A Grade II listed building, Swallow Beck Cottage is a treasure steeped in history and character, dating back to medieval times. A unique detached period property whose original features have been lovingly maintained, including a stunning inglenook fireplace, exposed stone walling, period beams, and traditional wall and roof timbers.   

This charming property is situated in the South Shropshire hamlet of Colebatch. Its position enjoys rural seclusion within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the border with Wales, midway between Ludlow and Shrewsbury. The ideal combination of serene country living, with the buzz of a vibrant market town just minutes away - Swallow Beck is approx. 1 mile away from the bohemian market town of Bishops Castle, a town famous for music, cosy pubs, independent shops, fairs and festivals; a haven for artists, potters, authors, musicians and free thinkers of every hue.

Swallow Beck offers 2/3 bedrooms with living room, kitchen, shower room, bathroom, gardens and garage. The property has been sympathetically refurbished over the years and offers the perfect balance of modern amenities with authentic period features.   

You are welcomed into a reception hallway with solid wood flooring, exposed stone walls and staircase rising to the first floor. There are doors from here to the rest of the downstairs accommodation.   

The kitchen has solid timber floor boards, a range of base and wall units, with ample cupboards, drawers and work surfaces inset with porcelain sink with drawer, four ring electric hob and oven, space and plumbing for a washing machine/ dishwasher, coloured tile splash back, radiator and down lighters. A window behind the sink allows plenty of light into the room. A rear lobby off the kitchen has a door to outside and storage cupboard.   

Next door to the kitchen is a dining room, which could also lend itself to a third bedroom if required. This is an open versatile space, with windows to two elevations, wooden flooring and storage cupboard. The living room is a stunning space with exposed stone walls, ceiling and wall beams and windows to both sides. There is a spectacular inglenook fireplace with flagstone hearth, Oak mantle above and woodburning stove in situ. A second staircase rises from here to the first floor. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a shower room comprising tiled shower cubicle, WC and wash hand basin.   

The principal bedroom above the living room has original wooden flooring, a vaulted ceiling with exposed timber beams, exposed stone walls to show a stone chimney breast, and gable with two windows which have distant country views beyond the village.

The bathroom is nicely appointed with an attractive Victorian style suite comprising a roll top bath, WC, and wash basin, radiator and down lighters.

Bedroom two is accessed via the staircase from the hallway leading to a landing area with storage cupboards. The bedroom is a good sized space with windows to elevations, there is also under eaves storage. The bathroom comprises rolltop bath, WC and wash hand basin.   

The cottage is tucked away, approached across a private driveway with access to driveway parking and a detached single garage. The garden is predominantly laid to lawn - a blank canvas for horticulturalists, that would no doubt enjoy adding to the charming aesthetic of this chocolate box home.
