Squire Farm is located in the beautiful Redlake Valley in South Shropshire, not far from the historic town of Ludlow. It comprises two very different self-catering cottages on a small working farm with sheep, horses, chickens, dogs and cats - and guinea fowl. The farm access is via a farm track, which means that the property is generally quiet, peaceful and secure. There are lots of walks from the farm with beautiful views and breathtaking scenery; it has been a highly contested area in the past and has plenty of history to explore, including a hill fort within a few hundred metres of the door.
This autumn was our second stay at Squire Cottage. We bring our dog to escape the huge firework displays of urban areas. The cottage is nestled on a hillside with beautiful views. A basket of groceries a waited us, plus fresh flowers on the table, such a thoughtful touch.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Xidong. The welcome from the owners was very warm and they were around all the time if there were any problems. The only help we needed was with a couple of missing items in the house but they provided them immediately. The setting was most unusual being Japenese in style, but very comfortable and spacious. The jacuzzi was a real bonus and compensated for the somewhat changeable weather. All in all a lovely place to stay in a beautiful part of the country, with lots of good places to eat nearby.
