Details

Keepers Cottage nestles on south side of 50-acres of Oak woodland offering really relaxing holidays in Shrewsbury.

The Keeper's Cottage is an enchanting cottage tucked away in the south facing corner of Soulton Wood and enjoying a open country aspect. Accessed off half a mile of private lane which passes Soulton Brook and winds through Soulton Wood.

The stone core of the cottage dates from the 1500s, but benefits from brick and timber extensions. From the sitting/dining room - which opens onto the private garden - with its open fire, guests can observe the plentiful wildlife and the total quiet of this secluded location.

While the cottage is big enough to accommodate six (two double rooms and a twin room), it is equally perfect for a couple seeking a total escape in a romantically secluded location.

This self catering cottage is particularly magical in bluebell time (April into May) and the Autumn 'season of mists and mellow fruitfulness' when the woodland leaves are golden and scarlet.

Woodland and riverside walks, CH, TV, fires in season. Evening meals available at Soulton Hall.

Shrewsbury, Chester, Ironbridge, North Wales, Potteries - all within easy reach.

FOR THOSE TRAVELLING BY CAR...

For SatNav, our post code is SY4 5RS.

...from the North

From Manchester, Liverpool and the north it is advisable to travel via Chester and Whitchurch. Leave Chester by the A41. At Whitchurch follow the signs for the A49 to Shrewsbury (DO NOT take the B5476 to Wem). Turn right off the A49 onto the B5065 at Prees Green. Proceed down the B5065 for about two miles. Soulton Hall is on the left, shortly after a humpbacked bridge.

...from the South and East

The M6 Toll has significantly improved the speed and reliability of journeys around Birmingham. The toll is reasonable. If the M6 Toll is appropriate for your journey it is well worth using it.

...from London via the M1, M6 and points to the east

Take the M1 as far as junction 19, then take the M6. Follow this as far as junction 3a. Here join the M6 Toll. Take this as far as junction T8 (the second junction after the toll booths). Now follow instructions under the heading "...from the M6 toll" (below).

...from London, Oxford and the Thames Valley via the M40

Follow the M40 to the end and then join the M42 heading north at junction 3a (signed M42, the north, M1, M6, Birmingham Central, Solihull). Pick up the M6 Toll and follow it to junction T8 (the second junction after the toll booths). Now follow instructions under the heading "...from the M6 toll" (below).

...from the M6 Toll

Take the A460 (signed to Wolverhampton) which crosses the M6 at junction 11 and continue to meet the M54 at junction 1. Head for Telford - the M54 becomes the A5. Leave the A5 for the A49 (signed for Whitchurch) at the first roundabout. Follow the A49 for approximately 10 miles, until you reach Prees Green. At Prees Green turn left onto the B5065 signed to Wem. Follow this for about two miles. Soulton Hall is on your left shortly after a humpbacked bridge.
