Town: The rural village of Eaton-under-Heywood lies under both the famous Wenlock Edge and the woods that run along it, and is surrounded by scenic countryside. From the village, the Jacob's Ladder path leads straight up the Edge, providing lovely walks. Nearby is the market town of Church Stretton, which lies in the heart of south Shropshire. It is set amid striking scenery and has often been described as "Little Switzerland". The town is the main centre for Shropshire's hill country and home to a variety of tearooms, pubs and specialist shops. Other local attractions include walks on the Long Mynd, the Acton Scott Working Farm as seen on TV, and Stokesay Castle. The historic towns of Shrewsbury, Ludlow, the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, Much Wenlock and Bishops Castle are only a short journey away.

A most picturesque location and the livestock add greatly to the enjoyment of our stay. The accommodation is compact but met all our requirements and we and our dogs were made to feel so welcome. Thoroughly recommend!

We had a wonderful time, the cottage was delightful and we really enjoyed seeing the various animals and birds. Woolfie (our cat) would have loved to bring home Percy the Peacock. We were very lucky with the weather and Shropshire is a beautiful county. I would recommend this cottage to anybody that enjoys country life.
Peaceful retreat in lovely surroundings

Kite's Nest is a cosy, well equipped cottage. We found it to be very comfortable and in a lovely setting on the farm with peacocks, chickens and ducks visiting us daily. The cottage is in a very quiet rural location with walks available from the door step. The only downside for us was the very narrow roads from Church Stretton to the accommodation which we found a little too narrow for our liking. A beautiful area though and a really lovely little cottage.
