Very , comfy ,clean and well supplied cottage. Convenient for town centre and countryside alike.

  • 4 of 5

We were happy with our stay. Shame about TV and poor wifi reception, but only needed it for our house hunting.

Nice touch with a reception hamper and everyday kitchen requirements.

Would stay again if in area.

Everything provided - a true home from home

  • 5 of 5

The Corn House was an ideal place to relax and to enjoy the wonderful beauty of Shropshire - chosen for the King-size bed and comfortable looking chairs! In fact we didn't venture far and made use of the maps, information leaflets and books of walks in the cottage. A selection of games and DVDs, a sewing kit, and of course the welcome hamper and cakes (amongst other things) showed how much Nora and Simon care about their visitors. We felt welcomed, pampered and appreciated. Thank you.

Very well equipped and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place to stay for two people. Access is either on the ground floor where the bedroom and toilet/shower is or from the upper terrace. The living space is very smart and well equipped and you can step out from it onto a lovely terrace area. Very peaceful and relaxing to sit out watch the red kites. Lovely pub with great meals a very short walk away. Conveniently located for a lot of Shropshire's attractions. Would stay again.
