We stayed hear in the depths of winter but had a wonderful time. This is a beautiful barn conversion on a working farm. The property is spacious and pleasant with and the owners were extremely welcoming and even took our children to collect eggs and feed the chickens! Though not obvious from the images there are great views from the property over towards the south Shropshire hills and I imagine it is very beautiful and peaceful in the summer. Thanks for a great stay - we will definitely return.
Just back from another enjoyable stay at Sutherlands Drift. Lots to do in the area including the Ironbridge museums and Severn Valley Railway. Nice walks around the farm and friendly owners at the property. We will be back.
I was invited to join a group of transgender friends that had booked this cottage for a few days. The cottage had been hired to spend some time together relaxing and socialising. The farm is a working farm, so for discretion, the curtains facing the farm yard were kept closed during the day. One of our friends left to return home and was confronted by somebody from the farm who was very unpleasant and intimidating. This person made accusations that we were bomb making or involved with drugs and demanded to know why the curtains were closed and why we were not going out. Our friend reported back to the group still at the cottage. A phone call was made to the farm owners about this incident and to explain why we had closed the curtains and we invited them to come to the cottage for a drink and to meet us. This didn’t happen.
The following evening we had a visit from the same man (who we assume to be the son of the farm owner) at 7 o’clock at night, banging on the door of the cottage. Upon opening the door he again proceeded to aggressively confront us again saying we had upset his family and demanding an apology.
This behaviour is totally unacceptable. So if you want some private time, or are in a minority group that might contain vulnerable people, I would avoid this cottage and its owners. It appears that they want to know and see what you are doing. That aside, although the cottage and location are good, the cleanliness is poor. The bathroom fittings were rather careworn and under the bed was thick with cobwebs.
