About Stable Cottage

Stable Cottage is one of a delightful little group of five character cottages making up Mocktree Barns Holiday Cottages. They are located in glorious countryside on the Shropshire / Herefordshire border just seven miles from the historic town of Ludlow and five miles to the Welsh border.
The cottage is an attractive, stone two storey cottage ideal for a couple with a king size double bed and ensuite shower room. The bed may be split to provide single beds if required.
A folding bed, suitable for a child or small adult, can be made available. We also have a large travel cot,
The lounge/dining area is comfortably furnished and enjoys splendid views over the neighbouring farmland toward Ludlow and the Shropshire Hills in the distance.
The kitchen area is fully equipped for up to four people with electric cooker, fridge, microwave and toaster.
Bed linen, towels, heating and electricity are all included in the tariff.
There is WiFi access.
Children and Pets welcome (no more than two dogs)
At Mocktree Barns the cottages, as well as our own home, are situated around a south-facing courtyard with splendid views over farmland to the South Shropshire Hills. Each cottage has a wealth of original stone and timber features; a nice reminder that they were once farm barns.
The courtyard has tables, chairs and parasols for relaxing in the sun while the bees buzz gently in our wildlife-friendly gardens and the red kites circle overhead.
We garden organically and are pleased to have the Gold Award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme, as well as the Achiever Award for 2011 from the Shropshire Hills Sustainable Business Scheme.
Electric Vehicle charging point - free for guests use
There are walks from the door in all directions as well as National Trust properties, the Mortimer Forest, Herefordshire Cider Trail, castles, gardens and lots of other attractions for all ages close by. We can offer discount vouchers for Acton Scott Historic Working Farm (where the 'Victorian Farm' series was filmed) and the famous Ironbridge Gorge musuems.
As well as Stable Cottage, the other cottages are:-
Jinney Ring, the largest cottage suitable for a family group.
Kibble Mill, a two storey cottage facing away from the courtyard and ideal for a couple. This 'vintage' cottage is furnished intriguingly with a 'hint of yesteryear'.
Kit and Weavers cottages open directly onto the paved courtyard and are both single storey offering comfortable accommodation for less mobile couples. Both of these have been assessed under the National Accessible Scheme and awarded Level 1.
All the cottages are well-equipped. Bed linen, towels, heating and electricity are all included in the tariff. All cottages have WiFi access.
Children and Pets welcome (no more than two dogs per cottage)
