Key Info

  • Car not necessary

A holiday in Redwood Heights offers a modern, spacious apartment, with stunning views across the valley to the Long Mynd. The town is 10 mins walk away with its pubs, shops, restaurants, teashops, Leisure Centre, antique shops. Stretton is a 'welcome to walkers' town. The train from Church Stretton travels to Shrewsbury and Ludlow or further into mid Wales. There are drives further afield to visit castles or the museums of Ironbridge (home of the industrial revolution). Stokesay Castle is two miles away, a fortified manor house.

There are 15 steps up to the property. The apartment has every facility for self catering; putting your feet up, sitting on the private deck and enjoying the tranquility. The view is National Trust land so it will always be the same, only changing with the seasons. Gas and electric heaters can be adjusted individually by you so you will always be comfortable. There is a fan in the bedroom for warmer weather. There are wild horses on the Hills and many sheep. It is a do nothing or do all holiday. We are usually around for help and advice - but generally you will be left in peace and quiet - the choice, of course, is yours.

The Heart of England/Peak District

Shropshire is a very large county. Redwood Heights is in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Much Wenlock is 10 miles away, the home of the first Olympics. A drive up The Burway (or take the shuttle bus in summer) to the top of the Long Mynd (Mountain) flat walks can be enjoyed, through the heather where wild horses are seen and lots of sheep. The view coming back down the mountain is breathtaking. 12 miles away, Shrewsbury is full of black and white buildings with the castle and houses dating back to Tudor times. Ludlow has a market several days a week. The surrounding area of Church Stretton has many little villages, with churches and pubs. Acton Burnell, 4 miles away has a ruined castle, and was the site of the first parliament. The RAF Museum (free) is at Cosford. Ironbridge, birthplace of the industrial revolution, with many museums, is 15 miles away. Stokesay fortified manorhouse is two miles away. Tucked away off the A49. Little Stretton has one of the few thatched churches, whilst Saint Lawrence church in the town is large and welcoming. Catholic and Methodist churches - all within walking distance. On a stroll through town, take time to look up each little alleyway or street and you will see a 'picture postcard view' of the hills, if you are not too busy looking in the shops!

Church Stretton

The Church Stretton Arts festival is last week of 26th July to 9th August with many musicians, talks and plays and an art exhibition. There are 50 or so hobby clubs in Church Stretton and you would be welcome to visit some of them. Shuttle buses operate on to The Mynd and Much Wenlock and villages. Train is 15min walk away.

Ludlow and Shrewsbury both have live theatre and cinemas. There is a golf club on the hill, bowls, croquet and tennis courts are available in the centre of Church Stretton. There is also a leisure centre and a swimming pool. The library has internet access. The tourist office, ready to help you with sightseeing, is in the library. There is the MTB (mountain bikes) Outdoor Centre at Marshbrook (1 mile away) where cycles can be hired. (We have a lock up for cycles). There are many activities for visitors in the Mayfair Centre in the middle of the town, internet access, complementary therapists, (massages etc.) There are 4 group walks a week with a free local guide, craft groups, a Country Market on Thursday mornings and Friday mornings in Mayfair and much much more, just waiting for you to pop in. Church Stretton has many tea/coffee shops, several restaurants, three pubs, a large antique shop (3 floors) and gift shops, fruit and veg shop, two butchers, clothes shops, as well as the usual charity shops. A medium size supermarket is in the centre, well stocked as well as a mini Martin The Spar. Church Stretton is lovely to stroll around because everything is central.

"Spacious, superb accommodation, welcoming unobtrusive hosts."

Accommodation was truly spacious. Lounge/diner much larger than our at home. Ceilings slope towards windows (taller people need to be wary) but not a problem. Kitchen was very well equipped. Décor was nice and bed was very comfortable The view was amazing. We were fortunate to be there Bonfire night weekend and witnessed a wonderful display of fireworks from the apartment window and balcony. It went on for ages and was as good as any expensive ones we have been to .
Hosts were very welcoming but not intrusive. Lovely friendly, informative People. Town was lovely, the Chinese take away was very cheap and served huge portions.
Drove up to Long Mynd and watched a display of gliders and birds looping the loop. Views were spectacular.
Unfortunately only spent two nights there. The drive to the property is very steep and we would not negotiate it in snowy weather, it would be a matter of walking. An overall very pleasant experience, accommodation, host, and location.
