    We had to turn fridge up high as it wasn't keeping things cool.. Overall disappointed as when we stayed 3/4 years ago we found it comfortable but guess as you age you notice there things, we love the cottage itself and the owner Sarah is very helpful.

  • "Lovely cottage in the heart of the Shropshire hills ideal for walking."

    The cottage is attached to the owners house and Sarah was next door should you need anything. Can recommend walks on the Long Mynd, the Stiperstones and Caer Caradoc. Cottage had everything you would need for a comfortable stay with lovely views from the bedroom windows. 2 good pubs in little Stretton a 15 minute walk away and lovely cafes in Church Stretton. Regular bus service from Little Stretton to Ludlow and Shrewsbury both lovely places to visit with loads of history.

  • "The property was only a short way from the village albeit along narrow farm tracks ."

    The owner was very helpful with a problem with a bathroom tap that refused to work and trouble finding the TV channels . The reason for 3 stars was because of builders in attendance for the whole week . It would have been nice to be told in advance .

    Everything we needed for a week away walking, away from it all but within walking distance of 2 lovely pubs which served food. We did find it a bit hot upstairs at night but only because it was windy and we didn’t want to open the windows

  • "Excellent dog friendly cottage."

    Good facilities although bathroom needs shelf removing above basin as it gets in the way of washing as it is too low! Toilet cistern continually running plumber needed. But lovely safe garden, good selection. Of cooking utensils, saucepans and china/cookware. Dishwasher has selection knob missing and we washed by hand. Cottage warm and comfortable bed comfy. We all really enjoyed our stay and our dog loved it! No carpets polished floors so great for dogs!

  • "A lovely cottage in a beautiful setting."

    The cottage was well equipped and the bed was very comfortable. One little niggle, and it is the only one - it would have been useful to have a couple of coat hooks by the back door, as it was we had to put our coats over the back of the dining chairs.

  • "Bathroom only with wash HAND basin."

    Shelf positioned directly above it made it impossible to wash your face or clean your teeth. Hot water/heating controls situated in bedroom wardrobe were constantly audible making sleeping not easy. Kitchen only had a wooden breadboard - no other chopping boards for meat or veg. Never come across a fan oven with all its shelves solid, no wire shelves. Only a tea towel provided in the kitchen - no hand towel. well-presented dining/living space was too full of furniture making moving around the space difficult. Just one clothes hook in entire property (in bedroom) - nowhere to hang outer garments, especially if wet - and no provision for hanging in bathroom.

  • "This cottage is a fantastic base for walkers, given its situation at the foot of the Long Mynd, in a very quiet spot (great for star-gazing) and where parking is otherwise quite limited."

    A good food pub within a ten-minute walk is an added bonus. The cottage itself is warm, spacious (for two guests), well-equipped, with an attentive host and fab views, a comfortable bed and stylish furnishings. This is the second time we have stayed there. The only points it might be good to consider are: all the kitchen units have been painted a gaudy blue since the original photos were taken, which might not be to everyone's taste; the bedroom is roasting hot even with the radiators off - we needed to open the windows all night, even tho frosty outside. Plenty of wood was provided for the woodburner, not just an initial supply - this was generous, and appreciated.

  • "Just had a lovely week at Minton Lane Cottage."

    The weather was awful, but the comfort of the cottage meant that we could close the door, put the fire on, and forget about the wind and rain outside. The cottage is well appointed, and had everything we needed. There is a very comfy king size bed, and lovely views over the fields and hills. It's location meant that walks were within easy reach from the front door. The host was very approachable if you needed anything, but not in your way. The village pubs are within easy walk, and we would definitely look at coming back if we were visiting the area.

    Very comfortable property, everything good quality, owner on hand to sort any problems. Outstanding views, so a very congenial place to 'hang out' in inclement weather. Pubs serving good food within walking distance are an added bonus. Only critical comment - the photos of the living space need to be updated, as all the kitchen cabinets are now painted a vibrant blue instead of cream.
