Cowslip Cottage sleeping up to 2 guests
Much Wenlock offers the rustic charm of a medieval market-town, filled with a patchwork of twisting streets, black and white half-timbered buildings, limestone cottages, speciality shops, numerous hostelries and watering holes and the remains of a magnificent 12th Century Priory.
Cowslip Cottage was originally a barn and has been lovingly restored to offer accommodation for up to 2 people. It is situated just over 3 miles away from Much Wenlock, in 70 acres of farmland. It retains much of its original charm, through exposed beams that run throughout the property. The accommodation is spread out over one level and is arranged in an open-plan style. The communal garden to the rear has two fishing lakes and allows ample opportunity for a spot of alfresco dining in the summer months. There is parking for up to 2 cars and local amenities can be found in Much Wenlock.
All ground floor.
One lovely twin bedroom with built in wardrobes. Bathroom with bath with shower over, basin and WC. Attractive open plan living area with fitted kitchen, dining table and cosy sitting area with ornamental electric fire.The Priory forms a backdrop to many outdoor events and theatrical performances, including the Tales from the Edge Festival. The 16th Century Guildhall hosts regular antiques markets. Above the town rises the Wenlock Edge which provides glorious views. This 15 mile limestone escarpment was created some 400 million years ago and is now looked after by the National Trust. The Edge and its ancient woodlands offer excellent walks, cycling and riding opportunities. Long distance routes like the Jack Mytton Way and Shropshire Way pass over Wenlock Edge. Nearby are further attractions, such as Benthall Hall - a 16th Century house with stunning interiors and a carefully restored plantsman's garden - and Broseley Pipe Works: a Victorian clay tobacco-pipe works.
A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was “the quietest place under the sun” and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.
