Grade II listed barn conversion situated on the owner’s working farm in the Shropshire countryside, just a short drive from the popular town of Ludlow.

This property enjoys a fantastic location within 165-acres of farmland, beyond which there is miles of beautiful countryside to be explored and enjoyed. Bircher Common is within walking distance of the property, giving access onto the Mortimer Trail: a 30-mile walking trail taking in the best of the Shropshire and Herefordshire countryside. Also within walking distance is the pretty village of Orleton, where visitors will find two welcoming pubs, ideal for a quick pint or perhaps a hearty pub lunch. The National Trust property of Croft Castle is just a few miles away, a stunning manor house surrounded by 1500 acres of grounds. For those who enjoy sampling the local food, the town of Ludlow is just a short drive away and offers a wide range of restaurants specialising in local food, as well as the annual food festival.

On entering this Grade II listed property, guests will find themselves in the upper-floor open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with its attractive beamed ceilings, large corner sofa, and dining table. The kitchen area is well-equipped with everything that guests will need including an oven, hob, microwave, and dishwasher, whilst the washer/dryer can be found housed in a separate utility room. Taking the stairs to the lower floor, there are two of the property’s bedrooms: the first of these is a super-king size room which can be made up as a twin on request, and benefits from an en-suite shower room and WC. The second room on this floor is a king-size room, again with an en-suite shower and WC. Both of these bedrooms have their own TV and DVD, as do the two further bedrooms which are located downstairs on the bottom floor. The first of the rooms on this floor is a super-king which can be made up as a twin on request, and has an en-suite shower room with WC, whilst the final room contains a king-size bed with an en-suite bathroom offering a shower-over-bath and WC. There is also a convenient separate WC situated on the property’s middle floor.

There is plenty of outside space with this property, not only the 165 acres of farmland, but also the garden which has a spacious terrace with garden furniture which easily accommodates eight guests or 10 guests if you book the Parlour next door, whether they want to enjoy alfresco drinks in the evening or take their meals outside. There is off-road parking provided and there is the possibility for guests to stable their own horses should they so wish, at an additional charge via arrangement with the owner.

  • 4 bedrooms: 2 king-size and 2 super-kings which can be made up as twin rooms on request
  • Possibility of accommodating an additional guest on request, at the price of £50 per week, or part thereof (please arrange with the owner)

A family gathering, 4 "siblings plus spouses", on a pre-Christmas get-together. I think this was the 8th time we have met thus; all were in agreement that the combination of location, en-suite bedrooms and a very well-equipped house will be hard to beat. A friendly welcome, any extra kit needed readily to hand, amiable dogs for the dog lovers to scRead morehmooze with; we all had a great time! If we can persuade the London-dwelling pair to book a day off and leave early on the Friday (they had a bad experience of the M40) I think we'll be back.... Hide
