Westhope Country Retreats

These five quality brick-built barn conversions are situated in a lovely courtyard setting on the owners' 250-acre farm, on the edge of Westhope village, just six miles from the delightful town of Church Stretton in Shropshire. Originally part of a 19th century stable block, these Westhope cottages have been sympathetically renovated and furnished to a high standard, boasting original, exposed beams and trusses throughout, yet offering all the comforts of modern living. Three of these lovely cottages boast their own private hot tubs, while all five have shared use of the games room and gym, great to while away the hours of an afternoon. Situated at the southern end of Wenlock Edge, the area offers great walking and cycling opportunities and provides a delightful location to relax and unwind. Discover the Long Mynd hills or medieval Ludlow and Shrewsbury with their wonderful architecture, castles, shops and restaurants. Just 3 miles away is Acton Scott Working Farm, as seen in the Victorian Farm TV programme. With day trips to the museums at the World Heritage Site at Ironbridge, scenic rides on the Severn Valley Railway, Stokesay Castle, Wroxeter Roman City and many wonderful country houses and gardens, this great location has plenty to offer all the family.

The property

A luxury detached cottage set in the delightful village of Westhope in Shropshire.

Set in a beautiful location with a sufficient space inside and out, this property is perfect for big groups in the stunning countryside.

The inviting exterior with stone walls and oak window and door frames welcome you into the well-equipped, spacious kitchen, finished with stylish, modern equipment and decor.

The large sitting room overlooks the astounding garden and countryside beyond, whilst being complete with contemporary furniture, underfloor heating, bi-fold doors and a 50'' Smart TV with DVD player; it makes the perfect chill area.

The downstairs is complete with a bright and airy double bedroom and an en-suite shower room.

The upstairs reveals four stunning bedrooms with charming decoration and views towards the stunning scenery.

The vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and comfortable beds really make this a family and friends cottage.

The garden is nothing short of sensational, beautifully landscaped with flashy furniture and a hot tub, you will do well to even leave this cottage and get into Westhope itself.

The garden also contains a compact yet impressive studio living area, decorated beautifully and set away from the main building for those who like to get away.
