  • "We had an enjoyable and comfortable stay in this lovely cottage."

    It is surrounded by countryside and beautiful views and has several areas outside to sit in and enjoy the peace (if you’re lucky with the weather!). Indoors there are comfortable sofas, a good size tv and a very well equipped kitchen, together with a proper dining table. There is also a downstairs toilet. The wifi signal was strong throughout the house. Upstairs the three bedrooms are bright and airy. The shower in the bathroom wasn’t super powerful but good enough. As other reviewers have noted, the roads around the property are fairly narrow country roads but nothing out of the ordinary, to us it was part of the beauty of being in that location. We would definitely come back to this property if we come to this area again.

    Thank you for your positive feedback. Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Property Owner

  • "Our second visit - the cottage is perfect for us."

    The cottage is extremely comfortable, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. There are fantastic walks from the door in all directions and the area is extremely rural and peaceful.

  • "This is a lovely cottage, among the best we've ever stayed in."

    It is spacious, clean, comfortable and convenient - everything has been thought of. All the facilities worked perfectly. We were there just after Christmas and the cottage was beautifully decorated - it must have taken a great deal of time. The wood burning stove was great and we enjoyed the extensive view from the upstairs windows. There are good walks in two directions from the door (bring wellies if it's wet). Altogether a great place to stay.

    Thank you for your kind comments. Property Owner

    Home from home, furnished and kitted out with quality items, showing great care and respect for the guests. Sue’s attention to detail and thoughtfulness were greatly appreciated, from fresh farm eggs, runner beans to delivering a parasol when the heat came down over Shropshire.

  • "This is a beautiful cottage and we were very happy with all the facilities."

    The problem is it is five miles from the main road down tiny narrow lanes and every time you want to go out you have to negotiate single track overgrown roads with few passing places. I regret it spoiled our holiday and we came home after three days.

  • "The house was very clean and well presented and was fully equipped to make our stay wonderful."

    The house is situated in the middle of nowhere which made it extremely peaceful. Floorboards extremely creaky so everyone knew whenever someone moved around upstairs! The garden furniture was a a little disappointing - everything was filthy, only four comfortable outside chairs and no umbrella. The track entrance needed a mirror as on a blind bend and had to manoeuvre in 2 goes leaving vulnerable to anything travelling fast round bend The arrival directions were not correct (we realised in advance so didn’t follow them)

  • "The cottage was cosy, clean and a lovely stay!"

    The log burner was a bonus due to the cold weather and each bedroom was spacious and clean! I was pleasantly surprised to find a downstairs cloakroom which was an added bonus as on the description it wasn’t clear that there was one. Communication with Sue was amazing, and the message I received in the morning regarding the farmers market was a lovely touch. We had a problem with the Wi-Fi which was resolved within a few hours and I cannot fault anything about the cottage or the property owner. I would definitely return and recommend.

  • "Lovely cottage in a pretty remote spot."

    Nice to be away from any main roads etc. my daughter liked checking out what Rupert the horse was doing next door each morning. Weather was good but, not hot, which is the gamble in April but the large log burner was plenty to keep us nice and toasty in the evenings! With some nice National trust properties within 30 mins drive there was plenty of options for days out as well as having a look round some of the local villages/towns. We particularly liked Ludlow for range of shops and pubs etc.

    Set in a wonderful location handy to get to a number of local tourist sites in the area and beyond. Remember to take supplies with you as you are away from the shops (about 5 miles) but loved the peace and quiet as well as the comfort. Will definitely looked to come again. Just 1 small footnote... missed having a bit of milk in the fridge waiting like we have had at other places as could get the kettle on for a cuppa without getting unpacked first

  • "The bathroom toilet definitely needs attention."

    It does not flush properly and the seat is very wobbly. Also the fan which comes on with the bathroom light, stays on for far too long after the light is switched off. During the night this can disturb others. Would benefit from being an independent fan switch. Also it needs pointing out in the property details that the bedroom with 2 single beds does not have a wardrobe. This did not affect us, but others may be angered. For warned is for armed as they say. Other than that we enjoyed out stay. Lovely setting, good views and very tranquil and quiet. Lots to see in the area with Ludlow, Bridgnorth and the Severn Valley Railway.

The property

Cleobury Mortimer 5 miles.

Set in a tranquil position within the rural village of Oreton, Camden Cottage is a striking stone dwelling perfect for a family or group getaway to the magnificent Shropshire countryside.

Return from an action-packed day out to this warm and restful abode, kicking off your mud-splattered boots as you retreat to the homely sitting room and watch as flames flicker within the woodburning stove.

Admire the characterful beams and beautiful stone floor as you take a seat in the dining room, indulge in a chilled bottle of bubbly whilst the chef of the group whips up a delicious home-cooked meal in the traditional farmhouse kitchen.

Freshen up in the handy cloakroom or climb the grand oak staircase up to the first floor to unwind with a soak in the spacious family bathroom.

Right across the way three well-appointed bedrooms await you; a king-size, a double and a twin, providing ample sleeping space for six.

Make the most of warmer weather with days spent relaxing in the garden, basking in the sunshine, and enjoying a new and exciting novel whilst the children play happily on the lawn.

Grab your hiking boots and head for the hills with a day spent walking through the luscious open fields of Shropshire, and discover Flounders' Folly, Stokesay Castle and The Mogg Hill Fort.

Step back in time at the Acton Scott Historic Working Farm, a great day out for the whole family, or spend the day in the town of Bridgnorth and uncover the Bridgnorth Cliff Railway Bottom Station and the remains of Bridgnorth Castle and Gardens.

Wander the National Trust owned Dudmaston Estate, or see the cascading waters of Carding Valley Waterfall.

Visit the Museum of The Gorge, Iron Bridge Gorge and Blists Hill Victorian Town, all set in the town of Telford, or spot the imposing 12th and 13th century remains of Buildwas Abbey and Wenlock Priory.

Delight in a scenic journey through the countryside on the Severn Valley Railway and see majestic wildlife at the West Midland Safari Park.

Indulge in a picnic at Trimpley Reservoir, or venture deep into the beautiful woodlands of Wyre Forest National Nature Reserve on an awe-inspiring walk.

With all this and so much more to look forward to, be sure to book a stay at Camden Cottage.
