We had a wonderful holiday. The cottage is very cosy. The hot tub was great especially after a long walk during the day. There are some lovely walks nearby; our nicest was up Carding Mill Valley and up onto The Long Mynd. Croft Castle and Powis Castle are very interesting NT properties fairly close.

Perfect little cottage for a relaxing break in the country side! We took the dog with us and the cottage had a bed and bowls for her which was a nice touch. We cooked in the cottage and the kitchen was well equipped with its everything we needed. There were lots of nice little villages to explore and public footpaths stretching for miles. Even on aRead more very rainy January evening we spent hours in the hot tub with the umbrella up, it was bliss. We've already agreed we will be back soon! Hide

Super cottage with all the facilities. The hot tub was brilliant & was a great way of relaxing at the end of the day. The property is on a busy narrow B road which isnt safe to walk on, so driving is a must. Youll need to carefully reverse into the driveway to unload and reload. You can ask to park around the corner in the caravan park for the restRead more of the time. The property is safely enclosed which was fine for our small dog to roam around off-lead. Hide

Good central location with lots to do within a 25 mile radius. Hot tub was really nice. Cottage is located next to a road where the traffic is moving quickly and getting out or back into the drive could be an issue for some.

A lovely cottage with great facilities, the hot tub was a great addition! The size of the cottage for two people and a dog was just right. The kitchen had enough equipment to cook a variety of different dishes. We would definitely recommend a stay here for a quiet getaway!
