Market Drayton, Shropshire, England
Standing on its own in open farmland with long views over fields and woods, this former shooting folly has instant appeal. The building is wonderfully quirky and unusual with a crenelated mock church tower at one end, a stepped gable at the other and in between a simple, brick and timbered thatched cottage.

The owners have restored the cottage with utmost care using high quality materials and have made imaginative use of the available space to provide comfortable and attractive rooms full of unusual features. A special bonus is the 'Urban cedar' hot tub in the garden.

Just returned from this perfect cottage in Shropshire. The folly was exactly as described in all of the literature and the photos really don't give this gem justice, firstly it was easy to find and then on arrival it was spotlessly clean. Our only neighbours...More

About the neighbourhood
Situated on the Shropshire/Staffordshire border, an hour and a half's drive from Birmingham and Manchester, The Shooting Folly is well-situated for exploring this attractive area. For walkers there is a network of public footpaths all round, the 7½ mile circuit from Cheswardine via Hales and the folly itself being mentioned in The Times article “A good walk” of 30 April 2011. The Shropshire Union canal and the Shropshire Cycleway are nearby and medieval Shrewsbury and Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage site are about half an hour each by car. The Stoke-on-Trent Potteries, walled city of Chester, Alton Towers theme park, Biddulph Grange (NT), Offa's Dyke Path on the Welsh border all make an ideal day outing.
