    • “An amazing time at the corn house”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We have just stayed here for the bank holiday weekend for my 50th birthday we hired the corn house and the spinney retreat for our family and some friends as there was 12 of us altogether. We have had an amazing few days the house is brilliant there was plenty of room for all of us. The kitchen is really well equipped has everything you need, was a big help having two fridges in there to cope with all the food we took. Our bedroom was lovely plenty of room and storage space. Our grandchildren loved the play area and so did the adults playing Tennis and basketball and also going on the go karts shame weather wasn't a bit nicer. The men also spent a lot of time in the games rooms having competitons against each other. Our friends who stayed in the Spinney Retreat said how lovely and peaceful it was. Cant wait to go back again great place for us to all get together .”

The go-karts were a success with the adult children too! Excellent butcher in Much Wenlock! Lovely countryside to visit. We had a superb time and would love to go back another year.”

    • “The accommodation was extremely well equipped and most comfortable, it was the proverbial home from home. The location was great too perfect for visits to towns such as Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Much Wenlock and Church Stretton. The cottage is also in a great location for accessing footpaths, off-road cycling tracks and bridleways. The owner, Sara Jones, is extremely helpful and friendly.”

    • “The barn was very well furnished although I felt that the lower groundfloor bedroom did not have much drawer space for two people and the ensuite could have had a larger sink to enable you to wash if you did not use the shower.The steps down to the lower floor were rather steep and my elderly father found them difficult to use.On a plus point it was very comfortable and I liked the top floor bedroom with ensuite.It would have been nice to have wifi which comes in useful if you are planning a day out or need contact by email.However the owner was obliging if you needed to use their connection at the house.It was a lovely setting and easy to find.Just wish the weather could have been better!”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The cottage is very clean and spacious. We all with 4 hearing dogs for Deaf People love this cottage, had a great time. Nice garden, but could not go into the garden very often due to ongoing raining! The TV is small and old, played the Wii on this TV, but have to be closer as the screen is quite small! The location was not too bad, but a lots of narrow roads and no shop near by. We have done a lots of walking, had a map from the cottage, but it wasn't clear as we got lost few times! Had a great lunch at Ironbridge.”

    Mrs Harkins, Musselburgh, July 2015

    • “The whole ambience was fantastic, a real home from home. The children could play outside without any worry for their safety, which allowed the adults to relax. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable experience and the attention to detail was second to none.”

    Mr Turner, Todmorden, December 2014

    • “Such a beautiful week in Corn House for my birthday with my family and dogs. Dogs absolutely loved running round grounds and didn't want to leave. Overwhelmed by the kindness of staff and how helpful they were. The kitchen and utensils could not be faulted, everything you would ever need and more. I would like to say a massive thank you for a very enjoyable stay by all.”

    Mrs Dudley, Oldbury, November 2014

    • “It was a wonderful cottage which we would surely book again. The facilities were great and catered for our family from a 7 to a 70 year old. It was safe for the children to play out and use the go carts and tennis courts, they also liked collecting the fresh eggs from the hen house! I would definitely recommend this cottage.”

About the location


Church Stretton 7 miles; Much Wenlock 7 miles.

The pretty village of Cardington lies amongst the rolling hills of the South Shropshire countryside. Cardington boasts the oldest pub in Shropshire – The Royal Oak, mentioned in the Domesday Book! Its rural situation is ideal for sightseeing, with miles of country walks in all directions, not to mention the beautiful Shropshire hills - a draw for walkers, riders and nature lovers alike! A wealth of birdlife (including buzzards, woodpeckers and ravens) has its home here. Acton Scott Historic Working Farm, Severn Valley Steam Railway, Stokesay Castle, Shrewsbury, Ludlow and the Ironbridge Gorge, with its 10 museums, are each less than 15 miles away. The attractive market towns of Church Stretton (known as "Little Switzerland" by the Victorians) and Much Wenlock are both close by and offer a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants. A superb location!
