It was a lovely house but could have been a bit cleaner and the main bed had two matresses on and they slipped about as you tried to sleep. The owner was very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The grounds and fishing pools were tremendous and in a lovely area with lots for kids and adults to do. Reviewed by Margaret3.1★Feb 2023 "It says 5 bedrooms and only 4." Dirty inside windows problem viz Covid. Fridge too small for 10 people. Freezer needed defrosting. Not enough wine glasses only 5. Some non stick cooking equipment needs replacing. Towels not big enough and none for hot tub. Some maintenance needed in kitchen re piece of wood held up by bar stool and loose kick boards. Man on site was very helpful. Wi fi not strong enough to be useful in all parts of property. Enjoyable break but property not up to usual standards( a bit tired) Reviewed by Elaine2.5★Apr 2022 "Brilliant lovely place bigger that what we fort slept 11 Comfy" Reviewed by Alicia5.0★Feb 2022 "Beautiful house everything we needed The owner was so helpful recommended some great restaurants , would go back too." Only comment I would say is too get another fridge as we struggled with 7 adults but other than this rate it five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviewed by Sophie5.0★Sep 2021 "Lovely property really nice and comfortable." Lacked some kitchen equipment and could definitely do with another shower room.. but all in all really pleased fantastic holiday Reviewed by Chris4.1★Jul 2021 "The host Tom was great and lived just next door; very welcoming and responsive throughout the stay." It was a lovely homely cottage with an amazing view, and great location for activities around Kidderminister, especially if you are a hiker or train enthusaist. The cottage just needs a little TLC, and maybe a welcome pack to make it a little more comfy and user friendly. Whilst the kitchen had most of what we needed, a few extra bits and a larger fridge freezer would make a longer stay easier. The four of us struggled on occasion with just the one shower and some of the other facilities, so proably somthing to bear in mind if you are a bigger group. Would make sure you bring some flip flops to get to the hot tub as small stones underfoot, could do with some steping stones. Wifi and Sky worked well, hot tub was kept filled up and clean throughout our stay, could just do with back cusions to make it a little more comfortable. Top tips: remember to bring toilet roll and cleaning products! And the bellmans pub is just a short walk up the road was great for dinner! Reviewed by Dan4.7★Jun 2021 "Tom was so helpful and kind and very friendly, the cottage was beautiful and the surroundings just gorgeous, property could do with some TLC." bedroom doors blew open in night during storm in family room due to the wood being broken where latches should secure them shut big shock to us and the kids as we were in family room, some of the cutlery and bowls were dirty, clothes in drier toiletries in the shower, some “adult” accessories in the bedroom draws thankfully found by an adult not the kids Reviewed by Julie4.4★Dec 2020 "When booking we were provided with different sleeping arrangements compared to when we arrived, other than that I can't fault the house."

The scattered hamlet of Shatterford lies in unspoilt Worcestershire countryside, on the edge of the Wyre Forest, close to the towns of Bewdley and Stourbridge and four miles north of Kidderminster. One of the largest ancient woodlands in the country, the Wyre Forest is a designated SSSI and National Nature Reserve offering visitors lovely walks and cycle trails and is home to many rare species of wildlife, flora and fauna. The pretty town of Bewdley, once described as the most perfect Georgian town in Worcestershire lies on the banks of the River Severn and offers a good choice of pubs, restaurants, cafes, antique and craft galleries, as well as the Severn Valley Railway. Overlooking the nearby village of Kinver is the impressive Kinver Edge, a sandstone ridge covering 300 acres and offering long distant views of the surrounding area, along with Iron Age hill forts and cave-houses, which were occupied until the mid-1900s, and why not sample the wines at the local vineyard at Astley.
