  • "What a beautiful location!"

    I went with my dogs for a few days of peace and quiet and walks. The cottage was delightful and the location was ideal for walks and central for visiting other places in Shropshire. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would go again. The owners were friendly and helpful too and kindly returned money which I’d left in a book that I’d finished and left there. Wish I’d stayed longer.

  • "An imaginative barn conversion has created a lovely little cottage in Kite’s Nest (and two others)."

    The gardens of the owner’s Manor House are delightful, with a marked path to follow, which we greatly enjoyed until the mud defeated us!

  • "Small but perfect for a couple."

    Well equipped and decorated throughout and in an idyllic, super-quiet setting. Good WiFi and even a Chromecast to link to your phone for streaming! The owners could not have been more welcoming and friendly, giving access to their huge garden and woods. Hens roam free and there's a menagerie of friendly birds too. Cannot recommend Kite's Nest more highly. We'll certainly be back.

  • "Liked the remote situation and the collection of animals that we say around the farm ."

    A chicken came for breakfast most days and some of the horses and riders where training for an event ( very entertaining ) plenty of walks both near and far . Fairly easy reach to towns and villages including heritage railway ,a must for steam enthusiasts !

  • "Lovely location with walking straight from the door to Wenlock Edge."

    Footpath waymarkers bit hit and miss. Cottage looks out over horse paddocks. Farm has peacocks, turkeys, geese and chickens as well as stables. Holiday was very relaxing.

  • "Very peaceful and quiet apart from the peacock!"

    Liked all of the hens, turkeys etc that roamed free range during the day. Good country walks from the property ideal for my dog - only used the car twice in the week. Property was well equipped, warm and comfortable. Just what I wanted.

  • "The location of these rather pleasant barn conversions seems the most remote of places."

    There is as near to zero traffic as you will get. The only sounds in the morning and evening are the activities of the local hens, peacocks and horses. The lanes are very narrow and windy, but there is very little traffic, so nothing to worry about. Shopping at Craven Arms or Church Stretton for food is around 20 minutes away. Wonderful walking country on your doorstep and interesting places to visit such as Much Wenlock and Ludlow are both very close. Although we went at the height of the tourist season, it still feels relatively undiscovered as an area. The hostess was very friendly and interested. They live in New Hall which is a fifteenth century house, with extensive gardens and woodlands. They have created a rather nice walk for the guests to wonder around, which is an added bonus.

  • "This holiday cottage was a delight from beginning to end- the beautiful location; the colourful cockerels, chickens and ducks wandering about; the splendid garden trails and wildlife."

    A parasol for the picnic bench would have been useful during the warm afternoons and evenings.

  • "Whilst the cottage is compact it had everything we needed for our stay."

    It’s a little remote being a few miles out of Church Stretton but very peaceful, despite living amongst the chickens, ducks & peacocks (which just added to the charm). It was nice to have a dishwasher as this saved time on chores, though the dinner plates didn’t quite fit in!!!! Would have been nice to have a larger TV in the lounge, maybe even a smart one. The surrounding area is lovely, great for walking and cycling or just meandering the shops and parks of Shrewsbury or Ludlow. I’m sure we’ll be back.

    The owner allowed us access to the grounds of their farmhouse which extend to 10 acres of natural garden and 100 acres of woodland, absolutely delightful and inspiring. It was so tranquil with only the sounds of the farm animals including a peacock family! Would go back in a heartbeat.

  • "We felt that the dish washer was superfluous for just two of us: whereas a washing machine would have been handy."

    The situation was superb and a map of the area was unfortunately missing, or rather hanging on the wall which is not exactly the right format for walking. There was a vast array of tourist information leaflets which was commendable, but nothing to highlight the wonderful walks near to the cottage. Compared to other organisations this was good value for money and we knew that the owner was always available in case of problems. The issues we mentioned are minor since we consider this the best of the many holiday cottages we have rented over the years. I feel impelled to mention that the signposting .of footpaths in the area is appalling and caused us considerable problems, though we appreciate that it is nothing to do with you or the owners of the cottage. However as a major player in the tourist market you might be able to influence the local authorities concerned.

    The surroundings are stunning, as is the local area generally. The private gardens to which occupants of the cottages had access were tranquil and inviting. The owners were most welcoming, and were happy to allow us to see their animals, of which there were many. We would certainly return.
