  • "This cottage was absolutely lovely!"

    It had everything you could possibly need while away and our pooch loved the enclosed garden so she could run around freely. It is also situated in a great place so it’s easy to get to shops if needed and to go explore the Shropshire countryside. Pete was a great host and was on hand if we needed anything. Overall, it was a great stay and we would happily book to stay again

  • "We had the best weekend!"

    Didn’t want to come home, we stayed 3 nights over bonfire weekend as our dog is scared of fireworks and it was the perfect getaway! Everything was so clean, comfortable and so cosy! Lovely and warm and had everything we needed. Pete was available for anything we needed during our stay. Can’t wait to return! Would definitely recommend!

  • "What a truly wonderful week."

    We have stayed in several cottages over the years, and this may well be our favourite. Total peace, quiet and relaxation. Spotlessly clean and extremely cosy. Very well equipped kitchen. If we ever come back to Shropshire, would definitely stay here! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  • "Lovely place to stay and local for family we were biding ."

    . 5* finish apart from sofa .. we could tell a lot of thought and no expense spared when holiday let was originally decorated / renovated which is why we felt the sofa let it down .. the springs felt like they had gone making it very uncomfortable and it smelt musty, luckily we always take throws away with us so covered the sofa for the duration of our stay .. also it would have been nice to have had an iron & ironing board at the property as we hadn’t taken one couldn’t iron clothes all week .. someone previously must have had the sane problem and used their own in bedroom carpet where there was an iron burn mark .. a few baking trays would have been a good idea also .. on the whole a lovely place to stay but as stated a couple of things could have made better

  • "Great converted barn accommodation done to a very high standard."

    Great location close to many attractions. Enjoyed our stay here wish we had booked longer so much to see in the area. Nice and quiet with a great out look over fields. One very small problem was the fenced garden was not totally secure as our small puppy could get under the large gate , however owner has said he will correct this. Will probably book the 2 bedroom barn next time as daughter wants to come.

  • "Great property."

    We used as a base to visit alot of Shropshire. It was set in a very tranquil area. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment. The whole property was clean and modern. The shower was excellent, (nothing worse than a lack lustre shower). We had 7 nights and it felt like home.

    Location was perfect for us to explore local places with the dog - Attingham Park, Haughmond etc. Thank you for such a lovely stay.

    My husband and I stayed here for 12 nights over Christmas and we have no complaints. Good communication with the owner.

  • "Stayed here for 3 weeks with my husband and Great Dane."

    The cottage is brand new and immaculate. Really cosy, warm and homely - larger than it looks in the pictures. The back door was great to let the dog straight out into the garden, where she loved to sit and watch out for Pheasants. Very well equipped with everything you need (and more!). Surprised it's just listed as 4 ticks. Pete, the owner, was on hand just in case and was very welcoming and helpful. It's a five min drive to the local village for groceries and the Chinese takeaway is excellent. We loved it and would definitely stay again.
