    Although a little remote, which added to a very pleasant relaxing stay, there were many places of interest which were in easy reach. The owners were most welcoming and friendly and we would highly recommend this property.

    Extremely comfortable beds & fluffy towels. Mary was a charming host and her ginger cake is truly scrumptious! We would certainly return.

  • "Lovely cottage in a great spot for exploring the local villages of Pembridge and Eardisland."

    Very well equipped, clean, comfortable accommodation and a friendly welcome from our hosts. The bedroom and bathroom are both huge. Ludlow is an easy drive away and it provides a good range of shops. The Cider Barn near Pembridge offers fabulous food and cider, of course! Had a great stay with friends who stayed in the adjoining cottage.

  • "Very nice and unusually spacious holiday cottage, immaculately kept, in a peaceful area."

    Owners very helpful and welcoming, and we appreciate the extra effort they have to go to in making self-catering accommodation available at the current time. Directions on Sykes web site are not adequate to find cottage (and, bizarrely, start from Birmingham without actually saying that is where they start from!) - it needed a conversation with the owners to locate it (perhaps this is intended).

  • "This is definitely worth a visit."

    Well equipped, modern cottage. Exceptionally clean and well thought-out... from cake and tea on arrival (from our very kind hosts) to the availability of lunch boxes. Everything has a place and is readily available in this lovely cottage. As I said, it’s worth a stay!

  • "The cottage and location for touring the area was excellent."

    The hosts Ann and Tony were friendly and helpful. The only downside for us personally was the noise of industrial traffic on the road when you are sat outside, or have the windows or doors open, which we had to do as it was exceptionally hot. No problem when inside with the doors shut.

  • "This was a property in which much attention to detail has been invested to make sure that the customer has everything they could want."

    Modern, spotlessly clean, well insulated and with excellent fast wifi connection, the Old Power House is perfectly located for exploring the borderlands of England & Wales. I would highly recommend this accommodation and hope that I will be able to return soon to continue exploring this wonderful county.

  • "The week which we spent at the Old Power House Cottage was not actually a holiday, but rather a week spent house hunting in the area."

    The cottage was a perfect base from which to do this and as such it satisfied our needs 100%. For anybody intending to spend a holiday in the area, we would recommend the cottage. It is clean, comfortable, and very well appointed. The owners were friendly without being intrusive, the location is very pleasant, and the village of Shobdon is a good centre for exploring the delights of the area (we were actually looking at properties to buy in the village as well as further afield), and also has a good village shop (quite a rarity these days) and a nice pub, the Bateman Arms. All in all a very good week.
