Location description from owner

The England region

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.

“Fantastic Views”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2016

A lovely welcome from Maureen and Peter. Milk ; Tea ; Coffee and lovely home baked fruit cake much appreciated. Yes a very steep climb to the property but wow worth it for the fantastic views of Church Stretton and the Mynd hills. Apartment is totally private and extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Love the attention to detail with all the local information leaflets and maps. Especially found the local restaurants and takeaway menus useful. Only ate out once in our three days as such glorious weather we wanted to make the most of the wonderful setting and views from the quiet and private balcony. I will miss it. Thank You for the thoughtful gift when we left of home made marmalade and the lovely picture of Redwood's balcony and views - we plan to frame this as it holds such lovely memories of a special three days. Definitely recommend this property has everything you need with a great location and lovely hosts. We will definitely return and recommend to others.

Thank you ever so much for giving Redwood and me such a glowing review. This was so much appreciated. You were the perfect guests. Best wishes to you both. Maureen

“Spacious, superb accommodation, welcoming unobtrusive hosts.”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2013

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.

“Wonderful”

Well-appointed holiday flat with fine views of the Long Mynd and pleasant, helpful owners. Highly recommended!

“Excellent”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2012

A very warm welcome and everything I could have wished for in terms of comfort and amenities. There was 'space' for relaxation, but help and advice if needed. The gardens, verandah and views were lovely. I enjoyed my stay at Redwood Heights immensley and have booked for next year.
