The Old Dairy, as its name suggests, was originally built as part of a dairy house. It has been sympathetically restored to offer accommodation for 4 people, retaining much of its original character through features such as exposed beams and the original cattle stall, which now partitions the lounge from the dining room. The accommodation is arranged across one level and the property has a rear patio, from which to enjoy a spot of outdoor-dining. Visitors also get shared use of a games room, which includes a snooker table and a netted trampoline. There is plenty of parking and the local amenities are merely a stroll away.

The Shropshire region

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.

Stapleton

Church Stretton's glorious setting in a narrow valley earned it the name 'Little Switzerland' from the Victorians who tried to establish it as a spa. It has some of the most dramatic and spectacular hills in the British Isles; Long Mynd guards the West and the escarpment of Wenlock Edge lies to the East. Caer Caradoc, formed by volcanic ash and lava over 560 million years ago, once had an Iron Age hill-fort on its summit. The geology of the area is intriguing and has earned the hills acclaim as a Site of Special Scientific Interest as well as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Ragleth Hill allows you to take in stunning 360 degree views, taking in the Long Mynd, Caer Caradoc, the Lawley, Wenlock Edge and the Clee Hills. Church Stretton also draws visitors for its famous 18-hole golf course, which claims to be the highest in England.
