Previous visitors' comments about The Calf Kit:
We dropped on the perfect weather but it really wouldn't have bothered us for the Calf Kit and the delights of Shropshire were superb. Warm and friendly folk, great food and drink and a brilliant gaff for the week.
Mr Miles, Sheffield, September 2011
The location of the cottage was ideal; it was close to the main towns and tourist attractions in the area but set far enough away from the main roads to be in the country. The fruit cake, wine and chocolate left by the owner was a nice touch. The owner was very friendly.
The cottage was spacious and it had a nice feel when you arrived and opened the door for the first time. It was tastefully decorated, no clutter collecting dust.
