The Dipping Shed is a secluded and unique cabin sleeping up to 4 guests, set in the Walcot Hall 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!

There are solar panels that provide electricity for the fridge, lights and low watt devices such as phone chargers.

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

Prices start from £400 - £500 for a 2 night weekend or 4 night midweek stay. Week stays cost from £525 - £750. Dogs welcome. Please note this property is accessed by foot and involves a walk across a section of a field.
