“Wonderful”
Reviewed August 23, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Four adults and two children stayed in the Barn for a week. We all had our own space and could be together comfortably as a family for meals and evening entertainment. . It was well appointed and offered a variety of games and videos. The surroundings were beautiful. It was so quiet. The children loved seeing the pigs, hens and sheep. There is so much to do on the farm and in the surrounding area. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for Sam. Thank you.
The home produced pork was superb and you could follow this from happy pig to table!

“Great stay in the Shropshire Hills!”
Reviewed July 7, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Upon meeting with Sam, the owner, you are made to feel so very welcome to Middle Farm Cottages. We stayed in Gooseyard, a cosy self catering cottage for two, decorated in just the right style (country cottage), 'everything' is thought of for you to use during your stay! During your stay you get to meet a flock of chickens, sheep and Sam's special selection of pigs! Middle Farm Cottages is a place to escape to, in beautiful countryside, not far from the Welsh border and in general an area to enjoy the slower pace of life. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and may we wish Sam & her family continued success with the holiday let business. We'll be back and certainly book a stay in Gooseyard Cottage again!

The Barn exceeded expectations. It is a beautiful barn conversion that provides spacious and comfortable accommodation with real touches of luxury in the furnishings and decoration. We wanted for nothing and Sam ( the owner) couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. Go! You won't regret it.

“A beautiful location and a fantastic stay”
Reviewed January 18, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Stayed in 'The Barn' as a group of 6 (3 couples) over New Year 2015/16. The Barn is a fantastic size for a cosy, yet comfortable break in the countryside. It is really nicely decorated, beds are really comfortable and is generally very well equipped for everything you could need.

Sam was a great host and the produce from the farm delicious - was lovely to see the baby piglets and the beautiful Shire horses that are kept next door!

As many have said, Middle Farm is not far away from some beautiful walks - we would recommend walking over Long Mynd (followed by lunch at Jemima's Kitchen in Church Stretton!)

Definitely worth picking up supplies before arriving if you intend to cook in The Barn as it is a little way to the local Sainsburys (Shrewsbury) and Co-Op (Church Stretton)

Overall a fantastic stay and break from the city!

“Lovely cottage in a fantastic location”
Reviewed January 11, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed at Daisy's Place for a week over New Year and couldn't have asked for a better escape from London life. The cottage was beautifully presented with more than enough space for two people and very well-equipped for any self-catering you might want to do. Sam's sausages, bacon and eggs were delicious and come highly recommended - only wish we could get hold of them in London.

As others have said, the location is stunning - just a couple of minutes drive from Long Mynd and within easy reach of Church Stretton and plenty of good walking and pubs. We'll certainly be back another time and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you Sam and Duncan!

“Superb accommodation, very homely and beautifully done”
Reviewed November 20, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

person found this review helpful

Six of us, three couples, stayed the weekend 14-17 November in Barn Cottage, the largest one. The accommodation was beautifully created, all exposed beams and mood lighting.

We cooked extensively, and found the kitchen well equipped, including razor sharp knives (a rarity in holiday cottages) .

The location is remote, be warned, it's a long 4 miles to Church Stretton, and the road is narrow. Church Stretton is a nice little place, with some interesting antique shops, several places to eat, and a HUGE Co Op supermarket.

All the bedrooms were warm and comfortable, and all six people were very happy with it.

Some people have commented on Wi Fi and mobile reception. Our O2 mobiles had reception from time to time indoors, OK outdoors. The Wi Fi is affected by thick walls IMHO in Barn Cottage, and was patchy.

The hosts were very helpful and personable, and top bacon and eggs!
