    Spacious for 2 people, well equipped with very comfortable beds. Heating was good for those cooler moments. The safe, enclosed garden was much appreciated by the 2 dogs. I would certainly book again if visiting that part of the country.

    Meg and John are exceptional hosts and nothing seems too much trouble. Meg surprised my girlfriend with some flowers and chocolates for her birthday which she was truly bowled over with. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone and can't wait to visit here again. It's a lovely cottage in a very tranquil setting and is the perfect place to unwind away from the everyday humdrum

  • "Very comfy and peaceful."

    The slightly lower score for facilities only reflects that the wi-fi wasn't working properly, which the owners were aware of and trying to sort out. It wasn't really more than a minor nuisance, though, and we had a lovely week there.

  • "Perfect place to chill out!"

    So quiet and relaxing with views over the countryside. Dog secure garden and walks from the door. We had excellent weather and the wood at the back of the bungalow was ideal to walk our dog on a hot day. Big thank you to the owners Meg and John for making us feel so welcome.

  • "My wife and I have stayed in many Cottages all over England, Scotland , Wales and Ireland, all things considered we both agree that this was the best yet, cannot not think of one negative thing to say, a huge thank you to John and Meg, you really have thought of everything."

    The views over the Shropshire hills from the house stretch for what must be 10 - 15 miles, marvellous enclosed garden for our Jack Russell to enjoy and we counted 20 different species of birds visiting the Feeder and bird table. As well as numerous pretty towns and villages in the area to walk round, there is a wood at the back of the house to explore. If like us your perfect break is peace and quiet in a beautiful fully equipped cottage then look no further than the glorious Burrows end.

    The Lane to Burrows End is a bit horrendous - potholes, etc but once there it is just so isolated and in beautiful countryside. Good views. If you have a dog there is a wood at the back of the cottage for very convenient doggie walks. Proprietors were very friendly and even did some shopping for us. Would definitely go there again..

    This cottage was everything it said it was. Very comfortable, garden was a boom being totally enclosed ideal for my inquisative beagle. I wish they were all as safe Sykes would be advised to ensure enclosed means enclosed having been disappointed so many other times! The only thing I would say is the wood left didn't last the whole evening on the last night when we lit the burner it was too cold wet and dark to go and ask fir more. The heating system was more than efficient. Owners helpful whilst remote

About the location

FARLOW

Cleobury Mortimer 4.7 miles; Ludlow 11 miles; Kidderminster 15.5 miles.

The scattered village of Farlow lies amongst beautiful countryside in southern Shropshire, offering many walks and cycle routes in all directions. Just a short drive away, beneath the shadow of the mystical Clee Hills, the pretty town of Cleobury Mortimer provides a refreshing selection of shops, pubs and restaurants in an array of Georgian and Tudor architecture, along with a striking parish church with an unusual, twisted spire. The area around the Clee Hills provides excellent walking, cycling and golf, plus fishing can be enjoyed at one of the many pools in the area or on a quiet spot along the River Severn. The attractive market town of Bewdley, once described as "the most perfect Georgian town in Worcestershire", has much to delight visitors with a good selection of pubs and cafes along the riverside, and many tiny shops, antique and craft galleries all surrounded by rolling hills, wooded valleys and meandering rivers offering many opportunities to discover a rich diversity of wildlife. Bridgnorth, with its winding streets and infamous castle ruins, is within easy reach, presenting an ideal opportunity for a trip on the Severn Valley Railway, whilst the medieval town of Ludlow, with its superb 13th Century castle, fascinating antique shops and choice of Michelin-starred restaurants is well worth a visit. Plenty to see and do, for all the family.
