Rural Holiday Accommodation on the Long Mynd
Our guests say “The cottage is comfortable, well equipped and in a very peaceful loction.” “Idyllic spot- so beautiful and peaceful.”
**NOW WITH WI-FI**
The Pottery is located on the slopes of the Long Mynd and has a wonderful view. Its peaceful position provides an ideal base for walking, cycling or car-based sightseeing. There are many walks that may be taken direct from the front door.
Accommodation is of a high standard.
Upstairs there is a double bedroom (which can be set up as one super-king size bed or two singles) with a shower room and lavatory. The gallery area between the bedroom and bathroom can accommodate twin beds if required. The property is officially classified as ‘single family occupancy’.
There is a well-equipped galley kitchen with gas oven and hob, together with a microwave for those “can’t be bothered to cook” times.
Outside, for al fresco eating and for you to enjoy the view, there is a decking area with a table, chairs and barbecue.
‘The Pottery’ has been renovated to a sound, eco friendly design. The timber, Douglas Fir and French Chestnut, come from sustainable sources, the paints and varnishes are non chemically based and the kitchen work top is made from recycled yoghurt pots! Hot water to The Pottery and main house is provided by solar panels, weather permitting, although there is oil heating as a backup.
We do not charge extra for any logs you burn in the wood burning stove. The Pottery is a homely base to explore the area with a truly beautiful location.
The Pottery has full independent central heating, a wood burning stove, hair dryer, TV with freeview, DVD player with integrated CD player, a separate radio, seasonal solar water heating, barbecue, fresh spring water and parking on site.
There is a village pub half a mile away, serving real ale and good food.
Church Stretton town and train station is one and a half miles away, the county town of Shrewsbury, with its timber-framed buildings, 11 miles.
Wenlock Edge and Much Wenlock town is 8 miles and Ludlow, with its Michelin starred restaurants, 15 miles.
The Long Mynd plateau rises to the west of The Pottery and the Lawley and Caer Caradoc hills, across the valley, beautifully reflect the changing lights and shades of the day.
A deed of sale from 1864 refers to a cottage, outbuilding and cow house on the site: the latter has long gone, but we believe the outhouse was used to stable a horse and trap into the early 20th century. The subsequent history is sparse, but we believe the smallholding was used for egg production during WW2.
Children are very welcome (we are happy to provide a cot, high chair and stair gates if you need them) but sorry, no smoking and no pets.
We are proud to have many repeat guests. Comments from our guest book include: “Beautiful views and great walking.” “We hope to come back very soon.” We look forward to welcoming you!
