  • "Tracy and Paul provided a property for our holiday which we considered to be second to none."

    They were welcoming, helpful, affable and amendable. Nothing was a problem and the property was presented in a scrupulously clean, tidy and comfortable manner with every amenity available to ensure all needs were catered for. We have spent many holidays and breaks in a variety of properties through Sykes in different locations of the UK. None of them surpassed Parr Meadows in any way. From the first moment we arrived we immediately felt completely relaxed and totally at home. We cannot recommend this property high enough and Tracy/Paul for providing the opportunity to us to experience the most relaxing and enjoyable break we have enjoyed in many years.

    Thank you Mike for such a wonderful review. Paul and I are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Reviews like this are really appreciated as it is lovely to know we are managing to exceed customers expectations. Best regards and thank you again. Tracy Property Owner

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property."

    The cottage was spacious, comfortable and fully met our needs. There was ample parking in an attractive setting and a very pretty garden with good views beyond. It was in a quiet village yet proved a good base for exploring the local area. We enjoyed exploring some of the local walks and access to the nearby hills as well as other places of interest. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

    Thank you so much for your lovely review. I am so pleased you had a wonderful stay. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was lovely, very quiet, well fitted out, extremely comfy bed and very clean."

    Nice location and close to many places of interest. Not sure if I would recommend Sykes though as they sent out inaccurate information to me about the property having a hot tub which apparently had been removed about 2 years before. This was disappointing. I have no idea why the information had not been checked by Sykes or even run past the property owner for checking. Very bad management.

  • "Stayed at Parrs Meadow Cottage in early February."

    It is a lovely, comfortable, barn conversion. Well equipped with everything you need. Paul and Tracy very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Great for a relaxing, peaceful, getaway. Ideal location for visiting local historic villages. Close to Shropshire Hills for walking and exploring the scenic countryside. Also within easy reach of Shrewsbury, Church Stretton, Craven Arms, Ludlow, to name just a few! Great places to eat and everyone so friendly. Would definitely recommend and would return again for another stay. Jane.

  • "The cottage was beautifully furnished and very comfortable."

    A lovely garden with a beautiful big apple tree one side and a large patio area with table and chairs the other side which, if only the weather had been kinder, we would love to have made use of. (It was October after all !) Kitchen was well appointed and plenty of clothes storage in the large and comfy bedroom. The area was very quiet and peaceful but in easy distance of Shrewsbury with all it's amenities.

    Location is fairly remote but very quiet and it has fantastic skies at night due to lack of light pollution . We would highly recommend this as a base for your holiday it is just a short car ride to Shrewsbury and plenty of attractions.

  • "We loved our stay at this converted barn."

    It was so peaceful, well equipped, comfortable and clean and had everything we needed. It is a lovely quiet village, so your own transport is essential, but very close to Shrewsbury and great hill walking just south of the cottage around Church Stretton. Lovely gardens and patio area - the patio gets the afternoon and evening sun which is lovely for sitting out. Would highly recommend it as a base for South Shropshire.

    It is in very rural area and a car is essential to get about. The two gardens are beautiful, and the hot tub is great but if you are night hawks is not for use after10p.m. There are no shops nearby but 15 mins to the supermarkets in Shewsbery.

  • "Our week at Parr’s Meadow Cottage was definitely one of the most relaxing & peaceful holiday breaks we have ever had."

    The noisiest thing within earshot being the sparrows nests in the eaves. Being able to sit in the garden overlooking the lovely countryside was a joy. We were particularly lucky with the weather too so getting in and out of the hot tub wasn’t a problem. But even a cooler day the lovely warm hot tub is treat. The patio outside the kitchen is a great little sun trap too. Loved the area so many interesting places to visit ‘Wroxeter Roman City’ ‘Much Wenlock’ & Attingham Hall. There are many decent pubs 10 to 20 minutes drive where you can get a good meal. However if you want something a little more unusual Shrewsbury has a wider choice from Japanese to a Moroccan restaurant which we really enjoyed called ‘Csons’. There aren’t many holiday cottages where we say we would like to return but this is one of them. Thank you too to our great hosts Tracy & Paul who have thought of everything that their guests might need. Highly recommend this accommodation.

    She explained the use of the hot tub which was a luxury to relax in and was always very helpful with any other queries. The cottage itself is a luxury and very well equipped. The views of open countryside from the windows were beautiful and simply left me breathless. Great for peace and easy drive or walks through villages. Pubs and local shops nearby but need car. Cannot wait to return.

  • "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.

  • "Great cottage, well equipped , good location for cycling."

    Shame no where to eat in walking distance, so self catered but v well equipped to do so. Good value if renting for a week, but we could only do the weekend so a little pricey for our stay, which we knew when booking but had we been organised we'd have done a week for only £70 extra I think. Would definitely return. Hot tub great too for chilling after a day on bikes.

    Very quiet location overlooking fields and the Wrekin beyond. The cottage was of a very high standard, spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. Hot tub was one of the main reasons for booking and was ideal after a long 10 mile walk at the end of the day. Would definitely book again.

  • "The cottage is beautiful, well equipped with everything you could need on holiday!"

    The garden at the front of the cottage is lovely we spent many an evening just relaxing there and the hot tub was a real treat! Overall the cottage was bliss, central to a lot of places of interest and restaurants and local pubs and the local shops (asda and sainsburys) were only a short drive away if you needed anything. What made our holiday special was the friendliness of the owners who took time out of their day to introduce our little girl (5years) to their dog, chickens and horses, which she thoroughly enjoyed!! We will definately be rebooking this cottage, we didn't want to come home!!

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.
