Parking is next to the cottage and access is via a stone paved terrace. There is a small lawn at the back of the cottage, which is the 'garden'. However, the property is unattached and borders pastureland, woodland, a stream and river and does not really need much of a garden. We provide garden table and chairs in the summer.
The cottage sleeps four people comfortably in two bedrooms; a cot and an airbed are also available for extra family members. The front door opens onto one open space with a large inglenook fireplace complete with bread oven, dominating the ‘living’ end of the room. Here you can sit around the open fire telling stories, reading, listening to music or watching television. At the other end, there is a fully equipped kitchen with hand built oak units and a large refectory table. There is also a small cloakroom with lavatory and washbasin and room for wellies and boots. Home made bread, butter, milk and fresch eggs from the farm’s hens are provided as are tea and coffee.
First Floor Description
Wooden stairs lead up to a spacious landing and to one room with two single beds, the bathroom and the double bedroom with a magnificent chimney breast. The cottage keeps it’s ancient authenticity and rural feel by retaining the old beams complete with redundant peg holes through which the children can spy on their parents! Oak flooring with rugs and mats adds to the cosy and comfortable feel of the place; though watch your heads, some of the doorways are very low.
Windows Views Description
Stunning views of the beautiful Shropshire farmland with its green fields, sheep and cattle and with every season a different scene.
Dog owners should be aware that there is no secure area next to the cottage to allow them to roam free.
There is no mobile signal, nor wi-fi/broadband as yet. The track to the farm is stone and can be pot-holed at times. Best to take it carefully and know that my little car (nearly new) goes up and down regularly.
