    “This was such a lovely escape in the middle of the pandemic (and just before lockdown 2).”

    We visited during October half term, and appreciated the flexibility of being able to book for only part of the week. The house was huge and so comfortable and pretty, but also safe for our two-year-old twins, who didn't break anything! There was plenty of room for both their cots in one of the bedrooms, and our five-year-old loved being in the single bedroom with beams at the top of the house. We enjoyed the log fire, going for walks straight out of the door, and watching the cows come in ...

    We visited during October half term, and appreciated the flexibility of being able to book for only part of the week. The house was huge and so comfortable and pretty, but also safe for our two-year-old twins, who didn't break anything! There was plenty of room for both their cots in one of the bedrooms, and our five-year-old loved being in the single bedroom with beams at the top of the house. We enjoyed the log fire, going for walks straight out of the door, and watching the cows come in on one of the days of our visit. The kitchen and heating were easy to use, and we appreciated the little treats that had been left for us! The house feels gloriously remote and quiet, but it was also easy to get to the places we wanted to visit: the Stiperstones (very nearby), the Long Mynd, Hawkstone Park and Wroxeter Roman City on our way home. The house and the holiday suited us perfectly and were just what we needed.

Habberley 1 mile.

This traditional farmhouse with oak beamed ceilings is located on the owners’ working cattle farm on the outskirts of the pretty Shropshire village of Habberley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Beautifully furnished and decorated throughout and with spectacular panoramic views, this delightful cottage is ideal for friends and families looking to enjoy a peaceful retreat in the heart of some of the most glorious Shropshire countryside.

This spacious and luxurious cottage is in a wonderful location and is set over three floors.

Entering into the attractive hallway with oak beams and exposed stonework, you immediately sense the quality and style of this lovely farmhouse.

The well-equipped, light and airy kitchen has views across the open countryside and the dining room is very attractively furnished.

Enjoy the comfort of sinking into one of the luxurious sofas in front of the woodburner in the stunning sitting room, or step out through the French doors onto the elevated decked area to enjoy the wonderful panoramic views.

There are four spacious bedrooms, all with TV, and one with an en-suite shower room together with a lovely bathroom and separate ground floor cloakroom.

Outside, you are surrounded by open countryside on this wonderful farm location, with a decked area to sit and enjoy the passing of the day.

Admire the majestic beauty of Earl’s Hill with its Iron Age fort, or look beyond to the Breidden Hills and the Welsh mountains.

Situated as it is in the heart of this beautiful countryside, this charming cottage is ideally placed to enjoy a host of fabulous walks, cycling and horse riding.

National Cycle Route 44 runs close by, whilst to the rear of the property is a public bridleway which takes you through rural lanes and unspoilt countryside.

Just a few miles away is the beautiful village of Pontesbury with its lovely shops, pubs and restaurants.

The Stiperstones, Carding Mill Valley and Long Mynd, with their breathtaking views, are short drives away.

The medieval county town of Shrewsbury is 12 miles away with its cobbled streets, lovely riverside walks, independent shops and pubs and restaurants to explore.

Church Stretton, Much Wenlock, Bridgnorth and Ironbridge are all within easy reach and offer local markets, historical buildings, and the opportunity to enjoy local food and drink.

Why not cross over the border into Wales and take a ride on the Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway, or walk the shores around the stunning Lake Vyrnwy?

This lovely cottage is a superb base from which to explore the interesting towns, villages and stunning countryside of Shropshire whatever the season.

About the location

HABBERLEY

Pontesbury 3 miles; Shrewsbury 12 miles.

The small village of Habberley lies near the Stiperstones and has several attractive half-timbered houses including Habberley Hall which dates back to the 16th century and was once home to the Mytton family, a famous member being Jack Mytton after whom the 100 mile long Jack Mytton Way was named. The local pub also bears the family name, the Mytton Arms. The beautiful village of Pontesbury is only a few miles away and has lovely shops, pubs and restaurants. Shrewsbury is full of higgledy-piggledy streets, and a river that scoops up the town in a loop. A mix of the very old and the very new, the quirky and the one-off. Set amidst glorious countryside near to the Welsh Borders, it is one of England's finest medieval market towns. The town centre is packed with timber-framed Black and White buildings, steep narrow streets and alleyways. There are over 600 listed buildings including the Castle, now a regimental museum, and the world-famous Shrewsbury Abbey, home of the fictional Brother Cadfael.
