Maple Tree Cottage is situated next to the owners’ Georgian home, on the outskirts of the hamlet of Wollerton, in Shropshire.
Set in rural countryside behind an electronic gated and shared driveway, the accommodation is located above the owners’ garages and adjoins their swimming pool, so whilst detached, there may be some occasional activity around.
Lovingly furnished, this first floor apartment is accessed through the owners’ gardens into a spacious private entrance hall with a staircase leading up to a welcoming open plan living area with a well-equipped modern kitchen and an intimate dining area overlooking the superbly maintained gardens.
Doors lead through to the double bedroom, which is stylish and well-appointed and stores two folding z-beds for flexibility.
Outside this luxurious apartment are the beautiful gardens, which are part of the National Gardens Scheme, open for charity once a year and you are welcome to enjoy them and the 4 acres of meadows with the owner’s consent.
An area of the gardens has been set aside for your private enjoyment, where you can sit in peace and tranquillity, enjoying the sun with a good book and glass of wine.
Footpaths criss-cross the surrounding fields opening up delightful country walks, with the Shropshire Union Canal in Market Drayton providing a fantastic towpath walk.
A superb Shropshire romantic getaway at any time of the year.
Mostly first floor. One double bedroom. Shower room with shower, basin and WC. Open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area. Ground floor utility.
