There is nothing I can fault about this property. It is in beautiful condition with many thoughtful touches. The gardens are lovely and the sense of history is everywhere; it is impossible to tell what century you are in when you look out of any of the windows. The owners warmth and genuine manner is terrific and made the whole vacation even more special.
Ms Winters

This is the best holiday cottage I have ever stayed in. It was spotless, beautifully furnished, and in a stunning location.
Mrs Pye

We have stayed at some fine cottages, but this topped the lot! It had everything you could imagine. The cottage was the right amount of cosy but still spacious. It was beautifully decorated to feel rustic and authentic with lots of antiques and character and yet without being old and dated. In the kitchen, drawers were filled with many extras, all the conveniences of home, which so many places lack. The grounds are beautiful, many strolls and more adventurous hikes on the doorstep. Plenty of attractions to keep you busy, but you will find it hard to tear yourself away from the property. The icing on the cake though are the owners. You can see that they have taken a lot of time and care to make everything perfect. We do a lot of research picking the right cottage for a lovely stay away, this one is something really special.
Mrs Mould

We had a warm and friendly welcome. The overall quality of the property was outstanding. It was absolutely faultless!
Mr Rice
February 2016
This is a great cottage, in a wonderful location, set in the very nice grounds of Meeson Hall. Our welcome was great, the owners are very welcoming and happy to help answering any questions and offering advice on things to do in the area. The cottage itself is warm (the log fire was lit for our arrival) cosy, clean and very well presented. We highly recommend this cottage to relax, get away from it all in a tranquil comfortable location that's in a good location to access Shrewsbury, Lornbridge and other interesting sites such as Stokesay Castle or Ludlow markets.
Mrs Long
March 2016
A fantastic cottage, like waking up in your own well appointed piece of history. The owners are brilliant hosts, their enthusiasm for their house and the area adds a whole new dimension to the holiday - attentive but not intrusive. If you can find any availability in the already booking up calendar - go!
Mrs Terry
July 2016
The cottage was historically interesting. The area was peaceful and the owners were very welcoming, informative and friendly, but not intrusive.
Mrs Valletta
February 2016
The building is gorgeous, old and full of character, totally refurbished to a high standard and modernised where it matters. The setting is very private with off road parking and is very relaxing. It felt like our home whilst we were there. It was cosy and warm and wood burner was great. The owners are really lovely people. We love it here, this was our second visit.
Mr Nelson
June 2016
A lovely restored cottage in a really peaceful setting.
Mr Daniels
April 2016
The cottage is very welcoming and full of character, with good size rooms and a very relaxed feel. It was absolutely spotless with everything you needed to cater for yourself while you are on holiday. The owners are so helpful and on hand if you need anything, we were made to feel very welcome. We especially liked having a walk in wardrobe in the bedroom with room to store cases and bags. It makes a wonderful base for a holiday with freedom to walk around the grounds. Really must praise the owners for creating something special. There was plenty of parking space and a variety of places to visit. The best place we have ever stayed.
Mr Proctor
June 2016
The cottage is out of this world. A perfect place to get away from it all. The welcome we received was extremely warm and friendly. We would not hesitate to recommend Courtyard Cottage and a future visit is highly likely.
Mrs Bowen

A quirky cottage set in beautiful gardens. It was very clean and well equipped, with a thoughtful and generous welcome pack on arrival. Had a helpful and welcoming owner. A little gem.
Ms Stewart

Whatever your expectations you will not be disappointed with this truly exceptional cottage. From the charming beamed Tudor style exterior, the courtyard overflowing with an abundance of floral displays and quirky architectural pieces. Really a 10 out of 10 experience.
Mrs Gale

I could definitely recommend Courtyard Cottage to anyone desiring a break in Shropshire and the Welsh Border Country.
Mrs Aitken
June 2015
We had a wonderful time, the property was full of character yet homely and very comfortable, especially the beds. The towels were lovely and fluffy and there was plenty of hot water.

