The Turnip House Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
The Turnip House is a barn conversion cottage on the owners' 250 acre farm near to the village of Westhope in Shropshire. The cottage can sleep six people and has three bedrooms (one double and two twins) two family bathrooms. The rest of the accommodation is made up of an open plan living area with a fitted kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area. Outside the cottage is off road parking for two cars and an enclosed patio area with outdoor furniture and a barbecue. With its neighbouring cottages, The Turnip House can sleep a total of thirty six people in a lovely rural setting.

The scattered village of Westhope is located amidst rolling farmland at the southern foot of the famous Wenlock Edge in Hope Valley. The area is home to numerous walks, rambling trails and cycle routes whilst many of Shropshire's main attractions are within easy driving distance of the village itself. Visitors can enjoy Church Stretton - known to the Victorians as Little Switzerland - with its antique shops and tea-rooms, in the midst of the beautiful Long Mynd Hills and close to the Acton Scott Historic Working Farm and the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre. The World Heritage Site at Ironbridge, Attingham Park, the market towns of Much Wenlock, Shrewsbury and Ludlow are all within easy reach, leaving visitors to the area spoiled for choice.

A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.

The accommodation was fantastic in every way. It was clean, tidy, well decorated and the kitchen had everything. We had an amazing time.

Very nice property and we all fitted in nicely. The kitchen, in particular, pretty much everyone was very impressed with it.

Very comfortable accommodation, tastefully decorated and appointed with very good quality furnishings. This made for a relaxing stay. A home made sponge cake, bottle of wine and milk in the fridge were a lovely surprise on arrival.

A good place to stay with a disabled mum and a dog, with it having a separate downstairs bedroom and toilet plus an enclosed garden. Also a lovely welcome from the owner with home-made cake, wine, chocolate and flowers.

What an amazing place, the accommodation was finished to an extremely high standard. The staff could not have been more helpful. Would definitely go back.

Fantastic stay at The Turnip House, large open plan living / dining area, very comfy couches and bedrooms, had a lovely family get together over a weekend and everyone agreed we would be back! Highly recommend!

Shropshire is somewhere I have wanted to go for a long time. Went with my husband and our son and daughter in law and the two grandsons aged 11 and 14 yrs. Loved The Turnip House, liked the spaciousness, it was nice to meet the owner who answered any questions. We went out and about and it was nice to return to The Turnip House after a long day. It was not far from the local pub which did lovely meals. Only problem, wish we had gone for 2 weeks instead of one, but it was half term in May, and that governed the amount of time we could spend. Lovely and relaxing with so much provided, so much more than usually provided when we have stayed in cottages before.

Friendly welcome and wonderful place. Ideally situated for Much Wenlock and Carding Mill Valley.

This is our favourite holiday cottage yet (we've done a few!). The decor was lovely (see photo's), great size kitchen / lounge, bedrooms were cozy and the beds super comfy. Hot tub was great and maintained every day. The kids loved the games room and went daily to play table tennis and pool. The welcome cake and wine was a lovely thought too. Great wi-fi, which only went down once as it was on a satellite system but rectified quickly. It has an upstairs bathroom and an en-suite bathroom with the downstairs bedroom, which was handy as there were 5 of us so no queuing for the loo! We had a game between us to see who could find something wrong... and all we came up with was no potato peeler... so as you can see this place just can't be faulted. Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning.

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.
