    “This property is Friday to Friday, ...”

    This property is Friday to Friday, for us travelling across country on a Friday considerably lengthens the journey time so we would be unlikely to book the property again solely for this reason.

The property

This delightful semi-detached, stone-built, character cottage is in the heart of the idyllic south Shropshire village of Cardington.

This lovely old cottage exudes charm and style with plenty of exposed beams and stonework and has plenty of space for friends and family to enjoy socialising together in stylish surroundings.

The whole immaculately-presented cottage is light and airy, the perfect luxurious surroundings for that relaxing Shropshire holiday.

Once through the front door, this attractive cottage is set over three floors and you will be delighted by the spacious ground floor open plan living area with its well-equipped kitchen area leading round to the lovely dining and sitting areas with woodburner.

French doors lead out to the private courtyard garden.

From the ground floor, an attractive wood and glass staircase winds down to the lower level where you will find a further attractive sitting room, with double sofa bed, comfy chairs and table, great for playing games at, and an additional shower room.

Upstairs there are three charming double bedrooms, one with its own en-suite with walk- in shower and a separate bathroom.

The contemporary style decoration and furnishings throughout this lovely cottage are the perfect complement to the wealth of natural timbers and warm stonework.

Outside there is a rear courtyard with large dining area and BBQ which leads round to the front terrace and there are steps leading up to the front of the cottage where you can sit and enjoy the early morning sun.

The terrace overlooks the lawned garden and has views across to the lovely old church with its grade 1 listed nave dating back to Norman times.

The picturesque village of Cardington with its historic church at the centre has a wealth of lovely buildings, some dating to before 1600, and there are several timber-framed barns as well as cosy stone cottages.

The nearby local pub is one of the oldest in Shropshire dating back to 1651, and is popular with villagers and visitors alike.

Set in some of the most delightful and scenic Shropshire countryside, just 5 miles from Church Stretton, the charming village of Cardington is perfectly placed for exploring south Shropshire with its Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, historic towns and pretty villages.

Renowned for walking and cycling, the area has much to offer with Carding Mill Valley and Long Mynd, Stokesay Castle, National Trust homes and gardens.

The towns of Shrewsbury, Much Wenlock, Ironbridge and Ludlow are all within easy travelling distance.

Why not walk to the top of nearby Caer Caradoc and see the Iron Age Hill Fort or drive across the top of Long Mynd on the Burway, stopping off at the highest flying school in the country and watch the paragliders ascending the mountainside?

A visit to Bridgnorth is a must, with its lovely riverside location and Severn Valley Railway and many pubs serving locally-brewed beers.

Whatever you decide to do, this delightful cottage is the perfect base for everyone to enjoy this lovely part of Shropshire with plenty of space to socialise together in stylish surroundings all year round.

About the location


Church Stretton 7 miles; Much Wenlock 7 miles.

The pretty village of Cardington lies amongst the rolling hills of the South Shropshire countryside. Cardington boasts the oldest pub in Shropshire – The Royal Oak, mentioned in the Domesday Book! Its rural situation is ideal for sightseeing, with miles of country walks in all directions, not to mention the beautiful Shropshire hills - a draw for walkers, riders and nature lovers alike! A wealth of birdlife (including buzzards, woodpeckers and ravens) has its home here. Acton Scott Historic Working Farm, Severn Valley Steam Railway, Stokesay Castle, Shrewsbury, Ludlow and the Ironbridge Gorge, with its 10 museums, are each less than 15 miles away. The attractive market towns of Church Stretton (known as "Little Switzerland" by the Victorians) and Much Wenlock are both close by and offer a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants. A superb location!
