Folly Foot Barn description

Holiday home
Folly Foot Barn is a detached wheelchair accessible pet-friendly cottage in Hinstock near Market Drayton. The cottage has a double bedroom, a wet room and an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area. Outside is off road parking for two cars, a lawned garden with furniture and BBQ, and turnout is available for two horses by prior arrangement. Folly Foot Barn makes a peaceful base for enjoying the lovely countryside around the cottage on foot or by bike, or for touring the historic towns, NT houses or pretty villages of the area.

The small village of Hinstock in North Shropshire is set 5 miles from the town of Market Drayton and offers the majestic St. Oswald church, a shop, a pub, tennis courts, a playground and the Quarry Wood Nature Reserve.

A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.

Folly Foot Barn was a home from home. Very comfortable and warm and situated in lovely countryside. I enjoyed cosy evenings in in front of the log burner and slept well in a comfy bed. Peaceful and quiet location. The owner is dog friendly and made me very welcome too. Hope to visit again in warmer weather.

The cottage was amazing, it had everything and more. The owner was so helpful and couldn't do enough to help. Loved the break and will be back again.

The description of the property was extremely accurate. It was set in a beautiful and quiet place even the owners house was next door. It is a haven for someone who is looking to escape from it all and although we do not own dogs or have horses it did not matter at all.

The cottage was very warm and comfortable - a 'must' in the winter. It was lovely to talk to the owner and her dogs, see her horses and enjoy the eggs from her hens.

Folly Foot Barn was a very comfortable cottage and in a lovely setting. The owner was a brilliant host and told us about lots of places we could go.

The cottage was stunning, spacious and full of an opulent peaceful atmosphere. The bed was unimaginably comfortable. It is rural but with main roads to all points two minutes away. The village is small and pretty with a welcoming pub, post office and shop. The owner is very welcoming, helpful and always on hand for advice.

The owner is lovely and helpful. The cottage is just right for two people and is very comfy and cosy. It is ideal for relaxing or, if you have a car, exploring many places of interest around Shropshire. If you love watching horses grazing whilst washing up - you will love this property! We enjoyed our stay very much.

A delightful spacious barn conversion with a really comfortable bed. We will definitely return.

It was in a secluded area yet you had access to most of Shropshire. The cottage itself was modern yet had a old fashioned feel. The owner was very accommodating in ensuring you had everything you needed, and also advised on the most interesting places to visit. Would have no hesitation in recommending this as a must go to place to visit. Loved it.

The cottage is in a quiet location and the owner is friendly. The cottage was better than we expected, hard to find any faults at all.
