The property

Dorrington 1.3 miles.

The Caradoc is settled into the countryside of Longnor, near Dorrington, named after one of the Shropshire hills, and offers beautiful accommodation with plentiful amenities and off-road parking.

This property is a delight for two couples, a family, and those who love horse riding, with an on-site livery and many bridleways through the breath-taking scenery of Shropshire.

Be welcomed into a dreamy open-plan living space, where a tasteful electric fire warms your feet as you recline in the sitting area and enjoy a tipple as you reflect on the days adventures.

Perfect for cooking up a storm, the spacious, light, and airy kitchen encourages guests to make the most of the amenities on offer, and enjoy a hearty meal at the dining table, or outside in the shared patio space, and there is also a patio beside the stream where guests can while away the warm afternoons whilst making the most of the scenery.

For your refreshment, two stylish shower rooms await, one on the ground floor and one on the first floor, allowing guests to soak the countryside chill from their hair.

The high-standard presentation continues upstairs, with two stunning bedrooms on offer, so choose between a super-king-size and a twin, both zip/link and able to have their configuration changed to suit your parties needs.

Spend an idyllic getaway to Shropshire with a stay at The Caradoc.
