Self-Catering in Market Drayton, Shropshire
Situated in the heart of North Shropshire with views over beautiful open countryside, the cottage is a fully self contained part of the owner’s farmhouse.
Although extended over time the original farmhouse dates back to the late 17th century and some of the original timber structure can still be seen.
Access from the highway is via a long stone and concrete track, past a neighbouring farm and cottage with Styche Farm at the track end, ensuring there is no passing traffic.
The cottage, accessed through its own separate entrance, has recently been extensively modernised to provide high quality accommodation in which guests can unwind and enjoy the peace and quiet this rural setting affords. The cottage is situated in the centre of the owner’s land where cattle and sheep graze the pastures. A short walk across the field gives access to the lake where guests can sit and watch the resident waterfowl peacefully going about their lives.
The lake is stocked with trout and by arrangement and a small supplement guests can test their fly fishing skills.
The farm is home to an array of wildlife, hares, pheasants and grey squirrels regularly pass though the garden to the fields, a pair of Swans, Canada and Bean geese and a variety of ducks are winter visitors to the lake, flocks of Fieldfares stop off to feed on their migration, Swallows are summer visitors whilst three types of resident owls can often be heard and seen.
If you fancy exploring the area on foot, a footpath runs through the farm and maps are available to borrow to ensure your safe return. The local town is Market Drayton, home of Gingerbread, which has both a livestock market and a street market on Wednesdays and offers easy access to the Shropshire Union Canal. For those wanting attractions further a field, Hawkstone Follies, Ironbridge Gorge Museum, Blists Hill Victorian Town and Cosford Air Museum are well worth a visit whilst the historic towns of Chester and Shrewsbury are within easy reach.
A welcome tray will be waiting on your arrival and Andrew and Julie will always be glad to answer any questions you may have about places to visit, the farm and farming or the countryside and look forward to welcoming you to Styche Farm.
