  • "A lovely property and a wonderful location."

    So enjoyable being able to watch the busyness of the stables and explore the gardens and woods. Liz is a really nice lady and everyone was so friendly. Hope we can make it back real soon. Gogfrey, Carolyn and Matthew.

  • "Excellent location."

    Betty’s Barn has been designed to a high standard. Very well equipped, especially the kitchen. Also appreciated lots of drawer space and plenty of coat hangers! Very clean. Owners very helpful and friendly. Hoping to return next year to visit all the places we didn’t manage to get to this time.

    My mistake but an enclosed area would have been useful. From a personal point of view I would have also liked additional recycling facilities as I recycle just about everything at home!

  • "We loved our stay at Betty's Barn."

    The accommodation was clean and comfortable. Countryside all around is stunning. What makes Betty's Barn so special is the wonderful family that own and run it. Never intrusive, but always so welcoming. We honestly felt like we were staying with friends. If you have children they will love all the animals. We will definitely be going back.

    Also, enough hot water to fill the bath - to be fair the bath was very big though. Other than that, and these are very small things, everything was great.

  • "This is a lovely cottage in a lovely area with lots of great walks near by."

    I would especially rate the Long Myndd and Much Wenlock as really nice walks. Also just 30 minutes away by car is the Ironbridge George which I would also recommend. My only comment about the accommodation is I could not find the black binder with all the instructions for the cottage and what to do when you check out. Other than that it was excellent. I hope to come back someday in the future.

  • "We had a great stay at Betty’s Barn."

    The Christmas tree and decorations were a lovely welcoming touch. The cottage was spacious, clean, characterful, and well-equipped. Our dog loved the walks around the garden and woodland - we were a bit concerned about not having an enclosed garden, but there is a shared lawn area at the front and this was fine keeping her on a long lead. Lovely to see the horses (stables just opposite the cottages) and everyone we met was very friendly. There is a 10min drive through single track lanes to get to the farm from Church Stretton, where we were visiting family. Great if you want to get away from everything, see the stars and hear the owls at night!

    It is in a wonderful setting surrounded by open countryside. The cottage is warm, cosy and well equiped. It is spotlessly clean. It really has a lovely feel to it! The bed was very comfortable and there is a shower in the ensuite and a huge bath in the seperate bathroom. There are walks from the house, we walked to Wenlock Edge from the door. There are also marked paths through the woods behind the farm, great for a morning walk with the dog! It is short drive to Church Stretton where there are many great walks. We had a lovely week at Betty's Barn and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

  • "Cottage well equiped ."

    Nice layout and clean everywhere. A low step from kitchen to lounge area and to the rest of the property . Only two niggles i had was the dirty oven and very bright bedroom ceiling blinds. Double set of internal stairs with handrails to bedrooms and bathrooms. Both upstairs bedrooms were on eitherside of the property. Each room had a double and a single bed which were firm with nice bedding. There were early morning sounds and activites from wildlife and the stables behind the property so not as quiet as we thought though this didnt spoil our holiday. The property literaly backs onto the lane and is not fenced from the road. Only one side of the property is for outside sitting in the small grassed area. It faces onto the horse fields and gets the sunshine which is very pleasant. The property location is great for all the attractions and beautiful sceenery.

    The cottage was clean, comfortable and extremely roomy. Mrs Kite had put a Christmas tree up for the previous occupants and left it there for us to enjoy! On the table were 4 boxes with lots of chocolate treats and 3 small bottles of wine. What a lovely surprise! We certainly enjoyed bringing in the New year! On New Year’s Day, Mrs Kite came over to wish us a happy New Year and invited us to come and meet the horses etc. We were feeding the peacocks peanuts, which is something I have never done before! My daughter and I walked round their private gardens, absolutely beautiful! The peace and quiet certainly was most welcoming. Will definitely recommend.

    It is spacious, warm and cosy and the owners are very friendly and welcoming - there if you need them, but always respectful of guests' privacy. It is in a wonderful location and the woodland walks within the grounds were perfect for our dogs - keep a lookout for the intersting sculptures dotted around! The surrounding countryside was an artist's palette of wonderful Autumn colours and we were lucky with the weather which, although cold and crisp early morning, developed into days that were warm, bright and sunny - what a fantastic time of year this is to visit! It is within easy reach of a variety of interesting places, Carding Mill Valley and Gigrin Farm Red Kite Centre being our particular favourites, but can also recommend Ludlow Food Centre and restaurant. We would definitely return to Betty's Barn and have already recommended it to family and friends and would like to thank the Vine-Kite family for an absolutely wonderful holiday!
