  • "This property is lovely, it is spacious, furnished to a high quality, with a well-equipped kitchen and a great shower."

    Private parking is a plus, and there was a lovely welcome pack awaiting us on arrival. The Queens Head pub at the end of the road is superb, fantastic food, wines and ale. Location is excellent for canal walks, and the Ironworks Sculpture Park is a mile away. Easy access to North Wales too. We would highly recommend this place.

    The apartment is top quality and has everything you could wish for. You do need a car to get around, but 2 pubs are within walking distance. A big thank you to the owners :-)

  • "We had a fantastic break at the Annexe, staying for 5 nights."

    The welcome pack was a lovely touch. The apartment had everything we needed and was very clean. The surrounding area had plenty of places to visit, despite us being unable to venture into Wales due to lockdown. We have no hesitation in recommending the Wynnstead Annexe.

    We were very comfortable here, and the generous basket of goodies provided by the owner was especially welcome. The nearby pub was also very good, and we would not hesitate to stay in this cottage again.

  • "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.

  • "The property is up some quite steep steps, which are open slats."

    .. maybe not suitable for elderly guests, also some large gates to open and close to get on and off the drive, which again, may not suit elderly visitors. This was the only issue... the flat was very clean and comfortable, and convenient for Oswestry, Shrewsbury and Whittington.
