  • "We have just enjoyed a week in Highbury Cottage and very much hope to return next year."

    The cottage was extremely clean and comfortable and equipped with everything that we needed, certainly one of the best we've stayed in.

    Reviewed by Valerie5.0Sep 2023

  • "We had a nice week away in this comfortable and cosy cottage."

    Most things you could need are available and well layed out. Our host Jeff is a nice friendly gentleman, with whom nothing seems to be to much trouble. This was our 2nd stay, and we had some nice days out without having to travel too far, with enough still to do for next time. The cottage is reasonably easy to find, and even though it is in a rural location it is only 10mins travelling time from the lovely town of Shrewsbury.

  • "We had a wonderful time at Highbury Cottage, two weeks of peace and quiet."

    The cottage is in a wonderful rural area just outside Shrewsbury with good access to all major roads to visit places and attractions. The cottage contains everything you would need for your stay and the owner, Jeff, is on hand should you require anything, attentive but not obtrusive, we had some great chats and laughs with Jeff who sends out a welcome pack of information by email before you arrive, excellent idea. Little gifts left for your arrival complete the experience, all was good at Highbury.

    It was ideal for my husband who has some mobility issues - all on the level except for a very small step between the breakfast room and lounge. Jeff, the owner, was very friendly and helpful. Would certainly recommend this lovely cottage in the countryside as a marvellous place from which to explore the area around Shrewsbury.

  • "It was apparent that thought and care had been taken to make visitors as comfortable as possible in Highbury Cottage."

    It was certainly the best equipped place I've ever stayed in. Sending out the 'welcome pack' in advance made it easier to acclimatise to both the cottage and the area, and the fact that the owner was nearby and always prepared to help or advise proved to be a bonus. The cottage had the huge advantage of being situated in a quiet country area while being within easy reach of Shrewsbury in order to access bus and train networks, but it was also central enough that a great many places of interest could also be reached by car. I would have no hesitation in staying there again as well as recommending it to others.

  • "We found this to be a cosy, comfortable cottage in a quiet rural setting - really nice to have a separate kitchen, dining room and sitting room."

    Also the kitchen was well stocked with pans in good condition and cooking knives which are actually sharp as well as a good amount of crockery. Another plus point is having a bath as well as a shower in the property. The cottage also had its own private garden which was a real suntrap - complete with table, chairs & parasol. The owner was most helpful and friendly and emailed all the instructions to us in advance of our arrival - so nice to be able to reach one's holiday home after a long journey and not have to work through a book of instructions before being able to make a cup of tea because we had already had the opportunity to read this information. We were attracted to this specific cottage because of the reviews it received especially the compassionate treatment from the owner for a couple who had to cancel at short notice. If we were to holiday in this area again, we would certainly wish to rebook this cottage.
