This detached, old miners cottage in Stiperstones in Shropshire can sleep up to five people in two bedrooms.

The Wilderness is a charming, detached old miners’ cottage at the foot of the Stiperstones Hill range in Shropshire. The cottage is mostly set over the ground floor with a first floor family room featuring a king-size double bed and a single day bed. There is also a ground floor room with adult bunks and a family bathroom, meaning the cottage can sleep four people. You will also find a well-equipped kitchen and a sitting room boasting a cosy woodburning stove and a dining area. Outside there is off road parking for four cars, a front lawned garden with a patio and furniture and a rear courtyard with more outdoor furniture. The Wilderness truly is a wonderful base for a holiday exploring Shropshire, all year round!


Stayed at this beautiful cottage for a week. Interior is cosy, spotlessly clean with all amenities including a dish washer & washing machine. The dogs loved the big spacious garden and the long walks in the breathtaking countryside of shropshire. It was like a home from home & our week went far too quickly. The owner left us a delicious cake for our arrival which was a lovely personal touch. The pub and shop are within 10 minutes walking distance . The pub serves superb food, we dined there every day. We wanted a tranquile holiday, to get us away from the hustle & bustle of city life & thats exactly what we got. We came home totally refreshed. If like us you love your dogs like family and you want them to join you on your holiday, i highly recvomend this dog friendly holiday home. You and your dogs will love it.

it was very peaceful and quiet at The Wilderness and there was plenty to see in area. The Wilderness was very cosy and had everything we needed was there sitting in garden watching wild life rabbits in field and squirrels playing

Loved The Wilderness, what a place to stay. Lovely cottage. Loved the walk just outside backdoor. Fab local pub, good food.
Mrs Andrews

We particularly liked being able to shut out the bad weather after a long walk with the dog and sitting listening to the wind and rain outside whilst being safe and warm inside. Very relaxing and unwinding
Miss Broome

The cottage is in a wonderfully quiet setting, just what we were hoping for. A very well equipped cottage with lots of information leaflets of the local area. There were some amazing walks and sites locally. Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
