  • "If you are after a quit farm retreat but only a few miles from Coalbrookdale this is the place ."

    The cottage was well presented and clean and Paul the farmer and Molley the farm dog are very friendly. If you are into walking/nature and history you won't go far wrong.

  • "The access to the farm is down a 1."

    1 mile single track road with only 2 passing places - very rutted and spent a lot of time reversing up and back (for nearly half a mile a couple of times) unless you have a 4x4 this was not good for the car
