Beautiful cottage in a great location
A perfect hideaway
We loved The Cowshed. Perfect hosts, there if needed but totally respected your privacy. And lovely to chat to when you did bump in to them.
We had some rainy days which didn't matter at all as the sun room was perfect to sit and read in and the bed was ridiculously comfy.
Sunny days meant barbecues whilst enjoying the incredible view and sunsets whilst watching the birds.
We will be returning soon!
When you need an escape from the rat race this is the place.
Wonderful property, views and location.
Everything has been thought of.
Excellent property for peace and quiet
We have just had a lovely stay at the cowshed for a week. It rained every day but we visited some fantastic Shropshire castles. The Cowshed was immaculate and had every amenity we could possibly want. Thank you Gill and Bryan for your hospitality.
Thanks for the review, we're pleased you enjoyed your stay here.
Hope you get the chance to explore more of the area in the future.
The best thing about The Cowshed is the view, where you can see Ludlow with its characteristic church tower, and the hills in the west. If you're lucky with the weather, you could be treated to some pretty spectacular sunsets. The cottage was immaculately clean and clutter-free; however, a couple more side tables would have been nice to have a place to put your drink on when sitting down, especially in the sunroom! Gill and Brian are gracious hosts who obviously care about the beautiful land under their stewardship.
Thank you for the feedback, very much appreciated.
