Welcome to Quilmore Cottage
A unique, secluded, self-catering cottage for two in the South Shropshire Hills
Set in the designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Quilmore Cottage is a detached property nestled high on the side of Black Hill, just a few miles from the village of Clun. Surrounded by farmland and outstanding views, our cottage offers you a restful getaway for a weekend or longer. The cottage is very private, with its own terrace and a fabulous hot tub for you to relax and gaze out over the countryside to the hills beyond. From the gently bubbling, warm water, you can see Clee Hill, 20 miles away and to the left, Caer Caradoc at Church Stretton. Behind the cottage, high above the farmland are the majestic pines of Black Hill. A haven for wildlife, where red deer roam and birds of prey soar high above your head. The night sky is clear of light pollution and the view of the stars on a clear night is something you will never forget.
The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, with oven, dishwasher, microwave and cooking utensils. The downstairs shower room and toilet has plenty of fluffy white towels and there are toweling robes to warm you after a dip in the hot tub. There is a satellite TV, DVD and CD player and a lovely log burner to curl up in front of on chilly evenings. There is no WiFi and mobile phone signal can be quite limited but this adds to the complete feeling of switching off from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The galleried bedroom has a king size bed and is accessed by a wrought iron spiral staircase.
If you can tear yourselves away from the tranquility, there is plenty to do in the surrounding area. Country pubs offering locally brewed ales, cider and good home cooking. For the more active visitors there are miles of walks straight from the cottage door.
Castles dotted along the border of England and Wales. Newly marked mountain bike routes run through the woods at Hopton just a couple of miles away. For the trail runners and long distance walkers there are miles of traffic free routes and the famous Jack Mitton Way runs right through Clun, linking the Shropshire Way and Offa’s Dyke Path. History enthusiasts and food lovers will enjoy the timber framed buildings of Ludlow, its ruined castle and Michelin star restaurants.
If you care to travel a little, in under and hour, you can take a trip to the RAF Museum at Cosford and see the Cold War Exhibition and many wartime aircraft, lovingly restored. For the gardeners, David Austin Roses at Albrighton is a must and a fabulous day out. If you are still looking for something to do, the Brecon Beacons, Snowdonia and the beautiful award winning beaches of West Wales are all within a 2 hour drive from the cottage.
