Ivy Barn, as its name suggest, was originally a barn, built from traditional Grinshill sandstone. It has been lovingly restored to provide accommodation for groups of up to 4 people. Many of the barn's original features have been incorporated into the conversion, such as oak beams, stone-slated floors and a wood-burning stove. All the accommodation is spread out over one floor and French windows from the sitting room lead to a small, charming garden; perfect for enjoying a spot of outdoor-dining in the summer months. Off-road parking for 2 cars is available, but the local shop is a short stroll away and the local pub is just over a mile away.

The Heart of England/Peak District

A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.


Clive is a small village located around the west side of Grinshill Hill. Grinshill Hill is a local beauty spot and there is a nearby mine from which the Grinshill sandstone was excavated to be used in building the village of Clive. Attractions are wide and varied in this part of Shropshire and there is plenty for outdoor-types, such as walking and cycling. If you prefer to take things a bit easier, but still want to enjoy the stunning scenery, a boat-trip on the Severn will relax and inspire you. The nearby village of Wroxeter pays testament to the region's historic past, having uncovered a myriad of Roman artefacts, such as the magnificent Roman Baths. There is even a Roman vineyard which still produces wine for sale to the public.

Conversion was beautifully designed and carried out, but pity that the second bedroom was not larger. Kitchen needs a fridge/freezer, ot at least a fridge with a frozen food compartment. Low beam over… More
