Property code: 81109

Stylish romantic retreat with hot tub and games room is rural Shropshire. Perfect for walkers, cyclists, historians, and culture enthusiasts being located halfway between Shrewsbury and Oswestry.

This single-storey home is the perfect destination for those after a mix of adventure and downtime. Whisk a loved one away and bring your four-pawed companion along too to enjoy an escape close to the England/Wales border where you can fill your days with exploring. After time in the market towns of Shrewsbury (9 miles) and Oswestry (10 miles), get competitive over a game of table tennis or relax in the hot tub after rinsing off muddy paws in the doggy shower.

Inside, the open-plan kitchen/lounge/diner has a light feel with a simple yet elegant style to help you unwind. With a sofa each, curl up and take it in turns to stroke your pup who can get comfortable at your feet. After a date-night dinner and some tasty leftovers for your waggy-tailed third wheel, spend time outside and sit on the patio with a drink, bubble in the hot tub or challenge each other to a game of table tennis. The handy utility room is great for rinsing off muddy paws and is home to a table football so you can continue your games night before heading to bed. The double bedroom has a Smart TV so you can spend lazy mornings tucked up under the covers. There is off-road parking for two cars.

For a good old hike, head south into the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and walk from the Carding Mill Valley (21.5 miles) to the top of Long Mynd. This challenging walk rewards you with fantastic panoramic views and a whole host of stick chasing spots to enjoy from start to finish. A trio of National Trust properties lie within 30 miles; visit Attingham Park (14.5 miles), Benthall (26 miles) or Wenlock Edge (30 miles) for a dog-friendly day out.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lovely, clean accommodation in a very private location with great facilities. Underfloor heating provides for warmth but afforded us the opportunity to keep the living room cooler for our Newfie who is not a fan of heat! Whilst the lanes were wet & muddy, the laundry facilities and dog shower ensured we were able to clean up with ease and having usRead moree of the secure garden/paddock was a bonus.

The perfect setting to escape day to day life. So peaceful and relaxing. The cottage it's self was spotless everything and more that was needed, warm and welcoming. The outside areas are stunning with next to no noise. We extended our stay for another night and even then we didn't want to leave it was beautiful.
