  • "We enjoyed our stay at this cottage."

    There was everything we needed in the kitchen, and our stay was very comfortable. Not that it was needed but we found a fire escape window in the 1st floor bedroom but this wasn't labelled as such, might be sensible to do this. Loved the area, nice walks around the village.

  • "We had such a wonderful time at The Granary."

    It is the perfect place to go with your family with some beautiful walks near by. We enjoyed a day out at Carding Mill Valley. The property owners are lovely and always at hand if you need help with anything. My little one loved feeding the farm animals and the fresh eggs went down a treat. Our dog who has epilepsy was so calm and relaxed at the property. It was just the break that we needed. We enjoyed it that much that we extended our stay from one week to two! The Granary is very spacious, clean and tidy. Logs were provided for the fire and the lighting makes for such a cosy atmosphere. I must admit the kitchen was my favourite place to relax. The welcome pack was a nice bonus and we can't wait to return! Thank you.

  • "The barn conversion was delightful."

    It was very spacious and comfortable. Although we didn’t need to see much of our hosts they were contactable if needed and were charming when we did bump into them. The area was very pretty with many good walks and interesting towns. There were also a number of good pubs to eat in and were all dog friendly All in all a very enjoyable stay.

  • "The details mentioned a pub close within a mile."

    This is now a housing estate so there was nowhere within walking distance for an evening meal. The Granary was nicely converted and layout was ok for us. Some of the decor was a little tired - but it was clean and the hosts were very welcoming. Position was ideal for touring with lots to see in the area.

  • "Lovely place to stay but at this time of year there is a lot of tractors with trailers to spread on the fields, which makes it a little noisy on an evening as they seem to be up and down the lane lots and this started at 6am and went on until late."

    We would definitely return had a fab week the tractors were not a problem for us. The owners were very pleasant and helpful.

  • "We had to book at very short notice."

    The lady at Sykes was amazingly helpful. All of the info we needed (location, access etc) was clearly provided in advance of our stay. The property owners were very friendly, there to help if necessary but didn't intrude on our privacy in any way. Lights were left on for our arrival (we got there in the dark), and flowers, a delicious cake, tea, coffee had been left for us. The property itself was full (to the brim) of character, clean, warm and well equipped. We particularly enjoyed the games cupboard and pool table. The location was exactly what the doctor ordered in terms of beautiful scenery, peace and tranquillity but with shops for essentials not too far away. All in all, a lovely stay.

  • "The cottage is just lovely and exactly as shown on the website."

    All of the rooms are lovely and the equipment provided in the kitchen is most of what you need to do some holiday cooking. We ate in every night and managed this comfortably. We managed to have a supermarket shop delivered to the cottage as well as a take away delivery but you don;t need to drive far to get to the local shops for everything you need. We really appreciated the efforts of the owners to make the many COVID-19 adaptations such as separate equipment buckets in the play barn with plenty of antibacterial spray and gel. We have two teenagers (17 and 14) and we had such fun playing pool, table tennis and badminton in the barn. The room at the top could be tricky for those with mobility issues but we decided to give this room to our 14 year old daughter who just loved having the four poster bed, own bathroom and games room. The shower up there was also compact but we appreciated having it. It did get incredibly hot up there but we did not predict the unseasonable hot weather we had all week. A couple of small fans would have been appreciated to help with the heat. A bin in the upstairs room and downstairs bathroom would have been appreciated and a dust pan and brush to help keep the kitchen clean as we go would also have been useful. Just tiny points though. The welcome book is very well written in a friendly manner and very informative - you can tell the owners care that you have a nice time in the area. We appreciated the time Tom took to show my husband and son around the farm and my husband had lots of fun helping them get the sheep from the field onto the farm when he spotted they were having difficulties. We have never been on holiday to Shropshire and we would definitely recommend it! There are lots of beautiful and interesting walks and places to visit. We definitely hope to return to the area and hopefully this cottage - thank you for sharing your beautiful farm with us.

