Perfect base for exploring Shropshire

  • 5 of 5

This is a very warm and cosy retreat, with everything needed for a stay. There are good walks from the cottage, and also within a very short drive. Very comfy bed, and well equipped kitchen. We very much enjoyed our stay, and would choose it again next time we are up that way. We really liked Church Stretton and the amazing Tuffins supermarket in Craven Arms.
