Visitor Reviews


" Just had to say what a great stay we had at Shippon Cottage. My sisters from America and Scotland and myself from Wales with our families stayed for a week at the cottage and had the most wonderful time. It was such a peaceful setting surrounded by countryside but also very convenient for Shrewsbury. In the village of Pontesbury, there was a great buthers/deli which sold great delights and nearby was a great local pub and fish and chip shop. There are other great places to visit including Minsterley. The accommodation was spacious and relaxing and had everything to hand. It was a great place to stay and we will be returning on a future visit to the area. "

Mrs W Isle Of Wight

Ms F Strathclyde

Mrs. B

" We had a short weekend break at Shippon cottage in Shrewsbury. The cottage was very clean, warm and comfortable. It had everything we needed. We really appreciated all the little extras, for example the biscuits, milk, soaps etc. My niece and nephew had great fun in the games room. The rooms were very nicely decorated and well prepared for our arrival. The weather was lovely and it was nice to be able to eat our breakfast outside. We would be very grateful if you would pass on our thanks and appreciation to the owner as we forgot to fill in the Visitor's book. "
