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.

The space

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;
• Wood burning stove in the living area;
• South facing terrace and private garden;
• 32” TV, Wifi, books and games.

Guest access

The cottage is surrounded by a private garden and lovely terrace overlooking the beautiful views across Astley Abbotts. Outdoor garden furniture is provided which is ideal for picnics and al-fresco dining in the all-day sun. Generally unless walking or cycling, you will need a car for getting around. The cottage has room for up to four cars if needed.

We had a wonderfulp stay in the cottage with really stunning views. Duncan is a very good host who replies to any question very quickly. The directions to reach the cottage were clear and everything was very well prepared for our stay. The cottage is very well equipped with a nice and spacious living room, good kitchen and even two bathrooms. The only thing which is good to know is that the walls between the rooms are a little thin. No problem with our family, but good to realize. We would definitely go back here if we were in the area again!

Beautiful cottage - well stocked and a stunning location. Very warm and cosy but with plenty of mod-cons. Hosts were great and very quick to respond.

We had a brilliant family gathering at Lavender Cottage. It was cosy, comfortable and well-equipped. There is such a lot to do in the local area and the views from the house are beautiful.

Fantastic stay at the Lavender Cottage, situated in a quiet and peaceful location in a small village. The cottage is wonderful and very well laid out inside. Was big enough for the 3 of us, which was fantastic. Close drive to local towns and Telford, including Sainsbury’s Supermarket. Will visit again if revisiting the area, thank you for letting us stay!

My friend and I had a great short stay here with our young children. Gorgeous surroundings and quiet, tiny village. Well equipped and decorated, travel cot available and welcome basket with snacks and jam which was great. Essentials like tea and coffee supplied. Gated entrance so felt safe for children to play outside cottage. We had a Sainsbury's online shop delivered which was perfect as no village shops. Great stay!
