  • “The Big Dingle was a fabulous house, set in beautifully tended gardens.”

    The younger children loved the swings and exploring. The facilities were excellent and the 4 different living areas were all fully utilised from using the Xbox for the older children to peaceful reading in the conservatory. The beds were really comfortable and the bedding was high quality and clean. The whole house was spotless. Two ovens, range style gas hob, microwave, two fridges, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and separate dryer. Fantastic and again spotlessly clean. The owners were ...

The owners were friendly and very helpful with local knowledge. Nearest small town of Church Stretton is lovely and we did all of our shopping there. I would definitely recommend a stay in this beautiful house.

The property

Church Stretton 3.7 miles.

This immaculately presented, detached house is surrounded by extensive gardens and rests in the peaceful village of Leebotwood near Church Stretton, just outside of the Shropshire Hills AONB and directly on the walking paths and road that leads up to the hills.

This large fully refurbished four-bedroom property is ideal for a family or group of eight wanting to explore the countryside of the Shropshire Hills, as well as being within easy reach of the busy historic towns of Shrewsbury, Much Wenlock, Ludlow and their attractions.

The property has a large gravel driveway with plenty of off-road parking and as you enter the property, you will discover a grand, spacious kitchen/diner, with a large dining table that can seat 12, beside a lovely woodburning stove, that can fill the room with warmth on a cooler evening, while on a warm summer's day, you can throw open the patio doors that lead into the garden, allowing a fresh breeze inside.

The fully-equipped kitchen has all of the appliances you could wish for, including two fridges and a double oven, and there's even a wine cooler, so you can have a bottle of bubbly ready to celebrate your holiday, while the adjacent utility houses the washing machine and tumble dryer.

The property benefits from two sitting rooms; one larger room with three sofas, placed around the coffee table and in front of the wall-mounted TV, while the smaller snug area benefits from a woodburning stove and a bookcase in the alcove, so you can curl up with a good read and relax.

The conservatory provides an additional quiet space for reading, or for simply looking out onto the picturesque garden, and the convenient cloakroom with basin, WC and coat hanging completes the ground floor layout.

Upstairs, you will find four pristine, neutrally styled and spacious bedrooms all with their own TV, consisting of a master super-king-size double with Velux window and dressing table and a handy en-suite, a second super-king size with zip/link feature that can be turned into a twin, a double room and a twin room, all served by the fully-tiled white family bathroom suite.

Outside there is an extensive, immaculate lawned garden with a swing, lockable shed and 2 large patio tables with chairs to accommodate all guests, ideal for taking advantage of the good weather and enjoying an alfresco meal.

The village of Leebotwood offers a pub and farm shop, as well as a brook you can enjoy strolls alongside.

Church Stretton is less than four miles away, tucked inside the Shropshire Hills AONB and surrounded by stunning scenery, hence why it's fondly nicknamed "Little Switzerland".

From here, you can access fantastic walking and cycling routes, including the heather-clad hills of Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd, while adventures will enjoy a day at the Shropshire Hills Mountain Bike & Outdoor Pursuit Centre.

There are many landmarks and visitor attractions to appreciate, with the remarkable English Heritage Stokesay Castle, Land of Lost Content museum and the Victorian farm of Acton Scott Historic Working Farm.

The historic towns of Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Ironbridge, Much Wenlock and Bishops Castle are all within a short drive, offering attractions, shops and dining out experiences, while the picturesque countryside of Cannock Chase is also within easy reach.

The Big Dingle is a fantastic, family-friendly base for an outdoor adventure, exploring the Shropshire Hills.
