We arrived at Troopers Barn where the owner Marianne had put in place as a welcome, chocolate, wine and a home made Victoria sponge which was delicious. Our family who joined us from various parts of the country were impressed with the accommodation and the location being about 3 miles from Craven Arms in a quiet scenic part of Shropshire and midway between Ludlow and Ironbridge about 10 miles away. An alpaca farm was next door and you could even take them for a walk.

Unfortunately we had 7 days of rain and apart from a walk along the picturesque Cardingmill Valley we were mostly confined to sightseeing but there is much to see and it didn?t dampen our enthusiasm but it was nice to come back to the warm spacious Troopers Barn and indulge in the hot tub for a while. We will return someday, hopefully with better weather. There are some super old inns for dining out within a short drive if you didn?t want to take advantage of the excellent kitchen facilities as it is very well appointed.

We are currently staying at Troopers Barn with family members from across the country (the furthest travelling from Southampton) We made the decision to travel despite the weather, as the owners had sent an email to advise that they would be around to provide any support required. We are so glad that we braved the snow as we have had a fantastic weekend. Some members of our party were diverted because of an accident and became stuck on a difficult piece of road, including myself, partner and 8 week old baby, but as soon as we called Marianne and Stuart, they reassured us that they would come and find us and take us to the property. Stuart then returned to our cars, moved them to a place of safety and then drove us to collect them Saturday morning once conditions had improved. Some of our party decided to travel Saturday morning in light of the conditions becoming worse late Friday night so nobody had to miss out on the fun!

We have had a great weekend and made use of the sledges provided in the games room! Sitting in a lovely warm hot tub in minus temperatures was also great fun!!! There was a homemade chocolate cake, bottle of wine and fresh flowers on the table when we arrived and the cottage is absolutely beautiful. The rooms are immaculate and finished to a lovely standard. I would highly recommend Westhope retreats and we will definitely be back (hopefully it will be warmer so we can make use of the BBQ!!)

Many thanks again to Marianne and Stuart for all of their help and ensuring that we had the best weekend! Xx

Cottage Review:  

We spent a fantastic weekend here with friends to celebrate a special birthday.

The cottage is spacious, stylish and well furnished with a perfect mix of modern and traditional; it has everything you could possibly need and the personal touches of flowers, wine and cake made it that extra bit special. We were very appreciative of the basic provisions too, such as loo roll, soap and cooking oil. The cottage was clean, apart from a few cobwebs (in an old converted barn this is inevitable) but we would have benefited from having some sort of kitchen cleaner available in the cupboard in order to aid the cleaning up after food had been cooked, eaten and prepared.

The cottages are located in a remote hamlet near to Craven Arms - as a consequence, you have no phone signal, so keeping in touch with loved ones back home is reliant upon the WiFi; unfortunately while we were there we did experience some connection issues. That said, Marianne was extremely helpful and explained what to do if the WiFi signal goes - she was helpful (and friendly) before and during our stay. We didn't move our cars throughout the weekend and instead enjoyed the various walks that are easily accessed from the complex, thus making the most of the stunning scenery.

The only thing to be aware of is that the cottages are all adjacent to eachother in a small complex, and whilst the back garden is fenced off in this cottage (resulting in Troopers Barn enjoying privacy where the hot tub is) other cottages (and hot tubs) are overlooked, so if you want to experience complete privacy this is not the place for you. Also, we found that the curfew of 10pm for the hot tub a little inconvenient - other places we have stayed as a group, due to being private, have had no time restrictions with hot tub use.

If you did want to explore further then there are plenty of places easily accessible by car (Ludlow and Ironbridge for example), but as this is an area we are very familiar with, we chose to 'stay put'.

I would definitely recommend a stay here.

If you are looking for a venue for a large family celebration, then look no further! This cottage along with the other 4 are all finished beautifully and packed with character. The provisions in the kitchen were excellent and the home made cake and wine were a lovely special touch! The games barn or the 'party room' as we called it - is where all 38 of us joined together in the evenings to celebrate my 40th birthday, which was ideal and then the hot tubs were the cherry on the cake. Set in an idyllic location surrounded by countryside and has lots of lovely walks to blow the cobwebs away! The owner, marianne was so helpful throughout the lead up to the weekend- answering all the little questions I had. I can't recommend this place enough - don't think twice about booking your break here.. you won't be disappointed.

Stayed here in early December for 3 nights (Fri-Mon) to celebrate my mum's surprise 70th birthday with family. 22 in all ranging from a few weeks old to 70, oh and a dog! We stayed in Troopers Barn and also the 3 bed houses, Wain and Turnip and it was absolutely amazing, and between us all it was a bargain too. Depending on your sat nav depended on whether you ended up down a farm road but we got there in the end. The host Marianne was fantastic, from the booking stage until departure. There was the most gorgeous homemade cake, chocolates and bottle of wine

We have just had the best weekend staying in Troopers Barn and the Olde Cowshed.

Marianne is such a great host. My husband was thrilled to be taken on a tour of the land with Brian on his Mule!

The accommodation is first class, our cottage was set up for 17 people to eat comfortably. Lots of bathrooms so no waiting for a shower! Plenty of seating, too, DVD player, games, books. Kitchen is great, very well equipped including a beautiful cake on arrival and wine!

The hot tub was a real highlight. The younger generation made use of the gym and games room. We w

Stayed with a party of 11, which included 5 children. We all agreed we had a wonderful stay. The barn lacked nothing!! It was spotlessly clean and very well maintained. We loved the hot tub and children loved the outdoor shower ( they've never been so clean) beautiful walks and scenery and not too far away from places to eat and shop. Highly recommended
