A beautiful cottage in the heart of a lovely village. The cottage was very comfortablle with everything for a home from home feel. Sally was so helpful and provided a lovely welcome basket which was much appreciated. My husband and I would love to visit again but during the summer so that we could take a few more of the lovely walks that are possible right from the front door! A super bus service also runs from just outside the cottage to Ludlow and Shrewsbury.
My wife and I stayed here in September 2014 for a long weekend. This is an immaculately clean and well-presented two-bedroomed cottage in the heart of Church Stretton. Bea's Cottage is tastefully decorated [no eye-watering patterned wallpaper or psychedelic carpets] and superbly equipped with a nice lounge and a simple-to-operate TV and DVD player combined; it is both homely and comfortable . The cottage has one double bed and one single. The bathroom has a large corner bath/shower and soft, fluffy towels. Sally's 'welcome pack' of wine and nibbles was much appreciated and a typically thoughtful touch. The cottage is very conveniently located at the start of some wonderful walks in this relatively undiscovered area of England. We had warm and sunny weather whilst we were here and my wife, who had never been to or even heard of the Long Mynd, was stunned by its beauty. If you get the chance, do the classic Cardingmill Valley to Pole Bank walk and also ascend Caer Caradoc for some spectacular views. There is so much do do and see in this locality apart from the Long Mynd: Ludlow, Much Wenlock, Stokesay Castle, Wenlock Edge, Bridgnorth, Clun and Clun Forest - the list is almost endless. Staying at Bea's Cottage is the perfect place to stay. We cannot recommend this cottage too highly.

A well equipped cottage ideally placed for lovely walks, with good restaurants and delis nearby. Quiet location even though it is on the main road.
We, a family of 3 adults, had a very enjoyable break at this lovely cosy little cottage. It was one of the nicest holiday cottages we have ever stayed in. It was nice and clean, warmly decorated and felt homely the minute you walked in the front door. We were warmly welcomed by Sally's friend Denise. There was a lovely basket of goodies from Sally in the kitchen, milk in fridge plus tea and coffee for that first cuppa after a long journey. I met Sally and David during our stay and they were both lovely and helpful. The shower did stop working during our stay but it was replaced the following day by David with a brand new one, so no complaints - these things happen.
We found the location perfect for our needs. Parking was easy on the road around the corner. There was a bus stop outside with an hourly service to Shrewbury or Ludlow in the opposite direction which I took advantage of one day. Although the cottage is situated on the High Street, it is very quiet with not a lot of traffic passing by, so no problems sleeping with the bedroom window open.
The garden which was accessible from the kitchen and also the main bedroom was a good place to sit in the late afternoon with a drink.
Location of Bea's Cottage was ideal for our needs. About a 20 minute walk away was Carding Mill Valley- National Trust -which became a favourite place to visit during our stay.
We had a lovely weeks break at Bea's Cottage, the weather was hot and sunny. A beautiful area with stunning scenery and great walks, pubs and local shops nearby.If you are thinking about booking you won't be disappointed. Bea's Cottage is just as lovely as in the photos.
Bea's cottage is lovely, very well equipped and in a perfect location for exploring the surrounding Shropshire hills and Carding mill valley with numerous picturesque lovely walks from the doorstep. The cottage had everything we needed, it was cosy and comfortable and Sally was very welcoming and had thought of everything including a lovely welcome basket. The corner bath was very welcome after walking the hills. Our only small disappointment was the gardener had not been and the paved patio area was full of weeds and we do like sitting outside especially with the dog (whom was also made welcome with treats). We went to The Kings Arms across the road to sample the real ale and The Bucks Head where we had a lovely Sunday dinner. We also had two lovely meals in The Green Dragon in Little Stretton, these pubs are all dog friendly. We visited Ludlow and Shrewsbury, both charming historical nearby towns.
