About Sharon

We have spent the last 6 months carrying out a full renovation on Hollywell Cottage, when we bought the cottage we knew it was “The One”, the views alone are out of this world but now the cottage really has been brought back to life. Having spared no expense on the fixtures and fittings we know how important it is to get every detail perfect for your holiday.

Even though we are new to the holiday letting market, we have ourselves rented holiday lets on lots of occasions and feel we have a wealth of information to turn a good holiday into a great one. The luxuries and warm welcome we provide are the start of it, but we will go that extra mile to make sure everything is how we would expect when we first arrive at a holiday cottage

Sharon purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Sharon chose All Stretton

We bought the property because we fell in love with the views along with the feeling that we had stepped back in time to a less hurried way of life in and around All Stretton. Making for a very relaxing time. Even though we have a rural location we do benefit from being 2 miles away from Church Stretton, with a Co-op, banks, doctors, tea rooms, antique shops and local markets. We are in walking distance of the Long Mynd and of the Batch Valley which is a hidden gem less crowded then the Carding Mill Valley.

What makes this cottage unique

The Location, its very hard to put into words just what a wonderful spot Hollywell Cottage is in. Come and see for yourself, sit back and enjoy the views we fell in love with.

Perfect from start to finish can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous week at Hollywell Cottage. We arrived to find homemade apple cake and clotted cream which was delicious and made us feel very welcomed. The welcome pack provided was the best we have ever recieved, it was well thought out and included everything that we needed for breakfast the next morning: eggs, bread, milk, butter, tea, coffee, cereal, juice and much more. The wine chilling in the fridge was a lovely suprise after a long days travel.

The cottage is lovely and in a beautiful setting, clean and tidy with comfy beds and crisp linen and towels. The well equipped kitchen included everything we could wish for.

The lovely walks from the door step is a bonus and sitting on the terrace enjoying the beautiful garden and views to die for was relaxing.

We highly recommend this luxury cottage and can't wait to plan our next stay, thank you.

Car: recommended

The Shropshire Hills area is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), in the English county of Shropshire. It is located in the south of the county, extending up to its border with Wales. The Long Mynd is a large and long plateau sitting just above the cottage, while the rugged outline of the Stiperstones ridge is unmistakable. Together, they make up the largest area of heathland in the Shropshire Hills. Come late summer these hilltops are a sea of purple and not to be missed. Along with the heather a variety of other plants flourish here including bilberry (known locally as whinberry), and this in turn attracts many insects and birds – look out for a green hairstreak butterfly or stonechat on the gorse.

As well as a wealth of wildlife, the area is steeped in history and folklore. Shooting Box is one of sixteen Bronze Age burial mounds found on the Mynd and the 5,000 year old ridge-way, the Portway, once carried Neolithic traders high and dry above the wet and wooded valleys. During the 1870s the Stiperstones area was one of Britain’s main sources of lead. Remains of this once thriving industry are scattered along the western slopes of the Stiperstones. Both Mary Webb and Malcolm Saville set their stories in these hills, and there is many a myth and tall tale to be told.

There are lots of leaflets and books describing walks in this area and there are miles of public footpaths to follow.

Great views and no driving, map reading or parking to worry about!

The Shropshire Hills Shuttle bus which passes the cottage, runs at the weekends and Bank Holiday Mondays from Easter. You can sit back and enjoy breathtaking views.

A warm welcome awaits you at the Bog Visitor Centre, along with home-made cakes, local crafts and displays on the history of the area, the folklore, where to walk and much more.

Ruined engine houses, blacksmith shops and tall chimneys tell of a time when the lead mines of this area were the most productive in Europe. Underground trips into Day Level are available when the Snailbeach Mine Visitor Centre is open.

At the heart of the Shropshire Hills, Church Stretton the picturesque market town has been a popular visitor destination since Edwardian times. The town centre is full of traditional shops to tempt you – from tea rooms to a three-storey antiques emporium. Church Stretton is a magnet for walkers and a “Walkers are Welcome” town. There are lots of other activities to do including geocaching, paragliding and archery. Electric bikes are also available for hire.

Stokesay Castle is probably the best preserved medieval fortified Manor Houses in England, built in the late 13th Century is well worth a visit.

Ludlow is a thriving medieval market town and an architectural gem with a lively community feel, busy with events and festivals throughout the year. The historic town centre is situated on a cliff above the River Teme and is surrounded by the unspoilt and beautiful countryside of south Shropshire and the Welsh Marches.
