The Milking Parlour is a little difficult to find along a narrow lane but when we got there it was well worth it. The place is fabulous! The welcome is warm and friendly with a bottle of wine and a huge, homemade cake. We were on a family holiday 6 adults, 2 children(14 and 10) and 1 baby. The facilities were exellent and cannot be faulted. Enough bathrooms for everyone and more crockery than you could ever need. Some holiday home say they sleep 10 people but only have crockery for 8!
The location was just what we were looking for Ironbridge and Ludlow are lovely places even for children. There is plenty to do snd see but the house is large and comfortable enough to spend the day there and the games room and play field kept the children occupied.
We couldn't get a mobile signal which suited us but there is a land line and broard band in the house.
As for the sleeping fabulous bedrooms. Large rooms all with proper hanging space and hangers!!
This was one of the best holidays we have ever been on. One week and we were all totally relaxed.
fabulous cootage and location

Superb quality build for the barn conversion. Also, plenty of room, and nicely laid out. Very pleasant hosts.
Location good - lots of footpaths to choose from, or even the roads as it's an isolated valley. Plenty of places to go within 10-50 miles.
