  • "Great cottage in the village of All Stratton - the kitchen area was fab and with 2 dogs, this is where we spent the majority of our time."

    Hot tub was a great feature and well needed after walking the nearby Carding Mill Valley! Everything we needed was provided in the accommodation and we would definitely return!

  • "The area was beautiful & the cottage was lovely!"

    Definitely would go back!!

  • "The property was listed as pet friendly, however in reality the dog was confined to the kitchen area."

    There were signs on the doors excluding the dog from entering the rooms.

  • "Nice house and an easy stay."

    The kitchen especially could have been far better equipped

  • "The barn was beautiful."

    Richard was so very helpful and even managed to get us an umbrella for the garden as it was so hot! The kitchen area was stunning and we didn’t expect it to be that nice! Gorgeous views of the countryside and peaceful surroundings. The only small thing was the bathroom was quite dark and needed more of a “power shower” but this didn’t take away from the rest of the holiday!

  • "A big thankyou to the owners of Old Barn 2 for their flexibility after we contacted them through Sykes given some difficult personal circumstances."

    We would definitely again.

  • "We had a great time staying at the cottage and loved relaxing in the hot tub at the end of each days walking."

    Loads of great places for walking from the cottage. Dog had a great time. Cottage was really well appointed and in a great location. Would love to go back sometime.

  • "Cottage was in a very good location, with excellent walks on the doorstep while still being very close to all amenities."

    While the cottage was comfortable, there was a lack of attention to detail. Loose kitchen cupboard door; broken cutlery tray in dishwasher; very noisy bathroom fan and difficult to regulate shower. The bedroom curtains were very thin, so we were woken at 5 each morning when the sun came up. I would recommend this cottage, but only as 3*** accommodation.

  • "Property is in a lovely position."

    We did find that the showerhead in the bathroom needed attention, we could not get it to flow properly. Also we found the taps on the washbasins difficult to turn off. Otherwise we were comforable and happy.

  • "Wonderful location with amazing walks."

    Great place to take dogs. Loved the cottage overall, especially the spacious kitchen with soft seating area. Good outside space. Some attention to detail required eg broken cutlery container in dishwasher, dingy bathroom in need of decent lighting, heating settings all over the place and no instructions how to reset, soup spoons instead of dessert spoons, child-size forks only (who knew cutlery was so important?!)

  • "Excellent holiday cottage in superb location."

    Secluded garden with hot tub was perfect for my group, we were able to walk the hills and come back to relax very easily. Would recommend over and over and hosts were brilliant. The only 'issue' we really had was that between five adults, one shower is stretching it.

  • "Lovely quiet location with beautiful surroundings and views."

    Property clean and very welcoming. Would maybe benefit from a heated towel rail, although mainly due to us getting soaked on one day of our break. Would definitely visit and stay at Old Hall Barn again.

  • "It had everything we needed, we enjoyed the hot tub, the secure garden was a must for our dog, a good base for exploring the surrounding area, friendly owners."

    Also the nearby fishing lake kept the anglers in our family happy.

  • "This cottage was lovely, if there was a some sort of roof or covering over the top of the hot tub it would make all the difference on rainy days."

    Although we still used it

  • "The hot tub was excellent but there needs to be an outside light, the owner came & had a look & said he’d be back the next morning to fix it but never did."

    The back door latch and handle were both broken so I had to use a fork each time we needed to open the door to try & prise it down. It was lovely & spacious but I wouldn’t stay again.

  • "Beautiful spacious property with a huge kitchen dinner room and a separate lounge with a television in both areas."

    The owner is very prompt to deal with minor issues and unobtrusively on hand for anything you may need. Stunning views from the hot tub and walking from the doorstep. A great all round thumbs up.

    I work for Sykes on reservations and I had an amazing stay here. The owners were lovely and helpful if we had any problems the area is also really nice with lots of pubs and nice cafes for breakfast. Lovely lemon drizzle cake and Prosecco on arrival. The hot tub was lovely and the beds were comfy and the telly in the front room had Netflix which was a plus. Overall it was lovely and would 100% recommend!

    Church Stretton is a lovely village and has an amazing deli... our dogs loved it and were very safe in the enclosed garden... the hot tub was very clean and warm. The owner was very helpful but not intrusive and even added a plank to the bottom of the fence so that our nosey small ninja dog couldn’t escape... oh and the lemon drizzle cake was amazing!! Thank you.... highly recommended and we hope to be back

  • "The property was spacious, comfortable and well equipped."

    There were some lovely, welcoming touches from the owners and they were unobtrusive during or stay. The views were amazing with pub just around the corner and the main town of Church Stretton about 1.5 miles away. Loved the hot tub and property offered an ideal base to explore some of the Shropshire countryside.

  • "The cottage is lovely, comfortable and well-equipped."

    My dogs were very happy in the enclosed garden. Lovely views from the hot tub! The owners were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. There was plenty of wildlife to watch from the garden - my mum even saw a heron close-up, that came down to the stream at the bottom of the garden. There are a lot of walks nearby, with Long Mynd and Carding Mill Valley virtually on the doorstep. Church Stretton is about a 15 minute walk (or a quick drive) away - a pretty little town. The golf course also welcomes walkers and dogs (on leads, there are sheep everywhere) and you can get a coffee there when the clubhouse is open. We had a nice lunch in the beer garden of the pub in Little Stretton, which also allows dogs. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay if you like walking, or just want to sit and relax.
