Middle Farm is great, peaceful, animals to admire, super host who lives on site, a great base for walking or touring in Shropshire, walks from the door. Good local pubs and a great place for getting away into peace and quiet.

Additional amenities & feature info
We have one travel cot and high chairs available free of charge. We understand that when you go away you can never really be sure about how well you're going to sleep which is why we have chosen high quality comfortable orthopaedic mattresses made up with Egyptian cotton bed linen and towels. The bedroom/bathrooms are stocked with plenty of hangers, toilet rolls, cotton wool, flannels, locally hand-made lavender soap and a hair-dryer in each bedroom. Fuel is included and our own spring water is supplied to the cottages (tested annually). As the water is pumped from the header tank it gives great water pressure in the showers of each cottage. In the kitchen you can expect to find extras such as clingfilm, foil, kitchen towel, tea towels, bin liners and all washing up requirements. The sitting-rooms have large LCD televisions with side loading DVD player, there are books, maps, games and films to either read, play or watch during your stay.
