Sham Castle in Shropshire

Sham Castle is a charming and characterful escape for families and couples in the West Midlands. This waterside cottage was built in 1780 and offers panoramic views of rolling countryside from its elevated position on a rock knoll overlooking a lake.

The property is surrounded by 1.75 acres of enclosed gardens and sits behind hand-wrought gates, down a private road across a 75-acre field.

The downstairs of this unique countryside cottage features original quarry tile floors, a hexagonal dining kitchen with a two-oven Aga, two double bedrooms and a family shower room with a rainfall shower. Climb the spiral staircase to the first floor, where you'll find the master bedroom with a king leather sleigh bed and drawing room with oak flooring, arched windows, wood burner, Smart TV and DVD player, and a small table and chairs.

The enclosed gardens surrounding Sham Castle have furniture scattered throughout, perfect for relaxing or enjoying fresh fruit picked from the many trees and bushes. The middle lawn is secluded and captures the midday sun, with four sun loungers available for soaking up the warmth. Guests can explore the grounds, enjoy lakeside views, or venture out further along the many walking and cycling paths nearby.

The village of Acton Burnell, known for an early meeting of Parliament where the Statute merchant was passed in 1283 and home to Concord College, is just a mile's walk down the road. The historic town of Shrewsbury is a short eight-mile drive to the north.
