    “The Rectory Cottage was clean and well equipped and ideally situated for the many attractions, walks and National Trust sites.”

    The quiet situation of the cottage was surprising in view of the location and was just a few minutes from the main road which enable good access to both Shrewsbury and Telford. we would most certainly recommend this cottage and return to it in the future,
