What we love

A beautiful and quaint little cottage with an extremely friendly owner makes this an ideal getaway for you to enjoy the sights of three counties.


With its original features this cosy cottage makes an ideal retreat for a couple wanting to explore the three counties of Shropshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

All on the ground floor.
Open plan living space: With wooden floor.
Living area: With wood burner, 32" Freeview TV and single sofa bed (for flexible sleeping arrangements).
Dining area.
Kitchen area: With electric cooker, microwave and fridge.
Bedroom: With double bed and en-suite with shower cubicle, toilet and heated towel rail.

Electricity, bed linen, towels, Wi-Fi and logs for wood burner included. Welcome pack. External laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer (shared with owner). Patio. Large lawned garden with patio and garden furniture (shared with owner). Private parking for 2 cars, 20 yards away. No smoking.

Nestling alongside the discreet owner’s property, the Little Bothy is located on the main road between Tenbury Wells and Ludlow on the Shropshire side of the River Teme. Originally built in 1867 for the district nurse to treat patients in the village, the Little Bothy was restored during the early years of the 21st century by the previous owner. Many of the original features have remained including the internal oak door which was previously the entrance. Little Bothy has a cosy double bedroom with an en-suite shower room in the original bothy, and a fabulous, well equipped, open plan kitchen/dining/living room. The beautiful garden, that you share with the owner, stretches out to the fields beyond, enjoying views over the rolling countryside and ideal for star gazing. On a warm day the patio doors can be thrown open onto its own patio in the garden, whilst during the cooler months, the wood burner ensures cosy living.
Little Bothy is the ideal location to explore the three counties of Shropshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire as it sits practically on the borders. Located in the old part of Burford village, Little Bothy is within walking distance of Burford House Gardens with its organic restaurant, garden centre, interior design shop, historic gardens and Burford St Mary’s Church. There is a dog-friendly pub nearby as well, whilst Tenbury Wells, just half a mile away, is also within walking distance, providing a host of individual shops, local food retailers and a plethora of eating places, as well as riverside walks and a good swimming pool. For more history, antiques, shopping and eating, Ludlow and Leominster are both within a 15-minute drive. National Trust properties, Croft Castle and Berrington Hall are also within easy reach. Tenbury Wells, Ludlow and Leominster offer a range of festivals throughout the year. Shop ½ mile, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

    Lovely stay in the cottage for New Year. Ideal location, nice, quite and peaceful. Penny made us feel very welcome and on arrival had left us a lovely basket with lots of little goodies

    Lovely cosy cottage in ideal location for visiting the many places of interest close by. Wonderful welcome from Penny who is so helpful and friendly, and the hamper of goodies was lovely. Ideal for my two dogs as they had free run of the garden. The wood burner was great for chilly evenings as it kept the cottage toasty warm as well as making a focal point in the living area. Would recommend especially for those travelling solo - you'll feel safe and comfortable at Little Bothy.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for taking time to leave a review. It’s always nice to read that a guest has enjoyed a stay at Little Bothy but doubly so to read that you felt safe and secure as a solo traveller. You will be very welcome to return with your two lovely dogs who really were an absolute delight to have here.

    Left early road noise a problem bed head was on outside wall. Just meters away from busy road. Bedroom very small property not cleaned properly.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; I do find this comment rather odd amongst all the others. I have an excellent cleaner the bedroom is small yes but there is space to swing a cat and get all around the double bed. It’s in the old Victorian part of Little Bothy, where the district nurse would have treated her patients, the quirky part of the building. The living area, where most guests spend most of their time is very spacious. I’m sorry you couldn’t sleep. The road is not busy at night so I can’t imagine that it was that which kept you awake. There are trees and buildings between the Bothy and the road. I am sorry you chose to leave early without speaking to me about your concerns. I would have happily addressed the cleaning issue if you had told me about it. I’m sorry that Little Bothy was not for you. It’s such a lovely place, usually really enjoyed as you can see from other reviews.
