The Granary Family Cottage description

Holiday home
The Granary is a quality cottage in a courtyard setting on a working arable farm in Alberbury. The cottage has two king-size doubles and a twin, each with en-suite, and an open plan living area with woodburner. Outside is off road parking, and an enclosed patio with furniture and private hot tub. The Granary alsohas shared use of a games barn with pool table, TV, air hockey and outdoor children's play area, and is within easy reach of plenty of family days out.

The small rural village of Alberbury sits in pretty countryside, 9 miles from Shrewsbury. There is so much to do in this area, from the ten museums of Ironbridge Gorge to the abbey, castle, shops and restaurants of Shreswbury. There are many National Trust properties within easy reach of Alberbury, including Attingham Park, Powis Castle, Chirk Castle and Erddig. Ludlow, with its castle and timbered buildings, is a lovely town for a stroll and a refreshing cream tea, or step back in time with a trip to Acton Scott Working Farm, seen on TV as ‘The Victorian Farm'.

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.

Play barn was excellent idea as not many places for children without a long drive. Robert Julie very helpfully but not intrusive. Honesty shop was great for bits we had forgotten. Overall loved our stay.

We had a fabulous holiday and 14 of us spent a super week together. The local amenities were good and the owners were superb. A great holiday and very worthy of another visit. Excellent value for money.

A lovely well kept property. The play barns are a wonderful bonus they cover all ages from baby to adult. The honesty shop is a great idea and I have to say bought the best home made Lemon Drizzle Cake ever. Lovely outdoor seating area with a very large hot tub. The owners were on holiday but the Manager was great, nothing was too much trouble for her. Recommend for all ages.

Mrs Michelsen

Clean and exceptionally well presented property and care taken by the landlord and his wife. The hot tub was fantastic, very quiet and tranquil complex even though it was New Year. The play barn was clean and immaculate and safe for toddlers. The high quality of bedding and towels added to the overall enjoyment of our stay. A Christmas tree in the lounge area added to it all.

Had the most amazing time at the granary... It's the perfect location if you want to do nothing but go for beautiful walks and chill out although it's still only 20 minutes from Shrewsbury! We loved the hot tub and the underfloor heating! The rooms are so clean! We loved having the dogs around too! Happy guests and we will be returning
