Newtown Haven is a quiet, rural cottage with enclosed garden, located in farming country on a mixed working farm. This semi-detached holiday cottage is one of a small number of houses created from former barns surrounded by owner’s own grounds. It offers comfortable accommodation with internet access, a south facing garden and a natural fish pool, where mallard ducks and moorhens breed every spring. This is an area for quiet enjoyment, situated on the Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire borders. For walkers there is Offa’s Dyke, Malvern, Clee and Church Stretton Hills. For the even more active, there is a riding school, 1 mile, golf and fishing. Within easy reach visit West Midlands safari park, boasting white lions amongst many other animals and attractions, the Severn Valley steam railway, Ironbridge Gorge museum and Blists Hill Victorian Town. Close by Ludlow, famous for its castle, festivals, quaint streets, shops, open markets and an abundance of restaurants for fine dining, some Michelin starred. The area also boasts many National Trust properties, all within easy driving distance. Have a day out further afield to the cathedral cities of Worcester, with its Porcelain outlet, Hereford, home to Bulmer’s cider and museum, and Gloucester for the regeneration of the Docks and the abbey at Tewkesbury. If you are a book lover, enjoy a trip to the renowned book town of Hay-on-Wye, whilst theatre lovers can venture out to Stratford-upon-Avon to the recently reopened Royal Shakespeare Theatre, the birthplace of William Shakespeare. Shop, pub and resuaurant 3 miles.
Great property, only problem was the front door. Very stiff and ill fitting. It needs shaving down, very loud opening and closing which wakes the whole house when going out to smoke at night.
What I did have a problem with was being spoken to like I was stupid on arrival.
The previous guests threw all their rubbish in to the green bin so the lady wanted to explain how to recycle, I recycle at home but she decided she wanted to explain anyway.
Not once, not twice but THREE times then had the nerve to ask 'do you understand?'.
Nothing worse then being spoken to in a condescending manner!
Recycling isn't rocket science, no one should be treated badly because of a previous persons actions.
Also the microwave wasn't working on arrival which I informed the lady, when leaving she said there was nothing wrong with it and I must have got the plugs confused (again talking to me like I'm stupid) even though I showed her and her husband that both plug switches were on before they took it away and the fact that any 36 year old man would have the common sense to check it before saying anything.
