  1. The property was very quaint and extremely close to the fishing lakes, which pleased my husband to know end. The couple who owned the cottages were very friendly and helpful, the recommended the Royal Oak to eat out, which my husband and I found extremely good. July 2010.
  2. Excellent situation between Long Mynd and Wenlock Edge, with good walking directly from property. Church Stretton v. convenient for basics. July 2010.
  3. Very clean. Well stocked with kitchen requirements. But a little cold in the November wind and rains. Nov 2009.
  4. Cosy, very quiet, comfortable. Oct 2009.
  5. The most comfortable bed i have ever slept in. A warm and comfortable cottage. Friendly welcome. Brilliant fishing. Amazing coutryside and scenery. i would go back again. June 2009.
  6. Spotlessly clean inside. Very comfortable bed and sofa. Plenty of storage and parking space. Owners very friendly and helpful. Front courtyard needed weeding and cleaning. Should be a warning about sleeping policemen on drive. Mention of the high visibility posts at the start of the entrance would be useful. Sept 2009.
  7. I can say that the cottage I stayed in was very cosy,well-equipped, in a tranquil setting and the owners very helpful and friendly. I would go there again. Feb 2008.
  8. The area around the property was peaceful and tranquil. Access to the property was easy and the local amenities i.e. (shops and restaurants) were a short distance away. An ideal property for a couple to spend time chilling out. March 2007.
  9. Simple yet very comfortable and cosy accommodation in a lovely setting. Excellent walking right from the doorstep and also well placed for exploring Church Stretton area with wonderful walking in Long Mynd and surrounding hills and valleys. Interesting small market towns like Bishops Castle and Much Wenlock within easy driving distance. March 2007.
  10. The cottage has character, with its exposed beams, and is warm, cosy and peaceful. the owners ( who’s’ property is adjacent) are always pleasant and helpful. I went on my own and really enjoyed my stay. Feb 2006.
