Groom Cottage Family Cottage description

Holiday home
Groom Cottage is situated in a charming rural location, around an attractive courtyard, just two miles from the quaint village of Bucknell. There is a double with en-suite, a twin bedroom and a bathroom on the first floor, while downstairs is a kitchen with breakfast area and a sitting room with dining area. And with so much to see and do in the local area, it'll be a tough choice whether to stay in and enjoy the Groom Cottage, or go out and explore the countryside.

Nestling in the beautiful River Teme Valley in South Shropshire, Bucknell offers two pubs, which both serve food and within easy reach are the market towns of Craven Arms and Knighton with their excellent amenities for visitors. This is a charming area of unspoiled, tranquil countryside, close to the borders of Wales and Herefordshire, which offers many interesting pursuits and attractions. The notable market town of Ludlow with its fine restaurants, the famous museums of Ironbridge and the thriving county town of Shrewsbury are all a short drive away.

A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.

This converted barn was superb! Our hosts who live within the grounds are wonderful people. It is a perfect base for walkers or cyclists!

An absolutely fabulous cottage with everything you would ever need on a weeks break. We would definitely return for another holiday.

The cottage was so well prepared for visitors.

The absolute quietness of the place with no light at night was brilliant. This is a place that is easy to get to yet a complete retreat for those who want a very peaceful holiday. The owners were very friendly but did not intrude. Lots of information and the pay phone was useful due to there being no mobile phone connection around the area. We would certainly recommend this property. I feel it was the best we have ever rented in over 25 years.

The owners were very helpful but not intrusive. The cottage had absolutely everything you needed, and the views from the gardens were beautiful. There was a lot of tourist information available. It was quite restful!

Beautiful location. The owners were lovely, friendly and welcoming. On hand if needed, but not intrusive. Excellent instructions left regarding all appliances within the cottage. A beautiful conversion finished to a high specification, and high standard.

Groom Cottage is a beautifully appointed, character property in a fantastically peaceful, rural setting. We could not fault the cottage in any way. Every last detail had been thoughtfully considered and included. A real find.
