    • “Enjoyed our stay in Lea Cross, and had a great week. A nice central location for what we wanted to do and see. Well equipped and spotlessly clean. A nice touch to provide breakfast in the fridge for our first morning.”

    • “A very good, well oppointed cottage, off the main road so very quiet. Close to Shrewsbury and a good pub, with excellent food, nearby. Only downside was that the Wi fi was a bit slow. Will definitely think about coming back in the future.”

    • “A relaxing place to be, wonderful views, not far from Shrewsbury”

    • “We really enjoyed our 4 day Christams break at Garden View Barn, almost in the middle of nowhere! The road was only a hundred metres away but the turn-in wasn't well signposted and we missed it and had to turn round. The cottage was very well equipped and presented. However we did feel that some of the electronic equipment, eg microwave/cooker, TV and CD/ DVD, wa not easy to work. But we overcame this, with help, and had a great few days in this charming retreat with the Welsh hills to gaze at!”

    • “Very good setting and great for a relaxing break.”

    Mr Giles, Stafford, October 2014

    • “It was like home from home, absolutely no scrimping on anything. Lovely furniture and the bed was so comfy I had a lie in most days. The surrounding area beat all my expectations, the Shropshire hills were magnificent, and the cycling was challenging in parts. Can highly recommend.”

    Mr Horton, Prenton, September 2014

    • “Earl's View cottage is very well presented, contains everything you could want in lovely surroundings. Furnished to a high standard and immaculately clean with very friendly owner. I would certainly recommend it to anyone wanting a comfortable, peaceful holiday.”

    Mrs Lawrence, Birmingham, August 2014

    • “Everything about our holiday was exceptional, from the property and the surroundings, right through to our travels around Shropshire. The owners were welcoming and friendly as were their neighbours and we will be returning for another holiday.”

    Miss Webster-Allen, Hull, July 2014

    • “Good location as it was easy to access the main roads in the area. The views from the cottage were very nice and the owners were friendly and helpful. The cottage was very clean and done up to a high standard. There were lots of places to visit in the area.”

    Mr Hooks, Epsom, June 2014

    • “The cottage has a beautiful view over the surrounding countryside and there are many opportunities for walking near the cottage. Shrewsbury is close as is Wales. We enjoyed spending time in the cottage as the accommodation is excellent.”
