    “This was our third visit to Albeba - just as good as the previous two.”

    The nearby Stiperstones area is beautiful and not as well known as Long Mynd.

The property

Shrewsbury 3.5 miles.

This delightful detached bungalow lies close to the small village of Hook-a-Gate near Shrewsbury.

This charming bungalow is perfect for exploring Shrewsbury and the Shropshire countryside beyond.

From the hallway leads you into a well-equipped kitchen and there's a separate dining room available.

The relaxing charm of the sitting room includes two recliner chairs, as well as an electric stove.

A bonus to staying in this lovely property is the sun room, where you can enjoy a cup of coffee before venturing out for the day.

Two double bedrooms and a shower room complete this holiday home.

The beautifully kept grounds begin with the driveway surrounded by flowers and shrubs.

The garden is a well-maintained lawn area, with a small outdoor seating area and two delightful summerhouses.

If the sun is shining, why not partake in a spot of alfresco dining, the ideal place from which to look out across the rolling countryside.

A country walk will take you into Hook-a-Gate village for a pub meal, and the town of Shrewsbury is within reach, with its vibrant but charming town centre and historic buildings.

Beyond Shrewsbury are the full delights of Shropshire.

A longer drive will take you to historic Ironbridge to the east or south to Ludlow.

Or simply take a countryside drive around the Shropshire Hills.

Albeba is a delightful bungalow for exploring lovely Shropshire.
