Little Stretton lies in the heart of the Shropshire Hills and nestles in Long Mynd's foothills. With 2 bedrooms, Jessamine Cottage offers idyllic accommodation for groups of up to 4 people. Exposed beams, a wood-burning stove and a four-poster bed provide the ideal ambience for that 'getting away from it all' experience at any time of year. For the summer months, the property has its own rear garden, from which you can enjoy a light bite and a glass of wine on a warm evening. There is off-road parking available for up to 2 cars, although the local shop and excellent local pub are less than 3 minutes' walk away.
Amenities: LPG central... heating with woodburning stove in sitting room. Electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher, TV with basic Sky package, DVD, stereo/CD player etc. Fuel, power and starter pack for woodburner inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Cot and highchair available. Off road parking for 2 cars. Pretty garden with garden furniture and BBQ. One well-behaved dog welcome at a charge of £15 per week. Sorry, no smoking. Shop 2 mins walk, pub 1 min walk. Note: Narrow cottage staircase at property.
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: It has two pubs and a thatched church. Other amenities, such as shops, pubs, banks and teashops, are just up the road in Church Stretton. Little Stretton is the starting point for a popular ramble up the beautiful and rugged Ashes Hollow, which takes you to the top of the Long Mynd. From the top of the Mynd, which is covered in purple heather in the summer, walkers can descend to the National Trust shop in Cardingmill Valley before returning via Church Stretton. Across the main valley, a stiff climb to the marker post on Ragleth Hill will lead you to a lovely walk along its high ridge and to a more gradual descent into Church Stretton. Little Stretton is also within easy reach of other attractions in Shropshire, such as historic Shrewsbury, the market-tow of Ludlow and the ancient spectacle of Stokesay Castle.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

The cottage was great with everything we needed. Garden was great as the weather was fab. Local walks were ideal. Town close enough to walk, plenty of shops to browse round. All in all we had a tremendous week we would definately return.

This place deserves a 5 star rating in our opinion. The cottage is wonderfully clean and well equipped and the owner provided so many extras that made the holiday so enjoyable and stress free. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise and the information pack covered all eventualities and contained much more than we had expected. All equipment had instructions which made life much easier and staying there was relaxing,the holiday was a REAL holiday with no stress and hassle. The owner was so welcoming and nothing was to much trouble. We highly recommend this fabulous cottage and all the beautiful countryside around it, the dogs loved all the walks and Church Stretton was a wonderful town to visit, full of character and interesting shops. This spot is ideal for exploring the area as it is central and in easy reach of Ludlow, Bridgenorth, Ironbridge and Shrewsbury, all worth a visit.
