The Property

Set in the popular South Shropshire village of Dorrington, you will find this super property tucked away in a quiet position, which offers easy access to both the stunning surrounding countryside, and the various facilities Dorrington has to offer. A paved pathway leads over the pretty fore-garden to the entrance door, which is sheltered by a storm porch. The hallway allows you time and space to remove your shoes and coat before entering the good sized living room. The living room is light and airy owing to the leaded window looking out to the front garden and has a neutral and tasteful decor, which is a feature running throughout the property. Our favorite room of the house however has to be the dining kitchen, fabulously appointed with a stylish, yet traditional, kitchen with wood effect worktops. The dining kitchen enjoys a lovely view to open countryside through a window and glazed door, both opening out to the garden. For the functional among you, it is worth noting that there is a wall mounted gas boiler, a useful under-stairs storage cupboard, space and plumbing for a washing machine, an electric cooker, extractor hood and space for a fridge freezer. For the more romantic, please note, that with space for a dining table and chairs this is sure to be the hub of the home. On the first floor you will find two good size bedrooms, the main bedroom being to the front of the property and the second bedroom to the rear. The landing provides access to, not only the useful airing cupboard, but the also the loft space which provides valuable extra storage. Completing the accommodation is the bathroom, appointed with a clean and fresh white suite comprising a wash basin, wc and paneled bath with an electric shower over, all complimented by a contemporary tiled finish. Outside the rear garden is a valuable addition to the property. The garden has a lovely open aspect and on a sunny day you will be sure to enjoy a glass of wine or two out here while taking in the view. The garden is completely enclosed so the children can play safely, and they might also like the slide! The is a paved patio which provides a seating area and a level lawn. For storage there is a timber garden shed. It is also worth noting that the property has the benefit of two parking spaces in the residents car park just a short distance from the house.

The village boasts of the popular Horseshoes’ Bar & Restaurant and ‘The Old Hall’ Persian Restaurant both located in the centre.

The Towns

Shrewsbury, the birth place of Charles Darwin, is a vibrant and lively town with a very cosmopolitan yet traditional atmosphere. The town’s 660 listed buildings are complimented by a host of trendy and sophisticated bars and restaurants, the medieval streets do however still retain many classic public houses and dining establishments. Built on the River Severn the town hosts the annual Shrewsbury Flower Show which is one of the largest and oldest horticultural shows in the country attracting over 100,000 visitors. Home to 4 shopping centres, 2 significant retail parks and countless independent retailers the town is an excellent place to enjoy some retail therapy. If you prefer to spend your time soaking up a little more culture the Theatre Severn provides many varied productions and entertainment, or perhaps a visit to the Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery or Shrewsbury Castle would be more fitting. Other places of note are ‘The Quarry’ a 29 acre riverside park, the largely unchanged Medieval Market place, Shrewsbury Abbey, the 9 bridges crossing the river Severn most notably the English and Welsh bridges, the Lord Hill’s Column – the largest free-standing Doric column in the world and the Shropshire Agricultural Showground which hosts one of the county’s most important agricultural shows. The town has many sporting and recreational facilities including Shrewsbury Town Football Club, who play their home games at the purpose built New Meadow stadium, Shrewsbury Rugby Club, Shrewsbury Rowing Club and Shrewsbury Motorcross Club to name but a few. There are also a number of popular golf clubs in and around the town, a good selection of Gymnasiums and Health Clubs and a thriving running scene.

Set against the scenic backdrop of the Shropshire Hills, Church Stretton is small market town with a population of around 3500. The town is also fondly referred to as 'Little Switzerland', you will understand exactly why from the second you start to get closer as you drive down the A49 into Church Stretton. Day or night you will be mesmerized by the beauty of the South Shropshire hillside as it gradually appears with its ominous splendour. If it is night time the twinkle of little houses nestled in the hills, with billowing smoke from the chimneys, will have you curious with whom might be living there and make you wish you were sitting next to the open fire looking out over the hillside. If it is during the day, you may catch sight of some hardy hikers scaling the top of Caradoc, The Ragleth, or the Longmynd, or perhaps a daring mountain biker will be catapulting down the fast array of mountain bike routes that makes this part of the world so desirable for bikers and hikers alike. Depending on the time of year you may also witness some skiers, snowboarders or sledgers enjoying the wonderful winters snow Church Stretton often gets, making it a tourist attraction all year round. Church Stretton has direct access to over 20 square miles of National Trust land. It is a haven for many who love the outdoors, paragliding, gliders, fell runners, photographers, artists, all flock to experience their love of the outdoors and capture it how they know best in this wondrous town. Perhaps this is all a little too energetic for you? Maybe if we come down from the hills you can have a leisurely stroll through the beautiful Rectory woods, and enjoy the stunning bluebells which have been photographed time and time again in all their glory creating magical pieces of art. All of which can be bought as a memorable keepsake in the form of postcards, greetings cards, pictures and photos from the National Trust shop, or in some of the shops in the town centre. Boasting many award winning coffee shops, quintessentially English tea rooms, cafes, restaurants, bars and public houses. Quaint little shops selling anything from brick-a-brac, to flowers, sweets, handmade chocolates, ice cream, vintage clothing, gifts, jewellery and so much more. On a more practical level, you also have some fantastic day to day facilities. A doctor’s surgery, 2 dentists, a leisure centre with swimming pool, a Primary and Secondary school, a library, tourist information centre, garages, petrol station, Co-op Supermarket, Spar Convenience store, banks, takeaways, and many other local businesses, independent stores, DIY shops and kitchen facilities. There are a huge amount of bus routes taking you to surrounding towns and villages meaning you are as connected as you can be, not to mention the train station with direct routes into Shrewsbury and Ludlow.
