THE SQUIRE FARM
The Squire Farm, Chapel Lawn, Bucknell, Shropshire SY7 0BW
Squire Cottage is an old farmhouse built half in stone and half in timber and render with a smattering of red brick! It sits at the top of a field looking down towards the River Redlake and the Dingle with its babbling brook and ancient wet woodland.
The cottage sleeps four people comfortably in two bedrooms; a cot and an airbed are also available for extra family members. The front door opens onto one open space with a large inglenook fireplace complete with bread oven, dominating the ‘living’ end of the room. Here you can sit around the open fire telling stories, reading, listening to music or watching television. At the other end, there is a fully equipped kitchen with hand built oak units and a large refectory table. There is also a small cloakroom with lavatory and washbasin and room for wellies and boots.

This was a beautiful cottage, full of old world charm yet with all modern comforts. Generous welcome pack, comfortable & clean. Quiet which is very important to me. A good location for exploring the lovely villages & attractions & not too far from lovely Ludlow.
‘A grand place to stay!’
It's always nice to unravel the mysteries surrounding old buildings, it's even better to have the privilege of living in one and to have the opportunity to experience the slice of history which is Squire cottage, even if it's only for a short while.

Squire Cottage is the perfect place to curl up in front of a roaring log fire with a book after a brisk walk to the top of Caer Caradoc to watch the sun come up.
What a way to celebrate 19th wedding anniversary. Cottage was brilliant. Sheep and horses in your garden, stunning views. Owners were very helpful when our car broke down. The welcome pack was a nice surprise. Lots to see in surrounding area. We will be back as soon as we can. Thank you for a lovely stay.
