  • "We had a lovely stay, the accommodation was spotless and had everything we needed."

    Large garden to enjoy and well maintained. Our doggy enjoyed his stay too. Mobile reception for hubby’s virgin mobile wasn’t great but my O2 reception was good . Would stay again

  • "We had a fabulous cycling holiday."

    The Stables are delightful, very warm with generous heating, and piping hot water. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable beds, and a lovely location. It’s a perfect centre for exploring on e bikes as there are four great cycle routes you can take straight from the door. Kate was a delightful host and ensured we had everything we needed.

  • "Fantastic accommodation, beautiful location with some wonderful walks nearby, a lovely couple of towns and a fair few things to keep one occupied."

    I particularly loved going into the Castle Hotel I’m Bishops Castle with real fires and lovely meals and coffee. The owner of the cottage was very helpful. Im staying there again, most definitely. One issue to be mindful of, if you have a back problem just ask about the roof beam in the double bedroom. The hight of the beam was fine for me, I’m 62, but someone with back problems may not get under it to the wardrobe and dressing table. But seriously it’s gem.

  • "Beautiful accommodation!"

    Kate the host was lovely and so are her gorgeous dogs. She was super helpful & was quick to respond. The kitchen was full equipped, bed was unbelievably comfy, the exposed beams added so much character & the bath was pure luxury. We would of stayed longer if we could

  • "We had a lovely stay and the bed was so comfy as I have back issues."

    I soon realised why so comfy when I checked out getting myself the same mattress Just two small things really 1 An oven glove 2 After running hoover around before we left there was an awful dog smell everywhere You may need to look into getting some hoover smellies to pop inside the Hoover to prevent the whole place smelling of wet dogs. Everything else was perfect Thankyou

    We loved the house and garden, and had days out walking on the hills around Bury Ditches and Mitchell's Fold Stone Circle. We will be back!

  • "Kate was a lovely host, the cottage is lovely very clean with a beautiful rustic feel throughout with lovely beams and farm yard tiles."

    Really enjoyed seeing Kate feeding the lambs and being on the farm with the beautiful Shropshire views from all windows. The lampshade on the stairs needs a clean but otherwise it was absolutely spotless! I do agree with previous visitors that a few walking maps and local information would be handy. I will certainly stay again, wonderful location, host and accommodation.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Broughton Stables, the perfectly situated converted barn is beautifully renovated and comfortable."

    It’s full of character (ancient oak beams) with great views from the living-room/kitchen across the garden to the hills. Kate the owner (very friendly and approachable) had catered for everything. All the essentials and more. It was clean, airy, fresh and practical with comfortable beds and a lovely on-suite, great for a soak after long walks with the dog. We felt relaxed and at home straight away, we couldn’t have asked for more. The barn is in a picturesque and tranquil location with a private garden to enjoy the view, kittens, pet sheep and the stunning night sky. We enjoyed some fabulous walks in the Shropshire hills and trails, the surrounding area is beautiful with so much to discover. We certainly recommend and will book to stay again to discover more of this beautiful county. We returned from our stay relaxed and revived. We have stayed in many cottages and consider this one of the best.

  • "Lovely stay, just a few minor things would have made it perfect."

    Flies nest outside the second bedroom when we arrived were a bit off putting as a first impression but they did go when disturbed and didnt come back. Not enough hot water for more than one bath at a time. No tea towels in kitchen area. Just a suggestion that a small welcome card to outline local amenities would have been useful and maybe a dvd player for winter breaks when the weather is bad?

  • "Great location for sightseeing."

    Comfortable and homey place. Sadly no storage space for groceries.

    Hello Denise, thank you for your feedback, we are glad you had a comfortable stay and enjoyed the local area. Being a newly refurbished property we are grateful for the feedback about the storage space for groceries, and have since added a new storage cupboard in the utility room. Kind regards, Kate.
