The Woodsman exceeded our expectations and the hosts, Tabitha and Stephen were so helpful and very generous with the extras in the property. The Woodsman was decorated for autumn with fabulous autumnal touches throughout. The hot tub was a lovely perk and on our last night the stars viewed from the tub were amazing. Being on a farm, it was great watching the sheep being rounded up and fed in the mornings.

Location wise: we walked to the Loyton Moss, Norbury Junction and a few halls (about 6 mile round trip) Dorve to Newport, Eccelshall and The RAF museum at Cosford.

Our stay was perfect and would love to return!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the woodsman. The perfect romantic birthday weekend. I'd love to recommend it to our friends but I'd like it to stay our special secret x

We had an amazing stay at the woodmans it was one of the best we have stayed in and we will 100% be returning everything had been thought about with detail and care we had a fabulous stay and would highly recommend

We had an incredible, relaxing stay at the Woodsman. The cottage was well appointed, had everything we needed and lots of thoughtful touches. The wood-fired hot tub was a particular highlight. We took advantage of the breakfast hamper and were able to cook it out on the bbq. It was so peaceful and there was a great pub around the corner for our evening meal. Highly recommend!

Had a wonderful honeymoon at the woodsman and will be coming back in September for my husbands birthday. Seriously cannot find a fault and would highly recommend!

The property was just beautiful and the added touches the hosts left, such as a welcome tray with biscuits and hot chocolate was so thoughtful.

The location is perfect to unwind and disconnect and being able to pick vegetables from the patch and use the bikes to explore the local area was wonderful.

We’d highly recommend The Woodsman to anyone.

Cannot praise highly enough. The most idyllic, relaxing, comfortable setting for a romantic getaway.

Excellent booking system and description spot on. I’d definitely book The Woodmans again and use Classic Cottages for further breaks.
