  • "My husband and I and our two dogs have just enjoyed a wonderful stay here for Christmas."

    After a very busy year for us both we really wanted somewhere we could stay and just relax and this property was perfect. The owners provided us with a Christmas tree and decorations which made it feel very festive and cosy. Our two dogs absolutely loved the secure little garden with grass for them to run around and be safe and while we didn’t use the hot tub, the owners were ready to heat it up had we asked and were very accommodating. There is everything in the property provided that you could possibly need and we cooked a wonderful Christmas dinner with all the amenities at hand. Overall a wonderful place, amazing views and near enough to local towns to visit such as Ludlow and Shrewsbury.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback, we are delighted that you enjoyed your Christmas in the cottage. It was lovely to meet you all. Theresa Property Owner

    Clean throughout and kitchen is well equipped. I can't think of anything that was missing. Even the dogs are looked after with a blanket and towel provided.

  • "Lovely property, stunning views and great to be able to be so close to the horses."

    Bed comfy and other facilities great. Didn't use hot tub. Steps to garden not steep, however they do not lead directly into garden, gate onto garden in at bottom on the stairs so our youngest dog would try to run off ! Once in the garden though it's fully enclosed and great for dogs and children. Kitchen could of been a little cleaner and under sofa cushions too but otherwise was clean and tidy and we had a really nice weekend.

    Thank you for your comments. We have now provided a fence at the bottom of the steps. I am sorry that you found the cleaning lacking.we do take great care. Theresa Property Owner

    The bed was so comfy and we had the best nights sleep ever , we had the most incredible views of the horses from our window which was lovely , especially to see the foul aswell. Every detail was thought about including a spare toothbrush as I’d forgotten mine! The hot tub was incredible and Pete got it going for us and was perfect for when we came back from dinner. We ate mostly at bishops castle hotel which was incredible and i can highly recommend it, we also ate at the three turns (you will need to try their onion rings). We went on lovely walks to the discovery centre and they had many routes to go on, we went to carding hill valley aswell for a lovely 4 mile walk with the dog, very steep hills so defo recommend walking boots. Overall Teresa and Pete were great hosts and we will definitely be returning, such a positive experience and could not fault them at all!

    Really friendly and helpful on arrival. We felt the space worked really well and managed a few home cooked meals in a very well equipped kitchen. Not the easiest with dogs given the stairs which due to rain and snow were wet and slippy. Super warm and cosy.

  • "What a gem!"

    We are a reasonably fit couple with an older dog. It is all upstairs. We were welcomed to 'the stable' By a very friendly Pete and Theresa. They are perfect hosts. The property was very clean and comfortable and in a very pleasant situation within the farm. It is taken as a given that visitors are respectful and have commonsense so does not have the usual overwhelming extensive list of do's and don'ts. It was quiet and restful. We only had a short break and found the surrounding area absolutely stunning and within easy reach. It has given us the much needed boost and break to our busy working days. Many thanks we highly recommend and would happily return.

    Thank you so much Lisa, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay, it was lovely to meet you all. Hope to see you again in the future. Theresa and Pete Property Owner
