    “Oakland Cottage is a delightful comfortable base in a lovely part of Shropshire.”

    There was a warm welcome and everything we needed. We had a very pleasant week.

The property

Craven Arms 4.8 miles.

Oakland Cottage is a beautifully-converted garage-turned-holiday-cottage, resting on the edge of the village of Diddlebury.

Hidden within the magnificent scenery of the Shropshire Hills, this attractive annexe provides the ideal base for families or groups of four, or two couples.

Open the door and step inside the welcoming ambiance of the pretty country kitchen where you will discover an abundance of handy appliances and useful utensils, that lie within the attractive white counters and stunning oak worktops.

Flick on the kettle and rustle up a light snack before grabbing a seat at the dinning table and catching up with friends as you plan out your adventures for the days to come.

Wander through to the homely sitting room and allow yourself to fall into the plush leather sofas as you warm yourself from the heat of the electric woodburning stove and search for a entertaining movie that all can enjoy.

Stay ahead of the game as you pop on a load of washing in the well-thought utility space and grab some ingredients from the spacious fridge/freezer, before cooking up a storm on the electric hob and serving up your delicious creation.

Retreat to the ground-floor bathroom where you can soak up the suds in a warm bath, or a refreshing shower should you fancy it.

You will also find a contemporary shower room on the first-floor with lovely chic interiors creating a tranquil environment where you can take your time to get ready in the morning.

There are two bedrooms available within the property, both of which are home to two zip/link beds that can be arranged into either a king-size bed or two singles for flexible sleeping arrangements.

Both bedrooms have been decorated with calming neutral tones, ample storage space and pretty accessories that really finish off the rooms.

Within the second of the bedrooms, discover patio doors that lead out onto a wonderful outdoor balcony with delightful outdoor furniture, great for enjoying a quiet night cap as you watch the sun set in the distance.

Spend the morning exploring the Shropshire Hills on a scenic walking route through the countryside or explore the grounds of Ludlow Castle before heading to the village of Acton Scott and discovering the charming Victorian Farm with live demonstrations of blacksmithing and wheelwrighting to truly get a feel of what it was like to work on a 19th-century farm.

For a marvellous holiday with friends and family, book a stay in Oakland Cottage.

About the location


Church Stretton 7 miles; Ludlow 8 miles.

The small market town of Craven Arms, known as The Gateway to the Marches is conveniently located between the beautiful medieval town of Ludlow and delightful Church Stretton. Craven Arms is an ideal base, which nestles close to the scenic Wenlock Edge and Corvedale Valley with fine walks from the town to lovely Stokesay Castle, one of England's finest fortified manors, or the very popular Shropshire Hill Discovery Centre. The town also has some charming and historic houses, including a round house, thought to be a recognisable rest house for pilgrims travelling between Wigmore and Shrewsbury Abbeys and the fascinating 'Museum of Lost Content'. Just two miles away in the village of Wistanstow is the Plough Inn, a good local wood brewery. Church Stretton is close by and nestles between the Long Mynd and Caradoc Hills, renowned for their scenic walks and excellent golf course. The historic towns of Bishop's Castle, Ludlow and Shrewsbury are a short drive away, and offer magnificent castles, riverside walks, wonderful shops, pubs, restaurants, exciting theatres and a variety of festivals. This is a perfect base for touring all of beautiful Shropshire at any time of the year.
