Very warm welcome by the owner and his family.. The Granary is spacious and well equipped. Lovely to stay on a farm and enjoy evening rural walks. Our 9-year old partuculatlt enjoyed meeting the dogs, cats, horses, cows and sheep. Good location for exploring the marshes and can recommend the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre at Craven Arms, Clun, Ludlow, Croft Castle and Powis Castle. All in all an excellent week and would be happy to return at some point in the future.

The owner lives next door and is exceptionally helpful in wanting to ensure you have everything you need.. On arrival we were greeted with a bunch of flowers, really tasty biscuits and the essential bottle of milk which was a lovely gesture, The Granary is really lovely accommodation and there are lots of things to do in the area. We will be returning in the future.

Felt at home as soon as we stepped in the door, owner was friendly and very helpful with suggestions of things to do.. Accommodation is bigger than it looks in the pictures and very comfortable. It was very quiet considering you are on a working farm and would stay again.

This was a truly magical place to stay, adjoining a beautiful historic hall and surrounded by a working farm including all manner of farmyard animals, such as newborn calves and lambs- so cute! Woke up every morning to the sound of chirping sparrows . Lovely quiet dog walks straight from the door. The owner was extremely friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. A really relaxing holiday, thank you.

Mrs Rowe

Never been to Shropshire before.. Really beautiful county and the holiday stay at the Granary was so lovely. Frank was really great, he even came to find us when we got lost arriving. The Granary was lovely, everything on one level and the surrounding country side was lovely and quiet. Just what we needed to get away from the rush of every day life. The dogs just loved it. Unlike other farms they were able to run in the fields ( away from sheep of course). Also having Frank's dogs to visit for evening biscuits was great. To sum up, it's the first holiday we have had where we did not want to go home. In fact, it was LOVELY!
Mrs Heneghan

Very friendly neighbours in the farmhouse - especially the dogs! Gorgeous location on a working farm and the cottage was spacious and comfortable. The directions to the farm were good. We suspect the lack of loo paper on our arrival was an oversight. A couple of teabags would have been nice too. We failed to notice that there is a fridge but no freezer in the description. The dishwasher didn't seem to want to work, but washing up for only 2 was not a problem - once we'd bought more washing - up liquid, and a dish cloth etc. Excellent local supermarket in very nearby Craven Arms. The heating in the house was excellent, and we were able to dry our washing in the spacious airing cupboard ( the dryer with the washing machine did not seem to be effective) For the price, lack of things like loo roll, adequate washing-up liquid etc is not unreasonable. I suppose it's just that we've come to expect it in previous similar holiday cottages we've stayed in, and when you are only away for a week or less then you don't really want to have to buy or bring those sort of things with you; it just feels a bit stingy and unwelcoming on the part of the owners, which is a pity as they were very warm people. I wouldn't mind paying a little extra to be sure basic things like this are provided.

This is a lovely farm cottage, very suitable for taking dogs on holiday to. We had some lovely walks around the farm and further afield. Very comfortable and warm accommodation, friendly hosts. We needed a restful holiday and the beauty of the area and the peace of the cottage meant that we have come away refreshed.

Friendly hosts, and I loved the farm and animals. The scenery was lovely and it was very peaceful as there was no traffic noise, and I loved the farm noise and sounds. The stars were great to see as there were no street lights to block the view.

This is a great little gem in the beautiful Shropshire countryside. It is on an out of the way, dog friendly farm but only a 5 minute car trip out of the local town and all its amenities.

What a lovely surprise for a last minute booking! Idyllic place to stay with fantastic views of the countryside. Added bonus of a working farm and we were allowed to visit the calves and lambs being born at the time. The owners were friendly and very helpful with advice about places to go to and nice walks. Of course, our dogs had a great time too!

Beautiful setting on a working farm, lots of wildlife to see, lambing while we were there. Cottage was really nice, all on one level. Kitchen really well stocked. Free WiFi provided. Our greyhound loved all the fields to walk in and was very interested in the rabbits. Beautiful scenery all around, very peaceful, just birdsong and noises from the farm.

The photos used to advertise this cottage do not do it justice.. Both the lounge and kitchen are large and double aspect, so that the stunning Shropshire countryside can be viewed from both sides. When the sun comes out, both rooms are flooded with the most beautiful and uplifting light. We loved it all - the setting, the décor and the facilities. We believe this property deserves at least a four star rating and we will definitely be going back.

We stayed here in September 2013 with our small dog. The cottage is beautifully appointed, on a working farm with lots going on. The owner, Frank, and his family were wonderful hosts, always there if there were any queries and gave us many tips and pointers to local 'must see' attractions and local food producers. We found it easy to find and enough off the beaten track to have peace and quiet. The kitchen was well stocked with cleaning items and crockery, so no need to take the kitchen sink! Wi-Fi freely available, good connection, storage heating is really warm, adjustable to your taste. Our dog loved it! We will definitely stay here again.
