    The proprietors had put a lot of thought into the needs of self catering customers. I would give this property and its location a 10 + +

  • "Although the weather was bad we still had a great time, ideally situated to get out and about."

    The cottage was fully equipped and comfortable and would highly recommend. Struggled with phone signals but managed to work round that. Owner was on hand and made us feel very welcome including our two dogs.

  • "A very pleasant cottage in the Shropshire countryside near a small town with all the facilities you need."

    I think the cottage would benefit if there was a feature fire as heating is controlled from owners home. The bed was low for elderly people. Otherwise well equipped.

  • "My only criticism would be that my wife is allergic to cats & dogs."

    The bright sunlight did pick up some dog hair which unfortunately caused my wife some discomfort. Hence, unfortunately, in future we would not consider booking a cottage that took animals. Otherwise we have no complaint of the cottage.

  • "Really well presented cottage in a quiet location."

    Only issue encountered was the satnav postcode didn't take you to the exact location, once you got your bearings it wasn't a problem though. Overall my family enjoyed the holiday.

  • "Peaceful and scenic surroundings."

    The outside seating was very comfortable. Thoughtful observations about the "little everyday things" had been covered by the owners. Really enjoyed the break.

    The property was exactly what we needed and allowed us to rest and recover after cycling through the Welsh mountains. Would recommend to anyone looking for some fresh air and great scenery.

  • "So glad we got this little gem."

    Took our two grand daughters for a few days away and they loved the twin beds on the mezzanine level. It was central for loads of great places for days out. Even though we were only 30 miles from home it was a different world. So relaxing. Already planning our next trip.

About the location


Oswestry 8 miles; Shrewsbury 17 miles.

The pretty market town of Ellesmere with its Tudor, Georgian and Victorian buildings quietly nestles between the Shropshire Meres and the well-known Shropshire to Llangollen canal, in an area renowned as Shopshire's Lakeland. Steeped in history and originally fortified as an Anglo-Saxon settlement, this peaceful town boasts a lovely church with a 15th century roof and was home to Thomas Telford during the building of the canal network in the late 18th century. The town also boasts a good variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as an abundance of entertainment on and around the meres in the surrounding area. Stroll through Cremorne Gardens, go fishing or boating, take some time to explore Colemere Country Park with its wonderful wildlife and scenic walks, or walk along the canal. A lovely location offering something for everyone at any time of year.
