Beautiful, restful homely and perfect
It has been such a wonderful stay in the farmland cottage. The cottage itself is beautiful and has everything you need and more. The photos don't give the cottage its justice as it such a stunning place. We arrived too the gift of tea, cakes and a bottle of wine. There was a kit for the fire and wood for burning so many nights were spent relaxing in front of the fire watching DVDs and really enjoying winding down.
The cottage is on farmland and the silence and darkness was perfect for a getaway being relax and switch off. In the morning we woke to a lovely gathering of birds on the birdfeeder which was so amazing to watch whilst making breakfast. Also, the welcoming of Poppy the lovely farm dog who was so sweet.
Within a few hours of being in the cottage it felt like home as it has everything there. We bought a few things from the shop and although we enjoyed the local sights we craved being back in the cottage and that homely feel.
The bedrooms are perfect with storage to be able to put away cloths as you would at home. The bath was really great, and the shower was so nice it was hard to get out of! The kitchen has every piece of equipment and there is a fridge/freezer as well as storage for food. It has a dishwasher, so we could even take a break from washing dishes!
There are lovely places to visit including Ludlow Castle and many museums in Ironbridge, the Victorian Village is fascinating. Driving in the countryside is beautiful with many viewing points and walks as well as lovely places to eat.
We can?t thank the owners enough for such a wonderful holiday and helping us start the year feeling refreshed and relaxed. Thank you.
A great holiday cottage
Arrived to find milk in the fridge, a bottle of wine plus some delicious home baked blueberry and lemon drizzle cake plus tea. After a 6 hour drive this was a great start to our stay! The cottage has two bedrooms. One bedroom has double bed and is quite spacious. Beware, the door closes with a bang! we left it open. The second bedroom has two single beds. The bathroom and toilet are downstairs. There is a Mira shower over the bath with the option for a handheld shower or an overhead drench shower which my wife loved. I prefer the handheld shower so we were both happy. There was plenty of hot water and loads of towels provided. This cottage opened in 2015 and so you might think things would be getting a bit worn by now. But no everything was in perfect condition with complete and matching cutlery and crockery. There is a TV, wifi, oven, dishwasher and a large fridge freezer. Everything was in immaculate condition and this is one of the best holiday lets we have stayed in. Added to that the owners Rob and Louise are extremely friendly and helpful. Be warned, however, using the grill can set off the fire alarm even if the extractor fan is on! Louise keeps the bird feeder full which allowed us to watch woodpeckers, blue tits, sparrows etc while we ate breakfast. Finally they have the friendliest border collie called Pip who makes you feel welcome and keeps an eye on you during your stay.

Recently renovated and immaculately clean cottage on a working farm
The friendly owners left us a welcome gift of wine, milk, tea, flowers and cake. A good start to an excellent week in this delightful cottage. It was completely recently renovated to a high standard. Hence you get the benefit of a new bathroom with powerful shower (albeit downstairs), and a well equipped kitchen. It was immaculately clean and warm. Outside there is a pretty enclosed patio plus views of the fields and masses of bird life.
Quiet location on a working cattle farm (lots of calves born during our stay, but the busy farmers still had time to chat to us about their farm). Easy access to Ludlow plus numerous National Trust and English Heritage properties.
Gorgeous cottage, thoughtfully equipped - highly recommended!
On arrival we were greeted by the friendly and helpful owner and his adorable, immaculately behaved sheepdog. Inside the cottage, the wood burner had been lit, the heating was on, and a tea tray was set out for us with beautiful cakes. There was milk in the fridge, wine and fresh flowers on the table.
The attractive cottage has been beautifully renovated in a simple rustic style. The cottage adjoins the owners' home and is on a working farm. It is extremely quiet and the beds are so comfy... I can't quite believe how well I slept here (I'm an insomniac and can't usually sleep in strange places!) The cottage is very clean and well-equipped, including Wi-Fi, dishwasher, and a good size fridge-freezer (NB. no washing machine, but I think I read in the welcome notes that owners will do washing for you if needed). It sleeps up to four (one double, one twin).
Stone House is in a small village, not far from the attractive town of Ludlow. There is plenty to do in the area. I would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful cottage to anyone wanting to visit the lovely county of Shropshire.
