Stiperstones View at Lower Farm, Shelve

Lovely converted airy farm workers' loft with fantastic unspoilt views with the next property a mile away. Fully furnished kitchen, full size appliances, separate kitchen/dining room.

Fantastic walking country with lots of rights of way littering the countryside as remnants of the lead mining industry that died out at the end of the 19th century. There are a variety of walks starting from the property, ranging from a leisurely stroll to Shelve Pool (a SSSI due to the way the vegetation grows on the water surface), a trip round ancient mine remains, bronze age stone circles or visit to Bishops Castle via the Shropshire Way.

Additional Location Information

Shelve is a village of 7 houses with a church with no street lights. Whilst being easily accessible by tarred road (which is kept clear of snow better than the main A road as the farmer has a contract to snowplough), this delightful place is quiet and unspoilt by street lights. With a south facing aspect the garden area takes in sun from mid morning to evening time allowing a relaxing time. For those interested in walking we have loads of trails - the Flenny Bank walk comes through the property, Mucklewick and BC Ring are close by and many other routes have been devised coming through Shelve, including trails up the nearby Stiperstones or Corndon HIll for the more energetic.
The area is an industrial heritage gem, with lead mines dating back 2,000 years showcased at Snailbeach mine, fantastic hospitality at The Bog Visitor centre, and Bishops castle market town just ten minutes drive away with quirky shops. Slightly further afield there are ten museums at Ironbridge, the Land of Lost Content and Stokesay Castle at Craven Arms, Ludlow (food capital of UK) and Shrewsbury - home to Darwin and Wilfred Owen.
There is loads of parking space and the bus from Shrewsbury to Bishops castle stops a mile away
