The property

The small village of Ford lies in the county of Shropshire, and within its borders sits this beautifully structured property, Shoothill Lodge, built within this century but styled to replicate a coach house, bringing classic old with the contemporary new.

Suited for a family of six, the property boasts spacious rooms and fine decor.

Beginning with the delightfully elegant sitting room with cream and beige hues mixed with dark wood, you can easily see yourself sitting back on the large sofa and looking out onto the garden and patio beyond on a summers eve, with huge oak beams above and a beautiful woodburning stove to keep you warm in the winter months.

Enter the kitchen next door to find a beautifully finished room with lovely wooden units hiding the essential appliances you need for your stay, creating a seamless style, and with a door opening out onto the picturesque patio, you can bring the outside in while you prepare some salads for a summer barbecue, with the property benefiting from a Webber barbecue with all briquettes supplied.

Adjoining this room is the utility with a quirky sliding door, hosting the all-important washing machine and tumble dryer, a welcome extra when enjoying self-catering accommodation.

Two bedrooms are located on the ground floor, both excellent slumber spots, with the king size bedroom having patio doors looking out on towards the floral walled garden, while the twin room, with classic metal framed beds sits the other side of the contemporary bathroom holding a roomy P-shaped bath with a shower over.

Upstairs within the eaves but still offering good head-height is the master bedroom featuring a double bed, and an en-suite bathroom so you can enjoy a relaxing soak and then climb into bed to catch your rest for the next day.

After a lovely day exploring what a perfect way to end the day playing within the large maintained garden with the little ones and enjoying some alfresco dining.

Just 1 mile from Rowton Castle a popular wedding venue in the area, this is the perfect base to get ready for attending a wedding in the castles beautiful surroundings.

When you're ready to venture out, visit the vast and beautiful Shropshire Hills AONB for a chance to enjoy a great selection of walking trails, cycling, and home to some of the oldest rock formations in existence.

For a bustling Tudor town centre, go to Shrewsbury where it's lined with quaint half-timbered houses and visit the medieval red brick Shrewsbury Castle for some local history before choosing where to dine for an indulgent meal out.

Shoothill Lodge is a wonderful place to enjoy a peaceful break, whether relaxing within the enclosed grounds of the property or exploring the Shropshire countryside and towns.

About the location

FORD, SHROPSHIRE

Shrewsbury 5.5 miles; Welshpool 14 miles; Llangollen 28.8 miles.

Within the charming county of Shropshire and lying just west of the county town of Shrewsbury is the quaint village of Ford. With its northerly borders lined by the River Servern, and being under 20 miles north of the Shropshire Hills AONB, it is surrounded by wonderful natural beauty and some truly stunning landscapes. The village itself is home to an American style smokehouse pub, Smokestop BBQ, and a Nisa shop within the Shell garage, so you can find all your amenities, while a church sits within the older part of the village further up. From the village you can easily access the popular county town of Shrewsbury for many of its wonderful attractions, like brushing up on local history and art in the Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery, take a ride on the Sabrina Boat on the River Severn setting sail from Victoria Quay, or Shrewsbury Castle and Shropsire Regimental Museum to see weapons, medals and uniforms from the 18th century as well as the amazing castle building. Within easy reach of the Shropshire Hills AONB as well, Ford is a delightful base from which to explore this lovely area.
