Rowton Manor Cottage was absolutely fantastic-pictures on the website don't do it justice,much bigger than we expected and the garden was amazing. The owner made us feel so welcome. We would definitely recommend to friends and consider booking the same cottage again.

The property is very spacious, clean and decorated lovely, There was plenty of room for eight people and plenty of room for parking. The gardens were lovely and there was a supermarket nearby and various takeaways.

The property was very spacious, comfortable and warm; ideal for our family get together. The use of the garden was very much appreciated for the children to play in with a ball.

The cottage was very comfortable and suited our extended family exactly. We all felt quite at home, that makes a big difference to a holiday. Altogether a really good holiday in a lovely area. Can't recommend it highly enough.

One of the very best cottages that we have stayed in. A beautiful setting, really comfortable rooms and it was very well equipped. Extremely relaxing.

The cottage was clean, warm and well equipped. We came during the lambing season and the adjacent field had a flock of sheep with very young lambs.

Everything you could want in a cottage. A great location with something to do in every direction with A Star scenery. Loved the wood burning fire place, used it every night.

This is a very comfortable and spacious property equipped with everything you could possibly need. It has a lovely garden and is in a wonderful setting. The hosts couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. This is the best property we have stayed at and I can't think of any negatives.

Rowton Manor Cottage is in a beautiful place. We loved the sunsets and eating outside. When we came in we were able to light the wood burning stove.

Liked the warm, friendly, welcome thoughtful touches. The cottage was excellent for a family group plus dog. Had a beautiful outlook even in middle of December! The wonderful Aga was great for cosy warmth and cooking a huge roast for us all. Enjoyed the whole weekend, definitely recommend it to everyone.

Rowton Manor Cottage is very comfortable, spacious and well equipped. The peace and quiet was very much appreciated. The owners were very welcoming and helpful and it was lovely to find a gorgeous cake and bottle of wine when we arrived together with flowers in the kitchen. We enjoyed various walks and visits locally, Stokesay Castle and the drive over the Burway on the Long Mynd being highlights. We found Ludlow to be gem with the castle, markets and interesting shops and would recommend the Unicorn for lunch. There is still lots left to do so we will be back!

We liked the wonderful warm welcome we received from the owner, the excellently presented home from home atmosphere. The cake, chocolate, fresh eggs and wine left for us by the owner. The AGA cooking experience and a warm cosy but very big house to unwind in. The walk to the dog friendly pub.

Lovely property, very nice owner. Nice, clean and well fitted cottage. I do not know if it had a Tourist Star but is should have a very good one.

The house was lovely, warm and comfortable with the bonus of the extra lounge in the suite upstairs. There was plenty of room for us to relax. Beautifully decorated for Christmas with a real tree in the main family room and plenty of equipment in the kitchen to cook Christmas dinner. No one wanted to leave.

This house is the perfect base for a family holiday in Shropshire. We were a party of six adults and a five-year-old. We received a friendly welcome from the owner, who had also left a lovely sponge cake, eggs and a bottle of wine for us in the kitchen. The house is very well equipped and there was plenty of room for all of us with ample seating both inside and in the garden. The house is easy to reach - but make sure you follow the owner's instructions and not your Sat-Nav! There is plenty of room for parking (we had three cars). We made good use of the barbecue as we were lucky with the weather. Craven Arms is a short drive away and has a good supermarket.
March 2014
The house was lovely, we were a party of 6 adults and 4 children aged from 5yrs to 6 months. The cottage had everything we needed and was in a lovely location. We were left a welcoming pack which was a lovely surprise and would certainly return there.
May 2014
We had a very happy family break in the middle of February. From the moment of our arrival, the owners could not have been more helpful(we had Tesco delivery problems and no mobile phone signal !) Our party comprised several adults & 3 grandchildren and the house easily accommodated everyone - we used the top floor lounge as a "play/crafts room". The kitchen was also a warm and practical room with 2 fridges and 2 cookers !

We have just returned after 6 nights at this cottage. It is in a very rural and peaceful location, up a single track road close to Broome and Aston on Clun. On arrival we found the owner had left us a bottle of wine, vase of flowers, freshly laid eggs and a huge Victoria Sponge on the kitchen table - all lovely, thank you. There were 7 of us (all adults) and there was plenty of room. The kitchen has an Aga, which keeps the room lovely and cosy. (There is also a traditional hob & oven should you not wish to cook on the Aga.) The top floor could be considered self-contained with an en-suite bedroom (super king bed which can be separated to become two single beds), and lounge/kitchen/diner. This is handy if there are different generations who want to watch different things on the TV or play games whilst adults are using the loung downstairs! The only downsides are that the en-suite in the top floor does not have a shower, only a shower attachment; there seemed to be a blockage in the drainage of the handbasin in the Family Bathroom (water took ages to go down the plughole); and a lot of the crockery is chipped. That said, we had a great time there as the property has all that you could wish for in a holiday cottage.

A spectacular Grade II listed large country cottage only a short distance from Craven Arms, Shropshire. The Cottage is spacious, very clean, comfortable and always felt extremely homely during our thoroughly enjoyable stay. We booked Rowton Manor Cottage to celebrate a 30th Birthday with family (7 guests) and we were overwhelmed with the property and location itself but also by the kindness and generosity of the owners. On arrival we were greeted with a homemade sponge cake, bottle of wine and box of chocolates. The owners, who live in the property next door, were extremely friendly and helpful at all time and we enjoyed an evening drink with them to which they were really great company. Whilst staying at the Cottage we travelled to nearby attractions in Ludlow, Shrewsbury, Powis Castle in Wales and most enjoyable of all Acton Scott Historic Working Farm and Stokesay Castle! We had a absolutely fantastic family holiday at Rowton Manor Cottage and would certainly highly recommend and visit again!
October 2012
Had a wonderful week. The setting and the house itself are excellent - very quiet country retreat with every comfort you could wish for.
December 2012
A large property in a rural location a short distance from Craven arms. Aga in the kitchen and wood burner in the downstairs lounge very good for drying wet clothes!Well supplied with all amenities, spacious, a second upstairs lounge a plus. Owners very helpful and friendly, living next door. Clean on arrival, but previous tenants had not properly washed crockery and cutlery: we had to re-do them all.
