Stylish cottage located in the beautiful Shropshire Hills surrounded by rolling countryside, and yet just three miles from the attractive foodie haven of Ludlow.

This property enjoys a fantastic countryside location in South Shropshire, with miles of country walks accessible directly from the front door. The area around the property has many lovely villages to discover, many of which have welcoming country pubs. If food is your thing, then this cottage is in a fantastic location thanks to its proximity to Ludlow, which lies just three miles away. Famed for its annual food festival, the town remains a popular foodie destination all year round, thanks to its numerous well-regarded eateries, many of which specialise in local produce. The town is also home to a good range of shops, as well as to Ludlow Castle, a medieval fort which dates back more than 900 years, Clee Hill is a short drive away from the property which boasts stunning views.

On entering this attractive cottage, guests will immediately gain a sense of just how much time and love has been put into creating a welcoming holiday home.

The washing machine , freezer and tumble dryer, meanwhile, can be found in a separate laundry room, which is housed in a separate building just next to the cottage. Moving on from the kitchen/diner, guests will come to the delightful lounge, where they are able to relax in front of the cosy wood burner and catch up on their favourite TV programmes, or perhaps enjoy a DVD. This room leads through to a snug which can be used as an additional bedroom for up to two people, for parties exceeding four guests. There is also a convenient cloakroom with WC located on the ground floor. Stairs lead from the dining area up to the first-floor accommodation, where there are two bedrooms: one of these is a restful king-size room, whilst the other is a pleasant twin room (which can be made up as a super-king-size on request), both of which benefit from en-suite facilities, one with a bath, rainfall shower with hand-held shower and WC, the other with a rainfall shower , hand held shower head and WC.

Loved the way it was renovated with lots of wood. Loved the steps from kitchen to sitting room (not suitable for the disabled though). Quiet. Comfortable beds. The duvet was very good with real feathers and therefore very comfortable. Enough space for parking your car (or 2 if you have). Very, very friendly owners.
