Squire Cottage is an old farmhouse built half in stone and half in timber and render with a smattering of red brick! It sits at the top of a field looking down towards the River Redlake and the Dingle with its babbling brook and ancient wet woodland.

Stone front of Squire Cottage

With superfast wi-fi broadband and a smart phone with wi-fi calling, you need not be completely out of touch unless you want to be - your choice!

The cottage sleeps four people comfortably in two bedrooms; a cot and sofa bed are also available for extra family members. The front door opens onto one open space with a large inglenook fireplace complete with bread oven, dominating the ‘living’ end of the room.  Here you can sit around the open fire telling stories, reading, listening to music or watching television.  At the other end, there is a fully equipped kitchen with hand built oak units and a large refectory table. There is also a small cloakroom with lavatory and washbasin, the washing machine and room for wellies and boots.

Wooden stairs (mind your head and don’t be distracted by the view through the window) lead up to a spacious landing and to one room with two single beds, the bathroom and the double bedroom with a magnificent chimneybreast.

The cottage keeps it’s ancient authenticity and rural feel by retaining the old beams complete with redundant peg holes through which the children can spy on their parents! New oak flooring with rugs and mats add to the cosy and comfortable feel of the place; though watch your heads, some of the doorways are very low.

There is central heating and hot water provided by an oil-fired boiler, but please don’t expect hotel-type temperatures in Squire Cottage, it is an old building with all the characteristics of such a building! Bed linen and towels are included in the price as are logs for the fire and all the electricity.  As there is no mobile signal here, there is a telephone in the farmhouse should you really need to use one. A cot is available and children and pets are welcome.

Flowers, bread, milk and eggs

Squire Cottage is the perfect place to curl up in front of a roaring log fire with a book after a brisk walk to the top of Caer Caradoc to watch the sun come up…

… and the garden is the perfect place to sit in peaceful and beautiful surroundings with beautiful views up the valley; an Easter Island head gazes too.  Or experience the clear night skies and myriad stars shining down on you with no light interference.

This cottage is a lovely old building, well equiped and very clean. It is in a beautiful location up a very quiet valley, with a gorgeous view and walks from the door. Becky and Peter were quick to respond to my emails and have a well thought out Covid protocol in place which was very reassuring.

‘Idyllic spot, gorgeous cottage’

‘The cottage itself is very special - it feels very ancient but has been modernised in all the right ways to make it warm and comfortable. Easy drives to Ludlow and Church Stretton - a great base for walking and to explore Shropshire and dip into Herefordshire and the Welsh borders.

Summer Getaway

We stayed at squire farm and absolutely loved it’. Sat outside every evening looking out to the hills; pure bliss. It was like being in your own nature program. The house was lovely with tonnes of character Nearest pub a few miles away close enough if you wanted to eat out now and then. Becky left us fresh milk, sourdough bread, eggs and butter which I thought was a lovely touch.
