Description

The Old Cottage at Brookrow is a beautifully restored, "black and white" oak framed cottage bursting with period features and antiques but incorporating all the modern comforts for two or three people. This cottage is well over 300 years old and retains some wonderful quirks that go with it's age and character including a few low beams, sloping bedroom floors, a steep staircase and the downstairs bathroom - these points may not suit everyone, especially young children or adults with limited mobility!

Brookrow is a hamlet which nestles in the South Shropshire hills on the borders of Herefordshire and Worcestershire and is almost equidistant from Ludlow, Cleobury Mortimer, and Tenbury Wells. Therefore, it is ideally suited for people seeking a tranquil location yet within easy reach of a wide range of attractions.

The Old Cottage is tastefully decorated throughout and has fitted carpets and comprises: an inglenook sitting room with dining area; kitchen;

Therefore, it is ideally suited for people seeking a tranquil location yet within easy reach of a wide range of attractions.

The Old Cottage is tastefully decorated throughout and has fitted carpets and comprises: an inglenook sitting room with dining area; kitchen; utility area; a snug with WiFi and a downstairs shower room. Upstairs there is a large landing, a double bedroom and a single bedroom.

Downstairs
The sitting room has original oak beams, plaster and lathe panelled walls in old oak surrounds and two original cast iron windows, together with a wood burning stove in a large stone inglenook and it is comfortably furnished with two old american rocking chairs, a 2 seater sofa, an antique dining table with 4 chairs, TV and DVD, plus a well stocked bookcase with a small selection of CDs and DVDs. The kitchen also has oak beams with original plaster panels and ample modern cupboards and work surfaces, a fridge with freezer compartment, a ceramic topped electric cooker plus the usual pots, pans, crockery and cutlery etc. The adjoining utility area houses a microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and new central heating boiler.

Although our own house is "attached" to The Old Cottage we do not share any facilities and have a completely separate entrance, parking area and central heating. We are close enough to offer any help and advice but assume that guests will wish to enjoy their privacy in this wonderfully tranquil, rural location.

NB The only bathroom is downstairs and will not suit young children or people with limited mobility.

Location description from owner

The England region

Ludlow

The Old Cottage at Brookrow is ideally situated for exploring the Shropshire Hills and surrounding countryside of Herefordshire, Worcestershire and the Welsh Marches. This is great walking country but there are also many attractions for the less energetic: historic Ludlow justly famed for its mediaeval streets, rich architectural heritage, Norman castle and the Assembly Rooms providing live entertainment, films and exhibitions; Leominster a charming market town and home to many antique shops; several National Trust properties and wonderful gardens, the open air museum of Ironbridge, RAF museum at Cosford and the cathedral city of Hereford are all within an hours drive. There is a good range of informative leaflets and guides in the cottage to help you plan your holiday.

“Charming, cosy and welcoming "black and white" oak framed cottage”

Reviewed 22 Apr 2014

Upon arriving my partner and myself knew we were in for a treat at this 300 year old cottage. From opening the gate to get the car parked we were met firstly by the owners (Judi and Rob) who were both very welcoming with excellent local insight to share. On the way to the front door of the cottage, we were met with the sights and smells of a beautiful garden and very pleased when we found we could sit out in the evening sun with a nice drink. The cottage itself had a lovely warm atmosphere to it, which can be quite rare in older cottages. This may be in no small part helped by the inscription of love on the wall, dated 1682. It was beautifully decorated keeping the traditional atmosphere and also had the benefits of modern conveniences such as lots of living and storage space (again rare in older cottages), a sky light and a fantastic kitchen to inspire delicious creativity. It was possible use Wi-Fi from one room, the library/snug but that was easily good enough for a Skype with my parents. The only item it perhaps lacked was a bath to relax in but the shower was good. The owners were always helpful and accommodating, offering recommendations such as an excellent nearby pub in Hope Bagot and Ludlow Food Centre which included a café with many treats... I'd recommend a stay here to anyone wishing for the perfect base from which to launch into Shropshire adventures, walking across countryside via characterful villages and cycling the charming lanes. Nearby amenities include a well stocked local shop and pub. It's less than 9 miles to Ludlow and that has everything you could ever really want!
