A perfect place to relax and chill.

5 of 5
It was perfect. The accommodation, setting, facilities and décor was excellent. We were greeted by Brian and Gill who showed us around and had a lovely welcome package of milk, fruit, wine and 2 homemade shortcake biscuits in the shape of cows, delicious. Everything we needed was there as were full instructions (which is an added bonus). Beautifully decorated and immaculately clean and the layout of the interior is just perfect. The sunroom is the place to watch for birds and rabbits plus we saw buzzards flying overhead or sitting up on the pylon looking down for its prey. We had a super relaxing time and completely recharged our batteries. The facilities are second to none and the shower is fantastic. Brian and Gill were there if we had a question otherwise they left us alone. We visited the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct; amazing, and had afternoon tea after visiting Ludlow Castle The market in Ludlow is different most days and we bought some marmite flavoured cheese! Love it! The weather was typically British; showers and sun, but it didn't spoil things for us. Would we go again? You bet we would.
