Pleasant and helpful owners. Unobtrusive yet approachable.
Cosy, comfortable and well equipped accommodation. Shower room could have done with shelf(ves).
Location generally OK but a fair distance from shops and pubs which restricted drinking if driving. Good pubs in Woolaston with friendly landlords and customers.Good bus services to other towns.
The website description did not mention Woolaston as being nearest village and failed to mention that Stourton has no facilities whatsoever.
Excellent place to stay

This is an extremely comfortable, self-contained cottage with all mod cons. We stayed there in the winter time and the gas central heating ensured that we were always warm and comfortable.
The owners live next door and are very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. However, if you want to keep yourself to yourself, they will fully respect that and you wouldn't even know they were there.
The cottage is ideally located for exploring the surounding areas such as Worcestershire, (Worcester is about 20 miles away), Shropshire (a visit to Bridgnorth and Ironbridge are a must) and is conveniently located for access to Stourbridge Junction station for trips into Birmingham.
Our dog was welcome to stay which was a big bonus and there are lots of nice places to walk there. Within walking distance are walks along the canal-side and the old sand quarry which is surrounded by woods and very quiet. Within greater walking distance, (although more realistically a short drive away), is the National Trust parkland of Kinver Edge, with its many walks, woods and even the old cottages built into the sandstone rocks.
We weren't staying there for a holiday, but there is a surprising amount of history around that area along with nice, quaint villages and rural surroundings all within easy striking distance.
