"The sort of English countryside most of us have long forgotten surrounds you at this converted farm building near Church Stretton.” Sawday's

Nestled on the Long Mynd in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Nest's location is blessed with myriad local walking, hiking and cycling routes and a feeling of solitude, whilst at the same time being near to the picturesque market towns of Church Stretton and Shrewsbury, and just a 10 minute walk from ancient Picklescott with 17th century inn The Bottle and Glass.

At the end of a long private drive, past a lake and through a green tunnel of trees you’ll find Nest Holiday Hideaway – peacefully positioned in the sleepy, 13th century hamlet of Batchcote, a name derived from Old English meaning ‘Cottage by the brook.’

The elevation at Nest's position on the Shropshire Hills' magnificent Long Mynd (ancient Brittonic for 'Long Mountain') is nearly 300 metres, the air is noticeably cleaner and crisper, and a sense of the Alpine awaits.

Nest Holiday Hideaway is a 10 minute walk from the ancient village of Picklescott, which has a wonderful 17th century inn and eatery called The Bottle and Glass. Picklescott also has its own 4.5 mile walk – winner of The Times’ Best UK Winter Walk 2018 – which starts and ends at The Bottle and Glass, a traditional English country pub serving delicious food, local ales and great wines in incredibly atmospheric surroundings.

Discover spectacular countryside — including Carding Mill Valley, Caer Caradoc, The Lawley and Stiperstones Nature Reserve — from your door, on foot or by bike.

Just 4 miles to town of Church Stretton — known as Little Switzerland — with 4 floor antique centre and collection of independent shops and cafés.

10 miles to riverside market town of Shrewsbury, first settled by 7th century Saxons, birth place of Charles Darwin, plus home to 660 listed buildings and a burgeoning boutique and café culture.

20 miles to architecturally-splendid Ludlow, mediaeval market town and gastronomic capital of Shropshire.

22 miles to historic Ironbridge and the Gorge Museums, World Heritage Site and birthplace of the industrial revolution.

Hundreds of historical interest sites nearby: castles; magnificent mansions and manor houses; abbeys and priories; stone circles and myriad other stone, neolithic and bronze age sites; great affluence of Sites of Special Scientific Interest; and the Roman city of Viroconium.
