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: Church Stretton is a pretty market town in the heart of rural south Shropshire. Described as “Little Switzerland", the town is surrounded by stunning scenery and is the major part of Shropshire's hill country. The town offers a good selection of pubs, tearooms, and specialist shops, as well as other attractions including fantastic walking opportunities on the Long Mynd; the fascinating Acton Scott Working Farm, and the ancient Stokesay Castle. Shrewsbury, Ironbridge, Ludlow, Much Wenlock and Bishops Castle are all historic local towns with much to offer to visitors, and they are all an easy drive away from Church Stretton, as are the beautiful Welsh Borders.Read more

Very comfortable cottage which is well equipped. Good kitchen, super home cinema and brilliant views of the Stiperstones. Loads of very peaceful and gentle walks from the cottage/within a few miles. More goats, turkeys,sheep and llamas than people. Good pub food nearby. Seems a little known gem of an area. One small minor point, the drive to the property is a bit rough.

A stunning cottage in a fantastic location. Well furnished and very comfortable. Beautiful views from the cottage. Could not have asked for a better cottage and location for a relaxing week. Plenty to see and do in the area. Home cinema system fantastic and a wonderful wood burner.

We booked this cottage fairly last minute and needed to find somewhere that allowed pets.
Having booked everything on line, it was a simple process and directions and instructions followed shortly afterwards.
We wanted something quiet and out of the way and we certainly got it.
The cottage looked quite dramatic as we approached it and once inside, we couldn't believe our luck. The decor and furnishings surpassed our expectations. The welcome tray was very handy and even had a bottle of vino to let us chill out with whilst awaiting the Tesco delivery booked on line a few days before we arrived.
As a party of 2 adults and 2 16 year old boys, the home cinema system proved a hit with everyone.
The cottage is ideally suited to go out walking on anything from 3 miles to 14 miles and all starting and ending either at the cottage, or the local (and only) pub.
We highly recommend the goats cheese and quails eggs off the smallholder behind the cottage.
Take your walking boots, a day sack, a good book and an energetic Labrador and you have all the ingredients for a great week. (Oh! And a showerproof jacket for the weather on the hills.)
