Virginia Cottage is in a great position and central for seeing such interesting places in Shropshire. This is our second visit to this Cottage and would definitely go back. The owners are very friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Cannot wait to go back.
A beautiful cottage in a lovely area. Chance for a great rest!
A very clean and well-presented cottage, with high-quality furnishings and appliances. We would definitely recommend this property.
A weekend was quite simply not long enough! So tastefully and comfortably furnished with such care taken to ensure the cottage was equipped with everything you could possibly need. The 'personal' welcome pack really helped us to get the most out of the short time we had! Would just love to return when time permits. Just perfect! Thank you so very much!
The cottage was fantastic, you couldn't want for a better cottage, we have been in a few over the years and this is top of the list by far. We will be back next year for sure.
This cottage is extremely good, beautifully furnished and really well equipped. Very good location for exploring Shropshire.

A comfortable and well equipped cottage with all the information needed to make the most of our stay. It was clear that the owners gave a lot of thought to what guests would need, both within the cottage and in terms of information to quickly and easily benefit from all there is on offer in this lovely part of the country.
Best Holiday Accomodation you could wish for!
The service we received was excellent. The Holiday Accomodation was perfect. There was everything you could want and more besides! We were all impressed with the wonderful layout and comfort of the home. The location was quiet and peaceful. My only complaint(besides the weather) was there were no close amenities, you had to drive everywhere.
Delightful Stay in Beautiful Home and Surroundings
"The cottage was beautiful and lovely and clean and very comfortable. Had all the things you require a home to have from essential cooking utensils to home comforts. The owners Penny and her Husband and their family were most hospitable." Would highly recommend a visit here. Some lovely pubs to visit in surrounding areas too.
We hope to return one day very soon!.

We loved the cottage and the area - a lovely holiday,
Week of R & R
We had an awesome weeks rest in Virginia Cottage, the owners where fantastic people, I only wish we could have stayed longer. The cottage was beautifully appointed with everything you could want for a perfect break. I come from a farming background so the peace and quite of this farm forming a part of the village reminded me of my childhood from Cross Farm in Eastry, Kent. I would wholeheartedly recommend this cottage to anyone with or without animals.
A warm and corfortable luxury break.
The cottage provided a good base for touring Shrophshire with good walks out of the front door for the dog. The whole atmosphere was relaxing and peaceful. The local shop/ P.O. stocked the daily papers and other essential but often forgotten items.
Hope to return again soon.
Very relaxing. Overall a very good break in a friendly environment as we were made to feel very welcome.
The patio area to front and rear of cottage give privacy and a safe play area for young children.
An exceptionally well equipped cottage, very tastefully furnished to a high standard. Conveniently located for many attractions in Shropshire.
This should get your top rating, very high standard property. Owners also very friendly. Top marks all round. Cottage and surrounding safe for young children. Good location/base for touring Shropshire.
A beautiful cottage for a quiet holiday away from it all.
Superb property, plenty to do in area without driving very far. Owners very friendly and helpful.
The cottage had lovely garden and patio areas which was ideal for children. Very pleasant and helpful owners on the spot. There was some beautiful scenery.
Acton Scott Historic Working Farm and the Land of Lost Content are well worth a visit.
Beautiful decor, tastefully renovated, mix of modern and classic, spacious.
The owners provide fantastic information about the area. A good garden and yard for the children to play in.
Absolutely brilliant accommodation. Would love to go again.
This cottage should be 5 star. A very comfortable and well equipped property. Very secure patio - good for young children or pets. Excellent pub nearby (approx 2 miles) - "The Pound" at Leebotwood.
Absolutely beautiful cottage in a lovely peaceful location. Everything necessary for a wonderful holiday was provided in the cottage, even a welcoming bottle of wine on the dresser. Easy access to all that Shropshire has to offer and there is certainly plenty to see there. Excellent food in "The Plough" at Leebotwood about 2 miles away and an excellent Sunday carvery lunch at "The Station Inn" at Marshbrook, Church Stretton. We were so fortunate to pick the hot weather in April. It was more like being on holiday in July!
Absolutely beautiful cottage. Quiet and peaceful in a lovely area. Can't praise it highly enough. Excellent meals at the Pound, Leebotwood and Sunday carvery at the Station Inn, Marshbrook.
The cottage was immaculate, and the best accommodation that we have stayed in. Sometimes, if a property accepts dogs, you do not expect the incredibly high standard which greeted us at Virginia. The owners should be extremely proud of their conversion. A 5* property at an affordable price. Would definitely look to book again in the not too distant future. Cannot praise the cottage, or the warm friendly welcome by the owners, enough.
An outstanding cottage situated in a lovely part of the countryside.Can recommend it unreservedly.
It was such a nice place to come back to after being out all day and had everything you needed.
A brilliant base for exploring the area. Virginia Cottage was a joy to come back to on an evening...Couldn't ask for more from holiday accommodation! Perfect!
The cottage was very comfortable and clean. A lot of care has been taken by the owners to make it into a home rather than just a house. The furnishings and decor were of an extremely high standard. We have already recommended it to several of our friends.

Virginia Cottage is beautifully decorated and maintained. It has everything anyone could wish for or need on holiday and the surrounding countryside was just superb. The village of Acton Burnell is small and very pretty.

The cleanest, most comfortably appointed cottage we've stayed in - in over 20 years.

The area was a great centre for getting around and the cottage was idyllic. Sykes were very efficient we would use again.
This was a child and pet friendly cottage. It was furnished to an excellent standard and had everything you could possibly need available. It was a great base for visiting the attractions including Acton Burnell castle and fishing. My young son particularly like the tractor parked in the shed and is still talking about it now. We intend to return next year as we had a fantastic time!
There was a lot to see and do in the area for all ages and we intend to return in the near future to visit the places we did not have time to see this time. The owners were friendly and welcoming. The cottage is ideally located for exploring Shropshire and Wales.

I was able to relax as the garden was secure for my dogs.
A very relaxing, well-appointed base for any planned tours or trips.
Cozy well maintained property. Excellent friendly hosts.
We enjoyed the peaceful location in the beautiful countryside yet easy to go north, south, east or west to see more of the area. We loved the comfort and cosiness of the cottage which thoroughly deserves all the commendations previous users have given.
Certainly the best cottage we have stayed in.
The accommodation was comfortable, well equipped with great attention to detail. The owners had a genuine warmth and friendliness. The location within a pretty village with access to countryside public footpaths and local places of interest is very good. An excellent two week rental. Highly recommended.
Very cosy cottage to come home to. Scenery beautiful. Plenty of good places to eat.
A lovely Cottage in a great village in Shropshire. Just like a home from home.
Loved our stay, our first impressions were that we could live in the property forever!
The cottage has a very homely feel. I liked the fact that the cottage is on a working farm, so you do not feel totally isolated, yet you can enjoy your privacy.
The cottage is situated on a working farm and is very peaceful.
