This quiet extremely well equipped studio is spacious and comfortable with stunning views. The surrounding area is perfect for "from the door" bike rides and walks. The stiperstones are just 10 minutes away by bike and the lanes, tracks and bridleways of Shropshire are excellent fun and very quiet. There are many additonal options by driving just a short distance to the Long Mynd or Wenlock Edge or across in to the Welsh borders. There are so many options for rides from here that we will definitely be back to sample more.
Having recently spent four nights staying in The Stiperstones Studio, (perfect for 2) we can report that everything exceeded our expectations. This first class, stylish accommodation, set in a more remote area of Shropshire is spotless, beautifully kept and provides peace and quiet, views, walks and interesting towns and villages within driving distance. There is a secluded patio set amongst a cottage garden beyond the veg plot. It was lovely to sit there admiring the views over the fields, the black and white cows and the hills beyond. We had a very warm welcome from our hosts who provided us with a starter pack and later delicious salad leaves fresh from the garden.
I particularly appreciated the small things - plenty of towels, t towels and all the items needed to wash up etc! Fully equipped - there was nothing we needed that we did not find there. The bed was very comfortable and the bedding good quality.( View from the bed was rather addictive)!
A lovely place to watch the sunset from is outside the Callow Hill pub. A must for visits further afield - Ludlow on a market day. Go up church tower,(small charge). Its worth it. Also Ironbridge. From the Ironbridge walk upwards through any of the small alleyways on the hillside passing tiny odd shaped cottages, pubs, churches etc, to get a real feel of the place.
Would thoroughly recommend Lower Shelve Farm for an escape from the stresses of life.
We stayed in the studio apartment and were a bot worried about the size as it was a studio but there was no need it was large and comfortable with an amazing sofa. The rooms were cleaned to an exceptionally high standard and all the fittings were modern. There were information packs provided for all types of activities and if you are into walking there is a path straight from the back into fields and public walkways.
The owners were lovely and provided tea, milk, biscuits and some fresh salad leaves from their garden not to mention what looked like homemade marmalade. The kitchen was fully equipped like your kitchen at home and not all like a self catering apartment which can sometimes be sparse.
Only negative was that the heaters did not seem to heat up very much but the studio was warm enough and it didn't bother us. Overall an excellent experience at a great price and i have very high standards.
The Studio at Lower Farm was a great find - serendipity indeed. Our hosts attended to our every need, advising us on walks, eating places, trips in the area and recommendations for local hostelries! My wife even came back with some plants donated from the gardens. The accommodation was fully equipped, including Sky TV which we did not feel the need to sample, it being sufficient to admire the views of Stiperstones in the far distance. A peaceful retreat ideally located for both short and long stays. Thank you Jean and Paul - Morris on.
The views are wonderful, the countryside idyllic, the accommodation is first class. For a couple who like some space "Cranberry Cottage" is warm, cosy and private. Complete with a separate bedroom (the doonas are beautifully warm) bathroom, lounge/dining & a fully equipped kitchen it is all you need for a great self-catering holiday. We explored the countryside, ate at small pubs, local cafes and a one star Michelin restaurant, visited castles, Stately piles and met lots of friendly locals. Our only regret is we couldn't stay longer!
