Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Squire Cottage is an old farmhouse built from local stone, timber and plaster. It sits at the top of the Meadow looking down towards the River Redlake, the babbling brook and the ancient wet woodland. The cottage sleeps four people comfortably in two bedrooms. The front door opens into one large room with an inglenook fireplace complete with bread oven dominating the ‘living’ end. Here you can sit in comfortable old sofas and chairs in front of a large open fire telling stories, reading, listening to music, playing games 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, washbasin and washing machine.
Wooden stairs (mind your head and don’t be distracted by the view on the way up) lead to a spacious landing and the two bedrooms and bathroom. One bedroom has twin beds and the other a double bed and a magnificent chimney breast. The cottage keeps its ancient authenticity and rural feel by retaining the old beams complete with redundant peg holes through which the children can spy on their parents! New oak flooring with rugs and mats add to the cosy and comfortable feel of the place; though watch your heads, some of the doorways are very low.
There is central heating and hot water provided by an oil-fired boiler. Bed linen and towels are included in the price as are logs for the fire and electricity, there is a telephone in the cottage should you need one. A cot is available (please ask) and children and well-behaved pets are welcome.

The Heart of England/Peak District
The Redlake Valley is a quiet forgotten valley of exceptional beauty. Squire Farm is situated just outside the village of Chapel Lawn which is dominated to the south by Caer Caradoc - an old hill fort and to the north, an old village owned wooded hill, Brineddin Wood.
We are very close to plenty of interesting places to visit like Ludlow with it's castle, beautiful church, restaurants and old, half-timbered buildings. There are castles, large country houses, National Trust properties and gardens, most of which are open all year (though do check first). Acton Scott Victorian Working Farm is about 30 minutes drive away and nearby is the Long Mynd, famous for wind gliding and long walks. Presteigne is not far, with it's Judge's Lodging and interesting shops.
Whether you want to walk, cycle or ride, there are plenty of well marked footpaths, cycle tracks and bridleways as well as quiet country lanes.

My wife and I visited this cottage with our baby.
If you want a central location with a vibrant village in walking distance this isn't the cottage for you as it is nicely off the beaten track. It is a short drive from amenities but far enough away to make you feel like you are getting away from it all.
The kitchen is vey well stocked with all the essentials for a short break. There is a lovely cosy lounge area with a fantastic inglenook fireplace. The bedrooms are clean and functional.
My only complaint would be that the upstairs of the house got very cold whilst we were there especially at night. Possibly installing a log burner would be more efficient than the open fire and would heat the cottage better?
Definitely worth visiting and we would certainly go back in the future.
Thank you for taking the time to send this review and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Squire Cottage. It is useful to know that the bedrooms were not as warm as you would have liked and will ensure that during the winter months we draw attention to the thermostats on the radiators. We can and do make supplementary heating available as necessary. The open fire in the inglenook fireplace is an special part of the cottage and whilst we have considered installing a wood burner, it would be a shame to loose this unique feature.

idyllic rural location, some people might struggle with no mobile signal but we found it a bonus on our long-weekend break. lovely places to visit by car, we went out each day as none of us knew Shropshire - therefore our stay wasn't long enough to fit in anything but a couple of short local walks from the cottage ie 1 hour, but I'm sure that there are possibilities for longer ones. Would certainly like to return and see more of the area.
Thank you for taking the time to submit your review as we value feedback from our guests. Some find the lack of a mobile signal a blessing to totally escape the intrusion of every day life and we do provide access to a landline for the convenience of our guests for any essential calls. There are several really good walks of varying lengths right on the doorstep and we are happy to provide maps and advice, but make sure you bring your wellies or good walking shoes.

The house is in a lovely location, the scenery is stunning. The house was comfortable and well equipped. The only downsides were the sofa and the flies.
Thank you for your review, we agree it is a lovely location. We can only apologise for the flies; it's the warmth and sunshine - brings everybody out, including the flies! We can provide fly papers and spray if needed.
