    We spent a fantastic weekend here with friends to celebrate a special birthday. The cottage is spacious, stylish and well furnished with a perfect mix of modern and traditional; it has everything you could possibly need and the personal touches of flowers, wine and cake made it that extra bit special. We were very appreciative of the basic provisions too, such as loo roll, soap and cooking oil. The cottage was clean, apart from a few cobwebs (in an old converted barn this is inevitable) but we would have benefited from having some sort of kitchen cleaner available in the cupboard in order to aid the cleaning up after food had been cooked, eaten and prepared. The cottages are located in a remote hamlet near to Craven Arms - as a consequence, you have no phone signal, so keeping in touch with loved ones back home is reliant upon the WiFi; unfortunately while we were there we did experience some connection issues. That said, Marianne was extremely helpful and explained what to do if the WiFi signal goes - she was helpful (and friendly) before and during our stay. We didn't move our cars throughout the weekend and instead enjoyed the various walks that are easily accessed from the complex, thus making the most of the stunning scenery. The only thing to be aware of is that the cottages are all adjacent to eachother in a small complex, and whilst the back garden is fenced off in this cottage (resulting in Troopers Barn enjoying privacy where the hot tub is) other cottages (and hot tubs) are overlooked, so if you want to experience complete privacy this is not the place for you. Also, we found that the curfew of 10pm for the hot tub a little inconvenient - other places we have stayed as a group, due to being private, have had no time restrictions with hot tub use. If you did want to explore further then there are plenty of places easily accessible by car (Ludlow and Ironbridge for example), but as this is an area we are very familiar with, we chose to 'stay put'. I would definitely recommend a stay here.
