The property

A delightful, detached character cottage in the heart of the hamlet of Gretton, just half a mile from the beautiful village of Cardington situated next to a working farm.

This beautiful cottage is ideal for a romantic break in the Shropshire countryside, and the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploring.

The property exudes character with exposed beams throughout, stonework and traditional stone tiles complimenting the rural surroundings.

From the front door there is a utility room which leads to a cosy sitting room where you can relax after a long walk whilst warming up by the log burning stove.

The stylish and well equipped kitchen and dining area features traditional stone tiles.

On warmer evenings you can sit outside on the patio and enjoy the peace and quiet whilst sipping a glass of wine.

Upstairs there is a charming king-size double room and a separate shower room.

Outside you have an enclosed gravel garden with a patio area and lovely views of the farm and surrounding fields.

The charming village of Cardington is packed full of picturesque buildings dating back to the 1600s, and home to Shropshire’s oldest pub which dates back to 1651.

Fabulous walks and cycling trails are just a few miles away in the town of Church Stretton which is overlooked by the stunning Long Mynd Hills, also known as Shropshire’s ‘Little Switzerland’.

Visit Bridgnorth and sample locally-brewed beers by the riverside.

Why not explore further afield and visit the medieval towns of Ludlow and Shrewsbury, or travel to the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge.

This cottage is the perfect base to explore Shropshire’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

About the location

CARDINGTON

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!
