  • "As soon as we walked in the cottage we knew it would be wonderful."

    A lovely welcome from Moira who explained various things. Meeson View is just stunning and equipped to the highest standard with top of the range appliances - even a Ninja air fryer! There really is nothing else you could need. Very comfy bed and cotton bedding. The cottage is very warm too - I imagine you would roast if you lit the wonderful woodburner! Love the open plan layout. Very peaceful location and field views - with a few sheep who are great to watch. We had great weather. Would recommend a visit to Hodnet gardens - just stunning. Check opening times. Meeson View has to be the best holiday let we have been in - and we’ve had many!

  • "Moira's friendly greeting, on our arrival, was the start of a special week."

    That first opening of the front door,the very first impression stops you in your tracks. We knew it would be nice from the photos but this is just different class. A wonderful ,tasteful conversation. High vaulted ceilings, sturdy beams,expensive,heavy,lined curtains. Extremely comfortable King size bed with plump pillows and fresh white linen.. The quality equipment in the kitchen( all AEG) and the added bonus of a twin Ninja air fryer. In the words of Peter Kay " It's The future". The tasteful touches,quirky ornaments, ceramic rabbits, gorgeous artwork all add to the ambience. Warm and cosy evenings by the log burner,the centrepiece of this huge room, gazing across the open fields to the woods beyond. Thoughtful welcome gifts of home baked biscuits and a bottle of New Zealand Sauvignon were just the icing on the cake. If I had one very slight issue it was that with all that constant hot water a slightly more powerful shower with the ability to adjust the temperature warmer( taking safety issues into account) would be welcome. However,that didn't take away any of our enjoyment of staying in this beautiful property. Moira and David are fantastic hosts. Thanks so much to them for creating this haven of tranquillity.

    The weather was good, so we enjoyed daily outings in Shropshire, a county we hadn't stayed in, or explored before - plenty to do and see. The accommodation was everything we had hoped for from the description and photos; the garden and land beyond was lovely and peaceful. Amongst other wildlife, we spotted a hare, a pair of wrens and a buzzard. We can highly recommend for a truly memorable break.

    The barn conversion which has been completed by David to the highest standards, was just stunning, it really is a luxurious place to stay. The pictures on the website, whilst completely accurate, do not do justice to the amount of space you actually get in this property, and everything is arranged beautifully. The fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality, and whilst not mentioned in the description there is also a slimline dishwasher and washer dryer which were an added bonus. (Additionally, instructions on how to use all the appliances were also included which is most helpful). The Wi-Fi signal was strong, fast and on the whole reliable, certainly it’s the best Wi-Fi coverage we have had when compared to other properties we have stayed in. This property is all about the detail, from the high quality of the furnishings and accessories to the homemade scones, fresh flowers and miniature toiletries (just in case you’ve forgotten your own) that are provided; it really feels like home away from home and we would have no hesitation to stay here again and again! For things to do we would recommend the Dorothy Clive Gardens (food from the tearoom was lovely), Shrewsbury, Telford, Blists Hill Victorian Town, Market Drayton (small but quaint, great artisan chocolate shop), and if you’re happy to travel a bit further afield then the Potteries and its ceramics outlet stores (Emma Bridgewater, Wedgewood and Portmeirion etc.) make for a great day out too!
