About the property

one double bedroom apartment top floor of Barn in gorgeous countryside

The holiday accommodation was converted out of the top floor of The Barn in 2012. It offers an attractive and comfortable one double bedroom apartment situated a short distance from the main house but completely independent. It is set in idyllic countryside overlooking beautiful park and woodland about 2 miles from the nearest hamlet and 5 miles from the nearest town, Bishops Castle. Perfect for romantics, walkers, bird watchers or people who just want peace and quiet and to hear the owls and see clear skies at night. There are excellent pubs a short drive away and 2 Michelin starred restaurants in the area. Other attractions include hang gliding off the Long Mynd, cycling, music, food and arts festivals. The Shropshire Way is on the doorstep and Offa's Dyke, the Long Mynd and the Stiperstones within easy reach. The beautiful Georgian town of Ludlow is half an hour's drive and Shrewsbury with its fine buildings, restaurants and shops, about 40 minutes. Medieval Stokesay Castle and the famous gardens at Powys Castle are a short drive and the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site is about 30 miles away.

Cosy apartment, lovely quiet location

  • 4 of 5

Warm welcome in a lovely barn apartment. Lots to do, we walked to the Stiperstones, visited Bishops Castle for lunch, and Powis Castle with it lovely gardens. A very relaxing few days just what we needed.
