This property’s idyllic location in the southern Shropshire Hills makes it an ideal location for wildlife enthusiasts, cyclists and keen walkers alike with many well marked paths easily accessible to include the Shropshire Way, Herefordshire Way and Offa's Dyke offering miles of scenic walks close to the border. Other places of interest in the area include Ludlow a vibrant market town that has regular farmers market, a medieval castle and a well attended food festival in September.  A little further afield you will find the towns of Iron Bridge, Leominster and Bishops Castle. The area is also rich in National Trust houses and gardens that open throughout the year, and for historians why not visit Powis or Stokesay Castle. 

Take in the views across the orchard of mature fruit trees before stepping into this beautifully finished barn. A spacious lounge/kitchen/diner offers a warm welcome, with vaulted ceilings show casing exposed beams and brick work that complement the contemporary colours and furnishings that the owner has carefully chosen. The lounge area is the perfect place to relax, light the wood burner on a chilly evening, curl up with a book or enjoy a good film on the TV. The kitchen/diner is open to the lounge with a well-equipped kitchen that’s great for a simple supper with an electric oven and induction hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, dishwasher and washing machine. There is a simple breakfast bar with stools just perfect for dining. And when the day is done there is a king-size bedroom with views onto the gardens, there is also a shower room with shower and WC on the ground floor.

Why not take breakfast outside, the French doors open onto the garden with table and chairs. There is allocated parking for two cars.

CASTLES & CULTURE: You will find yourself in an area adorned with National Trust properties to explore and learn from, in addition to an abundance of castles and ruins that historians will simply adore.

TOUR THE TOWNS: Surrounded by a selection of picture-perfect villages, venture to the wonderful market town of Ludlow, filled with a whole host of shops, cafes and eateries. Slightly further, but no less worth a visit, is Leominster and Tenbury Wells also boast a sublime array of independent and high street retailers as well as idyllic scenery. For a more contemporary shopping experience, Kidderminster is easily reachable by car from the barn for a wider range of amenities.

Lovely cottage in a delightful rural location. Beautiful views from the garden. Although another holiday let next door you couldn't hear anything. Expect it's the thickness of the old barn walls! Apple, plum and pear trees along the drive at the front of the property add character. Cottage is perfectly equipped and very clean.

Oven, shower very efficient, bed very comfortable, good walks, shame no pub but there is a Saturday bus to Ludlow - would recommend the Fish Shop, cheese shop and Tesco is down the hill. Good selection of glassware at the barn including champagne flutes...

Beautiful location and beautiful barn, no pubs etc in walking distance but plenty in near by areas. Loads of splendid walks and countryside to explore. Castles and national trust manors within easy driving. Very well equipped and welcoming. Highly recommend

Wonderful few days away over the New Year break. Generous and welcoming hosts who just left us to our own devices, yet close enough to help when we needed it. A beautiful small barn conversion with all modern comforts, the log burner definitely added to our quiet nights in. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for peace and quiet in this part oRead moref the world Hide
