Small Bowling Green Farm, Peplow, Mkt Drayton
Small Bowling Green Farm is found in the heart of the North Shropshire countryside in a charming peaceful location. The hamlet of Peplow is based around the Grade 11* listed Peplow Hall and Estate and indeed this property was originally part of the Estate, acting as the Estate hostelry during harvest periods, until it was privately purchased in 1923.
In spite of its rural location the property enjoys easy access to local amenities. The thriving village of Hodnet has a number of bespoke shops including village shop, post office, florist, garage and pub as well as a primary school with a nursery for the under fives, attached doctors’ surgery and Church. A greater variety of services can be found in the local market town of Market Drayton as well as further afield in the larger conurbations of Telford and Shrewsbury. The area is extremely well served educationally with both private and state primary and secondary schools. The peaceful rural location belies the fact that it is situated only three miles from the A41 and consequently is well placed for access to the A5 and M54 motorway.
This stunning area of North Shropshire is particularly popular with walkers and cyclists who all enjoy combining the benefits of rural living with the convenience of nearby facilities.

The house is accessed from the side via a tiled entrance hall which leads past the downstairs WC to the kitchen. The farmhouse-style kitchen is well fitted with a full range of units with space for appliances. Adjacent is the dining room which has a log burning stove and beyond this, formed in the original part of the house, is the sitting room which runs the full width of the property.
Stairs rise from the sitting room to the first floor and to three substantial bedrooms. The master, which has a fabulous large picture window with views towards Peplow Church, has an en-suite shower room whilst the two further bedrooms utilise a family bathroom.
Attached to the house is a double garage which is currently fully boarded and divided into two parts, one forming storage and the other a model railway room which could equally be altered to provide home office or workspace. This area would provide the perfect footprint for extension of the current house, subject to the necessary planning consents.
The gardens are particularly attractive; a lawned garden is flanked by well-stocked borders packed with a multitude of interesting shrubs, trees and flowers and the front garden is host to a selection of attractive roses and climbing plants. A timber framed gazebo is well situated to take full advantage of the views over the garden to the water feature at the end, and currently houses a hot tub which could be available by separate negotiation if required. At the rear of the garden is a substantial workshop which has power and light connected. There is extensive gravelled parking space.
