  • "We had a lovely weekend at Callow Fold."

    The views from the property were stunning. Well equipped kitchen. Three bedrooms which were perfect for our group of four (one couple and two friends). Great place for touring and taking beautiful walks around the Shropshire countryside. Have to say I fell in love with owners collie. All in all a great place for a weekend break.

  • "We had a wonderfully relaxing stay here - which is just what my mom and I were looking for."

    The setting is beautiful and the owner is lovely. The bonus was his very friendly dog, who appeared quietly outside whenever we did. He gave us unlimited minutes of vigorous exercise, by offering his toy for us to try and wrestle off him (the dog, not the owner) We will definitely be back to this lovely place for some peace and quiet and beauty

  • "What a wonderful find , a beautiful lodge in a beautiful setting ."

    This property is the perfect sanctuary to get away from it all, perfect for walks from the front door and amazing views. Whilst in a secluded setting it is located close to the lovely town of Ludlow , and it’s castle. Lots of other places to explore and visit . The property itself is equipped with everything you need , we could have moved in permanently

  • "We had an absolutely lovely time at Callow Fold."

    It's superbly situated to access everything that Shropshire has to offer whilst still being off the beaten track. Great for walks with our dog, too.

  • "Beautiful cabin, stunning views, adequate kitchen space, clean fresh bedding, out door washing line and pegs, lovely outdoor area for the dog to run and potter, Derek the owner and Jody ( I think her name was) the cleaner, lovely people."

    ..will definitely return. Washing machine broke on our stay and was replaced within 24 hours - the washing line was a must have and we were grateful to have use of it. Loo seat was on its last hinges, but I'm sure Derek will have sorted that already. We did miss a basic kettle - though a good quality water heater was provided. Kitchen cupboards full of goodies - pots pans bags potatoes bowls etc - though a bit chaotic and shoved in

  • "Had a lovely weekend in this charming cabin."

    Surrounded by stunning scenery. If you want a break from the city, this is perfect ,so peaceful. Downside, we felt uncomfortable in the downstairs bedroom ( the double bed ) as has shutters you can see through and no curtains or blinds, so anyone can see into the bedroom. Had to sleep upstairs on two single beds pushed together .

    Fantastic views. Comfortable and cosy wooden Scandinavia style pine accommodation. Deryk welcomed us with fresh flowers and wine on the table and fresh semi skimmed in the fridge. No traffic noise just wild birds. Lovely walks nearby.

  • "We really enjoyed our time at Callow Fold."

    It was fairly easy to locate the property in the dark as you can't miss the 'Callow Cottage' sign by the hedges. The cottage was very clean, comfortable, and the kitchen was well equipped. The gardens and views of the hills are stunning. Derek was very welcoming and we loved playing with the wonderful border collie, Barney. We wish we could have stayed longer!
