"Lovely area to stay in, perfect for visiting so many interesting & beautiful places. Cottage is quaint & as expected, with a homely feel. Although the small garden is enclosed, it would suit smaller dogs as the fences are only waist height & there's a pile of rubble, mud & wood alongside of one part, meaning it was a constant worry for us that our dog might decide to go off investigating in the road only 10 yards away. Be aware if you need to keep in contact with the outside world that the only mobile network that gets ANY signal in a 5-10 mile radius is Orange & as there is no landline/internet in the house, be prepared to cross the road over to the old cobwebbed phone box with a bucket load of change (60p to connect a call these days)!The house is comfortable for 6 to sleep & lounge with a lovely burner in the sitting room & a TV/DVD player with a selection of DVD's for all tastes. Sadly the kitchen layout makes it impossible to open the oven door if the dining table is in use. We seated 4 at the table & were confused how the other 2 chairs (kept in hallway) would fit at the table. The table in the garden only has 4 chairs also, so not sure how 6 people would eat together? Equally baffled as to why in an area of outside pursuits & beautiful scenery there would be no washing machine in the house, surely 6 people would need to do some laundry if staying for a week, especially in wet weather with mud on their gear from all the dog walking etc. It transpired that a dishwasher had been installed where you might expect the washing machine to be!!If planning on home delivery shopping (we stayed for a week & the nearest 'supermarket' wasn't the best in all honesty, so glad we ordered in for arrival) give them a copy of the directions to the house from your confirmation email as Sat Nav takes you away from the cottage & up a muddy steep track. We would stay in this cottage again as the location was perfect for all we wanted to do, but we would take more clothes & plenty of loose change. "

"This impressive end of terrace cottage is situated nicely on the edge of Clun - a small village, but within easy walking distance of the centre. We chose it principally because it is ideally situated for our week walking the surrounding Shropshire Hills. We found the cottage to be exactly as advertised and depicted on the web description. It is modernised, very clean and tidy, well appointed and has everything within it that we needed. We did not do much cooking but there were plenty of utensils. All the basics (sometimes missing in rentals) like washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets and toilet rolls were provided. The cottage and everything within it were in good condition. For our specific needs it ticked all the boxes, these were; central to the Shropshire Hills, within walking distance of a village centre including a pub, included Wi-Fi and off road parking. There are two pubs in the village both offering local beers (in once case brewed on the premises) and food. There is also a small supermarket with lengthy opening hours. The only possible downside for some - though not us, might be that the small rear garden (with a magnificiant rural aspect) is half decking and half stones - there would be nowhere with grass for young children to play. This proved to be an excellent choiuce and we recommend it."

"Keys Cottage is situated on the outskirts of Clun, but within walking distance of two pubs, a good cafe, a fish and chip shop, a small but well-stocked village shop/post office and a lovely souvenir shop (Caractacus) in which one can waste half an hour very easily! There are lovely walks nearby and and there is of course the castle just over the bridge which is near the village centre. The cottage is comfortable, spacious, warm (we were there for the second week in February) and incredibly well-equipped. It's been furnished with an eye to luxury and good taste but bearing comfort in mind. The view from the back of the house is fields and when it snowed we sat watching the whirls of snow whilst seated at the dining table cradling large mugs of hot tea! Keys Cottage is the best accommodation I have stayed in during about twenty years of renting holiday cottages. My sister and sister in law, who were the other members of the party, both agree that we would like to go back there for a restful holiday next year sometime. We recommend it unreservedly."

"I worry that in winter it would be very damp. The stairs are very steep from the bedrooms to the loo and a word about this may be useful on the website for any who are not overly agile or who do not like heights. The kitchen was extremely well equipped but as others noted in the comments book, I do not think it would be suitable to sit more than four and at a squeeze at a table located inside the old chimney place.I also worried a little about security as the door is single paned half-glassed and both chubb and top lock would be easily accessed if the window was broken.The cottage would benefit from an update in furnishings especially the bath (plumbing), which filled very, very slowly.Ample hot water and generally very comfortable and quiet. Wearing slippers there was a very slippery bit as you entered the kitchen from the hall but a relocation of the nonslip bathmat solved this safety issue"

"We booked at short notice and were pleasantly surprised by what we found. The property was compact but comfortable and clean, with a large king size bed and a well laid out shower room. We found our hosts friendly & helpful and appreciated the "welcome pack." There is some noise from the A49 as mentioned, but it is not obtrusive inside the house, so not to us at least, a serious issue. The Cottage is well sited for the local countryside but also the many local English Heritage and National Trust sites. It is also well sited for the Severn Valley and Welshpool steam railways. We enjoyed our week and would recommend the property for a couple seeking a pleasant bolt hole away."
