The Roost: A Dog Friendly Paradise in the Heart of the Shropshire Hills

Tucked away amidst the serene countryside of Shropshire, you’ll discover a wonderful retreat that effortlessly fuses charm, comfort, and dog friendly – The Roost. This one-bedroom barn conversion, just 1.5 miles off the A49, is an idyllic escape for dog owners and their beloved pets.

Within The Roost, you’ll find an inviting atmosphere with high vaulted ceilings and lots of natural light from numerous skylights. The bedroom is home to a comfortable king-sized bed, with picturesque views of the front courtyard, rear garden, and adjoining lake. The bathroom, equipped with a bath and walk-in shower, and sitting room, boasting comfy seating, a modern electric fireplace, and freeview TV, are both suffused with ample sunlight from windows and skylights.

Moving into the heart of the home, the kitchen is a dream for culinary enthusiasts, featuring a fridge-freezer, electric oven, built-in microwave, and induction hob. Gazing out from the windows or stepping through the French doors, you’re greeted by the secure, fenced rear garden with beautiful views of the countryside, perfect for enjoying a morning cup of coffee or a barbeque under the stars.

At The Roost, our four-legged guests are just as important as their two-legged companions. Dogs are welcomed with open arms, and we strive to provide everything necessary for their comfort. From a bed, towel, food and water dishes, to toys and treats, everything is considered for our furry guests. For those essential walks, an approximately 500m track leads from the house, ideal for that quick stroll at dusk.

For more adventurous dogs and their owners, the surrounding Shropshire Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty, offers countless trails. You could take a leisurely walk along the River Seven in Shrewsbury, enjoy the breathtaking views from Lyth Hill, or explore the picturesque grounds of the National Trust property at Attingham Park. You’ll also find a comprehensive booklet in the property detailing local walks, vets, and dog-friendly establishments.

To ensure an enjoyable stay for all, we kindly request guests to follow a few simple rules; Dogs should be kept off the furniture and bed, and any muddy paws should be cleaned before entering the cottage. Dogs should never be left unattended in the property, and it’s essential to clean up after your dog in the garden or down the track.

Beyond being a haven for you and your canine companion, The Roost provides easy access to various scenic towns and villages that Shropshire boasts, including Shrewsbury, Church Stretton, and Ludlow. Many local businesses warmly welcome your four-legged friend. And for a truly memorable souvenir, why not have a ‘Dog Portrait’ painted of your pet? Guests at The Roost enjoy over a 30% discount!
