Peaceful green Shropshire and a stunning garden surround this classic white farmhouse. There are chickens, ducks and geese dotted about, rabbits on the lawn, doves in the trees and a blooming veg patch.
Tess and family look after you well. Pretty bedrooms have tea trays and you wake for breakfast served on Portmeirion china: homemade marmalade, compotes, eggs from the hens, bacon and sausages from home-reared pigs. There are often scones and jam at teatime too.
Historic Shrewsbury, Ironbridge, Ludlow, and Powis Castle are all within reach, and you can join walking trails from the door. Sit in the garden and admire the views at summery times; settle by the log-burner with books to browse and a glass of wine in winter. Tess will happily drop and pick you up after dinner at The Riverside Inn, overlooking the river Severn and just four minutes away in Cressage.
