  • "The cottage was lovely."

    In a nice secluded area, with the sound of sheep birds and cows. The parents of the owner lived in close proximity, however they did not encroach on our privacy. They were really nice people. The cottage was very relaxing, and we found lots to do in the area. I would highly recommend this property.

  • "We have just returned from a weeks stay at Little Homefield."

    The cottage was lovely and was very well equipped. There was a more than generous welcome pack and this was very much appreciated. Geoff and Ivy are two lovely people and Edward really enjoyed the conversations he had with Geoff and also enjoyed the shopping trip. The cottage is situated in a lovely, peaceful setting and the country lanes around are quiet - perfect for enjoying a leisurely stroll. We enjoyed watching the sheep and especially the lambs as they jumped on and off the food troughs and ran races round the shed. We really enjoyed our stay it was perfect to just unwind and take is easy. Excellent.

  • "This ‘cottage’ is an exceptionally well equipped property set amongst the beautiful rolling hills of Shropshire."

    Everything you need for a quiet relaxing tranquil break with sheep and lambs as your neighbours, and next door to the owners parents should you require any information or assistance. It is beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. We had such a relaxing week here that we felt reluctant to leave but are most likely to return in the near future.

  • "I found the photo of this cottage to be misleading as there there is a house about 5 metres away from it, so it is overlooked."

    The information stated there was 2 TVs in fact there was only one, that one had a bad signal, some evenings unable to watch it. No one met us on arrival and no welcome back, as this was in late October we needed to know how the heating worked, I phoned the owner about the TV not working and she sent her husband to sort it, which he did and explained how to switch on the heating. The cottage was about 5 miles from the main road and some of the roads were single tracks with passing places at intervals, a heads up would have been nice. No I will not be returning to this cottage as to me it felt like once they had your money you just had to get on with it.

    Many thanks for your feedback, we have fed your comments back to the owner in order to maintain our property standards. Your views are as valued as your initial booking so that we can keep providing the best UK holiday experience. I can see we have resolved the complaint you logged in regards to your experience, clearing up any thoughts of misleading advertisement. Property Owner

  • "The cottage has everything you could need and more."

    Lovely welcome gifts, and extras like shampoo, shower gel etc. The owners parents live on the farm and are very friendly, welcoming and informative. The cows in the back field are very entertaining especially when they turn up behind your back at 11 o'clock at night! A very peaceful and cosy place to stay. Highly recommended.
