“Fab farmhouse, beautiful relaxing countryside”
Reviewed 30 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We have just had a great long weekend in this beautiful part of the UK. The farmhouse was perfect for our party of 2 families (4 adults & 4 children). Plenty of space, clean, a fully equipped kitchen, a large kitchen table that could sit all of us, comfy lounge, plenty of hot water...). We hadn't been to the area before & were surprised to find such beautiful countryside with loads of walks directly from the house (handy ordinance survey maps in the house) & the lanes quiet enough to take the children out on their bikes. Good pubs within walking distance (about 1hr at a 5yr olds pace avoiding the 'main' road). Plus plenty of streams for them to play in on route. Would definitely recommend.

Thank you for your excellent review. We love such positive comments about the Farmhouse and its environs. Please do come and see us again, tell your friends too that this is also a great place in the winter when you can sit in front of the log fire?

The farmhouse is ideally located to ride or walk the Long Mynd area. The owners George and Victoria could not have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The farmhouse is well equipped and spacious.

“A perfect place to be”
Reviewed 27 September 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this well equipped cottage placed the lovely hills of Shropshire, which offers plenty of room for groups and families, especially a spacious kitchen with a large table that comfortably takes ten. The owners are extremely friendly, helpful and relaxed. Holiday immidiately starts on arrival - the splendid view and the beautiful garden are just charming.A perfect base for walks or car trips to nearby towns of Bishop's Castle, Ludlow or Shrewsbury. Wentnor within walking distance offers the Village Store and two pubs.

We were delighted to receive such a wonderfully positive report about the Farmhouse. Thank you for your kind words however additional thanks must also be given for the perfect condition in which the house was left., it makes our cleaners' life so much easier and greatly improves the preparation time for the next guests. Thank you again.

“Great weekend in a wonderful property”

A wonderful and comfortable cottage deep in the Shropshire countryside. Wonderful walking area and a short drive from Bishops Castle and A LITTLE FURTHER AFIELD, Ludlow and Shrewsbury.

This is an exceptional property, immaculate and wonderful for a get away from it all break.

Our host were easy to deal with and were warm and welcoming.

We went as a group of couples who enjoy walking. But this property would suit a family group too. Wonderful, fully equipped kitchen if you want to self cater. With some nice pub restaurants a short drive away.

We stayed at England Shelve for two weeks during which pour daughter got married at Norbury Church.
The whole house is equipped for a small army and the perfect place for a relaxing stay. We were even able to entertain some 12 American in laws in the kitchen, which you can't say about most holiday houses! Our American guests loved the views and the tranquility of the area, whilst we were able to enjoy the comfort and endless supplies of hot water in the lovely bathroom.
Thank you George and Victoria.
