“Lovely cottage, fabulous location, great for dogs”
Reviewed 17 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We had a lovely weekend at Pinstones, Tim, the owner was there to welcome us and show us around. Cottage was extremely spacious, clean and comfortable. Beds were especially comfortable. Lovely setting with lambs nearby and chickens. The communal games room was a great bonus as was availability of fresh eggs. Dogs loved it, lots of walks close by. The homemade fruitcake which greeted us was a real treat. We can highly recommend the tally-Ho for food and hospitality. I am very grateful to Tim for posting a couple of items of clothing to me which my daughter left behind. Excellent communication, we would happily return to Pinstones and plan to do so over the summer.

“Great cottage in a lovely quiet location”

We stayed at Pinstones for a weekend relaxing and walking. The cottage was well equipped, warm and welcoming. Tim provided us with all the info we needed, and we certainly made use of the excellent games room with full size snooker table, table tennis and darts – a real nice touch. Although the owners live on site, we had our own garden to the rear, so it still felt private and that we had our own space.

The location is superb, nestled in a quiet valley, with great cycling and walking opportunities direct from the door. The Long Mynd and Clee hills are both nearby for more adventurous walks/rides. Pub was a 10mins walk away although we didn’t use it. All in all a great place to stay and would definitely go back.

“Excellent cottage”
Reviewed 19 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Stayed at Pinstones cottage for 2 nights in April 2015. The cottage was spacious, clean and comfortable. The highlight of the stay was the "BBQ house" which is a small wooden house with benches and a built in fire/bbq inside it. It was a great little addition. Would recommend staying here and would stay again myself.

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. The BBQ house is getting increasingly popular - we may end up having to limit our own use of it!

“The best place we could have found.”

We needed somewhere to stay while our house purchase in the area took place. We had two large dogs and a cat with us as well as lots of household items. Tim's cottage was comfortable and easy to keep clean, not always easy with the animals but more importantly we felt we could relax at a time of high stress.
Tim was available to advise and help at all times which was something we appreciated greatly. We can thoroughly recommend Pinstones to anyone in our position or families with pets who seek a holiday home with good facilities and a relaxed atmosphere. Thank you Tim, from grateful travellers Lesley and Martin
