    Dear This was super. Such an old cottage and so well kept in the original state. Super. A lot of time they speak about “a cottage” but this house deserves the name cottage. Point to think over is only the wifi conditions. Once again well done for the owners!!!!!

    very pretty cottage, full of historical interest. large dog friendly garden. comprehensive tour given by owner on our arrival with interesting history lesson. the front garden would benefit from a tidy as it did spoil the kerb-side view overall good value for money

    Absolutely wonderful place to relax and just get away from it all. We booked our third visit in the car on the way home which tells its own story!

    Comfortable, convenient and cosy cottage in perfect location. Truly dog friendly, large secure garden and close to lots of great walking. The cottage feels secluded but is within a couple of minutes of main but not busy roads. Lots of history in the area and loads to do. One of the nicest properties we have visited.

    This was an emotional return to the cottage where I spent part of every summer holiday as a child. It was idyllic then and remains so. Peace, tranquility, history and the beauty of Shropshire. A heady mix.

    This cottage was simply lovely, with an outstandingly good garden (from the perspective of the whole family including an 11 year old boy and three dogs). There were a number of excellent walks starting from Kempton and the ford just around the corner was enjoyed thoroughly by our elderly labrador and son who enjoyed cycling through it. We appreciated being able to store our cycles in the summer house, and suggested the owners install a padlock and advertise the cottage as having a bike store. We have booked again for next year, and are looking forward to it.

    Great location for Walkers etc, We got the peace and quiet we wanted. Cottage is a lovely quirky old cottage. The lighhting is the one thing i would improve, but to be honest we didnt spend much time in there as we were treated to lovely weather. The most important thing to us was that the dogs had somewhere to play and relax, the lovely garden gave them that. Would i visit yeomans Cottage again?? Yes Most definately, Thanks. Ray And Kaye.

    Wonderful cottage in a very secluded and peaceful setting. The garden was fantastic and I think this was what we enjoyed the most. The cottage is very old and very creaky and very wobbly. Everything you could possibly want from a quintessential thatch cottage. We had a great week.
