Why we love it

Your dog and you have the run of 25 acres of woodland and pasture, with two lakes to swim in and biscuits and blankets to come home to

What you'll love

Dogs will love

  • Splashing in and out of the lakes
  • Long walks through the stunning countryside
  • Thick fleece blankets to curl up under

Humans will love

  • The seclusion of a place ten minutes from the nearest building
  • Rowing about on the water with dragonflies buzzing around
  • Finishing great hikes at any one of the wealth of local pubs

The place

A shoes-off sort of place where you’ll forget what time it is the moment you arrive and never check again. While there’s a throwback simplicity to spending time here – picnicking, hiking, rowing on the lake, dozing on the jetty – the cabin is bright, spacious and well-appointed, so you get the best of the modern world mixed with the nostalgia of summers past. The comfort of the cabin, the little summerhouse, extensive grounds, flourishing wildlife and the arboretum might be more than enough to keep you occupied for a few days, but there’s plenty to tempt you out. Great walks like the climb up Clee Hill or the Mawley circular can include visits to lovely local pubs, and foodie Ludlow is just round the corner, with the quiet of the woods and the firepit making a perfect end to the day.

In the neighbourhood

  • Make the walk from the quarry car park to the spectacular views from the top of Clee Hill. Pick up fish & chips from Clee village on the way through and time it for a sunset dinner
  • The Cleobury Mortimer trail takes you past the famous crooked church spire and you can visit Hobsons brewery and pub along the way
  • Visit Ludlow for a walk on the Common, round the castle and along the river, and maybe to pick up BBQ supplies at the market
  • A ride on the colourful carriage of the Bridgnorth funicular railway is a fun way to spare yourself a climb
  • The Live and Let Live, in Neen Sollars (the next village over) is well worth a visit for a warm welcome, a great pint and views from the garden
  • Shrewsbury’s beautiful old centre is a pleasant place to wander for a morning, with some great shops hidden in the narrow alleys
