    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    The Zen chalet is set in it's own , private, Oriental style garden in a corner of the owners' property. Ideal as a base from which to explore Secret Shropshire and the stunning Mid Wales borders.
    Be wowed by the garden, with a brook running right under the bedroom window. Frogs and newts spawn in the pond in early spring . A sight to behold, if a little noisy! The koi will join them in May/June whilst irridescent dragonflies hover over a myriad of irises and water lilies during the summer months. Relax in the Tea- house , keeping cosy out of the wind and rain and be part of nature. Enjoy a BBQ on a sunny summer evening, surrounded by hundreds of twinkling solar lights... MAGIC!

    The Eastern themed Zen is comfy and clean. The kitchen/diner is well equipped. The bedroom has a doub...

Jan and Skip were the best hosts we could've wished for. We came to stay for a week with our Siberian Husky 'Yogi', Jan was worried the two of us plus dog, would be a bit too 'cosy' in the chalet, but it was perfect for us! Jan and Skip were so helpful with their advice on places to visit...


Management response:

We are so glad that you all enjoyed your stay here. I admit to being slightly concerned when the "small dog" turned put to be a huge, fur ball of a husky! However I needn't have worried. As responsible owners, you had brought all that was required such as bedding and old towels. Very useful after a roll in the... more

In a busy month away from Australia, our week at the Zen was a real holiday. From the Australian flag flying at the entrance to the warm welcome from the hostess and the parking instructions from her husband, we knew we were in for a happy and relaxing holiday. The garden is beautiful. The brook babbling through the garden is... more
