Park Cottage is an attractive part-timbered detached period house which retains a wealth of character and charm. Although in need of some upgrading, Park Cottage offers buyers the opportunity to create an idyllic edge of village home.

The hall with parquet flooring opens to an atmospheric dining room with panelled walls, an inglenook fireplace featuring a bread oven and housing a wood burning stove. The light and airy sitting room is dual aspect with a door opening to the conservatory which overlooks the garden. There is also a dual aspect study.

A delightful country kitchen/breakfast room has windows overlooking the garden and is fitted
with a good range of storage cupboards, a four oven Aga, an electric oven and hob and benefits from a useful pantry and an adjacent utility room. There is plenty of space for a breakfast table for informal entertaining.

Completing the ground floor is a bedroom, a bathroom and a separate WC/ cloakroom. There are two staircases in Park Cottage one rising to the master bedroom with fitted storage, a shower, WC and wash hand basin.

The main staircase rises from the hall to the first floor landing off which are three bedrooms all enjoying countryside views along with a stylish family bathroom with a double ended bath and a separate shower. There is also a separate WC.

Park Cottage offers well-proportioned and extremely flexible accommodation benefiting from excellent reception and entertaining space.

Hopton Castle is a small hamlet which lies approximately half way between Knighton and Craven Arms in the county of Shropshire, and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. There is a church and a village hall, with a good range of amenities at nearby Leintwardine.

To the east is the historic market town of Ludlow, famed for its gastronomic reputation, independent shops and vibrant festivals, which continues to enjoy immense popularity from both locals and visitors alike.

Communications are good and the A49, the trunk road that connects the county town of Shrewsbury in the north to the cathedral city of Hereford in the south, is at Craven Arms where there is also a train station on the main Manchester to Cardiff line.

There are both primary and secondary state schools in Ludlow, with the independent sector well catered for with Bedstone College nearby and Moor Park Preparatory in Ludlow.

Park Cottage is approached off a country lane through a gated entrance onto a gravel driveway with plenty of vehicular parking to the front of a detached garage/workshop.

The gardens are mainly laid to lawn interspersed with mature trees and flowering beds and are bordered at the rear by open countryside. There is plenty of space for a kitchen garden near to the greenhouse and potting shed with power connected. There is also a small orchard. The garden offers various vantage points for enjoying
the far-reaching views.
