Great location to visit the area! The cottage was beautifully decorated and we did not need to worry about anything. Peaceful and quiet. A perfect cottage in a picturesque location.
Ms Gardiner, Derby, August 2012
The Byre is in first class condition on a working farm in lovely surrounding countryside. We could not fault anything at all wrong with the property or decor and furnishings, all very tasteful. We loved the peaceful atmosphere set on a woodland edge. Thank you.
Mr Naylor, Leyland, June 2012
The Byre is a generously proportioned and very well presented property. It is fitted with every appliance that you would need for a home-from-home holiday. It is set in lovely quiet surroundings. Ditton Priors is mid way between Bridgnorth and Ludlow so perfect for exploring the Shropshire area without the need to drive too far. We would recommend this property.
