  • “Great cottage, plenty of space for 2 people and 2 dogs although the gorgeous light coloured carpet a bit of a worry given the reservation for cleaning costs in the info book.”


    Lovely location and benefitted from the nearby pub being shut although sad for them. Fabulous walks and cycling from the door. Secluded garden very good for dogs and gravel makes clearing up easy. Our one problem was the bed! Too soft too small too bouncy, no doubt ok for small people. The bedside tables a challenge for any hot drink! Lovely views all around especially from the very solid bench at the front of the cottage. Conservatory very useful because the weather was cold but sunny so a good warm place to rest and take in the views. Log burner made for cosy evenings. Sun on some part of the garden all day and lovely sunsets. The steep drive a bit of a challenge but worth it for the views. The owners live attached but are very discreet and helpful when needed. Lovely birds on the feeder including nuthatch and lesser spotted woodpecker. All that being said we had a fabulous week. Thankyou Jo and Daniel.

About the location


Church Stretton 6 miles.

The rural village of Ratlinghope is scattered around a valley in the hills of the Long Mynd and Stiperstones, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It lies alongside the Darnford Brook, which originates at Wildmoor Pool in the hills above. This wonderfully scenic area provides beautiful walks and bike trails through the surrounding rolling hills, and the renowned Castle Ring, the earthwork of Ratlinghope Hill, is the fort described by Mary Webb in her novel "Golden Arrow". Only 6 miles away is the pretty town of Church Stretton often described as "Little Switzerland". The town is home to a variety of tea rooms and specialist shops. Other local attractions include walks on the Long Mynd, the Acton Scott Historic Working Farm and Stokesay Castle. The medieval towns of Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Ironbridge, Much Wenlock and Bishops Castle are only a short drive away. This whole area is renowned for its beautiful hill scenery and wonderful walking.
