Spacious and comfortable. Garden with summer house and hot tub. WiFi recently added. Very convenient for the interesting town (hilly). Within easy reach of a lot of good hill walking and cycling. Warm reception from helpful friendly owner.
Tub with a view

A very well appointed let with a super hot tub in the garden which allowed views of the Shropshire countryside.
The bedrooms were luxuriously set up with TVs and i-pod docks. The kitchen was satisfactory (a few more utensils would have been useful).
The location in relation to the town was ideal with a five minute walk into the centre. A wide range of hostelries and cafes was present.
The garden was a relaxing place to while away the evening although the road noise was a little intrusive.
Water on every level !

Lovely place, great owner who really cares that you enjoy the holiday. Hot tub was great fun and made for an exciting end to most days for the kids.
