My husband discovered Lawley House in 2010 and I have been longing to go back ever since.
A birthday celebration gave the perfect excuse and once again, we were bowled over by the warm welcome from Jackie and Jim, personal service and great conversation.
But what makes a weekend here extra special is the house and setting; the house is one anyone would love to live in, the furnishings are superb and the views spectacular.
The conservatory and drawing room are just right for curling up with a good book in winter or summer, spring or autumn.
This time we had the newly-refurbished Wrekin room with a huge bed, beautiful furniture and curtains, wonderful view and luxurious bathroom with thick towels warming on a heated rail.
Everything is finished to a high standard.
There is real milk in the fridge (no plastic sachets here), a wide choice of hot drinks and biscuits.
The dining room is beautiful too and breakfast is served on fine china.
It is tailor made to the individual's requirements: my husband enjoyed the cooked fare, while I had the fruit, yogurt, toast and homemade marmalade. There is plenty of juice and tea too.
Lawley House is the perfect place to stay if you want a rural setting and to truly "get away from it all", yet it is close to Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Much Wenlock and Ironbridge. (A 4x4 vehicle is advisable to negotiate the narrow lanes in winter).
I can't wait for our next visit.
