Mynd Court Self-Catering Apartment in Shropshire

Mynd Court, though a haven of peace and tranquillity being nestled in the heart of the Long Mynd and Shropshire Hills, is but a three minute walk to the town centre of Church Stretton.

Church Stretton is a lovely “stroll size” town with many speciality shops, cafes, restaurants, takeaways, bars, a baker (as seen on the TV programme The Great British Bake off), a deli for the picnic hamper, a Thursday market, several pubs, cafes and an excellent wine bar. Three minutes walk in the opposite direction will take you to the notable tourist centre of Cardingmill Valley, the gateway to walker's, glider's, and cyclist's paradise.

Accommodation

Built in 1905 to house the parish vicar and later used as a retirement home, Helen, Ian and family have carefully converted and renovated the main house at Mynd Court, and have added a large, one bedroom, self contained, comfortable, modern holiday home let.

The holiday home, though attached to the main house, has its own separate entrance and parking area and is fully central heated, with a combi boiler for constant hot water. A warm lobby for boots, shoes and coats leads into a spacious sitting room with log burner, TV, DVD and sofa, which is specifically designed to easily convert into an additional double bed.

The bedroom contains a luxurious super king sized bed that can, if required, be easily prepared as two full size single beds. The bathroom has both a separate shower and bath. The sizeable kitchen is extremely well equipped with a fridge freezer, microwave, electric oven and hob, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, table with seating for four, and an iron and ironing board.

Outside, the accommodation enjoys an exclusive sun trap patio with table, chairs, parasol, barbecue and outside power socket. A lockable storage facility is available for bikes.

All utility bills, bed linen and towels are included in your booking fees, as is a copious supply of logs and kindling for the log burner.The barbecue is set up ready to light and start cooking upon . Additional barbecue fuel may be purchased from local garages and supermarkets.

Church Stretton

The Town

As a health resort the Victorians called Church Stretton "little Switzerland" (without the wolves and avalanches) but with its alpine like hills and valleys its easy to see why. Church Stretton still retains its spa town feel with natural springs providing the source of Stretton Hills bottled water.

For Walkers

Church Stretton was the first town in Shropshire to be awarded the 'Walkers Are Welcome' status. Walkers Are Welcome towns are places which have something special to offer for walkers more than simply being a fantastic place to come and enjoy the great outdoors.

Above the town rises the Long Mynd, a popular walking area - ideal for exploring the Shropshire Hills. The town also holds its own annual Walking Festival in June.

Carding Mill Valley provides a more leisurely walk popular with visitors and a tea pavilion for that all important brew.

Events and Festivals

Church Stretton & South Shropshire Arts Festival takes place each year. The festivities result in the South Shropshire Hills literally becoming alive with the sound of music!

Length

The length of our walking guides is given in miles and rounded to the nearest full mile (whole number) for simplicity. For short walks (of less than 2 miles) or walks that have a length that ends in .5, a more accurate walk length may be given in the first section of the walk introduction. For example, the Length in the header may be listed as 6 miles, and the introduction may confirm that the exact length of the walk is 5.5 miles. The walk length is calculated from the GPS file that was created by the walk author GPS tracking the walk whilst walking, using the iFootpath App GPS Tracker, meaning it is very accurate. Our bespoke tracker is particularly detailed and plots a walkers position about every 10 seconds. The tracker is calibrated to match two other reputable map and walking sources, Ordnance Survey and Nike. As with all standardised walk and map lengths, the distance does not take account of hills and slopes, just the distance you would measure using a piece of string on a flat map version of the terrain, so hilly walks will feel longer than stated. If you track the route using another GPS App or Tracker App or Fitness Device, you can expect the distance you record to be different due to different calibrations. This is particularly true of those Apps and devices that count your motion and steps – these can only guess the distance you have travelled with each step and so are much less accurate.

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult the terrain is that you will encounter along the way. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. It takes into account things like hills, path surfaces and obstacles (like stiles, gates, steps and rock scrambles). An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 Boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 Boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles that require scrambling with your hands. Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.

NOTE: Do be aware that the level of stamina required for any walk will vary depending on both the walk length and the difficulty grade - you should only walk within your limits.
