  • "The Annexe is a great place for two!"

    It was so comfortable and had the best equipped kitchen in any holiday cottage we've stayed in - even had a set of kitchen scales! Being tall we were very conscious of the sloping ceilings but they didn't cause us any problems. Great location, great pub just a 5 minute walk away - although it's closed Monday and Tuesday. Hoping to go again and would thoroughly recommend.

    So pleased to hear you both enjoyed your stay at the Annexe . Thanks Kath and Allan Property Owner

  • "A very well presented property."

    Very clean, very comfortable, very well equipped and located in an interesting and picturesque part of the country. Not long after our arrival the owners introduced themselves to us and offered to answer any questions that we had regarding both the accommodation and the general area. As it happens, they had provided just about all of the information we were likely to need within the property. They recommended us to the local village pub "The Queens Head'. We discovered that to be a good choice. Indeed we ate there three evenings and found it to be both friendly and good value for money. We have no hesitation in recommending The Wynnstead Annexe as being an excellent place to stay for a UK break. Clive & Marilyn.

    Nice to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Wynnstead Annexe and enjoyed the fabulous food they serve at the Queen’s Head . Thanks Kath and Allan Property Owner

  • "Two excellent pubs within walking distance one of which a much underated Punch bowl inn fantastic value."

    We also walked to the ironworks-amazing place. The property was excellent the only fault may have been Sykes oversight in not informing guests about the building site next door. In fact once the final house progresses beyond its foundations the holiday property will be overlooked both in kitchen and bathroom. Privacy at the annexe will disappear.

    We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. The final house will not have 1st storey windows overlooking the annexe but will have roof lights. The final house is also set forward of the annexe. Property Owner

  • "Terrific holiday let we have been before and hopefully will go again."

    The cottage is ideally placed for great walking and visiting the local area Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Oswestry and Wales. A great welcome pack was provided by the owners and even a couple of Easter eggs. The cottage has all the amenities that you would need and everything is there for you to have a great holiday. The Queens Head is very good for a meal/drink and the bus to Shrewsbury/Oswestry runs every 30 minutes. If you like walking Oswalds Trail in Oswestry or walking along the canal to LLanymynech and back are both around 14/15 miles in distance.

    I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay . Thank you for the lovely comments . Kath and Allan Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely week long stay at the Wynnstead Annexe."

    The accommodation was spotless, comfortable and was well equipped with everything we needed for a home from home holiday. The hosts were helpful but left us to enjoy our stay (making sure we knew they were on hand for any queries/issues) and we thought the location was perfect for exploring a part of the country we hadn’t visited before. There is a pub within walking distance as well as a nice walk along the canal path. There are several supermarkets in Oswestry which is just a short drive away. During our stay we visited various places - For walking I would highly recommend Oswald’s Trail, Stiperstones and Llanymynech Rocks (park near the pub DO NOT FOLLOW THE SAT NAV!) and Shrewsbury was a lovely town to visit. We would highly recommend the Wynnstead Annexe if you want a comfortable base to enjoy your holiday in Shropshire.
