This charming cottage is located within a minute of the Shropshire Way and close to the Hereford Trail, ideal for walkers and bird watchers, as well as benefitting from doorstep access to the woodland and countryside walks on the Norton Estate.

Located amongst rolling countryside, this single-storey cottage has been delightfully styled to offer open plan living with a modern, fitted kitchen set in a room with an L-shaped sitting area with dining area.

Additional warmth is provided by a freestanding woodburner, where you can sit in comfort whilst relaxing with friends and family.

The ground floor bedrooms have been thoughtfully designed to provide welcoming accommodation, sharing a modern, stylish bathroom offering a bath and shower.

Outside, the cottage enjoys a private patio area with seating and shares a nearby barbecue area with three other large holiday cottages, along with an enclosed lawned garden.

There is a fantastic indoor heated swimming pool which can be booked by the hour by guests for private use, along with a cinder tennis court, located in the central courtyard.

Only six miles from this lovely cottage is the town of Ludlow for you to explore, with its famous castle and superb restaurants, cafés, pubs and antique shops.

This area of Shropshire gives access to so many exciting days out, including Stokesay Castle, Ironbridge Gorge and museums and the Royal Air Force Museum at Cosford, with over 70 planes on display.

About the location

CRAVEN ARMS

Church Stretton 7 miles; Ludlow 8 miles.

The small market town of Craven Arms, known as The Gateway to the Marches is conveniently located between the beautiful medieval town of Ludlow and delightful Church Stretton. Craven Arms is an ideal base, which nestles close to the scenic Wenlock Edge and Corvedale Valley with fine walks from the town to lovely Stokesay Castle, one of England's finest fortified manors, or the very popular Shropshire Hill Discovery Centre. The town also has some charming and historic houses, including a round house, thought to be a recognisable rest house for pilgrims travelling between Wigmore and Shrewsbury Abbeys and the fascinating 'Museum of Lost Content'. Just two miles away in the village of Wistanstow is the Plough Inn, a good local wood brewery. Church Stretton is close by and nestles between the Long Mynd and Caradoc Hills, renowned for their scenic walks and excellent golf course. The historic towns of Bishop's Castle, Ludlow and Shrewsbury are a short drive away, and offer magnificent castles, riverside walks, wonderful shops, pubs, restaurants, exciting theatres and a variety of festivals. This is a perfect base for touring all of beautiful Shropshire at any time of the year.
