(These are only a selection)

July 2016 We had a lovely week and were very comfortable at the lookout and the owners were very friendly (even the two giant dogs). The giant sized bed was a luxury as was the lovely big shower, the view was lovely and we loved the balcony around the property............................. I hope everyone enjoys this place (The Lookout) as much as we did

July 2016 We really enjoyed our stay – this is a lovely area which we had not explored before. Hopton was very comfortable, very quiet and very well equipped. The owners were friendly and quick to respond when the wifi was not working.

July 2016 The Granary is a beautifully restored property, in a peaceful setting, with every amenity and extremely well equipped. Jan, John and family were very friendly and helpful. Black Hall Farm is ideally situated to escape and relax. We had a wonderful holiday there. Many thanks. It has been a pleasure to do business with you. The location of the cottage was excellent; in a particularly attractive part of Shropshire and even over a Bank Holiday weekend the area was quiet. The cottage had a good selection of walking material and we especially liked and used a local guide book, written by members of 3 local walking groups........." 

June 2016 "Just to say we had a really lovely holiday at Horsegames Barn. The owners were excellent hosts and we will certainly return there. The weather was just fantastic which always helps and we loved Herefordshire."

June 2016 "We have nothing but positive feedback about East Barn......... The cottage was absolutely beautiful. Very well appointed with lots of lovely touches. The owners were extremely helpful. Don't think I've ever slept in a more comfortable bed! You could tell that a lot of thought had gone into the planning and purchasing of fixtures and fittings. Think we'd be hard pressed to find anywhere else that ticked all the boxes."

June 2016 "This is probably the 4th year that we have been back to Presteigne and Honeysuckle. We love the area and we particularly love staying in the cottage."

June 2016   "My family had an absolutely superb holiday at The Old Stables recently and I can't enthuse about it enough. On arrival, the property seemed so vast, with plenty of room for twelve of us (ages ranging from 2 - 61), and the layout of the bedrooms was just right. It was beautifully clean and well-equipped, and the gardens were stunning. Although we enjoyed days and half-days out, it was always such a pleasure to return to the house - the children charging off to the Wendy house, or playing hide and seek. The weather was excellent for the whole week - which really helped of course. Nevertheless, if it hadn't been so good, there was plenty to see in the area, and I don't think we would have got "cabin-fever" as the property was so large.....................

We'd like to extend our thanks to your company, and of course to the owners, for generously allowing us to use their amazing, interesting, comfortable and homely property. We should love to return at some point, but with two more babies on the way, will we all fit in?!"

May 2016 "We had a lovely holiday in the Old Threshing Barn once again."

April 2016 "We had a lovely time at The Coachmans Cottage, the facilities are excellent and the location is stunning , our hosts could not do enough to make our stay as pleasant as possible we look forward in the future to visit again."

April 2016 "We had a wonderful time at Sorrel, thank you! Alan and Jane were amazing. We'd arrived at Ludlow and didn't have a taxi booked, and couldn't get a cab to take us. Alan and Jane were totally unfazed and very kindly gave us a lift.

The cottage was very clean and comfortable. I was really impressed. Alan and Jane are obviously very thoughtful as it had everything we needed, including a fire set up ready to go in the woodburning stove and milk in the fridge. It's a wonderfully quiet and beautiful location. The booking process was simple and everything went smoothly. Thank you for a great stay!"

April 2016 "We very much enjoyed our holiday in Rose Cottage. It was warm, comfortable and well equipped. The surrounding area was very beautiful and offered lots of interesting things to do and see. We would very much like to make another visit before too long."

April 2016  "My wife and I spent three days at Artist's Retreat. It was the perfect place on many accounts. The owner made us feel very welcome. the building has been converted from a blacksmith's forge. Modernisation has ensured comfortable living with a well-equipped kitchen, expansive suite and wood burning stove. However, the most important feature was the floor to ceiling window in the bedroom.

Garden birds love the feeders and we were entranced by the antics of a huge range, including woodpeckers, finches and nuthatch. The battles between the squirrels and the birds was fascinating. Such was the spectacle, that it provided every excuse for a lazy lie in! The narrow roads leading to the property offer a great degree of privacy..... We will be returning"

March 2016 Thanks - we had a lovely few days at Pheasant Cottage......... The accommodation was warm, comfortable and beautifully presented and the surrounding area was very attractive. The local information provided by Neil and Sally was helpful and informative and we found the whole stay very relaxing. We'd certainly recommend it!

February 2016 "Very easy to use website and very straight forward on line booking process.Confirmation of booking, directions to propery and contact name and telephone number sent very quickly.

Prior to booking on line I rang the office and spoke to a very friendly and helpful gentleman who knew the property and its location. He was able to answer my questions, was appreciative of some concerns I had and was able to reassure me that we would not be isolated.Being able to speak to someone who knew the property was very helpful.The website had good photographs of the property and a comprehensive description. An excellent company who I will certainly use again. Thank you.."
