  • "We throughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back next month, the only problem we had was with the shower it was either cold or very very hot water we were unable to adjust it, we have one at home so know how to use this."

    I do feel it should be checked out before soneone is scolded.

    We have checked the shower and noted that only minor adjustments on the controls are needed to change the temperature so we have amended our house instructions to help guests in future Property Owner

    Again, we found the cottage ideal for the local facilities of Church Stretton and the surrounding areas. The cottage is spotless and we really enjoyed our relaxing time there.

    Clean, comfortable, beautifully furnished, everything worked and garden full of scented flowers. The owners had thought of everything. Nice quiet location with walks from the door and only a few minutes walk from shops and, station. We would stay there again and recommend it.

  • "Bungalow was lovely with super view of Ragleth Hill."

    Having a piano that was in tune was a bonus although we had to buy some music books in a charity shop as we'd forgotten to take any and there were none in the bungalow. Being able to walk up onto the hills from the door was excellent. Shops were close and lots of places to eat. The only down side were several loose paving slabs in the garden which could be a hazard. We had a super week and look forward to booking again.

  • "The property itself was excellent."

    The only drawback was we couldn't use the garden umbrella as it wouldn't stay up. Looked as though there could have been a pin missing from the arm Also the garden is very uneven in places and untidy. With a little thought and planning this garden could be a haven to sit and relax in.

    We enjoyed staying at sunny corner so much we are going to go back next year, it is beautifully decorated , well equipped , clean, and has big bath towels which was lovely, and the views from the kitchen window are amazing, the garden is fully enclosed which is great when you have a dog, only a few minutes walk to the nearest pub serving food , the pubs are dog friendly and some of the cafes are too and its only about 5 minutes walks to shops, there is also lots of walks around church Stretton, there is also a vet in the town centre which was comforting to know, sunny corner is definitely one of our favourite places we have stayed in

    Easy short walk in to Church Stretton which has all the amenities needed as well as some lovely cafes and eateries. Garden completely secure for dogs with good, though quite steep, walks accessible from the house without needing to use the car.

  • "Grand Bungalow, well kept and super comfortable."

    Top shower and kitchen facilities. It has a fully enclosed large multi level garden, ideal for sitting out in the sun and shade admiring the views of Ragleth whilst the dogs chill and mooch. Perfect position for Church Stretton, a picturesque town with 4 good pubs, Wine Bar, Bistro, Thai, Indian and unique shops. All facilities needed are there, including a good COOP. 3 more pubs are within walking distance in the Strettons. Super choice of walks around Longmynd, Rectory Wood, Acton Scott Farm or just in the local parks. Ludlow well worth a visit. Also very people and dog friendly. It all added up to a totally enjoyable 2 week break for us - even the weather largely held up.

  • "Sunny Corner was an amazing property with 3 large bedrooms, a huge living room and excellent shower room and kitchen."

    Gardens were magnificent and full privacy throughout with top of the range garden furniture. All in all one of the best cottages we have stayed in, quiet location but only a few minutes walk from all the shops, pubs and restaurants. Loads of places to visit nearby and train station 5 mins away so don't even need to take the car, Shrewsbury return only £7. If you like walking the countryside then this place is paradise with so many walks to choose from all on the doorstep. We highly recommend this property, you will not be disappointed

  • "I can now quite understand why so many reviews were from repeat customers."

    The bungalow was quite simply lovely, I particularly liked the various pictures and ornaments. It didn't feel like a holiday let, more like someone's home. It was in a very quiet location but within easy walking distance to the shops, which were many and varied. We stay in three holiday lets per year and would not want to return to most of them, there are usually a number of irritations or niggles. Sunny Corner joins a select number that we would be happy to return to. Was it perfect? Not quite. I really think there should be an extractor fan in the bathroom. The paving in the garden is littered with trip hazards with a number of uneven or loose slabs, making it unsuitable for those with poor vision or limited mobility. The lack of top lights in the bedroom windows is a mistake, when you are sleeping in a bungalow you should be able to have more ventilation than just locking the big windows slightly ajar. These are fairly minor niggles compared with the many plus points.

  • "Beautiful bungalow in a great village."

    This is our 4th visit so we knew what we were getting. Perfect for anyone who does not drive as it is close to the train station and is also on a regular bus service between Shrewsbury and Ludlow. Amazing area for walkers with or without dogs. Can't wait to return next year.

    We are a therapeutic women's group who meet annually for a long weekend away. This property is brilliant for our work, as it is private and yet near to the very pleasant town centre, beautiful walks, and cosy house to return to. Everything that we need is provided and we intend to make it our regular "workshop" space. We've just enjoyed a few days of stunning weather - especially in February - with temperatures of nearly 20 degrees in the sunshine. Fabulous!!

    Our second visit as it's such a lovely place to stay. It's in a good position for visiting lots of places like Blist Hill in Ironbridge, Bewdley, Much Wenlock, plus walking in the hills. The bungalow has everything you need for young and old. Only niggle this time was a dripping tap in kitchen that drove us mad. We contacted the owner who replied they were struggling to find a plumber! Plus this time there was no welcome pack like milk in the fridge! Apparently an oversight! Nevertheless we will return again.
