  • “Superb rural/ village location and extensive views in all directions.”

    Attractive restoration but lacks a little comfort on ground floor. Would love to go again soon.

The property

Church Stretton 4.9 miles.

Hidden within the magnificent landscapes of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you will find the stunning Wilstone Cottage.

Wilstone Cottage sits at the foot of the iconic Caer Caradoc Hill; the hill offers panoramic views of the Wrekin, Wenlock Edge and The Long Mynd!

The summit has an Ancient British Iron Age hill fort, which the hill is named after - Caer Caradoc is Welsh, meaning Caradog's Fort.

This traditional chocolate box cottage offers the perfect setting for an unforgettable holiday to the countryside.

Show off your culinary skills as you take to the pretty country kitchen and prepare a delicious feast with the help of the contemporary electric appliances and useful utensils.

Take your seat at the spacious dining table, admiring the eye-catching stone fireplace with woodburning stove and charming exposed beams that line the walls and ceilings.

Snuggle in front of the woodburning stove that takes centre stage in the striking inglenook fireplace within the sitting room, as you sink into the plush sofas and enjoy a quiet night indoors.

Open up the patio doors and step out into the well-kept garden boasting views of the luscious rolling countryside and a pretty outdoor dining area, perfect for indulging in a chilled glass of champagne and a mouth-watering meal on a warm summer evening.

The ground floor is also home to a bright and airy shower room benefitting from a heated towel rail, as well as a convenient utility room where you can keep on top of the washing thanks to the handy washing machine.

Climb the fabulous wooden staircase up to the first floor which splits into three directions, each leading to a homely and well-decorated bedroom including two super-king-size bedrooms that can be transformed into twins upon request, and a quaint twin bedroom with hanging space for your belongings.

Escape the excitement with a long soak in the bathtub, located within the tranquil family bathroom, or prepare for the day ahead with a quick rinse under the overhead shower.

Make the most of this idyllic setting with a breath-taking hike through the Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd, before descending down to the village of Church Stretton and delighting in a hearty breakfast in one of the many local cafes.

Learn of times gone by with a trip to the Victorian farm of Acton Scott Historic Working Farm.

Head to the village of Horsehay for a relaxing ride on the Telford Steam Railway or a tour of the living museum of Blists Hill, a fun-filled Victorian town.

Venture north to the historical market town of Shrewsbury where you can enjoy a trip to the National Trust owned Attingham Park Estate with the iconic Town Walls Tower and take an eery tour of the old local prison or 11th-century castle.

On your return to the cottage, stop off at the famous The Royal Oak Pub for a refreshing pint of bitter and some tasty pub grub.

Spend quality time with your loved ones on an escape to Wilstone Cottage.
