We stayed a week in this beautiful holiday rental cottage. It was extremely clean, beautifully furnished and had everything one would need. In a quiet area but near all the attractions that Shropshire has to offer. Walking on Long Mynd and Stipperstones, fantastic views, lovely villages and small towns. Historic buildings, National Trust properties , near the Welsh border and the town of Ironbridge. A fantastic place for a holiday.
