This was our first “real” taste of Shropshire & we were made very comfortable in Gwen & Brian’s cosy cottage, End Barn. The cottage is nicely decorated & well-equipped & the beds are very comfortable. We were able to sit & enjoy the owners’ colourful & sheltered garden & we were kindly provided with a place to store our bikes. Our son joined us for a few nights & there was plenty room for all! We knew there was no internet or DVD player before we went & managed to survive without any withdrawal symptoms! Much Wenlock is a delightful, quaint market town & there are plenty of other lovely places to visit round and about. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Shropshire & our relaxing stay at End Barn.

We had a wonderful week in End Barn, finding the property well-appointed, immaculately clean and enhanced by the owners’ lovely garden, of which we were allowed shared use. The owners are very kind: present if you need them but never intrusive. The cottage was spacious for me, my husband and our toddler – and easily accommodated my mum and her partner when they stayed for a night too. The location is great: quiet and tucked away, yet only two minutes’ walk from the centre of Much Wenlock (which is sleepy, charming and steeped in history). Our two-year-old loved looking out of his window at the highland cattle in the field behind the house (and there’s a toddler-friendly, ten-minute walk around the back of it). Much Wenlock is also within easy driving distance of some brilliant places: Ironbridge Gorge, Bridgnorth, Morville, Benthall Hall, Dudmaston, and so on. We could have stayed for a month! One caveat: there is no WiFi at the house, and very little phone signal. You might, of course, view this as a good thing! All in all, highly recommended.
