This property is part of our Welcome Cottages collection

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


A great cottage for a small family or two couples, with walking direct from the door and an abundance of local attractions.

This pair of pretty stone barn conversions sit overlooking the well tended grounds and private lakes of the owners 40-acre estate. Coarse fishing is available free of charge for guests (licence required). They have been thoughtfully furnished and renovated to provide quality accommodation where guests can relax and unwind. Located in south Shropshire, just outside the village of Hope Bowdler, with walking direct from your door onto the hills of Hope Bowdler and Church Stretton, or gently stroll around the fields and woodlands of the estate, enjoying the varied wildlife.

Positioned between the historic towns of Much Wenlock, birthplace of the modern olympic games, and Church Stretton, home of the Long Mynd, both towns offer a good selection of shops, bars, deli’s and restaurants. Shropshire’s most well known towns of Ludlow, Shrewsbury and Ironbridge are all easily accessible, and the borders for Wales and Herefordshire are also nearby. The River Severn runs through the county and offers boat trips from select locations, as well as canoeing and kayaking. National Trust properties Attingham Park in Shropshire, Powys Castle near Welshpool, and Berrington Hall in Herefordshire are all within an hours drive. Acton Scott working farm, Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre, Stokesay Castle, Ludlow festivals, castle and racecourse are all nearby, as is Hereford Cathedral, with its chained library. The Edge Adventure Activity Centre offers high ropes courses, mountain boarding, quad trekking and clay shooting. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 1½ miles. The Old Barn (ref UKC2048) can be booked together with The Old Stables (ref UKC2049) to accommodate up to 6 guests.

    The cottage is lovely. It is well equipped and spacious. The are is lovely -we would recommend the walking from the cottage up Hope Bowdler Hill and also the walk up the Long Mynd from Church Stretton. Much Wenlock is a lovely small town and well worth a visit. Ludlow too is lovely and an easy short drive.
