"Thank you for a very enjoyable stay in The Old Stables cottage. This is definitely the loveliest place we have stayed in on our trip to England. The cottage was very well equipped and extremely warm and comfortable. We found Ludlow to be one of the nicest towns we have ever visited and also enjoyed Shrewsbury and Ironbridge gorge with its Blists Hill Victorian town. So many places to see we couldn't list them all!

It's lovely to have finished our visit in this beautiful cottage."

"Thank you so much for the privilege of staying here in The Old Stables. It is such a beautiful home we felt as if we were the first people to stay here. Thank you for the lovely welcome basket they were so greatly appreciated. The village of Richards Castle even has its own castle ruin with some very interesting goats who climb the walls! A most enjoyable stay in very pleasant surroundings. "
