August 2016 We had a lovely stay at The Parks Cottage. It's situation is second to none and it is beautifully furnished with lots of charm and character. Its 'Off Grid' status was really interesting and did not concern us in any way. The owners were very welcoming and it would be a pleasure to return (especially with my 'arty' friends)

August 2016 "I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say how much we enjoyed our stay at The Lanes. The cottage was charming and everything was lovely and clean (no need to wash cutlery and plates before use as sometimes happens!). The location was perfect for days out to local gardens, Ludlow, Hay on Wye...and we enjoyed our meals at the local and friendly community pub in Dilwyn. Also good for an evening stroll. And wonderfully peaceful. Thank you also for the amazingly swift replies from the office regarding key collection. And a further thank you for offering flexible stays when sometimes a whole week is not possible. Brilliant all round! Thank you so much. You are now on my favourites list and we look forward to booking with you again."

August 2016 "Just to say we had a wonderful stay at East Barn, last week. The barn conversion has been completed imaginatively and to a high standard; it provided excellent accommodation for the five of us. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and there were so many thoughtful little touches that made our stay very comfortable and enjoyable. We have been lucky enough to travel extensively in recent years and have stayed in rented accommodation throughout the world, some wonderful and others much less so! East Barn is one of the very best places we have stayed and we would recommend it without reservation. We hope to return in the new year. Thank you for your help with the booking and for drawing our attention to East Barn through your web-site."

August 2016 "Had a wonderful week at The Old Stables. The house was homely , comfortable and very spacious...perfect for more than one family. The grand piano and table-tennis table were the icing on the cake. The views from the lovely garden were breath-taking. A lovely house in a lovely part of the country. We hope to be able to visit again and thank the owners for allowing us to share so many of their personal possessions especially the huge library of books."

August 2016 "We have just returned from a week staying at Rose Cottage. We enjoyed our time in the lovely cottage , a perfect base for exploring the beautiful surrounding area. The cottage was peaceful and well equipped with an enclosed garden perfect for dogs. The information pamphlets and guides in the cottage were really helpful as the area was new to us. Your website was clear and informative and easy to navigate. The booking process was straightforward with quick responses. All in all a good experience! Am hoping that it won't be too long before we can book again."

August 2016  "With heartfelt thanks to Charles for his help and we are delighted to give feedback on our fabulous stay at Sunnybank. George and Penny were amazingly welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. George took time to check we had everything we needed, he showed us all of the safety features and made sure that we were happy and settled. He was on hand to give great tips on the local area and places to visit. What a brilliant holiday - the accommodation was fantastic...nestled in the hillside with spectacular views that you would never tire of waking up to; it was a perfect retreat. It was lovely to meet their gorgeous doggy, Poppy, too.................. Thanks again, we would recommend you and Sunnybank to all and will be back next time we are looking for a family holiday!

August 2016   "We stayed at Honeysuckle last week with our son, daughter in law and grandson. The cottage was superbly equipped throughout and worked well for us and the owners were very helpful and not intrusive at all. It was a relaxing holiday home for us to use with fantastic views!"

August 2016  "We really enjoyed our stay at Sewdley. The cottage was very clean and comfortable, with everything provided that was needed, eg washing up liquid, cloths, some dishwasher tablets, foil, etc. The open plan kitchen /diner was ideal with the separate lounge being cosy and comfy. There was a stair gate to stop the dog going upstairs and a separate boot room, which was also useful for the dog. The surroundings were very peaceful and pretty and there was plenty to do in the area. I would definitely recommend the cottage to others."

August 2016 "We enjoyed our week with you so much. We were sad to leave,there was everything we needed in The Barn. All the best quality bedding crockery toileteries etc and a lovely cake waiting for us. the boys loved the farm. Mary took them with her at feed time a few times. The boys loved the dogs. Would recommend it to anybody. I will give it 10+out of 10"

August 2016 "Truly excellent. A wonderful place to stay, welcoming and attentive hosts who provided that bit extra. Clean, comfortable and luxurious accommodation in beautiful surroundings and the Juke box was a real added bonus. Great value for money and we would love to return." Old Threshing Barn

July 2017 "We were very pleased with Horsegames Barn, it was light and spacious and the layout of the rooms was very convenient. The utility room was very useful and the hosts supplied milk, eggs, tea and coffee as well as some tasty welsh cakes. The kitchen was also very good and well equipped. Bob and Sue were very friendly and helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. The cottage was in lovely surroundings with very little light or noise pollution which made for a relaxing atmosphere.................

Overall an excellent property."

July 2016 "We booked Sorrel Cottage for a weekend in July to do a walk in the nearby area and to go to a Christening in Telford. We were 4 adults and 2 children. the owners were very helpful and friendly pre arrival and throughout the visit. It is a peaceful location, the cottage is well equipped and we borrowed the gas BBQ one evening to use in the courtyard. The boys enjoyed going to see the alpacas and the cats."

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 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........."

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.."
