  • About the property

    Hare Cottage is one of five completely renovated cottages that are set within the private grounds of a Grade II* early Georgian country house estate. Enjoying a rural setting within a sleepy hamlet in Shropshire, this is an excellent place to escape everyday life and hunker down in peace for the duration of your stay. With beautiful views and 64 acres of grounds including a seven acre lake to explore, this is the perfect spot to do very little. Back at the cottage, there’s a delightful enclosed garden where you can unwind and if you have a dog that you’d like to bring along, he or she will be very at home here.

  • The space

    There are two bedrooms at the cottage. The first features a king-size bed, while the second bedroom has a single and a zip-link super-king (which can be split to form two single beds). There are also two bathrooms and if you enjoy a good soak after a day out walking in the countryside, there is a bath to soothe those aching limbs. Plus, for those who strive to look their best at all times, the Dyson hairdryer will soon tame windswept locks into shape.

    For quality time together, head into the cosy living area where there’s a Smart TV where you can watch films, while the log burner will add that extra kick of heat on cool winter evenings.

    The kitchen has everything you could need to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner here with ease. There’s an American-style fridge/freezer with plenty of room for all of your family’s favourite treats, an electric oven and hob, a Nespresso coffee machine, a microwave, kettle, toaster and dishwasher, as well as a washing machine and dryer.

    Outdoors there is an enclosed garden with a seating area where you can enjoy dining on delights cooked up on the gas BBQ. If you’re feeling a little bit chilly, light the firepit and enjoy a mug of hot chocolate, or something a little stronger. Meanwhile, the private hot tub is the perfect spot to spend an hour or two unwinding after a day out or to settle down in the evening and watch the stars come out.

Local Info

The neighbourhood

The cottage is located in a small hamlet in a scenic part of Shropshire and is about 9.5 miles away from the traditional town of Market Drayton. Here, you can visit the Wednesday market, join a guided tour of Joules Brewery to sample beer made with local spring water or buy some freshly made gingerbread for which the town is famous. Meanwhile, the stunning scenery can be enjoyed on a walk along the towpath of the Shropshire Union Canal, or a gentle bike ride on the John O’Groats to Land’s End cycle route that runs through the town.

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 area around the cottage is rich in outstanding gardens and heritage sites. About 5 minutes away there’s Hodnet Hall Gardens that features over 60 acres of grounds including ornamental pools; Wollerton Old Hall Garden which exudes glorious English country style; and Hawkstone Park and Follies where you can explore sandstone caves, towers and bridges.

If you fancy visiting a city, Chester is about an hour’s drive away and promises a mix of historic treasures including a Roman amphitheatre and the famous city walls. There’s also a beautiful cathedral, a historic racecourse and riverside restaurants to discover, making it a great day trip.

Getting around

Due to the rural location, a car is essential for getting around. The cottage is accessible from the M6 (22 miles away) and M54 (13 miles away).
