We booked a 3 night break in January this year. Well, we arrived at this lovely cottage it was cosy and very welcoming, the instructions were so helpful. The highlight for my husband after all that was the wonderful snow that fell, we had a wonderful time and would definately recommend.

The property is an ideal place for those who crave privacy and a holiday in a quiet, semi-rural location. The walks are literally on your doorstep and the views are great. If you're quite fit you can walk down to the town and back - Church Stretton is a lovely town with lots of charm, and a handy supermarket !
