Region: A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was “the quietest place under the sun” and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.
Town: Set amidst the rolling hills of the South Shropshire countryside, the village of Cardington boasts the oldest pub in Shropshire - The Royal Oak – which is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Its rural location makes a wonderful base whilst sightseeing and the village provides miles of country paths in all directions through the beautiful Shropshire hills, making this an excellent spot for cyclists and walkers. There is a wide variety of birdlife – including buzzards, woodpeckers and ravens – as well as the Acton Scott Historic Working Farm, Severn Valley Steam Railway, Stokesay Castle, Shrewsbury, Ludlow and the Ironbridge Gorge – boasting as many as 10 museums. The attractive market towns of Church Stretton - known as 'Little Switzerland' by the Victorians - and Much Wenlock are both within easy driving distance and offer a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants.Read more

We have stayed here two years in a row, and plan to stay again. The buildings are just gorgeous. Sarah and her family are wonderful, they can't do enough for you. The cottages are all very beautiful, and it is difficult to choose between them. It's very much a family place and caters for grand children and grand parents alike. You can take toddlers for short walks to see horses, chickens, and pigs. Older children have the games area which is suitable for every age,(including adults). Nature lovers can go for long walks in the surrounding countryside, and grandparents can sit on the patio drinking tea and watching all the activities. We have only stayed during the winter; it must be a wonderful place in the summer when you can take picnics and sit by the lake or play a game of rounders in the fields.

This is a gorgeous cottage that exceeded our expectations! Plenty of room and everything thought of and provided for - just amazing. Lots to do on the farm and the family could not be more friendly or helpful.

The Olde Cow House was very comfortable and well equipped. It was also in a very good position for visitng places of interest. The local people were friendly and the village shop a few yards away where papers and fresh could be bought with ease. A very good holiday property.
