Thank you for a lovely week at Folly View – a full week of unbroken sunshine, and lots of walking on paths in beautiful countryside.

Does the sun always shine in Shropshire?

The accommodation is all that we would require – clean, comfortable, spacious, and secure.

We have been a few times in the past, and probably will come again, as long as it is available.

Folly View – in the heart of the Shropshire Hills

We had a lovely stay – just too short!
The flat is lovely – very well equipped, clean and tidy and Merinda & Lyndon made us feel very welcome – Thank you 🙂
So much to do & see, we enjoyed walking & cycling even if it was very hilly!
Stokesay Castle is definitely worth a visit, as is The Plough at Wistanstow for good food & beer!

Thanks for another great weekend. Spotlessly clean as always. Thanks for all the little extras. See you next year.

Arrived home safely, after a most enjoyable week holidaying in your comfy, well appointed apartment.

We really liked the quiet, tucked away setting, yet an easy walk away from the centre of Craven Arms, shops and other handy amenities.

Thank you very much, Merinda, for your friendly welcome and for the tasty local biscuits, tea, coffee and milk on arrival.

Also, we were much impressed by the excellent standard of cleanliness and your Covid precautions.

Would not hesitate to stay at Folly View again, should we return to holiday in the Shropshire area.

We came here by train, so it has been great to find such good accommodation a few minutes walk from the station. We’ve enjoyed walking in excellent weather for the time of year. We’ve appreciated the maps and guide books.

The picturesque rugged landscapes of the Long Mynd, Wenlock Edge and the Stiperstones are all just a short car journey away

Our second visit. We have had a fabulous second visit in Folly View. We have been for a walk every day – from Folly view up to Flounders’ Folly; Hopesay; also from Clun; Newcastle-on-Clun and Ragleth Hill near Church Stretton – superb view!

We’ll be back again. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Many thanks.

Thank you.

Enjoyed a wonderful stay at Folly View. Our hosts were more than attentive. Thank you very much. During our holiday we visited Ludlow, which is a beautiful town. The castle and market are a must. So is the Cafe on the Green, situated by the river.

Shrewsbury is a shopper’s dream. Take time to visit the parks and the ‘Boathouse’ pub, down by the river.

The National Trust’s ‘Carding Mill Valley’ near Church Stretton is stunning. Enjoy the atmosphere of Ironbridge it’s fantastic.

Happy Holidays.

Folly View 5 stars. Will be repeat visitors.

A lovely warm clean flat. Thank you so much for the wine, biscuits, chocolates & card. It all helped make Mum’s 94th birthday weekend really special. Hope to come back again. Shropshire is just so beautiful. Thank you from us all.

Rosemary, Leicestershire

A very comfortable and spotlessly clean accommodation. Thank you for the little extras!

Hope to see you again in the near future.

P.S. A badger came to visit, in the garden, late one evening!
