As well as plenty to stimulate the mind, including incredible wildlife diversity and abundance, plus history writ in every stone, plant, timber and contour.
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.
It has been sympathetically restored over many years, to meet current standards for comfort and convenience, reusing traditional materials and techniques where possible.
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.
The tranquil Wyre Forest is home to many rare and endanged plants and animals; and one of England's largest Sites of Special Scientific Interest, which includes the orchards beside the cottage.
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 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.
