“Lovely views and quiet location.”
Reviewed December 1, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Well equiped and a home from home. Relaxing break with good walking and pubs closeby.
Our dogs loved the paddock for walks and nearby Lyth Hill and Church Stretton.

“Week in a Country cottage away from Australia”

Wonderful place for our family to stay, very peaceful NO traffic ,lovely hosts, great location for us to catch up with family and investigate local Churches for family history from Australia. Local shop & Pub in Dorrington very helpful and friendly atmosphere, good to chat with the local people. Only one minor issue be prepared to pay for your electricity usage it cost us 46 pounds for the week , not explained prior to booking, for the week in January, you are actually paying for the heating and hot water, whilst we were only on the site to sleep otherwise highly recommended.

Thank you for your kind review, we do charge for electricity during the winter period at cost and this was a particularly cold spell. The charge is detailed on the Holiday Lettings website.
