    “We booked both The Bolting Rabbit and adjacent Swallows Rest over the May Bank Holiday for the third year in a row for a family gathering.”

    We got 12 quite comfortably around the table in The Bolting Rabbit (it extends) - two of our party were staying in a local B&B. The courtyard outside The Bolting Rabbit is a real suntrap! Great choice of walks in the area - both from the door up to Wenlock Edge and slightly further afield on The Long Mynd, Caer Caradoc etc. Ironbridge, Stokesay Castle, Ludlow not too far away if weather is bad. Excellent meal this year at the Ragleth Inn, Little Stretton, but need to book.

The cottage

This beautiful, semi-detached barn conversion is one of two holiday homes set on the owners’ 120-acre arable farm, on the edge of the attractive village of Rushbury, and is reached via a sweeping gravel drive and pretty front garden with patio.

Entry is directly into the large farmhouse-style kitchen with dining area, leading nicely into the spacious sitting room, which is complete with character beams and a wooden floor.

From the kitchen is a beautiful wooden staircase accessing the three comfortable bedrooms, which are full of rural, rustic charm with sloping ceilings and beams, one of which also benefiting from an en-suite shower room.

The village of Cardington, home to the oldest pub in Shropshire, sits within easy reach, and within five miles is the delightful town of Church Stretton, often fondly referred to as 'Little Switzerland’, observed by the superb surrounding Long Mynd hills.

This is the perfect place for walkers and cyclists to enjoy beautiful South Shropshire, and within easy touring reach are the medieval towns of Much Wenlock, Ludlow and Shrewsbury, and the many attractions in the area including the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge.

A lovely, family-sized barn for a special Shropshire holiday.

Note: This cottage is attached to Ref. 23550, together they sleep 10.

About the location

RUSHBURY

Church Stretton 5 miles; Cardington 6 miles; Much Wenlock 9 miles; Ludlow 15 miles.

The charming village of Rushbury sits amongst the gentle rolling hills of the Apedale Valley, between historic Much Wenlock and nearby, delightful Church Stretton. Also close by is the picturesque village of Cardington, which lies at the foot of Caer Caradoc and the Lawley Hills, home to the oldest pub in Shropshire - The Royal Oak, which has been noted in the Domesday Book. This rural area is ideal for outdoor exploration, with many walking trails criss-crossing the countryside, heading in all directions. A wealth of native birdlife, which includes buzzards, woodpeckers and ravens, thrives in the Shropshire Hills, which provide a fantastic backdrop for the avid rambler. There are many attractions to be discovered, including the Severn Valley Railway, Stokesay Castle, Shrewsbury, Ludlow and the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site, all less than half an hour’s drive away. The striking towns of Church Stretton and Much Wenlock are also both within easy driving distance, each offering a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants. With so much to discover nearby, Rushbury provides a superb year-round base for discovering scenic Shropshire.
