Fantastic property. What an amazing view. Low stress. Everything in the cottage was really high quality. Everything provided. Plenty of towels and necessities. Will be returning again.

If you want to escape from it all and relax in the countryside this is the perfect getaway.

We had a wonderful stay at Tan y Graig annex: everything was provided that we needed; the place was very clean, warm and comfortable and the views are stunning, even at night for star gazing.Its an incredibly peaceful place so great for helping you to switch off. The narrow country lanes werent a problem for us (although I can see why some drivers Read moremight not like them!) and theres lots of choice for food shopping at Oswestry which is just 20 mins drive away. We hope to go back very soon! Hide

Absolutely fabulous stay and would go again! Lovely comfy bed, great views and quiet location - just what we needed. Please take care to take along some basics with you as there is no popping out to the shop! Also take care to plan your journey as the postcode does not get you there.

There is everything you need for a holiday. The owners are swift to respond and sorted a small glitch with towels very swiftly. There are fantastic views to see and the building is warm and cosy for the days when weather is not so good.

A wonderful retreat. Amazing views and very homely feel to the annexe. Dex the dog found the views mesmerising. After a stressful year, we had a restful and relaxing time despite the weather. Would definitely revisit sometime in the future. Thank you to the owners for making our stay enjoyable.

very nice cottage quiet and peaceful, beautiful views , however be aware access to it very difficult with such narrow roads, but in such a rural location you have to accept it is how it is.

A lovely cottage with a stunning view. It was very dog-friendly and it was relatively easy to get to places in Shropshire. The owners were helpful and accomodating. The large window offers a fabulous view, it can get very hot in the main room. Overall, I would definitely recommend Tann Y Graig!

The photos of the accommodation and view look great on the website but don't do it justice - it's even more beautiful in reality. The roads are a bit scary for the last few miles, but well worth it.

A really beautiful cottage in a stunning location. So quiet and peaceful but then close enough to civilisation to be able to drive places in 15 mins and the views are simply amazing. Sitting on the patio with a glass of wine listening to the birds and animals and not hearing traffic (or anything else!!) was just what was needed. Came back in the daRead morerk one evening and an owl landed on a low tree hanging over the drive and watched us drive down. Thank you for a great break, we will be back. Hide

This is a beautiful property which is well finished and furnished. But its biggest selling point is the view, it is simply spectacular. Perfect for a peaceful break where all you can hear are sheep and birds. The only point to note is the property is remote, which is part of its wonderful charm, but its worth knowing its 15 minutes drive across sinRead moregle track, tiny country lanes. I found them stressful but they didnt stop us returning a second year because the view is AMAZING. Hide

Accommodation fine in itself. Fantastic views. Some basic welcome items would be good as so far from shop. Need to be aware that the public road to and from cottage is a very narrow single track one and full of blind corners etc., not a place to stay if you want to be popping back and forward to accommodation during the day. Take everything you migRead moreht need with you. Nice place but would not personally return due to surrounding access roads. Hide

We had a lovely week here, enjoying the incredible views and the remote location. The annexe is nicely furnished, spacious for 2 people and very cosy which meant we were comfortable even when it rained too much to be out and about. We arrived late in the evening and were glad that we'd brought dinner and tea/coffee/breakfast - there are no local shRead moreops and basic provisions aren't supplied. But there are plenty of shops etc a 15-20 min drive away...if you can tear yourself away from the view :-) Hide

Lovely location off the beaten track. We loved that it was isolated but within reach of Oswestry and several other attractions. The building is really well appointed, comfortable and quiet. Communication with the owners was swift and the building had a comprehensive information pack.
