We loved our holiday at Byre Cottage, it was just the break we needed, we recharged our batteries and thoroughly enjoyed the area. Our hosts were lovely, we found the whole farm lovely, and for a working farm it was so quiet. We would return. There was so much to do, and the scenery was amazing.

Mrs Jordan, Herne Bay, August 2013

The cottage was cosy, compact and clean. The heating was good. We liked being right opposite the cattle shed and watching the young calves. The location was ideal for local attractions, including the Ironbridge museums.

Rev Crook, Eastbourne, April 2013

The cottage was a perfect size for two people and you could control the heating easily so that it was cosy when in, but not wasting energy when out.

Mr Webb, Ashbourne, February 2013

Quiet, peaceful and warm. Perfect for walking in appropriate weather. 10-15 minutes to shopping and local attractions. Overall, really lovely cottage and location.
