  • "Lovely quaint homely cottage with every facility to ensure an enjoyable holiday."

    Short walk to centre with places to eat, drink etc and some nice walks and interesting places to visit in the area. Kind host who made us feel very welcome, we would definitely recommend a visit to Queens Cottage.

  • "Beautiful cosy cottage."

    Has everything you need and the welcome basket was a nice touch! Great location just around the corner from shops, pubs and cafés. Lovely town with many walks straight from your door. We don't drive and had no problems with public transport and getting around. Would love to stay again!

  • "Lovely cottage in a beautiful town!"

    The cottage was very clean and well equipped with everything we could need. On arrival there was a welcome pack which was a nice gesture. It's ideally positioned with shops and local pubs serving food (which we're all good) a few minutes walk away. The only couple of things that could be improved was the lounge carpet which was stained and worn. A foot stool for the chair would make it more comfortable and the windows on the front would help if they opened. Apart from those it was perfect and we will definitely recommend to others.

    It's a cottage so obviously there are steep stairs and the parking can be a problem at various times but the cottage itself had everything you need.

  • "We had a really lovely stay at the cottage but there were a few issues that need addressing."

    Firstly, it doesn't mention when booking that the bedroom and lounge windows do not open. Being a woman of a certain age this was quite a problem. We only found this out by reading the review left by the previous people 2 days before our holiday was due to start. The fan that is supplied needs to be replaced as the blades hardly rotate and is of NO USE whatsoever. Luckily again thanks to the previous people we took along one of our own. Also we were asked to leave the cottage in the same condition as we arrived, which wouldn't have been a problem if the vacuum supplied worked. There was no suction AT ALL. Please replace both vacuum and fan and if something can't be done about the windows then at least state it on the cottage details. Would we stay again ? Yes we would but only as an autumn/winter break so that the windows wouldn't be of such an issue and we could try out the log burner.

  • "The cottage is lovely - comfortable, clean and bright with everything that you could possibly need."

    We shared others' dismay at not being able to open the bedroom window but the dressing room and the shower room windows opened, allowing some air in. The windows downstairs do not open but ventilation is possible via the front (with the chain on) and back doors. The owners' description of "steep stairs" should be noted. Parking is available close by within sight of the cottage. Much Wenlock is delightful as is the surrounding area so there's plenty to do.

  • "We stayed at Queen cottage for New Year’s Eve and my husband and myself were feeling dubious after the previous review however after contacting Sykes we were reassured and have to say excellent management by Sykes."

    What can we say it was better in person and the pictures do not show this cozy cottage at its best and have to say the best equipped holiday rental we have ever been it to. The welcome pack was a nice touch which included Prosecco, chocolates, crisp etc. Location great and we didn’t have any trouble finding a parking spot, you will find all the amenities in the village more than enough and the George & Dragon Inn served excellent food with great hospitality. The only thing we would change would be the kettle due to the scale but all in all a well deserved break and we will definitely be booking this cottage again.

  • "The property was as described and I had a nice stay thank you… the owners left some nice touches (a bag of quality street and had decorated the Christmas tree etc), and were very generous with the fire logs etc."

    so I felt really at home, thank you. It was really nice and warm with central heating and The house had everything anyone could need with utensils etc, and plenty of nice towels etc. I didn’t have a problem with parking at all, my car was parked on the road within sight all 5 nights I stayed. The one negative is that it wasn’t what I would consider spotlessly clean. The kitchen utensils and towels and linen were all clean but the carpet is dirty, as is inside the oven. Overall a nice stay in a cosy cottage, with clearly considerate owners - thank you.

  • "Queens Cottage was not too clean, and a very uncomfortable place to stay."

    There is a very serious problem with the shower that puts out very hot water only and is quite dangerous. This was noted by previous guests but clearly the owners do not care. Typical of British holiday rentals

    Thank you for your feedback. The bathroom at the property is due to be refurbished in February. If you had made us aware of any concerns you had during your stay, we would have happily assisted you at the time. We would like to thank you once again for your feedback. Property Owner

    Really well appointed, lacking nothing. The welcome basket was a really touch too! Also plenty of wood for the wood burner which was really appreciated. The design of the cottage unfortunately means a steep and narrow staircase to navigate, but that is the only downside to report. Parking wasn’t an issue. Would definitely recommend.

    Main issue for us was being unable to open upstairs front window & the fan to keep cool was not adequate. Didn’t realise how steep the stairs were but if you took it slowly & carefully there was no issue ,we appreciate there’s nothing you can do about that. Basin wouldn’t keep the water there , it just kept draining away. Struggled to control the water temperature when in the shower, it was too hot. TV could with an upgrade to a larger model. Parking no problem. We would stay again if we plan on heading that direction again. Welcome pack very much appreciated

    We wanted a really cosy, old (but with modern facilities), character full cottage within an easy walk of a little market town with pubs and shops - and that is exactly what we got. Really great cottage with a nice big kitchen (with all the utensils and cooking items you want), lovely bedroom (fantastically comfortable, big bed), cute lounge with log burner and a small outside area with table and chairs. All the facilities you want and well decorated and kept. And Much Wenlock is beautiful and characterful. 5 pubs, 2 pub restaurants, a pottery (with bar), Indian restaurant and Chinese take-away, great butchers, bakers, 3 coffee/tea cafes, 2 small supermarkets and a friendly deli plus a chocolate shop, all within 3 minutes walk!!!! The stairs are old, and very steep with small steps so whilst they are part of the character of the cottage you need to be mobile enough to navigate them.

    The welcome basket was filled with wonderful goodies - we especially loved the chocolates, a real treat. We only stayed a couple of nights - probably the hottest nights of the year with amazing thunderstorms. We couldn't open the bedroom window so could really have done with a fan but the weather really was extreme when we were there. I would have no hesitation in recommending the cottage and hope to be back sometime.

A romantic retreat resting within the bustling town of Much Wenlock, situated a mere stone’s throw away from the breath-taking Shropshire Hills AONB.

Queens Cottage is an idyllic base for a couple seeking to explore all of the delights of this town, as well as the surrounding countryside which is superb for those who enjoy walking and exploring the outdoors.

Be welcomed into the sitting room, where you will find a wonderful blend of contemporary design with antique furnishings to ensure a charming base to return to each evening.

Look forward to relaxing into your evening curled up on the sofa which rests in front of an exposed brick wall and a roaring woodburning stove filling the room with warmth.

Beyond here is the well-equipped kitchen, which comes with all the essentials to whip up home-cooked meals for you and your partner to enjoy at the dining table over a deserved glass of wine.

The charming interior continues onto the first floor, where you can look forward to retiring to the king-size double bedroom and preparing for your day within the spacious dressing room with views across the historic town.

The interior is completed by a well-presented shower room, complete with a quirky mirror design and a walk-in shower.

To the outside, you will find a quaint courtyard where you can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining and a laundry room for your convenience.

If you can tear yourself away from this wonderful base, a short stroll will bring you to a selection of pubs and restaurants to choose from, as well as a choice of shops for picking up the essentials.

Brush up on the local history by visiting the remains of the 12th century priory, 16th century Guildhall, the Norman church and the Old Gaol House.

For those feeling active, there is the nearby Wenlock Edge offering a series of woodland walks, a magnitude of cycle routes, a rustic bird hide and fossil hunts to enjoy.
