A well equipped cottage ideally placed for lovely walks, with good restaurants and delis nearby. Quiet location even though it is on the main road.
We, a family of 3 adults, had a very enjoyable break at this lovely cosy little cottage. It was one of the nicest holiday cottages we have ever stayed in. It was nice and clean, warmly decorated and felt homely the minute you walked in the front door. We were warmly welcomed by Sally's friend Denise. There was a lovely basket of goodies from Sally in the kitchen, milk in fridge plus tea and coffee for that first cuppa after a long journey. I met Sally and David during our stay and they were both lovely and helpful. The shower did stop working during our stay but it was replaced the following day by David with a brand new one, so no complaints - these things happen.
We found the location perfect for our needs. Parking was easy on the road around the corner. There was a bus stop outside with an hourly service to Shrewbury or Ludlow in the opposite direction which I took advantage of one day. Although the cottage is situated on the High Street, it is very quiet with not a lot of traffic passing by, so no problems sleeping with the bedroom window open.
The garden which was accessible from the kitchen and also the main bedroom was a good place to sit in the late afternoon with a drink.
Location of Bea's Cottage was ideal for our needs. About a 20 minute walk away was Carding Mill Valley- National Trust -which became a favourite place to visit during our stay.
We had a lovely weeks break at Bea's Cottage, the weather was hot and sunny. A beautiful area with stunning scenery and great walks, pubs and local shops nearby.If you are thinking about booking you won't be disappointed. Bea's Cottage is just as lovely as in the photos.
Bea's cottage is lovely, very well equipped and in a perfect location for exploring the surrounding Shropshire hills and Carding mill valley with numerous picturesque lovely walks from the doorstep. The cottage had everything we needed, it was cosy and comfortable and Sally was very welcoming and had thought of everything including a lovely welcome basket. The corner bath was very welcome after walking the hills. Our only small disappointment was the gardener had not been and the paved patio area was full of weeds and we do like sitting outside especially with the dog (whom was also made welcome with treats). We went to The Kings Arms across the road to sample the real ale and The Bucks Head where we had a lovely Sunday dinner. We also had two lovely meals in The Green Dragon in Little Stretton, these pubs are all dog friendly. We visited Ludlow and Shrewsbury, both charming historical nearby towns.

We had a wonderful week in this clean, beautifully furnished, well equipped, comfortable cottage. It is particularly good for anyone arriving without a car ie by train because of it's town centre location. At the same time, it is surprisingly quiet with little traffic noise. The welcome pack was generous and much appreciated after a long journey. The owner goes the extra mile by providing a large vase of scented lilies and stocks in the living room.The location was very handy for all amenities eg shops, library, pubs, cafes etc of which Church Stretton has plenty and also handy for all the many walks in lovely countryside. Also,within an hour of arrival I managed to buy a book I had been looking for for ages in a book sale in the church hall across the road! ( 'The House in Dormer Forest' by Mary Webb).
