The lovely enclosed garden of approximately two acres has two large patios facing west and south with teak outdoor furniture, a barbecue and fire bowl for cooking and camp fires! With stunning views over the Shropshire hills, it's the perfect social spot for alfresco dining. There's no one to disturb here - the gardens and grounds are completely private.
