Willowbatch is a Swiss style chalet type house pleasantly situated in an “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty” in the beautiful Carding Mill Valley nestling in the lee of the Long Mynd near Church Stretton. To reach us, turn from Shrewsbury Rd in Church Stretton into Carding Mill Valley and keep driving for 1/2 mile until you see Willowbatch on the left hand side.
The centre of Church Stretton with a selection of shops, pubs and restaurants is just a short walk away. Shrewsbury, Ludlow and Much Wenlock are all less than 20 minutes away by car, the Welsh border is literally just over the hill, so as well as exploring 6000 acres of the Long Mynd, there is no shortage of interesting days out that are within easy reach. Ironbridge and Pontsycyllte are also only a short drive away.
The National Trust operates a café and an educational centre a few hundred yards away, so local information literally is right at hand! The area is also a fascinating geological study with the Long Mynd pre-dating any fossils at all, the Stiperstones being a Tin and Lead mining complex – now defunct – at the turn of the last century and the Wenlock Edge once being the bed of a prehistoric ocean South of the Equator!
The apartment consists of the centrally heated ground floor of the house, which is set up as a self contained one bed roomed apartment comprising one double bed room, lounge, kitchen and toilet/shower room.
Free car parking is available outside the house, so no problems there!
During the Summer, following the (not obligatory!) after dinner stroll in the Valley, why not sit outside with a coffee or a glass of wine, listen to the stream and just enjoy the evening?
