    Mr Reynolds

    “The cotttage is part of a working farm which is full of life from the farm animals to the wild ones which both my wife and I enjoy, there were no restrictions and we were allowed to wander arround and enjoy the activities.”

    The owners were very obliging and let us borrow their BBQ which we prefer to cook on so the cooking smells were kept outside in the sitting area. The Swallows nest accommodation is on the ground floor and the Robins Nest accommodation on the first floor which seems a bit odd as normally Robins nest at low level and Swallows at high level but perhaps it is different in Shropshire. However the owners and their family were very friendly including their pet dogs who welcomed us every time we went ...

    The owners were very obliging and let us borrow their BBQ which we prefer to cook on so the cooking smells were kept outside in the sitting area. The Swallows nest accommodation is on the ground floor and the Robins Nest accommodation on the first floor which seems a bit odd as normally Robins nest at low level and Swallows at high level but perhaps it is different in Shropshire. However the owners and their family were very friendly including their pet dogs who welcomed us every time we went into the yard area. The propertity is rustic in appearance externally but internally has a modern layout with seperate shower toilet area, small kitchen, roomy double bedroom and a huge living room. We were lucky with the weather and after our daily trips out visiting National Trust and English heritage buildings we came home and sat in the sunshine on the patio while we had our apperitif and cooked diner. Our neighbours upstairs were chatty and joined us one evening. They had been before and were planning to return in the autumn so they were very happy and so were we. So I would recommend anyone who enjoys farm life and animals it is a must go property. Thank you Caroline, John and family.
