Guest Reviews

“Very comfortable cottage with everything you need to make it a home from home, located in a quite position ideal for dog lovers. Very well presented and in a delightful location with a huge dog-safe garden. An ideal place for birdwatching.”

Mr Andrews

“The cottage is always spotlessly clean and the cosy welcome you get as you walk through the door gives a calm and peaceful feeling. The large secure garden is surrounded by beautiful countryside and you are only a short walk from the spectacular views of the Shropshire Hills. If you want peace and quiet you will love it here, just as we do!”

Mr Hood

“The owner was really attentive and kind. Lots to see and do in the area and further afield. Local wildlife was great. A nice place to base yourself for a week of exploring. We would definitely be back. It’s quite unique to find such a nice please that allows dogs.” Mr Clanford

“Lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings. Owner very considerate, ringing us before and after our stay to check all was OK. If we decide to visit this area again, and it’s well worth another visit, then we’ll definitely stay in this dog friendly property again.” Miss Ayers
