The detail

In the most remote fringes of the grand Walcot Hall estate, The Dipping Shed blends seclusion and seduction to great effect. There’s room for four at this rustic old cabin with a surprisingly chic interior, near the borders of Shropshire and East Wales.

On the edge of an arboretum, it’s a steep climb to reach The Dipping Shed’s elevated position – but it’s worth it. Step inside and you’ll find it’s open-plan and rather spacious, with wood-panelled walls and wooden floors. Continuing the theme, wooden shutters open out to reveal a stunning view of a lake, fields and hills.

In the style of a hunting lodge, The Dipping Shed really feels away from it all – and it’s a good ten-minute walk from the main house at Walcot Hall. Adjacent to the living area is a cosy kitchen complete with Aga, gas cooker and a fridge powered by the cabin’s own generator. A table and chairs by the entrance lets you make the most of the outside space.

There are two double bedrooms, including one at mezzanine level above the kitchen, accessed via a ladder staircase. A lovely bathroom with seating and a centrepiece arched window is the kind you will want to linger in, and perfectly complements the sleeping quarters.

Rural Shropshire is full of undiscovered gems, so it’s worth planning some excursions for your time at The Dipping Shed. Walcot Hall itself has many acres of beautiful grounds to explore, so be sure to bring your walking boots (and a torch for getting back to the lodge after dark).

Further afield, just south of the Shropshire Hills, the town of Ludlow deserves to be on your itinerary, with all sorts of foodie discoveries to be made. Stokesay and Ludlow Castles are big historical draws, and a regular farmers’ market just outside the latter gives you the chance to take some excellent local produce home.

Literature lovers will be pleased that Hay-on-Wye lies around an hour’s drive from Walcot, with dozens of bookshops to lose yourself in. You can be in Hereford or Snowdonia in a similar amount of time, or head to the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, Ironbridge. When the drives are this pretty, it won’t feel like hard work.
