Exceptional Service

Our award-winning Guest Services team will not only help you find your dream holiday but will support you through every step of your stay.

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.
