“You can never have enough of this place!”
Reviewed 7 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Service second to none, friendly helpful and can never do enough for you.
The property is still as fresh as it was when we first went 3 years ago. Clean, new and comfortable.
It is comfortable enough just to laze around in or superbly located for family orientated activities such as Ironbridge, Chester Zoo and historical Shrewsbury, all within very easy reach.
The village is nice and quiet with some very nice walks including a very quick one to the local pub with good food and ales.
There is nothing to not like about this cottage and everything to like.
If you want somewhere in Shropshire pick this or the smaller property.

“The Shippon was quiet, peaceful, spacious with a touch of luxury”
Reviewed 2 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed at The Shippon for the half term break. We had 2 families of 4 plus an additional relative. It is an ideal property for 2 families as there are 2 wings. All rooms are equally attractive and comfortable. We all loved the oak floors, doors and underfloor heating.
The mezzanine floor has a wonderful view and is a good area for additional sleeping space (with sofa bed).
The views of the sheep and cattle grazing was a treat. The visitor information was informative giving a couple of walks with instructions, straight from the cottage. There was a map and information about the Wrekin ( a hill / mountain in the locality), which we used and it was handy to have.
The children enjoyed the selections of books and games (including Wii) during the stay.
We enjoyed a meal at the pub in the village, The food was good and reasonably priced.
Trips out - we visited the Ironbridge Museums, with Blist Hill and the Jackfield Tile Museums being particularly good. Also The Monkey Forest at Trentham was well worth a visit. Ironbridge, Trentham and Shrewsbury are all approx 30 mins away by car.
Thank you to Sarah and family for providing such wonderful accomodation.

It was great to meet you all including the children in the cupboard which still makes me laugh! There is so much to do in the area & it looks like you managed to keep everyone entertained. I also enjoy the monkey park as it is great for all ages and Trenthan gardens & Harkstone Follies are also excellent for active children. Thank you for taking the time to write a review & we would love to see you all again.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

What a gorgeous home from home! Was extremely impressed with the communication from Sarah the owner from the moment we booked until we left. The location was ideal for exploring with the kiddies, travelling to places such as Drayton Manor/ Thomas Land, Alton Towers, Waterworld etc. Lovely walks (plus directions provided in info pack) surrounding the cottage. Idyllic outlook and perfect for a large family or group of friends. Would definitely visit again and would recommend staying here undoubtedly!
