Caro's Cottage description

Holiday home
Caro's Cottage is a semi-detached cottage situated next to the owner's home just over a mile from the Shropshire village of Dorrington. The cottage sleeps five people in two double bedrooms, both with an en-suite, and a sofa bed. It also has a cosy kitchen and a spacious sitting room. Outside is off road parking, a private patio and shared use of the owner's garden. With Shrewsbury just eight miles away and all of the Shropshire countryside to discover, Caro's Cottage is a lovely holiday cottage all year round.

The large Shropshire village of Dorrington is situated seven miles from Church Stretton and eight miles from Shrewsbury. The village offers two pubs, a Persian cuisine restaurant, a shop and a butchers. The Long Mynd and Stiperstone Hills are both close by, as is the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge, the Roman ruins at Wroxeter, Stokesay Castle and the Acton Scott Historic Farm.

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.

Quality accommodation in a very peaceful location.
September 2015
This is a nice cottage with all that you need and good bedrooms. The location is very out the way an a good 10-15 min drive thorough narrow lanes to fine civilisation. Which is not a major problem. My only issue was the owner was too interfering for my liking.. When we had not long arrived she was walked in through the door that adjoined her home to the cottage. I was not pleased at this. She did the same thing the next day as we were eating our dinner. She then spoke to my partner in a condescending tone when she could not get the cooker working. Still a good place but owner needs to stay away until requested.
