The rural location and awe-inspiring views from Papermill House belie the fact that it is situated only one mile from the A49 and consequently is well placed for access to connected towns, cities and commuter routes. The historic market town of Shrewsbury, which boasts 660 listed buildings and is a mecca for shoppers and tourists alike, offers copious individual and national shops as well as an excellent selection of both private and state primary and secondary schools.

The market town of Wem has a number of bespoke shops, a small supermarket and a train station offering regular transport to Shrewsbury and Crewe with onward connections, as well as a well reputed secondary school. Closer to home there is a thriving local community in Stanton Upon Hine Heath centred around the church and popular local pub.
The adjacent village of Shawbury has a small supermarket, butcher, delicatessen, garage, medical centre and primary school.

Originally a sandstone small house, the property has been extended a number of times over the last 20 years and therefore has an unusual 'H' shaped layout. However the extension programme has successfully retained the original charm of the cottage and careful planning has ensured lovely views from nearly every room.  Relatively low ceilings create a cosy atmosphere and the sitting room is spacious, opening out onto attractive decking which is perfect for taking in the scenery.  Similarly the Garden Room, off the kitchen/diner, has panoramic windows to take full advantage of the views whilst being snug in the winter.  The property has a calm and tranquil feel and is extremely privately situated.

A comprehensive range of outbuildings include a workshop and storage space along with an outdoor bar and 'play room'. These buildings could easily be altered to provide stabling or stock housing or for alternative business use, subject to any necessary planning consents. The useful pasture land slopes gently down to the River Roden whose meandering banks form the western boundary of the property. Papermill House is a haven for those with sporting interests.  Fishing on the River Roden, duck flighting from the pond and clay pigeon shooting facilities ensure that life in this rural idyll will never be short of entertainment.

For those with equestrian interests, there are endless riding out opportunities with access to a network of country lanes, off-road tracks and wooded areas.  It really is a place of complete peace and tranquillity.
