Tranquility and calm, listen to the relaxing sounds of nature, bird song, the buzzing of bees, the bleat of lambs, the call of deer in the forest; watch the brilliant colours of wild flower meadows ripple in the breese, marvel at star filled skies; enjoy the cool shade of the forest and the shelter it gives from the raging storms of the outside world. Enjoy the 'Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', or hundreds of miles of long and short distance footpaths, cycle trails and bridleways, connecting traffic free to the cottage door. Including the 'Abberley and Malvern Hills Geopark Way' (which runs along our drive), Sustrans' Mercian Way NCR45, The Sabrina Way, the Severn Way, the North Worcestershire Walk, the Jack Mytton Way and many shorter trails. For a more relaxing mode of travel catch the historic Severn Valley (steam) Railway at Bewdley or Arley (featured in numerous films), glimpsing the elephants in the West Midlands Safari Park, or alighting at picturesque Bridgnorth with its leaning castle keep and dramatic funicular cliff railway. Savour exquisite food in the first British 'Slow City', Ludlow, with its medieval market at the castle gate. Feel the thrill of (industrial) revolution at Ironbridge World Heritage Site, or the pathos of the now faded wealth that revolution brought to Great Whitley with its golden dome and spectacular fountain.
Location AccessFarm Buttonoak
Step back in time to the heart of England's psyche, that buccolic land of past glories. Just west of the Black Country and south of Ironbridge, across the River Severn, the land that Tolkin called 'Middle Earth', with it's Bagginswood, and 'tower between two hills'. The wyreforestcottage (Google it) is half a kilometre from the nearest tarmac, with ample private parking. The Byre is wheelchair accessible, as are parts of the forest.
