“Another great holiday at Lower Farm Shelve”
Reviewed 29 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We are regular visitors at Lower farm. As always the accommodation was excellent, and little thoughtful touches such as fresh milk and eggs made us feel really welcome. We were blessed with good weather and able to enjoy walking in the area around Lower Farm at Shelve, particularly the Stiperstones Ridge and the Long Mynd. Paul and Jean are very friendly and accommodating, and always happy to point out events that might be of interest and provide a huge resource of information and books on the area.
We will be back next year!

“Quality apartment in a perfect rural idyl”
Reviewed 24 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

My wife and I stayed here for a week and had a wonderful time. The apartment is comfortable, clean and much bigger than it looks on the website.
Situated in a very quiet rural area, it's a perfect location from which to explore the beautiful villages and countryside of the Welsh/English Marches.
Many walks start from the apartment so you don't need to drive every day. The walk through Tankerville, up to Stiperstones and back via The Bog tearooms for fabulous coffee and cake is a few hours well-spent.
The kitchen is very well appointed so it's easy to cook for yourself. There is no pub in comfortable walking distance for an evening meal but a few lovely ones within a ten minute drive.
The owners are lovely and could not be more helpful, offering their own free-range eggs and produce from their gardens.
The apartment has a double bed so is a perfect holiday for a couple who want to get a weeks of peace and quiet. There is another apartment on site if you have family of friends who you wish to holiday with.

“Peaceful, welcoming and warm, with glorious views.”
Reviewed 2 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

The weather during our stay did us no favours, but the warmth and hospitality of the owners more than made up for that. The property was warm, clean, comfortable and well equipped and positioned so that we were able to get out quickly to places of interest as the weather dictated.We will certainly be returning for a longer stay when possible.
