This unique wooden cottage is located on a working farm in Leighton in Shropshire and sleeps two people.

Shepherd's Retreat is a unique wooden cottage with accommodation spread over two buildings in a farmyard location on a 100 acre working cattle farm on the outskirts of the Shropshire village of Leighton near to Ironbridge. Boasting one double bedroom, a kitchen and a sitting area with woodburner in the hut and a shower room a short walk away, this cottage can sleep two people. To the exterior of the cottage is off road parking for 1 car and a sitting area with outdoor furniture and countryside views. Just four miles from the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, Shepherd's Retreat is a wonderful holiday cottage for anyone wishing to explore this part of the country.


Shepherd's Retreat was a lovely, tranquil and pretty place to stay. A very functional abode with good access by foot to places such as The Wrekin and Ironbridge. It definitely lives up to its name and would recommend it to anyone who wants a bit of time to unwind and relax.
