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.

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.

Despite the changeable weather (what happened to the “Indian Summer” which had been forecast?) we enjoyed visiting places we’ve been previously & discovering some new places – hopefully we’ll be back some time in the future.

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!

Thank you.

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.

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.

Thank you for the comfortable and clean holiday let. Also thanks for the welcoming gift – most appreciated.
It was interesting and enjoyable to watch all the bird around Folly View.
Thank you very much.

Jack & Doris, Telford


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.

Graham and Rachel, Birmingham


A very enjoyable holiday at Folly View – thank you for the treats, information about the local shops and places of interest to visit. We will return to continue exploring.
Rusty soon settled in and did try to make friends with Hettie and Dillie! Woof!
Everything at hand for cooking, all so neat and clean.

Gerald and Connie, Stafford


Another lovely stay at Folly View.
A wonderful place – so welcoming and comfortable – everything I need. Very central to places to visit and some lovely walks with my dogs. Thank you.

Linda, Sasha & Blue, Wirral


First visit, but definitely not the last!
What a fabulous week we’ve had in Folly View. Very clean, comfy and warm flat, everything we wanted for a lovely stay. Thanks for the beer, biccies and milk etc.
Not a bad week weather wise, we’ve been out every day. Have done some lovely walks, plenty more to do! We’ll be back!
Thanks once again.

Paul and Carol, East Yorkshire


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


Lovely place to stay, owners (and their dogs) delightful!
Altogether a great holiday in beautiful accommodation 11/10!

Mick, Carol & “Gladys” The Cockapoo!, Norfolk


We had a lovely fortnight exploring small towns & villages in Shropshire (despite the weather) & even ventured into Wales!
The accommodation is 1st class & is very well equipped (with a decent set of sharp knives) – being self-catering ‘veterans’ we tend to bring things with us which, in the past, we’ve found lacking – we didn’t need them this time.
Thanks also for wine/milk/biscuits welcome pack!

Tony & Janet, Lancashire


We’ve spent the last 2 weeks rediscovering places we saw in 2013 & discovering new places. Amongst the highlights were the Cliff Railway at Bridgnorth & Daniels Mill just outside the town. We’ve also been to Herefordshire & Wales, plus of course various towns & villages in Shropshire!
For a nice evening meal we can recommend the Stokesay Arms: it’s not much to look at but the food is good & reasonably prices, we also discovered the “Mill on the Green” Cafe in Ludlow – good food, good service & a beautiful location.
P.S. Better than a doctor’s prescription any day!

Tony & Janet, Lancashire


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!

Sarah, Aaron & Morgan, Bedfordshire


An ideal mid-point for us to meet up and be able to bring Carmel’s dogs. We all had a lovely time in your comfortable, warm flat which had so many extra little touches which added to the experience. Thank you for the beer & cider. We may come back sometime, we enjoyed meeting you.

Keith, Ann, Carmel,Yorkshire


Another relaxing stay in your lovely flat – beautifully appointed and comfortable as always. Thank you for the wine, delicious local apple juice, and biccies – much appreciated! Thank you also for the lift from the station. Hope to see you again.

Jenny, Cheshire
