Fabulous location and excellent service.. I would have liked to have a saucepan to use as there was only a frying pan, other than this it was perfect I will definitely be returning and I have already recommended to friends and family

The Cart House was a wonderful place to stay and is highly recommended.. The owners have provided everything you could possibly need to a high specification and top quality. The setting is very good and very peaceful. A real home from home. Hope to stay again.

We had a fantastic short break in the Cart House and would definitely recommend it.. The cottage itself is extremely comfortable and very well equipped. We really appreciated a number of things, like how easy it was to regulate the temperature of the rooms, how well equipped the kitchen was, and how comfy the bed was. Often at least one of these things is a let down, but they were all great. The hot tub is amazing - especially on a clear night with amazing views of the stars. The owner and manager are really friendly, and the whole site has a very relaxed feel. The location was excellent for access Shrewsbury and areas we like to hike in like the Long Mynd. We'll definitely come back!

The owners could not have been more helpful, struggling with a disability scooter up an edging within 10 minutes a ramp had been put in place.. Julie the site manager was lovely very friendly and helpful. Would not hesitate in returning and also recommending this quiet peaceful holiday cottage.

Spent a week in the Cart House and loved every minute of it.. The staff were all really friendly and the facilities brilliant. The Cart House itself was a perfect way to find peace and tranquility in complete privacy. The hot tub was well used and gave you a lovely afterglow. We even gained a dog for quite a lot of the week and will miss Millie. We would certainly recommend a visit to the Saffron House Indian restaurant and also the Hand and Diamond pub - the food was fabulous in both. We will certainly be returning for more - thank you.

The position of the cottage was perfect, the overall standard was very high. The owners were very friendly and everything you could possibly need was catered for. The countryside is beautiful and very peaceful, the cottage was very comfortable and the garden was a pleasure to spend time in.

In a quiet and peaceful location and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The play barn is an added bonus especially if you're into pool or air hockey. Also, having your own private hot tub is lovely, after long walks it is nice to come back and relax in it. We really loved staying here and would definitely visit again.

The owners/managers of the properties were always more than happy to help. The cottage was cosy and the hot tub was a dream. Perfect holiday.

This cottage was excellent and even better than our expectations. The people were friendly and very helpful and made our stay even better. The position of the cottage could not be faulted and our every wish and need was thought of. I would highly recommend these cottages to anyone.

Mrs Elliott

The property was a wonderful place to stay, very peaceful and tranquil. Made to feel very welcome by the owner and shown round on arrival. Property was a great place made even better by the hot tub in the garden which was used a lot during our stay. Will be wanting to go back again in the future. Lots of things to do and see in the area too. Will be recommending to friends and family.

Had a fab break, it was relaxing and just what both myself and my husband needed. We celebrated our wedding anniversary whilst away! It was clean, modern and had everything we needed and more. The hot tub was very relaxing and I certainly made good use of it!

The accommodation was of a high standard and refurbished to a lovely finish. The hot tub was a lovely factor - we had a fantastic time on this holiday.
Miss Anderson

Everything that we needed was provided within the accommodation. The atmosphere was very relaxing. The owners were friendly and welcoming. The hot tub and games barn were particularly good features.
Mr Sparks

Fantastic barn conversions, done to a very high standard and exceptionally well presented. The Cart House was perfect for just the 2 of us, and the hot tub was the perfect added extra to the barn. Great hosts, with great local knowledge. The farm also has a great Play Barn too with pool table, table football, air hockey, retro arcade games and plenty of DVDs - a great addition. Overall a fantastic place to stay and relax
April 2014
Everything that we needed was provided within the accommodation. It was well equipped and furnished to a high standard. The atmosphere was very relaxing. The owners were friendly and welcoming - they were always available if needed but were not in any way intrusive. They kindly showed us around the other accommodation, which was all completed to the same high quality as the cart shed. The hot tub and games barn were particularly good features. I look forward to returning when the badminton court has been completed. The location is good for access to Shrewsbury, Chester and Wales - it is ideal for day trips out.

Everything about this cottage was perfect, I am looking forward to returning already.

We booked this the day before, travelling across country to find an attractive court yard setting on a small working farm. The owner, Robert, met us on arrival and showed us around the cottage. It really is well presented, a fully stocked and modern kitchen, spacious living area with comfortable reclining chairs, a wood burner, a big bedroom with a comfortable bed and walk in shower room. The garden is private and not overlooked, with a fantastic and easy to use hot tub. Another highlight is the underfloor heating throughout. The play barn, set near to the entrance of the cottages, is again modern and is a great idea, with a pool table, childrens play area, retro games machine with a lot of old Atari classics, an Air Hockey table and table top football, along with a stocked shelf of DVD's. All of this is free to use at any time of day! The local area has many pubs and restaurants, but it would be worth speaking to the owner before heading out as he has a good knowledge of the local area and owns property all around, but the tips we had paid off with great food. On leaving we were shown around the bigger cottages and all I can say is, 'Wow', the whole set up must have cost a fortune but the time and effort has paid off. We have spoken to many friends about returning here as a group and I would certainly recommend it to anyone wanting a comfortable, reasonably priced stay in cracking accommodation.
