PLEASE NOTE: As from 8 May to 28 June 2018 the Farmhouse will be closed while we undertake major refurbishment to the property. When we reopen England Shelve Farmhouse will have FOUR EN SUITE DOUBLE BEDROOMS. This is an idyllic large luxury self-catering holiday cottage perfect for short breaks in beautiful surrounding countryside in this most tranquil and attractive part of South Shropshire. The self-catering cottage has 4 bedrooms, sleeping up to 8 people.
England Shelve Farmhouse nestles on the hillside, surrounded by farmland in this area of outstanding natural beauty, close to Bishops Castle, with magnificent views south to the Long Mynd.
The farmhouse is accessed by its own drive and there is ample parking for at least 4 cars. The owner’s house is about 25 metres behind the farmhouse and there are three pubs (www.thecrowninnwentnor.com - www.thebridgespub.co.uk) and a village shop within one mile of this tranquil setting. Several other pubs are within a short car journey.
The town of Bishop’s Castle is ten minutes away, with a good delicatessen, a butcher and two small supermarkets. There are several interesting cafes, pub and more than one micro brewery, brewing very popular local beers.
About half an hour away are both the gastronomic centre of Ludlow with its market and castle and the fascinating Coalbrookdale museums at Ironbridge. The county town of Shrewsbury, with all modern facilities including theatre, multiplex cinema and many restaurants, is 20 minutes drive.
Walking, gliding, fishing, golf, paragliding and pony trekking are amongst the numerous outdoor holiday activities the area is famous for. The Long Mynd, Offa’s Dyke, the Shropshire Way and the Stiperstones are all nearby. The village store and a pub/restaurant are within 1¼ miles.
