There is a network of paths in the area for walkers and cyclists and the Long Mynd and Carding Mill Valley are close by.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A comfortable and well-appointed cottage in a beautiful location in the Shropshire hills. The owners were particularly friendly and helpful. Two excellent pubs close by with good food at reasonable prices. Oct 2012.
  2. A charming group of three old buidings are maintained to a high standard by the friendly, relaxed owners Gilly and Brian. They invite guests to wander their four acres along with their very free-range chickens which lay wonderful tasting eggs! July 2012.
  3. Gill And Brine went out of there away to make sure your stay with them was great, with home made cakes and frest eggs when you got there, that went down very well after a long drive. The cottage was like home from home, they have thought of everything that you might need for you stay there. The hens are very firendy, , when you open you door they will come to see you, and if you have kids they can feed them. It was very cosy with the wood burner on a damp evening. The only thing I can say is there are 2 pubs that you can walk to from cottage, it is a shame that you cant take dogs in the pub. May 2012.
  4. Good touring location. Local towns all interesting. High standard of furnishing and bedding. Dog friendly accommodation and in many local pubs. May 2012.
  5. A very comfortable cottage. Owners live on site and are extremely helpful and welcoming. Home baked cake, milk, eggs from owners’ hens and butter on arrival. Would point out that this is not only a non-smoking cottage but a non-smoking site. Beautiful countryside. Local shop and pub third of a mile away. Pub was excellent value and very welcoming. May 2012.
  6. Excellent cottage in quiet beautiful country side. Very well equipped, with extremely comfortable beds.When we arrived we received a home-made delicious cake and some new laid eggs. On a very wet & windy day, our owner brought in a delicious cream tea.Would certainly come again. April 2012.
  7. This a fantastic cottage with everything possible available and included and friendly helpful owners who respect privacy. The surrounding area has some of the best possible countryside, walking and villages. March 2012.
  8. Set in outstanding countryside. This beautiful property is immaculately maintained and cleaned to the highest standard. The hosts, Gilly and Bryan, were wonderfully welcoming and helpful without being at all obtrusive. Tea, milk, home-made cake and fresh eggs (from their hens) were waiting for us upon arrival. One of the best cottage holidays we have ever had! July 2011.
  9. Very friendly owners & a well appointed property. Everything provided for the first night including fresh eggs from the hens that wander around, not to mention scrummy cake, very welcome after a long journey from Scotland! Nice touches include the toiletries & the makings of a pasta meal, along with tea, coffee, butter & milk. Local shop within walking distance provides everything else you would need. The local pub, also within walking distance provides a welcoming atmosphere & good food. Limited menu but seemed freshly cooked. A lovely area to explore particularly when the weather is as good as we had for our week. July 2011.
  10. High expectations were justified. Attention to detail was great and much appreciated. Would not hesitate to recommend. June 2011.
  11. Excellently fitted out cottage. Welcome touches of cake, milk, butter and free range eggs. Owners very welcoming, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. One of the best cottages we have used. June 2011.
  12. Walkmill Lodge is wonderful. We had a superb holiday here, South Shropshire is the most beautiful county I have ever seen and the people so very friendly and welcoming. The property is the best we have every stayed in, it is extremely well equipped, warm (thank goodness!) and ideal for the two of us plus Chester (bichon frise) who could play out in the completely safe back garden. Just as well, as he was terrified of the cockerel. Total wuss!! Welcome coffee cake, home made marmalade and eggs. Superb location - don’t hesitate to try it. May 2011.
  13. It was a charming cottage with everything one could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Made to feel very welcome. Marvellous walking and very good pubs to eat in in the evening. April 2011.
  14. Cottage was finished to a high standard. Oct 2010.
  15. We were surprised by the high standard and presentation of the accommodation, they much exceeded our expectations. We would definitely recommend the Walkmill to others. Aug 2010.
  16. Lovely country cottage style in great, peaceful setting. July 2010.
  17. The photographs do not do justice to Walkmill Lodge, it is very tastefully decorated with charming touches. July 2010.
  18. Excellent standard of fittings and decoration, good quality including bedding and towels. Very attractive to look at inside and out. Web photos could be improved to show the property to its full potential from the outside so that you can see more of its lovely immediate location. July 2010.
  19. Location wonderful, owners lovely, helpful and friendly. June 2010.
  20. En-suite rooms were a big plus. The area was very beautiful. The owner was very friendly and available to answer questions. May 2010.
