    It was extremely comfortable and clean, nice and warm and well furnished. The owner was pleasant and helpful and easy to chat to. On arrival we were nicely surprised to receive a welcome hamper with some useful items, very thoughtful. The local area was most enjoyable and mostly peaceful and the property was within easy driving of the main towns and for buying essentials and we had a good time exploring the picturesque Shropshire countryside.

    It is part of a working farm and the surrounding countryside is spectacular. Ideally situated near Church Stretton, Ludlow and Shrewsbury with easy access to the Shropshire Hills and the A5 taking you into Wales. We enjoyed our week in this lovely cottage, despite some unsettled weather. We can definitely recommend this cottage and hope to visit again soon.

  • "Having stayed in quite a few holiday cottages over the years, I can honestly say that Virginia Cottage was one of the best, if not THE best, I have ever experienced."

    It was extremely well equipped, especially with kitchen items, wonderfully warm and spotlessly clean. The layout is very nice, with the kitchen/dining area connected to the lounge so that you're able to chat and socialise even if you're the one doing the cooking. It also has a wonderful wood burner. The owners are extremely helpful and friendly, and made us feel very welcome. I would absolutely recommend Virginia Cottage for a relaxing break in pretty countryside.

About the location


Much Wenlock 7.5 miles; Church Stretton 8.5 miles; Shrewsbury 7 miles.

The pretty little village of Acton Burnell is set in rolling farmland a few miles from Shrewsbury and takes its name from Robert Burnell, famous for building the lovely castle and church here in the 13th Century. There are lovely walks along the local paths and bridleways and many Shropshire attractions are within easy driving distance, including the World Heritage Site at Ironbridge, Attingham Park, the market towns of Much Wenlock and Church Stretton, and of course, Shrewsbury itself. With its Castle, museums and Abbey and lovely half-timbered buildings, Shrewsbury is a delightful town to visit and offers a wealth of shops and restaurants.
