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.

About the location


Whitchurch 6 miles; Shrewsbury 12 miles.

The delightful village of Weston-under-Redcastle nestles under the south west edge of the bold Hawkstone Ridge and is surrounded by scenic Shropshire countryside, 12 miles from the centre of Shrewsbury which is one of England's most picturesque Tudor towns. This historic village is mentioned in the Domesday Book and boasts a lovely 17th century church, excellent golf courses and the renowned Hawkstone Park which is famous for its wonderful Follies and magical walks. Medieval Shrewsbury offers a superb selection of historic buildings, excellent shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, pubs and scenic riverside walks and boat trips. Visit NT's stately Attingham Park, Hodnet Gardens, Wroxeter Roman City, the museums at Ironbridge World Heritage Site, the 13th century castle and Michelin starred restaurants of Ludlow, or Stokesay Castle. There are many beautiful local canal walks and with the Welsh border being only a 20 minute drive away and the beautiful market town of Llangollen only a 45 minute drive away there is plenty of exploring to be done. A wonderful year-round location for enjoying this beautiful region of England.
