Idyllic romantic eco build in 2019 set in three acres of grounds, a short drive from Ellesmere. The perfect bolthole to relax, unwind, experience the culture or be active in Shropshire and its borders.

Enjoy this peaceful location within walking distance to Colmere and a short drive from Ellesmere, surrounded by rolling countryside to explore.

The owners also live on-site, though privacy is assured. The former granary has been sympathetically created with the original roof, hand-made bricks and has eco credentials, with all your creature comforts including air source underfloor heating and a cosy wood burner. As you enter this stylish detached property, hang up your coats and walk into the lounge/kitchen/diner with lovely views from the feature windows and bi-folding doors. The kitchen area is well-equipped with the electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. Maybe enjoy some seasonal produce from the gardens as part of your meal, whilst you enjoy a meal at the dining table perfectly positioned by the picture window to embrace the view over the garden and countryside. After a full day out relax in the lounge on the comfy sofa, plan your holiday activities, listen to music, watch a film on TV or lose yourself in a good book. Open the bi-folding doors to really let the outside in or for cosy nights in, light the wood burner and snuggle up on the sofa. The bedroom has been designed for a good night’s sleep with luxury linen on the comfortable king-size bed, and enjoy a leisurely shower in the stylish en-suite shower room and WC.

Aptly named Bolthole to escape from it all. Spotlessly clean on arrival and superbly built and furnished accommodation. Although on owners land and close to their house you have loads of your own outside space to enjoy. Great location for exploring Shropshire and parts of Wales.

This cottage is possibly the best one we have stayed at. It is in the most peaceful and tranquil surroundings with lovely walks on your doorstep. The cottage is just amazing with light streaming in through all of its floor to ceiling windows-even on a couple of wet days you felt you were sitting outside with the birds and squirrels. Jane and GeoRead morerge were perfect hosts and thanks to George for the information on his plants. Had a fantastic week we will definitely return in the near future.
