From Shrewsbury proceed north along the A5 until reaching the Shotatton crossroads. Turn right and head to Ruyton XI Towns. Proceed into the village, passed the school and take the next turning right on to Pound Lane. Follow this to the first bend and proceed straight ahead on to an unmade access track. Follow this quite some distance through two sharp bends and a wooded area, which then leads directly to the property.


The property occupies a highly desirable and beautifully secluded rural location in the middle of North Shropshire farmland, occupying a sheltered position with a lovely woodland foreground. There is immediate access available on to a bridleway, which extends along the access track and driveway and then out through woodland. The nearby village of Ruyton XI Towns offers a pub, church, primary school and Packwood Haugh School. Whilst the neighbouring village of Baschurch includes a busy Spar shop, pubs, takeaway restaurants, a repair garage and the highly popular Corbett School. A more comprehensive range of amenities can be found at either Shrewsbury or Oswestry. Commuters will find that the A5 links north through to Oswestry with links to Wrexham and Chester, or alternatively east through to Telford and thereon to Wolverhampton. The area is well known for its country pursuits and from the property there is excellent opportunity for riding out.


Cotonside offers a rare opportunity to acquire a versatile equestrian property, which includes a tastefully presented detached family house, built of sandstone and brick, having well proportioned living accommodation throughout, including 3 reception rooms in addition to a lovely open plan living breakfast kitchen, with an open fireplace and an Aga cooker to the kitchen fittings.
