Carefully renovated to a very good standard, using local materials, both to retain its traditional characteristics but also to fully accommodate eco-friendly design principles.

Explore the farm, which hosts a range of wildlife and includes ponds, meadows and a brook. There are a number of local country pubs that offer excellent pub food and traditional ales or, alternatively, why not visit local towns such as Bishops Castle or Ludlow for a range of places to eat out. The farm leading to the property is proud to support Care Farming West Midlands. Shop 7 miles, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

    We stayed here for 3 days over New Year 2018 and had a superb time. The cottage is gorgeous and just what we were looking for to get away from the rat-race and back into the country. The owners were very available in advance of our stay to answer all of my questions and gave us a lovely warm welcome. The kitchen is very well equipped and had everything we needed to prepare a roast meal for 4 people. I really feel the cold but was surprised how comfortable I felt staying there - we made sure the fire was going in the evenings and the hot water bottle kept me warm enough as I got into bed. As long as people are aware that it can get cold and dress/prepare appropriately it's absolutely fine. The cottage is very remote which is part of its charm and we enjoyed driving out to Bishops Castle for food shopping and to enjoy a local pub. Mobile phone reception isn't very good but that wasn't a problem for us and the GPS got us there very easily. We loved going up to the farm to meet Trevor and his wife and got to handle cute piglets! We would highly recommend the cottage and hope to visit during the summer to be able to do some of the lovely walks that we spotted on the many OS maps that the owners have kindly made available to use while staying.

    Great stay at the cottage. Paul and Julie could not have been more helpful, especially when we locked ourselves out! Totally our fault. As it was a particularly cold, wet week, the hot bottles came in useful, as did the extra fleeces, but that did not deter from enjoying the log burner along with roasted chestnuts and the mulled wine. We completed a 10 mile walk on a dry day, directly from the cottage, along lovely countryside and although quite steep in places, even I, as a non walker, managed it with a few stops. Make sure you visit Ludlow and the castle which was excellent value, along with a trip to the coast at Aberdovey. Next time we will make sure we visit the red kite sanctuary, which we missed because it was closed on the later part of our stay but managed to see some on the walk. Great cottage to get way from the hustle and bustle and don't forget to buy the lovely meat and eggs from the farm to take home. Enjoy the quiet and the stars

    We went for a nice relaxing weekend, and that's what you get at this cottage. Peaceful, away from everything, great views but you do need to travel for shops etc. We loved it here and would definitely come back. The games room was also brilliant for our 7 year old.

    A perfect place with a terrific view! Wake up in the morning and see the sun rise above the hills right from your bed. Knowing that your own private windmill is making energy for you, while the sunboiler has heated your water for a shower. Lighting fire in your Hearth. It was a happy time.

    For people wanting to get away from it all, this is the ideal retreat. Completely isolated with fantastic scenery. Great for walking in the immediate proximity and in the event of inclement weather a games room to sharpen up your table-tennis skills.

    A superb cottage in an excellent location with lovely and very helpful hosts. Loved the wood burner, beams, games room and the whole charm of the little old cottage. Little things could have made it perfect - the outside looked a little unloved as the grass was long and the two lavender pots had dried up. But no complaints and would go back. It's in the middle of nowhere on a lovely farm so you have help close to hand.

    Lovely little cottage! Julie took our call at past midnight because we couldn't find it on arrival - that's service for you! Thank you. The surroundings are beautiful and it helped that the weather was wonderful. Would love to come back for longer next time. My only constructive criticism is that, having spent many years travelling in many different countries around the world, that the english are the meanest in terms of giving you anything for free! some tea/coffee would have been appreciated after a long journey and I forgot my wash bag but there was nothing in the bathroom. No hair dryer. Just stuff that doesn't cost very much but make a big difference. Anyway that's just my thoughts. X

    A lovely little cottage in a beautiful part of the country. The weather was great when we were there so we ate our evening meals outside at the table and chairs provided. It was so peaceful! The generator was very noisy but we put it on when we went out so it didn't disturb us too much (the garner explained the instructions for the generator to me but I found it all quite difficult to remember so I recommend writing them down!) The beds were really comfy and it was very clean. I'd recommend it.

    Beautiful, quiet location. Delightful cottage with great games room. Very comfy beds. Great outdoor patio. The cottage is on a farm. And the farmer is lovely. This part of Shropshire is so chilled and relaxed. A proper get away from it all destination.
