Lower Farm Holidays
Shelve, Minsterley, Shropshire
Lower Farm Cottage Holidays in Shelve, between Bishops Castle and Minsterley, offers 2 beautiful self catering cottages in a wonderful part of Shropshire. We are the perfect base from which to explore the local and surrounding area. A footpath runs through our grounds as part of the Flenny Bank walk and also walking with Off a route No13 giving access to loads of walking options. We are not far from a main road, but well off the beaten track!

The cottage consists of a light and airy open living area with exposed beams, wood burning stove and flat screen TV. The fully fitted kitchen/dining area comes with oven, hob, microwave, fridge, and dishwasher. There is 1 double bedroom, shower room with hand basin and WC.

We provide a small welcome basket with sachets of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, sugar, biscuits and home made preserves. “Fruits of the farm” are available – fresh soft fruits and eggs in particular – dependent upon season.

Local AreaWe are situated in the lee of the Stiperstones – an 8 mile long quartzite rocky ridge with great views into both Wales and across to the Long Mynd and beyond. The Bog Visitor Centre (famous for enormous delicious slices of home made cake) are just a half hour walk away across fields. We keep a wide range of guides to places to visit near here, from ancient bronze age remains, old lead mines, lovely National Trust and English Heritage places, mediaeval towns, vineyards – in fact loads of information for you.
Try some unusual places – the grave of the last Sineater in England at Ratlinghope, or the Land of Lost Content in Craven Arms for household objects you thought you’d never see again, take a trip down a disused lead mine at Snailbeach or see how the miners lived at Blakemoor Cottages, visit the Devil’s Chair (but not when he is sitting on it) or have a trial gliding flight from the Long Mynd. Visit some of the extraordinary Yew trees like the 2,700 year old one UK champion at Norbury Church with a girth of 11m 75cm or the Twelve Apostles at Acton Scott. There is so much variety in and around the Shropshire Hills.
