“Immaculate dog-friendly comfortable stay”
Reviewed February 6, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

A perfect retreat for couples especially those with a dog! Walks from the door. Pubs are pet friendly and welcoming. Property owners could not be more welcoming - nothing was too much trouble. Wonderful location and views from the property were stunning. Can't wait to return!!

“Home from Home”
Reviewed June 10, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We have just had a lovely week at The Brinks, it really was just like a home from home. Comfortable, clean, great size, and so central for all our needs! And a great little pub at the end of the lane, good food, friendly staff. And lets not forget the chickens, lovely eggs, and very friendly!!! A lovely little welcome pack on arrival too! Many thanks!!

“Loved it!”
Reviewed February 20, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

A very comfortable and very well equiped cottage in a beautiful spot. It was very dog friendly with a fenced garden area and a tiled porch area just inside the front door. We had a very relaxing 2 days with plenty of local walking plus good food and beer in a pub only two minutes walk away.

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Brinks, thank you for sharing your experience with us all. It is great to hear that you had a relaxing time and found everything you needed was to hand at the property - that enclosed area must have been a godsend for your pooch! We certainly hope you make a return visit in the very near future.

“A little piece of heaven”
Reviewed January 3, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We stayed here for an impromptu visit to Shropshire. It is a fantastic 'home from home' experience with Dan and Jo such great people whose motto surely must be nothing is too difficult. The cottage is very comfortable and spacious and the wood burner is a real treat for what was a chilly weekend. It was lovely waking up to the sound of silence, the only sounds being the chickens in the gardens. The pub at the bottom of the drive was a real find, and the beer and food excellent. I would certainly return to this little piece of heaven, thank you so much for looking after us so well.

“perfect peace”
Reviewed December 27, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We found Brinks by chance and we loved it from the start.
This little cottage is beautifully furnished and warm and cosy with a fabulous wood burner.
Walks right on the doorstep and a pub a step away make it a perfect place to relax and unwind.
There are no shops however so it pays to forward plan. The owners provided a nice touch with a welcome basket with bread, eggs from their own chickens, even some doggy treats for our pet. We stayed over Christmas and loved it all. The quiet location may not suit everyone but if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle then this is definitely the place to chose
Thank you for making our stay a pleasure . Must mention the gift of wine to celebrate our wedding anniversary . Thank you

“Just what the doctor ordered”

We found the cottage to be just what the pictures looked like, very clean, cosy with nothing missing that made your stay a home away from home visit. Pub just a short walk away which was very friendly, just make sure you bring with you all your food or buy it at one of the towns near by as there is no local shop for that one thing that you've run out of !!!!!!
Little or no mobile phone reception which is great for a holiday, wifi was also intermittent.
My only bad comment is that there is no shower just a lovely bath with a hand held shower.
