Property code: CHL32

Stunning rural property, with a stylish minimalist aesthetic, set close to the owner’s home, and yet still affording guests a high level of privacy in the midst of the surrounding woodland.

This property is a converted Forge and  enjoys a fantastically secluded rural location in the grounds of the artist owners’ property in the beautiful Shropshire countryside. The location makes it ideal for those who want to escape the stresses and strains of daily life and decompress on quiet country walks in the surrounding hills or just admiring the birds and wildlife found on your doorstep. Clee Hill is within walking distance of the property, offering breath-taking views over the surrounding area or why not explore Mortimer or The Wyre Forest nearby. Just a few miles away, the town of Ludlow, famed for its food festival, is a wonderful place to spend a day browsing the shops, admiring the Georgian architecture (the town has over 500 listed buildings), and sampling the food in the town’s many highly-regarded restaurants and bistros.

Approaching this property along the farm track, gives guests a taste of what is to come: a secluded countryside retreat with a unique charm, where the rural surroundings are made, very much, a part of the overall experience. On entering the property, across the terrace and through the glass double doors, guests come straight to the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, a light-filled space with a stylish minimalist air. The corner sofa makes a great place to relax in front of the TV and cosy wood burner, and enjoy the views out to the paddock, or perhaps catch up on a long-awaited book with a glass of wine. The dining table comfortably seats four, whilst the kitchen which runs along one edge of the room, is well-equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and washing machine. The bedroom, a double room, is a breath-taking sanctuary-like space, which, thanks to its huge floor-to-ceiling windows, creates the sensation that guests are sleeping right under the trees. The shower room, with its walk-in shower and WC, also benefits from a tall window, allowing guests to feel that much closer to nature.

Outside, the property has a raised decked terrace with garden furniture, providing guests with the perfect spot to enjoy al fresco drinks whilst listening to the breeze in the trees and watching the many fascinating birds and squirrels who come to feed. The owners also have an enclosed paddock next to the property, which contains some of the owner’s large sculpture work, which guests are free to use. In addition to this, guests are able to enjoy the surrounding woodlands. There is off-road parking provided.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £50 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

A peaceful and beautiful place for a weekend getaway! Cosy, rural retreat which was just what we needed. The dog loved the walks in the woods and across the fields.

We had the most wonderful relaxing break at the Artist's Retreat.

Stunning location, very scenic and lots of nature to enjoy. The glass patio window to the bedroom was a special feature and lovely to wake up to squirrels and birds every morning

If you like peace and tranquility and to be at one with nature then this is the place. We enjoyed walks from the property and time seemed to just drift past whilst sat in bed in the mornings just watching the variety of birds feeding from the bird feeders, often in competition with the squirrels. It was also nice to watch the pheasants and a coupleRead more of times a fox meandered through the grounds. The beautiful floor to ceiling bedroom window is the only barrier between you and nature, just lovely. Hide

If you want to get away from it all Artists' Retreat is the ideal place. Set at the bottom of narrow lane and across a shallow ford it's located in deep countryside there is no noise, no street lights just lots of nature and plenty of peace. The bedroom has a ceiling to floor window and you could watch the birds at the feeder all day. Although the Read morevillage is isolated Ludlow, the Severn Valley Railway and numerous National Trust houses are nearby so there is no shortage of things to do. Hide

This is the 2nd time we have been to The Artists Retreat and once again we had a fabulous holiday. The location is the best we have stayed in with woods, field and a paddock to explore. Our dog was able to wander freely and safely and didn't want to come home! The cottage has all the basic equipment for self catering and it has a rustic feel with aRead more fabulous log burner for cosy evenings when it gets a bit chilly. We look forward to returning next year. Hide

In an excellent location for visiting such places as Ludlow, Clee Hill, Malvern, Worcester, Shrewsbury and other places in the South Shropshire/Worcestershire/Hereford area.
