Shropshire Accommodation Guest Comment

A very warm welcome received by Sara and Phil in the farmhouse kitchen before being shown to our accommodation. The converted barn is beautiful with all the mod cons but old barn feel with lovely oak windows and original exposed beams. The breakfast is second to none and we would recommend a stay here to anyone!
