  • "Lovely, clean and spacious cottage in a stunning setting."

    The owner was helpful and very kindly allows guests to access their beautiful garden and fields too. We enjoyed walks in Mortimer forest, Ludlow and it's castle and nearby National Trust Berrington hall. There is so much to do in the area with some brilliant walking and cycling trails. Perfect family holiday, my boys (7&10) thoroughly enjoyed it and wanted to rebook straight away. Highly recommend this property!

    Thank you for your kind words. We love to share the garden and lake with guests it’s all part of the relaxing experience. Hope to see you all again. Jayne Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful week at the Coach House, it’s a lovely, homely cottage with all you could need."

    We had some fantastic walks at Croft Castle and Mortimer Castle even given the March mud and rain. A day at the Small Breeds park is thoroughly recommended and only 30 minutes away. We plan to return in better weather when the gardens around the cottage will be a delight and to tackle some more trails in Mortimer Forest

    The kitchen is a good size and is very well equipped. The living room is light spacious and airy (plenty of room for 4 adults) and the bedrooms are bright and thoughtfully furnished with comfy beds for a good nights sleep. The whole cottage has been planned with lots of care, love and attention to detail. It is in an area of natural beauty with fabulous views and lots of local walks.

  • "This is a perfect location for a winter break - well, a break at any time of year actually."

    The owner is so friendly and helpful, but also discrete. The grounds and gardens are lovely with the snowdrops just coming through.The ancient Mortimer Forest is accessible over the road and there are all sorts of walks to take: climbing up high for views, winding along stream valleys, short, long, on forest vehicle tracks or on grass walking tracks. So there is always somewhere to go even when it is very wet. Plenty of deer and birds of prey, but mostly silence! The winter light is ever changing and beautiful. Ludlow is a spectacular, historic town to visit with ancient pubs and wonderful country fare. It is the best Sykes cottage we have stayed in so far with extensive views and all the home comforts you could wish for.

    Our intention when booking was to use the house as a base for walking in the area and it certainly met our expectations with numerous local walks from the door and the magnificent Shropshire hills a short drive away. A must for any walker is a ramble up Brown Clee ( the highest point in Shropshire) and Tittestone Clee both of which have fantastic three hundred and sixty degree views across various counties. Richards Castle and Ludlow are also within easy walking distance. Their are a number of pubs/restaurants within a short drive away which we made full use of during our stay.
