The kitchen/dining area is very well equipped and easily has everything you need to have a very comfortable stay including a digital radio.

The Area Around Callow View

Callow View is an excellent place for the exploration of the Shropshire Hills. Great walks can start from the cottage and many of the sites and events and are within an hour's drive.

You can visit Ironbridge Gorge Museums, Severn Valley Railway and Acton Scott Historic Working Farm, great with or without children. Shrewsbury, with a fine castle and Abbey and interesting surviving historic medieval buildings is worth a visit. Ludlow has a huge Norman castle, the impressive St Lawrence's Church, many festivals, a large range of independent shops and it has a great selection of excellent restaurants, including 2 Michelin star ones. Hereford Cathedral with its 13th century Mappa Mundi is a little further away but still worth visiting, Hereford being the county capital is much larger with a good variety of shops and amenities.

Alternatively, Hay on Wye, famous for its book festival, is a lovely border town and a good day out. Ancient and historical ruins together with modern crafts can be found in quiet and interesting places such as Bishops Castle and Clun.

It is pleasantly situated, off the main round so it is nice & quiet, but not to far from the main amenities & places of interest. The accommodation is very well looked after, clean & tidy & caters for all requirements. There was even some biscuits & a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived.There is a large amount of useful information to be found in Callow View i.e brochure's, flyers & maps informing the holiday maker of places of interest. The proprietors, who live adjoining Callow View, are very friendly, helpful & seem keen to make sure you have a good stay. This was our second stay at Callow View & hopefully will not be our last.

"We have thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Callow view, the accommodation was very well equipped and furnished and spotlessly clean. We received a warm welcome on arrival and there was a well organised selection of folders with brochures, leaflets and recommendations for the area, including walking guides, which we made good use of during our stay. The area is beautiful and we spent every day exploring on foot or by car. We particularly enjoyed the excellent choice of local produce available everywhere we went.

"we had a lovely few days at Callow View - it is a very pleasant, nicely furnished and well-equipped flat with plenty of room for three adults. Craven Arms itself is not the most exciting town in Shropshire but is well placed for touring and Stokesay Castle, just outside the town, is delightful.
