    “The Old Workshop was exactly what I was expecting from the excellent photos I had seen on the website.”


    The place was perfect for a much needed break. We took our dog Teddy with us and I walked him on the wooded bridleway, which was just up the lane, every morning, while my husband stayed in bed.The four day stay was for him to chill out and destress after working incredibly hard recently and for me to do some walking. After breakfast we went sightseeing, there are so many places to visit in this area, we loved Ludlow and Shrewsbury we visited Ironbridge too. The countryside was gorgeous especially in the autumn colours. The cottage is beautifully decorated and so lovely to stay in. I loved the colour scheme throughout and all the lovely little touches. You have everything you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable. We loved the log burner in the evening and just chilled out with a glass of wine and watched movies. So relaxing after a day sightseeing. We would definitely recommend The Old Workshop we loved our stay in it and the beautiful location. Very peaceful and quiet

The pretty, rural village of Picklescott nestles in the Shropshire Hills adjacent to the Long Mynd, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Picklescott is at the halfway point of a lovely walk along country lanes while the surrounding area abounds in miles of beautiful bridlepaths offering excellent walking and cycling opportunities. The village is home to the award-winning The Bottle and Glass, a pub serving up real ale and home-cooked food.

The medieval towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow, with their ancient castles, excellent shops, restaurants and scenic, riverside walks are well worth a visit, as are the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge with its fascinating museums, the amazing Roman ruins at Wroxeter and Stokesay Castle.
