    “The directions to the cottage were unfathomable we had to ring the owner .”

    The drive to the cottage is very steep and bumpy with a.loose surface, you need a 4 x4 to climb back to the road. We mentioned this to Claire the owner she said she was aware and it will be done in October.

The local pubs were excellent with various cuisine.

Boasting unrivalled views of the Stiperstones and the Shropshire Hills, this charismatic cottage is the perfect base for a family or group of four who seek a relaxing escape to the countryside.

Be welcomed into the warmth of the sitting room and allow yourself to sink into the stylish grey sofas, flicking on the impressive TV as you recuperate from an action-packed adventure exploring the local area.

Venture across the way to the county-kitchen and discover a sea of appliances and utensils, perfect for cooking up a storm ahead of a quiet evening indoors.

Tuck into a mouth-watering meal at the attractive oak dining table, popping open a chilled bottle of bubbly as you exchange your funniest moments from the holiday so far.

Admire the striking exposed brick and beams in the peaceful twin bedroom as you settle down for the evening, or make yourself at home in the lovely double bedroom with an abundance of storage to house all of your belongings.

About the location


Church Stretton 6 miles.

The rural village of Ratlinghope is scattered around a valley in the hills of the Long Mynd and Stiperstones, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It lies alongside the Darnford Brook, which originates at Wildmoor Pool in the hills above. This wonderfully scenic area provides beautiful walks and bike trails through the surrounding rolling hills, and the renowned Castle Ring, the earthwork of Ratlinghope Hill, is the fort described by Mary Webb in her novel "Golden Arrow". Only 6 miles away is the pretty town of Church Stretton often described as "Little Switzerland". The town is home to a variety of tea rooms, pubs and specialist shops. Other local attractions include walks on the Long Mynd, the Acton Scott Historic Working Farm and Stokesay Castle. The medieval towns of Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Ironbridge, Much Wenlock and Bishops Castle are only a short drive away. This whole area is renowned for its beautiful hill scenery and wonderful walking.
