  • "Excellent accommodation."

    Each bedroom had good clean ensuite facilities. Kitchen had excellent electric cooker and 2 dishwashers which are necessary when cooking for up to 12 people. The swimming pool was initially closed for maintenance and we had to ask for the cover to be removed when we wanted to use it.

    Thank you for this lovely feedback. We're delighted you loved the property and hope to welcome you again. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Enjoyable holiday, excellent accommodation, only downside - having teenagers- was the indoor play equipment - ie."

    table tennis table, pool table, gym equipment - was out of action. If hadn't been for swimming pool and outdoor tennis court, and being only residents there, meant that teenagers could use these facilities when they wanted. Otherwise recommend wholeheartedly. Local pub also good facility

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay overall, and we appreciate your comments regarding the indoor play equipment and apologise that it was out of use on this occasion. We hope that this did not leave a lasting impact on your stay and that we can welcome you again one day in the future. Best wishes, HideAways. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely few days in The Park with family to celebrate some big family milestones."

    It was good for everyone to have their own space and there were no fights for the bathroom in the mornings! Plus everyone in our party commented on how comfy the beds are. The local pub was nice and we all enjoyed the walk there and back. We also enjoyed a lovely meal at the Clive Arms which is a short drive from the house. All in all a lovely stay and we would definitely recommend.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. It's fantastic to hear that you enjoyed your time away at The Park! It really is a lovely property, and we hope that we can welcome you back one day in the future for more celebrations! Best wishes, HideAways. Property Owner

  • "Firstly I would like to say that our group of 10 friends enjoyed our holiday here."

    The property was clean and the gardens were well maintained.A lovely view over the Shropshire countryside. Any problems were dealt with as soon as the owners were made aware of them. Suggestions for improving our stay:- Update the information folder and put the instructions for appliances in one place. The covered games area equipment needs attention as some things were unusable eg the table tennis table was not on level ground.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and have passed your suggestions on to the owner. Best wishes, HideAways Property Owner

  • "Ten of us enjoyed a wonderful week at The Park, helped by some lovely autumn weather."

    Superb value for money, great facilities and in a very useful location to walk and enjoy the scenery and nature of the area. Also found some good pubs to dine in the evenings - special mention to The Lion in Leintwardine and The Plough in Wistanstow, both excellent. Thanks to the owners of Onibury Cottages for a memorable stay.

    We are glad to hear that your group enjoyed your stay and benefitted from good weather. Thank you for your recommendations for the local pubs; we are pleased that you had delicious meals. We hope to welcome you back again. Best wishes HideAways Property Owner

  • "Had an amazing time as a group of 12 friends."

    The beds are comfy and all the rooms were extremely clean with lovely showers, everything you need in the kitchen, only negative we would mention is the oven, it took an extremely long time to heat up and cook anything so be mindful. The views are amazing and we hope to return in summer so we can use the other facilities. People staying in the other cottages had private helicopters so we all enjoyed watching them.

    Thank you for providing us with your feedback. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back any time in the future. Property Owner

  • "We have just returned from a week at The Park."

    The property suited our needs well (6 couples). The bedrooms were comfortable with great en-suites. Not a huge amount of shelf space but overall adequate. The lounge was big enough for 12 sitting on two settees and two chairs. The kitchen was essentially well equipped with an abundance of good glassware, dishes and pots and pans. 2 dishwashers were a bonus and were well used. Lovely big table and comfortable dining chairs. Big fridge and separate freezer - both great. The oven however left a lot to be desired, took ages to cook anything and if you left food in a dish near the bottom of the over the bottom ended up burnt! The hob was no problem. We used the swimming pool once and were not enticed back. Not a welcoming building and the so pool needed some TLC!! The photos of The Park needed a description with them as there were pictures of the ‘hospitality’ suite and we all thought when originally viewing the property on line that those pictures were part of the property we rented. We had a few issues that needed addressing whilst we were there and these were dealt with efficiently by the Manager Sharon. We loved the location and certainly would recommend The Park for a group of 6 couples. We enjoyed our week there very much.

The property

Craven Arms 2.8 miles.

Enveloped by the rolling Shropshire hills and situated within striking distance of the market towns of Craven Arms and Ludlow, is this stunning, converted barn property, The Park.

This detached, all-ground-floor property is one of three barns that nestles in the grounds of a 2000-acre country estate, where guests have shared access to an indoor swimming pool and tennis courts.

With six well-presented bedrooms, superb facilities and great location, The Park makes a wonderful base for hosting a large friends and family holiday.

Soak up your countryside surroundings before stepping into the barn and being welcomed into the kitchen/diner.

The chef of the group will be delighted to find a quality range of appliances in a contemporary assortment, certain to entice a spot of home-cooking by making the most of the elegant preparation spaces and the double electric oven, gas hob, microwave and two dishwashers, offering a helping hand.

Settle down for dinner at the large dining table and toast to a wonderful holiday before tucking into your dish.

From here, you will find a spacious sitting room, where a plush seating arrangement is awaiting to be sunk into, as you flick on the TV with Freeview and Sky or retreat to the table to host a family games night.

Completing the interior are six bedrooms, all containing their own en-suite bathroom and are all south-facing, so that you can look forward to waking up the stunning rural views each morning.

Choose between a king-size bedroom, a family bedroom with a double bed and a single bed, two doubles and two twins, ensuring a flexible sleeping arrangement to suit the needs of any party make up.

During a balmy afternoon, head out to the large garden, where you can light up the barbecue and enjoy a spot of alfresco dining, or why not challenge a loved one to a game of tennis?
