A wonderful one bedroom, pet friendly cottage with fabulous views from every window

Holly Cottage is an early 19th Century old drover's cottage nestling in the beautiful rolling countryside of the South Shropshire Hills, 3 miles from the Herefordshire border, with Ludlow just 7.5 miles away and bordering the Welsh Marches. West facing panoramic views mean you can watch the stunning sunsets here, from the comfort of the sofa or the hillside garden, whilst you enjoy a cocktail, glass of wine, local ciders and perries or barbecue with outstanding local produce.

Holly Cottage is ideal for dog owners, walkers and cyclists, for full weeks, short and mid- week breaks, special weekends or romantic breaks, for dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs, those seeking inspiration or R and R, or simply people wanting a tranquil holiday in a truly rural location. There are plenty of opportunities for birdwatching and moments with nature. Watch the buzzards and red kite, wood peckers and swallows in the tuneful garden or listen to sheep bleeting as you sit in the side garden by our ancient yew tree. Night skies are incredibly dark so simply wonderful for star gazing from garden or bedroom or a trip to the nearby Space Guard Centre observatory in Knighton. Golf and horse-riding also close by. A tranquil location - not to be missed.

The Shropshire region

Rolling South Shropshire hills and valleys surround Holly Cottage which has panoramic views cross the Clun valley. Well-marked footpaths leading to the Shropshire Way trails are just minutes away by foot in either direction and by car the vibrant market towns of Ludlow, Clun, and Bishops Castle are all within 30 mins. National Cycle Route NCN 44 is a mere stone's throw away and covers 6 castles in one day!

Those wishing to explore the Long Mynd (approx. 20 mins drive), Mortimer Country or Wenlock Edge haven't far to go either. An award winning tea-shop is within a ten minute drive from Holly Cottage walkable from the door and which does a very yummy fidget pie. If you want to take the bus, the new Castle Connect service bus no. 783 from Shropshire Hills Shuttles goes from Ludlow to Bishops Castle every weekend and Bank Holiday Monday from 4th May to 29th September. It's a Hail and Ride service so even if not at the nearest stop (outside the Lion Pub in Leintwardine), hail the shuttle to stop and it probably will!

After a long day at the races, gliding, attending local food, agricultural, heritage, literary or beer festivals or after an exhausting day in the saddle or on foot, if you feel like spoiling yourself this is a perfect getaway doing as much or as little as you wish.

Craven Arms

South Shropshire Hills AONB, Craven Arms is approximately 15 minutes by car for all neccessary amenities, grocery shopping and the essential gateway to the hills starting point, the Discovery Centre. Approximately half way between Church Stretton and the lovely market town of Ludlow, Holly Cottage is a very tranquil location, on the crossroads of two single track roads. The cottage faces West so the sunsets are stunning from both garden, bedroom or back garden. Farms surround the property, a mixture of arable, sheep and cattle. Thesleepy village of Clungunford lies approximately 1 mile downhill from the cottage, with its parochial village entertainments in the parish hall and winter Flicks in the Sticks cinema. Leintwardine, a mere 4 miles away, over the border into Herefordshire sports several great pubs, fishing and the Shuttlebus service for your summer walking. Not to be missed are the annual Ludlow Food Festival and the Wenlock Poetry Festival. Events in the surrounding villages take place all year. Acton Scott Working Farm are a short car ride or pedal away, just off the A49 and Wenlock Edge and the Stiperstones all within easy driving distance. The Welsh Marches area around Clungunford and Ludlow is known for its beauty and produce. For food lovers the local food is celebrated all year. The Ludlow Farmers Market and the Ludlow Food Centre are well worth a visit and just a short drive. A little further afield Ironbridge Gorge Musuem and the Severn Valley preserved Railway are well worth a trip, whilst on the doorstep in the centre of Craven Arms the Museum of Lost Content will take you back in time - rural nostalgia.
