“Nice cottage ...”
Nice cottage great location, nice village, beautiful scenery spacious if a little dated , bathrooms modern and great showers great pub 3 minutes walk away
“This was our second visit to The Willows, it is a nice place, could perhaps do with just a little improvement, but was cheap and cheerful and as described.”
Some of the comments in the visiters book are laughable! This property is not advertised as being luxury and you get what you pay for. So my advise is read the description more carefully. The sheets and towels are clean and it's full of vintage charm, it's a grade 2* listed property with all the charm you would expect. We were 4 adults, 2 being 82 years old, and a dog and we had a lovelly time.
Absolutely loved its eccentricities but people should not choose to stay here if they demand luxury and lack the imagination to be beguiled by its charms. Host exremely helpful, garden lovely and surroundings superb for walking and cycling. We absolutely loved it and would definitely come again.
“The downstairs furniture although in keeping with the age of the cottage was extremely uncomfortable especially for someone in there 70s, green sofas and chairs were so deep you couldn't sit comfortably in them at all!”
The rest of the cottage was very charming and cosy, with lovely bathroom and shower room! The area was excellent for being able to to visit many places and the village was lovely. A dishwasher would have been an asset especially as we were on holiday.
“I think if you were advertising it as dog friendly, small dogs should be allowed upstairs as long as not on bed.”
You should make it clear.
“quaint country cottage”
Stayed as a family with elderly parents and a well behaved dog. The place was very reasonably priced and some of the décor reflected the price. That saying, we had a great time, the place was comfortable and warm and cosy. The kitchen was quite well equipped , although they could do with a few baking sheets for the oven, The stairs were quite difficult for my old mum, who's not as agile as she used to be. The stair carpet is threadbare - it reminded me very much of a gite. Please be aware that dogs are only allowed downstairs. The bathrooms had good showers. The bedrooms are big with lovely views. The area is great for walks. Ludlow and Knighton are near- Knighton had a chipshop and takeaways. We visited the Sitwell Arms- dogs are allowed. We had the tasty carvery on the Sunday.(we booked after visiting on the Friday and advised it gets booked up ) The 2 pubs and the tiny village shop are all a very short walk away. There are lots of games and books available- the tv hasn't all the freeview channels but it worked fine. The docking station worked fine too- didn't try the upstairs tvs .All in all we had a lovely time.
“Cottage itself was lovely.”
What we expected. But little things really let it down. Heating control from next door and not on much. Crockery very cheap and cracked. Broken furniture. Old cobwebs everywhere. Now i dont mind odds individually but the impression was that they had fallen out of love with the place. It would not take much to make it an idyllic place. Start with some decent crockery...
“This was a warm, comfortable cottage with lots of period features.”
We particularly liked the open plan kitchen/diner/seating area. The owners were helpful and friendly and the surrounding area had lots to offer.
“Lovely stay in the Willows Cottage great locatuon and value for money would definitely visit again.”
“We have a wonderful time and have decided to come back next year.”
“The surrounding area is stunning, the village is beautiful and the property is lovely, it was good value for money.”
“This is a charming quirky cottage which could well be described as shabby chic!”
The main room, which is an old shop, is bright and cheerful, but the lounge is very dark, but would probably be very cosy in winter. The bedrooms are charming and the bed linen lovely
“The cottage was very quirky and we liked that.”
However we did feel that there was a lack of storage space for food and no freezer or freezer compartment. However we had a great weekend with the family and would return.
“Lovely cottage in lovely quiet location.”
Was cold during stay at end of August and not able to put central heating on so elderly travellers were very cold. Ample parking close to property. Lovely local walk by stream.
“A characterful and ancient village building”
A spacious, comfortable, and well equipped house, in a very nice, well-connected village. The villagers whom we met were welcoming and interested in our presence. The house has some drawbacks which reflect its varied history. It was obviously a village shop and the kitchen\dining room had the serving counter and shelves to show that former use. But it felt open to the public, with passers by seeing us at breskfast - never a pretty sight. And the sitting room, by contrast, was dark and cramped. All was forgiven in the face of our host's helpfulness and friendliness, and the beauty of rhe surrounding countryside.
“Quirky Cottage Full of Character”
Really nice comfortable property, used to be the village store in the 1920's, friendly owners have left the original fittings in the kitchen/diner, great entertaining room, bedrooms are huge and bathrooms great, powerful showers (a must), lovely garden, village location great for all local attractions, if you love nature and outdoor pursuits you need to come here, Shropshire is a very underrated county. Ludlow is a must to visit for all foodies.