  • "The cottage was very comfortable and well located."

    There was adequate parking and the welcome pack, including the cake was very gratefully received. The kitchen was well stocked with crockery and cooking utensils. We had a few issues but these were dealt with by the owner's family. I would like to point out that access to the single and twin bedded rooms are good but if one is going to use the double room, access could be a little steep for some. The need to bring towels is , in our recent experience, unusual. We had a good holiday, suggest that booklets giving instructions for the use of the cooker and dishwasher are made available in the cottage.

  • "The Granary was a most welcoming place providing cake, milk and all the necessary items for a welcome cup of tea after a long journey."

    Very central for all the many attractions in and around Shropshire. Great place for families with children. Our week was hot and sunny but had it been raining there was an excellent games room. Well worth a visit.

  • "This barn conversion is spacious, beautifully decorated and well set-up for a family stay."

    We were left a welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk and cake, which was much appreciated. Being on a farm, we had the chance to meet the farmer/owner and his family, plus dogs and cats, and also to take part in feeding the calves. An added bonus was having a pool table inside the property, and access to a games barn (pool, snooker, badminton, table tennis, trampoline) shared with one other property. There is no garden but there is a small enclosed courtyard with table and chairs. There is some occasional road noise as it is right on a lane and large farm vehicles speed past the kitchen window! (Anyone with mobility issues would find access to the master bedroom difficult due to the stairs up and over a beam!) The location of the property makes it a good base for trips out to Shrewbury, Church Stretton, the Long Mynd and Ironbridge. Highly recommended.

Lovely welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk and homemade cake and owners Nick and Jeanette were very friendly and helpful.

  • "Jeanette and Nick made us feel very welcome from day one."

    There was a delicious homemade cake and essentials on our arrival, the beds were comfortable and cosy for a good nights sleep. The quality the furnishings showed that the owners cared for our comfort. Jeanette took us for a walk around the fields and farm and then Nick showed the boys how to feed the calves, on the last day the boys had a ride on Nick's tractor. Surrounding area was very interesting, plenty to do, we found a couple of recreation fields where the boys could play football and cricket, you do need to drive there but it's not far, one in the next village on A49 towards Church Stretton and another one in Church Stretton itself. Two castle ruins (Clun and Montgomery) for the boys to explore (30 mins away) and Wales is so close we just had to pop over the border and explore some of the area. Plenty of shops nearby and Shrewsbury has a large retail park just 20 mins away. All in all an interesting holiday.

  • "Everything really the accommodation was lovely and quirky."

    It was a barn conversion and we could see a lot of thought had gone in to it and everything was really well thought out for the comfort of the guests staying. My husband and son loved the pool table above the kitchen so they could get a game in before tea and I only had to shout when it was ready as I knew where they were! The cottage was lovely and spacious every comfort was thought of. When we arrived a tray with tea bags, coffee, sugar and a lovely cake was waiting for us in the kitchen and a pint of milk in the fridge. Later in the week the farmer left us some eggs. Although we were on a working farm it was really quiet so we could enjoy a relaxing holiday! The weather was lovely too so that always helps. Really though there was nothing to find fault with just enjoy a lovely time in and around Shropshire which is exactly what we did!

  • "The granary is simply a stunning home from home."

    As you walk through the door...the welcome is warm, cozy and friendly. The christmas tree and candle flickering, the welcome tray with mince pies and fresh flowers...are all perfect. The whole house is stunning, but the kitchen is topping the list, with enough crockery to serve an army. The newly refurbished games barn has fun and games for all..but if you like to stay warm..theres pool on the landing..just above the kitchen. Play and chat as the cooking is done, fantastic. All nesltled in gorgeous Shropshire, that offers many many attractions for all, whatever the weather and whatever time of year. Our 2nd visit, over new year, equal to our first last year.
