The staff were lovely + would definitely recommend a visit we would all love to come back again thankyou

Fantastic stay
Cottage was clean and very spacious, kitcken had everything needed plus more. Rooms and beds were comfortable and spacious. Court yard was nice size private and self contained.

We stayed last year, and obviously enjoyed it so much we came back, this accomadation is every thing you could ask for, the owner popped in to make sure we were ok such a lovely lady. We will definitely be booking again.

Excellent accommodation & location
We arrived at Troopers Barn where the owner Marianne had put in place as a welcome, chocolate, wine and a home made Victoria sponge which was delicious. Our family who joined us from various parts of the country were impressed with the accommodation and the location being about 3 miles from Craven Arms in a quiet scenic part of Shropshire and midway between Ludlow and Ironbridge about 10 miles away. An alpaca farm was next door and you could even take them for a walk. Unfortunately we had 7 days of rain and apart from a walk along the picturesque Cardingmill Valley we were mostly confined to sightseeing but there is much to see and it didn?t dampen our enthusiasm but it was nice to come back to the warm spacious Troopers Barn and indulge in the hot tub for a while. We will return someday, hopefully with better weather. There are some super old inns for dining out within a short drive if you didn?t want to take advantage of the excellent kitchen facilities as it is very well appointed.

Snowy weekend break
We are currently staying at Troopers Barn with family members from across the country (the furthest travelling from Southampton) We made the decision to travel despite the weather, as the owners had sent an email to advise that they would be around to provide any support required. We are so glad that we braved the snow as we have had a fantastic weekend. Some members of our party were diverted because of an accident and became stuck on a difficult piece of road, including myself, partner and 8 week old baby, but as soon as we called Marianne and Stuart, they reassured us that they would come and find us and take us to the property. Stuart then returned to our cars, moved them to a place of safety and then drove us to collect them Saturday morning once conditions had improved. Some of our party decided to travel Saturday morning in light of the conditions becoming worse late Friday night so nobody had to miss out on the fun! We have had a great weekend and made use of the sledges provided in the games room! Sitting in a lovely warm hot tub in minus temperatures was also great fun!!! There was a homemade chocolate cake, bottle of wine and fresh flowers on the table when we arrived and the cottage is absolutely beautiful. The rooms are immaculate and finished to a lovely standard. I would highly recommend Westhope retreats and we will definitely be back (hopefully it will be warmer so we can make use of the BBQ!!) Many thanks again to Marianne and Stuart for all of their help and ensuring that we had the best weekend! Xx
