Lovely to have you here. Glad you enjoyed the chutney - all the garden is starting to grow so it will soon be jam & chutney making time again

“Lovely tranquil retreat”
Reviewed 27 December 2011 for a stay in December 2011

We really enjoyed our week at the cottage, with wonderful walks right from the door to the Stiperstones, and the Long Mynd within easy reach. Even when the weather was bad, the countryside could be appreciated through the picture window.

The cottage was well equipped and comfortable and the owners friendly and helpful. Would return again to explore the many walks in the area.

We'd love to have you back. When we designed the latest flyer we looked at all the options and decided it sounded like 2 weeks or more is needed to cover all the area!

“Recharge your soul”
Reviewed 8 November 2011 for a stay in October 2011

Cranberry Cottage is well equipped, comfortable and the ideal place to get away from it all. My partner and I bought our young son who loved it equally as much as we both did. He is on the move now and at rapid speed, so I would suggest it's an ideal holiday rental for either babes in arms or older children. As you can imagine it was a case of removing anything which may pose a danger to him beyond his grasp.

Plus it was a bit of a squeeze getting his cot to fit in our bedroom. Ideal for a moses basket and a much younger baby. This has not put us off at all, my partner and I plan a weekend away at Cranberry cottage very soon, our son this time shall stay with nanie and grandad for the first time. Everyone is very excited at the prospect... especially mum and dad.
