Enjoy the views over the renowned Stiperstone and Longmynd from the patio of the detached secluded barn. Alternatively walk around our 5 acres of private gardens or stretch yourself and walk the Long Mountain from your front door! Set near the top of Long Mountain but still only being approx 15 minutes from the centres of Shrewsbury, Welshpool, Montgomery, and Churchstoke, The Barn is a beautifully appointed detached grade 2 listed converted barn in an elevated position with commanding views of the Shropshire hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty.
The area, being so tranquil, is ideally suited to outdoor activities such as walking, cycling, bird watching or riding, horse riding is available at our neighbouring Long Mountain riding centre or alternatively arrangements can be made for horses to stay in our field next to the barn if you would like to bring your own.

The Heart of England/Peak District
The modern Olympic Games have their roots in the Shropshire town of Much Wenlock. In 1850 local self improvement guru William Penny Brookes launched the first annual games in the village as a distraction for a local population whose previous favourite pastimes were drinking heavily and fighting. The games grew in importance and Brookes was a driving force behind the eventual launch of the modern Olympics in 1896. Sadly he died the previous year.
Shropshire, particularly the south of the county, is something of a magnet for geologists. There are more rocks of different ages here than any area of similar size in the world(dating from 700 to 200 million years ago), and places like Ludlow and Wenlock Edge have even given their names to geological periods. The world's oldest known complete fossil was also discovered in Shropshire at Caradoc.
There are several venues within easy reach offering food and drink in a wide range of establishments from very traditional country settings to the more modern gastro pubs and restaurants.
Other attractions within easy reach include:
- Ludlow – A beautiful town with a castle, medieval and georgian buildings and endless top restaurants
- Severn Valley Steam Railway, Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway.
