Birchope Byre is an idyllic peaceful retreat in the grounds of the owners former farmhouse.
Situated half a mile up a farm track on a hillside surrounded by rolling farmland, the cottage offers stunning views from the paved and gravel garden which is surrounded by shrubs and flowers - the perfect place to relax and unwind.
This recently converted stone byre with slate roof has been renovated to the highest standard whilst retaining lots of original character with oak beams, hand crafted oak and elm furniture and fittings, exposed stone wall and Cotswold flagstones in the kitchen/dining area.
The cosy log burning stove and full central heating make Birchope Byre ideal at any time of year - whether you are looking for a family holiday, a romantic break, or just somewhere to relax this is the ideal place.
Located in the South Shropshire Hills in an AONB, the village of Ratlinghope sits amongst a tranquil lush valley between Stiperstones (a dramatic quartzite ridge) and the Long Mynd (beautiful heather clad moorland owned by National Trust) - a perfect place with much to offer whether you are looking for a restful break or active holiday.
Its position is excellent for visiting Shrewsbury to the north, Ludlow to the south (with its fine selection of restaurants), Ironbridge Gorge to the east and the hills of Wales to the west.
The cottage may be unsuitable for the elderly, infirm or very young children due to the nature of stairs/steps inside, and garden steps down to the cottage. Please enquire for further details.
