A comfortable cottage in a beautiful quiet setting, but it was easy to travel to interesting places and was a welcome haven to return to.

We loved the cottage which was very comfortable and very well equipped. We were able to relax and had peace and quiet, with lovely views across fields. The area provided lots to do and see and the cottage owners were very informative and helpful.We hope to visit again.

All the family loved the holiday. The property was in such a peaceful place but not too far from local attractions. The owners of the property were lovely; nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely recommend this cottage to other people; it was very homely and a real break away from our busy lifestyle.

Very welcoming and friendly owners. Fantastic location, surrounded by fields, and very close to lots of places of interest. Very clean and cosy cottage which had everything we needed.

This is our second trip to this wonderful cottage in summer. It has all amenities you could need and heaters in each room and a log fire in the lounge. I think it would make an ideal winter retreat as it would be warm and cosy throughout and we may look at visiting again in colder months. Our hosts Melvyn and Irene couldn't do enough for us to make sure our stay was a comfortable and memorable one. I would thoroughly recommend Rose Cottage to anyone wanting a quiet retreat.

It was very centrally situated for touring around the countryside and the owners of the property were very helpful and friendly without being intrusive.

A beautiful, peaceful situation with a lovely open fire and lovely main bedroom and new extension.
September 2015
We had a lovely break at the cottage over the bank holiday weekend. The cottage is in a beautiful spot standing on its own away from the farm house. It was really cosy inside especially with the log burning fire. Both bedrooms were very comfortable and beautifully furnished. There were plenty of towels and toiletries available in the bathroom and the downstairs shower room was very handy. Irene and Melvyn were lovely hosts and always on hand if we needed anything or in advising us where to visit to make the most of our all too brief stay. This really was a great location for a retreat yet a handy base to tour the local area and attractions. We will definitely return in the near future.

Very peaceful and quiet, with lots of space to roam around - abundant wildlife too. Very friendly and helpful owners. Just the restful break we were looking for.
July 2013
very relaxing break away, beautiful tranquillity. lovely sitting room and new extension, fire fantastic especially as it was burning away after a very long and stressful journey getting there. Main bedroom lovely- 2nd bedroom should be a single or small double. well converted. kitchen a bit tired and could do with a refit but this didn't spoil a totally lovely week. Great for visiting Wales,Shropshire and beyond.

Rose Cottage, Maesbrook is ideally located with a very private, rural feel. First impressions were pleasing, although the kitchen a little dated. Overall cleanliness of the cottage was first rate however a lack of basics in respect of toilet rolls, washing up and cleaning utensils. The cottage is advertised as with 'open fire/wood burner'. This is not true. The wood burner is of a 'closed' variety and consequently gives off very little heat directly into the room. The purpose of the wood burner is to heat hot water and eventually, the radiators (with the aid of an electric pump). Logs are provided, which is just as well because you will need plenty of them. The wood burner requires almost constant attention in order to maintain a modicum of heat through the radiators. It is inadvisable to leave the property empty for any length of time, unless of course you are happy to return to a freezing cottage. Going to bed with the expectancy of waking up in a warm environment is quite out of the question. To add to matters, is the addition of a new extension to the rear of the property. With summer in mind, I would imagine, a fabulous bonus with views over the open countryside but in the middle of high winter, its open plan design backing onto the living area is totally inappropriate and only adds further to the chill factor. We managed one night of a seven night booking. Probably a lovely cottage in the warmer months but to be respectfully avoided in winter.

Rose Cottage is a perfect holiday cottage. It is spotless and well equipped with all facilities and a good base for sight seeing. We enjoyed it so much that we have booked again for this year.
