    “I have stayed in many cottages and found this one the cleanest I have ever stayed in.”

    The owners were very welcoming and friendly. Absolutely fantastic cottage. Could not fault it in any way. Local pub serves lovely food. A brilliant rural retreat. Would highly recommend it.

Perfectly positioned in the walker's wonderland of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Nest's location provides a sanctuary of serenity, stunning scenery and a truly beautiful base from which to explore.

The philosophy of Nest Holiday Hideaway is 'Transformational Travel', a rural retreat where you can de-stress, relax and revitalise, embedded in beautiful surroundings and the sights and sounds of nature, whilst also being near and having great access to magnificent market towns such as Shrewsbury and Church Stretton and Shropshire's myriad other unique attractions.

Dove Cottage is a beautiful, cosy bolthole of immense character and charm uniquely, lovingly created from an 18th century barn and set in perfect countryside, with a wealth of wood beams, exposed stonework and a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
