A true hidden gem ?
We arrived after a 6 hour journey to to the most beautiful hidden gem of a cottage, perfect for relaxing in. It's close enough to the local amenities that you can walk to them, pubs included, but far enough away from the rest of the world that you could be in the middle of nowhere and still have the Severn at the bottom of the garden. The cottage has everything that you will need, and more, for a self-catering stay with a lovely new kitchen. The very comfortable living area is light and airy with lots of seating, books, DVDs etc for nights in. The dining area is great with stone and wooden floors throughout. The star of the show is the stairs which lead to the cosy bedrooms with plenty of storage space and a bathroom with good shower (a must for me!) and bath. I can't really say too many good things about Sleepy Hollow if I'm honest but come prepared to explore the local area as it is stunning.

Lovely, cosy cottage
We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage. It was a cold week in January and the sun does not get into this part of the Ironbridge gorge, but the cottage was very cosy and warm. It is really well-equipped with everything you need for an enjoyable, relaxing stay. The position is ideal for visiting the museums and for the numerous beautiful and interesting walks, with the church just behind the cottage being a hidden gem showing off the wonderful tiles and bricks made in the area. The kitchen in the cottage has everything you need for self-catering and there are lots of good options for eating out, including a friendly local pub just a couple of minutes walk away. We are looking forward to returning in the summer to enjoy the garden by the river.

Quirky cottage with a modern twist!
We loved staying in this period cottage with all of it's quirky features. Although there are beams, open fires & stone floors, the cottage owners have gone out of their way to fit modern facilities with a fantastic full range which is ideal for cooking up the local Shropshire produce provided in the generous welcome pack! The cottage is situated close to Ironbridge & it's museums which is ideal; for avid geocachers like ourselves, there are walks from the doorstep across the beautiful gorge so we left the car behind for most of the week! We had deep snow for a few days so were very pleased to come back to the warmth of this cosy cottage-we will be booking again!

Superb getaway
My daughter and I booked a short break during February. The location was perfect for exploring Ironbridge and we were able to walk to the majority of places which allowed us to explore the area as much as possible in the time we had. The cottage was beautifully kept and lacked nothing, the fire was laid and ready to light and there was a wide range of information provided, everything from bus routes to museum information.The welcome pack included local produce such as bacon, eggs, sausages, milk and home baked bread which were appreciated by us both. Unfortunately the weather kept us from enjoying the garden with views over the river so we sampled the local pub instead which I would also highly recommend. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and if returning to the area would dedinitely book to stay here again.
