    • “Fantastic Stay in a Great Place”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We were a party of 10 guys staying here - and in the connected Corn House - for a walking weekend. The properties are of a very high standard, very comfortable and in a great location. The owners of the farm are lovely and their two recommendations were great: 1. The local pub in Cardington, which does great food and beer 2. The caterers who they helped me to arrange to come in to cook a 3 course meal on Saturdya night after a long day of walking were superb. We had a delcicious meal and then all fell asleep in front of a lovely hot wood burning stove in one of the sitting rooms. To Howard and Sarah, the farm owners, thank so much from all of us! Ian”

    • “We have just got back from a lovely relaxing stay at Turnip House. The cottage is very spacious with large living room & wood-burning stove, kitchen/ dining area, two double bedrooms (1 en-suite four-poster) and two twin rooms, utility area, two fridges, separate bathroom with roll-top bath. We had two patio areas with table and chairs and a BBQ. The cottage is one of 3/4 on a working farm, with lovely views over the surrounding hills. One of the highlights for me was being surrounded by the lovely animals, especially the horses and chickens. We fed the pigs and horses daily and collected fresh eggs from the chickens. It was surprisingly very peaceful. There is also two games rooms with pool table, table tennis, darts, table football etc. They are also building a large indoor badminton/ tennis courts at the moment (though we were not in the slightest disturbed by the noise). There is a 2 mile circular walk within the farm grounds, which was very pleasant. Mobile phone reception is not great in this area, but there is a pay phone within the cottage if needed. As we were staying for a family birthday, we booked a function room at the Royal Oak pub in Cardington for a meal one evening (25 people), which is a 2 mile walk from the cottage. The meal and service were both very good and we were allowed to decorate the room and bring our own cake for desert. Overall I cannot recommend the cottage highly enough and would love to come back for another visit, the only slight negative is that there were a few cobwebs in the property that perhaps are difficult for the cleaners to reach because of the high ceilings. We also found that some noise came through the walls from next door into the first floor double bedroom.”

    Mrs Blackwood, Corby, October 2015

    Mrs Cornwell, Manchester, July 2015

    • “This is a hidden gem. A wonderful peaceful location set on a working farm. We were accompanied by our daughter, her partner and our two grandchildren, aged 1 and 2 years, they thoroughly enjoyed seeing the animals and the various play activities. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners and the local information supplied was excellent.”

My 20 month old granddaughter loved the cars and grandad loved the go-carts and tractors. Everything you need in the cottage - infant toys, board games, books, crayons and cuddly toys. Games room with table-tennis and billiards so ideal also for teenagers.”

    Mrs Blake, Tamworth, September 2014

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!
