Perfectly compact cottage! by Sally O'Boyle on April 29th 2014
My husband & I stayed at The Little Bothy last October (2013) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The cottage was really cosy with everything you could ever need: modern appliances, beautiful decor & super comfy-we could've easily stayed there, without leaving, all weekend, watching movies & relaxing in front of the fire!! As well as the ideal surroundings inside the cottage, the location was spot on; it was close by to nearby local shops & pubs in Tenbury wells & a very reasonable distance from the charismatic towns of Leominster & Ludlow-just perfect!
