  • "What a beautiful shepherd's hut, with good quality furnishings and cooking facilities and utensils."

    The bed was ultra comfy and warm. It was comfortably warm and cosy in the hut, despite the dreadful weather outside. The owners were kind ensuring we had enough food and wine as were unable to venture out one day due to the dreadful weather. Thank you Wendy and Richard. We look forward returning again in the summer..

    Thank you for your kind review. If you do rebook, I just hope you get better weather, as to be honest it couldn't of been any worse. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely stunning little property."

    So cosy and everything is brand new. The little wood burner was easy to operate, plenty of wood supplied and the warm feeling from it was so nice. I was impressed with fully equipped kitchen that has everything you can wish for. Little bathroom with big shower was a nice addition. Hut has plenty of windows so it’s bright and airy. Everything is well thought out and beautifully decorated. Located in the heart of Shropshire Hills, just by the stream, away from hustle and bustle - what more do you need. Property is dog friendly - same as all the pubs in the area. Owners are very friendly and helpful. I’m sure I’ll come back.

    Thank you for your lovely review. You left the place so clean I hardly new you'd been there! Property Owner

  • "The Shepherds hut was wonderful."

    Spotlessly clean. The location was exactly what we wanted. Quiet and lovely surroundings with plenty of space for our dog to roam around safely. Wendy was very welcoming when we arrived and helpful throughout with local information of places of interest, shops and pubs etc. We would certainly recommend visiting. Bob & Annette

  • "The shepherds hut was lovely; spotlessly clean with cute decorative touches."

    The owners had left a welcome pack of milk, tea bags, bread and butter, which was much appreciated. The location was wonderfully peaceful and there was so much outside space that we could let our dog roam freely and safely, it just meant we could put our feet up and really relax. There is lots to see and do within a short drive. Could maybe benefit from provision of an operating manual for the hob, as we struggled; but the owners were nearby, and quickly advised me on how to use it - and to be honest we are technophobes so maybe it was just us!! Great short stay and I would recommend

  • "A little gem, cosy shepherds hut in a secluded location."

    Had everything we needed for our stay, spotlessly clean and a thoughtful welcome pack included. Owner introduced herself on our arrival and was lovely, friendly and approachable so we knew if we encountered any problems she was on hand. Would recommend. The only thing that maybe could be improved is a more prominent sign on the main road as we sailed past it and had to stop and ask a neighbour where it was , which was not an issue but would probably be difficult to find if dark.

    Thank you for your kind review. We have taken on board your comment of improving our signs and are having them updated. It was lovely to meet you both and your very happy dog. Property Owner

The property

Bishop's Castle 6.3 miles.

This quaint pod lies within the owner’s grounds in a rural position on the edge of the Shropshire Hills AONB.

Enjoying a private setting with a decked area and off-road parking, Mucklewick Hollow provides an idyllic abode for couples and their canine companion, perfect for escaping everyday life and indulging in country life.

After a day of rambling the outdoors, kick off your walking boots and relax on the settee, accompanied by a charming woodburning stove which gently heats the space.

Move over to the kitchen and start preparing a home-favourite dish, making use of the electric oven and hob, before taking a seat at the dining table and toasting to a much-needed getaway.

The interior is uplifted by natural lighting; throw open the patio doors to bring the outside in, accessing the decked space where you can sit out on the furniture and take in the setting.

Freshen up in the shower room before heading to the double bed to catch your rest.

Awaken from a leisurely slumber and open the doors to the Juliette balcony; imagine lazing in bed whilst the birds chirp around you.

The surrounding area is a haven for walkers; head north to the Mitchell’s Fold Stone Circle, a 3000 year old monument nestled in grazing fields, or head south to the Bury Ditches and discover this British Iron Age hill fort.

Five miles away is the delightful village of Stiperstones, offering the essential amenities with the Stiperstones Inn providing a lovely spot for a drink and something to eat.

Explore into Bishop’s Castle where you will be greeted by historical wonder in the form of listed timber framed buildings, quaint shops and a “House on Crutches'' or head over the border into Wales and see the large Norman ruins of Montgomery Castle, the National Trust’s Powis Castle and Garden and the wonderful Welshpool & Llanfair Railway.

Escape to Mucklewick Hollow and enjoy a delightful retreat with your other half.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
