Tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property because of its tranquil location, in touch with the nature. The site and surrounding countryside was beautiful, the sound of birds, lambs and stream adding to its magic.

The kitchen was well equipped and the bedroom with bunk beds for all of us was fun and loved by our children! The property was as described.

We were warmly welcomed by Chris and showed around and adviced on local walks etc. We had great walks in the area as well as exploring pretty Ludlow, Bishops Castle and stunning hills of Long Mynd.

Left inspired by Chris and Looby' s work and life philosophy. Thank you for our lovely stay.

A lovely tranquil location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Waterloo Farm. It was a very warm welcome on arrival, and we were shown around the very large and pleasant grounds, including a sheep field and small lake, which we were invited to wander whenever we liked. The location is close to Ludlow, which is a historic town with many interesting shops, along with its castle which is quite reasonably priced to visit. We also visited Croft Castle and Berrington Hall which are National Trust properties. We also took a trip to Knighton to take a walk along Offa's Dyke, which had some excellent views. All in all, we really enjoyed our trip and it was a welcome break from technology, which meant we spent some quality time as a family.
