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.


perfect retreat
lovely place very secluded brilliant for walkers, birdwatchers or those who need to get away from it all.

Third visit to Creagh Dhu
This is our idea of heaven! The cottage is comfortable and the location stunning, so we keep coming back! It's an easy walk up to the Stiperstones from the door and the Long Mynd is a short drive (or a longish walk). Good food at The Stiperstones Inn and The Bridges and we love tea and cake at The Bog Visitor Centre. The shop in Stiperstones sells everything!

A wonderful, relaxing place to stay and unwind . The views from the house and garden are spectacular. Walks from the house, onto the Stiperstones answer Shropshire Way. Would definitely recommend .

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.
