"Warm Welcome in Wysteria Cottage"

We had a wonderfully warm welcome from both Maria Haworth & Hector (her dog), which included a delicious cake & a bottle of wine to help us 'settle in'. The cottage is well appointed, very clean and beautifully positioned to enjoy both the rural scenery & most of the days sunshine, which you can take on the private patio area. Its very quiet and yet there is a pub (the Fox) next door and an excellent Pub-Restaurant (The Horseshoes) in Dorrington, which is only a 5 minute drive away. I would strongly recommend this holiday cottage to anyone wanting a quiet break away from it all !
