We arrived at this place, and were treated to a lovely surprise of a homemade cake, a jug of milk in the fridge, a bar of chocolate and a bottle of wine! The owner arrived shortly to greet us, and informed us what the area had to offer. Nothing was too much trouble.
The location is tranquil and there are many 'conservation walks' to walk your dog. Although situated off an A road, the location is central to nearby activities and attractions, such as lovely walks in Carding Mill Valley, Long Mynd, the 'Hills & Dales' route to Craven Arms. Attractions within close proximity are Acton Scott, a working Victorian farm, and the charming town of Ludlow (9 miles away). There are other numerous attractions in the area. Supermarkets deliver to this property, although don't forget the high quality food provided at local towns such as Church Stretton.
If you have kids, then they will love viewing the pigs, donkeys and cattle situated in adjacent fields. The games room was also entertaining on a rainy day.
The only area for slight improvement is the gym. It currently houses a weight lifting machine, a rowing machine and a cross trainer. Unfortunately, when we visited, the cross trainer was out of action and in my opinion, the gym would benefit from a running machine/spin cycle and a fan to cool the room.
All in all a very well appointed holiday cottage, and we had a wonderful time.
