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 small rural village of Alberbury sits in pretty countryside, 9 miles from Shrewsbury. There is so much to do in this area, from the ten museums of Ironbridge Gorge to the abbey, castle, shops and restaurants of Shreswbury. There are many National Trust properties within easy reach of Alberbury, including Attingham Park, Powis Castle, Chirk Castle and Erddig. Ludlow, with its castle and timbered buildings, is a lovely town for a stroll and a refreshing cream tea, or step back in time with a trip to Acton Scott Working Farm, seen on TV as â€˜The Victorian Farm'.

We had a great time at the old sheep shed and it was perfect for my son who has mobility problems too. Not only is there a hot tub, pool table, and sauna for sole use, but also the kids can also enjoy Jimmys play barn and the indoor badminton court area with wooden play area which was a real hit for my boys. Will definitely be returning - wonderful place.

Have to say this place was amazing. Extremely high standard, well maintained, owners couldn't be more helpful or friendly. An entire week of relaxing and unwinding with no streetlights and no external noise. Even the animals were friendly - farm dog moved in with us for most of the week. Will definitely be making a return visit

This cottage was great value for money and absolutely beautiful. We were attracted to this particular cottage by the hot tub but the pool table and sauna were also welcome additions! All of the rooms were beautifully decorated to a high standard and there was plenty of space for us all. There were local walks and it was easy to find. The owners and their pets were extremely welcoming and accommodating, everything we needed was there. I will definitely visit again and will recommend to all my friends, I just hope they don't put the price up!!

Good location, very friendly owners, who took the time to explain all facilities, only small problem was a small fridge freezer, if staying for longer than a week ( which we would do next time ) might be a problem, but owners did say they would put items in their freezer for us. Overall a great place to stay, even better in the Summer
