Set in the grounds of the magnificent Chillington Hall and estate, this beautiful detached cottage, formerly the gardener’s residence, has been transformed into an amazing holiday home that provides excellent quality, superb furnishings and cosy woodburners. The estate itself lies on the Staffordshire/Shropshire borders, providing a good base from which to discover both areas. Guests are able to explore the many public footpaths and bridleways that cross the 4000-acre estate (maps provided). On certain days of the year, the grounds are open to the public so they can explore the beautiful hall, the Capability Brown landscaped park and woodlands, as well as the 60-acre pool (see website for details). Attractions nearby include Penkridge Wharf and The Shropshire Union Canal, the RAF Museum at Cosford, The Potteries, Ironbridge Gorge Museum, Dudley Zoological Gardens, Stafford Castle, National Sea Life Centre, Black Country Living Museum, Severn Valley Heritage Railway and the Hoo Zoo and Dinosaur World. Birmingham is just 30 minutes’ away, with train services running from Codsall, just 2½ miles away. With the historic towns of Ludlow and Shrewsbury within easy driving distance, it truly is a perfect base. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
