The Lavender Cottage provides self-catering accommodation in a beautiful rural setting with fantastic views and a tranquil atmosphere. The cottage has been extensively renovated to thoroughly modern standards. Patio doors open out on to a lovely south facing terrace and the garden stretches out to views over open fields and beautiful Astley Abbotts village. National cycle routes, public footpaths and the historic towns of Bridgnorth, Ironbridge & Much Wenlock are within easy reach.
A superb barn conversion, set amidst beautiful rolling Shropshire countryside, just two miles from the pretty market town of Bridgnorth, eight miles from the lovely priory, shops and pubs at Much Wenlock and only six miles from the historic town of Ironbridge. The building was formerly used as part of a pick your own lavender farm as a tearoom and for gardening classes run by my grandmother but has now been converted, decorated and furnished to a high standard as a holiday cottage.
The cottage offers warm, welcoming accommodation that is an ideal place for relaxing and recharging the batteries. The cottage is surrounded by its own private garden which is visited by lots of wildlife such as hedgehogs, woodpeckers, pheasants, tree creepers, owls and ravens to name a few. In summary the cottage includes:
• One superking bedroom with en-suite (can be a twin on request);
• One king bedroom;
• One twin bedroom (with single & pull out single);
• Further large family bathroom (separate shower and bath);
• Fully fitted open plan kitchen-living room;
