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.

The cottage is beautiful - we were able to lie in the enormous bed in the large beamed bedroom and look straight through the window at an amazing view. We were greeted with flowers on the kitchen table and an invitation to help ourselves to breakfast items. It was February so the log stove was very welcome and the additional heating ensured we were warm and cosy. At other times of the year it would be lovely to go on the walks over the fields from the door (unfortunately waterlogged after the recent torrential rains.) We chose to stay in and cook in the evenings and it was a pleasure in the well equipped kitchen. There were plenty of interesting places to visit in the daytime however. We would certainly like to go again one day.

The cottage was one of the best we have stayed in. The kitchen particulary was well stocked with cuttlery, crockery and other utensils. The cottage was ideally suited as a retreat for just the two of us, but equally as good for an additional child/relative with their own private bedroom. The enclosed garden was excellent for our golden retriever. The weather was not too kind to us and the the lanes on approach became rather flooded on occassions. We spent a lot of time walking our dog on 'The Long Mynd' and in Carding Mill Valley (a real treasure). A week was not long enough and there is so much more to explore. We will be back soon.
