Three lovely self catering cottages in the Heart of Rural North Shropshire
Bev and Mark welcome you to their home from home self catering country cottages which are based near Whitchurch in North Shropshire. The two farm cottages and our detached bungalow are a perfect base for exploring Staffordshire and the Welsh borders as well as Cheshire and Shropshire. There is a national cycle route at the end of our drive which has 6 scenic cycle rides or walks down country lanes with lovely country pubs and tea rooms on route.
Our family cottages Oakpond and Oakwood are both dog friendly with a safe and secure garden with walks from the door. Wifi is available in all cottages.
We also have a very relaxing indoor hydrotherapy hot tub which is private and is available to hire.
Within 30 minutes are Attingham Park, Erdigg, Sunnycroft and Benthal House and the superb gardens at Biddulph Grange.
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.
For the walkers we have the countrys most important nature reserve Brown Moss with its woodland walks and lakesnandthe 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 close to our farm amongst 103 acres of Shropshire countryside overlooking its own wildlife pond which is perfect for couples and families that require peace and quiet.
The cottages 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 an old market town and Nature Reserves with wonderful countryside walks.
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 home-made cake and free range eggs from our hens (when still laying). A freshly baked cream tea and other goodies are left in the cottages for any returning guests.
