This beautifully presented cottage is perfectly located for exploring the stunning Shropshire/Herefordshire countryside. Fresh flowers in the kitchen and a bottle of wine in the fridge were a very nice touch. We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking to stay in this area.

This is a lovely cottage: very clean and comfortable. It made a great base for exploring Shropshire / Herefordshire. It is a beautiful area and there are lots of things to see and do.

A lovely cottage about five minutes drive from the historical town of Ludlow with its beautiful castle and an abundance of pubs, restaurants and independent shops. The cottage has everything you need and the garden is perfect for sunny days. Great for dogs too but be aware it is not enclosed. Good access to neighbouring towns and cities and not tooRead more far from the Welsh border. Plenty of interesting places to explore with some stunning walks within easy reach. A car is essential.
