A delightful period cottage sitting in a secluded location with amazing views over the valley nestling above Stokesay Castle. With approximately 2.6 acres you really can live the dream, off the beaten track and enjoy your very own small holding with space for chickens and paddocks for livestock.

The kitchen is dual aspect, enjoying far reaching countryside views and is fitted with an Aga range cooker and a selection of base and wall units, integrated fridge and freezer and a pantry cupboard. Off the living room there is also the rear entrance hall that leads to a downstairs shower room and cloakroom that has space for a washing machine. The spiral staircase in the living room rises to the first floor landing and the entire first floor has vaulted ceilings throughout with exposed timber frames affording a real sense of space and a light and airy feel. The master bedroom is a good sized double with a double aspect, the second bedroom is a double and the third bedroom would make an ideal study. The family bathroom is well appointed with panelling to the walls and a Velux window letting in plenty of light.

Grounds and Outbuildings

You come through a gate off the lane with a small paddock immediately to your right and a second larger paddock beyond, both of which have stock fencing and the outer property boundary takes you up into the edge of the adjacent woodland. The driveway leads to a turning circle in front of the cottage that will easily accommodate a number of vehicles. There is an enclosed section which has been set up as a vegetable patch with a timber shed, and there are two further enclosed areas currently housing chickens. The main rear garden to the cottage is partially laid to lawn with well stocked beds with a level area of patio perfect for taking in the evening sunshine.

To the front of the cottage there is a large timber shed that is currently set up as two stables and there is an additional timber shed for housing the feed and tack.


Mains electricity, mains water, oil fired boiler and a septic tank.


The cottage is on the Stokesay Castle estate with the castle being one of the finest surviving fortified manor houses in England that was largely built in its present form in the late 13th century by Laurence de Ludlow and is now under the management of English Heritage. From Stokesay Castle it is a short drive into Craven Arms to the north.

The property is located on the quiet edge of Craven Arms town centre. Craven Arms is a small town in south Shropshire with a train station on the Heart of Wales line with access to the Welsh Marches railway line which links it north and south to the larger towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow respectively. The town is enclosed to the north by the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and to the south is the fortified manor house of Stokesay Castle.

Craven Arms is a market town for the surrounding rural area, with a number of shops, bank, a supermarket and many commercial/light industrial businesses. It is also a visitor destination; being nearby to a number of attractions and being central for visitors to the area of outstanding natural beauty, it quite rightly describes itself as the Gateway to the Marches .
