Lots of Light, Aga, Homely

The accommodation is on two levels. The house is approached by a gravel drive with ample parking outside the front door. On entering the house there is a large hallway with the stairs to the left and the downstairs cloakroom to the right with loo off this. Straight ahead is the open plan sitting/dining room, with lovely double doors out to the garden and two other windows, creating a wonderfully bright and airy feel. There is a large squashy, comfortable sofa and chairs as well as a real fire perfect for those winters evenings. Off this to the right is the kitchen, fully fitted with a fabulous aga (cooking only), great for family roast dinners (charged at an extra £20.00 per week for the oil), which again gives the house a cosy, homely feel.

There is a conservatory off the kitchen which overlooks the field next door, which has sheep grazing most of the year, and lambs in the spring. To the left of the sitting room is the second sitting room, great if you have children and they want a space all to themselves.

Upstairs to the left of the stairs are two bedrooms. The twin looks out over the front of the house with great village view, and the master bedroom with dual aspect, looks out over the garden and fields to the back of the house. To the right is the second bedroom with double bed again looking out over the garden and fields to the rear of the house. The new modern bathroom is opposite this bedroom and has a bath with shower over. Quality duvets, pillows, bed linen and towels are provided.

Lawn House was designed specifically with light capture in mind and as such is warm, light and bright throughout. If you are looking for a more unique place to stay instead of a country cottage this is the house for you, no low doorways or ceilings and plenty of space to spread out.

The Area Around Lawn House

Lawn House is a perfect marriage of modernist house in a rural setting, with the convenience of a village location to explore the many things to see and do throughout the region. Near-by are some ancient houses over 400 years old and the River Arrow.

Up river is the fishery at Monkland and it has a selection of coarse and fly fishing. The Village of Eardisland is one of several local villages with timber framed houses which were once vernacular architecture across England and are rare survivors in numbers.

Lawn House is suitable as a quiet country escape, offering the ideal location to explore South Shropshire, Herefordshire and Wales. There are several market towns, all with historic interest: Shrewsbury , Ludlow, Leominster, Hereford, and Hay on Wye a little further. Other towns of interest are Much Wenlock, birthplace of the modern day Olmpics and Bishop’s Castle with it's local Brewery The Three Tuns, perfect for Real Ale lovers.

The area of Leominster and Eardisland was once in Wales as was all land west of the River Severn so the complex history of border lands extends well into England some 15 miles or more to the East of the modern border with Wales close to Offa's Dyke.

Reviews

November 2016 "The booking process was very efficient. I was able to speak to a gentleman who personally knew the property and was able to answer some questions I had. I received immediate confirmation of the booking and information about the house along with directions from the owner.

Initially I was unsure about booking a 60’s property but I need not have worried as it is well built and has a “cottagey “ feel about it inside. It is in a very peaceful lane on the edge of the village, the only sounds we heard were the owls of an evening. delightful to hear. We have just returned from 11 wonderful nights at The Lawn House. Although not luxurious it is a very spacious and comfortable house. It was clean and well prepared for our arrival and very well equipped with everything we needed. We loved the open fire which provided a very cosy place to gather round of an evening.. Although we didn’t use the Aga it provided a background warmth.The garden is large, well kept and lovely to look onto from the lounge. The village of Eardisland is delightful, a very short walk to the local pub where we were made very welcome. We were served good meals by very friendly staff. One evening we didn’t realise that meals were not being served but the owner came to our rescue and ordered us meals from a Chinese takeaway in Leominster, set the table with cutlery and plates and proceeded to serve the meals, Amazingly helpful to go so out of his way. Rita’s tearooms have very friendly staff and serve an excellent cooked breakfast. This a beautiful part of the country with lots of delightful towns and villages to visit, also NT properties, castles and gardens not too far away.

All in all we had a really great stay at the Lawn house, we hope to return if visiting this area in the future and would recommend to anyone wanting a quiet country holiday."

August 2015 "We spent a long weekend at Lawn house and it was fantastic."

July 2014 "Just to thank you for an enjoyable stay at Lawn House. Its a lovely house and area and we enjoyed having the sheep next door."

July 2014 "We had a wonderful week at Lawn House. The house was very comfortable full of character and opened on to a lovely garden. The village of Eardisland is beautiful and worth a look round..."

October 2013 "More than happy to give a recommendation for Lawn House. With its unusual 60s architecture and big windows it looks good and was very comfortable to stay in. In the village yet remote from it. We will be looking to use the property again for short stays....Thanks for the splendid service."

May 2013"We had a lovely time at Lawn House...."
