“A great family destination”
Reviewed 12 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Our extended family booked all 4 cottages / barns in this farm conversion, including Pinstones, for a one week holiday. The weather was excellent and we enjoyed walks, excursions and lots of country pubs! The youngest member of our family, just 1 year old, fell in love with the chickens, we improved our snooker, table tennis and darts skills in the communal games room, and loved the Scandinavian style barbecue hut where we came together for dinner some evenings.
The cottages each have their own unique characters, some on one floor, others on two floors, all were clean, well equipped, comfortable, and ideal for relaxing. Tim and Sally were very welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. Thanks for a great stay!

“An AMAZING find!!!!”
Reviewed 11 April 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I was looking for somewhere to go with my husband and our friends for his birthday... searched on Trip Advisor and found Pinstones Cottage and what a find. Tim the owner was very quick to respond to my many questions :) The property was just what we wanted, somewhere away from the city, somewhere we could just chill out. My friends live in Leeds, we live in Reading and so Pinstones was perfect for meeting half way.

Pinstones cottage is beautiful, set in a valley and what sounded like a river running was actually the sound of the trees - soooo tranquil. The accommodation is of a very high standard, large and spacious, beautifully decorated with everything you need for a stay and Tim had even made us a fruit cake (thanks Tim it was really yummy)...

The highlight for us was the BBQ Hut - well worth booking.. rustic looking but with all the mod cons including an ipod docking station. Nothing nicer than laying next to a fire, listening to music and chatting with your friends - it was sooo relaxing and we didnt have to clean up after ourselves - bonus!!!!

Every single one of us enjoyed our time there and there is nothing that needs changing except the weather but even in February it was lovely to be there, and we will definitely be booking another visit...

Thank you sooo much for making my husbands birthday weekend a memorable one Tim and Sally.

Thanks for a fantastic review - we are delighted to hear that you had such a good time. Thank you too for leaving the cottage so clean and tidy. As for the BBQ hut, we had a family staying recently who booked it 3 times in the week they were here!

“Lovely cottage, fabulous location, great for dogs”
Reviewed 18 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We had a lovely weekend at Pinstones, Tim, the owner was there to welcome us and show us around. Cottage was extremely spacious, clean and comfortable. Beds were especially comfortable. Lovely setting with lambs nearby and chickens. The communal games room was a great bonus as was availability of fresh eggs. Dogs loved it, lots of walks close by. The homemade fruitcake which greeted us was a real treat. We can highly recommend the tally-Ho for food and hospitality. I am very grateful to Tim for posting a couple of items of clothing to me which my daughter left behind. Excellent communication, we would happily return to Pinstones and plan to do so over the summer.

“Great cottage in a lovely quiet location”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed at Pinstones for a weekend relaxing and walking. The cottage was well equipped, warm and welcoming. Tim provided us with all the info we needed, and we certainly made use of the excellent games room with full size snooker table, table tennis and darts – a real nice touch. Although the owners live on site, we had our own garden to the rear, so it still felt private and that we had our own space.

The location is superb, nestled in a quiet valley, with great cycling and walking opportunities direct from the door. The Long Mynd and Clee hills are both nearby for more adventurous walks/rides. Pub was a 10mins walk away although we didn’t use it. All in all a great place to stay and would definitely go back.

“Excellent cottage”
Reviewed 19 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Stayed at Pinstones cottage for 2 nights in April 2015. The cottage was spacious, clean and comfortable. The highlight of the stay was the "BBQ house" which is a small wooden house with benches and a built in fire/bbq inside it. It was a great little addition. Would recommend staying here and would stay again myself.

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. The BBQ house is getting increasingly popular - we may end up having to limit our own use of it!
