    One of the most well equipped houses we have stayed in. As other reviewers have said, the farm track /road to the farm is rough, but taken at a sedate pace it was not a problem.

    It provided everything that you could possibly need. It was clean, warm, cosy and delightfully relaxing. Lots of places to visit and lovely pubs to eat at not too far away. We loved the animals and enjoyed a walk around the lake. The garden, shrubs, flowers and trees are lovely. We enjoyed watching a few of the large collection of DVD’s and the amount of books and games available are amazing. It was definitely a place you looked forward to coming back to after a busy day.

    It's a fantastic property and the hosts (Julie and Andrew) were so welcoming and attentive - even going to the effort of telling us when it was a good night to see the sunset or look out for the blood moon or stars! Property was very spacious - more than ample room for us as a family of 6. The children really enjoyed the selection of books, games and DVDs! It was a peaceful base from which to explore a lot of Shropshire. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property

    The cottage was superb, set in beautiful countryside, and we had the warmest of welcomes from our hosts.The accommodation was absolutely lovely, with space, convenience and comfort of the highest order. There was lots to do all within easy reach: Wales, Chester, the potteries, friendly pubs and name but a few! However, the abiding memories are of peace, tranquility and a wonderful night sky..the latter being something to be savoured when used to town living.

  • "The cottage was absolutely beautiful, especially the staircase and the mezzanine area, perfect place to relax and enjoy the gorgeous views."

    We went after lockdown was eased so the owners were understandably shielding, but were still lovely and welcoming despite having to keep a distance. A number of reviewers have mentioned the road leading up to the cottage. We drove a low profile city car who's wheels are mainly rims and very little tyre and we found that yes, there were some bumpy spots here and there, but you'll be fine if you drive slow and careful. And honestly, when you get to the cottage, whatever little bumps you experienced for 5 minutes will be totally worth it. Our kids loved the neighbouring sheep and donkeys, the very free range chickens and geese were such a novelty too and be sure not to miss the amazing sunsets viewable from the paddock. We were lucky to have a clear night and enjoyed the most amazing star studded sky ever without even having to step out. The cottage itself was beautiful, clean and comfortable, well stocked with all the necessary amenities. We had a brilliant week.

    Our hostess, Julie, was attentive just at the right times and is such a lovely person. The house itself was amazing and definitely surpassed what we expected to be a lovely place. It is a fantastic space, inside and out, excellently equipped and beautifully, most comfortably furnished. Although on a farm, there was no disturbance at all and, had we had little ones with us, I understand it would have been possible to see the animals with supervision. We'd visited with our adult children for a time of rest and relaxation and that is what we experienced, spending most of our time in the home. The only hurdle is the slow drive down the last mile of country road, due to road condition but it wouldn't stop us going there again. The effort was well worth it. I highly recommend Lake View Cottage

  • "We had a great time in this beautiful property."

    It is well maintained and has lovely countryside views. There are however a couple of points I would like to raise. The 3 miles from Market Drayton will take 20 minutes to get there. The track to the property certainly feels more than a mile, and to exceed more than 5 miles an hour on it is asking for trouble. It is totally isolated. We walked into Market Drayton across the fields and it is a lovely walk, but you could not do that if you were going out for the evening in nice clothes and shoes. A car is a must. Clearly the owners have spent a lot of money on the property but I would willingly have paid a little more to ensure the occupiers do not have to provide their own toilet rolls, kitchen towel and washing up liquid. All were in short supply. These are only minor niggles and may seem petty to mention, but if the owners were to provide an adequate stock they would be close to having the perfect property.

The property

Market Drayton 3 miles.

A lovely, semi-detached, red brick farmhouse dating back to the 17th century, in a delightful rural setting, just three miles from Market Drayton in Shropshire.

Set in the middle of grazing pastures on the owners’ 50 acre working stock farm, this superb, eco-friendly cottage has been lovingly renovated to offer quality accommodation throughout, with breathtaking views across to the owners’ wildlife lake.

Upon entering you will appreciate the spacious layout, with an open plan living space divided by an impressive central staircase with a half landing splitting the stairs up to the first floor.

The bespoke kitchen is well equipped with all you would expect from such a luxury property, with a farmhouse table providing a fantastic entertaining area for family meals, whilst the sitting room offers a welcoming area to sit in comfy leather sofas and plan the following day’s activities.

The first floor provides a mezzanine seating area with a spacious viewing gallery and Juliet balcony, which offers a full-height gable window from which you can enjoy far-reaching and undisturbed views across the garden and fields to the lake.

The mezzanine level also provides a quiet reading area and a chill-out zone and a second dining area.

The bedrooms are stylishly finished and two offer the benefits of en-suite facilities in addition to the ground floor wet room.

Outside the cottage you will find patio and lawn seating areas with a garden, offering you ample areas to find some peace and tranquillity with a good book.

This location benefits from a lack of light pollution giving plenty of opportunity to star gaze on clear nights or watch wonderful sunsets.

You have access from the pretty lawns onto the fields to the lake, where you can enjoy the numerous waterfowl and birds that stop on migration or nest in the surrounding woodland.

This cottage is a superb touring base for visiting a range of Shropshire market towns, wonderful shopping and restaurants in Shrewsbury and the magnificent countryside of North Wales.

The historic city of Chester and its famous zoo make a great day out.


With many walks from the doorstep, and access onto nearby cycle routes, this stylish cottage is the perfect place for a relaxing break, at any time of year.

This property is also excellent for birdwatching on a private lake.
