Three lovely home from home self catering cottages in the Heart of Rural North Shropshire
Bev and Mark welcome you to their home from home self catering country farm cottages with hot tub which are based near Whitchurch in North Shropshire. A perfect base for exploring Staffordshire and the Welsh borders as well as Cheshire and Shropshire and also for the Combermere Abbey and Iscoyd Park. There is a national cycle route at the end of our drive which has 6 scenic cycle rides and walks down country lanes with lovely country pubs and tea rooms on route.
We have two good dog friendly pubs which is within 5 minutes drive as well as an indian restaurant who will deliver to the cottages. Our local community run pub the White Lion has a lovely walk from its door down to Brown Moss Nature Reserve which is great for dog walks and then there is The Olde Jack Inn which can be walked to down a footpath which starts in Ightfield village.
Our luxury self catering cottages Oakpond and Oakwood are both dog friendly with a safe and secure garden in each cottage with walks from the door are both perfect for couples as well. Oakpond and Oaktree which has a very relaxing indoor hot tub can be booked together to sleep 8 people which is ideal for nans and grandads who want to be close by to their family but they have their own privacy.
An information pack with places to visit and whats on in the area will be sent to you prior to your holiday.
Please have a look at our reviews and comments which are posted on our facebook page.
Our private hot tub is available to book seperately and is a special touch and adds that extra indulgence to your holiday stay but not everyone wants to use one and so we charge seperately, so you dont pay if you dont want to use it.
Within 30 minutes are Attingham Park, Erdigg, Sunnycroft and Benthal House and the superb gardens at Biddulph Grange and only 5 minutes from the Combermere Abbey.
We are very lucky to have two charming gardens to visit which are Wollerton Gardens and Hodnet Hall Gardens and only 10 minutes away. Hawkestone Follies is also another gem to visit with its caves and follies as well as the Dorothy Clive Gardens. Grinsall Woods is a perfect place for walking and seeing the summit.
For the walkers we have the countrys most important nature reserve Brown Moss with its woodland walks and lakes and the Famous Sandstone Trail starting from Whitchurch. In the village there are footpaths with one leading to a very good pub which still has its traditional charm. All within 10 minutes away.
Alton Towers is only an hour away and Ironbridge is 40 minutes with Raf Cosford on route.
Oakpond and Oaktree cottages sit in an idylic setting amongst 103 acres of Shropshire countryside near Whitchurch which overlooks its own wildlife pond which is perfect for couples and families that require peace and quiet. Oakwood is a lovely country dog friendly bungalow located in the village in a very quiet location with no passing traffic with walks from the door.
The cottages all have wifi are are near to the beautiful and scenic canalside village of Audlem with its shops and tearooms and not forgetting the lovely circular walks which are perfect for dogs. Our nearest town is Whitchurch which is the oldest town in Shropshire with 10 circular walks. Brown Moss Nature Reserve is close by with its woodland walks and is a haven for wildlife.
Guests are most welcome to walk down to our farm and visit the animals. Horses are most welcome as we have some lovely lanes to hack down as well as the local farm ride gallops (which can be hacked to)
We do accept two dogs in Oakwood and one dog in Oakpond. We do offer a dog sitting service on the farm. Dogs are treated as valued guests with a welcome basket of treats, towels and throwovers whilst our human guests are treated with a lovely welcome tray.
