Four cottage-style apartments on the edge of the pretty market town of Ellesmere in the heart of Shropshire’s lake district, next to one of the most beautiful canals in the country
Welcome to Mereside Farm
Lying amongst the beautiful north Shropshire countryside, Mereside Farm has, for over 20 years, been offering a variety of mini-cottages in beautifully converted agricultural buildings. Whether taking a short break, a holiday, visiting family or friends, or working in the area, the farm’s individually styled, attractively presented, fully equipped and spotlessly clean, self-contained accommodation offers you a space to live, not just sleep.
Choose a short break (our minimum stay is two nights), or up to a month or more, all year round. All accommodation has underfloor heating; unlimited, free superfast broadband; ample, free off-road parking; and plenty of thoughtful touches – including a welcome pack – to make your stay an especially comfortable one. Longer breaks are discounted and include a weekly visit from our housekeeping team to change sheets and towels, and clean your rooms.
Bring your walking boots, dog (your four-legged friend is welcome in The Old Dairy and The Shippon), bike (there are lots of cycle routes in the area, plus we have a secure cycle lock-up), binoculars and camera (there’s abundant birdlife in the surrounding waters, stunning sunrises over The Mere, and sunsets along the canal).
Ideally located, Mereside Farm is just half a mile from the centre of Ellesmere and its welcoming mix of independent shops and cafes. These include high-quality delis, with local and home-made food to take away, and The Boathouse, a 5-minute flat walk from the farm’s gate, and which is open for breakfast, lunches and afternoon teas.
