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: Shrawardine is a quiet and secluded village situated in the beautiful Shropshire countryside, ideally located for touring this scenic county. Shrawardine is an easy drive away from the stunning Shropshire hills of the Long Mynd, Stiperstones and Caradoc, with their exceptional walking, biking and horse riding opportunities. Shrawardine is home to the fascinating ruins of a 13th Century Norman castle with impressive views. Just six miles away the medieval city of Shrewsbury, offering a choice of shops, pubs and restaurants, a new theatre, timber-framed black-and-white buildings, riverside walks, an abbey and a castle, is waiting to be explored. Also close to Shrawardine are Church Stretton, Ludlow, the Severn Valley Railway and the Ironbridge Gorge museums.

Cottage is very comfortable, well equipped and very roomy with everything that you ought to need.We were lucky enough to have splendid weather and so able to sit outside in the sunshine. You have to be careful that the chickens don't come into the house though! The location means lots of interesting places are not very far away (various National Trust places and interesting Market towns etc). The owner was very helpful in suggesting places to go to eat - and the portions you get tend to be 'huge'. I'd imagine the walking and cycling from the cottage are great as it is flat there - but that was something that we were unable to do this time. I'd love to go here again.It was a real bonus having a bedroom downstairs with its own shower room - which is very suitable for an older or disabled person. .

We stayed in Sykes cottage over Christmas 2012. The interior ofthe property was clean, cosy and fitted out to a high standard. I had been nervous about the prospect of cooking a Christmas dinner in a "holiday home". I need not have been concerned - the kitchen has double oven and large american style fridge freezer.
The living room was cosy, with log burner belting out the heat required at this time of year.
The accomodation is in a rural setting but only 5 miles from Shrewsbury, which is great for shopping and restaurants.
We had a great stay, only negative was a loss of electricity due to fuse blowing and it not being re-settable from cottage, only from main house. However, owners sorted this out quickly.
Perfect location and lovely cottage

A high spec cottage, and very comfortable. Great location for walks with plenty of places for our dog to go off lead ( closest the Millenium field just 50 or so yards away!). Very quiet area - we loved it!
