    About this Holiday Cottage

    Nestling at the base of Long Mynd, Shepherds Cottage offers traditional-style accommodation for up to 4 people. Exposed beams harken back to the cottage's original character and there are truly breathtaking views of the local countryside to be had from its windows. The garden is secluded and offers the perfect opportunities for barbeques and outdoor-dining. Local shops and the local pub are a mere 10-minute walk from Shepherds Cottage, and its detached status ensures that you can enjoy privacy or the bustle of a small town whenever you feel like it. The cottage is situated next to a bridle path that leads to the Carding Mill Valley and there are horse-riding opportunities available nearby, as well as mountain-biking and walking.

    Inside

    Two bedrooms: 1 x double with exposed beams, 1 x single (with additional folding bed on request). Compact bathroom with bath, basin and WC. Kitchen with small pantry and breakfast bar. Cosy sitting room and dining area with exposed beams.

    Around and About

    Due to the alpine-like hills and valleys which surround the village, Church Stretton has been christened ‘Little Switzerland' and retains the feel of a spa town to this day, the natural springs providing Stretton mineral water. Nestling below the rugged beauty of Long Mynd, Church Stretton is the first town in Shropshire to achieve the ‘Walkers Welcome' status, also holding its own Walking Festival in June. Nearby, the National Trust operates a shuttle-bus service from the local railway station, offering the beauty of the panorama from the top of Long Mynd without the exertion! The hills are literally alive with the sound of music each year at the Church Stretton and South Shropshire Arts Festival which attracts musicians and artists from across the country.

    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.
