A glorious Christmas
What a fantastic Christmas break. Ellie the hist made the superb cottage so special. The cottage has everything it was a home from home. An exceptionally clean and beautiful decor. Fantastic welcome goodies. Could not have wished for more. Very quite and secluded and great for a relax. Fantastic holiday for the dog owner. Only just got home and looking to book again. A must cottage to go and relax or walk and see the beautiful english scenery 10 out of 10

We keep coming back for more.
Our fourth visit to Ellie's cottages and as always a warm welcome, spotlessly clean property and wonderful holiday. Our visit spanned two seasons, end of summer in shorts and T-shirt's and beginning of Autumn with underfloor heating and log burner doing their thing. We adore this property for the peace and quiet and ideal location for the most beautiful part of Shropshire. Highly recommended.

Every one should stay here at least once.
Goosepond is a place everyone should stay at, at least once,but preferably more! What a wonderful place to stay, bigger than expected, so tastefully furnished with many personal touches. The Welcome Pack of items was the best, add to that the amazingly comfortable bed just makes your stay so special. Our stay was only for three nights, but wish it had been far more.

So good, we just had to come back.
Our second visit , and even more enjoyable than the first! This time, there is much better WiFi, and we have come for a week instead of a weekend. Our lovely hostess, Ellie has been giving us advice on her favourite walks in the area, as well as supplying us with a generous amount of logs for the log burner. The Cottage is spotlessly clean, spacious and very well equipped. Highlights for us : The generous welcome hamper, the fabulously effective log burning stove, excellent shower, huge comfy bed, fluffy towels, coffee machine , great sized fridge freezer for self catering and especially welcome under floor heating. Despite some really cold, icy conditions we have been gorgeously warm and cosy. Perfect location to visit some beautiful places in the Shropshire hills whilst enjoying the tranquility of this rural gem. We have loved getting to know Church Stretton, The Long Mynd, The Stiperstones and Bishop's Castle. Highly recommended for couples who like peace, walking and exploring this beautiful part of the world.

Gorgeous idyllic retreat!
From the helpful and informative phone call with the owner, to the warm welcome at this beautiful country retreat - this whole experience was just wonderful. For a change, decided to spend the New Year weekend at Goosepond, was amazed at the personal touches and the warm welcome including a sumptuous festive hamper and bottle of wine, and a welcome message on the blackboard, such incredible and warm personal touches that really mean a lot. Then to the accommodation itself which is perfectly located in the most idyllic spot, surrounded with lush countryside, hills, peace and tranquillity. Gorgeously furnished to a high spec finish, incredibly clean, comfortable, warm, stylish and welcoming - didn't want to leave! Would highly recommend it, and can't wait to return ourselves.
