  1. Very peaceful, lovely garden to sit out in, and well situated for visiting the various hills, towns and villages of this beautiful county. Owners friendly and helpful. July 2012.
  2. Fantastic location and great cottage. July 2012.
  3. Excellent cottage. Full of character. Near to 2 pubs within walking distance plus a village shop. Ideal location for walking and visiting many interesting and historical towns, castles and houses. A week wasn’t long enough! May 2012.
  4. The cottage is quiet and peaceful, set in a lovely garden, looking down onto the stream. It is very spacious, yet cosy, and makes a fantastic holiday base - close to walking and interesting market towns, and comfortable and cosy to relax in during the evenings or when the weather is poor. It is a lovely cottage, in a beautiful location. The owners are welcoming and helpful, but not intrusive. We had an absolutely lovely weekend. March 2012.
  5. Great property with all added extras to make your stay more comfortable. First class furnishings and luxury towels, linen, complimentary bathroom accessories and plenty of space to relax and unwind in front of a delightful open fire. Owners went out of their way to make you welcome. Feb 2012.
  6. What a wonderful cottage! We loved the setting and cottage furnishings, and the local shop and pubs were also convenient. The owners were exceptionally helpful and friendly without being intrusive. The area is truly beautiful with outstanding walks along the Long Mynd and to the Stiperstones. The cottage supplied everything as advertised. We heartily recommend Walkmill House to all, and we hope to return soon for another relaxing holiday. June 2011.
