  • "The cottage was well kept and clean, we both had a lovely short break and would highly recommend this property."

    The only slight problem was that we found the heating a little difficult to use and the bathroom was cold until we worked out how to use the storage radiator.

  • "Fantastic cottage, the perfect size for 2 people in a lovely picturesque village with 2 lovely pubs."

    Perfect place to explore the surrounding area and close to the railway station in Church Stretton. The cottage had everything we needed and was very comfortable with a lovely outdoor area to sit with a glass of wine in the sun. Can recommend staying here for a week and the hosts were lovely and on hand to help or answer any questions and left us with a welcome gift and some home made biscuits which were delicious.

    Thank you for your generous comments on Manor Cottage. We’re so pleased. You enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

    The kitchen was well equipped. A couple of games and DVDs would have been welcomed but this did not spoil anything about our stay. Staying in Little Stretton was so convenient for walking the Long Mynd and having dinner at The Ragleth Inn.

This lovely abode welcomes couples to explore the Shropshire Hills AONB with open-plan living, bike storage, and characterful, original features throughout for a truly unique getaway.

Manor Cottage has a fairy-tale exterior with a front, gravelled garden where you can dine alfresco on summer evenings after the day's adventures.

Further afield, you'll find the market town of Ludlow where you can explore the Norman Ludlow Castle, or perhaps head north to Shrewsbury for Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery, Shrewsbury Prison, and cruises on the Sabrina Boat.
