About the property

Barn in Ryton, Nr. Shrewsbury, Shropshire, - Great Location For Walking & Cycling

Four Star Gold Rated Property. For availability see our website Cuckoo Croft is located in the quiet Shropshire hamlet of Little Ryton, an ideal base for family holidays and get togethers with friends, and for exploring the market towns of Shropshire and the surrounding countryside. The Croft has been sympathetically converted from an old cow barn and stables, it’s agricultural roots being reflected in the modern architectural detailing. With triple glazed windows, underfloor heating, ventilation system and solar pv panels this property combines contemporary styling, comfortable living and green credentials. There are five bedrooms, three double rooms and two triple rooms. Three bedrooms have en suite shower rooms and two share a family bathroom. The spacious open garden is enclosed by oak palisade fencing and hazel hurdles so is safe for children to run freely. The large patio has outdoor eating facilities and offers spectacular views out over the South Shropshire hills. The historic county town of Shrewsbury is within 6 miles of the property, as is the popular market town of Church Stretton. (Both are on the bus route which comes through Ryton if you prefer not to drive.) For walkers and off-road cyclists the Long Mynd, Lawley and Caer Caradoc are easily accessible whilst for roadies, there are a variety of scenic routes for every level of fitness! Our local village hall holds regular Flicks in the Sticks film events and The Horseshoes Inn in Dorrington (about 1.5 miles away) has a good reputation for lunch and evening meals. For very local entertainment your neighbours have two friendly dogs and some nosey (and photogenic) highland cows and calves. To make a booking at Cuckoo Croft please follow the link to our website, or if you have any questions, please contact us.
