Homestead is a very comfortable property and well equipped also.

This is our third year at this property, we absolutely love it. It is about 5/10 minutes drive away from the Ironbridge museums. We love going to this property, it is a real home from home. It is quiet, relaxing and a lovely place to visit. Would highly recommend.

One of the best holidays we have ever had. The cottage was beautifully appointed with everything we could wish for, and the welcoming cake was delicious. All the tourist attractions were within easy reach and entailed very little long distance driving. We thoroughly recommend this holiday, this particular cottage, and this area.

We had an excellent stay at The Homestead with my daughter and family. It is ideally located for all the attractions around Ironbridge and surrounding area. We would definitely stay there again if in the area.

Everything about this bungalow was excellent, from the comfortable beds, to the great amount of space, inside and out. The location could not have been better, the bungalow is set in lovely gardens so could be a peaceful retreat too. We were a party of 6 elderly adults, and thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay.

The location was idea, there was plenty of relaxed space and the countryside was lovely. Eating places were within walking distance, and there were good walks near the river. Shrewsbury and Much Wenlock are within easy reach.

Position of property could not have been better for reaching many museums on foot or by public transport. Charming, hospitable owner. This is the best holiday property we have rented to date.

Accommodation was excellent.
Mr Mills

An excellent bungalow in a prime position with plenty places to visit. There's a good deli over the road and good pubs within 5 miles. It has all you need and the biscuits, home made by the owner were lovely. A holiday for all ages.
Mrs Irving

The property was in a good location and had a nice appearance, we had a good welcome from the owners.
Mr Leggett
August 2012
It was a very comfortable base for our holiday, with very good facilities and a lovely garden. It was ideally situated for Ironbridge and the countryside. The owners, who lived next door were most friendly, helpful and welcoming.

Great Place to stay! Very close to attractions and eateries. We were two families stayed here for a week. About 10 museums around and strongly recommend the Year-long pass valid for all museums. The house is very spacious and comfortable for 8 members. The services and the cottage were very good and well furnished. May not be the place for peace and quiet, although, the photos definitely seem to indicate so. The cottage is in an area that is quite well-populated and is opposite a school. Overall, a best place to get away for a week with kids!

3 generations of the family, 8 of us in all, got together for a long weekend Homestead seemed ideal - we live in Telford, but the others came in from Merseyside, London, and Cornwall. One of the party has difficulty getting around, so the en-suite in the main bedroom was a boon. Even the sofa bed wasn't too bad. There is plenty of space for all of us to eat together, and the sitting room is a great space. I agree with a previous reviewer - this won't be the most peaceful place in the world, but it's in a residential area opposite a school, so what would you expect? If you have small children beware the brook at the rear of the property Nevertheless, whole-hreartedly recommended!
December 2013
We were welcomed on arrival and entered into a clean well decorated very comfortable home with all the required amenities. We loved the big kitchen and cooking facilities, the lounge and private garden. It was located near all the museums, independent shops, coffee houses and restaurants. There were supermarkets relatively nearby for other shopping. The owners were always willing to advise on sightseeing and they helped us plan a suitable route home at the end of the week. Everything needed for a very enjoyable holiday was to hand.
