Glenfruin Cottage – a really lovely cosy country cottage well equipped, smart yet homely.
Great helpful hosts and a great location for exploring the area.
Had the weather been better, the garden would have been lovely to relax in but we had to swap that for a real fire instead most evenings which we both enjoyed and relaxed by with a glass of wine. I think we’ll be back!

Thanks again, Alex & Lance, Telford, Salop
