  • "Excellent property which was exactly as described on the website."

    The hosts were very helpful and friendly. Location ideal and would recommend visiting Ludlow castle for those staying. Plenty of pubs within a 5min drive, recommend The Fountain for afternoon lunch. We would have no hesitation in staying at the Wainhouse Cottage in the future.

  • "We had a brilliant Bank Holiday weekend stay at The Wainhouse."

    We were a family of 10 with 4 generations from age 2 - 86 and we all loved it. The house is amazing, very spacious, modern and clean, with plenty of seating and bathrooms. I'd never been in a hot tub before but loved it, everyone enjoyed the farm and local walks. Thank you to the hosts, who were great + lovely food at The Fountain

  • "We loved our stay at the Wainhouse which we found clean and comfortable and spacious for 7 people."

    It would have been good to have had some laundry liquid or tablets and more than x3 dishwasher tablets for a Mon-Fri stay. The hot tub was fabulous and seated all 7 of us comfortably. All in all an excellent house.

  • "We had a wonderful time and the owners welcomed us to the farm and we really enjoyed watching the lambing, this was a real highlight for us."

    We did think that the house was in need of a little updating as it lots of things felt very squeeky and loose (some toilets, floorboards and beds etc) as well as some shower areas having some mould. However the house was clean and the hot tub spotless - again one of our highlights. Given the distance from other places probably not somewhere we would return to - but if we were going in April again maybe so - just for the lambing!!

    Thank you so much for staying at The Wainhouse, it was a pleasure to have your group with us. We thank you for your feedback on your stay, we're glad to hear that you was happy with the cleanliness of our house as we take great pride in hosting a memorable experience for our guests. We don't feel the property needs updating and this is the first comment we have received, but we appreciate everyone has their own opinions. Should there have been any issues during your stay, our contact details are provided and we are at hand to help. Should you be traveling again in April we would love to have you back. Property Owner

  • "Fabulous weekend, beautiful, rural, farm and surroundings, the well equipped house suited our family very well."

    The children loved the trampoline and playground equipment. We all enjoyed the hot tub and the gorgeous rural walks. The farm dogs and other animals provided extra special memories which will remain with us and helped to make it a very special time.

  • "A really lovely place to relax and enjoy time with the family."

    We enjoyed the hot tub after days out and walks in the countryside straight from the barn. The barn itself was well equipped and very comfortable for a large group, and lovely to see the animals on the farm and resident dogs. A truly great place to escape to!

    It was, however, a challenge to cook a Christmas dinner for nine people with a single oven. However we would return aa we had a lovely relaxing holiday. Pip the dog was a brilliant tour guide for our daily walks and we are sorry for making him late for work haha. Thank you for your hospitality.

  • "Super accommodation for the whole family."

    Well equipped and spotlessly clean. Having a dining table to seat ten was great. Plenty of space, comfortable and also a lovely garden area. The children’s play area was a great bonus and there was a lovely walk up to the woods. The flowers, biscuits and wine were a nice extra.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and it was great to see some of what goes on at the farm, children loved seeing the tractors. Owners very friendly and helpful, a really super place that enabled us to get together and have some quality time together.

    We stay away in holiday lets 5 - 6 times a year and have paid half the price for far superior furnishings/fittings. The location was as expected but we expected a nice view, not a fence. The owners were extremely pleasant and helpful but in the whole we thought it very poor value

    It’s too far to walk to the nearest pub which was fine for us, plenty to see and do in the local area. Loved the area and the place we are a family of 8, so the house was more than adequate fir us all. The hot tub was a lovely added bonus. We will definitely go back.
