    It was well equipped , the bed was comfortable, the water hot, and the shower powerful! It is situated in a very quiet village but is still close to main routes for visiting places of interest. We visited all the different attractions of the Ironbridge Gorge which took all week so we will have to make a return visit to see other attractions.

    Owners even leant me a fan to combat the hot weather. Just two items I would like to find there .... A sieve for cooking, and a handrail in the shower on the wall opposite the shower apparatus. Holding the part that adjusts the water can be difficult with your back to the shower. Otherwise a nice place to stay !

    Lots of lovely walks around the village. Quite and peaceful for the majority of the time. I’m ok with farm noises, my family were not. This next comment comes from experience. I ran my own bed and breakfast for 16 years. The cottage would benefit from a deep clean and flowers in the tubs next season, I believe that this would take it to the next level , splendid! Thank you for the wonderful stay. Sorry I couldn’t find a pen or I would have written in the book .

  • "This property is one of the best we have stayed in."

    Exceptionally clean everywhere (aside from the microwave which we didn't use anyway) and tastefully furnished throughout. It is spacious and there is plenty of outdoor space for the dog which is enclosed. There is parking right outside the front door which is convenient. The wifi was great and they left a really lovely welcome hamper for our arrival. The owners were friendly and accommodating. Even though it is a working farm it was generally always really quiet. You can walk into the village where there is a small shop and a few nice dog walks. Kitchen is a good size with good storage. The bedrooms were beautifully decorated and a decent size. The log burner was just perfect for those cold days. It was really nice to have access to outdoor space from the main bedroom via the patio door. The property is very private and the owners although nearby gave us our privacy. Acton Burnell Castle is a short walk away and well worth a visit. I would definitely stay here again and can certainly recommend staying here you will find the photos don't do the accommodation justice as it certainly exceeded our expectations. Thank you to the owners for being so accommodating with us, we had a wonderful stay.

The property

A superb conversion of a former barn, Virginia Cottage is situated on a working farm on the edge of Acton Burnell in this peaceful and undiscovered area of Shropshire.

Detached and built of traditional local brick, the cottage offers accommodation of a very high standard being tastefully decorated in a contemporary yet cosy style.

It is light and airy throughout and there are French doors opening onto two private patio areas where guests can relax with a glass of wine on warm summer evenings.

The owners live at the farm and personally welcome visitors.

A perfect retreat to 'get away from it all' and explore the hidden delights of Shropshire!
