The Old Bull Pen


Approached by a gravel driveway, the cottage has a sun-trap courtyard with a large patio and shrub beds on the south side.  A second patio and lawn at the rear, which catches the evening sun, overlooks the stream and dingle, replanted 2011/2012.

Accomodation:-  Wifi internet access
The whole cottage is at ground level and so there are no stairs.  It has three bedrooms, all en-suite: the master bedroom has a king-size bed with superior en suite featuring a spa bath with shower over, a toilet and vanity basin.


The large lounge with 40” TV  has a woodburning stove and external french doors to the front and rear.  Internal french doors lead to the kitchen/diner with a separate utility leading to the rear patio.  Off the hall is a guest cloakroom with toilet and washbasin.  All furniture is oak.

The Old Bull Pen was all that we anticipated - thank you very much.  Acton Scott, Dudmaston & Croft Castle strongly recommended.
Newton Family, September 2014.

Another fabulous week in Shropshire at the Old Bull Pen.  We’ve had a wonderful time visiting, Hoo Farm, Powis Castle and riding on the Severn Valley Railway.  We were also lucky enough to visit Burwarton Show - a great day out.

Our 4th visit to the ‘Bull Pen’.  Super as usual.
Hancock Family, Devon. February 2015.

What can we say about The Old Bull Pen which hasn’t been said before.  It is Five Star and more and would put a lot of top hotels to shame.  Norman & Lynda are marvellous hosts and we look forward to coming again in May to Threshers which is just as lovely.
Corner Family, Nottingham. February 2015.

Absolutely fantastic.  Awesome break.  Cottage and facilities first class.
Copping Family, Warwickshire. March 2015.

Another superb break - hospitality and comfort outstanding.
Danskin Family, Scotland. May 2015.

Very spacious and comfortable accommodation and a very warm welcome - thank you for the cake and hamper.  Such a peaceful spot - love the stream and the walk around the field at the back.  Ludlow Castle was fantastic, kids loved it.  The food and craft markets were great, lots of goodies to take home! We hope to be back soon.
Oppenheimer Family, Bucks. May 2015.

A haven a of relaxation and tranquillity.  Thanks once again Norman & Lynda.  Looking forward now to Christmas (at Ashford Farm).
