Rosebud Retreats’ reviews

Will be coming back!

Absolutely stunning property. Beautifully decorated and with all the mod cons.
Bed was so comfy. Felt very at home.
Perfect place for exploring the local area
or just chilling by the fire.
Colin and Bev are both very helpful with advice and suggestions on walks and places to visit nearby.
Looking forward to revisiting soon.

Superb cottage & Great location

What a fabulous weekend we had staying in this beautiful Shropshire cottage for a family get together.

On arrival, we had a private car parking area, more than enough for our 3 vehicles, and were greeted by the sound of singing birds.

In the cottage, there is a lovely feel, very clean throughout and a good sized kitchen area with the dining table allowing a good social experience to start our weekend off.

The owners have drinking facilities including help yourself ground coffee machine (and instructions how to use if needed)

The living area had a pre-organised wood burner – just needing a match to get it going and plenty of spare wood outside. This warmed upstairs a treat so when it was bed time, the rooms were nice and snug.

The bathroom was excellent with a double shower as well as lovely sized bedrooms with a nice new spongy carpet to walk on.

The rural location provides the privacy wanted but was not far from the local village or within a short driving distance of the lovely towns of Wem, Whitchurch, along with Shrewsbury and Chester being easy to reach. Plenty of walking places to go as well so really does have a great location for all.

Throughout our pre-stay, we found Colin incredibly helpful and easy to communicate with helping with some initial enquiries.

We will definitely stay again and thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely cottage.

Hosts were very quick to reply to messages and it was very comfortable. ☺ The appliances were everything you needed and the bathroom was particularly lovely. Additionally we were left a little Easter treat and some wine which was a really nice surprise.
Great stay in clean and well equipped property ☺ The property had everything you could wish for be that kitchen equipment, much of which appeared to be new, radio, sound bar, Xbox and even phone chargers. Easter egg/wine and welcome pack very much appreciated. Beds were comfy, huge shower and freestanding bath. ☹ For our short stay it was amazing, cannot fault.
Exceptional ☺ Lovely property with very responsive and helpful hosts. The welcome pack was much appreciated, thank you.
We had a great Christmas stay. Very accommodating hosts. Nice seasonal touches. Prosecco and treats ☺ Lovely cosy cottage. All mod cons. Nice xmas decorations. Very homely and comfortable.
