This superb detached barn offers spacious living accommodation and entertainment space, ideal for larger families or groups of friends.

Dating back to the 17th century, these barn conversions are set on a 100-acre, family-run working arable and livestock farm, just a few miles from Whitchurch. They share a multi-sports court for mini tennis, badminton and football with other barns on site, as well as a fantastic indoor heated swimming pool. The swimming pool is available for exclusive use for each barn and booking slots are available throughout the day, booked on your arrival. The swimming pool is open all year round but opening times may vary. A woodland picnic area lies a short walk away from your barns and there is a fantastic enclosed toddler play area available for children under 6 years. Walkers can explore the Shropshire Union Canal, just 5 minutes away, and the Shropshire Way footpath runs through the farm, while coarse fishing is less than 5 miles and horse riding 1½ miles away. For cyclists, the Mercian Cycle Path runs past the farm. Whilst the barns enjoy a peaceful rural setting, they are still very close to amenities. Whitchurch is approximately 2½ miles away, the delightful market town has many splendid buildings from medieval, Tudor and Georgian times, all dominated by St. Alkmund’s Church. Internationally renowned for its clock production dating back to the 1650s, Whitchurch is known as ’the Home of Tower Clocks’, and a fine example can be seen on one of the barns. There are many excellent shops, pubs and restaurants in the town which is perfectly placed for touring all of Shropshire, North Wales and Cheshire. Attractions close by include Ellesmere with its beautiful lakes, 11 miles, a variety of National Trust mansions and gardens, and the historical city of Chester with its excellent shopping and famous races, 25 miles, with the Blue Planet Aquarium close by. Chester Zoo, as seen on TV’s ’Secret Life of a Zoo’, is only 30 minutes away and is one of Europe’s largest zoos, helping endangered animals from all over the world. Other places of interest include Hawkstone Follies, Cheshire Ice Cream Farm, RAF Cosford, Fenn’s and Whixall Mosses, and the incredible Ironbridge Gorge. For great shopping, there is Shrewsbury with its medieval architecture and riverside walks, and Telford with its indoor shopping centre. Shop and restaurant 2 miles, pub approx 1 mile. This property is one of five, which share a courtyard.

    Lovely large converted barn with added bonus of swimming pool (although small but kids still enjoyed using it) and tennis court/play area which is shared with other guests. The owner was very welcoming and suggested some local age appropriate places to visit that would suit our group. They also didn't bat an eyelid when one of our group accidently broke the fridge water dispenser lever (we paid for a replacement of course). Personally I thought the sofas could do with updating as they are very soft (apart from one of them which was a bit firmer). Be aware that the roads are very narrow and you may come across a tractor coming the other way and you need to drive into Whitchurch (only a few minutes away) where they have ample supermarkets to choose from. Would highly recommend staying here.

    This was the perfect venue for a week long holiday for three generations of our family. There was loads of spaces, lots for the children to do with toys inside and outside and the pool. We were blessed with good weather so even got to enjoy the terrace overlooking the pond. We loved the view from the barn and the two resident ducks kept adults and kids alike amused.
