This page contains every entry in the visitor’s book for the first year of the cabin’s life, unabridged and in order – you’ll just need to take my word for it that I haven’t surreptitiously edited anything out. Since then the cabin seems to have started to live it’s own life and have its own relationships – repeat and recommendation bookings are over 50%. Thanks to all our guests for their feedback and enthusiasm.

‘ It was a pleasure to be your first guests. We all enjoyed the unique nature of the cabin and its location. It’s an amazing place to spend the weekend, we had a BBQ by the river, saw the lovely views from the fort and made the most of all the food on our doorstep. Thank you very much – we’ll definitely tell all of our friends!’

‘We had a lovely weekend. Great cabin & beautiful tranquil location. We were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed the Magnalonga in Ludlow. We hope to be back’

‘Great log cabin and well appointed. Ideal base to explore Shropshire. Canoed with ‘Sun Valley’ on the Severn – Bridgnorth to Arley and return on the steam train a great day out. Hired bikes from Wheely Wonderful Cycles at Eton – good stop for lunch at baron of Beef Bucknell. Great food at the Unicorn pub Ludlow. Will definitely recommend this place to our friends and will be back. Happy holiday.’
