The property

This modern detached cottage is located on the outskirts of the Shropshire village of Harmer Hill, near Shrewsbury, and is surrounded by beautiful countryside.

Comfortably furnished throughout, this well-proportioned cottage is ideal for families and friends looking to explore Shropshire.

The cottage is set over two floors with a spacious hallway leading upstairs to the three good-sized bedrooms and a bathroom.

Downstairs there is a lovely sitting room with double doors out to the garden, a dining room and a well-equipped kitchen.

Enjoy the comfort of the deep sofas in the sitting room, a family meal around the dining room table or step outside into the pretty garden to enjoy cooking and dining alfresco.

The enclosed garden is mainly laid to lawn and set against a pretty wooded backdrop.

Great for dogs and children to play in or for adults to sit and relax over an early morning coffee or a refreshing drink at the end of the day.

Within a few yards of the cottage there is a lovely two mile walk to the pretty village of Myddle with a village shop and pub or the nearby Bridgewater Arms is a popular venue for an evening meal.

The fascinating private Sleap Airfield, the home of Shropshire Aero club, is a short drive away where you can discover its interesting past, visit the cafe, admire the panoramic views towards the Welsh hills or visit the museum.

Six miles away from this delightful cottage is the lovely medieval market town of Shrewsbury with its castle, gardens, museums, riverside walks and boat rides.

Here you will find an abundance of interesting architecture as well as many independent shops and cafes to explore.

Also nearby is the prestigious Concord College in Acton Burnell near the castle.

Travel in the opposite direction and you arrive at Ellesmere, known as the Lake District of Shropshire.

Nestling between the mere and the Shropshire Union Canal, this lovely little market town is well worth a visit and offers lakeside walks and cycle rides around the mere or along the canal towpaths.

Both Shrewsbury and Ellesmere can be reached using the regular bus service which stops just a few yards from the cottage.

The National Heritage Museums at Ironbridge are a fun day out for all the family, the Shropshire Hills offer stunning scenery and exhilarating walks, enjoy the festivals and attractions which take place throughout the year in the charming market towns, or simply relax in the beautiful Shropshire countryside.

A little further afield you can easily explore Mid Wales and the lovely coastal towns of Borth and Harlech.

This family-friendly cottage is ideal as a base to tour around the county of Shropshire with its Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, places of historic interest and abundance of pretty market towns and villages.

About the location


Shrewsbury 6.5 miles; Wem 4.5 miles; Ellesmere 10.9 miles.

Harmer Hill is a small village situated 6.5 miles north of the medieval Shropshire town of Shrewsbury and 4.5 miles south of Wem. The village is surrounded by beautiful countryside and yet is within easy access of much of Shropshire because of the excellent nearby road links. The village is home to two pubs and a village hall. The name Harmer comes from the two words "hare" and "mere", as there was a lake situated in a plain below the hill, but it was drained in the 15th century for farm land
