    When booking smaller cottages I am sometimes nervous about the car parking arrangements which can be quite difficult after a long drive. I well remember a property in Wales where the passenger had to exit the car and the wing mirrors pulled back before the car could be driven into the minuscule space. No worries here as beyond the 5 bar gate there is a large courtyard where you can easily turn any car. ...

    When booking smaller cottages I am sometimes nervous about the car parking arrangements which can be quite difficult after a long drive. I well remember a property in Wales where the passenger had to exit the car and the wing mirrors pulled back before the car could be driven into the minuscule space. No worries here as beyond the 5 bar gate there is a large courtyard where you can easily turn any car. The cottage itself is well laid out and all on one floor. It is a mixture of olde worlde accommodation and up to the minute appliances. Perfect for two people. Although we weren't on holiday we appreciated the thought that had gone into the outside seating arrangements which would have been more used had the sun shone! The village of Knockin itself is very pretty and whilst the novelty of the "Knockin Shop" soon wears off the local pub (Bradford Arms)was a revelation. Certainly one of the best pubs for value ,service and quality of food that we have come across. A great place to visit.

About the location

KNOCKIN

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.
