Hemford is a tiny village located at the top of the Hope Valley and is at the centre of some of Shropshire’s most spectacular scenery.

Perfect for parties of up to 5 people, Hillgate House was originally built in the 18th Century, when it was used as a farmhouse. Since then, it has been lovingly restored to retain many of its original features, such as exposed beams and a cast-iron stove, yet has been decorated in a modern, yet complementary style. There is a large, lawned garden from which you can enjoy the scenery provided by the Callow and the Corndon Hills, or simply kick back with a glass of wine and enjoy a spot of summertime dining. There are walking, cycling and horse-riding facilities close by and parking for up to 3 cars.


We had a lovely holiday. The atmosphere was very welcoming and we particularly enjoyed the garden. The cottage is very comfortable and stylish. The location is idyllic. Every effort was made to make our stay memorable.

I have been here quite a few times now and it is like walking into a well loved home.The owner has spent a lot of money on the property.The location is so relaxing and just what we needed.The garden is perfect. .
Mr Scott

The cottage and surroundings are beautiful and extremely dog friendly. The kitchen is very well fitted out with many more gadgets and utensils that we have come across in previous cottages. It really was a home from home stay set in a completely chill out place.
Mrs Dunning

Wonderfully dog friendly cottage! It has a large garden which the dogs and the grandchildren loved. Quiet location in beautiful countryside. We liked being woken up by the birds (especially the male pheasant). The owner is very helpful and should be proud of his property.
Mrs Wright

Hillgate House is a lovely home away from home. It has a nice secure garden for our two dogs, in a good location with hours of dogs walks if you turn right out of the gate. The beds are comfortable and have good quality bedding. There is a nice wood and coal burning stove in the front room and storage heaters to heat the rest of the house. We found the house to be very warm and cosy and can not wait to go back.
