Built in 1840, Yews Barn was converted in 2003 by an award winning builder. Whilst retaining its original characters like the exposed wooden beams, it has all the modern facilities expected to a high standard. Such as a four poster bed, spa bath, central heating, TV/DVD, telephone and WIFI, ample private parking and large patio in walled courtyard, iron gas stove and a fully equipped modern kitchen.

Honeymoons, anniversaries, touring/walking or just a 'getaway' break - whatever the reason we provide a warm, friendly service helping you make the most of your stay.

Complimentary wine and flowers are provided.

The idyllic peaceful hillside location (no neighbours!) provides a perfect quiet retreat with walks and some of the best viewpoints in Shropshire literally a few minutes walk away. It is a great touring base for the rest of Shropshire with its central location in the county, just off the A5/A49 and 5 minutes drive from historic Shrewsbury.

To the north is Ellesmere with its meres rich waterfowl. Also there is the mystical Hawkestone Park with its follies and caves.

To the east is Ironbridge Gorge, a World Heritage site and birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. Nearby are the remains of the Roman city of Wroxeter, and Wroxeter Vineyard

To the south is Ludlow, renowned for its castle and Michelin star restaurants. Also there is the old spa town of Curch Stretton under the Long Mynd and Stretton Hills, known as 'Little Switzerland' in Victorian times.

To the west is Oswestry with its ancient hill fort. Then on into mid Wales with the beautiful Powis Castle nearby