Ms Byrne
March 2015
The cottage was fabulous, very cosy and comfortable. The photos on the site don't do it justice. The grounds were beautiful. The owners were so friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble - they had a great knowledge of the history of the house, which was really interesting. The welcome pack was very thoughtful and much appreciated. Overall a very tranquil and relaxing place to visit.
Mrs Wise
May 2015
The owners were very hospitable and made us very welcome. The situation was so peaceful - just birdsong around us. The cottage was charming and full of character, with a very comfortable bed and everything catered for. Shropshire is a beautiful county with lots to see and do.
Mrs Smartsmart
July 2015
The best cottage we have stayed in so far, the hosts were lovely people and have thought of everything. There were beautiful grounds to wander around in, we honestly couldn't fault it. We will definitely be making a return visit.
Dr Maun
September 2015
This was the most delightful cottage that we have ever stayed in, and that's in about 40 years of using self-catering cottages. We were given a warm welcome, an excellent and were made to feel at home. The setting is beautiful, the cottage has been beautifully restored and is very comfortable.
Mrs Adie

Ms Penny-roberts

The cottage and it's setting are really beautiful. It was a privilege to have stayed there. The woodburner made the whole cottage toasty warm, it was so cosy we didn't want to go out.
Mrs Morgan
June 2015
The cottage was absolutely lovely and the owners matched this, they were so helpful and friendly. The surrounding countryside is marvellous and we visited Ironbridge, Ludlow and Powys Castle to name but a few. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage, with its very high standards, to all my friends.
Mr Swarbrick
April 2015
Certainly the best appointed cottage we have ever stayed in. Really sympathetically restored. The grounds are very grand and the hosts are two of the most genuine chaps we've had the pleasure to meet. We all feel well rested and the kids loved it. We intend to return to this gem as soon as we can. Thank-you!
Mrs Maybee
May 2015
The care and attention to detail of the renovation of the cottage coupled with all mod cons and comfort was amazing. The colourful and sheltered courtyard surrounded by magnificent grounds was a haven of peace. The welcome by the owners and tour of the cottage made us feel immediately at home. We particularly enjoyed learning about the history of the hall and buildings. Nothing was too much trouble.
Mrs Carter
October 2014
This is our second time of visiting Courtyard Cottage, and we hope to go again in the not too distant future. It is by far the best self catering cottage we have ever visited.
Mrs Allen
December 2014
The cottage was spectacular and the welcome by the owner was just as it should be. A unique cottage in unique surroundings. The welcome pack was the icing on the cake.
Mrs Powell
October 2014
This property was without doubt the best we have ever stayed in! We have had 7 holiday cottages with Sykes and Courtyard Cottage was absolutely excellent in every way! If it was possible, it should be given 6 ticks! Everything about the Cottage was really wonderful - so comfortable, so clean, beautifully decorated. The hosts could not have been more welcoming and helpful to us.
Mrs Carr
August 2014
A beautiful property in a lovely setting. The owners were very welcoming and we had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday.
Dr Mawson
April 2014
Courtyard Cottage was a great place to spend a week in quiet surroundings with an amazing garden. My daughter enjoyed exploring the grounds of the hall which were generously available, especially looking at the chickens and fountain. The owners were lovely, helpful and unobtrusive but friendly and helped instantly when asked. A great place to stay, I'd definitely go back as a great location with lots to do. The huge wood burner and magnificent lounge were a bonus too!
Mrs Wones
April 2014
Cottage was lovely, it had everything we needed. The cottage owners made us feel very welcome. We will book this cottage again.
Mrs Angell
September 2014
A warm welcome was extended by the owners of the cottage. It had a very comfortable bed and the wood burner was laid out ready to just light - little touches which made for a very comfortable holiday. For me holiday accommodation has to be as comfortable and as appealing as my own home - and it was.
Mr Mcbrown
December 2013
Superb accommodation. Will be going back. Will recommend to friends and family.
Mrs Denning
December 2014
The warm welcome from the owners and the perfect setting for Christmas with ideal surroundings, a walk to the pub at Tibberton for lunch and a walk back to a cosy log fire made it a very special venue. The quiet and darkness and comfortable bed ensured a good nights sleep. It was especially good for us as we have family nearby who were able to visit us and we could visit them.
Mr Bell
May 2014
The owners were really friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The property was kept immaculate and is in a beautiful location. What a gem of a property, would stay there again any time.
Mr Fountain
December 2013
The decor and surroundings are excellent, the pictures don't do this property justice really. The hosts are very welcoming.
Mr Nichol
November 2013
The property is excellent and has everything you could wish for to enjoy a comfortable stay. The wood-burner is a great attraction. The owners make you feel very much at home. The little hamlet of Meeson is in the North of Shropshire and within easy reach of some delightful towns and villages. If you book this property you will be delighted.
Mr Mageean

An outstanding cottage beautifully kept in a superb setting.

