    “My response to your questions ...”
    My response to your questions cannot give a true answer, I could say that everything was excellent because I chose this property because it is central to the area we wished to visit. It is somewhat remote, there are narrow lanes for access but by studying the map it is easy to get about. The facilities at the property are excellent but one thing to note is that hot water is by immersion or log burner, logs provided, I got very proficient with it. We may not re-visit this area again having seen ...

The property

Maesbrook 1 mile.

A delightful, character country cottage, in a rural setting near to the owners' farmhouse in 27 acres of farm and meadow land, nestling on the Anglo/Welsh border.

Just 7 miles south of the market town of Oswestry and easily commutable to the historic towns of Shrewsbury, Chester and Ironbridge, this Shropshire cottage is an ideal touring base.

Perfectly situated for National Trust and English Heritage properties, World Heritage sites, as well as a wealth of designated footpaths and bridleways, this cottage offers guests a comfortable, homely base for exploring the local area and all it has to offer, and if you travel a little further you can find yourself relaxing at the coast.

If its peace and tranquillity you're after, this fully renovated Shropshire cottage offers the perfect retreat.

Retaining much of its original character and charm, it boasts exposed beams downstairs and a large, cosy woodburner in the sitting room, where you can sit and relax after a day exploring the area.

The sun lounge offers an alternative place to sit, and with countryside views on three sides, it is the perfect location for a little wildlife spotting.

Step outside and enjoy alfresco dining in the private country garden or enjoy long, peaceful walks in all directions and at night, spot badgers, foxes and owls in abundance.

This is an ideal cottage for a small family or romantic retreat at any time of year.
