“Amazing weekend!!”
Reviewed January 17, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

If you are looking for a venue for a large family celebration, then look no further! This cottage along with the other 4 are all finished beautifully and packed with character. The provisions in the kitchen were excellent and the home made cake and wine were a lovely special touch! The games barn or the 'party room' as we called it - is where all 38 of us joined together in the evenings to celebrate my 40th birthday, which was ideal and then the hot tubs were the cherry on the cake. Set in an idyllic location surrounded by countryside and has lots of lovely walks to blow the cobwebs away! The owner, marianne was so helpful throughout the lead up to the weekend- answering all the little questions I had. I can't recommend this place enough - don't think twice about booking your break here.. you won't be disappointed.

“Fantastic place !!!!”
Reviewed April 22, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We recently holidayed in the milking parlour - 10 adults and one child. The barn is very very comfortable with loads of space, a bathroom for every room which is fantastic !!!! The hot tub was so relaxing after spending all day walking all the fantastic trails all on your doorstep. Flounders folly is a must, the views are fantastic!!!! We were even welcomed with a freshly made cake ! All in all this is a fantastic barn with loads of space and very warm and cosy !! Definitely worth a revisit in the future !

We are over the moon that you all had a wonderful holiday at The Milking Parlour, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on your stay there. It sounds like the property was the perfect place for you to call home, especially with the hot tub to enjoy after being out and about in the area - what a treat! We certainly hope you return 'home' very soon!

“Beautiful Cottages”
Reviewed January 3, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed here over New Year with friends. We had two families in the Milking Parlour and another family in the Cowshed. The cottages were beautiful and spotless. I hate the cold and had packed lots of warm clothing but these cottages were very warm and cosy. The owner is very accommodating and set up our dining area so that all three families and children could eat together. Our dogs were also made welcome. The location is lovely and rural and with no mobile signal you really do get a chance to relax away from the outside world. The weather was not kind to us but there was plenty of room to relax in the cottage and the kids made use of the barn play room. We really did have a lovely time and the cottage is so perfect I would love to have a home just like it! Thank you to Marianne for making us feel so welcome and the homemade mince pies were amazing :-)

“Stunning property.”

10 of us stayed in the milking parlour for our annual Christmas getaway. It is isolated surrounded by fields, stunning views and blissfully quiet (until we arrived!!) exactly what we wanted. The accommodation is finished to an extremely high standard. Every room has it's own bathroom, either em suite or next door to bedroom. Well equipped kitchen. All of us loved the house, it was so beautiful and exceptionally designed. The service was amazing, welcome gifts and the owners were accommodating and friendly. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

“Girlie weekend away”

This is an excellent property if you want a break away from it all, surrounded by beautiful countryside, a place where you can fully rest and relax. The standard of the property was high with everything you need. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The weekend was made perfect by the brilliant sunshine and the outside Hot Tub.

This place is beautifully finished, handsomely decorated and the perfect place for our great weekend away with friends including children from 4 up to 15! Facilities amazing, nothing left unthought of, clean and spacious, the hot tub a particular favourite! The beds are the only bed I've slept in which matches the comfort of my own. Could not fault it and the wine, flowers, chocolate and homemade cake a gorgeous touch! Church stretton close by provided the perfect place to hill walk, beautiful scenery and a waterfall included, so much fresh air and great to come back to the log burner and fire. Would love to return!
