Approximately five acres of land gently sloping with views of the hills and fields around. Easy access to the Shropshire countryside and with a large secluded and sheltered parking bay. The land is bordered along two edges by fence lines, and posts mark the boundary between it and Shelve View next door. The land could be utilised as either a paddock (with the addition of extra fencing) or easily planted with trees to create a long term woodland for the enjoyment of generations to come. the large parking bay has a deep recess which protects from any weather.
Shropshire Council Community Trees Scheme 2022/2023 - applications are invited from people who wish to plant trees and short sections of hedging, and to create small areas of woodland in Shropshire. Additional funding is also available to supply (free of charge) some larger, feathered trees (1-1.5m tall, bare root).
The purchasers of the meadow will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.
Details of local Shropshire grants regarding the planting of trees can be found following this link
Open hedged rather than fenced fields allow wildlife free reign throughout this area. Muntjac, badger, moles, voles, rabbits and much more call this areas home.
Hill View Meadow is next door to Stiperstones National Nature Reserve and is part of the Shropshire Hills AONB.
A truly stunning location, easily accessible and providing huge potential and scope for future generations to enjoy. Bordered by open fields on two sides, and woodland to the other two sides, and surrounding Ritton Castle to the north-west.
Access, tracks and footpaths
Sheep may be on the open fields. Will all visitors kindly NOT BRING THEIR DOGS or maintain them on a very short leash. Thank you.
