The Barn description

Holiday home
The Barn is a superb barn conversion on the owners' cattle farm, 1.25 miles from the historic village of Leighton and 5.5 miles from Ironbridge. This single-storey cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms, consisting of one king-size double and one twin, along with a shower room, a kitchen with dining area and a sitting room with woodburning stove. Outside there's off road parking for three cars and a side gravelled garden with furniture and barbecue. The Barn is an excellent base for exploring Shropshire.

The historic village of Leighton, which is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1087, stands in the heart of beautiful Shropshire, and is only four miles from the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, home of the world's first iron-built bridge, built 1777-79. The Ironbridge Gorge is one of the country's most delightful tourist attractions; situated in a lovely wooded valley, the pretty village has many pubs, restaurants, shops and tea rooms. A collection of industrial and Victorian themed museums make up the Ironbridge Museums, including the renowned Blist Hill Victorian Village, where you can step back in time. Enjoy the nearby medieval towns of Much Wenlock, Shrewsbury and Ludlow, as well as many NT properties including Attingham Hall and Park as well as the fascinating Wroxeter Roman City and Vineyard. A wonderful all-year-round location.

The cottage was located within a beautiful working farm. The owner was welcoming, warm and friendly. The location was also brilliant for accessing many of the attractions in Shropshire, being central to almost all of the major tourist attractions.
