  • “Lots of things to like about this ...”
    Lots of things to like about this cottage - the cottage was beautifully decorated for Christmas, there was a welcome pack of delicious and practical goodies, lots of local books and tourist material to read and the owners are very kind and have loads of information about what to see and do. The cottage is warm and comfortable (we were there in Winter over Christmas), has everything you need in a home away from home, kitchen well equipped, a washer and a dryer in a separate laundry area, Wi-Fi ...
    Lots of things to like about this cottage - the cottage was beautifully decorated for Christmas, there was a welcome pack of delicious and practical goodies, lots of local books and tourist material to read and the owners are very kind and have loads of information about what to see and do. The cottage is warm and comfortable (we were there in Winter over Christmas), has everything you need in a home away from home, kitchen well equipped, a washer and a dryer in a separate laundry area, Wi-Fi good, comfortable furnishings. On-site, safe, easy parking. The location is excellent, it's a short car ride to the nearby town of Meole Brace where there is a really nice Sainsbury's and a few other shops, plus the Park 'n Ride to use to go into Shrewsbury easily. There's so much to see if you have a car:- Attingham Park; R.A.F. Cosford; Ironbridge and Much Wenlock; The Roman City; Chester; driving through Wales including seeing The British Ironwork Centre; Ludlow with its castle, cathedral and on the approach the Ludlow Food Market which is fascinating; Acton Burnell plus of course Shrewsbury itself with lovely walks around and in the city to see the Abbey, Cathedral, the Market, museums, the Castle and Tower. In summer there would be loads of lovely walking trails from the cottage to the town of Hook A Gate and Lyth Hill. The gardens to the cottage are beautiful and its a very quiet area, no traffic or road noise. I would wholeheartedly recommend this cottage for a short or long term rental.
