Guest comments for Castle Farm Holidays Shropshire in Shropshire

We have all loved our stay here. A wonderful location with lots to do. Would recommend Llangollen (steam railway, horse drawn canal boats and aquaduct). Woodpecker Cottage was all we hoped for, and more! We hope to come back in the future as there is so more to see and do. Thanks for everything.
