    “We were the first guests at this wonderful and well equipped property.”

    Anne and Ian have done a superb job on the conversion and it will be a runway success I’m sure. Perfect location to explore the Shropshire Hills. In 30 years of holiday lets this is right up with the best. Not stupidly staycation overpriced either which is to there credit. We will certainly be back and will recommend to our friends. One word would have been sufficient for this review: perfect.
