  • "On the odd occasion that I needed to speak to Sarah the owner, I found her to be the most helpful and pleasant lady."

    She couldn't do enough to help. The cottage is just wonderful everything you need is there, lovely views from upstairs living room. Yes it's an upside down house, very comfortable. There's a lovely curry house within walking distance to lots walking routes nearby. There's Ironbridge not too far away also Shrewsbury's a really beautiful place to visit. And where ever you choose to go there's so much to see and do, and it's not far away from Wales if fancy a good day out. It's definitely worth the trip and good value for the money. We don't usually go back anywhere but who knows if we go back to Shropshire we will definitely think about it. And we absolutely recommend the cottage to anyone who's going to the area. Enjoy it if you go I'm sure you will.

  • "We stayed at Heribert cottage June 11th 2022 for one week, the cottage was a real gem situated in the country side but close to many amenities."

    The cottage was well maintained and loved obviously by the owner. It was very well equipped with everything you would expect, the cottage was also cleaned to a very high standard. There was also a very nice surprise with a welcome pack, Sarah also contacted us as soon as we arrived to see if everything was OK with the cottage. We would recommend this cottage it was fabulous for a chill out. Ed /Jane S Wales.

  • "The cottage was extremely clean and comfortable with many useful items/gadgets etc."

    It was probably one of the 'better' cottages that we have stayed in. There were teabags, coffee, milk and biscuits to greet us upon arrival. The owner rang us before and during our stay to check that everything was as it should be and to enquire if there were any problems.

  • "We really enjoyed our week at Heribert Cottage."

    Very comfortable, clean, well equipped, quiet, and an overall great place to stay. The cottage was also more spacious than we had expected from the photos. It was a good base to visit National Trust properties in Shropshire and Wales, with a dedicated parking space so we never had to worry about that when we returned. The patio is planted with beautiful flowers, so we definitely enjoyed a coffee out there most days.

  • "Cannot speak high enough praise of Sarah - the owner."

    She seemed to think of the little things. As the temperature rose she even went out of her way to bring us 2 electric fans!!! When we met her, she was so keen that our stay was fine. The cottage was in a good position to get to places. It was in a very quiet situation but some good eating places within easy reach. Bed was really comfortable. Would award Sarah 11 out of 10!!
