  • "Had lovely relaxing few days."

    Reviewed by SandraFeb 2022

  • "Excellent property in beautiful Shropshire countryside."

    These barns have been converted really nicely, leaving original beams, walls and high ceilings, and adding very comfortable furnishings. The on-site games, go-karts and pool/gym were great too. Really enjoyed our stay.

  • "We stayed for an extended family half term week in Turnip Cottage."

    The residence was immaculate. Warm, secure and cosy. There was everything we could need for a comfortable stay including a well appointed kitchen, WiFi, loads of books and maps and a decent TV. The facilities at the farm were stunning - animals to visit and feed, a wonderful multisport area where even go karts were available for the kids to pedal around on. The leisure complex was wonderful and we made good use of the lovely pool. The area is well placed for lovely country walks from the doorstep or further afield, visits to tourist attractions like Ironbridge, bustling towns like Much Wenlock or cities such as the lovely Shrewsbury. We've had a wonderful time, the kids settled in immediately (pretty amazing given their additional needs) and have gained so much confidence. We can't wait to return!

  • "Truly amazing stay."

    Well equipped, cosy cottage. Pool/relaxation area brilliant. Hosts very friendly and attentive. Loved the animals, collecting eggs fresh every day and feeding pigs. Visited Shrewsbury prison where Sean Bean spent 'Time'. Lovely independent shops in church stretton. Can recommend the blueberry pancakes with bacon and syrup at 'Berry's cafe'

  • "We have just returned from a brilliant family holiday at Turnip House."

    The cottage itself was lovely and spacious, but also very cosy and comfortable; we loved the combination of the traditional features together with all mod cons. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived and the homemade cakes and fresh flowers were a lovely touch. It was an ideal base for a family holiday, as the children had so much do on the farm itself; they were very excited to feed the pigs and collect eggs from the chickens; they played on the go carts and sandpit and loved all the space to run around. There's loads of land to explore, including a lovely 2 mile circular walk with waterside picnic area and lovely views. The owner Sara was really helpful in suggesting local things to do and on hand to deal with any requests. We had a couple of sessions at the swimming pool, which was stunning, and Sara even organised a local therapist to do hot stone massages for my husband and I in the spa area which was out of this world! We really couldn't fault the place and would love to go back again. Thanks Sara for making our stay so lovely

  • "Great cottage on farm with excellent facilities."

    We really enjoyed our family stay and Shropshire is a beautiful part of the country- we are hoping to return on a dryer week! Lots of facilities for children on site (we have twin 10 year olds). Pool and gym complex is great - slightly frustrating can only use in limited hours and it’s extra cost.

  • "We stayed in Turnip House for a family holiday with our children and dog."

    The cottage was spotless, comfy beds, really spacious and catered for our every need. There are two outdoor dining areas with a BBQ, seating for 8 indoors and so many different areas to sit and relax. There were fresh flowers on arrival in two rooms and had a lovely call from the owner before arrival and lovely greeting when we arrived. The pool is amazing - very clean and well catered with towels, music system and seating. The kids loved the animals the best - the pigs were absolutely adorable and we loved feeding them on a daily basis (we had to apologise as they are likely double the weight they were before we arrived). The horses, sheep and goats are lovely too. And my son collected eggs most days from the chickens. There is also a 2 mile walk to a pond with boat on the farm premises - it was idyllic. Would love to return again - it was the most relaxing time. Highly recommended.

  • "Great cottage."

    Very pretty with a great family room for everyone to hang out in. Really pretty walks nearby. Also enjoyed seeing the pigs and horses and chickens right next to cottage. Oh and a host that came to help find us at midnight on a Friday night - doesn’t get more hospitable than that.

    Many thanks for your great feedback and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "A fabulous top quality place for the family!"

    Everything was there that we needed and more. Attention to detail, fresh flowers in every room, lots of lovely toiletries, a very well equipped kitchen, beautiful interior design and absolutely loads of space both in our barn but also with the wonderful games rooms and outdoor play areas, great! The kids loved feeding the pigs, goats and chickens plus collecting eggs in the morning. The only down side, we thought the spa/pool was part of the deal..note it is not even though the photos are on the key info...it is separate at £40min per two hours (£10 each) and only two sessions per day available to book, very disappointed as we’d planned for the kids to swim each day, in the end we went in once which was a real shame. It is beautiful but rather expensive on top of the cost of the holiday.
