    “Although we did not meet the owners, we had the feeling they cared about us - little nice things like a welcome basket or a bottle of champaign for new year's eve.”

    The property is indeed difficult to find - a nice neighbour helped us. Could you provide some exact location, e.g. via google maps, together with the key collection details? Although the directions are correct and clear our clever navigation system managed to outsmart us.

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.
