    About this property

    " The house felt so homely and everything we could have needed was right at out fingertips. The house was beautiful, in a beautiful spot. We had a great time in the local area; Hawstone Park Follies and Shrewsbury Prison Museum. We also went to Alton Towers and Chester Zoo, so plenty to do if you are prepared to travel a bit. "
    Dawn-marie ‐ 1 Oct 2021
    " Luxurious, comfortable and has everything provided you need for a short or long stay. Hosts are brilliant, Sally greeted us and showed us around and then we were left alone to enjoy the property and surroundings during our stay. The homemade cake was a bonus, very delicious! Hot tub was phenomenal. The property is very private, in a peaceful location, and a great base to explore the surrounding area. We recommend you check out Hawkstone Park Follies and Colemere lake. Sorry we were in a rush to leave that we forgot to sign the visitors book but we give this property a 10/10, would definitely come again and have already recommended to friends. Thank you Sally and Alan! "
    Barbara ‐ 1 Sep 2021
    " We had a lovely relaxing break and Sally the owner left us a lovely homemade cake for when we arrived. Will definitely be going back. "
    Steve ‐ 1 Aug 2021
    " It's spacious, very well equipped, comfortable, beautifully designed and decorated and in a great location. Even better it has a wonderful hot tub, and fantastic patio windows which open onto a beautiful decking area and superb garden. With the patio windows open it feels as if the garden in part of the house - simply gorgeous. Sally, the owner, was there to meet us which was very pleasant and helpful (this doesn't usually happen these days - a key safe is more normal). The owners live nearby, but the properties are completely separate. It's good to know that help is there if needed. We'd certainly book Vitula Cottage again if we're in the area. "

    "Cottage was very clean and had everything we needed for all weathers. Peaceful setting and lovely uninterrupted views. Warm and welcoming generous hosts. We really did have a lovely stay - thank you!"
    Jennifer ‐ 1 Jul 2021
    " It was detached and in lovely peaceful surroundings overlooking fields. Whilst the owners were close by, it felt very private. Sally's lovely homemade cake was a nice welcome gesture. "

    " “Everything about the cottage was spot on, it was so relaxing and peaceful, we had a homemade cake left in the property to welcome us, Sally met us on arrival and explained things to us, and if we had any problems she was just next door, not that we had any though, We enjoyed it that much, as soon as we arrived home, we booked again for next year,” "

    " “Stunning property. It’s location is excellent and the decor is fabulous. Sally, the owner was there to greet us and gave us a quick tour before letting us settle in. She’d left THE most fantastic cake as a welcome gift. There was everything we could possibly want. Very comfortable seating on the large leather couch, bi-fold doors which opened onto decking leading down to the conservatory with its hot tub. There was an open air eating area and a simply huge garden with mature trees. The bed - comfiest ever! Loved watching all the wildlife and listening to the birds. Thank you Sally and Alan, for allowing us to share your beautiful home. We so appreciated it. We’ll be back.” "

    " “It was absolutely stunning, everything you ever need is there. The sofa was so comfy, the kitchen was just a dream kitchen. The beds were comfy the bathrooms were so clean. The hot tub was just a cherry on top. The view from the lounge was just beautiful, we saw rabbits, squirrels and birds all playing in the garden. So quiet and peaceful. Honestly if you have doubts about booking... don't! You will not regret it. Oh the home made cake was absolutely delicious. Sally and Alan are perfect hosts, there are right there if you need them but also leave you alone to enjoy your holiday away. Definitely will be booking again soon” "

    " “We stayed October 2019 and have booked again for May 2021, would love to stay again this year but it’s pretty much booked up. Beautiful cottage in stunning grounds. The views and sunsets were outstanding. Very private. Everything you could want and need. Hot tub In the conservatory was a welcome addition for relaxing after a day of exploring in Shropshire. Very clean. I Have nothing but positive things to say about this place. Highly recommended. Oh and the delicious homemade Victoria sponge was to die for!” "

    " Meet every expectations the owner left you to your own so had privacy. But if you needed any help you could speak to Sally. Friendly cat which stayed outside but would welcome you in the evening on your return from a day out. Would definitely recommend. "
    Mrs Howe
    " Scrupulously clean and had everything in that you could reasonably ask for. My only comment would be is that the conservatory where the hot tub is situated needs duck boards or something similar. The mats were very slippery once they were wet. Otherwise it was perfect. "

    " We arrived to a home baked cake and received a warm welcome from the owner who handed over the key and ensured we knew how to use a few things. There was a fully equipped modern kitchen and 2 bedrooms with an en suite each plus another bathroom. The cottage was in a very quiet area and we had a very relaxed time, special thanks to the jacuzzi. 11/10 stay and will definitely be recommending this place in the future. "

    " She met us at the cottage when we arrived, despite the late hour, and took us through FYI's. She also left us a lovely cake as a welcome gesture. The cottage is beautiful and very well maintained. The facilities could only be improved with a tumble dryer (sad to hear the one that used to be in the property was not treated well). If returning to Shropshire I would definitely book Vitula Cottage again! "
