  • "If you’re looking for peace and quiet this is the place to come!"

    I don’t think we have ever stayed anywhere so quiet. Lovely welcome by Katie and a very useful welcome basket, a nice cosy cottage equipped with all that you need. Loved the little herb garden by the back door, a very nice touch. We loved the surrounding area and countryside and the view from the cottage and garden and the lovely enclosed courtyard to sit out in.

  • "Lovely hamper on arrival, fruit, bread, milk and sweets and lovely welcome from Katie."

    The cottage is a little off the beaten track, but that's what we wanted. We used the wood burner in an evening as it added to the cosy atmosphere. The big window has a great view over the fields towards the hills. Great base for exploring the area, Shrewsbury, Ludlow, ironbridge and Stiperstones. A must visit is the village shop in Stiperstones, a true Aladdin's cave.

  • "The owners went above and beyond in making myself and my two dogs so very welcome."

    Little touches such as having our names on the welcome board meant alot. We stayed during Christmas and it was just a perfect break as it was so comfortable and relaxing and I couldn't have asked for any more. We will definitely be making a return visit.
