We stayed in this cottage for one week & loved it - it has great character. Although it is old, it nonetheless is very spacious with a large living room with a dining table, kitchen complete with breakfast area & 3 large bedrooms, one with en-suite facilities. It is situated in a lovely area with great views to the hills. Entry on arrival was by prior arrangement with the owners who met us & were very helpful. There is a large 'boot room' adjoining the kitchen so is perfect for walkers. It is ideally placed for walking the hills around Church Stretton, with the Long Mynd virtually at the back door. There is off-road parking for 2 cars.
The main town is only 5 minutes walk away where there are shops, restaurants & pubs etc.
Church Stretton itself is also ideally located for visiting Ludlow or Shrewbury (both can be reached by train in about 15 - 20 mins), Much Wenlock (about 20 mins by car) & Ironbridge (about 30 mins by car). We visited all of these & they are definitely worth making time to see if you can.
We would certainly stay at East Cottage again.
