"Lovely, lovely, lovely - cannot praise too highly"

What a lovely cottage and what a lovely place to stay. We went ostensibly for the Severn Valley Railway Autumn Gala as the cottage is well placed to access Bridgnorth and the line generally, but had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay in this beautifully appointed annexe. There was everything we wanted and the whole place had been decorated and appointed to a very high standard. Our only problem was getting out of bed in the morning it was so comfortable!!! Absolutely faultless, we cannot wait to return.

"Comfortable, spacious & good quality"

Stayed for 5 nights, found the cottage very clean and comfortable with a huge bedroom & bathroom. All the equipment & bedding was good quality & everywhere was tastefully furnished. Beautiful views from every room over fields with horses. Owners were friendly and approachable (but not obtrusive) Only drawback really was that there was nowhere to eat within walking distance, but quite a few good pubs serving food within a short drive and Bridgnorth has a good selection of shops, takeaways and restaurants. Really enjoyed the stay- it was good to find self catering accommodation bookable for less than a full week - really convenient for us.

thank you for your comments, i am glad you enjoyed your stay, please remember us and come again

"Fantastic cottage in a beautiful location"

Stayed here a year ago too and both times it has been brilliant. Good size place for two people to stay in, really comfy bed / sofas and everything neat, tidy and generally good quality. The surrounding countryside is beautiful (including the view out the back window of the cottage overlooking the fields full of horses), with lots to do in the nearby villages. The Six Ashes pub up the road and the Italian restaurant opposite do great food and the cider house down the lane sells proper (strong!) cider. The cottage is attached to the owners' house but you wouldn't have guessed it being inside - it's all very tranquil and you won't be bothered by anyone. Makes the perfect place to stay for a weekend away or longer, would love to come back again in the future.

thanks rob, perhaps see you again, very welcome
