The Dairy is a tastefully converted 18th C barn halfway between Ludlow and Church Stretton. Surrounded by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with views up to 20 miles along Wenlock Edge, Clee Hill and towards Ludlow, our 18th C stone and wood framed barn is a peaceful countryside haven yet only a mile from the nearest town. The bedroom has a double bed and a cot is also available at no extra charge.

Near to the Spa town of Church Stretton, (known as Little Switzerland) and Ludlow (regarded by many as the finest Medieval town in Britain) The Dairy is ideally situated for touring Shropshire and the Welsh Marches border area with its wealth of ancient castles and churches.

Rated 4 Stars by Visit Britain, it features underfloor heating, woollen carpeted bedrooms and natural slate floors combined with original oak beams and high ceilings for that authentic country atmosphere.

Guests love our warm welcome of home made cakes, beverages with fresh milk and fresh fruit and flowers topped off with a bottle of good wine for longer stayers. A gourmet meal delivered by our neighbouring award winning chef can await your arrival and tempt your palate on any other day of your stay with us. Dining out is one of the prime attractions of this part of South Shropshire with restaurants from Michelin star winners to carveries and quaint English tea shops. A good range of takeaways a supermarket, shops, bank and petrol stations are found in Craven Arms just one mile away.

Ironbridge World Heritage site with the world's first iron bridge and ten museums is a 30 minute drive away and our visitors are eligible to use our free passes to any of the museums during their stay. The BBCtv Victorian Farm at Acton Scott is within easy reach. The modern Olympics originated in the picturesque small town of Much Wenlock where an annual Olympiad is still held each summer. The award winning Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre and renowned Stokesay Castle are within easy walking distance from The Dairy.

Relax in our pretty cottage garden with its two patios, Coalbrookdale furniture and barbecue and enjoy wonderful walks or cycle rides from right outside the gates. Once you have stayed at Highgrove you will surely want to return soon as so many of our visitors do.

The Heart of England/Peak District

The unsurpassable 12th Century fortified manor house of Stokesay Castle is close by and Craven Arms, one mile away is home to South Shropshire's award winning Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre and the Land of Lost Content Museum as well as providing shops, post office and a main line rail station on the Manchester - Cardiff route.

BBC TV's Victorian Farm location is just a few miles to the north and our free entry destination, Ironbridge Gorge with its' ten museums is eastwards along Wenlock Edge.

Much Wenlock, a scenic country drive away, was recently named by Sunday Times and Savills Estate Agents, as one of the best British villages to live in. Much Wenlock is the birthplace of William Penny Brookes, recognised as the founding father of the modern Olympic Games. The Wenlock Olympian Games are still held in July each year and the joint Mascot of the 2012 London Olympic Games has been named Wenlock.

Right outside the gate to Highgrove and into Long Lane, the old Turnpike road is now a quiet byway and turning in either direction leads to wonderful walks or cycle rides up to Wart Hill and beyond or down to the River Onny meadows. Or perhaps bring your horse with you and board it out at the neighbouring Highgrove House stables?

A twenty five minute stroll towards the Long Mynd brings visitors to Wistanstow, famous for The Plough Inn and Wood's brewery, home of the prize winning Shropshire Lad and many other real ales. Talking of which, A.E.Housman's inspiration for his poem A Shropshire Lad, the villages around Clun - "the quietest under the sun" - are westwards just over Hopesay Hill and still sleepy timeless places for peaceful contemplation.

Ludlow

Within a few minutes drive are Cardingmill Valley and Church Stretton, known as Little Switzerland and Ludlow, reputed by many to be the finest medieval town in England. Famed nowadays for its Michelin starred restaurants it still holds its ancient street markets several days a week and annual culture and food festivals centred around its magnificent lofty castle. There is however, no necessity to travel far for good food as pubs and restaurants serving a range of mainly locally sourced foods are within easy reach . A Rare Breeds Society butcher, a rarity in itself, is based in Craven Arms. Ancient churches abound in idyllic towns and villages as well as modern, lively places of worship in local communities. Ironbridge's World Heritage sites are a half hour drive away close to Telford, with its shopping malls and large town attractions. North and South along the A49 are the county towns of Shrewsbury and Hereford respectively. Craven Arms itself is known as the gateway to the Marches, as this Welsh border country has been referred to over the centuries, and many villages have Welsh names although nowadays firmly in England.

We warmly invite you to come and sample the hospitality and friendliness of this relatively undiscovered, but stunningly beautiful part of Britain, and to stay with us at Highgrove whatever your interests and at any season of the year - this is truly an all-year-round holiday place.

"A well placed little gem with attentive owner on site."

Shropshire is a county with attractive scenery, small market towns and an abundance of historic sites and this small self-contained cottage style property is an ideal base from which to explore the ar… More

Another contented customer. Thanks for kind words. TV's due to be replaced this month with LED flat screen after a few years of good service. Walk to Wood's brewery pub lovely in daylight and long summer evenings. Nothing better than a good glass of 'Shropshire Lad' at the end of it!
