Location description from owner

The England region

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.

“What a gem”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2013

This barn is hidden in rolling hills in a beautiful area of Shropshire with stunning views. The accommodation is of a very high spec. and the owners are very approachable and friendly. Dogs are welcomed at this barn with water bowls and towels provided. A truly relaxing holiday is guaranteed at this delightful location, we hope to visit again soon for another great break.

“All round fantastic: views, facilities, experience”

Reviewed 24 Jan 2013

Just back from a wintery week in The Barn...and wondering when we can get back to see it without the covering of snow. The weather-enforced relaxation was just what we needed though. The owners were great, welcoming, helpful, yet unobstrusive. The Barn itself was ideal for us, with a roaring log burner and comfortably/tastefully decorated. The big bonus was a large enclosed field for our dog to run in...she won't be impressed at returning to her local patch ;-)

“Great Accommodatioin in a beautiful spot”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2011

Don't be fooled by the photo's on the website as it really doesn't do the accommodation justice and this cottage is delightful!! The accommodation is really good quality with all the facilities you would need at a fantastic price. The location is a little off the beaten track - but thats why we booked it and it didn't disappoint. There is easy access to the walking in Shropshire and southern snowdonia if you want to venture that far and we also walked a bit of the canal at Welshpool it also has easy access to the facilities in Shrewsbury. (Once you orientate yourself a bit) We were made to feel really welcome by Maria and Ian (and so were our dogs - who got on fine with their dogs!) This is an ideal place to escape from it all. We would also stroingly recommend trying the duck eggs available in the honesty box as well as the victoria plums which are good eating and make great jam!! We are planning to go back and visit again soon!
