The Old Stables Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
The Old Stables is a delightful cottage, adjoined to the owners' historic 16th century timber-framed home in the attractive Shropshire village of Knockin and can sleep two people. This all ground floor cottage has one double bedroom, a shower room with underfloor heating and an open plan living area with a kitchen with underfloor heating, a dining area and a sitting area. Outside there is off road parking for one car, lockable bike storage and an enclosed courtyard patio with furniture and a barbecue. The Old Stables is a wonderful base for your romantic holiday.

Knockin is a lovely village, well situated between Shrewsbury and Oswestry and close to the England/Wales border. Knockin benefits from St Mary's Church, a lovely 12th century church, a village shop known as ‘The Knockin Shop' and the Bradford Arms pub, where you can enjoy good food. This is a lovely base for touring Shropshire.

A E Housman 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.

Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Off road parking for 1 car. Lockable bike storage. Enclosed courtyard patio with furniture and BBQ. One well-behaved dog welcome. Sorry, no smoking.

An excellent location for exploring the Wales - England border. Although small, The Old Stables was very comfortable accommodation with beautiful oak woodwork and a friendly landlady.

A good base for a walking holiday and just the right size for 1 or 2 people. The kitchen was finished equipped to an excellent standard and the power shower was great especially after a walk. The location is very close to several canal walks as well as being close to other centres for walking such as Ellesmere, Offa's Dyke and Lake Vyrnwy.
