October 2016 "We had a lovely stay in Rose Cottage. The property was very well equipped and had everything we needed for our stay. It was very peaceful but close enough to the town to get shopping and lots of nice places to visit. There was a very nice park in town to exercise the 2 dogs.

We would recommend this property and would very much like to return in the future."

October 2016 "We (three adults) enjoyed our stay thoroughly! The Parks Cottage was very clean and comfortable, and was furnished and kitted out to a high standard. The views were excellent and our hosts most obliging. The complementary food was great too: bread, eggs and local bacon with even some extra virgin olive oil for our use (really helpful little extras make a big difference)......."

October 2016 "We had a lovely holiday at The Granary, thanks for asking. The owners have thought of everything and made this a real home away from home. We received a very welcome from Jan on our arrival and there was tea and cake waiting for us in the kitchen.The Granary is fitted to a very high standard and so spacious, ideal for two people. We were very lucky with the weather and spent a lot of time walking but even one the two days it rained we had no issues staying inside - there is more than enough space and seating both in the living room upstairs as well as downstairs in the kitchen. We will surely visit again."

October 2016 "Pheasant Cottage is lovely. Beautifully presented with all amenities. Spotlessly clean. Sally & Neil are very friendly & helpful. The village is very quiet & peaceful & the cottage has wonderful views of the countryside. We had a very relaxing break & would recommend te cottage to anyone seeking the same."

October 2016 "Another lovely stay at this cosy cottage, owners are extremely helpful and friendly. Very peaceful and scenic surrounding's make for a very enjoyable break." Horsegames Barn

October 2016 "Hi,yes we did enjoy The Lookout, especially the wonderful views and quiet. It was very clean,the family friendly and welcoming,a great woodburner and our bed fantastically comfortable! Directions were v clear too, thankyou."

September 2016 "East Barn has been beautifully renovated to a very high standard. It felt like a home for home with all the creature comforts you could wish for. We like staying outside the cities/towns, when holidaying, as we find it more peaceful and relaxing and Caynham didn't disappoint in that respect. However Ludlow is only a few miles away so it's an easy trip into town whenever you need to. Shropshire is a lovely county with lots to see and do. We will definitely stay at East Barn again when we decide to explore some more."

September 2016 "We had an absolutely wonderful short break in the Old Threshing Barn. The most well equipped accommodation we have ever stayed in (and we have stayed in a lot)! The gardens were superb - Richard and Cary were very friendly and helpful - the dogs and cats were very well behaved - a property in a superb location and only five minutes from Kington where there are excellent butchers and bakers and a choice of supermarkets. We will certainly be back."

September 2016 "My wife and I had a very enjoyable week, the accommodation was fist class, somewhat more remote than we anticipated but beautiful and peaceful never the less. We would definitely recommend "Mollys Barn" for a chill out break."

August 2016: From a letter of thanks to someone who booked the Old Stables: 'J is still banging on about the dolls house (Wendy House) and when I ask what she will tell them at nursery about her holiday about the whole week, it is she played in the dolls house.  Good choice of property.'

September 2016 "Longbarn was great, lovely cottage and lovely host. The area is delightful and we would recommend both the area and the cottage to all and sundry."

September 2016 "We had a lovely week thank you, Jenny was extremely friendly and helpful going out of her way to make sure we had what we needed. Honeysuckle was very comfortable, clean and well equipped and of course the view is stunning........ "

August 2016 "We had a fabulous time at Coachmans Cottage. Everything about the cottage and its surroundings were amazing. The cottage is equipped and decorated to the highest standard and we couldn’t find fault at all. The owner was there to greet us when we arrived; more than three hours later than planned, thanks to traffic congestion and roadworks! What a fantastic place to spend a holiday. The weather was very kind to us and we were able to sit on the patio every evening to eat our meals, listening to the swallows in the barn and later, as darkness fell, the owls. Anyone who wants a holiday away from it all couldn’t do any better than Coachmans Cottage. We cannot recommend it highly enough."

August 2016 "We had an excellent holiday at The Barn and were very happy with the accommodation and contact with the owners............"

August 2016 "Just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had at the Artist’s Retreat. Judy and Stephen were wonderful hosts and the property itself is amazing. My wife absolutely fell in love with the floor to ceiling picture window looking from the bedroom into the woods. It was so calming to see all the birds come to the feeders hanging from the tree (and our dog loved it too!). The tranquility of the area is great, and we were fortunate enough to talk to Stephen about his artwork and thinking process.
It’s rare to get the luxury of chatting with one of the UK’s most significant sculptors! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will be coming back again as soon as we can! Many thanks for a great break."
