Wem 5 miles; Ellesmere 6 miles.
The small, scattered village of Northwood, nestles between the pretty Shropshire market towns of Wem and Ellesmere and consists of a handful of houses and an excellent pub with adjoining restaurant. Historic Wem, home of the infamous Jeffrey's “the hanging” Judge and renowned for its real ales and the modern Sweet Pea flower, has provided a central point for local trade since Saxon times and its weekly market still holds this tradition, attracting visitors from across the county. The beautiful town of Ellesmere, with its Medieval streets littered with Georgian and Victorian houses and quaint, half-timbered buildings, is situated just 6 miles away, amidst an area known as Shropshire's Lakeland and offers an abundance of shops, pubs and fine restaurants. Take a boat trip across the magnificent glacial mere out onto the Llangollen canal or enjoy a leisurely stroll through the picturesque Aboretum and Cremorne Gardens with its wonderful wildlife and scenic walks. Stokesay Castle, medieval Shrewsbury and Ludlow and the fascinating museums at Ironbridge are all within easy reach. A lovely location, with something for everyone.

The cottage was so warm and comfortable, enough space for all 10 of us and lovely modern bedrooms.
Mrs Yeomans, Worcester, March 2013
Every need was catered for, plus more!
Miss Pardoe, Wolverhampton, January 2013
Everything was perfect and so welcoming. There was even a TV times, chocolates on the tree, a box of chocolates on the kitchen table and fairy lights in the kitchen. We did a lot of cooking over Christmas and we were not short of any equipment, pots or pans. The house was warm and cosy and the walks near the house were wonderful.
Mrs Forrest, Macclesfield, December 2012
Lovely big kitchen which was very well equipped.
Mrs Rogers, Northampton, October 2012
The house was the best holiday let we have been to. The kitchen was to die for it had everything anybody could possibly want and the whole place was spotlessly clean we would recommend it to anybody.
Mrs Hayward, Buckie, October 2012

Mrs Gray, Hartlepool, October 2012
The location and standard of the property was outstanding. All my dealings with Sykes have been excellent as well. Thoroughly recommend this property as well as Sykes.
Mr Shannon, Stockton-on-Tees, July 2012
The house had a fabulous kitchen, a wonderful garden and comfortable beds. Plenty of pots and pans, loads of space, and the local pub served reasonably priced food. Easily the best house we have ever rented and we have been renting cottages and houses for several years now.
Mr Hunter, Sheffield, June 2012
We particularly liked the kitchen/diner and the garden which suited our needs admirably.
Mrs Young, Thetford, June 2012
Top House was overall an excellent holiday property. We especially liked the huge kitchen diner with the doors which we could fold right back to open on to the patio and lovely garden. As we were lucky with the weather, we made very good use of this feature.
