  • "Had an amazing stay in the lovely cottage, it was very relaxing and in a stunning location with plenty to do in the area from walks right on the doorstep to quad biking and archery, also within walking distance."

    We would definitely recommend this little gem and will be returning. The only issue was no washing machine and lack of clothes rail.

  • "We had a really lovely relaxing break away exploring the local area, there really is some lovely places and walks to visit close by."

    Shrewsbury is a must see. The chapel has everything you need for a home away from home. Bed is very comfy. I enjoyed having a bath with a view overlooking the hills. The garden is such a lovely space to sit out in and enjoy a drink in the evening and watch the sunset. The only thing I would like to point out which I did notice, the coffee machine was full of old used pods from previous holidayers - and their seemed to be quite a lot of cobwebs and dust gathering around the top of the oven space and in the top of lamps. Thank you so much for a lovely stay. :)

    Very comfortable and Ideally centrally located for exploring the Shropshire area and east Wales. Great to meet Ed , the owner, and benefit from the New Wifi Ariel he had just fitted. Fantastic views from the garden , nice to sit out on the patio area in the evening taking it all in ,in perfect tranquility. I would certainly highly recommend hiring this stunning cottage .

    The location is picture perfect with lots of walks right on your doorstep. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay which was over far too soon. We hope to return again in the future.

  • "The cottage was just as advertised."

    Spectacular views. We settled in the minute we walked through the door. The location is really peaceful with some lovely walks close by. My husband, a keen runner, enjoyed some good runs, if a little challenging. It is a place that we could revisit and enjoy the views in different seasons.

  • "Overall the location and accommodation were excellent, however we felt a few little niggles could be resolved to make it even better The heating was not sufficient to keep us warm and we couldn’t increase it as the heating was on a timer and there was no boost option."

    The bath would only fill up to nearly half way because of the lack of hot water. A shower would have been better in our opinion.Regulating the shower head was very difficult.

  • "Ideally placed for a superb peaceful break."

    Accommodation is very clean and comfortable with all we could ever need. Chapel is well placed in the countryside with superb views to the North, although views in other directions somewhat restricted. Lovely place to escape to.

  • "The setting is idyllic."

    Lovely quiet place in the countryside. Everything you could wish for in a cottage. Beautifully converted chapel. Lovely decor and attention to detail.

  • "The picture of the view - good though it is - does not do justice to how spectacular it actually is."

    The immediate surroundings are extremely beautiful and unspoilt with good walks to be had from literally outside the door but also easy access to local towns and attractions. The cottage itself is almost deceptively well designed inside and out - nothing requires unnecessary effort and the simple instructions on how to use the utilities were much appreciated - an often overlooked issue in our experience.
