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.


The cottage has such a lovely feel about it and you immediately felt at home. The garden was superb. It was spotlessly clean and had a rustic cottage feel - a typical country cottage. We loved the remoteness albeit there was a school just up the road, it was peaceful, full of wildlife and some superb walks although because the weather was so nice we mostly enjoyed chilling in the garden watching the farmer at work and the wildlife.
Mrs Longworth

We liked the peace and privacy of the cottage and the general isolation. Being able to let the dogs run free in the garden was a bonus. The cottage was well appointed and very comfortable; it felt like home almost straight away.
Dr Wilson

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.
Mr Spencer

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.
