Thatch Close Cottages & Woods of Whitechurch Kind Regards, Guest name Virpi Kelly Property Valley View Thatch Close Cottages Date of stay Fri, 08 Apr 2016 to Mon, 11 Apr 2016 Cleanliness 5 Customer Service 5 Comfort 5 Condition 5 Location 5 Value for money 5 Average rating 5 Review title Valley with a view Review My husband and I stayed with our three cocker spaniels from 7th April to 11th April 2016. The cottage accommodated my husband (who has an above knee amputation and uses a wheelchair) very well with various adaptions available. It was very light and airy with loads of space to turn the wheelchair around, and for our dogs not to feel cramped. The view from the cottage was stunning, rolling fields of grass as far as the eye can see. We were able to park right outside the front door, which has a small metal ramp to aid access over the threshold. A welcome basket with goodies was provided on arrival, and the next morning Edward (the owner) brought us some freshly baked bread and a bottle of red wine. Later in the day we also had some cake brought to us, which was lovely and also freshly baked. This is a good base for exploring the surrounding area. We found Cannop Cycle centre, where you can hire pushbike/mountain bikes etc, which was only approx 20 mins away and perfect for long walks with the dogs. There's a cafe' as well serving breakfast, lunch and afternoon snacks.The scenery around this county is breathtaking, valleys and hills, streams and rivers, lovely old houses. Another strong point of this cottage was the proximity of 'Woods of Whitchurch' and 'The Potting Shed' in Whitchurch (they're only a few hundred yards apart on the same road). 'Woods' is a wonderful bakery/corner shop with a fantastic assortment of every day items and cakes and ready made meals (cooked from scratch on the premises) and 'The Potting Shed' serves breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. The food is great, very tasty, at reasonable prices. It's such an asset for Thatch Close cottages to have these facilities nearby (max. 5 mins by car) so the local businesses can be supported instead of having to rely on larger chains. The cottages are situated in a very quiet and peaceful area. Although it rained for some of the time we were there, it was mostly in the evenings and overnight. I can't wait to return when the weather is better and take advantage of the outside seating area looking out over the valley. It's really safe for dogs to run around as well as it's far from the (not so busy) road. The owners have a dog themselves. The cottage was immaculate when we arrived. Edward showed us how everything worked, and there are instruction leaflets available as well. Well done Edward and Marion!
