A fabulous cottage, furnished beautifully, with absolutely nothing lacking. John and Alison have thought of everything, from the welcome note to us (and our two dogs!) to the treats for them, and a welcome pack for us which included cake/eggs/milk/bread etc. There was even a shoe horn in the under stairs cupboard!
The instructions for all the electrical items/heating/water etc were perfect, and there was a folder with very comprehensive instructions on what to see and do locally, where to eat, emergency services etc.
There were games/jigsaws/books/DVDs for everyone from babies to adults.
A perfect cottage for dogs too. Our two Golden Retrievers loved it. Walks from the door, and they could also run off lead at Whittington Castle, just ten minutes walk away. A visit to Oswestry Old Fort was also great for them, as they could run free there too, so long as you stayed within the English Heritage footpath, as this kept them away from any livestock. The kitchen and conservatory were perfect for them too, as the floor was quarry tiled, so could be mopped out when they came in mucky from a walk. And as there was a stairgate at the bottom of the stairs, they could sleep in there overnight, and still know that we weren't far away. Several local pubs were dog friendly too, and in fact fed them chicken or treats and brought them water too!!
I couldn't recommend Pear Tree Cottage enough. Thanks John and Alison for keeping the cottage so beautifully.