Mrs Roberts
August 2013
Courtyard cottage is a beautiful place to stay with very peaceful surroundings. We had a very warm and friendly welcome from the owners with a great welcome pack to start our week. If I could I would transport the cottage to wherever we wanted to stay. Can not praise the cottage or owners enough. Many thanks.
Mrs Lawrence
May 2013
This cottage is absolutely beautiful and had everything you could ever want. Period features really well restored but not overwhelming like some restorations. Everything of the highest quality, very comfortable and the surrounding gardens so pretty and peaceful. I highly recommend this cottage!
Mr McGlynn

Lovely setting in a peaceful place with excellent hosts. A very high class of accommodation with which we could not find a single fault. We had a relaxing and pleasant week in such beautiful surroundings.
Mrs Denning
October 2012
The peace and quiet of a relatively isolated cottage in the countryside. The privilege of walking the large garden and grounds of the historic Hall. Cosy and aesthetically pleasing accommodation. There was central heating plus the wood-burner within well insulated walls and roof.
Mrs Chambers
August 2013
We spent 4 weeks in this property and didn't want to leave. It is a very rare treat to have the availability of such wonderful accommodation and magnificent gardens to enjoy. My advice if you are looking for Shropshire accommodation is book it! You will not be disappointed!

Mr Mrs McNulty
October 2012
An absolutely charming cottage set in the delightful and impressive grounds of Meeson Hall. It was quiet, serene, cosy, very comfortable and the wood burning stove was an absolute pussy-cat to use and control. The owners made us so welcome with a welcome gift of their own fresh eggs! A wonderful part of the country with lots to see and do.
Dr Keeney
January 2012
Courtyard Cottage is a sensitively converted building which provides a welcome and relaxing environment to be in at any time of the year. It is quiet and secluded with superior furnishings, and was a pleasure to spend time in.
Mrs Weller
August 2012
Very warm welcome from the owners and a tray of fresh eggs, milk and locally baked bread. Peaceful and quiet area but with easy access to many interesting places, especially the Ironbridge Gorge Museums and Shrewsbury.

Lovely cottage set in superb surroundings. We were made to feel very welcome by the hosts. A wonderful place to get away from the hurly burly of modern living.
Mr Mernyo

The property was stunning with a beautiful garden, breathtaking area and only 20 minutes drive to the Victorian village in Ironbridge. Can't wait to go back in the summertime.

February 2016
This is a great cottage, in a wonderful location, set in the very nice grounds of Meeson Hall. Our welcome was great, the owners are very welcoming (great welcome pack with home made jam) and happy to help answering any questions and offering advice on things to do in the area. The cottage itself is warm (the log fire was lit for our arrival) cosy, clean and very well presented. We highly recommend this cottage to relax and get away from it all in a tranquil comfortable location that's in a good location to access Shrewsbury, Iornbridge and other interesting sites such as Stokesay Castle or Ludlow markets. So good we got engaged here :) We will be back.

