    The outside space is great and secure for our 4 year old to run around in. Sally and Alan were great hosts and the home cooked cake was a lovely gesture. We will be returning for another stay and recommending it to others. New pegs and a hairdryer would be great!

Nestled within the beautiful grounds to the owner's farmhouse, just north of the Shropshire Hills AONB and surrounded by open, green fields, is Vitula Cottage.

This lovely barn conversion, approached by a country lane, offers a haven for walkers and cyclists, with a network of trails to choose from in the area.

Return to relax in this peaceful getaway and take in your surroundings from the living room, you can sink into the large sofa and drink in the views out over the greenery as you sip a thirst-quenching beverage.

Slide open the bi-folding doors on a warm summer's day and let a welcoming breeze through the open-plan space.

You can rustle up a tasty dinner for everyone to enjoy around the dining table, with the help of the modern appliances in the kitchen.

The high ceiling and considered lighting fixtures will uplift your mood each day, allowing you to truly make the most of your stay.

The ground floor double bedroom has its very own en-suite shower room for convenience and pleasant views to wake up to each morning through the patio doors.

Upstairs is the master bedroom showcasing a king-size double bed and an en-suite shower room, with a lovely oak finish throughout.

Finally, the outdoor space boasts a conservatory with a seating area and a hot tub, so you can enjoy a luxurious soak after a long walk with more of those soothing vistas, whatever time of the year.

There are a few pubs in the nearby area, with the nearest shop being in Wem, as well as cosy cafés, more pubs and lovely restaurants to choose from.

Pay a visit to the delightful town of Ellesmere, which is steeped in history and offers shops, pubs and eateries in abundance, as well as the Shropshire Union Canal babbling its way to Llangollen.

You have many historic landmarks, museums, National Trust properties and gardens to tempt any visitor.

Vitula Cottage is a first-rate property boasting an enviable position in Shropshire.
