  • "Beautiful cottage in wonderful surroundings."

    The owner made us welcome and ask us to let her know if any help required. We found however that one of the twin beds in the second room were not fit for use. The mattress had been replaced but the base had not. The furniture in that Room had seen better days. I think the crockery could also be replaced. However we this is a perfect place to relax and visit the surrounding area.

  • "This is a lovely place to stay."

    The cottage is very pretty on the outside and all mod cons on the inside. The owners welcome you with little presents ; tea, coffee, gin & tonic and some pretty toiletries in the bathroom. The surroundings are beautiful, with sweeping lawns out front leading to fabulous views of the surrounding countryside. There's a very well cared for private garden. The whole place is lovely and quiet and peaceful. The owners are very kind, considerate and helpful. It's within easy reach of Shrewsbury, Ludlow and lots of other places of interest. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Stables to anyone.

    Thank you for your very kind feedback Christine, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay in the Stables. We are about to deadhead the roses in the garden, it could take some time! Property Owner

  • "The property has a real atmosphere of comfort and homeliness."

    Even with the instructions, one or two of the appliances e.g. the hob, take a bit of practise but, the kitchen is very well equipped for someone who loves to cook. We appreciated all the little extras. The property has wonderful views, fabulous garden, and the hamlet is well appointed for the towns of Shrewsbury, Ludlow and Church Stretton. Shropshire is a beautiful county with diverse landscape and great market towns. My only small niggle is that the mattress on the first single bed in the twin room was lumpy and probably needs replacement. I was however, able to use the second single bed which was very comfortable. I would highly recommend this property.

    Thank you for your very kind feedback. We’re so sorry you had a problem with the mattress but very pleased you have brought it to our attention. 2 new mattresses are ordered and on their way! Property Owner

  • "Unquestionably, a wonderful place to stay for a holiday."

    Magnificent views from The Stables and we were surprised how spacious it was. A beautiful and private walled garden to enjoy the flowers and sit outside. If you are looking for peace and quiet this is the place for you. Church Stretton is easily reached for shops/restaurants etc. Lots of walks from the doorstep and in the vicinity. Lots to see and do for everyone We were very impressed and would not hesitate to return in the future..

    Thank you for your very kind feedback, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay in The Stables and look forward to welcoming you again. Lu and Mike. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful, "away from it all" cottage."

    Warm, comfortable, well equipped and standing in amazing surroundings, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Stables. Having our own walled garden with furniture (and most days with sunshine too) was a real bonus after walking some of the Shropshire Hills. The owners left some delicious treats and toiletries. Definitely a cottage we will return to. Highly recommended.

    Thank you so much for your feedback, we look forward to welcoming you to the Stables again soon. Lu and Mike. Property Owner

    Perfect location for exploring the area whilst being in a very peaceful setting. Everything was exactly as we had hoped. For absolute perfection, some maps showing the footpaths from the cottage would be amazing!

The property

Dorrington 4.1 miles.

Tucked away in the tiny village of Frodesley, The Stables is a picturesque holiday home offering up a truly tranquil base from which to explore the Shropshire Hills.

With outstanding views of the surrounding countryside from every window, and attractive features such as original beams on the walls and ceiling, this beautifully converted stable is perfectly suited to one or two couples, or a family of 4. Frodesley is located in the centre of Shropshire's “Golden Triangle”; sited between Shrewsbury, the Ironbridge Gorge, and Ludlow.

Designated an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you will be well placed to enjoy long walks or cycle rides in the beautiful and ever-changing countryside.

When you return to the Stables, pop your boots by the door and make the most of the well-equipped kitchen to rustle up a tasty reviving meal, or take advantage of our local farm shop just 2 minutes down the road.

It offers a range of fresh produce, delicious cakes and biscuits, local produce and best of all a variety of ready meals all prepared on site.

Once replete you can relax on the sofas in the comfortable living room and enjoy a film or your favourite binge watch on the flat screen TV.

Books and games in the cupboard offer an alternative or a rainy afternoon solution.

Free WiFi.

From the lounge the Patio doors open onto your private well stocked garden, a lovely sunspot to indulge in alfresco dining or just relaxing in the sunshine.

Back inside, an attractive king-size bedroom promises a good night's sleep and next door the cosy twin room is the perfect place for the children to settle down, in peace and quiet, equally suitable for 2 more adults of course. At the end of the hall, a light modern bathroom can be found with a spacious bath and separate shower, always warm and cosy with underfloor heating and heated towel rail.

From the Stables, the view is of the Lawley and the Caradoc, very popular with walkers all through the year and hang gliders in the summer.

In the valley between these and the Long Mynd nestles the town of Church Stretton, less than a 10-minute drive away, where you will find a good-sized Co-op, chemists, Post Office, bakery and plenty of smaller interesting shops.

Alternatively spend the day in the bustling and historical town of Shrewsbury, birthplace of Charles Darwin.

Famed for its intriguing ‘Shuts and Passages’ and overlooked by Shrewsbury Castle, home to the Shropshire Regimental Museum, the town nestles in the crook of the River Severn.

The Quarry parkland follows the length of the river and features ‘The Dingle’; an outstanding formal garden and water feature with lots of seating for relaxing and taking in the view.

With museums, the Theatre Severn and numerous independent shops and places to eat the town has plenty to offer all ages.

Within a short distance you can also find the towns of Much Wenlock and Ludlow and various sites of historic interest.

A beautiful rural location, perfect for an all-year round break.

Please note: The path from the parking area to the property is around 50 meters.
