Cottage in Rhydycroesau, Nr. Oswestry, Shropshire, England - Rural Retreat For Two, Ideal For A Relaxing Break In The Midst Of Beautiful Countryside
About Jean Blake
I am Jean Blake. My husband and I, together with our three boys, moved to Tanygraig Ucha over twenty years ago. Six years ago we converted our stable into quality self-catering accommodation for guests so that they could also enjoy the beautiful rural surroundings that we have enjoyed for so long. We have recently both retired from school teaching and now have more time to give to our eleven acres on the Shropshire/Wales border. We are both keen gardeners and also enjoy walking with our dog Bracken in the surrounding countryside and travelling.

The Stable is a very tasteful conversion giving modern, comfortable living set in a beautiful, tranquil, rural environment.
A beautiful property with everything you need in a quiet, secluded location. Ideal for walking although the weather was pretty grim while we were there. Lovely gardens, very friendly owners. Thank you.
We had a lovely anniversary break. Couldn't of spent it anywhere more peaceful and beautiful.
We will be back again soon. We both feel so relaxed now. Jean and Nick made us feel at home.
A wonderful cottage, a perfect place for peace, tranquillity and relaxing
We had a fantastic stay at the stable. The cottage is beautiful and is fully equipped with everything you could need. A large basket of logs and kindling, milk in the fridge and cake in the tin awaited us on arrival. Great communication from Jean and Nick and a flawless check in/ check out
The views were stunning and the bird life wonderful to watch. I would highly recommend the cottage and we hope to return in the future.
