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: Set on the southern slopes of Titterstone Clee Hill and surrounded by glorious rolling countryside is the remote hamlet of Hope Bagot. This village is close to the historic market town of Ludlow â a settlement situated on the River Teme which boasts nearly 500 listed buildings and original medieval street patterns. Renowned for its shopping facilities, Ludlow is packed with antique shops, art and craft stores and more Michelin-starred restaurants than anywhere else outside London. There are also numerous tea-rooms, pubs and inns. The town's traditional street markets are held in the shadow of the castle, and offer a range of local goods, including cheeses, fresh produce, books and crafts. The castle itself boasts fascinating architecture and is over 900 years old. The village is also within easy reach of Church Stretton, Shrewsbury and Hereford, as well as popular attractions such as the Ironbridge Gorge, the Severn Valley Railway, Berrington Hall and Cardingmill Valley.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

Well equipped cottage in peaceful location at reasonable weekly
Left on 01/07/2014 for a stay in October 2013 | Jean and Budd
The owners were very welcoming and provided lots of little extras ie wine, cake, eggs and milk. The cottage had everything that you could possibly need to self-cater, and it was set in a rural and pretty location. There was plenty to do/see in the surrounding area, plus lots of good walks,and, amazingly, although it was October, the weather was great. The last few nights were colder, so the wood burning stove was most welcome.
The only negative, and this was due to there being cows in an adjoining field, was that on one night, one of the bedrooms was beseiged by flies- these were easily dealt with by the fly spray provided. Check the rooms well before you retire as that allows time for any spray used to dissipate, and the hoover to be employed, before you go to bed.
Great cottage in a beautiful area.

A great time was had by all four of us it was a very peaceful holiday in a beautiful setting. There was everything you could possibly want in the cottage and more besides. As we were three different age groups we all took many memories of our week there which were all good. The garden area was really enjoyable surrounded by lovely plants.

One of the most beautiful, comfortable and peaceful holiday cottages my family have stayed at, Little Orchard cottage comes highly recommended. It is spaceous, tastefully decorated and superbly equipped. The owners were extremely helpful and the welcome pack was a sweet touch (what a fantastic cake!). As for the location, well, what can I say? Shropshire is one of the most beautiful counties in England - ideal for those that love nature and the great outdoors.

A lovely cottage in an idyllic location

The owners greeted us on arrival informing us about the local facilities etc while our grandchildren went exploring the cottage. It was our granddaughters birthday the day we arrived and to our surprise a cake was on the table when we entered the kitchen. The cottage was just what we wanted with everything available and a good location to explore Shropshire. Ironbridge with its museums was our grandchildrens favourite. Could not fault the accommodation.
The best holiday let I've stayed in to date!

a lovely comfortable cottage to come back to after a good day's sightseeing, places were quite close, and beautiful and central to where we were staying,we had a lovely time but prehaps would pick one of your cottages closer to a small town or village as the cottage even though it was lovely a little remote.
Delightfully stress free!

Spent 5 days at this lovely cottage in a beautiful setting. The welcome from owners was lovely, and the touches like homemade cake,wine and eggs were unexpected,but very enjoyable.
The cottage was like 'home from home' with the amenties it had,we tavelled around the county seeing quite a bit of the countryside.
We spent a day on Severn Valley Railway, and time around the museums of Ironbridge, fantastic value for money.
Fantasic cottage in a great location

Lovely welcome from our hosts. All the extras were a thoughtful touch. Tv too small for large lounge. Very hot upstairs and no fan provided. A very peaceful holiday in a great location staying in a clean cottage. Dishwasher would be a good addition too.

Well appointed cottage!

Cottage very well appointed. Good attention to detail. Welcome tray of eggs, cake and tea facilities was much appreciated. Slightly off the beaten track but do take the time to go out and about, so many interesting places. The Hay Festival was well worth a visit, only a hour and a quarter away. Lots of castles, Stokesay, Ludlow, Hampton Court. Good food court at Ludlow...go there first, not the supermarket! If it's wet, go to Dudley...Merryhill Shopping Centre...cinema, shops, supermarkets, petrol station. About an hour and a quarter away. Locally, visit Church Stretton...very pretty.
