The location of Laundry Cottage is something truly special. You approach the peaceful and private ancient estate of Boreatton along a private country lane which is flanked either side by woodland, meres and mosses abundant with fauna and flora - a birdwatcher's paradise!

Laundry Cottage, which sits on a generous plot of nearly an acre, is believed to have been built in the early 1800s. It is first glimpsed through tall iron gates leading onto the large gravelled parking area. To the front of the house a gravel path runs down the length of the property to the imposing front oak door, overlooking the beautiful courtyard of Boreatton Hall

To the rear, there is a sizeable expanse of lawn bordered by hedge and part by low-level fencing offering far-reaching views of rolling Shropshire countryside and distant hills.

Inside, Laundry Cottage is truly extraordinary. All of the rooms are spacious with many original features such as a host of exposed timbers (especially featured within the very high vaulted ceilings on the first floor), wooden and original tiled floors, a magnificent wide oak staircase, a restored cast-iron spiral staircase, impressive exposed brick and sandstone fireplaces and much more.

This exceptional home needs to be seen in person to fully appreciate is character and exclusive setting. Read on for more detailed information about each room, be sure to look at the floor plans and then get in touch to arrange a viewing.


Laundry Cottage is set within the peaceful and private ancient estate of Boreatton Hall. The position is just 1 mile from Baschurch village which hosts many local amenities including a mini-supermarket, medical centre, opticians, post office, newsagents, hardware and primary / secondary schools and of course the renowned New Inn.

For clarification, Boreatton Hall should not be confused with Boreatton Park Activity Centre, which is actually located approximately 2 miles away.


Due to the unique and secluded location of Laundry Cottage, it may be difficult to find. Directions can be offered on request for any viewing appointments.


Note: Laundry Cottage is Grade II* Listed by Curtilage. It may be useful to know that the current owners successfully obtained Listed Building Consent and Planning Permission (now lapsed) for a single storey double garage as well as a self-contained annex adjoining the main property.
