Shop and pub 1.2 miles (via ford, longer on the way back) or 4 miles. Note: This property is only suitable for a maximum of 2 adults and does not accept children Region: A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England. Town: The small village of Billingsley is surrounded by beautiful Shropshire countryside and is just seven miles from Bridgnorth. In addition to lots of walking and cycling facilities, the region boasts a wealth of country parks, great houses, museums and picturesque villages. Visitors can enjoy a trip to the nearby town of Bridgnorth - winner of âBritain in Bloom' - which is composed of the High Town and the Low Town connected by winding streets and flights of steps. The town's Saturday street market provides an excellent chance to explore the impressive castle ruins or to take a ride on the funicular railway. This passes what Charles I called 'the finest view in all my kingdom'. With easy access to The Royal Air Force Museum, Ironbridge Gorge, and the towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow, this is an ideal base for an enjoyable break.More

Angie & Tony -:- London
Beautiful remote location on a farm without the usual smells !!! A converted old barn ---with all the amenities. Nice private outside sitting area. Only problem was no Wifi !!! I feel it is very much needed to look up local activities, weather etc so you can plan your days out.

This is a first class rental for two people. Extremely comfortable (wonderful sheets on the bed, duck down pillows) and very classy. Everything was good quality. We've stayed in many rental cottages and all too often you get the owner's 'cast offs' - not here! Clean, tastefully decorated, warm and cosy we found it was a great base to visit the Severn Valley Railway Gala. We can't comment on the walking etc as the SVR was our reason for visiting, but the countryside looked glorious. We will certainly visit again - for the next gala we come to.

The owners were nice and friendly and very helpful if you wanted to know anything about the surrounding areas and where to do sightseeing and places of interest to visit. The only drawback is that there was no shops nearby if you wanted to buy a newspaper or run out of milk or bread. Bridgenorth is the nearest town and it has some nice shops and tearooms.

Liz Gibbs -:- Brighton
This was our first stay with Sykes Cottages but we will use them again. We loved the property - it is a great conversion, very well equipped and comfortable. It is small but was absolutely fine for two people. The location is very quiet and relaxing - you need a car but you are then perfectly located to explore the area - and there is plenty to see - wildlife, historic sites and towns, walks, cycle rides. We thoroughly enjoyed our week.

Cottage in superb location. Ideal for two people, very comfortable and well equipped. We had a peaceful and very relaxing stay. Beautiful area for exploring - immediate location lovely for walks, and loads to visit further afield. Only had a long weekend this time but will definitely book again.

Nick -:- Belper
The Byre, located on the owner's farm enjoys both privacy and seclusion. We stayed over for New Year during a spell of very cold weather but the accommodation was very cosy and warm. We had taken an electric fan heater as a precaution but we didn't need it. The standard of accommodation is excellent we were made very welcome by the owners. Would definitely recommend and may return one day.
