Grove Bank Cottage description

Holiday home
Grove Bank Cottage is a brick-built cottage which adjoins the owner's home and is just over a mile away from the centre of the small market town of Craven Arms, sleeping two people. This single-storey cottage has a king-size double bedroom with an en-suite shower room and an open plan living area with a kitchen, dining area and a sitting area with a multi-fuel stove. Outside there is off road parking for two cars and an enclosed front lawned garden with a patio, furniture and a barbecue. Grove Bank Cottage is a wonderful base for your self-catering holiday.

The town of Craven Arms is located between the medieval town of Ludlow and Church Stretton. The historic towns of Bishops Castle, Ludlow and Shrewsbury are a short drive away, and offer magnificent castles, riverside walks, shops, pubs, restaurants, theatres and a variety of festivals.

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.

The owner was very welcoming and helpful. The cottage provided everything you could possibly need and a lot of care had gone into making our stay enjoyable. It is also well located for walking, sightseeing and the pub!

Marvellous hosts and an immaculate cottage in such a wonderful location, fabulous countryside. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage and the location too!

We booked at short notice and were pleasantly surprised by what we found. The property was compact but comfortable and clean, with a large king size bed and a well laid out shower room. We found our hosts friendly helpful and appreciated the welcome pack. There is some noise from the A49 as mentioned, but it is not obtrusive inside the house, so not to us at least, a serious issue. The Cottage is well sited for the local countryside but also the many local English Heritage and National Trust sites. It is also well sited for the Severn Valley and Welshpool steam railways. We enjoyed our week and would recommend the property for a couple seeking a pleasant bolt hole away.

My husband and I found this cottage to be very comfortable, cosy and set in a convenient location for touring the area. The owners of the cottage had thought of everything including an outside shelf, protected by a roof to put your walking boots on at the end of the day. This cottage had a very spacious shower which we loved too. We would definitely stay here again.
