Traditional cottage interiors, far-reaching countryside views and a hot tub make this charming Shropshire cottage an ideal getaway for a nature-loving couple plus up to three canine companions. Explore the surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, filled with nature reserves, hiking trails and historical landmarks before unwinding in front of the fire.

As you enter the property, you’ll be greeted with characterful flagstone floors and exposed wooden beams. Defrost cold paws and feet in front of the wood burner, which sits in a large exposed stone inglenook fireplace in the neutral-toned lounge/diner with a comfortable sofa. Behind the lounge area is an intimate dining table with seating for two. Continue into the farmhouse-style kitchen with wooden worktops and tones of green. Upstairs is a super-king-size bedroom plus a bathroom with a shower over the bath. Take your four-legged friend for a run around the fenced garden with furniture, a BBQ and a hot tub. Surrounding the property are 43 acres of grounds, which has a laundry room for all guests on the farm.

Start your day with a dog walk around the farmland, a designated local wildlife site, where you can meet the sheep and soak up the countryside views. Go on an adventure along the Glyndwr’s Way National Trail or set off along Offa’s Dyke (8.5 miles). Pop to the local pub and shop while based in the village of Beguildy or visit the mediaeval town of Clun (9.5 miles), where you’ll find castle ruins.
