Rose Cottage is a beautifully appointed historic grade 2 listed cottage dating back to the 14th Century which has been sympathetically extended by the existing owner.

The property has an excellent layout with a traditional kitchen/breakfast room found in the heart of the house, two/three primary reception rooms, four/five bedrooms and two bathrooms. The first floor landing bedroom (5th bedroom) area is of considerable size, currently serving as a large home office area. There are wonderful period features throughout including exposed beams, latched doors, an AGA range and a log burning stove within the sitting room, and also a log burning stove in the large seperate dining room.


Rose Cottage stands within the much sought after hilltop village of Little Wenlock, nestled into the south side of the Wrekin. The house combines village living with extraordinary privacy, peace and quiet, but with easy access to the motorway network.

Little Wenlock is a charming village with an active local community offering year round events organised by the village hall, Church and well reputed award winnng public house – The Huntsman. There are a number of footpaths and bridle ways giving access to the surrounding countryside for safe walking and riding, along with a couple of golf courses nearby.

The area is renowned for its excellent schools within the state and independent sectors. Coalbrookdale Primary school is a short drive while Wrekin College, Thomas Telford, Newport grammar and the range of Shrewsbury schools are all easily accessible.

The village is well placed for commuting to the country town of Shrewsbury, Telford and Midland Business centres, while the nearby town of Much Wenlock offers a range of local amenities, individual shops and weekly farmers market. Regional airports include Birmingham, Manchester and East midlands.


The cottage occupies beautiful private grounds of approximately a quarter of an acre which provide enchanting views from the house and a number of seating areas ideal for outdoor entertaining. An expanse of lawn is found to the north east of the house, surrounded by mature trees and overlooked by the Summerhouse that had been used as an office with electricity. The pig sty has been converted to provide a further 3rd bathroom and could be used for potential AIRBNB business. There is an off road parking area on the eastern boundary.
