  • "We loved our weekend away at Thimble Cottage with our French bulldog."

    It was so peaceful and quiet. We slept really well. Loved the hot tub, seeing the horses in the neighbouring paddock, having private parking, being left chocolates and a bath bomb. The local butchers is definitely worth a visit for the sausages. We are definitely going to book again. If you’re after a lovely relaxing break with nobody around, this is the place for you.

  • "We had a great stay at Thimble cottage, we had everything we needed."

    The hot tub was great for the winter evenings. And the kids loved waking up and seeing the horses in the paddock. We have booked again for later in the year.

  • "A lovely well needed break made better by this gem of a find!"

    Set comfortably rural to Telford, Thimble Cottage is a new listing to Sykes and is well equipped with everything you need, including a brew kit welcome pack, doggy treats, cleaning kit & equipment and very comfortable bedding. The hot tub is an added bonus and I would recommend taking your own towels for this use. The cottage was immaculately clean on arrival and the hot tub is serviced daily. This well presented cottage is very comfortable, dog friendly with a secure and spacious garden area (as well as a paddock space when available to use). The cottage is tucked away down some small country roads, so the only advice is to be cautious of this but you can guarantee a quiet peaceful space with a stunning view where you can even witness shooting stars at night! We highly recommend Thimble Cottage and have already shared the cottage details with family and friends. Thank you again to the proprietors for a wonderful peaceful break.

Resting in the grounds of the owner’s home, with a private entrance and ample parking, Thimble Cottage rests in Meeson near Newport, and is a beautifully-presented property ideal for a couple or family looking to explore Shropshire.

Park off-road and unpack with ease into this delightful cottage, where a light and airy open-plan living space houses contemporary furniture with an opulent feel.

There is a well-fitted kitchen space with loads of amenities to cater to your culinary needs, with grey furniture and matching tiles, as well as a marble dining table where guests can dine together.

Open the French doors in the sitting area, which overlooks paddock stretching to the Wrekin and Shropshire Hills, or remain indoors to relish in a movie marathon upon the Smart TV; there is also a double sofa bed to welcome two further guests to your party.

Accessible via patio doors, the garden offers a tranquil space to recline with a glass of your favourite beverage with views across the paddock, or alternatively spend an evening indulging in a soak in the hot tub.

Freshen up in the opulent bathroom, making the most of the roll-top bath or walk-in shower.

Snuggle up in the tastefully presented king-size bedroom, with windows that open up, into balconies, ideal for morning coffee when the sun is shining, and a twin which can be set up as a king-size on request and has access to a quirky spiral staircase leading to the outside of the property.

Thimble Cottage rests within a quaint rural location in Meeson, with views over the countryside.

From here, you can head over to Tibberton where there is a local shop and pub, or Waters Upton, where there is a second convenience store and the Bharat Indian restaurant.

For more amenities and many eateries, pubs, independent shops, and a golf course, visit Newport, where there is also the Aqualate Mere National Nature Reserve.

Ironbridge is also within reach of the property, a town with several historical sites including Bedlam Furnaces and The Iron Bridge, as well as riverside walks, or there is the option of visiting Telford, where you will find more shops, pubs, cafes, Sky Reach High Ropes adventure course, the Telford Steam Railway, the Telford Town Park, brimming with outdoor activities, and Telford International Centre.
