  • "The Stables cottage was perfect for our needs."

    Very well equipped. Comfortable and well located for exploring the area. The owner was very welcoming and friendly. He was happy to let us go onto the farm and see the newborn lambs which the children loved.

  • "The Stables were absolutely amazing, comfort, cleanliness, hosts a delight."

    It would be appreciated if a handrail could be installed in the shower for those like myself are a little unsteady on our legs, but otherwise everything was perfect and the dogs loved the enclosed garden and field to run around in. Many thanks from Jennifer (mum) Julian (son) and eight paws of Rosie and Kenya our two dogs.

  • "This was our third stay at The Stables, and, we will be booking for next year."

    We all (including our two German Shepherd dogs) love the space and comfort of the cottage, the very secure garden (big enough to allow ball play) and the friendliness , and helpfulness of the owners. It’s location is calm and peaceful with lots of good walks, yet it’s not too far away from centres of interest like Ludlow, or if you want a drive, it’s lovely countryside to such as Much Wenlock. Highly recommended, highly delighted.

    The garden is safe and secure and it was great to walk the dog, off the lead, right from the front door and over the nearby fields. The owners were lovely and very approachable. This property has plenty of space and is very quiet, perfect for a relaxing break.

    It is very spacious, comfortable and peaceful. The 2 gardens are safe for children and dogs, with lots of space. We stayed whilst lambing was going on and the farmer (owner) invited my granddaughter to see the lambs even showing her how to feed the lambs. It’s a real home from home set in spectacular countryside. The owners live next door and are really nice. You won’t regret booking this property

    Good walks from the door. Owner invited us to see his ewes and their new lambs, which we all really enjoyed. Information about recycling bins and what to do with used linen would have been useful, but the owner was on hand to answer any questions. We were very happy with large downstairs shower, but some guests may like to know that there was not a bath, as per description. Thoroughly enjoyable weekend, wish it had been longer.

  • "Lovely place, perfect for us, location spot on."

    Our arrival had been miss placed, so we had to leave and come back later as we couldn't get in and couldn't reach anyone via phone. Lovely owner apologised. I would suggest that the listing on the website needs updated, as shows a bath in the property. It's been replaced with a walk in shower, which whilst a very good shower, it wasn't ideal for using with my youngest with a disability. Fully enclosed garden area very useful should we return with our dog. 2 resident dogs on the farm gorgeous! No instructions regarding rubbish, or used towels and bedding, so we hope we left everything in an acceptable way. One thing we noted was how concealed the entrance to the farm is, even the 'hay for sale' sign was only visible when 'ontop' of the turning......just a thought if owners wanted to increase visibility for sales. Overall, a lovely property, friendly owners and dogs, property warm and inviting. Thank you, we will return.

    The Cottage was well equipped and comfortable, the garden was a bonus being secure and large enough for our two German shepherd puppies, and despite it being a working farm, we were given access to a field for exercise- bonus. The location was central to exploring the Shropshire countryside and local towns and villages. We liked it so much we intend to book for next year.

    The only very minor comment to make is that it's not easy to spot the entrance to Park Farm whilst travelling on the bust A49. I'm afraid I missed it a couple of times and had to turn around and re-traced my steps - but that might just be me.

  • "The garden was particularly helpful with the dogs."

    The owners were very accommodating - they were perfectly happy for us to alter the week we were staying, when my husband's work retracted permission for his original annual leave. There was a stair gate permanently in for the downstairs, which was helpful as it allowed my 2 year old free movement in the ground floor area. The upstairs does have sloping roof areas in a few of the bedrooms, which is difficult if you're tall. There is also a limited amount of cupboard space and no full length wardrobe space (though there is half length). The downstairs bedroom was very big and spacious and has a number of wardrobes, so we hung everything full length of everyone's there. Biscuits were left, which was a nice touch and a few other essentials.
