    “What a wonderful cottage!”

    ! My mother and I spent a lovely 4 nights (which was not enough) at Orchid Cottage. The cottage is in beautiful condition and very spacious and couldn’t be more relaxing. The views surrounding it are just stunning and the outdoor area with hot tub is a lovely place to unwind. Kath has been a wonderful host and very friendly and just a phone call away.

    ! My mother and I spent a lovely 4 nights (which was not enough) at Orchid Cottage. The cottage is in beautiful condition and very spacious and couldn’t be more relaxing. The views surrounding it are just stunning and the outdoor area with hot tub is a lovely place to unwind. Kath has been a wonderful host and very friendly and just a phone call away. She was extremely accommodating when I asked if my sister and her children could stay a night (which turned into 2 because they loved it so much). Plus the banana cake waiting for us on arrival was a lovely touch and was truly delicious! Church Stretton is within a 10 minute drive and a lovely quaint town to visit or shop. Overall it was exactly what we were looking for and we enjoyed every minute!
