About Albion Hayes Cottage

Albion Hayes Cottage is a whitewashed farmhouse set back from a private country lane with no passing traffic to disturb the peace. It's tucked away in the glorious Shropshire countryside, about a 10-minute walk from Bomere Heath where there is a fish and chip shop, small supermarket, tennis courts, children's play park and the friendly Red Lion pub. The two-bedroom cottage sleeps up to four people (and one dog) and is ideal for couples and friends as well as families.

Shropshire is a bit of a secret gem. This quiet, unassuming county is a stunning combination of lush, green countryside and historic towns and chocolate box villages. You're never far from a beautiful view, a welcoming pub or coffee shop, or a vibrant market. The country town of Shrewsbury is around six miles or a 15-minute drive from the cottage, and it's a fantastic place to start your holiday. Not only is it full of shops and other amenities that you may need for your self-catering holiday (such as a visitor information centre), but impressive buildings like Shrewsbury Castle, Shrewsbury Prison, St Mary's Church and a wealth of black-and-white Tudor timber buildings housing places to eat, drink and shop. Shrewsbury is a real treat for foodies with its award-winning Market Hall where you will find street food venues, cafes, bars and stalls (it won Britain's favourite Market 2018 and was a finalist in 2019).

You won't run out of footpaths and cycling routes when you're here. The long-distance Offa's Dyke footpath passes close to the town, spanning the former border between England and Wales, and there's an excellent route around Caer Caradoc. The Haughmond Hill Abbey Walk is nice and easy, or take the Wrekin Hill Circular route for panoramic views over Shropshire and the Welsh Borders. If you are looking for somewhere to walk the dog, Pim Hill is sure to get those tails wagging and is a 20-minute walk from the cottage (or 3-minute car ride). Cyclists are also catered for with a variety of routes on-and-off the road and fishing can be arranged on the nearby Leaton Knolls Estate. Equestrians know Shropshire for the superb quality of its bridleways, and there are half-a-dozen stables and pony trekking centres in a small radius of the cottage.

Day trips can include shopping and lunch in Ludlow; walking around Hawkstone Park and follies; gliding at Long Mynd; sightseeing in Oswestry and Ironbridge; wandering around NT Attingham Park Estate with its vast park land which is home to deer (the parkland is dog-friendly); relaxing on a Sabrina Boat Trip exploring the River Severn; and visiting country parks and other grand houses in the area - basically, as much adventure as you can squeeze into your stay! At the end of a fun day full of activity, sit outside and stargaze in clear night skies, or light the log burner and settle down to watch a film - simple pleasures that mean the world when you have the time to appreciate them.
