  • About the property

    Pheasant Cottage is one of five completely renovated cottages that are set within the private estate of a Grade II* early Georgian country house. Enjoying a rural setting within a sleepy hamlet in Shropshire and 64 beautiful acres of country estate grounds including a seven acre lake to explore, it’s a great place to chill out. However, with superb gardens and heritage sites within easy driving distance, you’ll soon be tempted to venture a little further to discover more of Shropshire’s charms.

  • The space

    The living area is perfect for spending evenings in front of the Smart TV and if you want to feel extra warm on a chilly night, there’s a log burner that’s sure to take the cosiness level up a notch.

    The kitchen has everything you could need to prepare everything from a light breakfast to a three-course meal, including an electric oven and hob, a fridge/freezer, a microwave, kettle, toaster and dishwasher, as well as a washing machine and dryer.

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).
