The Turnip House Self-Catering

Holiday home
The Turnip House is a barn conversion cottage on the owners' 250 acre farm near to the village of Westhope in Shropshire. The cottage can sleep six people and has three bedrooms (one SK, one twin & one SK zip-link - can be made into twin) two family bathrooms. The rest of the accommodation is made up of an open plan living area with a fitted kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area. Outside the cottage is off road parking for two cars and an enclosed patio area with outdoor furniture and a barbecue. With its neighbouring cottages, The Turnip House can sleep a total of thirty six people in a lovely rural setting.

Area
The scattered village of Westhope is located amidst rolling farmland at the southern foot of the famous Wenlock Edge in Hope Valley. The area is home to numerous walks, rambling trails and cycle routes whilst many of Shropshire's main attractions are within easy driving distance of the village itself. Visitors can enjoy Church Stretton - known to the Victorians as Little Switzerland - with its antique shops and tea-rooms, in the midst of the beautiful Long Mynd Hills and close to the Acton Scott Historic Working Farm and the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre. The World Heritage Site at Ironbridge, Attingham Park, the market towns of Much Wenlock, Shrewsbury and Ludlow are all within easy reach, leaving visitors to the area spoiled for choice.

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.

It was such a beautiful cottage, a lot bigger than expected abs everyone was so friendly.. LOVED our Alpaca experience which was behind the cottage. It was perfect for kiddies! Thank you for making my birthday so special during a global pandemic.

We stayed at the Milking Parlour on Middle Westhope Farm and lucked out to have the first Alpaca walk. Stunning countryside and wonderfully guided by the owners. The kids were in raptures. Very good value too!

Just over all excellent! Everything you needed to make a perfect week. After coming back from days out, our evenings and nights were made ‘spot on’ by the comfort, facilities and atmosphere of the cottage.

Stayed for three nights and had a great time. We last stayed at the cottages 7 years ago and they had always stayed in our mind as a place to go back to, we were not disappointed. The cottage was really clean and cots, high chairs and stair gates were provided for our grandsons, there are also lots of baby/child friendly cutler, cups etc in the well equipped kitchen. The new addition of the games room and gym is great. Extremely dog friendly, there were towels, treats and a dog bowl left for the dog.

Fantastic cottage well equipped.. Welcome gifts were a lovely touch. Hot tub was perfect and games room was fab for the kids. Thank you to the very nice owner for meeting us there to check we arrived ok, showed us how to work the hot tub and gave the kids a pumpkin each. Holiday was perfect and we will be going back.

I have just returned from a fabulous weekend at The Turnip House with four friends. The Cottage is beautiful, and is in a stunning location, pet friendly (we took two small dogs with us), and just great for a relaxing break. There are fantastic scenic walks around the location. The nearest pub is a short drive away, but to be honest, we took our own food and alcohol, so only ventured to the pub on one occasion. The Cottage is well equipped, and we took advantage of the hot tub more than once a day. There is also a BBQ which we used. Marianne the owner is very friendly, and meets you on arrival to check all is OK. There was a bottle of wine, a lovely lemon drizzle cake and chocolate as a welcome gift. Marianne had also left tea, coffee sugar, and a jug of milk for us in the fridge. The hot tub is also tested regularly. This was my second time at Westhope Country Retreats (I stayed at the larger Troopers Barn last year with my family). I am also going back to The Turnip House in November with my Husband for his birthday weekend. Definitely recommended.

I stayed at turnip house for two nights with 5 of my friends for my hen weekend.. The house was just perfect - it was spotlessly clean, the landlady made us feel very welcome with a bottle of wine, a homemade cake (which was delicious) and a jug of milk from the farm waiting for us, as well as a big bar of Cadbury chocolate. Those small and thoughtful touches really made a difference. The landlady popped in to top up the shemicals in the hot tub and was very friendly, chatty and helpful. We felt well looked after and had a wonderful time!

