    “Wow! What a fantastic cottage: beautifully converted to a high standard, very well equipped, and very clean.”

    (Not so much as a stray dog hair to suggest that pets are welcome.) I'm 6ft 7in tall and my son is 6ft 3in and - along with his sensibly-sized mother - we found Ploughman's Cottage spacious with plenty of comfortable seats in the sitting room, and generous-sized beds. There's a decent-sized bathroom with shower and bath AND plenty of hot water for three hot showers in a row (maybe more). Fantastic views from just about every room and, despite such a close road, wonderfully quiet with the ...

    (Not so much as a stray dog hair to suggest that pets are welcome.) I'm 6ft 7in tall and my son is 6ft 3in and - along with his sensibly-sized mother - we found Ploughman's Cottage spacious with plenty of comfortable seats in the sitting room, and generous-sized beds. There's a decent-sized bathroom with shower and bath AND plenty of hot water for three hot showers in a row (maybe more). Fantastic views from just about every room and, despite such a close road, wonderfully quiet with the double-glazing. The photos don't do the garden justice and there is wonderful birdsong, with bird-seed provided. The location is ideal for day trips to Shrewsbury, the Ironbridge Museums, Hawkstone Park Folllies, and some wonderful walks. Previous visitors have enthused about the welcome basket and I can see why - containing everything from red wine to homemade jam - but it's also a good indication of the warmth of the welcome and the attention to detail. We were very lucky with the weather - sunshine, sunshine, sunshine - but, had we decided to spend more time in the cottage, it would have been a wonderful place to read and relax. Would we recommend Ploughman's Cottage to anyone else? You'd better believe it! Five stars.

The property

Shrewsbury 14 miles.

A lovely semi-detached cottage sits in a rural position between the delightful towns of Shrewsbury, being 14 miles away, and Whitchurch, being 8 miles away.

Decorated to a high standard with beautiful features, this retreat makes a lovely base to relax, ideal for couples or travellers wanting to get away from it all.

Inside you will be welcomed by a lovely kitchen, freshly designed with a dining table for four people, perfect for a cosy meal in the evening.

The sitting room boasts a snug feel, centred by a woodburning stove, ideal on those cooler nights, and a homely sofa for some well-deserved relaxation.

French doors open out to the garden ideal for some fresh air on a sunny afternoon.

After a fabulous night in with your loved ones, you will look forward to a good night’s sleep in either of the two magnificent bedrooms, each as promising as the next.

Complete with soft furnishings and bedside lamps, a soothing ambience flows throughout leaving you spoilt for choice during your stay.

To tie all of this together, views of the fields lie in the distance, and a family bathroom completes the interior in a modern fashion, featuring a bath with a rainfall shower over.

Guests have complimentary access to the private estate of Soulton Hall within a few minutes of the property.

Also on the doorstep is Hawkstone Follies which is a great place to enjoy some great walking within the historic woodland fantasy with cliffs, crags, caves, deep woods and a series of extraordinary monuments.

The town of Shrewsbury and city of Chester offer a superb selection of independent and high street shops, not forgetting plenty of cafes, bars, restaurants and pubs, as well as the visitor attractions, such as the Chester Roman Amphitheatre and the world-famous city walls as well as the Chester Racecourse.

Visit NT's stately Attingham Park, an elegant 18th century mansion, Wroxeter Roman City, the museums at Ironbridge, the castle and Michelin starred restaurants of Ludlow for a change of scenery.

However, you spend your holiday, this retreat is a superb place to stay.
