    Surrounded by breathtaking views, Drovers Rest offers a serene escape in the heart of Shropshire. Original features combined with high-end amenities create a warm and inviting space to relax and unwind, so much so that you will never want to leave. Spend your days exploring the Long Mynd and surrounding countryside, all before returning to your cosy abode for an evening in front of the crackling log burner.

  • The space

    This newly renovated cottage is decorated in a traditional country style with vaulted ceilings, neutral décor and exposed wooden beams.

    The property begins with a large hallway, complete with handy storage for boots and coats, an oak staircase and an immediate feeling of warmth and comfort. After a day of exploring the countryside, venture into the open-plan kitchen/dining/living room which has been designed to maximise the outstanding views across the Long Mynd and beyond.

    The fully equipped farmhouse kitchen features everything you will need to self-cater with ease, including an electric oven, a hob, a dishwasher, a fridge/freezer, a coffee machine, microwave and wine fridge. Meanwhile, the four-seater dining table is the perfect place to gather for meals or plan your next adventure.

    For ample comfort, head over to the sitting room, which is complete with two inviting sofas, a crackling log burner and bi-fold doors leading to the private patio. Relax here with a bean-to-cup coffee and your favourite book in-hand, or simply admire the unspoilt views.
    There are two beautiful bedrooms, each complete with calming colour tones, country-style décor and stunning views. The first bedroom is on the ground floor and features a super-king-size bed (it can be converted into two singles if required) and the master bedroom is on the first floor with a super-king-size bed.

    There are two bathrooms, one on the ground floor with a shower and one on the first floor with a shower and a bath.

    Outside, you will have access to a private patio and a lawned garden which offer total peace and tranquillity amongst the National Trust’s Long Mynd.

Local Info

The neighbourhood

The cottage is located near Church Stretton, with plenty of scenic walking routes on the doorstep, including the Long Mynd, Caer Caradac and Carding Mill Valley.

There are several pubs nearby, and all recommended restaurants can be found in the welcome book upon arrival or provided ahead of time via email if requested. Meanwhile, the pretty market town of Church Stretton is just a 7-minute drive away or a 40-minute walk if you fancy it. Here, you’ll find an abundance of artisan boutiques, restaurants and cafes to enjoy.

For a day out with the children, you can head to Attington Park for a stroll around the stunning gardens and a peek inside the 18th-century mansion. You might even spot the resident herd of deer roaming the grounds.

A little further away is the riverside town of Shrewsbury that is brilliant for shopping with large stores sitting next to independent shops, and a big indoor market that sells a great range of handmade goods and artisan foods. Shrewsbury also brims with historic buildings including Shrewsbury Castle, while the contemporary Theatre Severn is a great place to catch a show before drinks in a cosy pub.

The medieval market town of Ludlow is just over 30 minutes away and well worth a visit. Discover the history of Ludlow Castle, dine in one of the many excellent restaurants and cafes and amble through the Ludlow Millennium Green. The town is also known for its thriving events and festivals throughout the year, including the Medieval Christmas Fayre and the Ludlow Food and Drink Festival.
