I love this place!” A charming and beautiful cottage (converted from part of the main building) set in glorious country side. It's quiet, with sheep for neighbours! Dawn and Gary made the perfect hosts, always there to help and suggest places to eat and visit; nothing was too much trouble! The cottage is commendably converted, which can't have been easy as I understand it's a listed building. The decor is simple but very elegant, with perfect finishing touches; soft plump fluffy towels and lovely soaps. Everything ... A charming and beautiful cottage (converted from part of the main building) set in glorious country side. It's quiet, with sheep for neighbours! Dawn and Gary made the perfect hosts, always there to help and suggest places to eat and visit; nothing was too much trouble! The cottage is commendably converted, which can't have been easy as I understand it's a listed building. The decor is simple but very elegant, with perfect finishing touches; soft plump fluffy towels and lovely soaps. Everything you need is there, and more! The kitchen is brilliantly equipped, you don't even need to bring tea towels! Dawn really has thought of everything to make your stay the perfect break a way from it all. Prepare to be chilled! We took our bikes and did a few lovely cycles rides along the canel and also through the Shropshire hills. That was one of the attractions of the cottage, the location was perfect for walking, cycling and even the sea isn't far away. There is always something to do, near by. The village of Montgomery is very close, with its stunning restaurant, The Checkers; a must for foodies! There's fish and chips, a small Spar store and a deli, open in the day time only. There's plenty of pubs and other eating places near by; Gary and Dawn will always point you in the right direction! Don't think about this cottage, BOOK it! You love it, and want to go back. I loved it so much, my parents have booked in too! When I need a safe haven to 'read' my Uni books, I'll be booking in, lighting the wood burning fire and snuggling up on the sofa! Perfect! Thank you again Dawn and Gary, and see you soon! (And I haven't even mentioned the bath!!)
