surrounding areas were perfect despite the very wet weather!”

    The cottage owners were so helpful and friendly and we had a great week.

    - Mr Roberts, June 2019

The cottage

A characterful detached new property but in the style of a barn conversion sitting in the grounds of the owners Grade II listed timber framed farm house.

The Property is situated in the historic village of Knockin.

Suited for friends or families, visitors can enjoy the heart warming interior, which makes a great base after a day exploring the local area.

The sitting room is home to an 'L' shape leather sofa so you can relax in the evening.

French doors lead out to the courtyard, and a rustic dining table rests close by, perfect for relaxing in the morning or during dinner time.

Paneled wall heaters are a lovely addition to the setting, so you can cosy up in the warmth and watch TV or enjoy the selection of books and games.

The kitchen sits to the back of the room holding all of the essentials you may need, finished with a contemporary overtone.

Moving round, an elegant double bedroom houses an oak wardrobe, bed and bedside tables, overlooked by Velux windows. The twin bedroom is complimented by striped bedding and boasts a friendly feel for a slight variation to the previous.

Both rooms come complete with an en-suite, one with a bath and the other holds a walk-in shower to meet your preferences day to day.

On a nice afternoon, why not rest in the courtyard which hosts a bench, ideal for enjoying some 'me' time away from it all.

The village of Knockin is located between the lovely town of Shrewsbury and the market town of Oswestry both of which have excellent pubs, restaurants and other amenities.

Guests to the area can enjoy Whittington, Powis and Chirk castles and the World Heritage Site of Iron bridge Gorge, with its ten museums.

There are excellent walking and cycling opportunities nearby.

You will be spoilt for choice all year round.

About the location


Oswestry 7 miles; Shrewsbury 15 miles.

The historic village of Knockin is conveniently located between the lovely town of Shrewsbury and the market town of Oswestry and is close to the England/Wales border. The village was once part of the Bradford Estate and is home to the 12th century St. Mary’s Church, the Bradford Arms pub, which serves good food, and the renowned village store amusingly called “The Knockin Shop”. The village is an ideal base for touring all of beautiful Shropshire and Mid Wales, including trips to medieval Ludlow, Church Stretton, known as “Little Switzerland”, delightful Lllangollen, with its white water rafting, and the wonderful Lake Vyrnwy and Bala Lake. There are excellent walking and cycling opportunities along the Montgomery Canal and Offa’s Dyke Pathway and both are close by. Visitors to the area can also enjoy Whittington, Powis and Chirk castles and the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge, with its ten museums. This is an ideal base for exploring the whole of Shropshire and deep into Wales.
