  • "Fantastic accomodation."

    Great facilities. A lovely relaxed week.

  • "A great week in a comfortable cozy cottage with character."

    The only drawback is the iffy mobile signal and wifi. This seems pretty general in Shropshire and will be an advantage to some who want to get away from the phone. For us, the local pub's fast wifi was one answer to catch up if necessary; another is to take with you a mobile data gadget to connect to the internet; and the best answer is to relax and enjoy the surroundings. We shall be going again. Thank you - we had a lovely time.

  • "We had a lovely week at this property."

    It is a fabulous holiday let, very clean and well equipped with a lovely outside seating area and the balcony was great for a morning cuppa in the sunshine. The flexibility of having single beds suited us as a group of four friends. Really friendly owners and the welcoming milk and wine were much appreciated as were the flowers on the kitchen table. The only major criticism is the Wi-Fi. In the cottage instructions it says the signal is weak, that is an understatement, we were unable to connect to it, so it was no use to us at all. There was also limited phone signal. If you want to get away from it all then it is an ideal place, possibly it should not be advertised as having Wi-Fi when in reality it doesn’t. Flies were also an issue, we had lovely weather so had doors and windows open, we were constantly swatting flies in the kitchen (with my own fly swat) so possibly some fly spray or a swatter could be provided. Other than that have no hesitation in recommending this property.

    Mrs Williams, the owner, was very friendly and chatty and was there to welcome us on arrival. Directions were excellent and it was centrally situated to lots of fantastic locations. We would definitely book this property again.

  • "We stayed and The Stables and it’s neighbouring property from 16th July 2021."

    Staying here made our first holiday and reunion with our parents after 12 long months all the more wonderful! The cleanliness, having separate properties for both families and all having en-suite’s made us feel so at ease to be able to relax while still under some covid restrictions. The standard of furnishings at the properties were exceptional and it had more equipment than you could possibly need! On arrival we found a thoughtful gift in the fridge along with a few food essentials. A lovely welcome! The outdoor patios and balcony with seating and BBQ’s were fantastic to be able to enjoy what was the hottest week of the year! The surrounding views and fields were beautiful and gave the feel of a perfect escape. The owners were so friendly and were incredibly helpful, while not intruding, making them the perfect hosts. There is plenty to do for all ages in the surrounding areas and we would definitely visit and stay again to explore more!

  • "An extremely comfortable stay in an excellently appointed cottage."

    The welcome pack and fresh flowers were much appreciated and a lovely touch. It was really good that both bedrooms were of an equally high standard with plenty of storage. The whole property was furnished to a very high level and our stay certainly felt like a "home from home". It was great to have the option of either sitting in the private garden or in the green open space next to the cottage. We enjoyed visiting Pistyll Rhaeadr, a stunning waterfall in the Berwyn Mountains, a number of National Trust properties and were fortunate to also be able to do some really stunning walks including visiting Llanymynech Rocks Nature Reserve and also the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. Excellent all round!

    The owners have paid close attention to detail, they are very friendly and made us feel really welcome. The views are very nice, it’s peaceful and the location is great for the Berwyns, the coast and both Shrewsbury and Oswestry. We felt very much at home and enjoyed a relaxing week and will stay again. We would give it 10 out of 10!

  • "A nice cottage in Shropshire, within easy reach of Oswestry and the surrounding area."

    Lots to see and do and the weather has been good too. Llangollen is a nice town, the horse drawn canal boat trip is lovely. Acton Scott Victorian Farm was so tranquil and it was a big surprise to see nine 1 day old piggies, so cute. The close by towns of Shrewsbury, Welshpool and Oswestry, are all full of character and all worth a visit.

  • "Booked for a fortnight and both my husband and I have enjoyed our stay at The Stables property."

    Such a friendly welcome from the owners Matt & Cheryl, Who also live on the site. They let you know they are available should you need anything. But are not intrusive in any way. It was actually comforting to know the owners were close by should any issues arise, happy to say there were no issues. Barns have been beautifully converted with the original beams and character retained. Welcome pack with all the nessesities to get you started was lovely to find. Even a vase of fresh flowers. Comfortable super king sized beds with lovely quality cotton bedding and fluffy towels. The kitchen is very well stocked with all the pans and glasses you would need. Even managed to cooked a roast diner with all the trimmings and didn't run out of pots/oven trays. Really pleasant kitchen to cook and eat in. There is a balcony on the side of the house which i have sat on nearly everyday with a coffee in the morning or there is a table/chairs out in the garden. Living room has a selection of games, dvds & books too. Very warm & cosy of a night time. Very peaceful location with lots of fascinating places to explore and only all only a short drive away too. Cows and sheep can been seen from the property on the neighbouring farms. Took some fantastic pictures of surrounding area and managed to get some amazing sunset shots too. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend 'The Stables' or if you are after an extra bedroom the owners 2nd barn next door called 'The Hayloft' is a 3 bed which is slightly larger would be a fantastic choice too. Thanks Matt & Cheryl for a wonderful holiday.
