  • "We had a fabulous week at this lovely log cabin and thoroughly enjoyed having the place to ourselves where we could enjoy the peace and quiet and stunning views."

    We were unlucky with the weather but it didn’t stop us getting out and about to enjoy Shropshire. The cabin was spotlessly clean and very comfortable with everything we needed in the kitchen. It was good to have a full size fridge and freezer too. Sally-Anne was only a phone call away if we needed anything which we didn’t as she had thought of everything. The only thing that might need improving were the showers which were rather weak but it didn’t diminish our enjoyment at this property. Would highly recommend it! Thank you for a super stay.

    Thank you both soo much for your wonderful feedback… I’m only sorry I couldn’t have change the weather for you !!.. I have just spoken to my plumber to see if he can improve the showers… He’s on the case… Many thanks Property Owner

    Everything you could wish for - clean, good quality everything, hand soap provided, washing up liquid provided, all towels and bed linen smell divine. Well appointed and in tip top condition. Everything you could possibly need whilst on holiday a real home from home. Veranda is a great place to sit whatever the weather. The host is lovely and on hand immediately if required. Extremely helpful. Will be back soon we can’t wait.

  • "Can’t believe we found such a great place to stay at such short notice in mid summer."

    Very well equipped accommodation. Super comfy bed, we did struggle to wake in morning. So relaxed. Great space outdoors for our dogs too. Owner was extremely helpful and prompt to help when we contacted her.

    This didn't cause us a problem but be aware if you have Houdini dogs

  • "My dog refused to come home!"

    Cedar Log Cabin is doggy heaven. As we had glorious weather the doors to the cottage were normally open and the dogs loved the freedom. My friend and I instantly felt chilled and relaxed and found the views stunning. The cabin is well equipped and there are are a number of small luxuries like dressing gowns. Sally-Anne, the owner is friendly and went out of her way to help with issues like getting our online food order delivered to the right place.

    It was a pleasure to meet Sally-Ann who was very helpful. Not far to walk down to the canal towpath which provided easy no navigation walking. Many thanks and hope to visit again. Rob & Julie

  • "We had the best break you could have ever wished for."

    The cabin was just perfect for both us and our two dogs. Having the paddock exclusively was a key factor to having no worries about our dogs security. We loved it and shall definitely be coming back.

  • "We had a fabulous week's holiday."

    With 5 acres of green grass field infront was just so peaceful. Bailey our dog loved it too. Everything you need is there. If you want peace and quite this is the holiday for you. Loads of lovely walks nearby. Aqueducts are a must. Chester and Shrewsbury great for walks and shopping. Enjoy!

  • "Overall the log cabin was great."

    The facilities were as advertised. User manuals for the cooker in particular would be useful as we had never used that type of electric hob before. In the end we used the internet to give us the basics and it worked fine afterwards. We travelled with a 96 year old and some sort of plastic chair that could be put in the bath / shower to allow use of the shower might be worth considering. We loved the position and access to the field which was great for the dogs. Loved the stay and the county of Shropshire and will be back in the future.

    I would have given straight 5s however I had to remove a previous person's hair from the shower drain which somewhat put me off.

Park up in one of two off-road parking spaces, before unloading your bags and stepping into your new home-from-home.

Settle down at the dining table where you can savour a delicious meal and discuss plans for the days ahead.

If the weather is nice, fire up the barbecue and dine alfresco out on your own private terrace, followed by a refreshing walk around the five-acre paddock.

As the evening cools, retire to the plush leather sofa and snuggle up in front of your favourite film, courtesy of the TV with DVD player.

After a day of exploring, soothe tired muscles with an indulgent soak in the double-ended bath, before popping on your pyjamas and catching you rest in one of two well-presented bedrooms, a king-size with TV, DVD player and en-suite shower room and a double with TV and DVD player.

Kick-start your day with a revitalising shower, followed by a steaming cup of coffee before setting out for the day.

Head over to the town of Ellesmere, where you will find a delightful selection of amenities, including pubs and restaurants where you can grab a bite to eat on those evenings where you don’t feel like cooking, well-stocked supermarkets for picking up your favourite ingredients to impress your guests with fine cuisine and the picturesque Ellesmere Wharf where you can watch the boats and the world go by.
