About the property

The spacious, open plan, 4-star accommodation at Minton Lane Cottage comprises of a large double bedroom with comfortable double bed, built-in wardrobes and panoramic views from all three windows. The property sleeps 2 adults but additional beds can be made available for children. There is a good-sized, modern shower room, fully fitted kitchen area and very well-presented dining/living space with wood-burning stove, perfect for cozy nights in after exploring the stunning Shropshire countryside.

The property is presented to a very high standard throughout, with stunning features including exposed beams and brickwork. Outside there is a patio area with table and chairs for alfresco dining and ample room for parking. Situated on a smallholding, the cottage is positioned midway between the pretty villages of Minton and Little Stretton, placing you in excellent walking and cycling countryside.

Minton Lane Cottage boasts an enviable location; an idyllic, peaceful spot nestled into the Long Mynd, with magnificent views all around, making it the perfect place to stay when exploring Shropshire. There are two good pubs serving food, wine and ale within easy walking distance and a range of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants can be found in Church Stretton just 1.5 miles away.

The property is easily accessible by road or rail. The station in Church Stretton is on the Manchester to Cardiff line, with a links to London from Newport, South Wales. If arriving by train, we are happy to provide a personal pick up and drop off service – just one of the many things we do to try and make your stay with us as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.

12 miles north of the cottage is the county town of Shrewsbury and 12 miles south is the town of Ludlow. Both towns are abundant with half-timbered buildings that house shops and, in some cases, top Michelin-starred restaurants. The towns are an architectural treat for everyone.

Lovely cottage, beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant stay at Minton Lane Cottage. The cottage is bright and comfortable and well equipped. It is located in beautiful surroundings - I wish we could wake up to those views every day! There are two lovely pubs within walking distance, both very friendly and serving excellent food. Church Stretton is a lovely town and there is excellent walking all around. Can't wait to come back!

Peaceful relaxing break in lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Cosy comfortable cottage well equipped with all you need. Very comfortable bed and decent pillows which make a welcome change in a rental property. Views from the cottage were lovely and plenty of garden for the dogs although kept ours on lead due to nearby sheep. Sarah just next door so available if needed. 20 min walk to the village where we ate in the Green Dragon pub on both evenings - lovely food. Only issue we found was that the shower was not very powerful - not sure why

very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

we were very comfortable in the cottage however there were a couple of small things that would improve it, such as coat hooks by the door, and a means of securing the outside doors open when windy.
