Previous visitors' comments about Grange Cottage:
The cottage was quiet and tranquil which was just what we wanted. The hosts are lovely people and made us very welcome. The dog came to check on us everyday and the cats added us to their staff.

Helpful and friendly owners. Incredible peace and quiet in this part of Shropshire. Interesting places within easy reach. This is one of the best staycations we have had!
Mr Meeser, Rochester, September 2012
The cottage was very peaceful and quiet and has a lovely sun room to relax in the evening after a day of sightseeing. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and on hand if needed.

We liked the rural location, it was a very good base to visit lots of National Trust/English Heritage properties and other attractions as well as being a lovely area for walking.
