  • "The Carriage House is a beautifully presented, tastefully furnished cottage in a central yet quiet part of Shrewsbury."

    We have stayed severally times and we look forward to returning whenever we can. Having stayed in dozens of holiday cottages over many years, I can say without reservation that the Carriage House is far and away the nicest. Many thanks to our hosts for our welcome and making our stays so special.

  • "We have recently returned from a wonderful stay in The Carriage House."

    Our first visit was in 2019 and since then we have stayed many times and it has never failed to impress. It has everything anyone could wish for including its own parking space directly in front of the property, almost unheard of in Shrewsbury. Communication with Karen was straightforward and instant and we were delighted with the basket of goodies that were nicely displayed on our arrival. Once again thank you so much, Karen. The Carriage House is the best holiday accommodation we have stayed in and we shall definitely be returning to what we now call “our second home”!

  • "Second visit for us."

    Absolutely immaculate presentation in every aspect, the owner once again was helpful to let us in early and that helped with getting settled quickly. Being in the centre of town with all its facilities and bespoke parking space was brilliant. The welcome hamper was wonderful and very much appreciated, everything was included to get you started and carefully chosen, also the coffee/chocolate pods were used throughout our stay. All in all, a classy home that hopefully will continue!

  • "This was a return visit to the Carriage House for us this year, as we enjoyed our stay there so much in May."

    The position in the town centre is excellent, especially since there is a parking space directly in front. The facilities are excellent and everything has been very carefully thought out. The beds are comfortable and the whole place has a cosy feel. Despite the town centre position, it is in a very quiet spot, There is plenty to do and see, both in this beautiful town and the surrounding area.

    Beautiful cottage right in the centre of Shrewsbury, 3 mins walk from the Market Hall. Parking is right outside. Everything completed to a high spec, and with everything you might need. Very clean with comfortable beds. Being in the city centre there can be a little noise (recycling from the local businesses in the morning for example), but the windows are very effective for soundproofing, and we had no problems with nightlife noises. Thank you for a lovely stay!

    It was spotlessly clean. The beds were comfortable and beautiful décor throughout. A lot of thought had gone into making it a lovely holiday experience. . The two bathrooms were a bonus with a powerful shower in one. It was near the edge of town but set at the back of a lane and car park near all walks. It wasn't noisy at night. No need to use the car. Lovely little cobbled streets to explore. Resident's parking right outside the door was so easy for unloading our luggage. Karen the owner was very helpful as we did get a bit lost finding the accommodation. On arrival there was a nice welcome pack of fresh baked bread and scones. We enjoy our stay and would return in the future.

The Carriage House was clean, beds comfortable and has everything for a very good time. I would certainly put this property in my top three thank you Karen. Now the rating of a three for Sykes is due to the fact l have had to cancel a September trip away due to unforeseen circumstances. They have insisted my full deposit and insurance cannot be refunded, l did expect to pay a booking fee but no. This is very disappointing as a long and loyal customer l have unfortunately decided with much regret l will no longer be using Sykes Cottages.

    Which meant that on the Friday night the noise from the extremely loud music disturbed us until about 2am, even though we had our windows closed. So, instead of feeling rested for our weekend away, we were all tired! The noisy location should be mentioned on your website. The accommodation was otherwise perfect.

    It was beautifully clean, warm and comfortable for our New Year break with lots of thoughtful extras including the welcome pack and a really excellent selection of guides and walk books.

    It contained everything you could need and the welcome basket and in particular, the Christmas decorations were a lovely warm touch. An outstanding holiday stay. Its location in the heart of Shrewsbury is fantastic, (but can be a bit difficult to navigate the streets into the cottage).

  • "This house has everything that we value most in city break accommodation."

    It is absolutely central, it has a parking space and decent WiFi, it is bright, modern, spacious and very well equipped, no pets or smoking are allowed and most of all it was spotlessly clean. There was a nice hamper of wine, milk, fresh bread and scones waiting for us, plenty of towels and bathroom toiletries and high quality bedding. If, after finding it on Street View, you have qualms about the location off the main car park, don’t have, it is not a problem. Very highly recommended.

    It also has the advantage of a parking space, saving ££'s in parking charges. The property is well maintained, clean, modern and well looked after too. There were some nice touches as well - some welcome food a bottle of wine and bathroom accessories too. The main bedroom had an en-suit and the twin (situated upstairs) had a downstairs bathroom. The kitchen/diner was just right having everything we needed for the week. Shrewsbury has most things you could want for a weeks holiday. I would re-visit both The Carriage House and Shrewsbury again.

    The house was beautifully restored and decorated with quality furnishings, the kitchen was fully equipped for our needs, and the beds and linens were luxurious. I had thought the location might be noisy, as it’s in the city center, but it was absolutely silent at night. What surprised me the most, because these things weren’t visible in the photos or described in the amenities, were the touches that Karen, the host, added to the house. She had stocked the kitchen with a cornucopia of treats, in each bathroom there were travel sized toiletries, in each bedroom there were ear plugs and eye shades, and there was even a basket of slipper-socks to make sure our feet were toasty! I can’t thank Karen enough for her generosity and hospitality.
