"We've had a wonderful Christmas in the very comfortable & well appointed cottage. The decorations were beautiful. We had an excellent meal at the Ugly Duckling pub."
Judy, Ian, Nina & Hannah - Christmas 2019
"Lots to do in the area, we had never visited the Iron Gorge Museums and used two of our days exploring the various attractions at these interesting museums. Lovely unspoilt villages and countryside with good pubs for meals.
David and Carole, the owners of The Hayloft, have created a beautiful house, the best Viv and I have rented. The property is in a splendid location and the nearby Ugly Duckling pub provides great food in a posh bistro setting."

Cathy & Mark, Suffolk - July 2019
"Immaculate, comfortable very well equipped cottage. Comfortable beds, great shower and super thick towels. Totally equipped kitchen, smart TVs in every room. My daughter said it was like a posh hotel (although self catering obviously).
South facing decking with chairs and table. Very quiet immediate area and pub in walking distance which served a great Sunday lunch (need to book) and were great with allergies if you need that.
The owners were very helpful if needed and full of local information but equally left us to our own devices.
Lots of places to visit within a 30 min drive.
Would thoroughly recommend."
Alison (family), London - July 2019
"A very warm welcome on arrival from our hosts, Carole and David.

We thoroughly recommend this delightful holiday home. Thank you Carole and David."

Overall, one of the best properties we have stayed in. Would highly recommend."

The house was spotlessly clean, cosy, we had towels galore and the beds were extremely comfortable with a choice of double or twin. All in all the cottage fulfilled our needs - a great find."

We loved Blists Hill, the Tile Museum at Ironbridge, also Bridgnorth and Severn Railway was excellent. Thank you so much."
'The Beanes' Norfolk - August 2018
"The Hayloft was the best holiday cottage we have stayed in, by far. The standard of the accommodation was 5*plus. Everything has been very thoroughly thought out for the comfort of anyone staying and the interior has been finished to a very high standard indeed, nothing has been overlooked at all. There was everything you could possibly need, especially in the kitchen. Carole and David were the perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble if we had any questions or needed any advise. The cottage itself is beautifully located with the decking area overlooking the beautiful Shropshire countryside. Equally, The Hayloft is ideally located for many local attractions and walks. On our 3 night break we visited Ironbridge, Attingham Park, the local National Trust property and RAF Cosford. We would definitely recommend the cottage and would hope to visit again in the near future. It was the perfect holiday for us, very special."
Louise, Cheshire - August 2018
"We have really appreciated our 4 days in this lovely cottage. The Welcome tray was indeed very 'welcome', the cottage is beautiful, comfy bed and everything you could possibly need. We have stayed in many holiday cottages and would say that this is the best yet. Thank you Carole and David for being so friendly and helpful."
Chris and Dave, Whitchurch - July 2018
"The Hayloft was an absolutely beautiful cottage to stay in and one of the best, if not the best cottage we have stayed in so far. The hosts Carole and David were wonderful. They were extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. The cottage is 5+ star accommodation, with all the amenities you could ask for - comfortable beds, spacious living area, modern kitchen and appliances, great WiFi, and a very relaxing outside deck to sit and enjoy the peaceful surrounds. We would definitely recommend the Hayloft as a great place to holiday in Shropshire."

"This cottage is the best I have ever stayed in (and I’ve stayed in quite a few). The owners were very welcoming and helpful throughout. The location is beautiful with lots of wildlife to watch. It has a good pub/restaurant within walking distance and supermarkets are a short drive from the house. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped and lacked nothing. If you like traditional merged with all mod cons then this is the place for you. Even the WiFi was exceptional. I would definitely return to this cottage. WOW!"
