Annie’s Cabin

Last cache: 18:08:18, Wednesday 16 April 2014

Caynham Mill, Caynham, Ludlow, Shropshire
England, United Kingdom

Cosy Douglas fir cabin, with wood pellet stove, French windows out to meadows, space to run around. (Bake supper in the earth oven!)

Wonderfully chunky, seductively snug and full of fun. Drop down from the road and there's Annie's Cabin – bordered by meadow, brook and trees. Built of Douglas fir, topped with a solar-panelled roof and beautifully finished inside with polished oak floors and doors. A wood pellet stove in shiny red enamel kicks out warmth, French windows let the sun stream in and two decked terraces, one facing south, are more than conducive to a glass of red. Perfect for couples or families with reams of space for outdoor games. Inside is open-plan and full of lovely touches: a guitar on the wall, books on the shelf, maps in the drawer, DVDs, leather sofa and armchairs, a small classy telly and sound system. The kitchen is cream Shaker style, bedrooms are peaceful and cosy, while the wet room is impeccably minimalist. Everything is lovely, and that includes the welcome from the owners, who live in the mill house up the bank. If we were guests, we'd shop in Ludlow's food markets (two miles off) and spend the evening in, maybe baking pizzas under the stars in the hand-built earth oven – yum!

Local points of interest from
George Tasker:

  • Wonderful walks, both around Ludlow, and in the Shropshire Hills.
  • Explore Ludlow Castle, which hosts a number of festivals (Food & drink, Medieval Fayre, Summer open air Shakespeare)
  • Recommended nearby outdoor activities include hiring a canoe on the Severn, returning by steam railway, 'Go Ape' at Bewdley, or hiring a bike or electric bike
  • Use your holiday to try out green technologies - try the wood pellet stove in the depths of winter, try cooking in the pellet stove and on the induction hob, live for a week with solar water heating
  • Live indoors or out as the weather permits, and share the meadow with its wildlife
