    “This is a lovely cottage in an excellent location.”

    We received a very warm welcome from the owner, along with a bottle of wine and tasty cakes. She even sent us a text the next morning to check if everything was alright once we had settled in. We thought this was exceptional and a really nice touch. The cottage was much more spacious than we had expected, with a good sized breakfast kitchen, lounge and separate dining room. Even a separate dressing room next to the master bedroom. We are both 5'6" and the cottage just fitted us! We could ...

    We received a very warm welcome from the owner, along with a bottle of wine and tasty cakes. She even sent us a text the next morning to check if everything was alright once we had settled in. We thought this was exceptional and a really nice touch. The cottage was much more spacious than we had expected, with a good sized breakfast kitchen, lounge and separate dining room. Even a separate dressing room next to the master bedroom. We are both 5'6" and the cottage just fitted us! We could comfortably walk through all the doors and under the beams, without ducking. We can imagine this being a bit tiresome for taller visitors though. The shower over the bath, in particular has a very low beam, but with care, is still perfectly usable. The location suited us very well, being a small village, but within easy reach of main roads. Beautiful walks in the Shropshire hills, historic sites and gardens, and the industrial archaeology of Iron Bridge Gorge, all within half an hour's drive. We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to return.
