    Very friendly neighbours in the farmhouse - especially the dogs! Gorgeous location on a working farm and the cottage was spacious and comfortable. The directions to the farm were good. We suspect the lack of loo paper on our arrival was an oversight. A couple of teabags would have been nice too. We failed to notice that there is a fridge but no freezer in the description. The dishwasher didn't seem to want to work, but washing up for only 2 was not a problem - once we'd bought more washing - up liquid, and a dish cloth etc. Excellent local supermarket in very nearby Craven Arms. The heating in the house was excellent, and we were able to dry our washing in the spacious airing cupboard ( the dryer with the washing machine did not seem to be effective) For the price, lack of things like loo roll, adequate washing-up liquid etc is not unreasonable. I suppose it's just that we've come to expect it in previous similar holiday cottages we've stayed in, and when you are only away for a week or less then you don't really want to have to buy or bring those sort of things with you; it just feels a bit stingy and unwelcoming on the part of the owners, which is a pity as they were very warm people. I wouldn't mind paying a little extra to be sure basic things like this are provided.

About the location

CRAVEN ARMS

Church Stretton 7 miles; Ludlow 8 miles.

The small market town of Craven Arms, known as The Gateway to the Marches is conveniently located between the beautiful medieval town of Ludlow and delightful Church Stretton. Craven Arms is an ideal base, which nestles close to the scenic Wenlock Edge and Corvedale Valley with fine walks from the town to lovely Stokesay Castle, one of England's finest fortified manors, or the very popular Shropshire Hill Discovery Centre. The town also has some charming and historic houses, including a round house, thought to be a recognisable rest house for pilgrims travelling between Wigmore and Shrewsbury Abbeys and the fascinating 'Museum of Lost Content'. Just two miles away in the village of Wistanstow is the Plough Inn, a good local wood brewery. Church Stretton is close by and nestles between the Long Mynd and Caradoc Hills, renowned for their scenic walks and excellent golf course. The historic towns of Bishop's Castle, Ludlow and Shrewsbury are a short drive away, and offer magnificent castles, riverside walks, wonderful shops, pubs, restaurants, exciting theatres and a variety of festivals. This is a perfect base for touring all of beautiful Shropshire at any time of the year.
