Town: Great Lyth is a pretty hamlet situated in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close to the stunning Shropshire hills including the Long Mynd and Caradoc which offer many walking, cycling, horse riding and scenic driving opportunities. The fascinating medieval town of Shrewsbury, renowned for its timber framed black and white buildings, is just five miles away The town offers a superb selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, pretty riverside walks, boat trips, and the beautiful Shrewsbury Abbey and Castle. The 10 museums of the World Heritage Centre of Ironbridge, Attingham Park, Stokesay Castle, the Wroxeter Roman City, and the picturesque town of Church Stretton are also all close to Great Lyth.

Close enough to a town but far enough into rural Shropshire, this cottage was an absolute delight. We were greeted with an immaculate and pretty cottage in super grounds. There was even a plate of tray bakes in the fridge which didn't last long at all!
Our two very young children loved the place and we were made to feel very welcome by the owners, who even took us egg hunting in their hen enclosure - my three year old daughter has not stopped talking about this or about Stanley the peacock.
The rooms were a perfect size, the facilities fabulous and the beds very comfortable.
I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to anyone and will in fact return regularly when time permits!

The cottage was lovely and homely, very welcoming. The area was gorgeous even though it rained when we were there! Definitely go back there as can't fault the place one bit. The owner was lovely as well and we bought all out organic veg from her at a very reasonable price!