It is a very well organised cottage, lovely and comfortable .. Really good welcome pack and nice to have a meet and greet to show us around. I had requested a couple of extra things from the owner and her return emails were prompt and friendly.

The cottage was amazing.. All the little added extras just made it stand out from all the other cottages that we have stayed in before. The owner was great and very welcoming. Perfect relaxation. Just what we needed as a family

This is a beautiful cottage in lovely surroundings. Spotlessly clean with everything you need in a self catering cottage. Fantastic hot tub which is maintained everyday by the very friendly and helpful staff. This was a long weekend away for five of us, all girls (hot tub hotties!! Lol ) we had a great time, nice long walks and relaxing evenings in the hot tub. Will definitely be back next year. Nearest pub is about 3.5 miles away, few minutes in the car probably a good hour or so to walk. We took our own wines etc so happy days! Couldn't fault this place the owners should be proud of it.

This is our favourite holiday cottage yet (we've done a few!). The decor was lovely (see photo's), great size kitchen / lounge, bedrooms were cozy and the beds super comfy. Hot tub was great and maintained every day. The kids loved the games room and went daily to play table tennis and pool. The welcome cake and wine was a lovely thought too. Great wi-fi, which only went down once as it was on a satellite system but rectified quickly. It has an upstairs bathroom and an en-suite bathroom with the downstairs bedroom, which was handy as there were 5 of us so no queuing for the loo! We had a game between us to see who could find something wrong... and all we came up with was no potato peeler... so as you can see this place just can't be faulted. Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning.

We spend three night enjoying our wedding celebrations.. We had close family and friends with us and the owner of the cottage made our stay just beautiful. I cannot recommend enough! The location is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. Rooms are spacious and there is enough space for the whole family to rest and spend a quality time together. Hot tube night was special too!!

The cottage was very welcoming and was very comfortable with everything we needed present.. The hot tub and outside area were a great addition to the holiday and helped to make it very relaxing, we would recommend this holiday home and hope to arrange another visit possibly with other family members renting the cottages next door as appears to be ideal location for large group holidays. My teenagers loved the games room being nearby too.

A good place to stay with a disabled mum and a dog, with it having a separate downstairs bedroom and toilet plus an enclosed garden. Also a lovely welcome from the owner with home-made cake, wine, chocolate and flowers.

We arrived at this place, and were treated to a lovely surprise of a homemade cake, a jug of milk in the fridge, a bar of chocolate and a bottle of wine! The owner arrived shortly to greet us, and informed us what the area had to offer. Nothing was too much trouble. The location is tranquil and there are many 'conservation walks' to walk your dog. Although situated off an A road, the location is central to nearby activities and attractions, such as lovely walks in Carding Mill Valley, Long Mynd, the 'Hills & Dales' route to Craven Arms. Attractions within close proximity are Acton Scott, a working Victorian farm, and the charming town of Ludlow (9 miles away). There are other numerous attractions in the area. Supermarkets deliver to this property, although don't forget the high quality food provided at local towns such as Church Stretton. If you have kids, then they will love viewing the pigs, donkeys and cattle situated in adjacent fields. The games room was also entertaining on a rainy day. The only area for slight improvement is the gym. It currently houses a weight lifting machine, a rowing machine and a cross trainer. Unfortunately, when we visited, the cross trainer was out of action and in my opinion, the gym would benefit from a running machine/spin cycle and a fan to cool the room. All in all a very well appointed holiday cottage, and we had a wonderful time.

Shropshire is somewhere I have wanted to go for a long time. Went with my husband and our son and daughter in law and the two grandsons aged 11 and 14 yrs. Loved The Turnip House, liked the spaciousness, it was nice to meet the owner who answered any questions. We went out and about and it was nice to return to The Turnip House after a long day. It was not far from the local pub which did lovely meals. Only problem, wish we had gone for 2 weeks instead of one, but it was half term in May, and that governed the amount of time we could spend. Lovely and relaxing with so much provided, so much more than usually provided when we have stayed in cottages before.
