Due to the current situation with Covid and lock downs we couldnt go in the end but Hilary was in emailing me and kept hold of our booking for as long as possible, in the end the booking was moved to Feb but this depends on lockdowns, so we shall keep moving the booking on. Hilary so far has been brilliant and very understanding and quick to reply. Just Brilliant We shall be going eventually, once the situation improves. One of the best people we have booked with . Thank you so much

Firstly, the people there are amazing, there were no taxis and it's a 40min walk from the station but lots of people offered us lifts. The accomodation is very cute with a double bed and a very comfy double sofa bed. Nice shower, great TV, we were pleasantly surprised to see the kitchen stocked with tea, coffee, milk etc. Great pub nearby - The Bull and Dog is a short and v pretty walk away, along roads or fields: hosts provide lots of maps for walks and recommend a safe route, they even provided HI-Vis jackets to be seen in the dark We went for New Year and it was great, 11/10 would recommend

What a lovely little place. Spotlessly clean, well equipped with all you need, and nicely decorated. Nice little touches, including providing bread, milk, orange juice, and as we'd booked it for a 40th Birthday a little note saying Happy Birthday and a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge. Lovely large shower, and modern bathroom. Nice patio area with BBQ and large open garden. Quiet, peaceful location.. lovely and relaxing. Wem is around 3 miles away, and Whitchurch around 6 miles away. Really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

small cottage with limited storage facilities in the bedroom. Big enough for 2 but more would struggle. Came for the walking but the local footpaths are overgrown and in some cases blocked and would be difficult to find even even with and OS map.

Very small but compact 1 bedroom cottage all on the same floor. Very hard bed, perhaps a new mattress may help? Secure garden turned out not to be...our 14 year old dog got out and was out all night. Eventually found by a lovely farmer, so keep watch when letting dog out

Thank you for your comments. We have had a couple of recent comments about the bed so have now purchased a new mattress. We are sorry your stay was marred by your dog getting out into our neighbouring farmers field. The garden is described as enclosed rather than secure; it is bordered by fences and hedges and this is the first instance of a dog “escaping” in four years of letting. We suggest dogs are not let out unattended, especially at night, when the noises and smells of the local wildlife (fox, rabbit, badger!) is very tempting and we will make sure future guests with dogs are made aware of this on arrival.
