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: Amidst the beautiful South Shropshire countryside in the lovely Corve Dale Valley sits the pretty village of Diddlebury, just eight miles from the historic market town of Ludlow. Boasting an award winning pub nearby, this peaceful location offers excellent walking and cycling opportunities in the outstanding Welsh Marches and the renowned Wenlock Edge, Clee Hills and Long Mynd Hills. With its listed buildings and medieval street patterns, nearby Ludlow provides a fascinating backdrop for the town's regular street markets. With a 900-year-old castle to explore, Michelin starred restaurants, tea shops, pubs and inns, visitors to Ludlow are sure to find something to do there. Church Stretton, Shrewsbury and Hereford are all within easy driving distance, making this a great place for people looking to explore all this lovely region has to offer.

Great welcome from the owners who were very accommodating to the needs of a disabled guest.
The home had everything needed to provide a relaxing base from which to explore the surrounding countryside.

The Milking Barn was very comfortable, beautifully decorated, and well equipped. The swimming pool very refreshing and kept kids (and adults) occupied for hours. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Garden centre is well worth a visit. If we are holidaying in that part of the country again we will definately book again.
Superb peaceful holiday, lovely cottage

The cottage was spacious and comfortable set in a very peaceful location with lovely countryside views. The owners were very helpful and informative. We enjoyed our fortnight immensely as the cottage is in the middle of wonderful walking country and close to several interesting towns.
The only down sides were the lack of work surfaces in the kitchen and no freezer/freezer compartment in fridge which meant that we had to shop every other day which was a little inconvenient as the nearest shops were a few miles away. There is plenty of space for more work surfaces and a freezer and I believe that the owners do intend adding them which would immensely improve the convenience of the kitchen.
Overall a great holiday and a brilliant place to stay.
