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: The village of Leighton goes back many centuries and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1087. It is only four miles from the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, home of the world’s first bridge to be constructed of iron, built between 1777 and 1779. The Ironbridge Gorge is situated in a beautiful wooded valley and the village of Leighton is home to a variety of public houses, restaurants, tea-rooms and shops, and a collection of separately themed locations make up the Ironbridge Museums. The National Trust Properties of Attingham Hall and Park are close by as well as the fascinating Wroxeter Roman City and Vineyard. With a wealth of historical attractions and a host of outdoor pursuits, this area has a lot to offer visitors at any time of year.

We stayed here in late January for 10 days as we had to be in the area for family and did not fancy the time in a hotel (or the cost).
We followed the directions from the website to the letter and found the farm straight away and were greated by Derek and Molly the Collie.
The cottage was all ready for us and warm and we had a lovely homemade cake awaiting our arrival.
All the utensils required were in the kitchen and the on site laundry facility proved so useful too.
The area is central to not only the ironbridge gorge museums but also the shopping areas of Telford and Shrewsbury a little further away.
The Wrekinis a short drive away for walking and the lanes are relatively quiet too.
All I all we wiould highly recommend the dairy

Finding this place was the only initial problem, but it was worth it. Very close to Ironbridge gorge museums. Very friendly owners.
Fantastic time in Shropshire

Accommodation was excellant and a warm welcome from the owners. Cottage was ideally situated for Ironbridge and it's museums and also Ludlow and Shrewsbury. Would certainly recommend The Dairy cottage.
