  • "Lovely cottage with plenty of room for 6 adults and 2 dogs, very well equipped and comfortable."

    Only slight negatives were the broken gatepost that urgently needs replacing (smaller dog got through the gap) and the foliage around the door into the garden needs trimming back.

  • "We have stayed here before and that’s why we returned, the cottage is comfortable and has everything you need for an enjoyable stay, very peaceful location and only a short drive to shops and pubs and not too far from Shrewsbury with great shops and eating places."

    We noticed that the gate was broken which was a bit of an issue with 2 dogs as the garden was not secure but thankfully we had no escapees. The owners were there for a day during our stay and Jamie is very friendly and did all he could to make sure we had all we needed for our stay, we also met Mabel their very friendly spaniel but sadly did not see the horse on this occasion. Would definitely recommend for a relaxing stay on beautiful surroundings in a comfortable cottage

    Kitchen stocked with everything needed to be able to cook proper meals and fresh milk and eggs left was a nice touch. Lovely quiet location with footpaths nearby and open green space whilst only a short drive to get necessities. My only drawback being that my small JRT would have been able to get through some gaps in the hedge surrounding the garden however only a slight inconvenience and would not stop me from returning.

    Pleasant outdoor seating area for enjoying a drink in the evenings. Would have been 5 stars but we asked Sykes for a property with a local pub and the nearest one was over 3 miles away. Not the owner’s fault but still a slight disappointment.

    The owners were very friendly and helpful in allowing us to check in early which we greatly appreciated. The Cottage itself was situated in a quiet location and is lovely and spacious , it’s much bigger than it appears on photos. It is well equipped with everything you could need and is finished to a very good standard. The beds were comfortable and the downstairs bedroom is great for people with mobility problems. The wifi was good too which is very important to our nearly teenaged daughter. Most places are easily accessible via the A5. We had a great stay and are looking forward to returning in future. Thank you again!

  • "Wonderful property in a fantastic location."

    Multiple fantastic countryside walks from the door (which our dog appreciated) but close by to many attractions e.g Shrewsbury, Chirk Castle, British Ironworks Centre, to name a few. Property owners were extremely helpful, friendly, and quick to respond to any onsite queries. We chose this property as it has a ground-floor bedroom, with en suite, suitable for one of our party with mobility issues. She was very pleased with the standard of accommodation. There isn't anything not to love about the property -.we hope to return in the future.

  • "The cottage was exceptionally well equipped."

    All the cooking utensils and dishes you could ever need were available, plus some basic condiments and tea/coffee etc which was really helpful on the first day. There were also a few toilet rolls provided. We were able to let our dogs use the garden, and it was relatively dog proof, they certainly couldn’t get to the road which gave us peace of mind. The cottage is in a tiny village without shops or a pub, so you do need to drive anywhere you want to go. There was a useful information pack in the house, plus local ordinance survey maps. Some of the information may need updating slightly though. As there’s only one key for the house, it would have been useful to have a key safe outside, to leave the key for others in case you were going out separately. We had a lovely stay at this cottage and would definitely return!

  • "Lovely cottage in a good situation."

    The kitchen/diner and living room are spacious and well provisioned The wetroom in the downstairs bedroom was wonderful. But it was a bit of a stretch to call it a six bed holiday cottage. The 6th bed is a pull out trundle and takes up nearly all the floor space in the 3rd bedroom. Also there is a serious trip hazard in the main bedroom (a beam across the floor).

Little added extras like eggs, milk and magazines were lovely as well. Other than a few other houses, farms and a church, there's nothing else close by which made it so peaceful and tranquil. There is a field a stone's throw away which the kids loved going to as it had football goals! And the dog loved being let loose too! There were plenty of places to visit nearby as well.

The property

The approach to the cottage has lovely views towards the Breidden Hills and Rodney's Pillar, whilst the scenic Severn Way Walk runs beside the cottage.

Wonderful walking can be enjoyed in the Shropshire Hills, and National Cycle Network route 81 is just 50 yards from the cottage.

Within easy reach are Shrewsbury, Church Stretton, Ludlow, the Ironbridge Gorge, Stokesay Castle and Acton Scott Historic Working Farm.
