    Comfortable and well equipped. Friendly owners, but in no way intrusive. We enjoyed the views, the birds feeding just outside the window, the fruit from the apple trees, and the warmth and cosiness at night.

  • "This was our second stay at Bryn Caer and as last year, we thoroughly enjoyed it and really didn't want to leave!"

    The house is extremely comfortable, spacious and well maintained and the views are stunning from all aspects of the house, with the large living room window offering a panoramic view of the lovely surrounding countryside. The house is easily accessible to Shrewsbury Town and lovely villages nearby and provides a relaxing retreat at the end of busy days spent sightseeing. We also love the house as it is ideal for intergenerational families: my elderly father really enjoyed having the second living room to relax in and our children spent most of their time playing in the beautiful gardens that wrap around the whole house Thank you so much to the owner Anne for making the house such an inviting place to stay and for the welcome pack. We would love to return!

  • "Great cottage, with everything you need in a holiday home."

    Amazing views. So pleased to see plenty of comfortable seating in both the family and living room, each room could easily sit 6 guests. Would recommend for multi generation stay as having the 2 living spaces and 2 TVs, you dont all have to be together all of the time. Great village shop and cafe few minutes walk. Loads to do without driving miles, inc Montgomery, Powis Castle, Shrewsbury, Welshpool steam train.

  • "What a lovely bungalow, beautiful views from every window especially the picture window in the family room."

    So lovely to watch the world go by, whatever the weather. The bungalow has everything you need and is really comfortable. The log burner makes it extra cosy in the evening. The bungalow is well situated for travelling to Ludlow, Shrewsbury etc although Montgomery is worth a visit and is just down the road. It is a great place for kicking of your shoes and relaxing. The walks look great but the weather was awful for most of our week. Shame the pub is not open as that would have been fantastic. Thank you so much for the welcome pack which was very generous.

  • "Bryn Caer enjoys the rare distinction of exceeding my expectations."

    This spacious, quiet, and comfortable bungalow was a joy. The main carpeting was luxurious was walking on the underfloor heated extension carpet was Heavenly, particularly in November. The property was set far enough outside Chirbury to be private but not so far that I felt isolated and desolate. Resting on the external rocker as the sun set was pure joy. The welcome pack, and especially the cookies, were a bonus. I am more than happy to recommend Bryn Caer.

    We had a fun time catching up with my college friends and did quite a lot of walking. Visited Montgomery on foot and had a nice lunch at the dragon hotel. Drove to Bishops Castle and did a walk from there. Enjoyed eating at the Three tuns brewery there too. The cottage is well stocked and welcoming, a lovely place to stay. The snug sitting room was very welcome and we liked the wood burner on cold evenings. Might return when the pub reopens!

    Great views all around the property on an elevated position. Quiet and peaceful location just right for a relaxing break.lovely garden for sitting out. This is the most well equipped cottage we have ever stayed in. We wanted for nothing. The big surprise on arrival was the very welcome hamper with lots of quality foodstuffs. Thank you very much Anne we were blown away by your generosity. Spent every evening in the very comfortable small lounge. Great location for exploring Shropshire with quiet roads from the door in every direction.

    The property was very well equipped and the views were terrific (the spectacular picture window was a highlight of our stay!). We didn't meet the owner, but she had left a welcoming note and we felt that she would have been quick to respond to any problem - not that there were any. We'd have been very happy to stay longer - perhaps we'll be able to next time.

    A lovely property, light and airy. Plenty of space and the second sitting room was perfect for cosy evening’s.

    It had everything needed for a comfortable stay. A very generous goody basket was much appreciated. If visiting the area again, I would definitely book another stay at the cottage. Lots of nice towns and villages to explore nearby. One thing I would mention is to speak to the host about the thermostat timings if the weather is cold. We were able to keep over-riding it but it may be a bit of a hassle for some guests.

    Bryn Caer was a brilliant location for a cross-generation break: 18 months to 30s to 60s. For the youngest the terrific panoramic window (and that little chair) overlooking the constant flow of tractors and harvest trailers was a huge feature! The lights at night as those harvesting made the best of the weather on the hill were unforgettable. It was a lovely, really comfortable home, and the lady who took care of the cleaning was an absolute delight. The 'goodies' basket on arrival was just wonderful - thank you! The shop up the road was a great local shopping resource. Absolutely delighted with our stay.

  • "The bungalow is in an elevated position just outside the village of Chirbury."

    There are lovely views over the countryside in all directions. We appreciated the generous bowl of “goodies” on arrival. The huge floor to ceiling panoramic window in the new extension is exceptional and gives an impression that that you are almost "outside" overlooking the village, farmland and grazing sheep. The bungalow was very clean and well equipped. Unusually there are two separate sitting areas with a tv each, which could prove useful for two couples or a family with older children. Slippers are required in most areas of the house to protect the carpeting: some are provided if needed. A word about disabled access. There is a small step and door frame to manage on entry, though there is a grab handle outside. One part of the corridor would be too narrow for a wheelchair, though just wide enough for my husband's inside tri-walker. There is a walk in shower in the ensuite of the master bedroom but it doesn't have any grab handles and could prove slippery. The toilet is low-level. It would be wise discussing any accessibility issues with the helpful owner beforehand. Overall, this is a brilliant property which we can highly recommend.

  • "Anne was an excellent host and has the most incredible accommodation."

    The layout was perfect for our family of 6 and the new extension was very spacious. Being up on the hill, the views from every window were either looking out over the fields or over the village. Everything we needed was there and so much more, as every room was so well equipped to make our stay so enjoyable. Despite Wales shutting its borders for lockdown, we still had plenty to do and some days we were very happy to chill out at our home from home. Really hoping we can stay again and it is definitely high on the list as one of the best places that we have stayed at. Huge thank you from the whole family.
