Ryton Farm Holiday Cottages offers a choice of comfortable holiday accommodation to suit parties of two to four guests individually and larger groups if multiple cottages are rented together. Ideal for couples or groups of friends, the cottages provide the perfect place for a tranquil holiday in the very heart of rural Shropshire countryside, yet within easy reach of the many attractions the area has to offer.
The cottages accommodating two guests have either double or twin bedded rooms and cottages accommodating four guests have a double and twin bedroom with private facilities. Lavender featured in this advert sleeps 4 guests and has a twin room plus a flexible bedroom with a super-king size bed that can be split into two singles by arrangement, along with both a shower room and bathroom adding to the flexibility. All cottages have open plan living/dining rooms, well-equipped kitchens and plenty of private parking. Some of the two bedroom cottages are single storey and may be ideal for visitors with limited mobility.
Located in the quiet hamlet of Ryton, the cottages are just a short walk from the pub, one mile from Dorrington and six miles south of Shrewsbury, the county town of Shropshire. There are outstanding views from Ryton Farm, over the South Shropshire Hills and the area is fantastic for those who enjoy walking with plenty of footpaths and byways including Ryton Farms very own Barn Owl Trail allowing guests to walk around the farm's woods and lakes. Walking in Shropshire offers something for everyone with short strolls, long hikes across moorland, hill walks or gentle walks along the river or canal - with such a diverse range of scenery, this beautiful county cannot fail to please.
You will have no problem finding a peaceful spot for a picnic, or alternatively sample the friendly hospitality and superb food of the welcoming inns, tea shops cafes and restaurant.
Not only is Ryton Farm ideal as a relaxing retreat or a base for exploring the area but it also has much to offer those who enjoy fishing with five of its own exclusive well stocked pools. The most mature pool is brimming with carp and the smaller pool has an abundance of rudd, roach, tench, perch and bream. It is never overcrowded and fishing is payable upon arrival.
Whether you want to simply relax, fish, walk or get out and about visiting Shrewsbury, Ironbridge, historic market towns, the foodie heaven of Ludlow and historic country houses and gardens, Ryton Farm is a great place to base yourself.
