Interaction with guests
We are happy to interact as much or as little as guests require. We respect our guests' wishes.
We love our rural position. It is close to the facilities and amenities of Ludlow, Church Stretton and Longmynd (just a few minutes drive away) but is peaceful and secluded with gorgeous walks and surrounded by glorious countryside.
There is a bus stop just a mile or so walk away and the town of Craven Arms with its main line station is a walk away on the other side of Norton Camp.
Other things to note
Shropshire has more castles than any other English county and is steeped in history and legend. It also has stunning scenery, hills, woods, rivers and fields. Mainly a farming community, the local people are friendly and welcoming.
We don't have any strict rules, but simply ask that guests treat us and our property the way they would like to be treated - with respect.
We do allow pets and have pets ourselves.
We don't allow smoking inside the property.
Check-in is from 3.30pm and check-out on the day of departure is 10.30am.
We do ask that guests advise us if they are not planning to go out during the day as it is difficult to service the room if they are staying in all day.
We are a couple who have been together for 26 years. We have cats and two dogs and my husband is a keen golfer. I have an ex-racehorse and enjoy riding and walking my dog. We like to socialise and go for meals out. We have both travelled quite a lot.
5 things we can't live without: wine, good food, good friends, animals and space.
We are quite relaxed as hosts and just work on the basis of mutual trust and respect. We both have a good sense of humour and are very down-to-earth.
We don't have a life motto but if we did it would probably be to make the most of life while you can and be yourself.
