    “Road access was dreadful.”


    The cottage is situated in a small village a couple of miles from the A49. The road is unclassified, tarmaced and very narrow with passing places in field gateways. There are high hedges on both sides of the road for the some of the route, which makes it impossible to see if any vehicles are coming in the other direction. We did try a couple of different roads both in and out of the village but found them to be much the same or worse. Lovely cottage, but there is no way we would go back because of the acces.

The property

Cosy cottage adjacent to the owner’s 17th century Grade II listed stone built cottage in the lovely Shropshire village of Picklescott.

Located in the northern foothills of the Long Mynd, this delightful cottage is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just 6 miles from the Victorian Spa town of Church Stretton and close to the county town of Shrewsbury.

Attractively furnished throughout, the cottage has a pretty twin bedroom, comfortable sitting room, bathroom and kitchen, offering all you need for a perfect retreat.

Relax on the comfortable sofas or step outside and enjoy the lovely cottage garden while you plan your next day’s excursions.

The idyllic village of Picklescott is at the halfway point of a delightful circular walk along small country lanes, whilst the surrounding area provides many scenic walks including the Shropshire Way, the stunning landscapes of the Long Mynd and Stiperstone Hills.

Visits to the bustling market town of Church Stretton nestling at the foot of the Long Mynd, medieval Shrewsbury with its lovely riverside walks, historic streets and theatre, wonderful Ludlow with its majestic 13th century castle, racecourse and popular food festivals and any number of museums at the World Heritage Site at Ironbridge, are all a must for visitors to this lovely part of Shropshire.

Take a leisurely stroll through the pretty village before quenching your thirst and grabbing a bite to eat at the locally renowned Bottle and Glass Inn, just round the corner from this cottage.
