General Info

Without any doubt, The Shooting Folly is as unique holiday home that we have ever come across. Standing all on its own, surrounded by glorious Shropshire farmland and with long views over fields and woods, it is an unbelievably romantic bolt hole in some of the most attractive countryside in England. It’s history dates back to the 19th Century, once believed to be an old shooting lodge, the building is wonderfully quirky with a crenelated mock church tower at one end, a stepped gable at the other and in between a simple, timber thatched cottage! In recent years the folly has been transformed (from a ruin) by its current owners back to its former glory using high quality materials, to create a very homely and unique ‘hideaway’ filled with period features and all mod cons you’d expect from a high quality home, including a super Cedar Hot Tub. In our opinion, the Folly is just as perfect for honeymooners as it is for walkers, in fact anyone seeking peace and tranquillity in a remote rural environment. There is little not to love in this gem, not least that there are two pubs within a few miles too! The gorgeous village of Cheswardine is relatively untouched and is a typical Shropshire village. There are two pubs in the village, The Fox & Hounds and The Wharf Tavern which sits right on the canal. For walkers (and the non-walkers too!) there is a network of public footpaths all round from your front door. The Shooting Folly is a brilliant getaway for couples that are looking for a honeymoon destination, or just a space to get away from everyday life. Read More
