The Dipping Shed is a secluded and unique cabin sleeping up to 4 guests, set on an estate, in the heart of the Shropshire hills. 

Inside this converted hunting lodge there is a fun open plan layout with one of the bedrooms overlooking the living area from a mezzanine floor reached only by a ladder staircase. In total there are 2 double bedrooms, a kitchen, living and dining area and a bathroom all of which boast creative decor, timber walls and charming wooden beams. Stay cosy with a log burner and traditional Aga that keeps the cabin warm no matter the weather outside.

Open the wooden shutters to really appreciate the secluded surroundings with breathtaking views over the west lake and the Long Mynd beyond. You can even start your day by enjoying the views and soaking up the tranquility with your favourite morning cuppa, all from a bench on the front patio!

While the Dipping shed is a secluded retreat that offers tranquility and an abundance of woodland and surrounding hills to explore, the site is also near historic castles, market towns and a number of attractions that are well worth a visit.