All the good reviews are accurate. There is so much you can write to praise not only the cottage but the lovely owners who leave nothing to chance to make sure you enjoy your stay. I would like to mention Sue the housekeeper too. The cottage is a haven of peace and lovely to come back to when you have been to the surrounding places. There was a lovely welcome pack of goodies, super comfortable bed with the added bonus of a walk in wardrobe so you could tuck your cases away. The lounge is beautiful and compliments Meeson Hall. Ample space everywhere with a kitchen that has everything you need for your holiday. There are plenty of places to eat nearby but we loved the atmosphere of the cottage so cooked for ourselves. Everything was spotless and you just felt very relaxed while you were there. We didn't need to light the wood burner but you can just help yourself to more logs once your supply had run out. If you want a truly relaxing holiday then this is the place to stay. Well done and thank you Adrian and Mark, you have achieved something very special
August 2015
We chanced upon a cancellation for our stay. We couldn't quite believe our luck! The property is beautiful and the owners obviously wanted us to have a great time which meant we were very well looked after. We arrived late after a gruesome road trip and found a farm shop in the village who sold everything we needed for a steak dinner except wine - and our fab hosts provided that! It is so lovely to be able to walk in the grounds (the grass is so soft it had to be barefoot!) We fed the chickens and were given a tour of the main Hall which has been lovingly restored and is a haven of genteel living! It is an ideal location for lots of visits like the Ironbridge museums, Hawkstone Follies and the RAF museum ar Cosford.
January 2016
Wanted to spend a quiet Christmas week in a tranquil cottage and boy we found a absolute gem .courtyard cottage is exactly what we were looking for and more; from the warm welcoming from sue the housekeeper we felt at home instantly.supplied was a welcome pack and the log fire was roaring .further inspection we found everything we needed for a comfortable stay with quality bed linen and towels and they cleanliness of the property was excellent. .next day we met Mark and Adrian the proprietors who are were a pleasure to meet they showed us around the manor house telling us the history and what they had achieved and their plans for the near future brilliant. .lots of places to visit in the area but we didn't venture to far as we were quite contented to stay at the cottage and the lovely meeson manor bye for now see you next year.happy we found the Sykes web site they were brilliant happy New year to you all Steve-Linda.
April 2015
We had an amazing weekend at Meeson cottage. It was our wedding anniversary and we were spoilt with a bottle of bubbly on arrival! A beautiful welcome pack of goodies was there as well with freshly laid eggs, fresh bread and the most delicious home made Jam. The cottage itself is gorgeous. The pictures do not do it justice. The log burner was wonderful on the cold winter nights too. The owners were so helpful and welcoming. We even got a guided tour of their amazing home. We would recommend this place to everybody wanting a romantic get away. We hope to be back again soon
June 2015
The hosts were welcoming and so friendly we appreciated the lovely welcome pack with homemade jam which was so delicious we had to buy more to take home. The beds were so comfortable we didn't want to get up in the mornings. This is such a peaceful and tranquil location with so much to see and do if you want to. Everything was provided for a comfortable stay a home from home. We booked this as a birthday surprise for my mum and she was absolutely delighted. We had a great week away made so much more enjoyable by our stay in Courtyard Cottage. A big thank you to the lovely hosts.
February 2015
We chose Courtyard Cottage after viewing it on line and after reading the excellent reviews. The cottage was certainly 5 star the cottage is attached to the owners property which is a listed house in lovely gardens. We have traveled extensively in Austria and Switzerland and it was certainly on par with the hotels which have very high standards.The cottage is for three people, so there was my husband and myself and my mother in law. We had plenty of space and the owners had thought of everything we needed. We had a basket on arrival of bread, milk, eggs (from their own chickens) and their home made jam which was excellent. With the month being February it was very cold but on arrival Mark had lit a lovely log fire to welcome us. Courtyard cottage is indeed one of the loveliest ,homely peaceful cottages in the Shropshire countryside. Thoroughly recommended! The owners Mark and Adrian are excellent hosts.(Adrian's jam was fab)

We stayed at Courtyard Cottage for 3 fantastic nights. What a find, it is a two bedroom cottage that sleeps 3, it has an ensuite on the master bedroom and a family bathroom. it is fully fitted with everything that you need for your stay and the owners Mark and Adrian even make sure you have all the essentials to start your stay, bread, milk, home made jam and free range eggs etc. The cottage is straight off a chocolate box, all exposed beams, log burner, the most luxurious and comfortable bed and first floor gallery overlooking the lounge area.It is beautiful and there is a never ending supply of logs and coal for the fire. You are free to roam the estate as you please and the owners also showed us around the main house which is stunning and will also soon be available for bed and breakfast. We had a perfect weekend here, it was very quiet and relaxing but also an ideal base to visit Ludlow, Ironbridge etc. If you are looking for a completely stress free weekend or longer break then this is definatly the place, we have already rebooked for later in the year.
October 2013
An amazing holiday rental set in beautiful gardens. I have paid to visit gardens less impressive settings. The owners could not have been more accommodating and their attention to detail is superb. If you are looking to rent in Shropshire look no further. You will not be disappointed. We rented Courtyard cottage for a month and didn't want to leave.

November 2013
We stayed for a week in this lovely property which, while attached to Meeson Hall is very private , quiet and comfortable. The gardens and the whole of the estate are free for you to walk around, It definitely has the wow factor. You must be very hard to please if you don't really love this cottage. The welcome pack was very generous especially the home made jam. The excellent wood burner made the cottage very cosy and warm on the cold October evenings. We will definitely return one day. Book this cottage and you won't be sorry !!
March 2013

August 2013
We stayed in this lovely cottage in early June and spent an idyllic week out and about in the area enjoying the relative quiet of the roads and the beautiful countryside. The cottage is full of charm but very comfortable and the owners are really friendly and helpful without being intrusive in any way. A memorable stay and one which we hope to repeat in the near future.
May 2012
5 star experience. Stunning decor, very helpful owner, breathtaking area. Book a weekend there and you will understand why is it so special. First but definitely not the last time I've been there.
November 2012
Can't fault the cottage. Owners were really friendly. Wish we could have stayed longer. Lots to do in the area and the locals were very friendly.
