    • “Gor the dairy instead so people who had booked didnt have to move out & back in. Very lovely people & dog, Molly on working farm in very quiet area. Barn owl flew over car on approach to house. So cosy & had everything we needed for weekend break. One place I would go back to & not just for homemade cake on arrival. Did find farm hard to find due to lack of lighting on road through but no real problem”

    • “On arrival made to feel very welcome by the host & nothing was too much trouble.The cottage was ideally situated to explore Shropshire . The setting of the cottage was excellent , lovely views & very quiet & secluded.”

    Mr Dennis, Norwich, September 2014

    • “The owners were very friendly and we even got home baked cakes upon our arrival which was a lovely thought after a long journey. Although in a peaceful setting, the cottage was central to explore many aspects of Shropshire. The information provided by the owners, everything from the local shops to what went where with regards to our rubbish was exceptionally good, as was the amount of literature provided regarding places and events in the area.”

    Mrs Brinkworth, CHATHILL, June 2014
