Region: A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was “the quietest place under the sun” and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.
Town: The small village of Billingsley is surrounded by beautiful Shropshire countryside and is only seven miles from Bridgnorth. The area offers excellent walking and cycling routes, as well as boasting easy access to country parks, great houses, museums and picturesque Shropshire villages. Visitors can enjoy a trip to the town of Bridgnorth - winner of the 'Britain in Bloom' award - which is comprised of the High Town and the Low Town connected by winding streets and stairs. The bustling Saturday street market is an excellent way to explore the town or alternatively, it is possible to visit the impressive castle ruins and take a ride on the steep funicular railway. With easy access to The Royal Air Force Museum at Cosford, Ironbridge Gorge and the popular destinations of Shrewsbury and Ludlow, this is a wonderful spot for a family holiday.

A venue which exceeded our expectations, starting with friendly and helpful directions, a great welcome and even new-born lambs! Ideally situated for the Severn Valley Railway and key Shropshire tourist spots, with lovely hidden village pubs. High class furnishings, scrupulously high standards of cleanliness, ample supplies of kitchen utensils and comfortable bedrooms, not to mention the longest lounge/dining room area we have seen. No wonder many guests regularly return. We can unreservedly recommend this venue.

Wonderful restful holiday cottage
Left on 10/30/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | Jo Pryor
This cottage has everything you could possibly need. It really is a home from home. My son enjoyed the fishing very much and it was easy to keep an eye on him from the cottage.
There are so many things to see and do. Close to many beautiful areas for walking and exploring. Shops are not too far away. Lots of nice pubs in the area to eat out .. we managed to eat out every day!
We had a totally relaxing holiday, going somewhere different every day and relaxing in the evening. Highly recommended.
Lovely quiet location

Lovely cottage very well equipped owners on site and very accommodating. Private garden and decking great for relaxing. Near Severn valley railway and Bridgenorth which we fell in love with.
fabulous barn with excellent views

First class property in a very private location. The barn had everything that was needed to enjoy a escape from everyday life. Any help and advice was available just across the courtyard at the farmhouse. Superb countryside, fantastic wildlife and views. Highly recommended escape!

A peaceful countryside location.

The cottage was very well equipped and very tastefully decorated.
On arrival, the owners were a bit disconcerted by the size of our dog. (a very laid back Great Dane) and there wasn't an overabundance of warm welcomes.
The driveway to the cottage had quite a few potholes as it was on a working farm. However the quality of the accommodation and the surrounding countryside more than made up for any shortcomings and we had a lovely stay.
A wonderful way to see 2011 in

A cosy little place to stay. The owners are more than helpful with anything that you need. The cottage itself is full of character with the fire and beams in the ceiling. It is certainly somewhere i'd consider returning to.
we could live here

Perfect in all aspects, could move in tomorrow. Setting tranquil and so much to see across the valley. So quiet it really made the ideal holiday spot for us. The nearby pub served super food and great beer, Town Crier was a real choice ale. Also so close to Bridgnorth, not to busy but everything available, especially the amazing Severn Valley Railway. Hidden Gem!
Great holiday experience

Lovely place, setting, people.
Only reservation is the single loo in the bathroom.
Otherwise beautiful , tranquil spot, ideal for a peaceful holiday, but in an area where there is lots to do.
The very best accomodation
Left on 12/03/2009 for a stay in May 2009 | P.C. Senior
This barn conversion is a delight, and the Williams could not have been more helpful. We fell in love with their wonderful friendly dog!
The accommodation was extremely comfortable and very well equipped.There is a great view over a lake and a valley from the sittingroom or the deck outside
The location is very convenient for a lot of the South Shropshire attractions, near the Severn Valley Steam Railway and many grand country houses. We really couldn't find fault with anything and look forward to going back there one day.
Most relaxing, perfectly placed holiday home
Left on 12/02/2009 for a stay in September 2008 | Wilcoxson40
We had a week at Billingsley and the cottage was excellent. The owners couldn't have been more helpful or friendly (as were the dogs)! The home was of an excellent standard, extremely comfortable and superbly furnished - I'd recommend this to anyone wanting an out of the way, peaceful break where you can sit on the decking and watch the birds and wildlife with a glass of wine. The location was perfectly situated for surrounding villages/towns in Shropshire. We'll certainly return :-)
