Previous visitors' comments about The Olde Cowshed:
Excellent location for walking and visiting the nearby towns. The cottage was well appointed, nice and cosy particularly in the heavy snowfalls during the week.
Mr Shaw, Stockport, February 2013
The family that own the cottages were just brilliant. They were at hand to help with anything we needed and when I left part of my blender in one of the cottages, they posted it back to me and didn't even charge me for the postage. They were just fantastic. The cottages were beautiful and we are already planning when we will visit again as the area and walks in Shropshire were fantastic as well. Incredibly comfortable place to stay and reasonably priced. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone and will definitely be visiting again.
Mrs Wilson, London, June 2012
The whole area is peaceful and it's an excellent area for walking. There are also some excellent places to eat in the area.
Mrs Brittain, Wellingborough, October 2011
