Stone House description

Holiday home
Stone House is a wonderful, black and white, semi-detached timbered cottage, set beside the owners' farmhouse in the village of Caynham in South Shropshire. The cottage can sleep four people in two bedrooms and a family bathroom on the ground floor. There is an open plan living space with a kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area with a woodburning stove set into an inglenook fireplace. Outside, there is a garden with a patio and furniture and there is off road parking for two cars. Stone House is the perfect base for escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and exploring this glorious region.

In the heart of the beautiful Shropshire countryside, amidst the renowned walking and cycling region, is the historic village of Caynham. With evidence of early dwelling on the site, in the form of the outstanding landmark, Caynham Camp, visitors can see this huge Bronze Age/Iron Age earthwork which covers a site of eight acres at the summit, from which wonderful views can be enjoyed. Three miles away is Ludlow where slightly more recent building work can be seen in the intact medieval street patterns of the town. Renowned for several Michelin-starred restaurants, as well as numerous tea-shops, pubs and inns, Ludlow is a great destination for gourmets and food enthusiasts whilst nearby, visitors can enjoy such diverse activities as Ironbridge Gorge, Severn Valley Railway, Berrington Hall and Cardingmill Valley.

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.

We both enjoyed our first stay at this cottage and will hope to return in the future. It was an ideal base from which to explore Ludlow, and the surrounding area. Highly recommend.

The welcoming arrival was faultless. The owners were very friendly and approachable if needed and the property has been finished to a high standard.

This is a very comfortable and well equipped cottage in a rural situation. The cottage is ideally placed to explore the many 'attractions' in the area.

We had a lovely holiday staying in this delightful cottage in an ideal area for touring and walking. The cottage is extremely well equipped and has many books, leaflets and maps about Shropshire and Herefordshire. The owners who live next door were extremely kind and helpful and we can thoroughly recommend this holiday cottage to future guests.

We had a great week at Stone House, it was exactly what we were looking for. It was refurbished to a very high standard but still had loads of character. Ludlow a lovely town to visit with lots to do to keep the kids busy!

The cottage has been well and sympathetically renovated. It was comfortable and homely and the owners were available but not intrusive.

The welcome from the owners was lovely and the kitchen was exceptionally well equipped for holiday accommodation. The owners - a farming family who live in the main house - were friendly and helpful but not intrusive. The cottage has been renovated to a very high standard, and was excellent value for money. The cottage was a great base from which to visit Ludlow and other interesting places, and then come back and relax. We would love to go again. Highly recommended.

The cottage had the comforts of a new modern property with the charm and look of the original building. The setting was a rural quiet farm but with owners that welcome you into their property and made our stay a very enjoyable one.

It was set in beautiful Shropshire countryside and the hosts were very welcoming. The house is very cosy and well kitted out. They were very accommodating with our two small children with a high chair cot and books, games etc. Would certainly recommend.

This is a lovely cottage which was recently renovated to a very high standard. There are many pretty villages and towns to visit along with spectacular scenery and walks. The owners are friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We would highly recommend this cottage.

The high standard of the cottage as a whole, the well equipped kitchen, the wood burner, the shower, friendliness of our host, Ludlow and surrounding countryside. The radiators were working which was important as it was pretty cold on a couple of days! We all enjoyed staying at Stone House farm immensely and would love to come back at some time in the future.

Having decided to spend New Year in the Ludlow area (good for food and walking) we booked the cottage for its good website presentation and its reasonable rates. Our arrival to a warm cottage (courtesy of a great log burner) and christmas cake and wine was met with pleasure. We found the cottage lived up to expectations, especially the open plan groundfloor and the attention to detail was much appreciated, particularly in the well equipped kitchen. We loved the birdlife attracted by the feeder (haven't seen a nuthatch for years) and the oak tree gathered a huge flock of wood pigeons, squirrels and pheasants, all feeding together. The owners' communication was first class (directions etc) and they have found a good balance between friendliness & respecting a holiday maker`s need for privacy (having said that, I really enjoyed the long chats with the owner on his way back from feeding the cattle.) The area caters not only to walkers and foodies, but also to book-lovers who would enjoy spending an hour or two at Aardvark Books, Brampton Bryan, & there`s always Hay on Wye! We fully intended to visit Birmingham but found so much to do in the immediate area that we need to delay that destination for another time. The only downside was the damp weather so I think a re-visit is called for!

We are so glad we booked this holiday cottage. It is a lovely cottage set in beautiful countryside. It is situated on a working farm however the area around the cottage is very quiet. It was lovely to be welcomed with a tea tray with home made cakes, a bottle of milk in the fridge and a lovely bottle of wine. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. This cottage has recently been renovated to a very high standard by the owners, it is in excellent order throughout with a lovely woodburner in the lounge area. Everywhere was spotless. The kitchen is well equipped with a good double oven and electric hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave. The bathroom is downstairs and has a really powerful shower over the bath. There are two upstairs bedrooms both a good size, one double and one twin. There is a pretty small garden with a picnic bench, and there is a bird feeder in the garden where we enjoyed watching the constant stream of blue tits, great tits, robins and even on one occasion a woodpecker. There is good parking off road next to the cottage. The road outside the cottage is fairly quiet and from the cottage you cannot hear the traffic at all. The cottage is situated just three miles from Ludlow and conveniently, just before you arrive in Ludlow itself, there is a very good park and ride service which takes you right into the middle of the town for about the same price as a short stay in a car park. Ludlow is a very pretty town and is well known for its foodie reputation and it certainly lives up to this with some lovely delis and restaurants also the Ludlow Food Centre which is well worth visiting. Ludlow is situated about twenty/thirty minutes from the borders of Herefordshire, Worcestershire and over to Powys in Wales and is a great place for sightseeing and walking. All in all a great place to stay.
