Apartment for 2 in a Great Area for Exploring
Turning into the gravel drive off the main road Corndon View is about 50 yards on the right hand side. There is ample parking space a short distance from the entrance to Corndon View. The entrance to the apartment is through the organic vegetable plot, from which guests can enjoy fresh produce in season.
On entering Corndon View you climb a fairly steep staircase to reach the apartment. At the top of the stairs to the right is the shower room with wash hand basin and wc (no bath) and straight ahead is the dining kitchen, fully equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. Past these two rooms is the door leading to the large open plan bedroom/sitting room which enjoys the most fantastic views of both Stiperstone Ridge and Corndon Hill. The kingsize can split into twin beds if requested, in advance of a stay.
The seating area is quite large and has a lovely comfy sofa and chair, the bedroom area again is generous in size. One of the benefits from being so high up is the fact that there are views from every window, the main room being dual aspect and very light and airy. There is a lovely private south facing patio area to the right of the front door up the hill which gives glorious views down the valley. This is an ideal area for al fresco dining or for a drink enjoying the view.
Guests also have use of a large utility room which houses a freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and indoor drying area, which is shared with Sunnyview Cottage guests. Mobile phones do not get a signal here but the apartment does have Wifi, so you are not completely cut off! (Rural broadband can be slow compared to the town and, from time to time, it can be less reliable).
The Bog Visitor Centre is worth a visit. Believed to be unique this is Britains only gas lit visitor centre, housed in an old Victorian School. The Bog used to be a thriving mining community, with an old lead mine 1300ft above sea level, some remains of the the village are left, the Old School House, the Lead Mine and the Somme Tunnel.
A lovely area with lots to see and do. Walks starting at the door for all abilities, easy access to South Shropshire towns and historical sites. Walking, cycling or riding or exploring the small market towns nearby, Corndon View is perfect, whatever the season.
