Jessamine Cottage description

Holiday home
With 2 bedrooms, Jessamine Cottage offers idyllic accommodation for groups of up to 4 people. Exposed beams, a wood-burning stove and a four-poster bed provide the ideal ambience for that 'getting away from it all' experience at any time of year. For the summer months, the property has its own rear garden, from which you can enjoy a light bite and a glass of wine on a warm evening. There is off-road parking available for up to 2 cars, although the local shop and excellent local pub are less than 3 minutes' walk away.

It has two pubs and a thatched church. Other amenities, such as shops, pubs, banks and teashops, are just up the road in Church Stretton. Little Stretton is the starting point for a popular ramble up the beautiful and rugged Ashes Hollow, which takes you to the top of the Long Mynd. From the top of the Mynd, which is covered in purple heather in the summer, walkers can descend to the National Trust shop in Cardingmill Valley before returning via Church Stretton. Across the main valley, a stiff climb to the marker post on Ragleth Hill will lead you to a lovely walk along its high ridge and to a more gradual descent into Church Stretton. Little Stretton is also within easy reach of other attractions in Shropshire, such as historic Shrewsbury, the market-tow of Ludlow and the ancient spectacle of Stokesay Castle.

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.

Lovely cottage, and the perfect location for us as we walk.

A really lovely cottage with everything we could possibly need. It was in a quiet location in the village and was very convenient for lots of places to visit in the area. We enjoyed our stay very much and the weather was amazing - sunny and warm every day.

Had a great week at Jessamine Cottage. It was an ideal location with great walks from the cottage and two lovely dog friendly pubs, one only 10 paces across the road. Ironbridge and Ludlow are a must to visit. Everything in the cottage is well presented and very comfortable. The small garden is lovely for sitting on an evening. A great part of Shropshire, a place we would definitely return.

A fantastic cottage in a perfect location. It was 10 steps from one of the friendliest pubs I've ever been in. At least 10 good walks from the cottage door.

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful area. It was close to local pubs and fabulous walks from the front door. There were lovely extra touches from the owner. Definitely a place to return to.

We had a fantastic holiday at Jessamine cottage, it was warm, welcoming and we felt so at home. It was ideally located in the village of Little Stretton, with excellent walking on the doorstep. Two lovely cosy pubs, one a minutes walk away and the other 4 minutes away, both accept dogs. We will definitely return.

The cottage was set in a very picturesque valley surrounded by sheepfields. Although the village is small, there were two very good pubs that did great food.
Miss Kaye

Jessamine is real gem of a cottage. Extra little touches and attention to detail by the owner really make it a special cottage in a beautiful and relatively undiscovered part of the country. Two excellent pubs very close by serving delicious meals and great local beers. (One of the pubs is only a 40 second walk away!!) We really enjoyed our stay and had some lovely walks in the surrounding countryside. The locals are very friendly and welcoming. We will certainly return.

The Cottage was enchanting, just how you would imagine a country cottage to be. The homely touches and provisions provided were lovely. The owner had thought of everything. We had a lovely holiday there.
Mrs Reynolds

Cottage was everything we could wish for. Had a great log burner with plenty of logs included, as was Wifi which was a real bonus. Well situated for walking and we had reasonable weather so got out every day. Couldn't fault anything, a truly special weekend, thank you.

Lovely cosy cottage, thoughtfully furnished with good attention to detail. The welcome hamper was a super idea! The location was ideal for walking and sightseeing with many attractions within just a few miles of the village with its mix of Tudor, Victorian and Medieval architecture. We visited Ludlow, Wenlock and Bridgnorth.

The owner was really helpful and welcoming. The wonderful welcome pack was a very nice surprise. All equipment was really high standard. The overall condition of the property is worthy of a higher star rating in our opinion. This is an amazing cottage and we would recommend it to anyone wanting a holiday in the area, will definitely be going back when we can. Can't thank the owner of this place enough for all the little touches that made the place and the holiday so special.
Mrs Davison

The cottage was lovely and was spotless. The chairs in the lounge were really comfortable and it was easy to relax. There was a good selection of books and dvd's. It was good to be able to do walks from the cottage. We are hoping to go again in the summer.

September 2011
The cottage was great with everything we needed. Garden was great as the weather was fab. Local walks were ideal. Town close enough to walk, plenty of shops to browse round. All in all we had a tremendous week we would definately return.
March 2014
The cottage is very well appointed, with a log burner for chilly evenings. The welcome pack was a bonus, as was the home made flapjack! There is loads of information in the cottage including walks from the village itself, as well as those locally. There is lots to see without driving far, such as Ludlow, Shrewsbury, Long Mynd, Much Wenlock and Bridgenorth. The two pubs in the village are good, with the Green Dragon serving very reasonably priced and excellent bar food. The conservatory porch was lovely on sunny afternoons, when it was still a bit chilly outside. Would definitely go back.
September 2014
This two bedroom cottage is good enough to live in full time. Well equiped with dishwasher and washing machine and sky tv. Dog very friendly with secure front garden where you park car; there are gates. Main bedroom has double bed and second has adult bunk beds so if two couples go you will have to toss. There is I think a sofa bed in lounge. There is a separate dining room, a real plus. Best of all 40 yards away is Raglan Arms on of two pubs in village. But as round corner not noisy and it is a wonderful gastro pub. The cottage is a touch expensive but if you book you will see why. Area wonderfull with good walking and Ludlow nearby.
Mr Loasby

Best cottage we have ever stayed in. Superb location.
December 2009
This place deserves a 5 star rating in our opinion. The cottage is wonderfully clean and well equipped and the owner provided so many extras that made the holiday so enjoyable and stress free. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise and the information pack covered all eventualities and contained much more than we had expected. All equipment had instructions which made life much easier and staying there was relaxing,the holiday was a REAL holiday with no stress and hassle. The owner was so welcoming and nothing was to much trouble. We highly recommend this fabulous cottage and all the beautiful countryside around it, the dogs loved all the walks and Church Stretton was a wonderful town to visit, full of character and interesting shops. This spot is ideal for exploring the area as it is central and in easy reach of Ludlow, Bridgenorth, Ironbridge and Shrewsbury, all worth a visit.
