Kite's Nest Pet-Friendly Cottage Self-Catering

Holiday home
Kite's Nest is one of three barn conversion cottages on a 200 acre farm in the village of Eaton-under-Heywood near to Church Stretton in Shropshire. With one king size double bedroom and an ensuite bathroom on the mezzanine floor this cottage sleeps two people. The rest of the accommodation is made up of an open plan living area with a fitted kitchen, a dining area and a sitting room. Outside the cottage is off road parking for 2 cars, bike storage, a private patio with furniture plus a shared lawned garden with a brick built BBQ. There is also a 10 acre natural garden with ponds and access to 100 acres of woodland on the slopes of Wenlock Edge. Livery for guests horses are by arrangement with the owner. With so much to see and do all year round, Kite's Nest is a fabulous holiday cottage in the heart of Shropshire.

Area
The rural village of Eaton-under-Heywood lies under both the famous Wenlock Edge and the woods that run along it, and is surrounded by scenic countryside. From the village, the Jacob's Ladder path leads straight up the Edge, providing lovely walks. Nearby is the market town of Church Stretton, which lies in the heart of south Shropshire. It is set amid striking scenery and has often been described as "Little Switzerland". The town is the main centre for Shropshire's hill country and home to a variety of tearooms, pubs and specialist shops. Other local attractions include walks on the Long Mynd, the Acton Scott Working Farm as seen on TV, and Stokesay Castle. The historic towns of Shrewsbury, Ludlow, the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, Much Wenlock and Bishops Castle are only a short journey away.

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.

It had everything you needed for the 4 night stay we had.. The owners were warm,friendly and very welcoming. Being a working farm there were chickens,turkeys,ducks and peacocks wandering around which was lovely to see. A very peaceful and tranquil surroundings an ideal place to unwind and chill would recommend.

A lovely little cottage - everything I needed and hoped for.. The owners were great and responded quickly with a couple of minor issues. Thank you.

This well equipped cottage was lovely. The cottage is on a working farm so you will get visits from chickens, peacocks and ducks. Located in the Shropshire hills the scenery is superb, and you are ideally based for attractions like Ironbridge, Seven Valley Railway, Powis Castle and Shropshire Sculpture Park.
Ms Cockerill, March 2020

Warm,comfortable cottage which is well equipped.. Added bonus was the chickens, peacocks, owl and watching the horses.
Mrs Dyne, September 2019

The location of these rather pleasant barn conversions seems the most remote of places.. There is as near to zero traffic as you will get. The only sounds in the morning and evening are the activities of the local hens, peacocks and horses. The lanes are very narrow and windy, but there is very little traffic, so nothing to worry about. Shopping at Craven Arms or Church Stretton for food is around 20 minutes away. Wonderful walking country on your doorstep and interesting places to visit such as Much Wenlock and Ludlow are both very close. Although we went at the height of the tourist season, it still feels relatively undiscovered as an area. The hostess was very friendly and interested. They live in New Hall which is a fifteenth century house, with extensive gardens and woodlands. They have created a rather nice walk for the guests to wonder around, which is an added bonus.

This holiday cottage was a delight from beginning to end- the beautiful location; the colourful cockerels, chickens and ducks wandering about; the splendid garden trails and wildlife.. A parasol for the picnic bench would have been useful during the warm afternoons and evenings.
Mrs Davies, July 2019

Whilst the cottage is compact it had everything we needed for our stay.. It’s a little remote being a few miles out of Church Stretton but very peaceful, despite living amongst the chickens, ducks & peacocks (which just added to the charm). It was nice to have a dishwasher as this saved time on chores, though the dinner plates didn’t quite fit in!!!! Would have been nice to have a larger TV in the lounge, maybe even a smart one. The surrounding area is lovely, great for walking and cycling or just meandering the shops and parks of Shrewsbury or Ludlow. I’m sure we’ll be back.

The whole experience of holidaying at Kite’s Nest from our first contacts with the owner of the property was great.. Directions were clear and accurate. Once on site Kim and the family were very responsive to our needs. The accommodation was well equipped and anything we needed was facilitated. Thank you Kim for a fantastic week in Kite’s Nest.

Great rural location, friendly owner and great walking.. Sadly I had broken my ankle and was unable to take advantage on this occasion, but the owner Kim provided a great footstool, which was a really thoughtful gesture.

Mr Baxter

My daughter and I loved the rural location, although may not be suitable to everyone.. The owner allowed us access to the grounds of their farmhouse which extend to 10 acres of natural garden and 100 acres of woodland, absolutely delightful and inspiring. It was so tranquil with only the sounds of the farm animals including a peacock family! Would go back in a heartbeat.
Mrs Rudd

We had a most enjoyable holiday in this cottage - it was an ideal location for exploring the area and we really enjoyed being in such a beautiful location.. The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped. The owners were welcoming and helpful.
Mr Buckle
July 2018
We felt that the dish washer was superfluous for just two of us: whereas a washing machine would have been handy.. The situation was superb and a map of the area was unfortunately missing, or rather hanging on the wall which is not exactly the right format for walking. There was a vast array of tourist information leaflets which was commendable, but nothing to highlight the wonderful walks near to the cottage. Compared to other organisations this was good value for money and we knew that the owner was always available in case of problems. The issues we mentioned are minor since we consider this the best of the many holiday cottages we have rented over the years. I feel impelled to mention that the signposting .of footpaths in the area is appalling and caused us considerable problems, though we appreciate that it is nothing to do with you or the owners of the cottage. However as a major player in the tourist market you might be able to influence the local authorities concerned.
Mr Macwilliam

The cottage was delightful.. The surroundings are stunning, as is the local area generally. The private gardens to which occupants of the cottages had access were tranquil and inviting. The owners were most welcoming, and were happy to allow us to see their animals, of which there were many. We would certainly return.
Mrs Codling

Gorgeous little cottage, extremely helpful and friendly owner.. Lovely gesture of beautiful daffodils as a welcome gift with local biscuits. Glorious countryside and beautiful towns to visit. Wish we had had longer.

Kite's Nest was a dear little cottage, we enjoyed seeing all the animals, especially the rescued owls. My husband wanted to bring Percy the Peacock home, but of course, we couldn't let him. We loved Bluebell the dear little tabby cat. Would recommend this holiday to anybody who wants peace and quiet with animals. Shropshire is a beautiful county.

Location excellent to visit the area. Great property to take the dog did not need to worry about muddy paws due to the tile flooring. Peaceful location. Property not overlooked by the owners but they are close enough if there was a problem. Friendly but not intrusive. Will visit again and would recommend.

Kite's Nest is a cosy, well equipped cottage. We found it to be very comfortable and in a lovely setting on the farm with peacocks, chickens and ducks visiting us daily. The cottage is in a very quiet rural location with walks available from the door step. The only downside for us was the very narrow roads from Church Stretton to the accommodation which we found a little too narrow for our liking. A beautiful area though and a really lovely little cottage.

We stayed at this accommodation for a week recently. We found the 'cottage' to be well equipped and comfortably furnished. We enjoyed seeing the animals from the farm wandering around and had frequent visits from the chickens and cat. The accommodation is set in a rural area and is incredibly peaceful. The location of the cottage near Church Stretton is good and we found access easy to Ludlow, Shrewsbury, Much Wenlock and Ironbridge with some stunning walks located closeby. The only downside for us was that the road to the accommodation is very narrow with only a few passing points and this did put us off venturing out in the evening for meals. Overall though a very pleasant accommodation that was clean and comfortable and in a delightful setting.
