Suitable for two people, this one bedroom holiday cottage also has one bathroom set in the heart of the Shropshire farmland.

The Shooting Folly is as unique a holiday home that we have ever come across. Standing in the middle of the Shropshire farmland and with views over fields over fields and woods, it is romantic as the setting. Dating back to the 19th Century, once believed to be an old shooting lodge, the building retains features such as crenelated mock church tower at one end, a stepped gable at the other, and a timber thatched cottage in between.

To create a very homely hideaway, the house contains many mod cons, including a Cedar Hot Tub. The only bedroom features a double bed with views across the countryside, with a separate WC, and the kitchen is smart and made of solid oak with a granite work surface; it's well equipped with electric hob, oven and microwave. Guests will be sure to enjoy their time at The Shooting Folly.


This was our 4th or 5th stay, and it is still the most perfect place in the world. What could beat waking up to the sound of nothing but the occasional bleat or birdsong, opening the kitchen door to have a cow peering in at you as you eat porridge made from the most delicious fresh milk? How about spending a cosy evening in a genuine snug, with a wood burner if it's cold and a tv if you must? Or sleeping in a comfortable bed in a delightful room with lovely views to greet you when you draw the curtains? If a hot tub is your thing, the Shooting Folly even has one of those in the delightful garden, along with tables and chairs and even a bbq. An absolute dream with everything you need or want. The owners are so nice, friendly and helpful and the little touches they add just make this perfect. Thank you.
