IMPORTANT NOTE RE COVID-19

Orchard Cottage is now open following the easing of government Covid restrictions. For your peace of mind, bookings can be transferred to a later date if restrictions are re-imposed which result in the cottage being closed on your booked dates.

--------------------------------------------

Orchard Cottage is a delightful, comfortable and tastefully furnished detached cottage, located in the hamlet of Strefford, which lies in the heart of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). It offers privacy, an ideal central location, homely environment and beautiful secluded gardens which look out on Wenlock Edge. There are lovely walks from the cottage and a wide variety of pubs and restaurants in the surrounding neighbourhood offering excellent food and friendly hospitality. The rural surroundings are ideal for both walkers and cyclists.

There are 2 bedrooms (one twin & one double) sleeping a maximum of four people. There is a comfortable and homely lounge with a wood burning stove, a fully equipped kitchen/dining area and a patio overlooking delightful private gardens. Free wi-fi is also provided. Off road and secluded parking for up to two cars

Assistance dogs are always welcome but, following refurbishment of the cottage, we no longer accept pets. Children of five years and over are also welcome! (Steep stairs and lack of space for a cot make the property unsuitable for small children).

Just 10 minutes from Church Stretton, 15 minutes to Ludlow and 30 minutes to Shrewsbury, most of Shropshire's popular and respected tourist attractions and places of historical interest are all within easy reach. A trip to either North or South Wales can be undertaken in less than 2 hours and the beautiful hills and lakes of mid Wales are a short drive away.

Orchard Cottage is maintained to 4 star standards and quality assessed by Visit England.
