    • “No problem with the service, very friendly. Cottage was cosy, even though it was winter. Lots of bedding to keep u toasty warm. Fishing according to my husband, was enjoyable. Something for us both to do with the village a short drive away. Close to plenty of day trips, found it quite central for most things.”

    • “The cottage is something to recommend to other people. It's as if you are staying in your own home, so complete. We would recommend the owners to include the possibility of renting a bike with the cottage. It is the only thing we,Dutch people, missed. We would certainly like to come back here.It's a pity that there is a noisy road running nearby. The location itself is beautiful but has been spoilt by the loud traffic.”

    • “Lovely cottage and location - just a little noisy”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This is a pretty and well-furnished cottage, set in a predominantly rural location, but close to a fairly busy A-road. The 2 double beds are both proper doubles (rather than twins pushed together) and the facilities and living spaces will comfortably accommodate 4 adults or a small family. Any more and it would get quite cosy! The facilities are good; with 2 bathrooms, a decent shower, beds with electric blankets, a dishwasher and freesat TV being on offer (unusual for a holiday cottage to find all of these) and the kitchen was stocked with basics like teabags etc. The Wifi didn’t work inside the cottage the whole time we were there, however we never brought this up with the owners so it’s possible it could have been a temporary issue. The cottage itself was generally clean and tidy, though could have done with a bit of dusting in some areas (under the bed, behind doors etc). You’ll need to bring bathroom basics like handwash and toilet rolls. We didn’t do any fishing ourselves, but judging by the comments in the visitor’s book there is plenty there to catch. The view over the small lake is lovely, especially first thing in the morning. However I’m not sure how relaxing an alfresco meal by the water would be, given the volume of traffic noise from the road. This is perhaps not the ideal location for those seeking total seclusion or for very light sleepers. Those sleeping in the 2nd bedroom will need to be prepared to deal with the noise from the extractor fans in both bathrooms, as they are fairly loud and one runs for several minutes after switching off the lights. Either that or be prepared to conduct your night-time bathroom visits in the dark! In terms of attractions, the cottage is within 40 mins of Shrewsbury and 1 hour of Chester, both of which are very picturesque; provide good shopping, eating and pleasant walks. The smaller town of Market Drayton is closer, but doesn’t offer much in the way of entertainment (apart from the Hinds Head Inn which is located in one of the neighbouring villages and does excellent food – very much deserving of its #1 spot on trip advisor). Rosehill appeared to be very sparse in terms of population, though we did see 1 or 2 local pubs within 5 mins drive of the cottage. We only stayed for 3 days so didn’t get time to visit any of the other local towns or points of interest, as there are many to choose from. We found a couple of good walks, but did need to drive to get to the set-off points. The local chip shop garnered a number of positive comments in the visitor’s book, though again we didn’t try it ourselves, but we did have breakfast on the last day at the Farm Shop at Fordham, which was excellent.”

    • “A great cottage with a lovely vista over a lake. Good location with several things to do nearby. we had fun running through a maize maze and hiking a trail. the weather was amazing too! There were a few spiders in the house and it would have been nice to have a few more of the basics (oil for cooking etc), or working wifi / ipod dock etc.”

    • “An excellent holiday for a family, especially if you like fishing. The property was well cared for and the hosts were very friendly.”

    Mrs Burt, Stourport-on-Severn, September 2014

    • “We stayed at Lakeside Cottage in May 2013 and enjoyed our stay there very much - everything was perfect except for the weather, fishing was also very good. The family running the complex were very friendly, polite and helpful . We decided to return again and this time the weather was very good, making our stay even more enjoyable. We visited many places in the surrounding areas which we also enjoyed. The whole holiday was a complete success. Will definitely return again.”

    Mr Taylor, Nottingham, June 2014

    • “Very nice cottage in lovely surroundings. When we walked round the beautiful lake we realised how much work and dedication has gone into making this place a special spot. We all felt at ease in the cottage and found the owners friendly. We would go back there any time.”

    Mrs Brenda, Wirral, May 2014

    • “A very big thank you to the owner for the wonderful welcome, and a big thank you to Sykes Cottages. I travelled from Africa, and would say this was one of the most enjoyable stays in Market Drayton.”

    Mrs Thompson, Harare, April 2014

    • “We had a lovely stay. This was a beautiful cottage: warm and cosy with high quality finish - and we loved the view over the lake from bed.”
