Squire Farm is located in the beautiful Redlake Valley in South Shropshire, not far from the historic town of Ludlow. It comprises two very different self-catering cottages on a small working farm with sheep, horses, chickens, dogs and cats - and guinea fowl. The farm access is via a farm track, which means that the property is generally quiet, peaceful and secure. There are lots of walks from the farm with beautiful views and breathtaking scenery; it has been a highly contested area in the past and has plenty of history to explore, including a hill fort within a few hundred metres of the door.
We had a very nice stay at Xidong over a pre-Valentines weekend. The cottage was clean and tidy upon arrival but was on the chilly side with the outside air temperature plummeting in the snow showers. We noted that the heating controller was locked out and only managed to get just-suitable warmth from the convection heaters and wood-burner fire being on constantly. The highlight for us was being in the hot tub during the night-time snow showers. Overall we enjoyed our visit.
