  • "We had a fantastic stay and have already booked for next year!"

    !! Very comfortable and well looked after, our party (aged between 1 and 97!!) all had a great time! It would be nice to have some garden games available to use for next time. Just some bats and balls, badminton etc. also sone more tea towels and a larger pan / wok. But all in all it was great and we can’t wait to come back.

  • "Great rural location which is so peaceful with very little light pollution."

    Any issues that might arise dealt very quickly by owner and manager of the accommodation.

  • "Well equipped & comfortable cottage."

    Clean, but not spotless given the extended Covid cleaning hours. Dining room had an unusual smell, appreciate it’s an old building and can smell mouldy, we didn’t use the dining room because of it. Hot tub is lovely and checked daily . The garden is beautiful and perfect for little ones. There is a builders yard next door which although wasn’t intrusive noise wise, it was very unsightly and not mentioned in the cottage information. The large refuge bins were overfilled, meaning rubbish was left on the floor beside it, attracting lots of wasps and flies. The information regarding recycling was unclear. There should be more bin space for the amount of cottages on site. That said we had a very relaxing few days. I probably wouldn’t rebook this cottage, mainly because of bedroom layout with toddlers, but it does have a charm, and I can see how other people revisit.

  • "On your original site you stated that the four poster room had an en-suite shower room which made 5 bathroom/shower rooms."

    When we arrived, we could not find a shower room in the four poster room? On speaking to the owner we were told that this room did not have an en-suite? One of the main reasons for booking the farmhouse was the bedroom/bathroom configurations for our family. I am sure I have a print out of the original front page of your site showing that the four poster room has an en-suite? You have since amended the info, I suspect after a phone call or email from the farmhouse owner who was very kind? We did enjoy our week, after not seeing family for over a year, but it was blighted by this. The donkey shed was unusable because of a broken bed so we couldn't really use the shower room as it's at the bottom of the garden, leaving one bathroom and 2 en-suites. Will we book with you again?...not sure? :(

  • "In our party of ten we had four children between the ages of 4 and 10."

    The very large garden provided the opportunity for them to explore their imagination with hide and seek, kickabouts, making camps and generally running around letting off steam.

  • "The Old Farmhouse was a great location for our family group ranging from 75 to 22 months."

    The outside space was excellent and safe for the children to play. The interior was also spacious . Plenty of storage and 3 fridges in the kitchen. Barbecue was excellent as well. The hot tub was a great hit! The location is quite isolated but not far from Craven Arms for shops. Lovely having the alpacas opposite and were enjoyed by all, in spite of the rain! A great week enjoyed by everyone. The cake and bottle of wine appreciated by the adults.

  • "It delivered everything we hoped for and more."

    There were a couple of door latches that were missing but this just added to the old world charm. We had an age range from 7 months to 70 years and all were easily catered for.

    Everything you need to make your holiday special, plenty of seating in the large living room, underfloor heating is not for me but the rest of the group loved it. Lovely comfy beds and clean bedding. Hot Tub was great and a large lawn to play games on, we had mixed weather but it didn't stop us getting out there and enjoying ourselves. Thank You

  • "We enjoyed an annual family get-together in beautiful Shropshire."

    The house was luxurious and we were made very welcome. The dining room, sitting room, kitchen, bedrooms, garden and hot tubs were all great. There was plenty of room for all eleven of us. There is little to improve - perhaps a few larger cooking pots and more cutlery. The games room had obviously been badly treated by previous guests but was being renovated as we left. All in all the owners should be proud of this excellent holiday home. Thank you.

    It was beautifully presented and was extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need. It also has a lovely garden with the hot tub which is a bonus.

In addition we found the owners extremely helpful helping us get to the property in very difficult weather conditions.
