The Stable description

Holiday home
This stone-built cottage near Craven Arms is an attractive detached barn conversion which stands in its own grounds, close to the owners' home on a 200-acre working livestock farm. The cottage sleeps six people in four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The cottage also has a fitted kitchen and a sitting room with doors to the garden. Outside is off road parking and a lawned garden with outdoor furniture. The Stable is a lovely stone cottage in beautiful surroundings. An excellent Craven Arms cottage for discovering all of beautiful Shropshire.

The town of Craven Arms is located between the medieval town of Ludlow and Church Stretton. The historic towns of Bishops Castle, Ludlow and Shrewsbury are a short drive away, and offer magnificent castles, riverside walks, shops, pubs, restaurants, theatres and a variety of festivals.

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.

The garden and outside areas were excellent at The Stable, especially with 3 young children! The owner was also very friendly and approachable. Great location of cottage for exploring this area of Shropshire.

The space both inside and out was perfect for the 3 small children. It felt very homely and clean. We travelled a long way for just the 3 nights of the bank holiday weekend and it was well worth it.

The cottage was very spacious and comfortable and had everything we required and more! The area is beautiful with walks from the farm making it ideal. The surrounding areas including The Long Mynd, Wenlock Edge and Clee Hill are outstanding, with plenty of opportunities for walking and sightseeing.

The cottage was well equipped and had the added bonus of an enclosed garden. There were plenty of walks from the doorstep and the scenery was fantastic. The owner was very accommodating without being intrusive.

It was our first visit to the area and the cottage was an ideal base from which to explore. The cottage ticked all the boxes. The farmer was very friendly and helpful, and there were walks from the kitchen door. Would stay here again.

Represented great value for money and provided exactly what we needed with two dogs. It was very well placed for getting out to the classic Shropshire walks and also had nice walks direct from the property. We found it very peaceful and extremely comfortable. We would recommend it very highly!

Ms Hill

The cottage was ideal for us. The dogs were safe, we were near suitable walks and the whole experience was very good. We shall return again if we can. People were helpful with walks which was wonderful as it is situated on farmland and I needed the dogs to be safe for the farm animals.
