“Quiet, clean, well equipped cottage”
Reviewed May 11, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Enjoyed our three night stay, cottage is perfect for 2. Visited Hawkstone Follies and Hodnet Hall which were both nearby. John and Hilary were discreet and would be happy to provide anything else if needed.

Would recommend that something be done about the entrance and exit onto the main road. It is dangerous. The view is obscured
However the cottage was great

Management Response
4 Aug 2015
We are glad you enjoyed your stay in Piggery Cottage but are sorry that you found exiting onto the road dangerous. It is a typical rural B road, most of the time quiet and at particular times of the year visibility is obscured due to the hedge growth. From late July onwards the tractors come round to trim back the hedges (once the fledglings have flown) and visibility is better so you probably had the worst week! We have found that it is advisable to exit with car windows down to listen for oncoming traffic (easily heard due to the quiet area) before moving on to the road. We will make sure we pass these suggestions onto future guests.

“Lovely little cottage”
Reviewed July 5, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I have just returned from a lovely weekend away at the piggery cottage and absolutely loved it. The cottage is nice and small and is ideal for 2 people. It has a lovely big garden and is about a 5 minute drive from Wem.

The owners provided a little welcome pack of bread, butter and milk which was a nice touch and the cottage is well fitted out with all the mod cons needed for a feeling of being home from home. We were lucky enough to have nice weather and we sat outside on the patio and had a BBQ, which was all very relaxing. The cottage is well appointed and has sky tv too if you ever wanted to just have a quiet night in.

We would love to have stayed longer too and we will be returning in the near future

“Perfect base for Shrewsbury & Wales - a little 'home from home'”
Reviewed May 21, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Great little place for us - two & a dog. Nice big garden for the dog to roam in. Rooms were comfortable and had everything we needed for a few days away from home.
We only met Hilary who was very friendly - we didn't have any problems but felt we could have contacted her at anytime (she's in the house on the grounds).
Appreciated the little welcome pack :-)
