“A great place to relax and use as a base for trips in Shropshire.”
Reviewed 29 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016
people found this review helpful

We stayed at the bakers retreat for a week in July 2016 - If you are looking for a relaxing break in a place which has modern comforts in a building full of character with oak beams etc then this is the place to be. The best recommendation I can put forward is if we ever visit Shropshire again for a holiday we will look no further than the bakers retreat - Excellent value for money with excellent facilities.
With regards the place I would say if you struggle with steep stairs then look elsewhere - We managed easily but an older person would need to take care on the stairs to the bedrooms- the official description does make this clear and you should consider this. The beds were extremely comfy , The temperature was maintained nice and warm throughout our stay , The kitchen is very well fitted out with fan oven gas hob, even a washer and dishwasher ( although we didn't use the last two ourselves) there is no microwave but there are pans available.
The living room is fitted out with 2 modern comfy sofas and a large screen TVs with free view
Wi if was said to be intermittent as it is shared with the cafe below however I found no problems at any time - The cafe closes around 6pm so the wifi signal is strong in the evening
There is a roof top patio great for early evening drinks!. The bathroom looks reasonably new - The shower is great with good pressure and plenty of hot water. if you like a bath the tub is very big and does take a while to fill. The owner provides lot of towels which are very large . The owner welcomed us with a loaf of bread, milk etc in the fridge , fresh flowers on the dining table and the bonus of a parking permit for free parking on the car park nearby ( 3 - 4 mins walk) there is a "budgens" supermarket 50 yards away ( used to be the coop) so no need to bring loads of food with you.

A great place to stay - I thoroughly recommend the bakers retreat
