    Perched on beautiful Shapridge Hill at the end of a quiet track, Wren Cottage which is the perfect romantic getaway. The cottage is a haven of peace and tranquillity and the large wildlife garden enjoys stunning views over the surrounding countryside. Footpaths lead from the front door onto a vast network of Forest paths and tracks, you can literally walk for miles!

    The cottage benefits from a large wildlife garden with its own birdhide and excellent views. Feeders are provided with plenty of nuts and seeds for you to top them up if you wish. If you love wildlife, you will love the garden, for example watching the swallows skimming the surface of the pond for insects in summer and witnessing the house martins mobbing a hobby overhead! .

Perfection. Quirky. Serene. Peaceful. Hilly! Just some of the words to best describe Wren Cottage and it's location. You need a car. And to be quite mobile-it's a trek from the house up a steep incline back to the car. If you're looking for a spacious house, this isn't for you. It's tiny but perfectly formed.

My partner and I stayed for five nights in Little Wren cottage in March 2014. The cottage is situated in a serene area which was ideal for the peace and quiet we were seeking. The cottage is very well maintained; there is an exceptionally well equipped kitchen, a cosy living room (with a log fire) and a comfortable bedroom upstairs.... more
