Situation: The village of Clive is considered to be one of the most exclusive villages in North Shropshire. The village has a thriving community centred on All Saints Church and its village hall. Other amenities include a post office/village stores, garage, Church of England primary school, Clive Medical Practice and The Inn at Grinshill, which is one mile distant. Clive is situated just off the A49 and the B5476. There is a railway station nearby, on the Welsh Marches Line, at Yorton, between Wem and Shrewsbury. There are several trains a day which go between Shrewsbury, Crewe and London Euston (2hr 36 min). The village is served by bus routes to nearby towns Wem, Shrewsbury and Whitchurch.

The main cottage was built by a quarry master from the nearby Grinshill quarry. Originally a two up two down with animals sheds, the property has been reconfigured over time to a Georgian rendered façade. Its original sandstone origins can be seen upon entry from the rear, with two storey projecting elevations complimented by a flat roofed link which has provides the main entrance via a long hallway. Noteworthy features to the property are the highly distinctive octagonal chimney pots, reputedly the tallest in the village. The property fronts the road to the start of the High Street leading into the centre of the village. It also stands at a T junction to New Street (a backwater lane). Positioned to the southeast corner of its plot the gardens extend off its western elevation. The plot is enclosed by a sandstone wall which provides total privacy.

Directions: From the Audi garage roundabout take the A528, signed Ellesmere, Wem and Albright Hussey Hotel. Stay on this road, which passes through Harmer Hill, and continue on the right fork (B5476). After approximately one mile, turn right at the crossroads, signed Clive and Yorton. Follow the road, which takes you into the village of Clive where Dolphin Cottage, 1 High Street is placed to the start of the High Street on the left-hand side, opposite Field Drive.
