There's loads to do, either challenging or restful to suit each person's tastes.  And it is perfect for your pets too!

For every age group there is plenty to stimulate the mind, with incredible wildlife diversity and abundance, plus history writ in every stone, plant, timber and contour.

Cottage Garden

Manor Holding is a romantically secluded, Grade II Listed, half timbered, Jacobean cottage farmhouse in the middle of the ancient Wyre Forest, half a kilometre from the nearest tarmac road.

Bedside Table

It has been sympathetically restored over many years, to meet current standards for comfort and convenience, reusing traditional materials and techniques where possible.

Forest by Manor Holding

The cottage is set in 2ha (5 acres) of wild flower grassland with ancient cherry, apple and pear orchards, rich in wildlife including occasional Fallow Deer.  

Adjoining the cottage grounds, England's largest woodland National Nature Reserve is home to many rare and endanged plants and animals;

plus one of England's largest Sites of Special Scientific Interest, which includes the orchards beside the cottage. 

Geopark Bridleway by Manor Holding

The forest is laced with cycling and horse riding trails as well as a comprehensive network of footpaths, connecting right to the door of the cottage.

This ancient oak forest of Wyre stands astride the River Severn, England's longest river, south of the Ironbridge Gorge, a World Heritage Site.

The beautiful countryside around it, including the 'South Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', is rich in historic settlements and other places of interest.
