Shepherd's Retreat Self-Catering

Holiday home
Shepherd's Retreat is a unique wooden cottage with accommodation spread over two buildings in a farmyard location on a 100 acre working cattle farm on the outskirts of the Shropshire village of Leighton near to Ironbridge. Boasting one double bedroom, a kitchen and a sitting area with woodburner in the hut and a shower room in a separate building next door, this cottage can sleep two people. To the exterior of the cottage is off road parking for 1 car and a sitting area with outdoor furniture and countryside views. Just four miles from the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, Shepherd's Retreat is a wonderful holiday cottage for anyone wishing to explore this part of the country.

Accomodation Details
All ground floor. Open plan studio accommodation with double bed, kitchen, dining area and sitting area with woodburning stove. Shower room with shower, basin and WC in separate building next door.

The village of Leighton, which is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1087, stands in the heart of Shropshire, and is only four miles from the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, home of the world's first iron-built bridge, built 1777-79. The Ironbridge Gorge is one of the country's most delightful tourist attractions; situated in a lovely wooded valley, the village has many pubs, restaurants, shops and tea rooms. A collection of industrial and Victorian themed museums make up the Ironbridge Museums, including the renowned Blist Hill Victorian Village, where you can step back in time. Enjoy the nearby medieval towns of Much Wenlock, Shrewsbury and Ludlow, as well as many NT properties including Attingham Hall and Park as well as the fascinating Wroxeter Roman City and Vineyard.

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.

Self-Catering Reviews

Mr Carstairs

We loved our stay in the Shepherds Retreat.. The farm was very beautifully kept and they were very helpful. We didnt need anything. We took our own camping rings as there was only a microwave and toaster, this could be added in to make it easier to eat healthily. The addition of a shelf for food above the sink would be good too as the cupboard was difficult for me to bend down into as I have a hip problem. The slippery mat on the floor caused us a few skiding issues too. (again easily resolved) What we loved - the shower and bathroom was great and we were surprised how hot the water was. The bed was comfy and we had enough bedding. The sofa was fine and the TV worked really well with no problems. We loved the location and enjoyed exploring the area and just chilling in the Hut when it was really hot. So peaceful. We did make it up The Wrekin so we were very happy to get back to the home comforts of the Hut to recover! And who wouldnt love Molly!

Shepherd's Retreat was a lovely, tranquil and pretty place to stay. A very functional abode with good access by foot to places such as The Wrekin and Ironbridge. It definitely lives up to its name and would recommend it to anyone who wants a bit of time to unwind and relax.
