We had a very happy family break in the middle of February. From the moment of our arrival, the owners could not have been more helpful(we had Tesco delivery problems and no mobile phone signal !) Our party comprised several adults & 3 grandchildren and the house easily accommodated everyone - we used the top floor lounge as a "play/crafts room".
The kitchen was also a warm and practical room with 2 fridges and 2 cookers !

The house was lovely, we were a party of 6 adults and 4 children aged from 5yrs to 6 months. The cottage had everything we needed and was in a lovely location. We were left a welcoming pack which was a lovely surprise and would certainly return there.
An excellent base for a walking holiday

A large property in a rural location a short distance from Craven arms. Aga in the kitchen and wood burner in the downstairs lounge very good for drying wet clothes!Well supplied with all amenities, spacious, a second upstairs lounge a plus. Owners very helpful and friendly, living next door. Clean on arrival, but previous tenants had not properly washed crockery and cutlery: we had to re-do them all.
Relaxing and very lovely

Had a wonderful week. The setting and the house itself are excellent - very quiet country retreat with every comfort you could wish for.
