About the property

4 Bedroom 3 Bathroom Barn In A Countryside Location, Perfect For Family Groups

Chirk 3.5 miles. An large and spacious, detached barn conversion in the Welsh Borders, just 10 miles from Llangollen, in a lovely quiet location surrounded by some beautiful views over the Shropshire countryside. Luxuriously decorated and furnished throughout, providing spacious living accommodation and four lovely bedrooms, this Shropshire barn is just perfect for large groups of friends or extended families to enjoy some time together. This wonderful contemporary barn in Shropshire offers character and some real home-from-home touches, including stone floors, beams, feature windows, underfloor heating, a double-sided wood burner and a lovely large sitting room. The large garden to the front of this barn in Shropshire has an assortment of fruit and walnut trees, and views over the countryside, as well as two patio areas to follow the sun. Close by is the pretty market town of Ellesmere with its attractive buildings dotted between 9 beautiful meres and the well-known Shropshire to Llangollen Canal, in an area renowned as Shopshire's Lakeland. Just 10 miles away is Llangollen, with a dramatic mountain backdrop and boulder-strewn River Dee as the setting for this pretty tourist town, internationally famous for its Musical Eisteddfod. A little further afield from this Shropshire cottage is the Roman city of Chester with racecourse, zoo and a huge array of history, not forgetting its numerous shops, bars and restaurants. This is just the perfect cottage in Shropshire for exploring Shropshire, Cheshire and North Wales to enjoy at any time of the year.

Beautiful, spacious property in the countryside

  • 4 of 5

The Barn is a fantastic property with ample space for 10 comfortably. With its enclosed boundary it is perfect for young families and dog owners. The bedrooms are spacious although the waterbed in the master bedroom may not be to everyone's taste. There are two ensuites, a family bathroom and two separate toilets that have all the essential features however there were a few leaks which we notified the owners of.

The kitchen is large and well appointed and the only snag was the two slice toaster which isn't sufficient when catering for 10.

The downstairs space is fantastic with plenty of room and ample comfortable seating with doors which open out onto a lovely patio area with BBQ and log burner. The kids and dog we brought thoroughly enjoyed the enclosed garden with its apple trees and boundaries to a field filled with sheep.

The location was amazing with a 7 minute drive to the nearest supermarket and easy access to plenty of walks and days out. Take note of the driving instructions sent by the owners as there is one approach road to the property that is a very hairy drive up a steep lane. The other two routes are much easier.

All in all the property is worth the money however if we are really honest it could do with a deep clean and good hoover and some hand soaps in the bathroom would have been a welcome addition however we easily rectified this with a trip to the local shops.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, I am glad you enjoyed your stay. You are correct The Barn really is perfect for multi generational families and the location provides much to do. I am glad you enjoyed the new BBQ area and fire pit, we only extended the patio last year and have really enjoyed the extra facilities ourselves its good to hear the guests enjoy them also. I am glad you found the directions I provide useful, Sat Nav's are not always correct so it is critical that guests follow our guidance. I am sorry though that you did not find everything quite as it should have been, our caretaker was away and a stand in did the change over, I will take up your issues with the stand in to ensure that this situation does not happen again. There can be no excuse on our part this should not happen. I also note the comment regarding the toaster, the next time we buy one I will ensure it can toast 4 slices at once.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at the Barn near St-Martins. Fantastic kitchen (except the terrible coffee-maker and the lacj of tea-towels). Otherwise everything you'll ever need is there. The living room is also perfect, even for a group of 10. I also liked the fact that the property has a fence all around meaning that my dog could happily enjoy the garden without a posibility of escape!

Overall we are very, very happy with this rental and we wil definitely return in the near future. Thumbs up!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review I am glad you enjoyed The Barn. Thanks for letting me know the coffee maker is poor, this is something we can miss if we do not use it ourselves and we will look to replace it. Will ask the caretaker to leave out more tea towels in future.

A lovely escape

  • 5 of 5

This barn is a lovely getaway for a large family. We celebrated my Dad's 50th there, and had a warm weekend despite the freezing temperatures outside. It is in the middle of nowhere, but close to supplies and amenities. I took my nephew for a short walk and we saw sheep, cows, horses and tractors which are awesome for city children! The house is well equipped for cooking, with DVDs, toys and with a lovely book corner.
