“Perfect Holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Peace and quiet, beautiful views, superb accommodation (best bed we have ever had on holiday!) we can't recommend Lower Farm Studio enough.
There are so many walks on the door step and places of interest within easy reach by car that a week was not long enough. Having just had one of England's worst summers for years we were glad of the laundry facilities but even the rain could not spoil our stay.

We do aim to provide an assortment of passtimes if the weather gets really foul, but as youfound there is plenty to do apart from walking. We'll sort the weather a bit better for a future visit ;-)

We've just returned from a superb, relaxing week at Cranberry Cottage (August 2012). This was our first visit, and we were well impressed with both the cottage and the area. The cottage is very comfortable and well-equipped indeed, in a quiet rural hamlet. There are many country walks around, both low-level and in the Stiperstones and Long Mynd hills. We walked over the Stiperstones from the cottage - Long Mynd was a short drive away. The near-by Bog centre offers superb home-made refreshments, a wealth of information about the area, and many cards and crafts for sale. The Bridges pub served us an excellent meal with locally-brewed beer. The weather was kind, less hot than our home in East Anglia, yet with hardly any of the rain which was passing over North Wales at the time. All in all an excellent week. Both the cottage and area are highly recommended.

A wonderfully relaxing place for a break in the Shropshire hills. The Studio is very clean and well equipped and there is plenty of information to help you make the most of the area. Very peaceful and private but plenty of interesting places within easy reach.

Glad you enjoyed your stay. In fact the floor area of the studio and cottage are the same to within 1 square metre, but different layouts give different feel. Studio definitely has best view, being on the first floor, obviously offset by the stairs to get up there!

This was our second stay in this beautiful area. We stayed in the excellent Stiperstones Studio, having previously experienced the larger, but equally good Cranberry Cottage. Both properties are comfortable and well equipped, are set in the most beautiful countryside and have the same helpful but unobtrusive owners (Paul and Jean). The views, especially from the studio, are stunning. It is a great location for exploring the area - which can be enjoyed even in the patchy weather we have endured this summer. We are already planning another stay!

We found Lower Farm a beautiful and restful place to stay and the studio was extremely comfortable and well eqipped. We particularly liked the fact that although the owners were nearby the studio itself is quite private. It's a great place to stay if you are interested in natural history as we are with the Bog and Stiperstones so near.

My wife and I chose Cranberry Cottage because of its perfect location as a good base for walking in the Shorpshire Hills. The cottage was very clean, had everything you would need for a self catering holiday including a woodburner. Paul and Jean are very helpful hosts giving excellent tips on the best walks around the area. Gleanings a local Rural Study Centre runs a wide range of course from guitar workshops to basket making.

We have again spent another few (June) days at Lower Farm Studio. A beautifully appointed apartment with glorious views to the distant hills. Wonderfully traffic-free (well almost) roads, spectacular scenery and many local attractions and dining opportunities. A perfect place from where to explore the Welsh Marches. Friendly hosts and comfortable accommodation. Pity about the weather, but the storage heaters were left on for us!

Room Tip: The Studio for those who are more mobile; it's on the first floor, Cranberry Cottage for the les...
