The Pottery Holiday cottage nestles next to the Longmynd, which is a 6,000 acre area of moorland managed by the National Trust. An area of outstanding natural beauty, the scenery and views are stunning. And being just 5 minutes’ drive from the little market town of Church Stretton means that a supermarket, places to eat and other amenities are at hand too. Some guests come for an active walking holiday, others come to explore the area. Some just come to enjoy the views and relax by the woodburner. Whatever reason you have for coming, you are very welcome.
The Pottery is a 3 star self-catering holiday cottage with great views, nestling next to the Longmynd. The Long Mynd plateau rises to the west of The Pottery and the hills of Lawley and Caer Caradoc and Rageth are visible across the valley.

We do our best to be eco-friendly. The Pottery holiday cottage was renovated in 2004 to a high standard using eco-friendly materials where possible. The timber used was from a sustainable source and the worktops are made from recycled yogurt pots! Water is direct from our own supply on the Longmynd and heating and hot water is via solar panels, weather permitting.
The beautiful rural location is the main reason that many of our guests come to stay, but there are great things to do in the area too. Shrewsbury is 20 minutes drive away, Ludlow 25.
Shrewsbury is one of England’s finest medieval towns and is packed with timber-framed black and white buildings. Charles Darwin was born and educated in Shrewsbury and all around you will find reminders of his association with the town. As well as history, it has great shopping!… and all the sporting and other amenities that you’d expect to find in a county town.
Ludlow is often cited as the ‘gastro-centre’ of Britain and has a food centre to enjoy. There is also a castle and a characterful centre to explore.
Acton Scott working farm is less than 10 minutes’ drive. It was a setting for BBC2’s ‘Victorian Farm’ programme. It is an old style working farm with animals and old buildings and machinery.
Ironbridge is a world heritage site and has various working museums including the famous ‘Blists Hill’ working museum.
National Trust and English Heritage properties include Stokesay Castle, Attingham Park and Powis Castle.
We take weekly or fortnightly bookings only between the start of April and the end of August. Our changeover day during this time in Saturday.
