  • “Cannot speak high enough praise of Sarah - the owner.”

    She seemed to think of the little things. As the temperature rose she even went out of her way to bring us 2 electric fans!!! When we met her, she was so keen that our stay was fine.

    She seemed to think of the little things. As the temperature rose she even went out of her way to bring us 2 electric fans!!! When we met her, she was so keen that our stay was fine. The cottage was in a good position to get to places. It was in a very quiet situation but some good eating places within easy reach. Bed was really comfortable. Would award Sarah 11 out of 10!!

The property

Resting in the peaceful hamlet of The Lea, near Pontesbury, is this pretty barn conversion, Heribert Cottage.

This reverse-level property can sleep up to four guests, making it a quirky base for your next adventure to Shropshire, within 10 minutes drive of Shrewsbury town centre and Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

On the ground floor, there is a bathroom with a jacuzzi bath to relax in or a shower if you're quickly freshening up for the day.

There are two lovely cool double bedrooms with quality furnishings, one with a 3/4 4 foot double bed and a sofa.

Though the bedrooms are ground floor they have an elevated position which makes them feel like you are upstairs.

The bedrooms enjoy the morning sun (there are black out blinds) and views of the eucalyptus tree in the courtyard below.

A set of stairs lead you to the first floor with a Velux window and good ventilation where there is an open-plan living space, decorated with elephant tapestry and pictures of local scenes, as well as a well equipped kitchen for your self-catering requirements, a giant Ikea 3 foot sofa bed which transforms into a king size bed to offer flexible sleeping arrangements, a handy washing machine and beautiful countryside views.

Outside there is off-road parking, and shared steps down to its own pretty patio area with a choice of seating to enjoy the morning sun, indeed sun all day !

This enables you to enjoy a spot of alfresco dining or a glass of wine in the peacefulness of your surroundings.

Lea Cross has a good fishing village and Arscott Golf Course less than 1 mile away, and a Indian restaurant for if you don't feel like cooking.

Within walking distance down a quiet lane is the lovely village of Pontesbury with a good selection of shops. Within a short drive, you can get to the village of Hanwood where there is a Post Office/shop, a pub and a a Cambrian railway line running through, despite the train station being closed down in the 19th century.Nearby is The Shropshire Hills AONB with 802 square kilometers of stunning scenery extending to the border of Wales, with the opportunity to explore rare wildlife, challenging walking trails, and historic attractions.
