“Peaceful, luxurious retreat”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This cottage fully deserves its 5-star rating. It is beautifully appointed, full of interesting artifacts and in a glorious location. A 'welcome hamper' greets the guests on arrival, containing milk, butter, eggs etc. but also champagne! The owner is next door, and nothing is too much trouble for him. The views from the terrace are superb, as are the walks in the woods above the terrace. If it's cold and rainy, you either click on the central heating or light the wood-burning stove. The kitchen has every appliance you may need. On the other hand, that area has some excellent eating places, some with Michelin stars.

“A totally wonderful experience”
Reviewed 24 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This was our fourth stay at Dick Turpin cottage in two years and was as magical as our first visit.
The cottage is well appointed and comfortably furnished in an 'eclectic' way. The extensive grounds are available for guests to ramble at will, or one can just relax and enjoy the views of the Shropshire hills.
The village of Clun is close by and is served by two very good pubs. The White Horse in particular serves very good food.
Above all Roger ( the owner and neighbour ) is the most perfect host.

“An amazing cottage with amazing hosts”
Reviewed 2 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have just returned home from a week at this beautiful cottage and once again have had an amazing time. Roger and Burkhard have been such fantastic hosts and even gave us an Easter egg (along with lots of other lovely treats, including an Easter tree and gardens). Once again we were able to relax in this beautiful part of the world and we can't wait to come back again soon to this beautiful cottage.

A fantastic cottage, peaceful and enchanting. We could not have asked for a more relaxing stay. This was our third visit and will definitely not be our last.

“Perfect romantic weekend away in a most gorgeous cottage”
Reviewed 18 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Wow what can I say! Myself and my partner stayed here for three nights at the begining of December and it was the most perfect weekend spent in an extra special cottage in Clun, Shropshire. The owner Roger has tastefully designed a home from home with everything and anything you can think of! From the latest tv to speakers from the Bose stereo in every room. A hamper awaits you upon arrival including champagne. The cottage is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and is well worth it's five star rating. Bath robes and towels also provided for guests in the beautifuly decorated bathroom which also provided various assortments of beauty products. Do not hesitate to book the cottage. We will be back and indeed we will be making an annual visit to this little peace of heaven.
