The Olde Cowshed Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
This brick built barn conversion is located in a courtyard setting on the owner's 250-acre farm, situated at the edge of Westhope village and just six miles from Church Stretton. Originally part of a 19th Century stable block, the cottage has been lovingly renovated and furnished to a high standard throughout, boasting original exposed beams and trusses in addition to all the comforts of modern living. Situated to the south of Wenlock Edge, this two bedroom property is able to sleep up to four people and provides high quality accommodation in outstanding surroundings.

The scattered village of Westhope is located amidst rolling farmland at the southern foot of the famous Wenlock Edge in Hope Valley. The area is home to numerous walks, rambling trails and cycle routes whilst many of Shropshire's main attractions are within easy driving distance of the village itself. Visitors can enjoy Church Stretton - known to the Victorians as Little Switzerland - with its antique shops and tea-rooms, in the midst of the beautiful Long Mynd Hills and close to the Acton Scott Historic Working Farm and the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre. The World Heritage Site at Ironbridge, Attingham Park, the market towns of Much Wenlock, Shrewsbury and Ludlow are all within easy reach, leaving visitors to the area spoiled for choice.

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.

Everything in the The Olde Cowshed has been designed for a 'home from home' experience and all in a high standard of finish. It has been described as an oasis of calm, and it really is. There was a lovely welcome when we arrived and the owners were really helpful when approached.

The very kind friendly touch of the owners who had left us a beautiful vase of flowers, a cake, some wine and milk in the fridge. All of this means so much. We loved the games room and all the books and DVDs and games in the house. There is a lovely bathroom upstairs too. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

The family that own the cottages were just brilliant. They were at hand to help with anything we needed and when I left part of my blender in one of the cottages, they posted it back to me and didn't even charge me for the postage. They were just fantastic. The cottages were beautiful and we are already planning when we will visit again as the area and walks in Shropshire were fantastic as well. Incredibly comfortable place to stay and reasonably priced. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone and will definitely be visiting again.
Mr Stubbs
