We had a gorgeous stay at Penny's house! The gardens and view from the bedroom are stunning. Penny and her mum are lovely - couldn't recommend more!

Amazing Location

The house was in an amazing location with stunning views. The room was excellent and the host provided over and above what you would need for an overnight stay. Highly recommended...

I can't recommend Bowkett's Wood enough: incredible view, beautifully appointed room and we were made to feel completely at home. We found it easily thanks to Penny's directions and arrived to have a glass of wine sitting on the decked area looking out over the fantastic view. The bed was very comfortable and the information pack including menus of local restaurants was much appreciated. We also made use of the separate shower room which was a real bonus. I can highly recommend the breakfast made by Penny's mum - such a nice way to start the day sitting in the conservatory. Also on the day of our check out we had to be in the area until late in the evening and so Penny was happy for us to stay around and use the guest sitting room which is something we absolutely wouldn't have been able to do in a normal B and B. The most remarkable thing about Bowkett's Wood, however, is the value for money. I would have happily paid a lot more to stay here and would absolutely return when next in the area.

Watching the sun set over six counties

I had a lovely stay at Bowketts Wood. Penelope was very warm and welcoming. The room is beautiful, spacious, spotless clean and has everything you could want. The view from the room is superb. I had a lovely time sitting in the garden watching the sunset over five (or possibly six) counties. Highly recommended.

Quite the best yet!

Quite the best value on this tour. Superb view and and excellent facilities and setting for a sunset glass of wine. The view rivals the very best stately homes we have visited. The garden and setting was beautiful. The room was light, bright and spacious and shared the view. Penelope's skills as a professional interior decorator were evident every where. The three generations of hostess were all friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our chats with all three women. The kitchen, dining and sitting room facilities were all excellent. We highly recommend Penelope's place.

Beautiful Place!

The room I occupied at Bowketts Wood was presented to a very high standard. Penelope's flair for interior design really shined through. Penelope's daughter Fern greeted me warmly and made me feel very welcome. I was lovely to wake up to these wonderful views followed by a hot bath in this fantastic room. If you are looking for a beautiful place to stay while in south Shropshire - you'd be hard pressed to find better. Many Thanks.

Words cannot explain

Words cannot truly describe just how wonderful our stay was at Bowketts Wood during the Easter break. My partner & I came here for a quiet getaway and upon our arrival to the cottage, we were greeted with breath taking views of the surrounding woodlands of the Shropshire range. The room itself is just gorgeous – you are treated with a comfortable bed, private bathroom with a Jacuzzi spa bath, flat screen TV, tea & coffee making facilities and the same stunning views right from the bedroom window. Penny and her mother were lovely hosts, and the directions I was given to get to the cottage were really helpful. If you are looking for an idyllic getaway complete with ‘fairy-tale like’ surroundings, this is the place for you – I also recommend the continental breakfast as an additional add-on!
