Town: Rosehill is a small North Shropshire village 3 miles from the town of Market Drayton, and stands beside both the River Tern and the Shropshire Union Canal. Market Drayton is renowned for hosting one of the liveliest weekly markets you will find, and the town centre boasts many delightful 16th and 17th century half-timbered buildings including a variety of pubs, restaurants and tea rooms. Close by is Ellesmere, with its beautiful meres (lakes), a variety of National Trust mansions and gardens including Attingham, Hodnant Hall, Hawkstone Park and the lovely medieval towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow.

No problem with the service, very friendly. Cottage was cosy, even though it was winter. Lots of bedding to keep u toasty warm. Fishing according to my husband, was enjoyable. Something for us both to do with the village a short drive away. Close to plenty of day trips, found it quite central for most things.

The cottage is something to recommend to other people. It's as if you are staying in your own home, so complete. We would recommend the owners to include the possibility of renting a bike with the cottage. It is the only thing we,Dutch people, missed. We would certainly like to come back here.It's a pity that there is a noisy road running nearby. The location itself is beautiful but has been spoilt by the loud traffic.
great weekend, comfortable cottage, good location

A great cottage with a lovely vista over a lake. Good location with several things to do nearby. we had fun running through a maize maze and hiking a trail. the weather was amazing too! There were a few spiders in the house and it would have been nice to have a few more of the basics (oil for cooking etc), or working wifi / ipod dock etc.

A very pleasant well furnished cottage with comfortable beds and good facilities. But no loo rolls, soap or dishwasher tablets, be prepared to bring your own!
