Beautiful accomm, fabulous location, lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a lovely weekend at The Coach House. The property is immaculate with everything you would want. The swimming pool was a big hit with the children along with Brownie the horse.

The area is stunning with lots to see and do. We will definitely be back to explore more.

Highly recommend.

Wonderful place for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay over the Easter period.The accommodation is stunning topped off by the superb indoor swimming pool which is a good size aswell(long enough for a good swim etc).There are plenty of places of interest just a short drive away,lovely places for dog walking if your bringing your pooch as we did and a visit to Church Stretton and the beautiful Shropshire Hills is a must.The owners Katherine and Andrew are more than helpful if you need their advice or help aswell.We will return!

Wow

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a wonderful 2 night stay at this beautiful property. We were a group of 4 adults and 2 young children and there was more than enough room for all of us.

Katherine and Andrew greeted us on arrival and showed us how to use everything in the house. They were very friendly and made us feel most welcome from the get go.

The house itself is just beautiful, all fixtures and fittings are of a very high standard and it was spotlessly clean.

The pool was lovely, very warm and a huge hit with the kids.

I would whole heartedly recommend this property to anyone. It's excellent value for money. We are already planning our next trip back!

Brilliant property, peaceful, comfy and homely

  • 5 of 5

Had a week in the Coach House over Christmas 2016, and what a lovely week. Bigger than the photos let on, loads of space. A very warm welcome from the owners who explained what was what / where. Couldn't fault a thing, probably one of the best UK holiday lets we've been fortunate enough to find. Swimming pool downstairs was amazing, our daughter loved using that every day, very warm and clean.

I could write much more, but safe to say we will definitely aim to visit again in future for many reasons: location, space, tranquility, comfort and not least the friendliness of the owners.

Thank you very much.

Fabulous place for a short break !

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home after a short break at this wonderful cottage. Katherine and Andrew were lovely hosts, good communications when booking and on arrival it was even better than the pictures .

Welcoming and clean on arrival, and a lovely treat of cake, flowers and bottle of wine - a lovely touch.

The pool and tennis court were a great hit - the pool is situated on the ground floor , with the living accommodation upstairs so no issues of getting to the pool etc. Pool lovely and warm and was a decent size.

We walked the Long Mynd one day and the scenery around the area is lovely - would have loved to stay longer and explore further.

The cottage itself has everything one needed - wi- fi for the teenagers to stay in touch with friends, plenty of kitchen equipment , with lots of glasses , crockery etc.

We have taken many cottages over the years but this is certainly one of the best we have stayed in .

Heep to be back soon as this really does tick all the boxes for us !

A peaceful, comfortable and clean oasis.

  • 5 of 5

The Coach House is even better than the photos suggest. We loved the relaxed colour scheme and spaciousness. The sofas and cushions made watching the Rio Olympics very comfy and being able to have a lovely warm swim at the end of a day's sightseeing was very therapeutic. Our standard of tennis left a lot to be desired but sitting in the orchard on warm evenings was bliss. Although we met beautiful Pixie we didn't gain her trust this time but Brownie was only too willing to put up with our attention for a carrot or two.

We would recommend the Sabrina river cruise in Shrewsbury (book ahead to get seats on top deck), the pretty town of Much Wenlock, Ludlow, RAF Cosford, David Austin Roses nearby at Albrighton, Ironbridge, Powis Castle but especially Blists Hill Victorian Town which was fascinating (book a passport online to include the other attractions too, to avoid queueing).

Katherine and Andy were very friendly without being at all intrusive and the cake, wine and flowers were a lovely welcome.
