We came on the recommendation of friends, and it was everything they said and more. The house is lovely, very comfortable, the room (Lawley) is comfortable and well appointed, although I had a peek at the other room and it was lovely as well. The Lawley room has the absolutely best view towards the Shropshire Hills. If you're awake early... More

We went to Lawley House on the recommendation of a friend, and it was even better than we were led to expect. In fact, I'd say it's tied for my favorite B&B ever. Jackie and Jim were fantastic hosts, from the just-baked lemon cake and tea they served on our arrival to producing information and recommendations. The house is very... More

Having tried various places to find accommodation in the area for myself and the in-laws visiting for a funeral, Jackie went above and beyond by arranging a stand in (she was to be away on holiday) to look after us during our stay. Ann was a charming host and looked after our every needs. . . The house was very... More

What a lovely stay, such a beautiful house in great surroundings, ideal for walking or exploring Church Stretton, Shrewsbury or other nearby places. We stayed in the Lawley Room with amazing views and lovely little touches to make you feel at home and what a superb breakfast also. The whole place is such a treat, we were made to feel... More

This was our third visit to Lawley House and already we can't wait for the fourth. The house is beautiful and so are the gardens, with dahlias, sedum, roses and sweet peas in bloom, and breath taking views to the fields and hills beyond. Jackie and Jim welcomed us with tea and cakes, and they now feel like good friends.... More

We love this place. The whole ambiance is extraordinary. The hosts, Jackie and Jim, are a delight and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are extremely comfortable and well equipped. The communal areas, (not that we saw anyone else,) are superb and dressed with impeccable taste. The gardens and views are to die for! We cannot recommend this establishment... More

Thank you Jackie and Jim for being wonderful hosts and for sharing such a lovely place in the middle of south Shropshire! It's so peaceful and the views are stunning. Nothing was too much trouble and their warmth towards us, including my elderly parents, was exemplary. Can't recommend this enough. Four days felt like four weeks!

This bed and breakfast is deep in the country in a delightful house with an outstanding garden. All the facilities are first class, with bedrooms having splendid views. One receives a warm welcome and careful attention throughout one's visit. The breakfasts are all that one could wish for. A very pleasant experience. Highly recommended. P.B.Morice

Lawley House is set in outstanding gardens well off the beaten track in Shropshire. A warm welcome by Jackie followed by afternoon tea in the conservatory set the scene for what could only be described as B&B at its best. Jackie is an old hand at B&B, and it shows in attention to detail, her lovely breakfast and the rooms... More
