Lower Farm is a smallholding in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The house and outbuildings have been lovingly restored using sustainable materials and traditional building techniques. This has created two generously proportioned,luxury, airy, beamed, holiday cottages. You are welcome to wander over our four acres of pastureland, which are home to a dozen sheep. The vegetable garden, from which visitors enjoy produce in season, is run on organic principles.
Friday and Monday are normal changeover days, but short breaks of 2 nights or more are welcome in these Shropshire self catering cottages.
There are a variety of walks
starting from the property, ranging from a leisurely stroll to Shelve Pool (a SSSI due to the way the vegetation grows on the water surface), a trip round ancient mine remains
,All these walks are feasible without a car. For some themed itineraries of Shropshire see http://www.shropshiregold.co.uk/itineraries
