  • "Really enjoyed our few days only spoilt by the weather, well equipped cottage with comfortable beds."

  • "The only negative about this place was that it was only available for a week, otherwise we would have spent several weeks here."

    It’s a spacious, well-equipped cottage with good furnishings, fixtures and fittings, comfortable bed, plenty of hot water and good towels. The kitchen is on the small side but has everything that you need and the crockery and cookware was perfectly clean and of good quality. It’s in a lovely quiet off main road location and is on a bus route although there are only a handful of buses each day. We would definitely stay here again. Recommended

  • "Although only short, we had a very pleasant stay at The Coach House."

    The facilities were very comprehensive with everything you would need for an enjoyable holiday including a very comfortable bed! Information about the property and the surrounding services and walks were well detailed and the accommodation was nice and warm and spotlessly clean. About ten minutes walk away was the Burlton Inn, a very friendly (and dog friendly) establishment serving excellent food at reasonable prices. Chris and Sue gave us a friendly reception and were on hand to help with any questions we had. We would certainly recommend The Coach House to anyone seeking a pleasant break in a lovely part of the country.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at the Coach House, it was very comfortable and well equipped with good quality items."

    The house was warm with plenty of hot water. Towels were huge and fluffy and the art work was very attractive. Having a downstairs second toilet was a bonus. The information left suggesting walks and where to park was very useful and we went on three of them successfully.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    The Coach House was perfect for our needs. The decor was lovely and the house was spotless. It was cosy and comfortable with everything we needed. The towels were so soft. We were unable to use the decking outside due to the weather but it would be the perfect place to sit on good days. The property was perfectly situated as a base for touring Shropshire. The owners were very nice and provided a much appreciated welcome pack. Dog bowls and towels were also provided. We would definitely return if holidaying in the area again.

  • "We enjoyed a relaxing stay at this excellently equipped, quiet cottage which has a fully enclosed seating area, specifically for use of the cottage residents."

    Set in a courtyard, neighbouring open countryside, it is a good environment for holidaying with a small dog. Worthy of note are the super beds, large and comfortable, enabling a good night's sleep prior to exploring the local area. The owners were welcoming and accessible if required, but we did not need to trouble them during our stay, as everything was in excellent order and as advertised. Would recommend and definitely would stay at the Coach House at the Gables again.

    Thank you for staying with us and your feedback. We hope to see you again. Regards Chris & Sue Property Owner

The property

The Coach House At The Gables is a beautifully-converted home, resting in the popular village of Burlton, Shropshire.

Surrounded by the undulating countryside stretching across the Welsh Marches and Shropshire countryside, this detached holiday home is simply wonderful.

Just a short drive from the small, popular market town of Ellesmere, it is the perfect centre point to explore the area with tranquil glacial lakes, a canal, a garden, and woodland walks.

Visitors to this town can also enjoy a little boating to take in the stunning canal views, making this holiday cottage an ideal base for families and friends to enjoy a real gem in Shropshire.

Set over two floors, there are two bedrooms and a family shower room, with access to a seating area via steps.

On the ground floor is a well-equipped kitchen with a dining area, leading through to a light and airy sitting room, with a sofa bed; a lovely, inviting property, where you can spend time relaxing or enjoying a huge variety of days out.

Outside, you can sit on the front patio area in the courtyard or relax in your own private seating area.

The area is surrounded by the beautiful Shropshire countryside, with green sloping hills, glacial lakes and an incredible canal network that can be explored on foot.

You are perfectly placed to enjoy any of the six National Trust properties locally, such as Erddig House, Attingham Park or Dudmaston Estate.

Guests can also walk alongside the Llangollen Canal and marvel at the phenomenal feat of engineering as the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct spectacularly spans the River Dee, fed by the equally marvellous Horseshoe Falls in Llangollen, within 25 miles.

You are ideally placed to explore the local Shropshire Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with the area offering various outdoor activities, such as miles of footpaths to explore, boat trips and walks along the canals and numerous cycle paths.

There are also several local golf courses to enjoy, or why not test your nerve and partake in local flying lessons, or a hot air balloon trip?

Just less than 15 miles away are two historic market towns; Shrewsbury, one of England’s finest medieval market towns with a castle, abbey, and parkland, is a lovely place to while away a few hours.

Oswestry, a thriving border town, where Shropshire meets Wales is also well worth a visit or travel a little further to enjoy the striking town of Ludlow, which is known for its gastronomic delights.

All of this awaits at The Coach House At The Gables.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
