5/5 Excellent

Excellent to have four en suite rooms in a lovely location.
It is a lovely property with excellent amenities and the owners who live next door couldn’t be more helpful. The grounds that come with the property is a smallish area at the front laid with stones and a table with seating for 8. All v pretty, but there is no grass area, which took some getting used to for the dog and may not suit v small children. I would highly recommend this property and will definitely return.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely farmhouse in a great location
Our family so enjoyed our stay here. Victoria was quick to reply to any questions and went out of her way to make our stay as easy as possible. The farmhouse is very comfortable, great to have en suites to every bedroom and everything was as described. Couldn’t recommend it more.

5/5 Excellent

Friends get away
this was a beautiful property in stunning location. Peaceful, quiet and amazing views. Ideal place to recharge your batteries. Local pubs with extensive freshly cooked food. Reasonably priced and very tasty. Lovely.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect place for a relaxing getaway
Came here with a group of friends as it was just what we needed size wise. We was not expecting the property to be as stunning and nicely furnished as it was!! It felt cosy and homely yet very stylish. The house is very remote and isolated which we all loved as it was so so peaceful. The local pub the Bridges is a short walk away and does fantastic food and we reccomend a visit to Ludlow for the day! Victoria and George are the nicest hosts ever who are only an email away and typically reply pretty much instantly. Thank you for a fantastic stay and would definitely reccomend to anyone considering this house :)

5/5 Excellent
