    “I had a wonderful time at Big Hill Cottage, an early review mentioned a time limit on the hot tub, but there was no such time limit for us and we enjoyed a lovely time in the hot tub.”

    Very comfortable bedrooms, two bathrooms each with their own bath, beautifully decorated. Excellent all round place to stay

The property

Big Hill Cottage is a delightful, end terrace cottage set in the small hamlet of Newnes where the owners family have farmed for seven generations since 1840 near to the outskirts of Ellesmere town.

The Newnes dates back to medieval times and gets its name from when King Edward II is said to have placed some new people on the property formerly occupied by displaced Welsh Rebels.

The origin of these people is unknown, but they were referred to as the 'neow-ones' (old English Neowe = new) hence the name Newnes.

From the outset, the property oozes luxury with a delightful blend of charming features and is a perfect base for a couple’s getaway.

As you enter the cottage you are greeted to a brightly decorated hallway, boasting a striking chandelier, before stepping in to a cosy sitting room with a woodburning-effect electric fire.

Following this is an elegant snug, boasting further seating with a woodburning fire, perfect for some quiet reading.

To the rear of the room, you will find a formal dining arrangement and a well-equipped kitchen, housing a stylish design.

Follow the staircase to the first floor, where you will find two delightfully appointed bedrooms, each boasting double beds, ample storage and breath-taking views of the countryside.

Completing the floor are two luxury bathrooms, complete with a bath with shower over, basin and WC.

Outside, you will be able to enjoy a glass of wine, whilst sat in the private hot tub with overlooking views of the countryside or make the most of the morning sunshine on the front lawned area.

The town of Ellesmere can be located within a mile of the property, where you will find a good selection of pubs, restaurants and shops, to ensure you have all the necessities required.

The town also hosts a range of activities to keep you busy, from here you can take a leisurely stroll along the beautiful Mere and Ellesmere Canal.

Places of interest nearby include Chirk Castle and Aqueduct and Powys Castle.

For a good day out take a trip to Bangor Races or even Erddig Hall.

Further afield you can visit the cities of Chester and Shrewsbury for great days out.

Also don't forget Offas Dyke and Kynaston Caves at Nesscliffe to enjoy.

Big Hill Cottage is a charming cottage, perfect for a relaxing holiday to the quaint area.

About the location


Oswestry 8 miles; Shrewsbury 17 miles.

The pretty market town of Ellesmere with its Tudor, Georgian and Victorian buildings quietly nestles between the Shropshire Meres and the well-known Shropshire to Llangollen canal, in an area renowned as Shopshire's Lakeland. Steeped in history and originally fortified as an Anglo-Saxon settlement, this peaceful town boasts a lovely church with a 15th century roof and was home to Thomas Telford during the building of the canal network in the late 18th century. The town also boasts a good variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as an abundance of entertainment on and around the meres in the surrounding area. Stroll through Cremorne Gardens, go fishing or boating, take some time to explore Colemere Country Park with its wonderful wildlife and scenic walks, or walk along the canal. A lovely location offering something for everyone at any time of year.
