  • "We had a delightful stay at this lovely large house tucked into the Shropshire Hills."

    We arrived on the warmest day on record and were bowled over by the house. Large and accommodating our party of seven with ease. The hot tub was used by the kids throughout our stay and the cool 'snug' living room provided much needed cool. The setting of the house is amazing. Tucked away up a single lane road with houses appearing occasionally from each side it really was the very definition of seclusion. Just what we were looking for. The house had WiFi, which pleased the kids, and was spotless in its presentation. We would not hesitate in returning to this home. The owner, Mark, is very thoughtful and considerate in every detail. From sheep strolling into the garden, a wandering chicken, playing cards at the large kitchen table, sunning ourselves in the large garden, to visiting the pub at the end of the lane, we take away happy memories of our time here. What more can you ask for?

    Hot tub a huge bonus along with the local shop and pub at the bottom of the hill. Lovely touch when we arrived a bottle of wine and a some supplies

  • "Everything we needed was provided, plenty of space and we liked the fact there were 2 separate sleeping areas and separate snugs which we needed sometimes with 8 people."

    Really good accommodation, hot tub a bonus too.

  • "Lovely accommodation, beautiful setting - just a little cold downstairs with no ability to turn radiators up and not enough wood for the fire."

    Could have chopped it but couldn't find an axe.

  • "The house is beautiful, in an idyllic setting, with panoramic views."

    The house is very well laid out to cater for all needs The house is well equipped with lots of cooking equipment, crockery, utensils as expected, even logs for fire are provided. Plus items as an air fryer, sandwich toaster, if you need them, the only thing i would request would be hand towels for each of the guests, as well as the lovely bath sheets, and hand towel for the kitchen.. Also, when utilising the single beds as a king size, a king size duvet, rather than double, small points . The house is in a fabulous location for some fantastic walks, with a relax in the hot tub on return, with a pub and shop at the bottom of the road, what more do you need. The shop has everything and both are very welcoming. Any issues and Mark attends to it straight away. Looking forward to our return visit,

  • "We had a wonderful time at Dingle Cottage."

    The house was beautiful and we enjoyed the evenings in front of the log burner with a class of wine. The local pub was welcoming and we enjoyed a drink there both evenings after our walks, we didn’t eat there so can’t comment on that. The setting was stunning and we took long hikes both days around the area, enjoying the hot tub afterwards. It was lovely not having to get the car out again until we were ready to leave. Our only gripe was the limited amount of crockery. There was only 8 of everything which was strange for a house which could accommodate 9. It meant we had to keep washing up as there were no dishwasher tablets. John’s shop in the village was essential for that. The wine, milk and bread was a lovely touch but to be honest we would have preferred a few dishwasher tablets and some spare toilet roll.

  • "A brilliant property in a beautiful setting."

    Fenced garden was great for the dogs. The children loved the dart board and table football and the hot tub of course. The kitchen had everything we needed and there was a lovely touch of fresh milk, bread etc when we arrived. Would definitely return to the this beautiful part of Shropshire and definitely consider this same property

  • "Amazing property and extremely well equipped but there wasn’t enough wine glasses."

    Our 2 dogs loved the outdoor space. We will definitely be back. The only improvement we can think of would be to provide separate towels for hot tub.

  • "We all loved our stay at Dingle cottage."

    The place was perfect for a long overdue family meet up. Our family included dogs, a baby, children and older ones and all of us enjoyed ourselves. The rooms were set up so we could enjoy each others company without been on top of each other, the little touches and designs showed that a lot of thought has been put in to making this place a perfect getaway, and the hot tub in the evening just added to the luxury .

    Also, there needs to be better outside furniture. Downstairs bedroom needs new carpet and furniture. Otherwise great space, inside and outside.

  • "We have just returned from a fabulous week at Dingle Cottage."

    Everything was as described but the garden space was amazing. We had brought our own sun chairs and blankets as there are only the picnic benches to sit on outside. We were blessed with the weather and spent most of our time lazing in the garden with the occasional dip in the hot tub. As the cottage is in a very rural area there are quite a lot of flies around. The shop in the village sells the sticky strips that you hang up and these are very effective! There are numerous walks from the cottage and many more in the surrounding area - I would recommend getting an OS map for the area on your phone. Our dogs loved it here, the whole garden is very well fenced off and they loved the steam running down one side which meant they could go for a paddle when they wanted to. We ate out twice at the Nags Head in Pontesbury - it isn’t dog friendly but there are lots of tables outside and the food is lovely.

  • "We had a wonderful week staying at Dingle Cottage, a well needed break after such a difficult year!"

    The house is wonderful, a real home from home equipped with everything we needed for self catering with an 8 month old baby! The owner Mark left us to our own devices but was there in a flash if we had any queries. Stunning scenery and walks from the front door and a fabulous reception and food at The Stiperstones Inn at the bottom of the hill. Also a great little shop selling everything and everything you might need. The locals are so friendly and we felt so welcome. Loved the cows in the field over the stream and staring into the night sky from the hot tub of an evening. A great find, we will definitely be back!

  • "The cottage was perfect for our family."

    The hot tub, the football net, the patio area and 2 separate lounges, one of which was the snug, meant everyone had space to do their own thing. The location was beautiful, with plenty of walks although a bit of a bumpy treck to the local pub and shop as we had a pram. I would highly recommend this cottage and hope to return again next year.

  • "Dingle Cottage is one of the nicest places we have stayed."

    The location is absolutely stunning. The house is extremely well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We only had 3 nights but will be back to stay for longer as soon as we can. It is so relaxing and the hot tub just tops it off. The only thing I will say is that some of the matresses could do with being softer but that is only personal preferance. This is a place ideal for children and dogs there is so much space and with 2 lounges and 5 bedrooms it makes it perfect for larger families or 2 familes. The owner was very responsive and easy to deal with as well. 5 stars from us!

STIPERSTONES

Church Stretton 8 miles; Shrewsbury 12 miles; Bishop’s Castle 12 miles; Ludlow 27 miles.

The village of Stiperstones nestles in an unspoilt valley on the slopes of the beautiful Stiperstones Hill range and is only eight miles from the delightful Church Stretton and 12 miles from the historic towns of Shrewsbury and Bishop’s Castle. This small Shropshire village boasts a shop and charming inn and is a perfect starting point for many scenic trails, with the summit of the famous Stiperstones Hill, a 1.5 mile walk, and the East Ridge Wood mountain bike trails very close by. This area is a designated National Nature Reserve, a SSSI and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is consequently a favourite place for outdoor and wildlife enthusiasts. The Stiperstones Hill range is dominated by dramatic quartzite tors, which tower above an unspoilt heathland, the most famous is the Devil’s Chair, whilst Manstone Rock is the highest point at 536m above sea level and offers stunning views on a clear day. A short drive away is one of England's finest heritage towns with over 600 listed buildings; Shrewsbury nestles on a loop of the River Severn. Shrewsbury has a magnificent abbey as well as Shrewsbury Castle, which stands in beautiful gardens and is home to the Shropshire Regimental Museum. There's plenty of interesting things to do in the area, with Attingham Park, Wroxeter Roman City, the museums at Ironbridge, and the castle and Michelin-starred restaurants of Ludlow, all making this hillside village the perfect touring spot for your Shropshire adventure.
