Kite's Nest Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Kite's Nest is one of three barn conversion cottages on a 200 acre farm in the village of Eaton-under-Heywood near to Church Stretton in Shropshire. With one king size double bedroom and an ensuite bathroom on the mezzanine floor this cottage sleeps two people. The rest of the accommodation is made up of an open plan living area with a fitted kitchen, a dining area and a sitting room. Outside the cottage is off road parking for 2 cars, bike storage, a private patio with furniture plus a shared lawned garden with a brick built BBQ. There is also a 10 acre natural garden with ponds and access to 100 acres of woodland on the slopes of Wenlock Edge. Livery for guests horses are by arrangement with the owner. With so much to see and do all year round, Kite's Nest is a fabulous holiday cottage in the heart of Shropshire.

The rural village of Eaton-under-Heywood lies under both the famous Wenlock Edge and the woods that run along it, and is surrounded by scenic countryside. From the village, the Jacob's Ladder path leads straight up the Edge, providing lovely walks. Nearby is the market town of Church Stretton, which lies in the heart of south Shropshire. It is set amid striking scenery and has often been described as "Little Switzerland". The town is the main centre for Shropshire's hill country and home to a variety of tearooms, pubs and specialist shops. Other local attractions include walks on the Long Mynd, the Acton Scott Working Farm as seen on TV, and Stokesay Castle. The historic towns of Shrewsbury, Ludlow, the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, Much Wenlock and Bishops Castle are only a short journey away.

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.

Location excellent to visit the area. Great property to take the dog did not need to worry about muddy paws due to the tile flooring. Peaceful location. Property not overlooked by the owners but they are close enough if there was a problem. Friendly but not intrusive. Will visit again and would recommend.

I had booked all three cottages for my family and it was great that we could come together or have our own bolt holes when needed.
Mrs Jelley
July 2013
Kite's Nest was a dear little cottage, we enjoyed seeing all the animals, especially the rescued owls. My husband wanted to bring Percy the Peacock home, but of course, we couldn't let him. We loved Bluebell the dear little tabby cat. Would recommend this holiday to anybody who wants peace and quiet with animals. Shropshire is a beautiful county.

A beautiful property that far exceeded our expectations. A visit to this property would be great for astronomers: there are genuine dark skies at night at the property and I saw the Milky Way for only the third time in my life!
Mrs Barrow

Rural location, great centre for the beautiful Shropshire countryside. Very peaceful in the evenings but plenty of activity to watch during the day - chickens, peacocks, horses, owls - lovely.
Mrs Harwood
October 2012
We could see animals and birds from the windows in the huge wild garden that we could walk around at the farm. The area was beautiful. The owner was very helpful.
Mr Sanders

Mrs Clarke

This property is in the middle of a working farm and stables. It really is back to nature! The owners are very friendly and informative. There is good walking to be had from this property. The best cottage we have ever visited and we will certainly be going back there again.

Nothing was to much trouble for the owners, they gave us lots of tips for places to visit and wonderful eggs for breakfast. We will be back next year without a doubt. A wonderful place for a holiday, would highly recommend it - cosy for an autumn/winter break, lovely deep bath, great after a long walk. Thank you.

Quiet location, very central for tourist attractions and Shropshire countryside, not too far to the Elan Valley and Lake Vyrnwy. Friendly owners and attractive location on Wenlock Edge.
Mrs Wright
July 2011
The cottage was in the countryside, but outside the cottage was a livery stable and a collection of unusual birds and animals, which you could visit, so there was always plenty of activity.
Mrs Singleton
September 2010
Lovely peaceful location, conversion done to a high standard. Lovely walks from the farm up onto Wenlock edge. Highly recommended for a quiet holiday.
December 2012
Kite's Nest is a cosy, well equipped cottage. We found it to be very comfortable and in a lovely setting on the farm with peacocks, chickens and ducks visiting us daily. The cottage is in a very quiet rural location with walks available from the door step. The only downside for us was the very narrow roads from Church Stretton to the accommodation which we found a little too narrow for our liking. A beautiful area though and a really lovely little cottage.
September 2013
We had a wonderful time, the cottage was delightful and we really enjoyed seeing the various animals and birds. Woolfie (our cat) would have loved to bring home Percy the Peacock. We were very lucky with the weather and Shropshire is a beautiful county. I would recommend this cottage to anybody that enjoys country life.
August 2014
A most picturesque location and the livestock add greatly to the enjoyment of our stay. The accommodation is compact but met all our requirements and we and our dogs were made to feel so welcome. Thoroughly recommend!
August 2012
We stayed at this accommodation for a week recently. We found the 'cottage' to be well equipped and comfortably furnished. We enjoyed seeing the animals from the farm wandering around and had frequent visits from the chickens and cat. The accommodation is set in a rural area and is incredibly peaceful. The location of the cottage near Church Stretton is good and we found access easy to Ludlow, Shrewsbury, Much Wenlock and Ironbridge with some stunning walks located closeby. The only downside for us was that the road to the accommodation is very narrow with only a few passing points and this did put us off venturing out in the evening for meals. Overall though a very pleasant accommodation that was clean and comfortable and in a delightful setting.
December 2011
Perfect cottage in a rural location, friendly owner. Location in the middle of nowhere, perfect. Cottage very well appointed, everything to hand, no problems apart from flies. Suppose you get this in the country!
December 2011
Arrived when it was dark,in the morning such joy at the lovely surroundings, owners so helpful and caring ,nothing was to much trouble ,we are going back next year ,Church Stretton had everything you needed and more.A real must is to go and see the Red Kite feeding station at Rhayader,Severn Valley Steam Railway,would recommend going Kidderminster to Bridgenorth as Bridgenorth is such a nice town to spend a few hours in ,so much in the area ,might take us a couple of years of staying at Kites Nest ,something to look forward to ,will recommend to family and friends .
October 2011
Excellent property with all you could require. Very quiet rural location surrounded by horse paddocks. Owners in nearby house and very friendly. Pets and farm animals in a nearby area including rescued owl. Have free range of the owners extensive grounds and can even visit and feed their pig.
