Guest Reviews


    • “Family break with parents and inlaws”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Great accommodation, the layout was ideal for us. One bedroom is isolated from the main accommodation by an outside walk and a flight of stairs. Well appointed and cosy, We all love it. Only downside was the compulsory drive to anywhere. This didn't present any major issue, but the nearest pub is a long walk!”

    • “Ideal accommodation for three couples, as three en-suite bedrooms and shared kitchen/diner/sitting area. One disadvantage; access from ground floor bedroom to living area reached by outside steps. Also number of steps can be a struggle for those less able. Owners very friendly and helpful, A nice touch;- a welcome hamper and cake.”

    • “Fantastic cottage, brilliant owners, fabulous countryside”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “There were 5 of us staging, as a break from family/work life. The cottage itself is amazing - large bright rooms, beautifully renovated, smart bedrooms (all en-suite) and a living area (sitting, eating, cooking) made cosy by a wood fired stove. Located just a few miles out from Tenbury, we found time to take a couple of walks to the town. Be sure to take in the amazing Church (I think it is now a school) and definitely take time to have a drink of two in the Pembroke House pub because it's lovely (and also, the first one you will see entering from that side of the town!) The owners (Graham and Polly) are also lovely. The fire was already roaring as we arrived and we were left with a lovely hamper. There were also all the bits-and-bobs you need (check with them first to see if they have it in the cottage - we needn't have bought cooking oil, washing up liquid etc.). Graham kindly booked us a table at one of the local restaurants and both he and Polly were happy to chat with us, but also left us well alone to enjoy our weekend. I am planning to return, this time with the family”

    • “Ideal relaxing holiday”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We chose this property after searching through almost all the other properties Sykes cottages had to offer. It didn't disappoint. The owners are lovely and live in a house that is just opposite the barn, so if you have any issues you don't have to go far to mention them, we let graham know about an issue with the living room door and it was sorted within an hour. The barn is designed in a way that you are not overlooked by anyone, including owners next door. We liked the fact that you are out in the countryside but don't have far to go to local towns for shopping and there are plenty of pubs and restaurants nearby to eat. Tenbury wells is only 3 miles away and Ludlow is 8 miles away. The walking in the local area was great, we did 2 local circular walks in shobdon and yarpole, the leaflets for these were in the property, we also did circular walks in Wyre forest which was only 30 minute drive away. I can't say enough good things about this property, it is very comfortable, well equipped and the quality of the fittings and equipment is excellent. We loved our stay and would highly recommend to others.”

    Mrs Sagar, Keighley, August 2015

    • “We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Raddle Bank House. On arrival we were made very welcome by the owners. The converted barn had just the right mix of old and contemporary. The beams and high ceilings were beautiful and even more modern features like the windows were done in keeping with the feel of the barn. This was my ninth self catering holiday home and was the best yet I highly recommend it.”

    Mrs Mason, Larbert, July 2015

    • “The cottage was situated in a beautiful setting with stunning views. The balcony was particularly good for sitting out in the evening as it caught the sun. The garden was well maintained. The cottage was spacious and well looked after with quality fittings. It was particularly useful to have all bedrooms en-suite. The owners were very helpful and welcoming. A thoroughly enjoyable time was had by all.”

This bustling town has many individual shops, traditional pubs, cafes and tea rooms and plays host to many festivals throughout the year notably the Applefest in October and Holly and Mistletoe around Christmas. It is home to weekly craft and farmers’ markets and a fully restored Art Deco cinema with a full programme of events. Ludlow, one of the most beautiful towns in Britain offers a medieval street pattern, which remains almost intact and provides an amazing backdrop for the town's regular markets.

Also within easy reach is Church Stretton, known as Little Switzerland, the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge, Leominster, Hereford and Shrewsbury, as well as the Severn Valley Railway, Berrington Hall and Hay-on-Wye, famous for its annual Literary Festival in May/June. An ideal base for exploring the area.
