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: 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.

Really liked the accommodation - just right for family if four. Gardens are wonderful and make for a good stroll after dinner. Lots of places nearby to visit especially Ludlow. Lots of farm animals to spend time with. Thoroughly enjoyable. Sat nav recommended, lots of narrow lanes to navigate.
A place with a secret

This excellent property enjoys access to a delightful woodland area with lakes and waterfalls that cannot be seen from the road and is entirely private. It is worth booking just for this!
As well as this the owners could not be more helpful.

The purpose of our holiday was, as two friends who'd had a difficult year, we wanted to 'step aside' from everything, and we were certainly able to do this at this lovely holiday 'escape'.
The welcome was friendly, the accommodation excellent, and the surroundings wonderful.Such beautiful countryside, with access to so many fantastic places. The cottage was very comfortable and had alomost everything we needed. (We would have preferred a washing machine to a dishwasher!) To open the door each morning to such a lovely view--horses in the fields,trees and birds, and very friendly hens whose aim seemed to be to join us for breakfast!!
All in all we couldn't have found a better 'bolt hole' and would recommend it to anyone for a lovely holiday.
There were only two 'downside'factors. There was no hanging space in the second bedroom; we were plagued by flies at times which meant food preparation could be difficult.Obviously this wasn't anyone's fault, butsome sort of electronic device might have helped to zap them!!)

The accomodation is set on a farm with nature close by. We were not able to go out because of extreme weather conditions but still the place was very relaxing and just what we needed.
