“Fantastic Rural Retreat”
Reviewed March 25, 2011 for a stay in March 2011

We’ve just spent a wonderful few days in The Studio barn apartment which must have the best view of any holiday cottage we’ve stayed in! A really well equipped place with everything we needed and considering the bedroom and living room are one area, it’s really spacious. Cows, sheep, farm cats and loads of different types of birds (we saw a circling buzzard that was just incredible!) can all be seen from the window sill. There’s a lovely patio area too, but it was a bit cold whilst we were there. There’s loads of walking from the doorstep too, from a half hour stroll to Shelve Pool to a whole day’s walk to the Devil’s Chair on the Stiperstones. And if that’s all a bit too energetic, Ludlow and Shrewsbury are only half an hour away respectively and they both have theatre, history, shopping and fantastic food; the Ludlow Food Centre and Battlefield 1403 (Shrewsbury) are two deli style local food shops with fantastic cafes. Between the walking, the scenery and the eating, we couldn’t have found a better place to stay. Oh, and our cat, Duffy, had a whale of a time too. Four days definitely weren’t enough and we will certainly be back soon!

“Christmas Day 2010 - A True Winter Wonderland”
Reviewed February 7, 2011 for a stay in December 2010

I was visiting my sister for Christmas and time only allowed a stay of 2 nights in the studio. The big freeze was well underway and all around it looked and felt like the Arctic but the owners had put on the heating for us and the place was toasty. The bedroom/lounge was large and spacious with an apex ceiling and the tv stand, wardrobe, full size sofa, chairs and double bed easily fitted in so you certainly aren't cramped for space. It had one of the most comfortable beds of any accomodation I've stayed in for many years and it was spotless. The separate kitchen/dining area had everything you would need for a self catering holiday and the owners had kindly provided us with some milk just in case we hadn't bought any. The adjoining shower room/toilet, whilst not massive, was more than adequate. Underneath the studio is a washing and drying room and although we didn't use it, it would be ideal for keeping muddy boots and wet clothes out of the studio. The property has wonderful views across the valley, is easy to get to, is very peaceful and seems ideally situated for exploring Shropshire either by car, on foot or on a bike. Take a look on Google Earth and Street View and you can see what it's like.
