About Wendy Lewis

Adrian and Wendy Lewis have been offering quality self catering accommodation for over 20 years in Church Stretton. We brought Eliza's cottage as a family home with 3 small little girls. The cottage was a delight to refurbish as it still contained a lot of the original features underneath the seventies style. Such as the original doors, the lounge fireplace, kitchen floor and upstairs windows, etc.

After 4 years we had sadly out grown the house Due to the character of the cottage and the perfect location for walking from the door and what Church Stretton and the surrounding area has to offer. We thought Eliza's cottage would be ideal to let out for holiday accommodation.

We moved to Comley, just outside Church Stretton in 2002. So we are only a few minutes away if you have any problems.

We love meeting people from all different walks of life and have made many great friends over the years of offering self catering. Many of guests come back regularly year after year..

Wendy Lewis purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Wendy Lewis chose Church Stretton

The many original features and Charter of the cottage and the lovely kitchen/ dining room are some of the many things I love about Eliza's cottage.

The location allows you to be a few hundred meters walk from the co-op supermarket (Very handy if you run out of milk!), market square or the Bucks head or a few hundred meters walk to rectory field opposite the church and then through Rectory Wood (the blue bells are a must to see in the spring) onto the slopes of the long Mynd.

Lovely cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We only booked two nights but would happily return for a longer stay. Close to the town centre - but away from the traffic etc. Ideal starting point for walking on the local hills or cycling round the area. Strongly recommended.

excellent in every respect

  • 5 of 5

Eliza Cottage is in an amazing location, a few minutes walk from the centre of the small town of Church Stretton, and with lovely walks in the Stretton Hills on the doorstep.

The cottage is immaculate with many thoughtful touches, everything we needed for a brilliant holiday. This is our second stay here and we will be back.

The perfect home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Eliza's Cottage many times and have never been disappointed. Upon arrival there are lovely brown eggs, a homemade sponge cake, tea, coffe and milk waiting for the tired travellers. The cottage is always immaculate, well stocked with necessities and the garden delightful. The location couldn't be better as everything is within walking distance. The Long Mynd and Rectory Woods are at your doorstep for wonderful walks and the town is also most convenient with a Co-op, bakery, organic food store and shops carrying gifts to take home. It is a great place to escape to.

Comfortable, cosy, ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Loved our week here - cosy woodstove for chilly evenings, house comfortable (lovely size for the two of us). Wendy & Adrian were great hosts, even meeting us off the train and picking up a few groceries. And it was easy to get to all kinds of walking trails plus a couple of minutes walk to pubs, restaurants, shops.
