Guest Reviews


    • “Beautiful gardens, spacious accommodation, fabulous owners”

    • “The location is picturesque and gardens were amazing. We did a little fishing, played football on the tennis courts and my son had a great time running around the huge gardens. Unfortunately despite being august it was too cold to use the pool. The location was perfect but a car is essential. Not a lot is within walking distance, but with a car it was perfectly located to explore the local area. Bewdely was great, and during the school holidays had lots of activities on. It also has a great selection of pubs, restaurants and ice cream shops. There was no mobile signal at the property which is a good or a bad thing depending on what sort of holiday you want, when we were there, there was no wi-fi but this may have changed now. The owners were lovely and the accommodation was spacious and had everything we needed. We tried to book again the following summer but it was already booked up by the time we got organised. I would definitely recommend it.”

    • “This cottage is light and spacious. The shared gardens are lovely with someone working on them most days. Then owner is friendly and helpful .The cottage is attached to the owners home, there is a communicating door (bolt on 'your ' side) however cigarette smell filtered through into the Non smoking cottage which was a bit off putting. The sofa and armchairs are rather low which could prove difficult for older people staying there. There are two TVs both quite small . The bedroom is very large with quite the most comfortable bed we have ever slept on! When I turned the oven on to heat it up it smoked so much it set the smoke alarm off! We didn't use it after that.”

    Mr Hull, Bognor Regis, June 2015

    • “The garden was like being in a local park, complete with a large pond with a female duck and 15 ducklings who came up the garden to visit us every day, they were delightful. The accommodation was excellent with a really comfortable large bed and the owner was very hospitable helpful and charming. All in all it was one of the best cottages we have stayed in and hopefully we will be returning.”

    Mrs Clark, Prestwick, July 2014

    • “This beautiful little cottage was a haven of tranquility in the beautiful Wyre Forest. The lounge / dining room was spacious, yet had a warm and cosy feel during our winter stay. The large bedroom with its very big bed, was everything that could be desired. The extensive grounds are beautifully maintained and provide a lovely place to meander. All in all, delightful!”

About the location


Bewdley 5 miles; Cleobury Mortimer 6 miles.

The small, rural village of Button Bridge quietly nestles in the beautiful countryside of South Shropshire between Bridgnorth and Bewdley. Just a short drive away, beneath the shadow of the mystical Clee Hills, the pretty town of Cleobury Mortimer provides a refreshing selection of shops, pubs and restaurants in an array of Georgian and Tudor architecture and a striking parish church with an unusual, twisted spire. Enjoy excellent walking, golf and fishing in the surrounding Clee Hills and nearby Wyre Forest. The market town of Bridgnorth, with its winding streets and infamous castle ruins is within easy reach, presenting an ideal opportunity for a trip on the Severn Valley Railway, while the medieval town of Ludlow, with its superb 13th century castle, fascinating antique shops and choice of Michelin-starred restaurants is well worth a visit. Discover the Ironbridge Gorge Museum, visit Stokesay Castle, or spend a day at the West Midland Safari Park. There is plenty to see and do, for all the family.
