"Surprisingly roomy accommodation in a perfect location"
We had a wonderful week in End Barn, finding the property well-appointed, immaculately clean and enhanced by the owners' lovely garden, of which we were allowed shared use. The owners are very kind: present if you need them but never intrusive. The cottage was spacious for me, my husband and our toddler - and easily accommodated my mum and her partner when they stayed for a night too. The location is great: quiet and tucked away, yet only two minutes' walk from the centre of Much Wenlock (which is sleepy, charming and steeped in history). Our two-year-old loved looking out of his window at the highland cattle in the field behind the house (and there's a toddler-friendly, ten-minute walk around the back of it). Much Wenlock is also within easy driving distance of some brilliant places: Ironbridge Gorge, Bridgnorth, Morville, Benthall Hall, Dudmaston, and so on. We could have stayed for a month! One caveat: there is no WiFi at the house, and very little phone signal. You might, of course, view this as a good thing! All in all, highly recommended.
