    “The cottage and hot tub are not ...”
    The cottage and hot tub are not private in the fact that it is overlooked by a well-used horse riding paddock one side and a driveway the other side where the hot tub is and has low walls around (not good when you are in bathing suits). Felt like we were constantly being watched and really didn't settle or relax there. Hot tub broke down for over 24 hours. Couldn't contact owner to report initially. When finally came over, basically said we had broken it (we hadn't) and spoke to us like ...
    The cottage and hot tub are not private in the fact that it is overlooked by a well-used horse riding paddock one side and a driveway the other side where the hot tub is and has low walls around (not good when you are in bathing suits). Felt like we were constantly being watched and really didn't settle or relax there. Hot tub broke down for over 24 hours. Couldn't contact owner to report initially. When finally came over, basically said we had broken it (we hadn't) and spoke to us like children! They clearly do not welcome children either. She did not want the children in the hot tub (though we managed to convince her they would not do any harm etc as we have our own hot tub). The area where the hottub is requires some aesthetics....gravel, brickwalls and fencing isn't exactly exotic viewing...hot tub is located around the back, not the front where the views of the mountains are and the garden area. Lots of do's and don't's regarding using the place and the hot tub - if she cannot trust adults to treat the facilities with care, then perhaps she should not be hiring the property out at all. We gave her nothing to have concern about so could not understand her approach to paying guests. People want to relax and enjoy their precious holidays, not be constantly on edge. The barn itself is nice but the atmosphere is not! Shropshire on the other hand, is lovely, especially some of the hill walks and Telford Park and all it has to offer. Would visit the area again but not the property - have stayed in much better ones over the years but sadly the atmosphere and being watched over all the time ruins the lovely barn and holiday itself.

About the location

PITCHFORD

Much Wenlock 9 miles; Shrewsbury 9 miles; Church Stretton 10 miles.

The pretty, rural village of Pitchford is set in rolling farmland almost equidistant between Much Wenlock, Church Stretton and Shrewsbury. This Shropshire village is famous for Pichford Hall, one of the most notable Elizabethan Houses in Britain, which also boasts the world’s oldest tree house, which was built in the 18th century. There are lovely walks along the local paths and bridleways, and many Shropshire attractions are within easy driving distance, including the World Heritage Site at Ironbridge, Attingham Park, the market towns of Much Wenlock and Church Stretton, and of course, Shrewsbury itself, with its Castle, museums and abbey. Pitchford is a delightful village.
