  • "Beautiful cottage in lovely peaceful village."

    Owner Rita and her lovely little dog made us feel at home, there if we needed anything but also aware of letting us get on with our holiday. Our dog Bert loved the garden and the nice big windows to look out of. Comfortable furniture, well equipped kitchen with good quality crockery and pans, cake and eggs with milk ready on arrival for us. I am sure this will be a success as it’s just an ideal place to stay. 2 pubs within 15 mins walk, great food and hospitality at the Inn on the green. ( book for Sunday lunch) dogs allowed in bar area, plenty of room. We will definitely be back and have already recommended it to friends. Thank you Tony Claire and Bert

    Thank you for your lovely comments. It's always satisfying to know that visitors have had a good time. The local pubs are indeed dog friendly and reasonably priced. I look forward to your return one day. Kind regards, Rita. Property Owner

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Walkmill and Rita did all she could to make us feel at home and make the most of our stay."

    It is a cosy cottage in beautiful Shropshire countryside and we were blest with gorgeous weather. An excellent base for exploring this quiet and interesting area.

  • "A lovely, homely and comfortable barn conversion set in an extensive 'wilding' garden with a babbling brook."

    We and our dog were very warmly welcomed and enjoyed the cake, treats and the bowl of eggs for breakfast. We would recommend The Bog, a few miles away, for walks and refreshments. The Shropshire landscape is as stunning as described by Hausman, " those blue remembered hills", although the drive over the Long Mynd is not for the faint-hearted!

  • "The Barn is a lovely space in a beautiful setting, very peaceful and surrounded by nature."

    Very well decorated with lovely finishing touches, very comfortable settee and bed, garden views from 2 sides and courtyard view the other. Upstairs area good for yoga! Kitchen very well equipped (loved the serving dishes!) but smaller that it looks on photos. Easily accessible, quick to visit places of interest and towns eg Stokesay Castle and Church Stretton. Well stocked shop 10 mins walk and 2 pubs same distance. Walks from doorstep, great access to Long Mynd and main walking routes. Property adjoins owners house which was not mentioned on listing - very useful when we needed to borrow something (!) and owners were very discreet but we did notice conversation through the adjoining door in the kitchen from time to time (no doubt they could hear us too)

  • "Walkmill Barn exceeded our expectations."

    A warm, comfortable and welcoming cottage that is perfectly situated for long walks along the Long Mynd and surrounding hills. The fresh farm eggs were a daily treat, and Rita (our hostess) provided us with a lovely homemade cake upon our arrival. Nothing was too much trouble for Rita, she made sure that we had everything we needed for a perfect stay. We highly recommend Walkmill Barn to anyone who wants a quiet and cosy few days away. Certainly one of the best cottage holidays we have had with Sykes. We shall return!
