  • "Outstanding Cottage !"

    Truly the best cottage we have stayed in, Rustic and super cosy with everything you could wish to have for a short or long break. Spotlessly clean and maintained to a high standard, this cottage is in a beautiful location which is so quiet and peaceful, yet, you wouldn’t believe it is close to the A5 which is great for travelling on days out, easy reach of Shrewsbury and all its shops and attractions, Telford, Ludlow and Oswestry a little further, but worth the effort. The owners Sue & Steve are on site and are great, friendly and helpful and will go the extra mile to make their guests stay a great experience, we will definitely be back.

    Thank you so much for the great feedback You are most welcome anytime looking forward to seeing you again take care Sue and Steve Property Owner

    A great deal of thought has been put into the cottage to make you feel welcome and it has all the extras you need. The surrounding gardens and flowers are outstanding!

    Sue was amazing, absolutely lovely and told me all I needed to know about local dog walks. The cottage was totally gorgeous, had EVERYTHING I needed in the kitchen and was absolutely immaculate. I was so sad to leave but I will be back! Jackson (grumpy schnauzer) also adored it and he is now sulking!!

  • "We enjoyed this isolated cottage set in the middle of a large cottage garden."

    The owner was particularly careful about preparation of the cottage in view of the current pandemic. We enjoyed talking to the owners about the garden, the cats and how they had worked on the house and garden over the years. Although isolated, it is only about 800 yards from the A5 which makes it easy to reach.

  • "Sue and Steve were amazing hosts, assisting us with taking in our shopping when we arrived late due to traffic!"

    Very kind and friendly, also sharing little local gems to visit which our dog loved! The cottage was beautiful, quaint and spotless, with a complete cleaning checklist which as been reassuring during this time. Very well presented with decor and a beautiful garden, where we ate most of the time, where we also spotted many butterflies and birds! The perfect location to explore Shropshire and over the border in North Wales.

    The cottage was lovely set in its own small gated garden. Everything we needed was provided by the owners, the cottage was well kept and very clean. The beds were very comfortable. We explored the area of Shropshire and there are many places to visit, such as, Chirk Castle, Llangollen, Attingham Park, Shrewsbury town which we found very interesting. We also climbed Rodney's Point with spectacular views from the top. We would definitely recommend this area and the cottage is a great base to explore from. This is a lovely part of England and we were very sad to leave.
