The Experience

Inside is traditional with well-chosen antiques, some beautiful original prints and paintings, wood carvings and ceramics. The house has underfloor heating and thick insulation so you’ll be cosy if you can’t get outdoors and there is a Smart TV, good board games and a cupboard full of toys for children. A thoughtful kitchen has proper sharp knives and plenty of gear, including a good Barista machine.

A welcome hamper brims with biscuits, bread and cake from local producers and you’ll find basics for cooking in the cupboards. Bedrooms, one master king-size double and a twin (with an extra truckle bed if needed), are uncluttered, peaceful and light; the shared family bathroom has a large bath and a rain shower and some lovely mosaic tiles.

The garden wraps around two sides of the house and there are table and chairs for al fresco meals plus a grassed area. At dusk you should see barn and tawny owls flying around the mature trees.

This is a gorgeous cottage in a beautiful part of Shropshire. My two children 10 and 8 had a lovely time visiting the local castles, scrambling over the ruins and enjoying muddy puddle walks. The house is beautifully appointed and furnished with excellent taste.

Alexander, London

A pretty property that has been sympathetically restored and enhanced with underfloor heating to make it super cosy. Calm, elegant and with well-chosen artworks, this is a civilised place to enjoy. After a day exploring Georgian gem Ludlow, return to dine in the enclosed garden as the sun sets and owls hoot in the background. There is so much to do in this unspoilt area that a week would not be enough.

David, Sawday's Inspector

Our stay at the School House in Clungunford was an absolute delight. From the moment we confirmed our booking, Sophie, our host, extended a warm welcome, setting the tone for a fantastic holiday experience..It was great to have a modern kitchen, equipped with everything necessary for preparing meals for my family, making it convenient and comfortable. The bedrooms are cosy and warm, .... My children enjoyed playing in the ample-sized garden as well as the village field...Our heartfelt thanks to Sophie for creating such a wonderful environment and making our stay an unforgettable experience.

Maria, Bristol

Sophias place is beautiful, the photos don’t do it enough justice. We had a dog with us, the garden was completely enclosed and very safe. There was a field literally across the road for early morning and late night walks. The walks and bike trails are endless and absolutely amazing. Really enjoyed staying here, will deffo come back.

Christina, Richmond

Absolutely spot on, nicest place we have stayed in, wish we could return soon.

The neighbourhood

Leintwardine, three miles, has two pubs, both very good. Stokesay Castle, four miles, is a 13th-century property. The gem is Ludlow, eight miles, a Georgian market town that fully deserves a visit, to wander, eat and shop. Bishops Castle, 12 miles, is very pretty and has some unusual shops, Shrewsbury is 21 miles and well worth a day out, Powys Castle, 43 minutes, has a stunning castle and gardens.

Local points of interest from Sophia

  • Tucked away in the glorious Shropshire countryside, eight miles from the market town of Ludlow, Trillow House was originally built as the old School Master’s House in the 1850s to a design by gothic architect AE Perkins.
  • The stunning and varied landscape of the Welsh Marches and Shropshire Hills AONB provides limitless walking and mountain biking trails. Hiking on Caer Caradoc and the Long Mynd is accessible from Church Stretton, 12 miles away.
  • Nearby trails include The Shropshire Way, Offa’s Dyke, The Herefordshire Trail and the Jack Mytton Way.
  • The area is richly populated with atmospheric iron age forts, medieval castles and stately homes. In particular there is National Trust gem, Croft Castle, and the renowned fortified manor house Stokesay Castle just down the road.
  • Just eight miles away is foodie heaven Ludlow, described by Country Life as 'the most vibrant small town in the country'. Its 500 listed buildings are mainly Georgian or half-timbered, set within the original 13th-century town walls.
  • The Clun Valley is known for its beautiful countryside, charming villages and series of castles and fortified manor houses. Hopton Castle is on the outskirts of the village; the romantic ruins of Clun Castle lie further up the valley.
