Thank you for an excellent weekend, super relaxing, great house, well equipped and a dog walker's paradise. PS We were lucky enough to spot deer on every walk!

Bewdley is a lovely little town with everything. We are a family with a sweet tooth, so also appreciated the sweet shop. Two of us had a great meal at the Royal Forester a restaurant pub so a bet more expensive but worth it. You would probably need to book a table or go early. Ludlow is beautiful. Stourport is undergoing regeneration and should be great in a few years time. Enjoyed a ride on the Severn Valley Railway. Forest walks are wonderful, if a bit scary at dusk!

Lovely secluded location well situated for touring Shropshire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire and the Marshes. We also had an airy walk over Titersford Clee Hill from Cleeton St Mary. Several runs through the forest and back over the fields from Buttonbridge have helped to maintain fitness! Meal out at the Plough was good value for money, although the pseudo-themed interior rather spoiled the anticipation evoked by the authentic exterior.

Two brilliant meals at the Fighting Cocks in Stottesdon and the Plough in Far Forest on the way home last night. Lovely walk through forest to Buttonoak, saw field full of cowslips.

Great tree house – my nephew got to level three. So many walks – didn’t do nearly enough. So many pubs – only got as far as Button Oak Inn – well cooked generous servings, Bands and Stowford Cider

We had some wonderful walking days in the forest which our dog loved even more than us. The main problem we found was the entourage of baby pheasants showing us the way home everytime we ventured out in the car.

Loved the setting its in, including the local wildlife (badgers in the garden, deer in the orchards and forest, woodpecker and red fox etc) We have all relaxed and the two children (4&2) have loved the outdoors…

Robert, Anna, Charlotte and Freya

Loved watching the wildlife and birds, was upset not to see the badgers though.

Sophie (11yrs) was thrilled to see a stag in the woods, it made her holiday.

We enjoyed desserts of blackberries, apples and plums.

Alan & Liz

We were delighted by the walks in the forest and the profusion of wild plants and birds. We would like to know more of the history of the restoration of the property…Excellent selection of books.

We love the area, especially for biking. The weather was glorious nearly all week which enabled us to try lots of bike routes.

As two old locals returning from the smoke we really felt miles from anywhere.

Sarah and Nick

Saw plenty of wildlife along sleepy hollow to the left…

What excitement we had when we woke up to see a stag under the apple tree outside the front door… We were pleased to meet with Baby, the hand reared sheep who wanders down the lane like a pet dog – belongs to the neighbour. The holly bushes are in bloom and beautiful. In the field ahead of the lonely building we found an apple tree with an abundance of mistletoe. It was lovely seeing the real deal. Thank you for allowing us to share this special piece of countryside…

what wonderful wildlife, just this morning we watched a spotted woodpecker in the woodpile, and what beautiful orchards. Its so good to see the old varieties of apples, it’s a shame there are not many left in this country anymore. It is so peaceful here, just the sound of the birds and animals to wake you up in the morning, and no light pollution, Thank you.

Karen and Ken

Its been great being able to access the forest so easily. Ted the dog has appreciated the walks and freedom!
