“Fabulous family weekend”
Reviewed 8 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We have just had the best weekend staying in Troopers Barn and the Olde Cowshed.
Marianne is such a great host. My husband was thrilled to be taken on a tour of the land with Brian on his Mule!
The accommodation is first class, our cottage was set up for 17 people to eat comfortably. Lots of bathrooms so no waiting for a shower! Plenty of seating, too, DVD player, games, books. Kitchen is great, very well equipped including a beautiful cake on arrival and wine!
The hot tub was a real highlight. The younger generation made use of the gym and games room. We walked in the muddy fields, ran along Wenlock Edge with our dog, visited local towns of Ludlow and Shrewsbury.
Our only dilemma is when to come back....

“Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed 21 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Stayed with a party of 11, which included 5 children. We all agreed we had a wonderful stay. The barn lacked nothing!! It was spotlessly clean and very well maintained. We loved the hot tub and children loved the outdoor shower ( they've never been so clean) beautiful walks and scenery and not too far away from places to eat and shop. Highly recommended

“fantastic property for a girlie weekend!”
Reviewed 23 February 2015 for a stay in October 2014

One of the best properties that our girlie group of 7 have stayed in - we were greeted with flowers, wine and home made cake! The property was spotlessly clean and decorated to a very high standard. The owners were lovely and we had a fantastic stay. The hot tub was lovely as well as the roaring fire! We will be going back again.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, we are so glad you had a great time with your friends. It's great to getaway for a short break over winter to unwind and the hot tub along with the complimentary wine really helps I'm sure! We hope you book another break again soon.
