Sorry, no pets without prior discussion and no smoking. Shop and pub 12 mins walk. Note: There is limited headroom throughout and the apartment is accessed via 13 external steps, which may become slippery in bad weather. The platform on which the bed is located is accessed via a 305mm step, this may be difficult for people with disabilities. note if using sofa bed it will limit the living space considerably.

It is next door to a family with children. Region: A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was 'the quietest place under the sun' and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.

The village offers two pubs, a Persian cuisine restaurant, a shop and a butchers. The Long Mynd and Stiperstone Hills are both close by, as is the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge, the Roman ruins at Wroxeter, Stokesay Castle and the Acton Scott Historic Farm. thos owners live next door and are available for help should you need it..but will leave you alone and respect your privacy at all times. please note the price quoted includes 20% vat, a vat invoice can be provided on request More
