NO WIFI, VERY POOR MOBILE SIGNAL , you dont realise how dependent we have become on a reliable Internet connection. Also one of the smallest tv's I've encountered in a long time, with only freeview channels available! If you want to get away from the rat race this place is for you! Not suitable if you have tech hungry kids or which to still be in contact with the outside world. If however you wish solitude and quiet this is the place for you.

Lovely friendly owners who gave good tips on where to visit/eat/walk.. Cottage had everything needed. No wifi & only part phone signal, which we were aware of before the holiday. Perfectly placed to explore Shropshire.

Wonderful cottage with good facilities.. We had a great time with lots to see and do and would recommend the Discovery Centre for good walks. The owner was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Well worth another stay.

Lovely cottage and facilities very good.. Excellent enclosed garden for my grandchildren and young dog.The owners very friendly and welcomed us but not intrusive.My grandchildren loved to see the sheep and young lambs. The only thing I could say is there is no explanation about recycling otherwise a little gem and will certainly be coming back.

The Stables is an ideal property both for families and dog owners alike.. The property is very spacious with excellent facilities and represents excellent value for money. The property is ideally situated for visiting areas of Shropshire, Worcestershire and Herefordshire and is based between Craven Arms and Ludlow on a farm bordering the A49 road. The owner lives on site and is pleasant and helpful without being overbearing.The property has an enclosed garden and is ideal for dogs. The local supermarket is 2 miles away and the local public house, The Appletree, is short distance away. A warm and friendly welcome awaits from the landlord Andy,here you can sample some fine local ales and ciders and order hearty food prepared by his wife Jill. A thoroughly enjoyable, relaxing stay.

We had a thoroughly relaxing holiday at The Stables at Onibury for the week - 13/7/18 to 20/7/18.. The accommodation was spacious and well equipped. It was so peaceful and the scenery was lovely. The owner and other members of the family were very helpful and friendly. We would be very happy to stay there again in the future. Jenny, Adrian, Steph, Bet and Nick.

This property was lovely, and well equipped, the owners had thought of everything and provided extras that they did not have to provide.. The cottage was spacious and we loved the enclosed garden (as did our dog). I found lots of walks from the property, there was a lovely walk along the river Onny just across the road from the property. The owner was very friendly, he showed me around the farm and even let me bottle feed a baby lamb! The owner has four dogs, who were beautiful I wanted to take them home with me.

We had a wonderful holiday the owner was very helpful We were unable to travel on the original start day and had to liaise quite a lot to access the weather situation He very kindly gave us an extra day at end of holiday The cottage was exceptionally comfortable and furnished .. it really made us feel welcome & at home.

The owner of the property was very friendly and helpful and even offered to collect me from the station.. We loved the Stable and it was so nice to be able to go for long walks without having to get in the car first. It was great for our dog as the garden was fully enclosed and a lovely garden too. We stayed in November. I'm sure it will be even nicer in spring or summer.

Ms Hill

The cottage was ideal for us. The dogs were safe, we were near suitable walks and the whole experience was very good. We shall return again if we can. People were helpful with walks which was wonderful as it is situated on farmland and I needed the dogs to be safe for the farm animals.
