June 2019 – Chestnut

As last year, a comfortable and happy week catching up with family in the area.  Just what the doctor ordered.

July 2019 – A really lovely place to stay, breaking our journey between Oxfordshire and The Lynn Peninsula.  Chestnut cottage has provided everything we needed for our stay with our daughter in a wheelchair.  The grounds and surrounding footpaths have given us a perfect introduction to a very picturesque part of the world.   But, most of all, it’s the people here we are most grateful to.  Our last minute booking could not have been handled more smoothly or kindly by Lesley, and Bill and Janice have been so friendly, kind and considerate.   A warm welcome we have so much appreciated.  Thank you everyone.  We won’t forget Newton Meadows and hope to come again to have a proper look at Shropshire.

July 2019 – Chestnut

Everything just perfect.  What more can we say.  We will come again.  Thank you.

August 2019 – Chestnut

As above.  Most enjoyable and everything well organised.  Extremely comfortable and in a superb setting.  Many thanks.

October 2018 – Chestnut

As we both suffer from allergies it is such a relief to stay in a cottage without pot pourri, air fresheners, reed diffusers etc. etc.!   Just fresh air – wonderful!   We love the view from the sun lounge – wish we had such a view at home.

September 2018 – Chestnut

Ideal base for exploring area.  A really lovely cottage – comfortable and clean,  A great welcome and everything was excellent,  We looked forward to relaxing after a day out and about.

August 2018 – Chestnut

A most wonderful place.  Love your lake and wildlife.    Had a most enjoyable 25th wedding anniversary for my daughter and husband.  Marvellous meal at the Moat Shed, Wem.  A most unique place and wonderful food.  Thank you for your kindness.

August 2018 – Chestnut

What a gem!  So pleased Sally found this lovely location,   You could not have been more welcoming and obliging.   The cleanliness,. convenience and facilities are excellent.  The children have been in their element, able to run, play and explore in safety.  It has been ideal for a family re-union.  We’ve all had such a good time and I’m sure you’ll see us again fairly soon – if you’ll have us!  Many thanks for your thoughtfulness.

August 2018 – Chestnut

We have enjoyed our stay in the cottage so very much.  Children have enjoyed it as well.  Have been here before and watched it go from a barn to beautiful cottages and finally got to stay in one.  Thank you.  We will be back.

July 2018 – Chestnut

Up from Plymouth visiting family in the area.  What an absolute gem of a place.  Cottage is is 1st class and the warm welcome we experienced has made me not wanting to go home.  The view is outstanding, watching the sun setting each night and so peaceful.  Can’t wait to come back.  Thank you.

May 2019 – Oak

Our family stayed in Oak and Chestnut for our daughter’s wedding at Pimhill Barn just down the road.  We also used the Garden Room for 3 days so that our daughter’s friend could prepared all the flowers for the wedding.  It was a perfect location for us all and worked really well as Newton Meadows is so close to Pimhill Barn.  Lovely gardens too for some pre-wedding photographs.  Thanks very much to all the team at Newton Meadows who were so helpful.

Lovely place, very friendly staff, had a nice stay.

July 2019 – Oak

Stayed for a few lovely days for our niece’s wedding at Pimhill Barn.  Arrived too early but still given a lovely welcome and served coffee by the pond.  Gorgeous surroundings and friendly people.  Will definitely recommend to friends and family.  Ate twice at Red Lion in Myddle and enjoyed each time.

August 2019 – Oak

Another lovely stay at the cottages.  Grand-children, although older, still enjoyed their stay.  Very good meal at the Bridgewater Arms and also at The Armoury in town by the river.  Once again thanks to our hosts for making this a lovely relaxing week.

August 2019 – Oak

For some in the party it was their 5th visit and for others their 4th..  We all had a fabulous week.  Hosts welcoming as always.  Everything clean and tidy. A great base for trips out.   “The Shropshire Lady” a 60 feet narrow board, that can accommodate 12 people with 2 in wheelchairs.   Thanks to our hosts for letting us hire in an electric profiling bed, which meant clearing one of the bedrooms.  Our teenager very much appreciated having that bed.  We would recommend to friends and no doubt we will return one day.

August 2019 – Oak
