  • "This was a lovely flat, very clean and cosy, and I received a very warm welcome from the owners."

    The only drawbacks are the short section of unmade lane from the main road to the property, and the slanting ceiling in the bathroom, which would be difficult for anyone tall, but otherwise this was a brilliant place to take in the lovely Shropshire countryside.

    Many thanks for taking time to give feedback. We are pleased the apartment was to your liking and that you enjoyed the Shropshire countryside. We have noted your comments regarding the short approach track to the property - which is in use daily, and hope you noticed that maintenance is in progress. Thanks again for your positive feedback regarding the apartment Property Owner

    Shown around by Dave and was very impressed by how clean the place was, even to the point of being scared of touching anything! lol All facilities were easy to operate and settled in quite easily. though out week, we were left alone, but also enjoyed our friendly chats when we bumped into each other ... usually watching Roxie and Mutley playing together which can be seen on my youtube channel, search Colin badger Mutley on youtube for video :) Dave and Sue were both excellent on the local knowledge of the area, as its perfect for those that enjoy a walk and averaged 15 miles a day. Local shop just down the road, Ludlow and cleobury for drinks and food. Wish Dave and Sue all the best, see you again and a woof to Roxie off Mutley.

    Thank you so much for taking time to write such positive feedback. Very pleased you found everything to your liking and that you enjoyed the local countryside and villages. It was super seeing the dogs playing and having fun in the garden. Lovely to meet you and Mutley. Property Owner

  • "We have stayed at numerous holiday properties in the past, but this has to be one of the best."

    When we stepped through the door we were impressed with how clean the whole place was. The Pinot Grigio and cakes were lovely. There were so many extras which we didn’t expect - toiletries, home made jam, cling film, foil, dog biscuits, tissues, loo rolls (other properties please take note!). The views from the apartment were magnificent and the garden was superb, especially for our four-legged friend. The property is perfect for two people and a dog and had everything we needed for a really pleasant stay. Dave and Sue were very relaxed and accommodating and we felt at home as soon as we arrived. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.

    Thank you so much for your fabulous feedback and that you liked the little extras! It was lovely to meet you both and so pleased you found the apartment so comfortable. Many thanks also for passing on your recommendations - word of mouth speaks volumes. Property Owner

    Very clean, well equipped and nice touches like Sue's homemade cakes & jam. Very grateful for the milk especially after a long drive. These little extras just an example of how the owners Dave & Sue go that little bit further. Set back from the main road, the garden was safe & secure for our dog & the surrounding common an ideal area to walk the dog. Situated quite centrally so allowing us to explore Shropshire & into Wales. We go all over with Sykes Cottages but if we decide to return to this area we couldn't do better than this apartment. Thanks Dave, Sue & Roxy for a great week.

  • "The accommodation was exactly as the photos led to believe (although the table was in the downstairs part of the flat and not upstairs)."

    The property was spotlessly clean and furnished to a high standard. I would have liked a table upstairs (I took my laptop to get some work done) and more kitchen storage but these were minor inconveniences that didn't affect our enjoyment (as was the lack of wifi which doesn't reach from next door into the property - but I had plenty of mobile data to work with) The owners (and their dog) were very friendly and we bumped into them several times - and they had left several welcoming gifts (wine, cake, milk/tea/juice) which were gratefully received. There was adequate parking/turning space in front of the property and plenty of room to walk on the 'common' around the property. We used the property as a base to explore (with our dog) the Carding Mill and the Long Mynd, Ludlow and were rewarded with some fantastic views. We can also recommend Ludlow farm shop on the outskirts of Ludlow (although I'm not sure my waistline would agree))
