  • "Nant-Isa is a lovely holiday cottage situated in a beautiful, quiet setting overlooking the Shropshire countryside."

    It gave us the perfect base for the autumn break we were seeking. The cottage is clean and comfortable and very well equipped - a true 'home from home'. The owner is friendly and helpful and provided a generous welcome pack of basic foods to get our holiday started. The goats, pigs and donkeys were a delight when they welcomed us over the fence after our days out. The cottage is warmed by central heating but has the added bonus of the log burner in the sitting room. We really enjoyed our 4 night stay, exploring the local towns and walks. I would recommend this holiday cottage and we hope to return in the future.

    Animals really friendly. The cottage feels like it is in the middle of nowhere but is actually in the middle of everything. Great walking and cycling from the cottage and within 10 miles. Just remember if cycling there are hills about.

  • "Comfortable, spacious, very well-equipped cottage in beautiful location with views of Stiperstones ridge."

    Warm welcome from Paul, Tracey, Bronwyn and Dylan. The cottage is on a smallholding, which accommodates sheep, goats, two donkeys and a pair of affectionate kune-kune pigs, great company visually and audibly. We were able to walk straight from the cottage to the ridge, where we saw red kites, curlews and other upland birds. Nice pub within walking distance, in Stiperstones, and buses run from there to Shrewsbury. Easy travel to Stokesay Castle (recommended), Powis Castle, Acton Scott Farm, the Long Mynd and Wenlock Edge. Nice pack of fruit and goodies on arrival. We loved this cottage and intend to come back soon.

    The gardens are pretty whilst the views, from inside & out, are beautiful and that whatever the weather. There are lots of walks, of differing lengths, straight from the front door. You could, however, just stay at the cottage to unwind in the peace & quiet. Thank you Tracy, Paul, Bronwyn & Dylan for your warm welcome, not just on arrival but throughout my stay. Thank you too for the welcome pack along with the nice touches such as hand soap at each of the wash basins & sink. I shall be sure, when I next visit, to bring enough carrots & apples so that the donkeys get a good supply of tasty treats!!

  • "We had a lovely time at Nant-Isa."

    If you love beautiful scenery, peace and quiet and animals this place is perfect for you. The cottage was spotless and cosy with everything we could want. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise, and the owners and their family warm and welcoming. For us the animals made this break, cats, dogs, donkeys, goats, chickens, sheep and a peacock and peahen - all very friendly. My daughter even got to hold a week old chick - a wonderful experience - thank you Bronwyn. The area is filled with walks and places to explore right on your door step. The walk up and across the Stiperstones is a must, Tankville and Snailbeach mines good to explore and Shelve forrest has a mountain bike trail. This is a hidden gem.

Perfectly placed to explore the local area with a great pub in the village. Good pub grub at really good value. If you run out of anything you have to visit Arkwright store attached to the pub. The smallest store in the country with the largest range of goods. I kid you not. You will be made very welcome at this lovely cottage and have a wonderful time. Enjoy

About the location

STIPERSTONES

Church Stretton 8 miles; Shrewsbury 12 miles; Bishop’s Castle 12 miles; Ludlow 27 miles.

The village of Stiperstones nestles in an unspoilt valley on the slopes of the beautiful Stiperstones Hill range and is only eight miles from the delightful Church Stretton and 12 miles from the historic towns of Shrewsbury and Bishop’s Castle. This small Shropshire village boasts a shop and charming inn and is a perfect starting point for many scenic trails, with the summit of the famous Stiperstones Hill, a 1.5 mile walk, and the East Ridge Wood mountain bike trails very close by. This area is a designated National Nature Reserve, a SSSI and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is consequently a favourite place for outdoor and wildlife enthusiasts. The Stiperstones Hill range is dominated by dramatic quartzite tors, which tower above an unspoilt heathland, the most famous is the Devil’s Chair, whilst Manstone Rock is the highest point at 536m above sea level and offers stunning views on a clear day. A short drive away is one of England's finest heritage towns with over 600 listed buildings; Shrewsbury nestles on a loop of the River Severn. Shrewsbury has a magnificent abbey as well as Shrewsbury Castle, which stands in beautiful gardens and is home to the Shropshire Regimental Museum. There's plenty of interesting things to do in the area, with Attingham Park, Wroxeter Roman City, the museums at Ironbridge, and the castle and Michelin-starred restaurants of Ludlow, all making this hillside village the perfect touring spot for your Shropshire adventure.
