At the end of a long private drive, past a lake and through a green tunnel of trees you’ll find Nest – peacefully positioned in the ancient settlement of Betchcott near Picklescott, a sanctuary of serenity in the stupendous Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
You’ll be 3/4 mile from the ancient village of Picklescott, with award winning 17th century inn and eatery The Bottle & Glass, and just a stone’s throw from a private, secluded pay-as-you-go fishing lake.
Visit the quaint market town of Church Stretton — known as Little Switzerland — just 4 miles south of Nest holiday cottages, and with a 4-floor antique centre and collection of independent shops and cafés.
Your accommodation will be just 10 miles from the riverside market town of Shrewsbury, first settled by 7th century Saxons, the birth place of Charles Darwin, plus home to 660 listed buildings and a burgeoning boutique and café culture.
20 miles south of Nest is Ludlow, mediaeval market town and gastronomic capital of Shropshire.
22 miles east of the Nest holiday cottages is historic Ironbridge, birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and World Heritage Site.
There are also hundreds of historical interest sites nearby: castles; magnificent mansions and manor houses; abbeys and priories; stone circles and myriad other stone, neolithic and bronze age sites; a great affluence of Sites of Special Scientific Interest; and the Roman city of Viroconium.
