  • "We found it difficult to find the cottage, and owners directions were inaccurate."

    On arrival, very pleased with cleanliness and condition. But disappointed with lack of dogwaste bin as was advertised and lack of bin liners. Also had to buy desert bowls. Therefore inventory needs tweaking.

  • "Suitable for 3 people if one is happy to sleep on camp bed in living room."

    Good size and well equipped kitchen. No WiFi and poor reception. Nice quiet area with large garden. Beautiful surroundings.

  • "A nice relaxing break."

    Fortunately the weather was fantastic , 29 degrees all week!! Plenty to do and see in the local area. The cottage was as advertised, fairly small but ideal for a couple and dog friendly. Gas & charcoal BBQs for outdoor cooking, a new range cooker internally. The cottage was well equipped and had everything that we needed. The owners who live next door were friendly and helpful. There is a large garden with picnic table plenty of room for parking. Unfortunately you can't look onto the garden. Patio doors could easily be fitted to the side of the kitchen where a chair and mirror is currently positioned. A paved patio area to sit out and looking onto the garden would be a nice touch.......something to consider for the future maybe?? All in all a great week we enjoyed it

  • "We had a fabulous holiday it was very peaceful and tranquil, the garden was very large and secure for both my dogs to run around in."

    a great location to go out dog walking straight from the front door and lots of local places to visit the surrounding area is very beautiful. we will definitely return in the future as there is still a lot more to see.

  • "Cottage was run down, the decking was old and spongy."

    The kitchen cupboards doors were very grubby, the kettle was filthy and I had to wash it and the fridge door handle was dirty and sticky. Also there was mould at the base of the shore. There were lots of damp relieving bowls with gel in to prevent the damp, but the cottage still felt damp on arrival. Kitchen window would not open. The drawer in the bathroom was broken and hanging out. The owners had not provided soap in the bathroom or washing up liquid. We left the property within 1/2 an hour of arrival as we didn’t feel it was up to standard

  • "The description and photos are not accurate and this is due to them being out of date."

    The garden has been reduced in size due to a fence being in place and this is not shown in the photo. There is not a stereo system in the property, though it features in the photos. Also we could not see a BBQ at the property. The property’s cleanliness is not at a standard that is expected from a holiday rental. The fridge and cupboards have not been cleaned for a long time. The shower area has also not had a thorough clean for a long time. Also outside the entrance there is an old mop and bucket which is so old that plants are growing out of the mop. We had to give everything a clean before we used it, e.g. the fridge and the kettle etc. Also the sofa is old and extremely uncomfortable. My husband had to sit on a dining chair all week. The location of the cottage is beautiful and the cottage has a homely and cosy charm. If the above criticisms were resolved it would be absolutely perfect.

  • "Location of the cottage was great especially for our dogs with the enclosed paddock and plenty of space."

    Local knowledge of walks would have been helpful. We found some walks which were on the doorstep eventually. The cottage is comfortable, warm and loads of space for the dogs. No WiFi which was good because you’re not tempted to sit on your phone etc. This was one of our best holidays .

  • "Cleanliness in bathroom needs to improve especially around shower."

    Some basics missing in kitchen grater , sieve , cleaning materials. Attention to detail in decoration, no welcome pack only a hand written book with very little information, nothing about local dog walks or dog friendly pubs.

    Clean, excellent enclosed garden for dogs..plus extra field to go in. Cosy when heating was on. No Wi-Fi A little remote but lovely if you love the countryside. Mr Bailey couldn't do enough to help. Shooting school quite nearby...OK if your dogs don't mind.

  • "The property is in a very quiet rural location , which suited us as we like the piece and quiet ."

    ...but you are out in the 'sticks ' and this wouldn't suit everybody . We had our two dogs with us both 14 years old and as one doesn't walk so well it was perfect with a huge garden and fields ajecent for us to walk in. The cottage is much larger then it looks on the photos and it's plenty big enough inside for a couple and dogs. The settee isn't that comfy and the only other seating is at the table and chairs in the kitchen area . Although the weather was nice when we were there and we sat outside also . There is a bench and a picnic table . The cottage was warm we did put the Heaters on one night when it went about chilly. They made it nice and cosy. There were lots of plates cutlery and pots and pans. The kettle wasn't very nice as it was really very full off lime scale I know this is tricky if you live in an area with this problem ....but it either needs to be cleaned out or perhaps buy cheap kettles that can easily be replaced ....I just boiled water in a pan for making a drink it wasn't a problem . . Cooker was great ...nice big oven ...washer great.....nice big long line to peg out on. Nice fridge freezer .Shower was nice and warm although again think head needed a clean out due to limescale as water from head was coming out at all angels . Bed was comfy ....the owner was lovely extremely friendly we saw him on arrival and he welcomed us...we didn't see him after that s he was away . He made us feel most welcome and told us directions for shops and to make full use of the garden etc. There were lots of nice books in the cottage of which I read some , andgames , magazines The drive down to the cottage is down a long lane in places this it extremely narrow ...can be tricky if other cars Lorries are coming in the opposite direction as there a few passing places . It's not many minutes from Shrewsbury in one direction and market Drayton in the other and some smaller places in between worth a visit all very dog friendly . A week was a little long for us and we felt that a 4 day break would of suited us better . Only because like I said our dogs are old and we felt we had been to most places and see what we wanted to see and do. We did enjoy our stay very much , we felt the price we paid was a good one the distance we travelled was easy as it didn't take us long to get there...and the owner was lovely and said we could get in by dinner time ...so we had a full day. Often you can't get in till the afternoon so that was great. I would recommend this cottage to anyone wishing to get away from it all the scenery is stunning and if you enjoy being outdoors ,walking, countryside this would be right up your street . And this cottage is extremely dog friendly ....that for us was brilliant ! thank you for making us and two old dogs very happy!
