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: Popular with nature lovers, ramblers, equine enthusiasts or those who just enjoy relaxing in bucolic bliss, Plaish and nearby Cardington offers a quiet haven to get away from it all and enjoy a quintessentially English rural break. The larger market towns in the area offer an urban distraction for those who fancy a break from all that peace and quiet, while other attractions in the area include Severn Valley Steam Railway, Action Scott Historic Working Farm, Stokesay Castle and Ironbridge. Fans of the esoteric arts should note: Cardington was owned by the Knights Templar until 1308.
Additional amenities include: ping pong table, game room, high chair, cooker.Read more

A lovely place for a family get together. Owner very helpful. Site well in the country and peaceful. The children loved the wandering chickens, the pigs and the tennis court. The go-karts were a success with the adult children too! Excellent butcher in Much Wenlock! Lovely countryside to visit.
We had a superb time and would love to go back another year.

The barn was very well furnished although I felt that the lower groundfloor bedroom did not have much drawer space for two people and the ensuite could have had a larger sink to enable you to wash if you did not use the shower.The steps down to the lower floor were rather steep and my elderly father found them difficult to use.On a plus point it was very comfortable and I liked the top floor bedroom with ensuite.It would have been nice to have wifi which comes in useful if you are planning a day out or need contact by email.However the owner was obliging if you needed to use their connection at the house.It was a lovely setting and easy to find.Just wish the weather could have been better!
Lovely & cosy cottage

The cottage is very clean and spacious. We all with 4 hearing dogs for Deaf People love this cottage, had a great time. Nice garden, but could not go into the garden very often due to ongoing raining! The TV is small and old, played the Wii on this TV, but have to be closer as the screen is quite small! The location was not too bad, but a lots of narrow roads and no shop near by. We have done a lots of walking, had a map from the cottage, but it wasn't clear as we got lost few times! Had a great lunch at Ironbridge.

cottage was much bigger than picture shows, very well appointed. The owners and locals very friendly - good advice on local places of interest ie oldest yew tree in local Britian in a local church grounds. For dog owners - you can walk the dogs all over the farm - lots of interesting places for them off their leads. Lots of places to visit \ walk.
