Sleeping four people in two bedrooms, this semi-detached cottage is a couple of miles from Ratlinghope, with outstanding views and good walking from the door.

Creagh Dhu is a lovely welcoming semi-detached cottage in a rural location just outside Ratlinghope village, near the Stiperstones and Long Mynd, 7 miles from Church Stretton. There is a king-size double bedroom and a second bedroom which can be offered as a twin or a super king-size double. Downstairs is a welcoming open plan living area with kitchen, pantry, dining area and sitting area, and a Clearview woodburning stove. Outside, along with off road parking for two cars, is a front garden area with decking, furniture and fine views. With the Shropshire countryside on the doorstep, Creagh Dhu makes a wonderful year-round retreat for walkers, couples or families alike.


Fantastic cottage with views never equalled on a any holiday we have had before. Have found Sykes the best by far of all the agencies we have used, with your attention to detail and helpful staff.
Mr Bindon

The views from the cottage were spectacular, the log fire was a bonus and the large screen to project films and TV was excellent.
Mrs Cooke

"Excellent location and helpful owner. Generally a very well presented, equipped and comfortable cottage."
Mrs Johnson

The location is perfect, so scenic and peaceful. The cottage is very well equipped, incredibly tastefully decorated and is probably less like a holiday cottage and more like a home as it has such a warmth to it. I was in no hurry to leave it to return to my home.
Mrs Muggridge

Quiet location with superb views from the cottage. We would like to stay at this cottage again.
Ms Eke
