Self-Catering in Church Stretton, Shropshire
In a tiny hamlet, at the foot of the Long Mynd, deep in the Shropshire countryside, this extraordinary, Grade II listed cottage is a fine example of a 15th century hall house, extended over the intervening years and retaining a wealth of original features.
Despite its antiquity, the rooms are all of a very fair size and the house has been beautifully adapted for contemporary living whilst still exuding a real feeling of history.
Long Mynd House is warm and welcoming and will enchant visitors with its amazing beams and medieval quirkiness; an ideal place to step back in time within a cosy and comfortable environment and to find out more about this fascinating region. Its refurbishment has been painstakingly researched by the current owners and there are now high quality furnishings and fittings throughout combined with the latest amenities and appliances.
Visitors may simply like to relax in the attractive garden which rises behind the cottage to a secluded sitting-out area; but this is also excellent walking and cycling country with the famous, steep Long Mynd (hang gliding and paragliding) immediately behind, whilst the Welsh Marches and Offa’s Dyke Path are a short drive away, as is Stokesay Castle (EH), a virtually unaltered 13th century fortified manor house. The medieval town of Shrewsbury and historic Ironbridge are easily reached to the north, and the market towns of Ludlow and Leominster are a similar distance to the south. The local town of Church Stretton, within the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is 2½ miles away and has a good variety of shops, pubs and restaurants.
