Welcome Cottages

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


A cosy cottage for a couple, complete with a wood burner, making it ideal for all year use, with walking direct from your door.

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.

    An ideal place as a base for walking and sightseeing in the area. Well equipped cottage in a lovely setting with lovely hosts. Only thing missing for me was a bath to soak in after a long day out walking!

    Every thing you could need for a relaxed break. Beautiful cottage lovely well kept grounds with a number of diffrent seating areas to just sit and chill. Our dog also enjoyed the freedom around the cottage and the beautiful countryside. The two fishing lakes just outside the cottage were a extra bonus. Well worth a visit.

    Very comfortable cottage in a lovely location. We just wanted a quiet break so it hit the spot. Friendly owners who were extremely helpful. We hope to come back earlier in the year next time when can explore the surrounding area much more fully.

    We booked this cottage on bonfire weekend to avoid the fireworks at home as our dog hates them. We had a lovely weekend both at the cottage and walking in the local area. We hadn't realised how many wonderful walks there were in the area. We also visited Attingham Park, which had some some great autumn walks around the grounds. The cottage had everything we needed for a pleasant weekend away. Thank you.
