The property

Hanwood 2.4 miles.

Shire Cottage is a beautiful, four-bedroom home nestled rurally in Cruckton near Hanwood in Shropshire.

Surrounded by stunning countryside views, this pet-friendly property offers the perfect escape for families, friends, and couples alike, inviting up to eight guests to enjoy the nearby Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Shire Cottage spans over three floors, overflowing with character and charm, and is home to a fully-equipped kitchen/diner, perfect for creating culinary masterpieces, and two utility rooms housing all the necessary appliances.

Move into the sitting room where you can relax in front of the woodburning stove on cooler days, or on balmy afternoons, head to the front garden whilst the children of your group play in the play area.

As the night draws in, you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the hot tub, set in the enclosed rear garden, with rolling countryside views enveloping the property.

Head up the stairs to discover four inviting bedrooms, two of which are king-size, and one is a second-floor twin, along with a king-size bedroom boasting a Juliet balcony, walk-in wardrobe, and en-suite shower room, for added luxury.

A roll-top bath and walk-in shower can be found in the bathroom for an indulgent soak, servicing the remaining bedrooms.

Start your itinerary by venturing a little further to find the nearby village of Hanwood, and make sure to visit the 18th-century Hanwood Church, stock up on the essentials, and dine out at The Cock Inn, serving traditional pub fare.

For a quaint and colourful day out, Shrewsbury is an excellent choice, where you'll find a beautiful collection of Edwardian and Victorian buildings, as well as a selection of independent shops, eateries, and pubs for you to enjoy; whilst in the area, fill your time with touring Shrewsbury Abbey, Shrewsbury Prison, and Shrewsbury Castle, set near River Severn.

Don't forget to explore Church Stretton, a charming market town which offers the perfect opportunity to get lost in its cobblestone streets and admire its unique beauty.

With all the amenities and comforts you could need, Shire Cottage is the perfect place for a relaxing stay in the countryside.

About the location


Bayston Hill 3.8 miles; Shrewsbury 3.9 miles; Church Stretton 12.4 miles; Telford 17.2 miles

The beautiful village of Hanwood is situated in the county of Shropshire, just a few miles away from Shrewsbury town centre. Running through the village is the Cambrian railway line, however, the town's train station was closed down in 1964 due to the Beeching Axe, a plan to make British railway systems more efficient. The village is home to a Post Office/shop, country pub, a primary school, and a parish church. The Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty rests below Hanwood, with 802 square kilometers of stunning scenery extending to the border of wales, and opportunity to explore rare wildlife, difficult walking trails, and historic attractions. The towns of Shrewsbury and Telford are in reach, with Shrewsbury lying next to the River Severn, and Telford boasting a large selection of high street shops, bustling pubs, lively restaurants, and tasty takeaways. Hanwood is a tranquil destination to enjoy the beauty of Shropshire.
