“cottage with a wow factor”
Reviewed January 1, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Wanted to spend a quiet Christmas week in a tranquil cottage and boy we found a absolute gem .courtyard cottage is exactly what we were looking for and more; from the warm welcoming from sue the housekeeper we felt at home instantly.supplied was a welcome pack and the log fire was roaring .further inspection we found everything we needed for a comfortable stay with quality bed linen and towels and they cleanliness of the property was excellent. .next day we met Mark and Adrian the proprietors who are were a pleasure to meet they showed us around the manor house telling us the history and what they had achieved and their plans for the near future brilliant. .lots of places to visit in the area but we didn't venture to far as we were quite contented to stay at the cottage and the lovely meeson manor bye for now see you next year.happy we found the Sykes web site they were brilliant happy New year to you all Steve-Linda.

“A rare and lovely find”
Reviewed August 14, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We chanced upon a cancellation for our stay. We couldn't quite believe our luck!
The property is beautiful and the owners obviously wanted us to have a great time which meant we were very well looked after.
We arrived late after a gruesome road trip and found a farm shop in the village who sold everything we needed for a steak dinner except wine - and our fab hosts provided that!
It is so lovely to be able to walk in the grounds (the grass is so soft it had to be barefoot!)
We fed the chickens and were given a tour of the main Hall which has been lovingly restored and is a haven of genteel living!
It is an ideal location for lots of visits like the Ironbridge museums, Hawkstone Follies and the RAF museum ar Cosford.

“Fabulous Cottage relaxing and enjoyable quality accommodation”
Reviewed June 19, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The hosts were welcoming and so friendly we appreciated the lovely welcome pack with homemade jam which was so delicious we had to buy more to take home. The beds were so comfortable we didn't want to get up in the mornings. This is such a peaceful and tranquil location with so much to see and do if you want to. Everything was provided for a comfortable stay a home from home. We booked this as a birthday surprise for my mum and she was absolutely delighted. We had a great week away made so much more enjoyable by our stay in Courtyard Cottage. A big thank you to the lovely hosts.

“Everything you expect and more!”
Reviewed April 19, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We had an amazing weekend at Meeson cottage. It was our wedding anniversary and we were spoilt with a bottle of bubbly on arrival! A beautiful welcome pack of goodies was there as well with freshly laid eggs, fresh bread and the most delicious home made Jam.
The cottage itself is gorgeous. The pictures do not do it justice. The log burner was wonderful on the cold winter nights too. The owners were so helpful and welcoming. We even got a guided tour of their amazing home. We would recommend this place to everybody wanting a romantic get away. We hope to be back again soon . Oh and the recommended Indian restaurant in the next village was fab! Thanks for a lovely weekend.

“Perfect stay in beautiful cottage and gardens”
Reviewed February 28, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We chose Courtyard Cottage after viewing it on line and after reading the excellent reviews. The cottage was certainly 5 star the cottage is attached to the owners property which is a listed house in lovely gardens. We have traveled extensively in Austria and Switzerland and it was certainly on par with the hotels which have very high standards.The cottage is for three people, so there was my husband and myself and my mother in law. We had plenty of space and the owners had thought of everything we needed. We had a basket on arrival of bread, milk, eggs (from their own chickens) and their home made jam which was excellent. With the month being February it was very cold but on arrival Mark had lit a lovely log fire to welcome us. Courtyard cottage is indeed one of the loveliest ,homely peaceful cottages in the Shropshire countryside. Thoroughly recommended! The owners Mark and Adrian are excellent hosts.(Adrian's jam was fab)

“Excellent”
Reviewed February 9, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed at Courtyard Cottage for 3 fantastic nights. What a find, it is a two bedroom cottage that sleeps 3, it has an ensuite on the master bedroom and a family bathroom.
it is fully fitted with everything that you need for your stay and the owners Mark and Adrian even make sure you have all the essentials to start your stay, bread, milk, home made jam and free range eggs etc.
The cottage is straight off a chocolate box, all exposed beams, log burner, the most luxurious and comfortable bed and first floor gallery overlooking the lounge area.It is beautiful and there is a never ending supply of logs and coal for the fire. You are free to roam the estate as you please and the owners also showed us around the main house which is stunning and will also soon be available for bed and breakfast.
We had a perfect weekend here, it was very quiet and relaxing but also an ideal base to visit Ludlow, Ironbridge etc.
If you are looking for a completely stress free weekend or longer break then this is definatly the place, we have already rebooked for later in the year.

“Wow !!”
Reviewed November 5, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed for a week in this lovely property which, while attached to Meeson Hall is very private , quiet and comfortable. The gardens and the whole of the estate are free for you to walk around,
It definitely has the wow factor. You must be very hard to please if you don't really love this cottage.
The welcome pack was very generous especially the home made jam.
The excellent wood burner made the cottage very cosy and warm on the cold October evenings.
We will definitely return one day.
Book this cottage and you won't be sorry !!
