”5 couples have enjoyed a fabulous few days in this beautiful spacious house. Perfect location for walks from the house. We all agree that it’s the best house we’ve stayed in the 5 years of annual mini-breaks together. Very well equipped, comfortable beds, a home from home. Thank you.”
Lynams, Hookes, Rickers, Coopers & Howells, Nottingham area – May 2017
”We had a lovely weekend in Shropshire booked through yourselves, thank you. The booking process was very straightforward and both Charles and Lin were extremely helpful. The break was with my extended family and they all asked where I made the booking as they were so impressed, I recommended Staycation to them and would do to others and use them again. It was a great help to be able to contact them at any time in the lead up and get a prompt reply. The welcome pack was super, I may have missed details of it on the website as it would have been useful to know the contents – e.g. we ended up with a surplus of butter as I had taken supplies!
Thanks for a super break, I shall treasure the memories of a wonderful time”
C Summers – April 2017
”We have loved staying in this beautiful house for our family celebrations. We have been comfortable and warm in the spacious surroundings and have all loved the garden – especially the swing – with its superb views. Access to your walking country literally by the front gate has been an added bonus. Thank you.”
Three families from Holmforth, Harrogate & Hampstead – October 2016
”A very peaceful and comfortable house in a location that takes the breath away. Could never get bored of the view! We’ll remember this place.”
Joe, Florence and family, Cotteridge, Birmingham – August 2016
”Wonderful location; the children certainly enjoyed the space of the garden, especially the ‘big’ swing! Three generations celebrating our Golden Anniversary, we had plenty of room for everyone to enjoy their activities. A great week!”
Three families from St Albans, Merseyside & Windsor – August 2016
”Absolutely stunning place with fantastic scenery all around. We came to celebrate a family member’s 80th birthday weekend and we couldn’t ask for anything better! The house was fantastically equipped with something to do for all ages. We look forward to our next visit!”
The Hudson Family – July 2016
”I loved the swing: make sure you go on it and try to beat my record. It was just under the branch.”
The Hudson Family Junior – July 2016
”Our party of ten had a wonderful relaxed holiday. The house was beautiful, immaculately presented with wonderful views. The surrounding area did not fail to impress us with stunning scenery and the local town very close by had everything one might need. Would recommend this house to anyone.”
Mrs Bennett – July 2016
”Very enjoyable week in a lovely location, beautiful views and lots of nice walks. Recommend The Green Dragon, Little Stretton – food and service brilliant.”
Sarah, Brian, Gail, Lee, Patsy, Mark, Sheile & Rob – 11/07/15
”A lovely few days break again in this wonderful house, so relaxing – like being in another world. Once again took a walk along Carding Mill Valley, enjoying a cream tea in the tea rooms. Followed by a drive back ‘over the top’ – such a wonderful view from up there. Followed by another frantic session on the football table! Plus a game of pool. Can’t believe it’s time to go home again. Thanks for a really great time.”
Lynn, Mike, Joy, Allan & Tony – 29/06/15
”What an amazing place to spend a few relaxing days. We enjoyed a scenic walk up the valley where we got a great view of The Oaks. After a walk around Shrewsbury on Saturday we returned back to The Oaks to enjoy sangria in the garden catching the sun. Saturday evening was spent in the games room where the family got quite competitive at football, great fun!! We had afternoon tea in the Lion Hotel in Shrewsbury, very good value and lovely. Thanks for an amazing few days, we would love to return.”
The Lane family – 29/06/15
”A lovely comfortable house. Perfect for a 70th birthday with old friends.”

The Fletchers – 28/05/15

The Robinsons, Roberts and Seelys – 22/05/15
”Wonderful stay to celebrate an 80th birthday. Lovely house, gorgeous views and fantastic to be able to just walk out the gate onto the National Trust land.”
The Bailey family – 27/04/15

Freddie – 16/02/15
”What a great house for 3 small families. Plenty of space and ‘special’ rooms to discover, we loved the table football and the kids enjoyed a home cinema session of Ice Age II! The freedom swing or ‘altalena della liberta’ as we called it was literally and figuratively a breath of fresh Shropshire air. The weather wasn’t great, alas, but the kindly provided binoculars allowed us to get a closer look at the wild horses nearby.”
Matt & Jennifer – 16/02/15
”Thank you for an amazing time at The Oaks. This was my second stay and it was even better than the first time. I had a great time and I will hopefully come again.”
Hebe & family, London – 02/01/15
”Thank you for the incredible stay here at The Oaks. This was my first visit and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I will hopefully returning again.”
Lara & family, London – 02/01/15
”It was a lovely stay. This was my second visit to The Oaks and enjoyed it even more than the last time! It was a brilliant stay and thoroughly enjoyed it. I especially enjoyed walking up Caradoc and once we reached the top the views were spectacular. As well as this, tobogganing was very fun and enjoyable, even though I wasn’t the best at it! The walks up through the valley were very relaxing and walking up the hill was such fun! The views are stunning and very picturesque. After a long day walking, it was very nice to sit in front of the fire with a cup of tea and relax. In addition to this, the swing was very fun. The games room was very enjoyable and everyone was very competitive when playing table football and pool! Thank you for a brilliant stay!”
Lina & family, London – 02/01/15
