It was exactly what we were hoping it would be. The owners make every effort to ensure that the cottage has everything needed for a five person break, and are on hand if needed, but remain unobtrusive. For all anglers: The lake has a very small membership, so the freedom for people staying at the cottage is wonderful. Our catches were very rewarding, even exciting on occasion. My Son caught a 10lb carp on a float reel with three maggots! Golfers: superb courses with moderate fees are close by. Sightseers: Ironbridge has a wonderful atmosphere. Museums well worth a visit, and good selection of eateries for pauses in activity.
