BADGER COTTAGE, pet friendly, character holiday cottage, with a garden in Much Wenlock, Ref 1275
Much Wenlock is a beautiful village that's over 700 years old and sits at the end of the Wenlock Edge, known for its walking, cycling and horse riding routes. This property is a semi-detached brick barn that has been converted into a holiday home. The house is located in a courtyard on the 70-acre farm and has bundles of rustic appeal with oak wood beams and other original features adding to the charm. Guests receive a complimentary welcome pack on arrival, which includes a bottle of wine, a loaf of homemade bread and some free-range eggs. The property is made up of 2 twin bedrooms, bathroom with separate shower and bath, a modern equipped kitchen and dining space and a large living room. The house is bright and airy throughout and there are some stunning views of the countryside available all around the house.

There are two unfenced ponds in the garden - children must be supervised. Note: The doors at this cottage are not large enough for a wheelchair. Note: The mobile signal in this area is very poor.
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: The village itself is home to a plethora of shops and chocolate-box style cottages, as well as plenty of pubs and restaurants serving up anything from a light snack to a full-blown Sunday roast. There's much history to be seen in the area too including a Prior built in the 1100's, a Norman church and even the village's old Gaol House. The popular towns of Bridgnorth and the foodie paradise of Ludlow are nearby. Much Wenlock is a great place to base yourself and family if you want to explore all that this part of Shropshire has to offer.

We had a great holiday at Badger Cottage. Gorgeous place and lots of wild life in the lovely grounds surrounding the cottage. Our dogs enjoyed the freedom, and if they were happy, so were we!
Splendid hosts with friendly dogs and gorgeous horses.
Much Whenlock was a very pleasant surprise. Gorgeous old-fashioned shops.
My husband spent some of his childhood there seventy years ago, and was surprised how little it had changed.

We received an excellent service from the owner and she most friendly. The property was very spacious although some of the furniute was a little worn, and the property was not as clean as it could be, especially the cooker. The property was alittle way out from the amenities but we liked this as it was very private although there were plenty of attractions within an easy car ride i.e. Much Wenlock and the olympic trail, and Ironbridge.

The barn conversion near Much Wenlock is large, modern and very comfortable with all the facilities you would expect in a holiday let. The sitting room and kitchen are large, the two bedrooms comfortable too. The owners are welcoming and guests have the use of a very large garden.
The only downside was the isolation of the property which made it a long distance to the nearest main road.

The cottage was very clean and tidy and the views were fantastic. The owners were very helpful and the accomadation was spacious and beautifully decorated. To stay at this cottage you would definately need a car but it was very quiet and paeceful. The resident pets were very friewndly and were always there to greet us on our return from a day out. it is somewhere that we would think about staying again
