  • "Cannot fault the accommodation 'Curleys Cottage' in Much Wenlock."

    Beautifully presented, all mod cons, logs for wood burner, fantastic welcome pack of scones, jam and clotted cream, milk on the fridge, and containers with tea and coffee. A big plus was that all the local amenities were a short walk away. Handy parking outside too. On a cold dark evening we had the fire burning and watched a film on the amazing TV with its incredible sonos speakers! Highly recommended!!

  • "A 5 night stay over the New Year for our family of four."

    Beautiful, well equipped cottage situated in a very convenient position in a lovely small town. Fabulous pub just a few steps away serving a tasty roast dinner at reasonable prices. The cottage was spotlessly clean and beautifully presented. Everything we needed was provided and all of the fittings and furnishing were of excellent quality. The beds were comfy and we all slept well. The kitchen was especially welcoming with every type of glass, bowl, plate and utensil that you could need. The log burner made the lounge so cosy it was difficult to drag ourselves away from it. We found a lot to keep us occupied in the area visiting Wenlock Abbey, Ironbridge, Ludlow , Bridgnorth and enjoying a New Years Day walk along Wenlock Edge. We would love to return at another time of year when the weather is a little warmer to enjoy the surrounding countryside
