TOTALLY EVERYTHING! by Mrs Randle, Nottingham, August 2016 on October 25th 2016
Totally brilliant. The house was amazing and the owner Tim and housekeeper pat could not have done more for us. We loved it and it was more than we'd hoped for. Ideal for all the children with lots of space and an amazing garden. The location was brilliant and the whole holiday was fantastic. We'll be back!
THE BEST HOLIDAY COTTAGE EVER! by Rev. Clowes, Cheadle, August 2016 on October 25th 2016
The Laurels is THE best cottage that we have ever rented and it deserves a higher rating. The housekeeper Pat, who is a member of the owner's family was wonderfully welcoming and very, very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for her. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and it was the best equipped place we have ever stayed. We celebrated our Golden Wedding Anniversary there with our immediate family (11 of us) and we had an outside caterer for the occasion, recommended by the owner. That too, was a wonderful meal. The location is great too for exploring beautiful Shropshire. We can't rate the Laurels highly enough - and can't wait to go again
Big, Clean and Lovely! by Mrs Wallace, Hertford, August 2016 on October 25th 2016
The Laurels is a lovely big family house very clean well maintained a great place for a family holiday it had everything we needed plenty of toys and games for babies up to teenager, lots of space to chill out, plenty of room for family meals if needed, but also within walking distance to great pubs and shops. Bishops Castle is a beautiful small town nice walks around the town and within easy reach of fun days out for all the family.
