  • “My family and I had a lovely week at The Wilderness and want to leave a positive review as this place deserves it.”


    It was incredibly clean and tidy, beds are really.comfy, kitchen is really well equipped with everything you need and more and the surroundings are stunning. The cottage is right at the top of the road and if you come to a log cabin you have gone too far..its the house before that and the name of the cottage is actually in the wall. Yes the gravel path is long but just drive carefully and slowly and you should be fine. Only slight downside was that the hot tub got nasty grime marks around the outside after Only 2 uses and we all showered before we got in, so not sure what happened there but we didn't want to use it after that and was a bit gutted. The jacuzzi bath and shower are lovely and also the log burner was a lovely treat. All in all a wonderful time was had by all and we were sad to leave.

This picturesque, detached, old miners’ cottage stands at the foot of the Stiperstones Hill range, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, amidst the Shropshire Hills.

The cottage provides cosy, character accommodation, ideal for a family holiday or a romantic break for two, for those wishing to explore this peaceful and tranquil area.

This attractive cottage, set mostly over the ground floor, offers a spacious first floor family room with a king-size double bed and a single day bed.

There is a room featuring twin beds and a family bathroom with a whirlpool bath, where you can enjoy a relaxing soak after a day exploring Shropshire.

Prepare delicious family meals in the well-equipped kitchen and sit down to eat together around the dining area, in the sitting room.

Retire in front of the woodburning stove, in the charming sitting room and unwind with a film or lose yourself in a good book.

Outside is a pretty, lawned front garden with delightful views across the surrounding countryside to Stiperstones Hill.

Both this space and the rear courtyard offer fantastic places to sit and soak up the summer sunshine after a day’s walking, mountain biking or exploring this beautiful part of Shropshire.

Whatever the time of day or year, the soothing hot tub will add that extra bit of luxury to your stay.

From here, wonderful scenic walks lead you to the summit of the Stiperstones Hill, just one mile away, while excellent mountain bike trails stretch in all directions.

The Stiperstones village pub and the local shop are an easy walk away, offering delicious food and a friendly welcome.

About the location


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.
