I agree with everyone else: this is a first class B&B! We stayed in the upper room in the barn, and were blown away by all the 'mod cons'. I don't think you'd find better bathroom facilities in a five star hotel. We were also delighted to find a delicious homemade gluten-free cake on our arrival, as well as some... More

This is a wonderful B & B full of luxury - fabulous rooms with amazing views in wonderful Shropshire. Our second visit with bikes - perfect place to explore the 'blue remembered hills'. The breakfasts are terrific - set one up for the day and only 10 miles from Ludlow and v close to other good places to eat. Highly... More

We stayed just 2 nights and it was excellent. We stayed in the pretty downstairs rooms in the barn - full of light with cows peering in from the field behind . Karen is very welcoming- even to our black labrador. The room had facilities for making proper coffee- a rare treat.Sleep came easily in the quiet Shropshire countryside in... More

I have been wanting to stay here since I discovered Hopton House on Twitter over three years ago, and met Karen at a tweetup when staying in a holiday cottage nearby! We loved everything about it: the huge room (lower one in the barn), the attention to detail (leaf tea in the room, a rare treat!), the grounds and view,... More

Our second visit to Hopton House and it is still the best B&B we've enjoyed in the UK. Relaxed, peaceful, wonderful breakfast and fabulous hosts. An absolute treat. Shropshire is a hidden gem in England and Hopton House is a gem within a gem.

My wife and I have stayed twice now in the Paddock room both times, and from the moment you pull up outside it's just like visiting friends.

Great accommodation and great food....the basics of a successful B&B. However it's the extras which make Hopton House so unique. We stayed for 3 nights in The Barn which is situated across the yard from the main house, where you take breakfast. We had a huge bed, a sofa placed to watch TV, a silent fridge which was very handy,... More

Thank you for lovely comprehensive review. We do appreciate it that you've taken the time to write one. I'm glad you enjoyed the Barn Room and all of the little goodies we supply.
