We stayed here at the end of the Vintage Glider Rally at the Long Mynd in which I was taking part. We received a very warm welcome, my quite pregnant partner arrived while I was still on the hill and she was very well looked after until I got down! The room itself I would describe as comfortable and traditional... More

We were lucky to join a free guided tour that was led by a guy with knowledge experience and humour who loved the work he does Well explained as to the way the farm still works the old way What a change from the usual glitz and sound bites Thanks for a great day

I have recently been feeling extremely stressed out due to both my job at Heathrow Airport, and the built up area where my wife and I live here in West London. I realised straight away what the remedy would be for my problems and it didn't involve your traditional medication. The only thing for it was another visit to the... More

I haven't stayed anywhere like this for about fifty years but perhaps for some this would be part of its charm. We booked it because it was four star and found it a little disappointing. The setting is wonderful and Edward and Mary are very nice people. It is really quiet and very convenient for visiting Ironbridge, Ludlow and Church... More

Our interest in this place was piqued by Ruth Goodman's shows. Coming here lived up to our expectations. It was beautiful, the animals were great, and the employees we encountered were gracious. Our daughter enjoyed bottle feeding lambs and watching Charlie get geared up for tedding hay. I enjoyed the walk by the ponds in the shade of such giant... More

I stayed at the Acton Scott B&B due to the close proximity of Acton Scott Victorian Farm which is walking distance. The cottage is 1500 years old and furnished with 1950s furniture. A quaint cottage on a working farm. The stay was pleasant and you must be prepared for uneven floors and very dated furniture and decor. Breakfast was satisfactory... More

Completely recommend this delightful place set in the heart of the countryside. It's wonderfully silent at night, gorgeous views during the day, the rooms are very comfortable and the owners very polite and understanding, especially as we aren't early risers. Had a very relaxed weekend here and would love to come again.

We recently visited church Stretton for a family reunion. We stayed with Mary & Edward at their lovely home, we were made to feel very welcome and although a short visit we would recommend a stay at this old world farm, lovely filling breakfast served with a smile Mary us a lovely Lady.

My wife and I have stayed at this lovely farmhouse B & B on numerous occasions and the reasons for going back time and time again are numerous. Your charming and friendly hosts Edward and Mary are very welcoming and great characters to boot . The setting is absolutely divine and it is the area where Victorian Farm was filmed.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay. It's a very old style farmhouse built in the 1500s. If you're looking for a modern place to stay, this isn't for you. If you like old buildings with creaky floors in a rural setting then you'll love this place. Edward and Mary were great hosts and very knowledgeable... More
