“Very rural, very peaceful and beautifully designed conversion.”

Reviewed 2 Nov 2012

This was a last minute booking for us - we did not know the area at all. We were assured that it was a lovely location for walking and just relaxing. Completely accurate! In fact probably better than anticipated. The conversion of this old workshop has been done beautifully - real quality carpentry. The bedroom with huge exposed beams is something to behold! It is a very rural location which is great for the peace and quiet - but the lanes are very narrow and the first approach was a bit daunting but the directions were accurate - we just needed to trust them!! It was a pity that one of the local pubs had closed recently but another had reopened and the young couple running it deserve to do well. If you love the peace and quiet of the country this is for you!

“Peace and solitude”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2012

Perfectly equipped and proportioned holiday let for two people. Tucked away in the middle of the Shropshire countryside it feels remote and isolated, but is only a short drive from a couple of villages with a choice of decent pubs nearby. Well placed for access to the Long Mynd, Stiperstones, and Wenlock Edge, it makes a good base for a walking holiday. If you are looking for some quiet down-time then this is the place to stay, but be prepared to wash your car at the end of the week - the local lanes get very muddy from the farm traffic!

“So quiet”

Reviewed 25 May 2012

We absolutely loved our stay here.We could not believe how peaceful the surroundings were.Just a short drive to Shrewsbury with a very handy Sainsburys.About 20 mins to Ludlow which really is lovely.The cottage had everything you could possibly need and the view out the windows and from the patio was amazing.The log fire made it so cozy on winter nights.Would definately stay here again if we return to Shropshire.

cottage was perfect, peaceful surroundings, an ideal spot to explore shropshire.

“Old Workshop review”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2011

For those people who like remote quiet places then this location fits the bill. A 2 mile slow drive down a relatively quiet, single lane/track with twists & turns, blind corners, agricultural machinery, cows etc but the location is well worth the drive. There is a quieter route across country to Church Stretton which I do recommend. This area is great for those that like walking; too many to chose from. Owners of the Old Workshop were helpful & friendly.

“The Shropshire Retreat”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2011

If you really want to unwind away from the city, this is the place to go. Surrounded by pure nature, it is the perfect place to relax. There is a lot to do just a few miles away. On our stay, we actually never left the Shropshire borders. The only thing that was a bit too exciting was the drive to the house. Be aware of oncoming farm traffic on the 2.5 miles single track to the house. But if you are trained in reversing around bends, this is not really a problem, just charming. My driver disagrees ;-) He did not like it.

This was the most wonderful cottage to stay for a holiday in the most beautiful of settings. Unfortunately my husband fell down the stairs during the night on our 3rd night which disrupted our plans somewhat as he sustained severe bruising to his back and shoulder. This has, however, not put us off from staying there again sometime in the future.

“Peace in Picklescot.”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2010

Very nice cottage with a beautiful garden. Ideal for sitting out in during the evening after a long walk. Ideally placed for couples wanting a quiet holiday with access to plenty of walks. Cottage bedroom layout was exceptional. Just beware of the very narrow roads in the area, until you reach Church Stretton.
