  • "Upon arrival fo the property we were greated by the owner and her lovely doggos."

    The owner is very friendly, helpful, kind and happy to point you to the beautiful local spots! We had everything we needed there, but obviously bring your own food! Although, there's plenty of eggs! The owner was thoughtful enough to put shower gels, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, cleaning supplies, towels, a hairdryer and even extra fluffy blankets for those cosy nights in, out for us. The local scenery is so beyond beautiful too. My fiance and I were the first people to stay at the property that aren't friends / family of the owners, and we certainly will not be the last. Beyond happy with our experience, this is the best holiday we've had in a while. Will definitely return. Thank you for having us guys, and thank you for giving us such an amazing time.

    Thanks for such a lovely review. I am so glad you enjoyed your holiday up here - despite the weather - Thanks also for leaving the apartment so tidy, and I look forward to seeing you and/or friends and family again! Property Owner

About the location


Church Stretton 8 miles; Shrewsbury 12 miles; Bishop’s Castle 12 miles; Ludlow 27 miles.

The village of Stiperstones nestles in an unspoilt valley on the slopes of the beautiful Stiperstones Hill range and is only eight miles from the delightful Church Stretton and 12 miles from the historic towns of Shrewsbury and Bishop’s Castle. This small Shropshire village boasts a shop and charming inn and is a perfect starting point for many scenic trails, with the summit of the famous Stiperstones Hill, a 1.5 mile walk, and the East Ridge Wood mountain bike trails very close by. This area is a designated National Nature Reserve, a SSSI and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is consequently a favourite place for outdoor and wildlife enthusiasts. The Stiperstones Hill range is dominated by dramatic quartzite tors, which tower above an unspoilt heathland, the most famous is the Devil’s Chair, whilst Manstone Rock is the highest point at 536m above sea level and offers stunning views on a clear day. A short drive away is one of England's finest heritage towns with over 600 listed buildings; Shrewsbury nestles on a loop of the River Severn. Shrewsbury has a magnificent abbey as well as Shrewsbury Castle, which stands in beautiful gardens and is home to the Shropshire Regimental Museum. There's plenty of interesting things to do in the area, with Attingham Park, Wroxeter Roman City, the museums at Ironbridge, and the castle and Michelin-starred restaurants of Ludlow, all making this hillside village the perfect touring spot for your Shropshire adventure.
