  • "It is an outstanding property."

    The decor is beautiful, the kitchen was fitted out with an abundance of crockery and cutlery. My group of friends and I stayed in the Corn House and its annexe with easy access to either property. We loved the shared seating area outside which enabled us to have quality time together. We didn’t use the pool, as we thought that was a little overpriced, but we loved the games rooms with the table tennis and table football. Some of us also used the go carts which was great fun. I really think you thought of everything to make a stay at Corn House a wonderful experience. Many thanks to Sara and her family.

  • "We had a lovely holiday in well equipped very comfortable properties."

    The games room, go karts and of course the animals were a bonus which we enjoyed too. I would have no hesitation in recommending the properties and the area.

  • "Three generations had a fantastic week in this beautifully appointed and well equipped farm property, celebrating 80th birthdays for the oldies."

    We had very disappointing weather so local walks off the roads were impossible with muddy and waterlogged fields (so difficult for the farmer). However there were two excellent games rooms on site: table tennis, pool, darts etc which kept the teenagers occupied and we booked three private sessions in the beautiful pool and gym, pricey but superb. Lots of helpful information from Sara and outings to Ironbridge, Ludlow and Attingham Park. We had taken loads of eggs which was a shame as we could have collected them from the hens

  • "The only issue, which I have already shared with the owner, was the noise disturbance from the kitchen of Corn House through to the bedroom in Turnip House."

    There is a notice in Corn House asking for noise to be kept down but it was impossible to sleep in the Turnip House bedroom as partying next door went on until well after 2am. Otherwise it was a great place to stay for all ages and Sarah was very keen to be of assistance.

  • "We loved the house and had a great time."

    All the facilities had been very carefully thought out and beautifully maintained. One quibble, the garden at the back of The Corn House was very overshadowed by trees. The other houses at the site had lovely light outlooks. Some cutting back of the trees would be good although this might be a naturally happen since they are mainly ash!

    A terrific place to celebrate with extended family. Be aware though, that the pool and gym are a separate business, requiring cash payment per person, per day, which was not so convenient for a large group. On the whole, a wonderful stay, with helpful hosts.

  • "What a wonderful place to celebrate my husbands 70th birthday."

    Ages ranged from 70 down to our youngest granddaughter aged 4. Facilities catered for everyone-the older grandsons/son-in-law really enjoyed the two games rooms But the highlight for us all was the spa room with the magnificent swimming pool which was warm and had piped music ( I even did aqua aerobics for the girls in our party ) We celebrated grandads birthday with Sunday lunch in a lovely pub in Little Stretton - sorry forgotten the name. The staff were amazing and really made it special for him besides being the best roast dinner ever We also bought take away for the Saturday night from Jaipur - the Indian in Church Stretton which was also fabulous and would definitely recommend To say it was a cold week in January is an understatement but we were never once cold. Sara has the heating on low constantly and there was always plenty of hot water for us all to shower Facilities in the kitchen were in abundance and the large round dining room table for us all to sit round was the biggest we’d ever seen Our conclusion was that if we’d had such an enjoyable time in January just think how marvellous it would be for us all to come back in the warmer summer months

    A home from home. Plenty of kitchen equipment to cater for every need. Fantastic facilities in the two games rooms, kept the teenagers entertained. Access to Wi-Fi, very useful as there’s limited phone reception. Access to a beautiful pool and relaxation area (at an additional cost but well worth it) Caters fro large groups, with various combinations of properties. We were a group of 14 and were very comfortable. Owners very friendly and helpful.

    We all had an amazing time and my Mum said it was the best birthday she'd ever had, so you can't ask for more than that! Corn house is truly beautiful. We stayed here the weekend before Christmas 2022. The lovely Christmas decorations added to the cosy atmosphere. The spa is wonderful, though the pool was a bit cold given it was the middle of winter. Very happy we chose to stay here; I have already recommended it to others and would love to stay again in the future.

  • "We had a great stay and loved the the location and the property my only criticism would be that it needs to be made clearer that the pool facility is extra, we only spotted this after booking."

    On reflection I can understand why it is charged as extra but when viewing the photos for the facility it gives the impression that it’s included. A small point in know but as I was treating my family And there was 14 of us it’s an extra I had to budget for. Other than that small point we loved everything about our weekend.

  • "An absolutely amazing property!"

    ! We spent the jubilee weekend in the Corn House and annexe, three generations from one family, ranging from 6 to 75 years old. The house is beautifully furnished, extremely clean and very well presented. The property is set in beautiful countryside and has some excellent walks for the 2 dogs we brought with us! Facilities such as the go karts, the two games rooms and the fantastic pool and gym just added to our enjoyment! Our garden was well equipped with a large bbq, swing ball, a lovely outdoor table and chairs and a built in sandpit for the kids. Our children loved visiting the animals and collecting eggs each day. Sara is a fantastic host and it’s great that she lives on site so that you can ask her questions and advice when necessary. Nothing is too much trouble. We cannot wait to go back again!!!

    Very well equipped for cooking a huge Christmas dinner. Kids had a whale of a time in the games rooms and play area. Pigs were a big hit. Only managed to see the glorious setting once when it stopped raining and the mist cleared, but would love to spend time in the summer. Kids never got bored despite the weather so the adults were able to enjoy the comfort and the log burner in relative peace. Adults quite enjoyed the games rooms and play area too!

I would comment that the Corn House has reached a point where some refurbishment would be advantageous; the obviously newer annex was much better. However, I'm sure the owners must be conscious of this and the observation is not to be regarded as a criticism.
