Stable End Ref 2528
Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Situated in a charming rural location, around an attractive courtyard with three cottages, this property is just two miles from the quaint village of Bucknell. The cosy, king-sized bedroom comes with original wooden beams and exposed brick-work, as does much of the rest of the property. With a welcoming, open-plan living area that incorporates a fitted kitchen and dining table, as well as a pretty front patio for relaxing on or dining outdoors, this property is a great spot for a second honeymoon or romantic break. And with so much to see and do in the local area, it'll be a tough choice whether to stay in and enjoy the house, or go out and explore the countryside.

The Heart of England/Peak District
A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.
Nestled in the beautiful South Shropshire valley of the River Teme is the pretty village of Bucknell, complete with two village pubs â€“ both of which serve food. Close to the borders of Wales and Herefordshire, quiet, peaceful village is set in a lovely area of beautiful, unspoiled countryside â€“ ideal for ramblers and hill walkers. The historic market town of Ludlow is close by and is well renowned for the superb quality of its restaurants. Ironbridge provides a wealth of museums whilst the historic town of Shrewsbury is also within easy driving distance. Local towns of Craven Arms and Knighton offer a full range of amenities. Stopping in the village is the Heart of Wales Railway, taking visitors through beautiful, hillside scenery and to the south are the quaint, wood-beamed cottages and cider orchards of North Herefordshire.
