Heart of England, SY5 0HJ, GB
Perfect for parties of up to 5 people, Hillgate House was originally built in the 18th Century, when it was used as a farmhouse. Since then, it has been lovingly restored to retain many of its original features, such as exposed beams and a cast-iron stove, yet has been decorated in a modern, yet complementary style. There is a large, lawned garden from which you can enjoy the scenery provided by the Callow and the Corndon Hills, or simply kick back with a glass of wine and enjoy a spot of summertime dining. There are walking, cycling and horse-riding facilities close by and parking for up to 3 cars.

Excellent accommodation, could not fault it in any way. The location is just perfect for getting away and sampling 'the Shropshire way,' could not ask for any more.
,This House is beautiful, we really couldn't recommend it highly enough. The owners have clearly put a huge amount of work into making it the perfect country destination. Hillgate House has the best of both worlds, with a new bathroom, comfortable beds, Sky TV and double glazing to go with the old-world charm of a 300 year old stone farmhouse. We spent a week there over Christmas, and had one to remember.
,The location was wonderful with loads of wildlife and the cottage was beautiful.
,A lovely cottage, very quiet in the country with no passing traffic. Everything was well kept and everything provided for. The best cottage we've stayed in - and we've stayed in a few! Walks in the surrounding area were really beautiful with views looking out over remarkable countryside. If you like bird watching they are encouraged in the garden and we saw some beauties really close up that we don't get in our own garden. A very relaxing holiday and plenty to do around and about if you wish.
Mr Harris, Kent
,Hillgate House is a well equipped, comfortable and cosy cottage in a very peaceful location. There is abundant wildlife in the garden. Hillgate House is one of the best cottages we have stayed in.
Mr Dibnah, East Riding of Yorkshire
,Lovely cottage and garden, it was a peaceful and relaxing break with great walks on the doorstep.
Mr Jones, Greater Manchester
,One of the best cottages we have stayed in, had great difficulty in persuading our dog to leave!
,Another great week in a cosy cottage, we will be back. Thank you very much.
Ms Eyers, Hertfordshire
,Hillgate House gave us a warm and cosy welcome as we walked through the door, we instantly felt at home. Everything you might need is there. The bird life in the garden was excellent. The location is perfect, it was very peaceful with stunning walks from the gate. Looking forward to our next visit.
Mr Hood, Leicestershire
,We had an excellent holiday! We have stayed in a variety of holiday cottages before and this was by far the best. Hillgate house was the perfect place to relax in peace and quiet with beautiful views over the country side to watch all the wildlife. The cottage was furnished to a very high standard; a log burner in the lounge made it very cosy on the colder days.
Mrs Townsend, Northamptonshire
,Hillgate House is the perfect place for peace and tranquillity. There was everything you could possibly need in the cottage and the garden was perfect for bird watching. There is a lovely little walk from the cottage to the standing stones on the open moorland and Skylarks galore. If quiet countryside holidays are what you enjoyM then I would definitely recommend Hillgate House. It is beautiful.
Mrs Street, West Midlands
,Hillgate House is a lovely home away from home. It has a nice secure garden for our two dogs, in a good location with hours of dogs walks if you turn right out of the gate. The beds are comfortable and have good quality bedding. There is a nice wood and coal burning stove in the front room and storage heaters to heat the rest of the house. We found the house to be very warm and cosy and can not wait to go back.
Mrs Shaw, Essex
,Wonderfully dog friendly cottage! It has a large garden which the dogs and the grandchildren loved. Quiet location in beautiful countryside. We liked being woken up by the birds (especially the male pheasant). The owner is very helpful and should be proud of his property.
Mrs Wright, Kent
,The cottage and surroundings are beautiful and extremely dog friendly. The kitchen is very well fitted out with many more gadgets and utensils that we have come across in previous cottages. It really was a home from home stay set in a completely chill out place.
Mrs Dunning, Lincolnshire
,I have been here quite a few times now and it is like walking into a well loved home.The owner has spent a lot of money on the property.The location is so relaxing and just what we needed.The garden is perfect. .
,We had a lovely holiday. The atmosphere was very welcoming and we particularly enjoyed the garden. The cottage is very comfortable and stylish. The location is idyllic. Every effort was made to make our stay memorable.
Mr Spencer, East Riding of Yorkshire
,We liked the peace and privacy of the cottage and the general isolation. Being able to let the dogs run free in the garden was a bonus. The cottage was well appointed and very comfortable; it felt like home almost straight away.
Dr Wilson, Sir Gaerfyrddin
,The cottage has such a lovely feel about it and you immediately felt at home. The garden was superb. It was spotlessly clean and had a rustic cottage feel - a typical country cottage. We loved the remoteness albeit there was a school just up the road, it was peaceful, full of wildlife and some superb walks although because the weather was so nice we mostly enjoyed chilling in the garden watching the farmer at work and the wildlife.
